catching up is hard to do

especially when you're as far behind in the blogging world as i am. but we've had a lot going on lately that is definitely worth posting about. most importantly, the woman pictured below with the extremely swollen abdomen had a baby!
here she is all gussied up waiting for the arrival of baby boy Taylor. still swollen, i might add. but after all the drugs that modern medicine has to offer a woman in her condition, the baby made his much anticipated arrival!
Boston Callister Taylor arrived on 9/22/11 at 2:06 p.m.
7 lbs 3 0z 20.5 in. long
here he is fresh out of the womb
here should be pictures of Boston with his sisters but they're on my uncooperative phone. but we do have beautiful, professional pictures that were taken by my good friend, Carrie. she was more than patient with us as we had a fussy, hungry newborn who was done with photo taking 30 minutes into our session. luckily, she was still able to get some great pictures.

one of my very favorites

another favorite
a few weeks after this photo session, we had Boston's blessing.
we were lucky to have Zach's parents and brother join and support us. we really wish the rest of his family and my family could have joined us but we know they were thinking about us that day.
best we could do. just grateful Zoe was looking in the right direction. Boston looks a little uncomfortable though...

deep in thought or trying to hold up his heavy noggin'?
hungry baby
had to include this one for heart warming sake and to remind myself that she isn't always causing mischief
(just most of the time ;-)
