Happy 25th!!

It's official, I'm old... or something like that. Today was my birthday. Started out the celebration at the doctor's office with a delicious glucose drink and a needle stuck in my arm. Happy Birthday eh? :) Went to lunch with friends (thank you!!), Mickell made delicious cupcakes, got a nap, went to the zoo and finished with a movie. Thanks everyone for a great birthday! ... Including Taya, who slept until 7:00 AND had a 2 1/2 hour nap today, which is pretty rare these days! I seriously never thought I'd see the day where I'd actually say I got to "sleep in" until 7:00. Ridiculous. Anyway, thanks for all of your phone calls and beautiful songs that were sung on my voicemail. :)

And since a post really isn't that great of a post unless there's pictures (unless it's Jami's Bachelor Blog which is a hilarious must read :) ) ...

This is me and Taya at the zoo today with the monkeys in the background...


This is Taya's best buddie, Cammie. She LOVES her!! Taya follows her around and gives her loves all the time! This is from last week at the zoo...


Taya watching Cammie do her elephant impression...


For some reason Taya has been obsessed with camels lately. Kind of random! She always looks at her animal book and reaches out to hold the camels, but gets so frustrated that she can't. Every time I video chat with anyone she always see's the skype logo (which has a camel in it) and says "ooohhh wuuusss aaaattt?" ...

I love taking Taya to the zoo, she LOVES the animals. The whole ride there she makes elephant noises and says "rhino", I think mostly because that's the only animal that's pretty easy to say :)

Happy Birthday! I seriously can't believe how big Taya is getting. She's huge! And speaking of huge, get a belly shot on here! Haha.

I'd say your best birthday present was Taya sleeping in and napping. That's pretty huge. Cami looks like she loves Taya too!
