Pulling Hair, Fighting Over Toys, Cursing and Pulling Up

I'm so far behind on pictures. But I've just not had the energy to stay up and upload them BUT I've got to get a few things on here before I forget them.

LT have been pulling each other's hair A LOT lately. Taylor starts it usually but Luke pretty much takes her down trying to climb her. It's funny because they don't seem to be too upset by it...I actually think they are getting use to getting their hair pulled. They can't be doing it that hard. It's funny though...sometimes Taylor pets Luke's head. It's cute.

Fighting over toys has continued and they are getting feisty. Now that Luke can get around he can take things back. Taylor wants what ever Luke has and she takes it. She can strong arm him even though she's a lot lighter. Luke has started head butting her and pushing her away and using his elbows to block her out. (maybe he'll be a good rebounder some day) Anyhow even if Luke gives up the toy and plays with something else, Taylor will often shove the toy back at him trying to get him interested in it again. They play tug a war and pull so hard that Taylor often ends up falling back. (with the toy usually) If Luke is really into something and Taylor takes it he SCREAMS, cries and buries his head on the floor pouting. It's funny and yet I wonder how this is all going to escalate.

Cursing. Luke lately sounds like he's cursing. Nick and I looked at each other the other night and thought the same thing. He says all this gibberish and with such a tone that it sounds like he's cursing in another language. It's funny.

Luke is now trying hard to pull up on things and his little temper is showing. Since he's been crawling he now wants to do what Taylor does and he can't yet. He tries to let go of our hands when we're helping him stand and then screams when he doesn't get his way. If he wants up and you lay him down he kicks, arches his back, face gets red and he screams. Stinker. Mister laid back is not so much right now. Taylor touches the outlet cover (luckily it's child proof) and she gets in trouble and guess who touches it seconds later. Monkey see...monkey do. I've got monkeys on my hands alright. They do love their bananas!

Luke is still wheezing. Not getting worse, just not really getting remarkably better. So the doctor is continuing his breathing treatments for another 5 days.

Easter pics to come and lots of misc pics. Eventually.......

Hey Robin,
Did you ever find those bath seats? Hey, I just had to change my blog to make it unlisted because the state is finally cracking down on posting foster kids, which I guess I can understand. I would love to add you to the list of "chosen readers", that is if you want to be. In order to do that I need your email address. If you want me to add you, just email me, and I will add your name to the list.
I can't wait to see your Easter post, I am sure they both looked so cute.
