Beck-Beck, Bunnies and Balance Beams

Beck Beck is what Taylor calls Becky. Becky, Matt and Reed came to stay with us the other weekend and we had the best time. Taylor did so well with Reed. She let him sleep in her room and was very sweet all weekend...she even let her MeMe hold him! But she sat VERY close by. On Saturday night, Allison and April came to Rome with their hubbies and new baby Lilly. We were so excited to all be able to spend some time together!
Becky, Reed, April, Lilly, Allison, me and Taylor...Becky was my roomie at Shorter (for the few of you who may not know!) Taylor loved spending time with Baby Reed and has asked me almost once a day since, "Where'd Baby Reed go?" I have to explain that he had to go back to South Carolina with his parents 'Beck Beck and Map'.
Matt and Reed...Taylor says, "I'm trying to eat my brownie, no pictures please!"
Me and Al...
The new Mommies...

Allison and Alan...

Reed and Lilly...aka Baby Weed and Baby Yiyyee. Notice Lilly gazing up at her Daddy! So sweet!!!
Taylor making cookies with MeMe and MeMaw...who Taylor calls MaMaw but that's just fine with MeMaw, of course!
Here's my little monkey at gymnastics! She's had the best time. She's in the same class with her cousin Ellie Grace and our neighbor, Carlie. We hope to sign up soon for the summer session. She loves it!

Here are some pics from Easter sunday...hunting eggs and her Easter dress. Her dress was one that Dad's mother had started for me and Mom finished it for Taylor! So special. She gave it to me at one of my baby showers and now Taylor's old enough to wear it!! I can't believe it. We have lots of dresses that my grandmother (Mama Jean) made for me and I can't wait for Taylor to wear them. Most of them are back in style now and in pretty good shape...thanks to Mom!!

Feeding the cows with Grandpa...

Taylor with her cousin, Hope. My friend Tashia said this picture looks like it's straight from Little House on the Prairie! I guess it kind of does!

The Duke girls gave Taylor this cute, CREATIVE bow organizer. Their mom, Melanie made it!
Taylor wanted to put bows in her hair to match. Luckily, she has not wanted to do that when we are going out...just at home!
Ready for church in her cool shades! She says to me, "Mommy, it's too bright. I need my sunglasses!"Taylor says, "Cheese!" in a pretty dress that Aunt Carol gave her!
We went on a picnic recently with my friend Cindy (Sissy!) We took Taylor to Berry to feed the ducks. She loved it...and loves her Sissy!

Here's the's not gone completely!! But she has gotten better about actually smiling at the camera. Thank goodness!! We promise to update our blog very soon and not wait a whole month like this time!
