How we welcomed Briggs into the world

I went in for my 38 week check up and I was feeling VERY uncomfortable. My blood pressure was a little high (due to the pain I was in) and I was having some contractions. The doctor came in to check me and come to find out I was 4cm and had started to thin out! I was SO glad and had, had my bags in the car praying he would keep me!
I was admitted immediately and the process began.
I got my epidural pretty an hour after I was admitted because I was so uncomfortable.
My contractions stayed very regular about every 3-5 minutes, but I wasn't dilating anymore. I was admitted around 5:00p.m. and Briggs finally arrived at 2:04 a.m.
Everything went smooth and it was a pretty much painless delivery. AMEN!

A very proud Grammy (my mom).

My dad, Grandaddy.

Grammy times 2 (Adam's mom).

I LOVE this picture! Kennedy already being a big sister.

Briggs is already a month old. I can't believe how fast time is going by.

We are adjusting and doing great! Everyday is so wonderful and I'm trying to embrace every moment with both of my little ones.

Kennedy's first field trip

Kennedy's first field trip was to our local corn maze/pumpkin patch. They also have animals, a hay ride, a tub of corn to play in, and many other little things for them to do!
She absolutely LOVED it!
It was so neat to watch her with her classmates. Interacting and playing with them. They have the funniest conversations!
She had to sport her pumpkin shirt made by my good friend Jenn!

Going in the corn maze with cousin Bryce.

Picking out her pumpkin.

These two pretty much hung out the whole day.

We had a blast.

Lets just say mama was wore slap out by the end of the day!

Pregnancy update

Yikes, it's been a while.
Time is actually going by pretty fast this time around and I'm SO thankful for that. The sickness is still lingering but I'm still managing to keep growing....(as you can see!). I don't have much energy and the little I do have i spend it with my little one.

Baby Briggs Adam Taylor

From left to right: 5month, 6month, 6.5months and 7months.

Just a Little update on some random things:
I'm 29 weeks and counting.
Seeing the doctor every 2 weeks now!
I have a shower coming up in the next 2 weeks.
Kennedy is LOVING pre-school!
The nursery is almost complete (pics to come soon).
I crave pizza!

Hopefully, I can somehow get back in a routine of blogging. I spend a lot of time relaxing now so I have NO excuse!

I look forward to catching up on blogs and posting!!!

My little girl is getting SO big

OK, lets get this monkey off my back.....
I've been trying for weeks (yes, weeks) to post but haven't found the energy or time (time to get off the couch and do something). I'm getting some energy spurts here and there so I'm trying to take advantage of that!

This summer has completely flown by.

We had several mini trips to a local water park, we took a small vacay to the beach and had a quick trip to a larger water park. We've had a blast this summer and so has Kennedy. Now it's winding down and my little girl has started her first year of preschool.
The first day, while we were getting her ready she says "mommy, WILL you and daddy just drop me off please!" YIKES, where did this come from? Bitter sweet I guess. No tears from her. I just got a little choked up!
Her big girl backpack and lunch box.

She wasn't to interested in taking a picture with mommy (and baby...21 wks and counting!).

Getting ready to go into class.

And...the nervous finger in the mouth!!

She was a little shy at first but she opened right up.

Now we're on second week and doing great. Every morning she ask if it's time for school today?

I'm glad she's loving it and I'm enjoying very quite mornings sipping on some coffee watching Reggis and Kelly. At least until baby Briggs gets here.

And yes, finally a name. Biggs Adam Taylor!

A little update on baby:

Growing, and SO AM I!! Goodness this belly is getting out of control and early.

Sickness, is still hanging around but not as bad.

I'm 22wks.

The nursery is coming together (post pics soon).

That's pretty much it!

Maybe my next post won't be a month away!

Pregnancy progress and some randomness

These past 2 months has sure been a struggle, but FINALLY things are getting much better. After 2 1/2 weeks of an IV hook up and a Zophran pump I have finally got over that pregnancy sickness hump. I am 100% better and completely enjoying pregnancy number 2!
I'm almost 17 weeks and growing everyday it seems like.
Last week we went for an early sonogram and I'm EXCITED TO SAY/SHOUT.....we're having a

BOY!!One of each! We couldn't be more excited over our wonderful news. Kennedy is too! I look forward to sharing our journey of the expanding Taylor family!

Here is just a little recap of what's been going on.

Last month our church had V.B.S.

The theme this year was the Big Apple!
All of the little ones sported these cute hats.

The was last night. They done a small performance.

The whole V.B.S. group.

Kennedy and cousin Caleb.

We had our 2ND annual 4Th of July cookout. We just had friends and family over. And of course enjoyed some fun, food, games and some swimming.

Kennedy's 4Th of July dress that her Meme made her.

That's pretty much it in the Taylor household these days.

I think I'm finally getting to that 2ND trimester energy burst. I'm having a little more motivation. Hopefully that means more blogging and picture taking.
