We were driving to Walmart to pick up some things for Ellie's friend birthday party tomorrow, and I got a call from Taylor, who is going to babysit the girls this evening. We had a brief conversation and I hung up.
Ellie got so excited and said, "Was that my Tayler?"
I replied, "No, that was the other Taylor."
Ellie burst into tears and said, "But I want to talk to my Tayler! My birth mom Tayler. Not the other Taylor!"

Later, after I was done driving and we were back home, I had to text Tayler and tell her. She replied, "That's so sweet! Give her a big hug and kiss for me!"
And Ellie grabbed my phone and read the text. The only word she struggled with was give.
So of course I had to tell Tayler that, and she said, "Ellie! Your getting so big! And so smart! Your just growing up so fast! I love you sweetheart!!"
I am so grateful for good babysitters.
And especially for amazing birth moms. And open adoption. I cannot imagine our life without Tayler in it!
