Taylor's Latest

What do you do with a baby who is learning all sorts of new things? Show her off of course. Since I already have the pictures and the video I know she won't bring shame to the Harrington name by refusing to perform.

So what can this little cutie do?...

She can stand up. That's right. No hands...

And she can do it while sucking on her pacifier (so proud)...

And then of course she's mastered the stairs. Going up anyway. Coming down on the other hand... well she's come down a few times, but her method usually results in tears and bruises...

And I know you all want a live performance of Peek-a-Boo, so here you go...
video

Ah... Standing. Climbing. Peek-a-Boo. Clapping. Waving. What mother could be more proud? :)

Love you little Taylor Rae! (oh, and for those of you wondering... I would still be proud if all she could do was lay there :) )


Oh, And as a Side Note...

The Harrington Family is moving to Saint George. Yes. Moving. Yes. To Saint George. Come August 1, 2009 We can no longer claim to be Idahoans. We will again be joining the ranks of the Utahans (actually not quite sure what they're called-but whatever it is, we'll be it). Ah, the mixed emotions....

Catch Up

Well, I thought about breaking this up into several different posts... But I'm lazy, so it's all in one.
And then I thought about writing in detail about all the events of the last little while. Like how I got spoiled on Mother's Day (yes, I know, forever ago), or how I almost missed my brother's wedding... But again, I'm lazy. So I'll just throw a bunch of pics on here and write a little blip about each.

We'll start with Mother's Day (and I did get spoiled)

Brecken kept saying all day "Mom, this is so nice of me. I'm going to..." and then whatever good deed she was bestowing. Ah, the little cutie...

My Breakfast in the making (notice, also, my Mother's Day bouquet)...
And the finished product. From the grill. Let me just say it was good. Real good :). Thanks babe!...
Then there was a Park Day somewhere in there...
The two cuties together (can I just say I love summer?!)...

And Daddy and Taylor. So sweet...
Ok, Then I headed Off to Grantsville for a week and half (Russ joined me later). Here are the happenings...
There were seven of these running around and Brecken was in love...
Memorial Day...

The four of us girls...
Brecken at Kamry's grave...
Brecken had a pine cone and a stick that she wanted to give to Kamry. Funny, sweet girl...
Later that day in the car (it's how we keep her happy)...
Then we did our traditional Out to Dinner (thanks Dad!!)...
Then there was The Wedding...
My brother Dan, and his, now, wife, Nicole (and let me just say that I just love her!)....
We saw a lot of this...

Ah, wouldn't they look good with five little ones runnin' around?...
I love this picture of Brecken chasing down her cousins...
And of course she wouldn't stop until she caught them...
But she is sweet...
I know, we take a lot of pictures of Brecken...
This is her camera pose (no joke, every time she sees a camera she does this, what to do with her?)...
And of course my good lookin' hunk gettin' the baby to sleep...

And here's Taylor scrounging under the table for dropped food... or anything else she can find...
The guys...
The guys again...
The girls...
And no, not the girls again. Just Mark and Taylor (well not just Mark ;) )...
This is my adorable niece Charity...
My sister, Destinee and her... a.... friend ;) ...
And here's the whole Harrington crew. Yes this was the best shot we got. Even with Brecken picking her nose...
And then there was the Princess Cupcake...
Brecken has been in love with Kara's Cupcake Blog since it started. In fact I'm convinced if you look at her counter half of the hits are from Brecken (maybe not quite that many) So while we were down in Utah Kara made this for her and she hasn't stopped talking about it. Yes, it's a giant cupcake...

Can you detect a little excitement here?....

But of course the best part....
Ah, it feels good to be caught up. At least until I take another picture :)
