Taya was "helping" me finish all of our stockings tonight and sneezed about 5 times in a row. She looked at me and said, "Whoa, Taya has wotsa bwess you's Mommy!". I thought it was so cute! :)

Yes, unfortunately for the poor kid, that has turned into Dodger's nickname :).

Since it's almost month past his birthday, I thought I'd do a quick post about our sweet boy! My blog has been completely neglected lately because of my other blog (click here), but my kids need the attention for minute, so here it is...

Dodger turned 1 on October 22nd... he had a great day, but had no idea it was anything special. :)

We had a ward Halloween party that night and a busy day that day, but we still managed to squeeze in presents and cupcakes- which, by the way, he was not a big fan of! (what!?!)

Hate that his name has created a theme for this, but I guess he'll have to deal with it... hope he likes baseball when he grows up (sorry Dodger!)...
(I know, cheesy, right? :) )
What kid doesn't LOVE cupcakes?! ....
Finally opened up a little...

 And there it is....

Yummy presents! ...

A Few Things About Dodge:
13 months: 
19 lbs 10 oz, 5th percentile
height 65th percentile

  • He, still, is the happiest, most smiley baby you'll ever see
  • So super cuddly, he gives me hugs every morning
  • He'll give kisses with a WIDE open mouth :)
  • When he hears music he dances by bobbing up and down and side to side!
  • Sits on his knees all the time... so cute! ...
  •    He falls asleep sitting with his head leaned against the bumper...
    •  Still a mama's boy! Have to admit, I do love it :)
    • Still fits in 3 month onesies and other 3-6 month clothes!
    • LOVES his sister
    • He waves
    • Just learned a new trick...

    **We LOVE our little boy and could not have asked for a sweeter baby! He really is such an angel and we are so blessed to have him in our family. Happy late Birthday Dodgie, we love you so much!**

    Another Taya-ism

    So I realize it's been forever since I had a real post, and I promise I'll do it soon, but I had to write this one down real fast...

    Today after church Taya used the bathroom by herself and came out...

    "Taya, did you wash your hands?"
    "No, it's fine. Taya not get my bum on my hands."

    Cam and I were both DYING laughing! So now the question is, how do you teach your 3 year old that just because they don't "get their bum on their hands" doesn't mean they don't need to wash them? :)

    I know, I know, I've been neglecting this blog lately, but I have to write down a few things real quick before I forget! I'll do a longer post later, but Taya has been hilarious lately and has said some pretty funny things. Let me just say first though, she still speaks in third person and can't say her "L" 's so things come out much funnier...

    *Last week I was trying to hurry and get the kids in the car because we were late for something -shocker- and I hurried and buckled Taya and as soon as I was done she looked at me and said, "y'all done freakin' out Mom?" WHAT?!?! Where did she get that from?? Cam!! :)

    *Taya is always curious about aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, cousins, etc. so one day she said

    "What's Taya?"
    "You're my daughter"
    "Tay's not daughter, Tay's pretty princess"

    *Today Taya got in the car and wouldn't sit in her car seat so I got mad and her response was this:

    "Don't get mad at Taya anymore Mom"
    "Well, you need to start listening to me, Taya, then I don't have to get mad"
    "Taya isten you when Tay gets bigger"

    Again, WHAT?!?! Haha, I couldn't help but laugh at that one!

    Never a dull moment with Taya, that's for sure!
