So the last time we posted anything Lyndee and I were newlyweds. Then in December we found out that Lyndee was pregnant. Oopsie. We weren't really ready for this and life as we new it was O.V.E.R!! Almost 37 weeks later we were blessed with a happy, healthy little boy we named Aiden James Taylor. He weighed 7 lbs 13 oz and was 21.5 inches long with very little hair and a curious attitude. He was blessed the sunday after General Conference in October. Today, he is 5 months old and weighs just over 19 lbs. He is always happy and is becoming more curious about his surroundings each day. He's mastered the rolling over but thats about it.
During the time Lyndee was pregnant she maintained great grades while in nursing school despite having a rough go of it. She was incredible to be able to do what she did during that time. After Aiden was born she took time off work but the schedule she maintained again was brutal with pumping and school. But as usual she did it well. She will start her final semester in nursing school in January.....YEAH. I am so lucky to have her in my life as my wife and best friend.
She really loves our little boy and is an incredible mommy. I love watching her with him and it makes my day to see the love she has for him in how she talks to and cares for him.
Then there's our girl, Khalee. She has been a real trooper through this entire process. Its been a real balancing act and unfortuneately Khalee has had to go without her daily walks, more so when its cold. We did good when it was warmer. We try to make sure she gets her one on one as much as possible. She knows who Aiden is when you ask her to find him. She gets really excited when he wakes up and comes down stairs in the morning. She has to smell him and lick his face.
All in all we had a really good year. We are all healthy and thats all I really hope for each day, because with that you have a chance to fulfill your dreams. Lyndee and I know we have so much to learn about each other, ourselves, and life. We are way excited to see what 2010 brings and we hope to be able to share many more experiences with family and friends.
Also, if you look at the pics on a past posting you'll see that Dirk and I went to RSL's first ever palyoff soccer game, in which they won, but lost the next one and were eliminated. Well whoopy freakin doo. This year they one two games against last years MLS cup winners and went to the finals to beat the best team in the MLS this year to win it all. YEEHAW. GO RSL. That brought Utah its first professional title since the Utah Jazz when they belonged to the ABA years ago. Does that really even count? Soccer Rules!!
