Ella and Taylor update

It's been quite some time since we have posted. We had a great Memorial Day weekend and the weekend after cooking out and spending time with friends. I started back to work on Wednesday and it has been quite an adjustment. I thought that there wasn't enough hours in one day with just Ella, now it feels as though there is even less. Time flies by at work and at home and we are definitely still trying to get into a routine of some sort.

Ella's vocabulary since we brought home Taylor has increased incredibly. Her new favorite saying is "I no want to". This has actually been quite helpful as it makes it a whole lot easier to understand what she is requesting (and dealing with the aftermath when we don't give her everything she wants). She starts in the older 2, young 3 classroom in just one week. In that room they kick potty training into full gear and we will be doing the same at home.

Taylor is finally getting on a schedule and it has made my return to work a bit easier. She is officially eating every three hours and has started going to sleep right around 9 pm (instead of staying up until 11 pm). She sleeps in the bassinet next to our bed and wakes to eat around 1:30 am and then again at 6 am. She coos and smiles a lot and her face lights up when she sees her mama and papa.

Here are a few videos...

Looks like you've got yourself a little drummer-girl! ;) Good job Ella! And of course, Taylor is absolutely adorable, as always, just now with cute noises too! :)
