Here are some pics from our journey through the horticulture gardens with the Supercinski's last week. If you've never been there it's in full bloom right now and would make an enjoyable picnic spot for sure.
Since Taylor's 11 month is in a few days, I'll go ahead and update you on her.
After taking her first few steps (at least 10 at some points), she is considerably disinterested in walking these days. She finds it quicker to just crawl instead. I am totally fine with this. With our active little girl I can only imagine how "on my toes" I am going to have to be when she actually starts walking.
As for words, the main word in her vocabulary is still "dada". And she definitely knows who that is. She follows him around everywhere he goes. Literally. He is the world to her. It is the most precious thing I've ever seen. A couple of months ago Allen longed for this because she could never be anywhere without me and now it's happened! I am so glad she loves her daddy the way she does. And watching them together is pure joy!
She just got in another tooth. That makes six. 3 on top and 3 on bottom. She's lopsided toward her left.
Today I noticed that her hair in the back was kind of flowy and kind of curled up in the back and it made me realize that she's such a little person. She's growing up so fast! She doesn't have little baby hair anymore. It's big girl hair!
Can I just tell you how well behaved our daughter is? And I'm not praising us, it's definitely been the Lord's doing and He gets the praise. We started spanking her hand at around 6 or 7 months for discipline and were discouraged at first. But NOW, lo and behold, she responds so well to "no" and is always looking to us for approval before she grabs something she's not sure about. Can I tell you how encouraged I am by this? Or did I just do that??? Our goal is not that she be well behaved but that she understand the sin in her own heart and desire to let us shepherd her heart as the Lord has given us the authority to. Thanks for prayers about that...there have been many- even during pregnancy all the way until now. We appreciate them so much. We are, of course, praying for the day she will come to a knowledge of Jesus Christ and trust Him for the first time, understanding that all we do is to guide her toward Him.
