Catching up with the Taylors

I have yet again fallen behind on the blog, surprise surprise. The reason I initially created this blog was to have a virtual record of our family as Sean and I entered into the world of parenthood. As I soon found out, working full time and maintaining a life outside of work is a challenge and every second is precious. So of course blogging has been on the back burner for quite a while. A year actually- ouch! Thankfully I've kept notes on BG over the past year and I will pull them together in her own post coming up.

In the meantime, here is a quick little run down of what we've been up to since this time last year!

   Bennett Grace started school in August. She loves it!

Mommy got new glasses :)

We got new iPhones and Bennett Grace enjoyed trying out the Beats.

In the fall, my sister found out she was having a girl! 

There were lots of holidays
