Happy Baby...Happy Mommy...

As I said previously, Taelyn is happy, happy, happy all the time now. Seth and I reflect back on her first 4 months (the colic months), and what seemed a nightmare at the time, is a distant memory. Its amazing how quickly you forget the crying and sleepless nights when you have a baby that is just happy all the time. Good times...Good times!

Seth made a little fort for Taelyn to play. She loved crawling under and around like a little house. We had a blast! These may be my favorite pictures of Taelyn because it shows how she is just laughing all the time. Seth says
she has my laugh because it comes straight from her gut, and she really feels her laugh.

On the flip side to happy baby is curious baby. She is right on the cusp of walking, and boy can she get around! I have to watch her like a hawk because she will get into everything and at lightening speed. We have been told by our mothers that we were both climbers and escape artists. Clearly, Taelyn has taken after us. I'll let you know later if that's a good or bad thing.

That whole line that all mothers tell their kids, "God will pay you back for all this when you have children." No doubt, he had Seth and me in mind because our child is the exact replica of us and all our mischievous traits. But, I gotta tell ya...I just love her spunky little personality, and I can't wait to see what kind of young lady she grows up to be.
