It's A Surprise!!!!

That's what I thought when I found out I was pregnant with my 3rd and last child, Victoria Leigh Taylor. I had thought I was done having babies. April was 12 and Ashley was 10. Well that's not what our Heavenly Father had in mind. I think he had in mind that I needed a little action in my life!! Oh Tori was probably the best baby overall as far as being easy. She slept really good. Loved her crib and then hated her toddler bed. At toddler age the little tantrums started coming on!! She was not only spoiled by her daddy but her 2 older sisters too!!! I wouldn't have dared spoiled a child!!!Anyway, Tori (as a lot of my family calls her) is 10 years old now and my most challenging daughter. I love her to death. She and I butt heads everyday of our life. I mean our personality's just don't jive. But one things for sure she is also the one that is keeping me on my toes. But I know one thing I don't know what I would do without her.
Her passion in life is babies, small children and making me crazy!! (Just kidding) Anyway, when she was about 2 santa brought her her first doll. This doll was kinda real like and she immediately fell in love with it. From then on she would only play with life like dolls. So you can imagine the money santa had to spend on dolls. She would get a new one each Christmas from santa. I loved that about her because neither one of my older daughters would play with dolls. Tori would go all out. I mean she had the decked out strollers, baby beds, clothes (not doll clothes either, they had to be real baby clothes from the baby dept.) bottles and all other baby "stuff". Other than dolls she really wasn't interested in much else. Her attention span wouldn't go past a 30 minute movie.

She loves to help her oldest sister babysit. Anything that has to do with "real" babies she is ready and johnny on the spot.

I can't wait to see what God has planned for her and what kind of young lady she will be one day. So you can imagine that she is just as excited as I am about her new nephew coming in July. I told her the other day that she was gonna have to be my little helper. She lit up like a Christmas tree.
Tori, mama loves you. Don't ever forget that. You are a special little lady and I am so very proud of you.


  1. So glad to finally meet your baby. :-)

  2. What a girl! My daughter L-O-V-E-S baby dolls. I'm really looking forward to seeing who she'll be; what God has in store for her.

    Thank You for always having a perfect word of prayer and encouragement for me as I struggle to find my footing. I feel so blessed the Lord has made this connection.

    Blessings, Carolynn
