Childhood Unplugged • August 2017

Happy 1st Birthday to my sweet baby girl Taylor Ash! She is the definition of Childhood Unplugged, untainted by electronics and thrilled to explore the simplest of things! I learn from her everyday as I am reminded to stop, take a deep breath and relish in the magic of the mundane. She has changed our family make up for the better and has brought so much joy to us all

At 12 months you crawl kind of like an ape which makes us all laugh. Never on all fours like a normal crawl, you scoot with one hand and have gotten pretty good at moving fast. You are no where near walking and as the third child I am 100 percent ok with that. You say “Lyla” most often, “dada” next. You have started to say “mama” but reserve it for when I really need to kiss and smoosh you all over. You have what we call an “evil” laugh that comes out when you play chase with Ava and your sisters make you SO happy. When daddy walks in the room, the whole world stops. You are a daddy’s girl through and through. You have him wrapped around your finger and can do no wrong in his eyes… trust me 🙂

We love you so very much!!! You have the blondest hair and SO much of it in comparison to your sisters at this age. You eat EVERYTHING and do sign language for “more” and “all done”.

You love books and playing with the air vents most… the brown bar that closes the sliding doors as well. You carry it around with you and its about 4 feet long so it looks pretty funny!

You had the cutest smash cake party on your birthday with a cake made by a friend and surrounded by your family. We put you in the Cusak’s ice bucket for a bath after which you liked the most! We danced to your favorite song on the planet, “strut” by the cheetah girls. HA!

You are the bestest and the mostest Taylor! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
