Grandma and Grandpa Aaron had a baby-size sombrero that we thought would work perfectly for commemorating Cinco de Mayo. This picture is attempt-number two, as she screamed the first time Kristin tried to take a picture of her with the sombrero.

Taylor also had her two week appointment today, and would you believe it?! She weighed in at 7 lbs. 10 oz! If you recall, she was born at 6 lbs. 8 oz. so she did way more than maintain her birth weight! We were both so happy with her progress, and assuming that the blood tests come back fine, we have a healthy baby and couldn't ask for anything more.

And in celebration of Cinco de Mayo, here are some more pictures of Taylor!

Taylor makes so many funny faces. This one is the stink eye.

Pictures of Taylor

She has such a strong grip! She was really holding the balloon by herself! And after we took the picture, it was hard to get the balloon out of her hand!

I can't believe that Taylor will be two weeks old tomorrow! It's almost the same feeling that Kristin and I had two weeks after we were married. We commented that it felt like we had always been married, but at the same time, like it had just happened. Taylor's birth is still so fresh in my mind, but at the same time, she feels so familiar to us that it's hard to think of life without her.

She is definitely showing us her big personality. For a 13 day old, she is very strong and independent. She has a strong neck and grip and has even held her own bottle already! She is a little impatient, but for all those impatient moments, she is calm and very alert. We absolutely love having her in our home.

Next week, I hope to get up a photo blog about her, so you can see just how amazingly precious she is.
