Happy Cinco de Mayo! (Taylor's 2 Week Appointment)

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.

ok that sombrero is absolutely perfect! It's good to start a healthy awareness of cultural diversity at a young age. This sombrero on your 2 week old daughter gives me a very compelling reason to nominate you for "new parents of the year"! Oh, and WAY TO GROW Taylor!!! I have no doubt that you will excel in many things in life...not just in gaining weight. She is a stunning baby, you two. I am glad you are obviously enjoying EVERY minute. That is as it should be :). Hope to see you guys soon....and by that I mostly mean the baby. No hard feelings ok? Brian and I are in the same boat, we have been second fiddle to our beautiful children for 5 years now....and we couldn't be happier about it, I am sure you feel the same about your beautiful "senorita" :)
