Hello Terrible Two's

All in one week Taya has:

- Broken our pantry door off (she brings me the brown sugar everyday... "mmm mommy, nummy")

-Dumped two bags of cereal on our family room carpet, one of which was Fruity Pebbles... could that be any harder to pick up??

-Unrolled the toilet paper from our bathroom into our bedroom (about 15 feet) TWICE

-Burned her hand on the fireplace

-Sat in our garage and played in the oil leak from my car

-Stuck a chocolate chip up her nose "MOMMY STUCK! MOMMY STUCK!"

-Eaten pretty much every marker in our hous
e... see my previous post

-Learned how to breasfeed her baby doll
"baby ian Taya's boobies" (ian=eating)

-And today found the tallest stool we own and got a hold of our Melatonin "mmm bedtime nummy Mommy" ... yeah, she was a little tired today:

"Mommy, tired. Nap"
"Let's eat some lunch first, then you can go to sleep, Taya"
"Mommy nap"
"Ok, we need to eat food really fast"
"No food. Nap"

Oh and did I mention that most of this happened today??
Apparently you're supposed to watch your kids during the day :) .

I need a vacation.

Such a Gem

You know, there's those cute little kids that have the perfect hair with the cute barrettes and the perfectly kept clothes that always just look like such sweet children?...

And then there's my sweet Taya...

Who eats markers.

And thinks it's funny.

"I swear I'll never do it again, Mom." ...

"And what's this?" You ask ...
Three bitten off marker tops.

Thanks Taya.

When It Rains, It Pours

Our family has had two days in a row of sad news, so we're off to a rough start this week. Jenna and Andrew found out today Cash has problem with his intestines, so please keep this little guy in your prayers, he's having surgery either tonight or tomorrow to correct the problem :(

This morning I was made Taya waffles and pretty much talking to myself I said, "Where's the syrup?". Taya replied, "Taya deep it all gone". ("drink" :) ) Now I know why she wakes up so early, apparently she can get to things much easier when Mommy and Daddy are still sleeping!

It's been a long time since I've updated on the kids, so here it goes...


Taya is still a character. She runs around the house dancing and shaking her bum all the time. She'll say "mommy watch" or "Dog-ger watch Taya" and shakes her little bum at him. She's been potty trained for over a month now and is doing AMAZING! She won't even pee when she sleeps too, it's great! (Except for getting woken up in the middle of the night to take her potty.) She's been saying so many new things, it's so fun to see how little minds grow. She surprises me all the time with the things that come out of her mouth... for example (I can't believe I'm writing this, but it was one of those moments you couldn't help but laugh), the other day she tooted and looked at me, laughed, then pointed her finger up and said "yisten" ... and tooted again! Are you kidding me!? Wonder who taught her that... CAM!! After church the other day a boy was walking out with us and as we were headed to our car Taya said, "bye stinky boy" :) Daddy's teach the most wonderful things don't they? haha, our poor children.


Dodger is getting so big, such a chubby little guy. He's such a happy baby, but has quite the scream when he's mad. He started smiling at six weeks and is now in the stage of wanting to laugh. He's extremely ticklish, loves watching Taya, and loves having his hair played with.

2 month appointment:
23 inches, 55%
12 lbs, 59%

Baby Cash

Jenna and Andrew had their baby on December 31st... yes, I'm a little late in posting :) He was 7 lb 4 oz and 19 inches long. Such a cutie and so tiny!

Isn't it amazing the difference in just two months!? ...

Cash & Dodger

Mom, Taya, Me, Jenna, Cash, and Jami

Congratulations Jenna & Andrew, he's a doll!
