Post Family Update
Hi all

I seem to recall promising a regular update on Taylor when she was first born …… but here we are at nearly 11 weeks old and this is first time we have done one!

Time is just flying by and Taylor is becoming quite the little social butterfly, just like her sister! Over the last few weeks we have noticed her becoming so much more aware of her surroundings and people and frequently gives us big smiles and giggles when she sees us. She happily lies on her play mat ‘talking’ to her toys and experimenting with what sounds she can make. She has also become very aware of the TV and loves the bright colours of Playhouse Disney when Caitlyn is watching it.

She reserves her best and most frequent smiles for Caitlyn and will often be looking around for her when she hears her come into the room. Caitlyn absolutely dotes on her and will have at least one cuddle a day with her. She is quite possessive of her and will ‘stand guard’ by her capsule at Kindy so that the other kids don’t touch her. Hopefully that protective nature will continue for years to come!

Sleep-wise she is going really well. We feed her around 10pm and she will generally go through to around 3am or later. This morning she surprised us by going through to 4:30am, but we won’t hold our breath for a repeat of that. She still sleeps well during the day too (not like Caitlyn who use to only take 30 minute power naps!) and has become quickly use to being pulled out of bed, put into her capsule and dragged around to various things that I need to take Caityn to.

Proving what an adaptable little girl she is, we have already been on a couple of holidays up to Picton – once as a family and the second time just me and the girls. She traveled really well and I managed to get all the way back to Christchurch without having to stop and feed her.

Caitlyn has just turned 4 and is due to start morning Kindy in July once some of the older kids move onto school. It’s amazing to think that Caitlyn herself will be starting school next year!! Her love of music and drama is continually developing as she frequently dances to her DVD’s (Mamma Mia being the top favourite at the moment!) and role-plays continuously – telling us what ‘characters’ we are to play which range from being Mummy’s & Daddy’s, Queens, Princes, hospital patients etc etc.

I have attached some photos of the girls and will hopefully manage another update before Christmas!!!
