2 1/2 Month Update

Here's a quick update on what's been going on in the Davenport household... Taylor started sleeping through the night a couple weeks ago (the day of her 2 month check-up), so we're all very happy around here! The girl likes her sleep (like her mother) and usually sleeps from 10ish-8. I feel like a new person getting a full nights rest! Here's Taylor right before her first set of shots... sad.

We got a zoo membership last week and have already been twice. The Memphis zoo is actually really nice and the weather has been beautiful. We first went with Lauren and Jake, Jenny and Charlie, Katie and Sam, and Becca and Hunter. Poor Taylor is going to get used to being around all boys!

My mom (aka Marms) came in town this weekend and we went again on Sunday. We saw a baby giraffe that was only 48 hours old.

We went to church for the first time as a full family last weekend. Taylor went to the nursery and did just fine. Please notice her adorable dress that Callen's mom made! Afterward, Taylor got to see her friend across the street, Cate, for a very brief play date.

Taylor is a lot of fun to be around now... she smiles all the time! And today, she really started to reach out and grab toys...

They're singing...Go Cubs Go...

Go Cubs Go...Hey Chicago, what do you say? Cubs are gonna win today.

So maybe they didn't win last night, but tonight is going to be different. We had baseball night last night and watched the game while eating baseball park food... hot dogs, cheese dip, etc. It was a lot of fun, despite the outcome of the game.

Many of you may not know this about me, but I have been a Cubs fan since I was little. I would intensely watch the games and listen to Harry Caray and Steve Stone. I could recite the line-up forwards and backwards, and I was convinced that I would marry Mark Grace one day, even though Damon Berryhill was pretty handsome as well. Tough choice...
But Ryne Sandberg was always my favorite and held a special place in my heart. He got an entire page devoted to him in my baseball card binder. I have been to Wrigley twice... the first time when I was little and Harry Caray still sung the seventh inning stretch. Then Brett and I got to go in 2004.

So here's the Cubs schedule for the rest of the games... Zambrano is pitching tonight so it should be a good one!!
