Tater is Three!
Because that's how my two year old says it. And Taylor [Tater] happens to be his very best friend.
These two have been buddies their whole lives and it's so exciting watching them grow. But before we get into Miss Taylor's upcoming birthday ((tear)), here's a little flashback of our two sweeties from the past couple of years.
I hope they always love each other like they do now.
[Their very first kiss]
[A little summer time fun]
[Their first drive together]
Just looking back through these images gets me teary eyed. I'm so glad we have these moments documented of our two littles growing up together. And boy are they growing up fast! This Saturday ((April 25th)) Taylor will celebrate her THIRD birthday! Ironically enough, Lucas will celebrate his half birthday [2 1/2].
Yes, each year when one celebrates a birthday--the other is celebrating a half birthday. So either way-- our kids get to party and celebrate together!!
This year- Taylor got to choose her theme. Mama was pulling for Frozen but little miss put her foot down and got The Little Mermaid instead. You know what that means... photo shoot at the beach!
What little girl doesn't love to play dress-up? Well, Taylor loves it too. So she brought her Little Mermaid princess dress along for the ride and proceeded to strut her stuff on the beach. This next one was just my test shot before we got going, but both Melinda and I thought it was adorable. She's such a ham.
[Her favorite pose]
Here are some of my favorites of Tater on the beach ((and in the water)), working that princess dress. Meanwhile, Lucas ran around like a crazy man with his Granny chasing after him! Needless to say, between Lucas and Taylor, the beach goers were entertained.
[Simple + Sweet]
[Sandy toes...what's not to love?]
[It's all about that crown]
[The water was chilly, but she'll always smile for her Mama]
[A little playtime in the sand]
What can I say about Taylor? Aside from the fact that she's obviously adorable?!? I might as well be wearing mommy goggles when I look at this girl, but I think anyone who knows her would agree...
>she's smart [like reeeeaaallllyyyy smart...she constantly amazes me]
>she's kind [most toddlers don't do sharing, and they all have their moments...but Tater always shares with her Lukie Pookie]
>she's faithful [yes, at 3 years old she will proudly tell you that she is a Christian... ask her babysitter Juju]
>she's silly [this kid can bust a move in the car and get more giggles than a stand up comedian]
>she's compassionate [she cares about her friends, a little bump or fall and she's right there making sure everyone is ok]
The list goes on and on... I could sit here and gush all day about this beauty because she has stolen a little piece of my heart. <3 So before I start tearing up again... here's a few more of my faves from our shoot ((after a quick wardrobe change)).
Knowing how amazing Taylor is at the tender age of three makes me melt at the thought of watching her grow. This kid is going to move mountains. But for now, let's let her be little. After all, it's time to celebrate.
Happy Birthday Tater! Mickey loves you VERY VERY MUCH!!
