Happy Birthday Taylor. Twenty four years ago today Taylor made her debut into this world. She was due on December 18th. Because of previous complications, the doctors had done several scans and tests and all due dates came back to December 18th. Note today's date: January 3rd. Yep, Taylor waited FOREVER to make her way into this world. That is pretty much the same personality that Taylor still has today. She takes her time about everything. She is slow and methodical. She never, and I mean NEVER gets into a hurry about anything. She wouldn't have even arrived on January 3rd if they had not induced labor!!! Taylor loves animals more than anyone I know. She has a huge compasionate heart and cannot stand to see people or animals mistreated in any way shape or form. Taylor loves the underdog. She is the personal cheerleader for anyone or thing that is thought of as second-rate or unworthy. Taylor is one of the smartest people I know. Brain-wise. Her common sense.........????............hmmmm...sometimes that leaves a little to be desired!!! Taylor loves facts. She remembers facts. She recites facts. She lives to 'out-fact' me. Taylor understands numbers. What I find frustrating, she accomplishes easily when it comes to anything to do with math. Unlike most math minds, she also is an accomplished writer. She has won several awards at state level for her writing. Taylor can do most anything she sets her mind to do. IF she sets her mind to do it. But like I said, Taylor has her own time and that is slow and easy. :)' . Taylor is the middle child of our family and every bit the middle child mold. She has answered to many names growing up from Tots, Totsy, Tater Tot, Clancy, to Taylor Clancy Car (for whatever reason she called herself this!!). Taylor is has the dark complexion of the family and beautiful coloring. She is extremely pretty. She is left-handed and I like to say this explains her 'quirks.' She is quick to point out that a large number of presidents or those that ran for president are also Southpaws. (Another one of her facts. She can quote all the above by name!) When Taylor (finally!!!) arrived that meant that our oldest, Fielding, had two little sisters and he was not yet three!! Fielding loved to call Taylor 'happy face' when she was a baby because she was always so happy. Others called her "Me Too" because she had a (BAD) habit of saying that everytime her (year) older sister Annie would say anything!! When Taylor was little she talked with what we like to say was a "Boston" accent because she could not quite pronounce her words correctly! It is hard for me to believe that my third child is now 24. Where has time gone? Happy Birthday Taylor. May you continue to flourish in this world. We love you SO.
