this girl is officially a teenager. watch out everyone.

some fun/funny things about taylor. when she was a baby she never cried. the only time she cried was when my mom held her. lol. oh yeah--she did cry when she got about a year old. if you didn't put her to bed on time she would stand by her crib and cry until you put her IN. i am not making this up. crazy.

she also said dog when she was one year old. that's it. i think she said it once or twice on the same day and then never again. for a year. not a single word. when she turned two she started speaking in sentences. thirteen years later she still only talks when necessary. ha ha

when she started preschool at 3 she never said a word there. she would get in the car and talk to me and she would talk at home but never at preschool. one day i went to pick her up and she was in the bathroom. a little boy stood beside me and asked me whose child was mine. i said taylor. he said he didn't know who that was. i said it's the cute little girl with short hair. she came out of the bathroom and saw me but not the boy next to me. she started talking to me and this boy's mouth dropped open. he looked up at me and said "SHE CAN TALK?" in utter astonishment. then when we walked off i heard him mumble "she's not that cute". LOL i still laugh at that.

now she's growing up and she is definitely her own person. case in point. two weekends ago we took her to her first junior high dance. when it was almost time to go dave asked taylor to go get ready. taylor replied that she was. now you have to know that taylor had slept in her clothes the night before, then gone to school in those clothes and was still wearing same clothes. so on the way to the dance i asked her if her friends were going to be there. i don't know--she said. okay. so we dropped her off by herself and picked her up by herself. she had a great time. i don't know of many girls who go to dances without a posse. but that's taylor. she doesn't care if what she does or wears or thinks is popular. she does what she wants.

some of her favorite things right now: johnny depp. hot cheetos. the color orange. electric guitars. top ramen. the beatles.

happy birthday taylor...love mom
