A little shout out...

I wanted to give a shout out to my next door neighbor Lisa now that I know that she sometimes visits my blog :-) Us Taylor clan seriously hit the jackpot when Lisa and family moved in last year. Not only does Lisa have kids around the same ages as mine (and boy are they chummy!) but her and her hubby Chip are awesome! Case in point - Lisa brought over a vodka/watermelon spritzer for me the other night while I was putting Chloe to bed. When I came downstairs, I had a lovely treat. Neighbors don't get much better then that, lol. The kids adore each other, especially Noah and Savannah who we joke are the lovebirds. Lisa told me that last night Noah was showing off on his scooter for Savannah, calling to her to look at his tricks. She then turned to Lisa and said, "I love him." How cute is that?! I never thought Noah would have his first girlfriend at only 3 1/2 (and with an older, more mature woman who is almost 5, at that!), hehea. So, not only do we spend a lot of time outside playing in the afternoons, but we sometimes go on playdates during the day, too. Here are some pics from our trip to the Airport Park the other day - the playground is right across the street from the airport, so planes are constantly flying right in front of you... very cool! The girls are totally the big sisters that Chloe never had - always helping her and leading her around... so sweet! Oh, and did I mention that Lisa scraps, too? She helps feeds my obsession by taking trips to our LSS with me :-)







And, finally, I have a layout to share that I did last night - finally got to scrap the photos of Noah and Chloe meeting for the first time:

Excuse the wonky 'O' in the photo - I didn't realize it was hanging weird like that until after I snapped the photo :-) Journaling reads: Just like Tony and I did with each of them, Noah and Chloe seemed to fall instantly in love with each other. Suprisingly, Noah had very little adjustment period when Chloe was born, and he's seemed intrigued and excited by her from day one. She, too, has always adored her big brother - no one can make her laugh like he can. Now, 17 months later, they have become each other's favorite playmate. It thrills me to see that they have learned at a very young age how ver special a sibling bond is. I can't wait to see their bond grown even stronger.
