Wow...almost a year...

Can't believe it's been almost a year since our last post! So much has been going on and we've been so busy. Our little lady will be two at the end of this month. She is so amazing and such a great little girl. She loves to sing, dance and is so much fun! What a great and challenging age. We're going to be busy starting renovation projects around the house, maybe looking for new tenants and thinking about expanding our family by the end of the year. Where does the time go?

Where has the time gone?

So since it's been forever since I've posted a blog, I thought it was about time! Taylor is 15 months now and is becoming a little lady! she runs and plays, talks and is so much fun...and also a handful! After 15 months of working at night and staying up all day with her we are taking our first steps at going to daycare. Taylor has had an amazing sitter since October of last year and she will no longer be a full time nanny. So, we're taking this opportunity to put her in daycare twice a week. She'll be going to school with teachers and have a curriculum and get to learn, play, run and have a blast....I will get to sleep. Finally...I will miss being with her all day but know that she will benefit from daycare and I'll be more productive when we are together. Victor and I are doing great, he will be turning 33 this friday, we celebrated with a cookout and Victor finally got to be a lobsterman for an afternoon. I hope to have pictures up soon! We are losing our tenant but have potentially found some long term students who will move in in August. We will be busy getting everything ready for their arrival. Always something in our household...never a dull moment!!

She loves the Easter Bunny!!

I need to start by apologizing. It's been a really long time since I've updated this blog but the reality is....I just don't have time. Gone are the days when I worked and went to school, had time to hang out with my friends and family, catch a movie and a million other things I used to do pre baby. Don't get me wrong-I wouldn't change it for the world. I just have my priorities in line, and unfortunately-updating my blog isn't always one of them! That being said-I finally found a moment to keep everyone posted to the world of The Ross Family!

Things are busy as always. I have been picking up extra shifts at work to help with some of our upcoming expenses and it keeps me tired (as always!) We are getting ready for Easter, Taylor's first birthday (oh, already!) Renovating our bathroom, other house projects and a trip to Spokane Washington. You know, just your typical springtime stuff!! Never a dull moment....

Taylor is growing into a wonderful little girl. She can walk on her own but chooses to walk holding your hand. She says Ma Ma Dadee and is attempting to say puppy....along with a lot of gibberish. She has 8 teeth, needs her third haircut and is eating table food and whole milk. She is a very active, happy little girl. Everyday is amazing with her.

We're planning her first birthday. So soon!! I can't believe a year has gone by. Parenthood has been the greatest adventure!

Today I took Taylor to meet the Easter Bunny. She was in LOVE. She squeeled with delight and hugged him multiple times! She's also been holding onto her bath toys Pocoyo and Pato all day (she dropped them when the Easter Bunny came over to her) She is currently sleeping with them clutched in her hands! It makes me smile....

9 Months Old and counting....

Sorry It's been so long since I've updated this blog...seems we just barely have time to get things done around here that updating this site has been put on the back burner. We have a very active 9 month old that is standing and crawling everywhere. Taylor is desperately trying to walk and is curious about everything around her! The end of April will be her first birthday and we're already getting ready for it! Time is going by way too fast!Taylor is getting bigger day by day, she has 6 teeth and loves to eat finger foods (Guess she can do things on her own and doesn't need us!) Everyday is so much fun, she's such a happy baby and loves to laugh and giggle!

The Wonder of Christmas....

What a great first Christmas as a family!! Victor and I had such a great time watching Taylor open presents and have so much fun!! I worked Christmas Eve, so Victor took Taylor to my Aunt Sandy's house for dinner and to visit. Then we opened presents Christmas morning. Victor got me the most amazing present...a beautiful camera! Even more of an excuse to take more photo's than I already do (I take ALOT!) We then went to my Aunt Karin and Uncle Steve's home in New Hampshire and had dinner with my family. Taylor got to see her new cousin again, and she is in LOVE! We stayed the night and had breakfast the next morning with my sister, my brother in law, my mom, stepfather and my grandmother. My mom informed us that they have decided to relocate closer to Stephanie and I!! Such exciting news!! here are a few pics of our first Christmas....

Latest Update!

So much has happened since my last post I thought I'd update on a few things!! Most importantly, We have a new addition to the family...My sister has given birth to a beautiful baby girl named Natalie...Congratulations to Stephanie and Nick!! She was born today and weighed in at 7lbs 8oz...both Mom and baby are doing well!!!

As for Victor and I we are out and about more now that Taylor doesn't mind being in shopping carts and sitting in highchairs at restaurants! We're so lucky!

Taylor has 3 teeth with 3 more on the way. 2 on the bottom and her top "fang tooth" or as Victor calls it her "can opener" is coming through! 3 more top teeth are on their way. She's also started to crawl...when she feels like it. She still prefers for you to hold her hands and let her "walk" around!!! Enjoy the pics and video!!
