Taylor: Luke did you hear what Mommy said? She said don't get that out, okay? Luke, do you hear me? Did you hear what Mommy said? LUKE! {Luke not looking at her but smiling}

Taylor: Mommy.....Luke's not listening.

Potty time:
Taylor: I pooped Mommy! {I make my way into the bathroom} NO Mommy, I want Luke to see my big stinky poopy first. Go Mommy, Luke Look! Look at my big stinky poopy.

Taylor: We're going to Pappy's house.
Luke:We're going to Grandma's house.
Taylor: Noooo we're going to Grandma's house.
Taylor: GRANDMA'S HOUSE!!!!!
Luke: PAPPY'S HOUSE!!!!!
Us: They are the same place!!!!

Miss Taylor before church.

"Mommy, do you have the diaper bag? OK, good. Do you have your purse? OK, good. Do you have your keys? OK, good. We're ready to go!"

{cracks me up, she knows how I forget things}

Monday, December 20, 2010


I always let the kids pick out their socks in the morning. Some mornings Luke lets Taylor pick his out for him. Once Taylor even let Luke pick hers out AND she stuck with what he picked which surprised me. Yesterday morning Taylor picked out a pair that didn't so much match in my opinion and since we were going to church I tried to sway her decision, saying that they didn't match as well as another pair. She looked at me with the pair she chose in her hand and said, "Trust me Mommy, these match." Seriously at 2?

Friday, December 17, 2010


I wake up to an ear piercing scream and crying. I go into their room thinking there's an injury of some sort.
Taylor: Luke's singing his ABC's, make him stop it!
{I look at Luke, who has the biggest grin on his face, I mean he's irritated his sister to the point of screaming and tears AND he's not going to get in trouble for singing his ABC's...}
Luke: I wanna go Christmas shopping! lol

John 3:16

Luke and Taylor memorized their first bible verse today. John 3:16. Thought I'd try it and didn't expect them to get it so quickly. :) They had quite the prayer session tonight too..Life Group..consider yourself very prayed for. :) Taylor amazes me when she brings up names of people she barely knows and it's not like she sees them the day she prays for them. These kids encourage my faith for sure

Saturday, December 11, 2010


Woke up to Luke and Taylor singing (YELLING) Old McDonald had a farm..E I E I OOOOOOOOO. Arguing over which animal of course.

At one point Taylor said MOO for the goat and Luke stopped and said....
Taylor WHAT ARE YOU DOING? A goat does not go moo SILLY GOOSE..
Taylor says...OH I sorry, I sorry....a goat goes BAAA...I'm a silly goose, aren't I Luke?


Luke and Taylor went on and on praying for people and thanking God tonight. Always amazes me. Was cute too...Luke said he was thankful for Taylor Lee Bair and she got the biggest smile ever on her face. :)

Tuesday, November 16, 2010


Luke and I were throwing football this morning and he stops and looks at me dead serious and says, "Mommy, I need a football helmet." :)

Taylor was playing with her two horses and this is what I hear...
"Horsies! You need to settle down and be nice to each other! That was NOT nice. Hug and kiss and be nice. Awww...horsies.......that's sooooo cute. Thank you for being nice."

Saturday, November 13, 2010


Taylor: Luke, Who made the moon and stars?

Luke: Jesus and God did! Taylor: No, Mary did!
(She has found saying this really irritates Luke)

Luke: No! Mary had a little lamb sissy. Jesus and God made the moon!


Taylor: Luke, what starts with the letter M?
Luke: M is for Mommy and Moon!
Taylor: That's right Luke, good job!
Luke: Thanks!
Taylor: Luke, what starts with the letter D?
Luke: D is for Daddy and Dog!
Taylor: That's right Luke, good job!


Taylor: (reading the bible) Mommy, Look! Eve is being nice and sharing an apple with Adam! Eve's nice. :)

(Taylor's been reading the bible a lot and it's adorable...she knows characters and pretends to read and says, Jesus is Born!)


Me: Luke, what's your puppies name? (his stuffed dog)
Luke: His name is bacon!
Me: Bacon?
Luke: Nooooo, cheeseburger. (big cheese)
I want a cheese burger for lunch Mommy!


Taylor: (noticing Daddy's hands when he got home from work) EWW Daddy, GROSS! That's DISGUSTING!!! (sour look on her face)...she kept saying it's disgusting. lol Then Luke said he was "Stinky". lol

Friday, November 12, 2010


Last night, putting kids to bed. Told them each I love them and they both said it back to me and then as I'm walking out Luke says, "I love you Tay-yer Yee Bair!" I asked Taylor if she was going to tell Luke she loved him and she said, "No". :(

Then today at nap after our I love you's Taylor said, "I love you Luke Mikey Bair". and Luke grinned a HUGE smile and said, "I love you Sissy Tay-yer Yee Bair!"

Taylor told Luke he was handsome today and she told me I was pretty. :)

Thursday, November 4, 2010


When I put the kids in their cribs for nap before I left..Taylor said: Mommy...scoot my crib over to Luke's, please. (ummmmm.........NO.) :)

Friday, October 29, 2010


{This morning in their cribs}
Luke: {Singing} Itsy Bitsy Spider went up the spout......
Luke: SISSY, you sing it!!
Taylor: NO, NO, NO, I'm sleeping.
Luke: How about...{singing} Twinkle, twinkle little star....

Taylor: I'm not getting you, I'm sleeping!
Luke: You're NOT SLEEPING, you're awake.
Taylor: Stop SCREAMING!
{Singing together} ABCDEFG.......

Wednesday, October 27, 2010


I told Taylor my belly hurt this morning and she said...I pray for it....Help Mommy's belly feel JESUS name we pray...AMEN. :)

Taylor's been saying..."LUKE MIKEY BAIR!" and calling him a "Silly Goose".

When we were in the mountains...Taylor at one point packed her back pack, went to the door and said OPEN IT, I'm going to church to see baby Jacob!

Friday, October 15, 2010


Woke up to this:
Taylor: LUKE NO! Put your diaper're gonna pee the bed.
Luke: I'm naked! {jumping on the bed like a maniac}

Last night at dinner:
Nick: Who's birthday is coming up?
Taylor: It's MY birthday. I get presents.
Nick: It's almost Mommy's Birthday.

Last night at Life Group...when we put the kids to bed. Taylor insisted on praying for everyone she knew the names of who were at Life Group including some that weren't there. :)

Wednesday, October 13, 2010


Taylor:{rolling around her back pack}

Ut! My phones calling me!

{pulls calculator out of her back pack, looks at the screen}

Oh...It's DADDY!

{puts it up to her ear}

Hi, Daddy...I'm good. I want chicken nuggets, french fries, dip, ketchup, and cheeseburger, ok??? Bye Daddy!

{puts phone back in back pack}

My phones ringing AGAIN! {gets it out and starts "texting" on the keys}

Today, Ali and Morgan were calling her all day. :)


Potty time:

Luke was done and I went outside quick to ask Nick if Taylor had gone already. I come back in and Taylor had pooped, they had gotten the toddler wipes out and they both had a spec of poop on their hands.

I asked what they were doing...and Luke said, "I help Sissy wipe".

Can't leave those two for a second.

Friday, October 8, 2010


Luke and Taylor have been calling each other "Honey" all day. Excuse me, Honey. That goes there honey. Hey Honey, here you go. Honey don't push me. Thank you honey, that was nice. lol

Tuesday, October 5, 2010


Taylor: Mommy, I fell on my bunny. :( Pray for the Bunny Mommy!
{We prayed for healing for Bunny}
Taylor: Thank you Mommy, Bunny is ALL BETTER!

{I had stood up after reading my bible}
Taylor: YAY! {clapping} Mommy's done VOTIONS! (devotions) :)

{Heard Luke running into the dining room}
Luke: {crying} MOMMY! Pants fell down.
{I walk in and his pants had fallen down around his ankles}

Taylor kept singing something this morning and I wasn't sure what. Then she said, It's Esther song Mommy. She was singing a song from the Veggie tale movie. It's been a while since we watched it so I didn't put two and two together. She kept singing...TELL ME WHYYYYYYY.....don't understand. :)

Mordecai: You wanted to know why you became queen.
I told you God must have a reason.
Perhaps he put you here, for such a time as this.
Perhaps This is the reason.

Ester{singing}: Tell me why, I don't understand.
Tell me why, or show me your hand.
Tell me why because I can't see my way through ~
What now...should ~

The battle is not ours
We look to God above~
For he will guide us safely through
And guard us with his love
I will not be afraid
I will not run and hide~
For there is noting I can't face
When God is at my side
No, there is nothing I can't face
When God is at my side
The battle is not ours
We look to God above
For he will guide us safely through
And guard us with his love ~

Potty Time

{Luke pooped}
Luke: Look Mommy! It's a Mommy poopy and a baby poopy! Wow.
Taylor: It's a little poopy and a BIG poopy! Luke went poopy 2 times! Oh my Goodness!
Luke: Big stinky poopy and little stinky poopy. Wow.

{Taylor looking at bug book}
Taylor: I scared myself Mommy!
Me: What happened.
Taylor: The Bee is GROSS. I scared me! :)

{Taylor handing Luke a book}
Taylor: Luke, can you find the Aye aye?
Luke: I find the Aye aye. ummm....that's not an aye aye...that's not an aye aye....UT! I found AYE aye! Tay-Yer....see it?
Taylor: Good job Luke! Look Mommy...Luke found an Aye aye.

{Luke is now saying Tay-Yer more than Tee-ya.}

Me: {to Taylor} What's your name? Sissy Michael Bair! lol

Taylor: Mom, can I have a kiss? {kiss her cheek} Aww, Mommy...that was a nice kiss, thank you. :)

Me: Ya know, soon you guys will sleep in new big beds and not cribs anymore.
Taylor: {disgusted look on her face} I don't like new beds mommy. I like my crib.
Luke: I don't like new beds either.
Me: We don't even have new beds...but you're getting to be sooo big that you'll get big beds soon.
Taylor: I'm a little girl mommy.

Some of my favorite things about being a mom right now:

Cuddling with them right after they get a bath. :)
Watching them tell each other, Thank you, Please, Excuse me, I'm sorry, hugging and kissing, etc without being asked.
The unexpected hugs, kisses and I love you Mommy's.
Listening to them sing and talk when they wake up. Especially cute when they wake singing Jesus Loves me, Glory to God and Our God is Greater. :)

Taylor- How she wants big kisses, big squeezes, little kisses, little hugs, hands and feet kissed, back rubbed before bed.{she has many stalling methods} How she cuddles with her bunny and kitty at night. Love her raspy quiet voice. Love when she puts her hand over her mouth and laughs uncontrollably.

Luke- When he asks for a hug and a tis. lol Love how the boy says TOE-MAE-TOE (tomato). and titty tat (kitty cat). Love his gremblin giggle. Love how excited he gets to see a back hoe digging up the dirt. :) Love how every time he sees a star he breaks out singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. :) Love watching him with any ball, soccer, basketball and football. {it's def made me super quick with my hands}

I could go on forever. Love my babies who are getting way too big too fast.

Friday, September 24, 2010


Taylor: Mommy, Luke got a haircut. {mind you he got one about a month ago}
Taylor: Luke's Handsome! His haircut is NICE.
Taylor: Luke got a Lollipop.
Taylor: I got a Lollipop TOO!
Taylor: Mommy, I wanna haircut. {She hasn't yet had a haircut}
Luke: NO, LUKE'S haircut! Sissy no haircut.
Taylor: Yes Luke, I get a haircut too!
Luke: NO NO SISSY. Luke's Haircut. Right Mommy?

{Went to the grocery store with just Taylor and a lady commented on how long and pretty Taylor's hair was}

{On the way home in the car}

Taylor: {Looking in the mirror on the headrest} My hair's LONG. My hair's PRETTY! My hair's SOFT. {shaking her head back and forth} My hair's CRAZY! :)

Taylor: {naming off each piece of fruit Luke eats} Ut! A strawberry! Ut! A grape! Ut KIWIIIIII, there it KIWI in there! MOMMY I'M DONE NOW!!!!

Me: No you're not. Eat your sandwich.

Taylor: Ut! An apple! {offering her sandwich to Luke} Honey, you wanna bite?

Me: Taylor, YOU eat it.

Luke: Honey, wanna strawberry? {offering to Taylor}

Me: Luke, no, she has to eat her sandwich.

Luke: Eat your butter and jelly!

{Taylor still eating, Luke's on potty and poops}

Luke: {running out of the bathroom} Tee-ya..come see my BIG stinky poopie!

Me: Luke she's still eating.{He was upset that Taylor didn't get to see his poopie before he flushed it, I wonder at what age that will stop?} lol


{Luke woke up and pooped in his diaper before I got to him}

Luke: I have a big poopie.

{changing Luke}
Taylor {watching} Luke had a little poopie.

Luke: No, It's a big poopie, right Mommy?

Taylor: No, It's a little poopie, right Mommy?

Me: It's a medium poopie. Not big, not little, medium.

Taylor: No, Mommy, It's little.

Taylor: It's little Luke.

Luke: {crying}

{getting them dressed}

Monday, September 20, 2010


{Taylor drawing on her Aqua Pro}
(completely random and out of the blue)
Me: aww...I love Jesus too.
(now she keeps saying it) adorable.

Sunday, September 19, 2010


{in car}
Taylor: mmmmmmmmmMMMmmmm, ice cream.
Me: Ice cream? Are you eating ice cream?
Taylor: yeah...MMM ice cream.
Luke: You don't have ice cream sissy. giggling.
Taylor: yes......mmmm ice cream
{repeat over and over with giggling}

Friday, September 17, 2010


{after nap, walk upstairs to find Taylor with two handfuls of Luke's nerf football ripped to tiny pieces and covering her criba and floor}
Luke: MOMMY........{pointing} Sissy.......NO NO RIP IT! MY FOOTBALL!!!!!
Taylor: {smirk}

Wondering if he'll learn not to throw his balls into her crib?


{Luke helping himself to Taylor's ketchup}
Taylor: No Luke. Luke look at me! Stop dipping my ketchup. {Luke continues}
{repeat over and over until Mommy goes insane :)}

Luke: Look! It's a big bus!
Taylor: Honey, it's a little bus.
Luke: NO, it's a BIG bus!!!
Taylor: Honey, no it's a little bus.
{it was a little bus}

{Luke kicking Taylor under the table}
Taylor: Stop it Luke, get off...keep your feet to yourself.
{Luke seriously can NOT keep from touching and pestering Taylor 24/7}

Luke has been pretending to be a hairdresser and cutting and styling Taylor's hair. She puts up with it until he starts yanking it hard.

Thursday, September 16, 2010


Taylor: Luke No. Do you hear me? Luke, look at me. I'm gonna smack your heiney.
(wonder where she's heard all that)

Monday, September 13, 2010


{Nick was playing with the kids while I was cleaning up from dinner and I hear this}
Taylor: Ewww....Stinky! Daddy's Heiney is stinky! {repeated several times as Nick and I are dying, apparently Nick passed gas}
Taylor: {bending over and patting Nick's butt to see if he pooped}
Taylor: WOOOO WEEEEEE stinky! {disgusted look on her face}

Crazy how much these kids are learning and picking up. They are identifying letters really well and they match them up with pictures of the objects that start with the letters. They are learning more songs too.

This is a new one they sing.

They get so excited to hear it on the radio. :) So cute.

Luke is ridiculously accurate with throwing the football and kicking the soccer ball. It's nuts. I've gotta get it on video before he's any older. He loves anything with a ball.

Thursday, September 9, 2010


{while eating lunch}
Taylor: {handing me a grape} Mommy eat it.
Me: I'm full honey, you eat it.
Taylor: {scowling} Mommy DON'T pee on the chair!
Me: {laugh} I'm not peeing on the chair.
Taylor: Mommy, you're silly. Mommy peeing on the chair is funny.

(apparently since she used to say she was "full" when she had to pee that meant I was gonna pee the chair) lol

{still eating lunch}
Taylor: Mommy, I like Good Morning.
Me: You do?
Taylor: Yeah, I like Good Morning but I don't like Nigh Night.
Luke: I like Nigh Night. I like bedtime.
Taylor: I don't. I don't like Nigh Night. I like Good Morning.

(Funny since Luke is the maniac up the the morning screaming at Taylor to WAKE UP SISSY! Taylor is usually not ready to wake up so soon.)

{potty time}
Taylor: Oh it's just a little poopy. Maybe next time.
Luke: It's okay teeya. Good try.

{I was washing the floor on my hands and knees with a sponge and Taylor was grabbing and pushing my arm}
Me: What are you doing?
Taylor: I'm helping Mommy clean! :)

Wednesday, September 8, 2010


{Luke was standing behind Taylor with a train set pole light in each hand, putting them through her hair and Taylor was standing there, letting him}
Me: What are you guys doing?
Luke: I'm giving tee-ya a hair cut. (obviously lol)
Taylor: {big cheese, until they got caught in her hair}
(Luke has been seriously obsessed with hair for as long as I can remember)

{Luke playing with train set and it fell apart}
Luke: {crying and frustrated}
Taylor: It's okay Luke. Calm down. It's okay.

Both Luke and Taylor have been saying "Hey Guys....." to get my and the others attention. Didn't realize I said that so much until today.


{In the car}
Taylor: Mommy I have a big boo boo.
Me: Is it gonna be okay?
Taylor: I dunno, it's really bad.
Me: It'll be okay.
Taylor: No really hurts, it's really bad.

{potty time}
Taylor {looking}: Oh my goodness Luke.

{trying on new shirt}
Luke: Wow Mommy....I like it! It's nice.

Taylor: MY backhoe.
Luke: {screaming} NO MYYYYYYYY BACKHOE.

Taylor: TREES.....MY TREES!
{screaming back and forth}

{on and on with everything they saw}

Taylor: Mommy I want BBQ for dinner.

Friday, September 3, 2010


{This morning}

Luke: SISSSSSSSSSSSAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYY, WAKE UP!!!!!!!!! Sissy....sissssssaaaaay........WAKE UP!
Taylor: Luke, NO......I'm SLEEPING!
Taylor: Luke STOP IT, I'm sleeping.

{quiet for a few secs}

The New Haircut

He's so proud of how good he was with getting his haircut. He was happy to pose and cheese for me. Seriously....I know he's mine but this smile is contagious. :)

Mommy's Shoes

These are the shoes that I got at the beach that Miss Taylor does NOT like. Luke however is quite fond of them. :)


Taylor's fav song right now. video here. She LOVES it. She bobs her head in the car and says...MOMMY I like this song and talks about how soft her hair is when she's flipping it every where. lol

Potty talk today.
{Luke poops a little bit, stands up and looks}
Luke: {upset} I wanna BIG poopy. {sits back down}
Taylor: AWW MAN! try again Luke.
Luke: Sissy stop it.
{Later after Luke goes more}
Luke: MOMMY look...I big poopied!
Taylor: {Inspecting it} OH MY GOODNESS....GOOD BOY LUKE!

{Taylor still sitting on the potty while Luke is done and running around playing}
Taylor: LUKE C'ERE!!!!! {repeat as many times as it takes increasing in volume and adding NOW here and there}
Luke: WHAT?
Taylor: Bring me myyyyyyyyyy........{thinking} BLOCK!
Taylor: LUKE C'ERE!!!!! {repeat as many times as it takes increasing in volume and adding NOW here and there}
Taylor: Bring me myyyyyyy........bunny! {on and on}

Taylor: {whispering} Luke......c'mere.
Luke: {skoots his potty over to sit across from her}
{hugs and kisses}


45 mins and counting of screaming from Taylor saying "GET IT OFF ME, I DON'T LIKE IT"...why you ask? I tried BJ's diapers. Apparently they don't meet her standards. uke liked them at first when he saw them because they had stars on them....he started singing tinkle tinkle little star but then he decided he didn't like them once Taylor flipped out. He's' over it.....she's not. lol She even kicked the pack of diapers when she walked by it.

Strained a ligament in my foot. Ridiculous. Sooo thankful it's my left and doesn't keep me from driving. Have a super sexy shoe to wear and Taylor immediately told me "I don't like the shoe Mommy." I don't like it either Miss Thing. She thinks she's the go to girl now...last new pair of shoes I got she said she didn't like and she turns her nose up whenever I wear them. She however likes certain shirts I wear and complements me on those. She also has opinions on my hair. lol She doesn't always like what I put on her....seriously? She's TWO!

Luke got a hair cut without crying AT ALL. :) A little whining and no cape but hey sitting with Daddy without me in sight is working! Taylor had to stand on my knees and watch the whole time. When we told her Luke was gonna get a hair cut she got a very concerned look on her face and said.....Luke cries for haircut. lol They are VERY into the lollipops afterwards. :) Taylor keeps telling Luke his haircut is NICE and she keeps touching it and saying it's soft. :)

Thursday, August 26, 2010


{Luke wakes up crying}
Taylor: It's okay honey.
Luke: Stop it Teeya.

{Ali barked at a noise}
Taylor: It's okay Buddy.

{Taylor grabs Luke's hand}
Taylor: You're hand goes HERE!

{Walk in their room in the morning}
Luke: Hey you, Stinker! (to me)

Taylor: Daddy is CRAZY!

{Taylor comes running up to me with red crayon out both sides of her mouth and onto her cheeks}
Taylor: Look Mommy, I color my lips like Mommy!

Snippets from today

{Taylor was pushing the fake food off of the table}
{Luke grabs her arm and looks her right in her eyes at close range}
Luke: Tee-ya NO! You're being a little stinker.

{potty time}
(last two days BOTH have been pooping on the potty before nap) yay.
{Taylor pooped...flush....celebratory dancing/jumping/yelling}

Luke: Luke big poopie tooo!!!!

{running around naked, then sitting over and over, he poops but stands up too early while he's still going because he's so excited to see drops on onto the floor and he steps in it all while Taylor steps on the heat vent right beside him and cuts her foot. It was bleeding...both were screaming. Luke because 1.)he was tramatized that the poop was on the floor and not in the potty and 2.)because he stepped on the residue after I picked it up. (SO THANKFUL the potties got moved to the bathroom) Taylor was upset because of her boo boo. So I put a tissue on it, diaper Luke, clean up the poop, go grab peroxide and a band aid. Come downstairs and Taylor hobbles out of the bathroom and turns around and runs right into the table. Nice little knot beside her eye. More screaming, got her calmed down and cleaned her cut and went to put a band aid on. Taylor flipped out when she saw the band aid. Apparently that is associated with shots and I put it on thinking she'd get over it......NOPE....screamed like a maniac until I took it off. }

Taylor: NO BAN AID!!!!!!
Luke: {pointing to the bottom of his foot} Mommy, band aid foot, boo boo, kiss it.
Taylor: Luke NO! my's boo boo, my's foot! Mommy kiss MY foot!
Luke: Huke has boo boo TOO! See Tee-yah?
Taylor: Luke NO! my's boo boo, my's foot! Mommy kiss MY foot!

Taylor: Luke, wanna french fry? Here!
Luke: Thank you Sissy! Wanna drink?
Taylor: Thank you Luke! Good boy Luke, All right, Good job!

{convo on the zoo}
What did you see at the zoo?
Luke: Tractors, big camels, big tigers, cows.
Taylor: I don't like the goose! {squinting and throwing hands up} Luke doesn't like the goose either! I liked the donkeys, the donkeys were nice...they went eeee haw eeee haw. The donkeys were funny. {giggle giggle}

{THUMP, crying}
Taylor was able to climb out of her pack and play. She didn't try it again.

{Luke over and over while we were there}
Luke: I'm going to the BEACH!

{when we got back}
Luke: I'm going to the BEACH! {trying to walk out the door}
Taylor: Luke, we're home.

{Luke woke up crying, convo from their cribs}
Taylor: It's okay honey. It's okay Luke. Mommy I rub his back.
Luke: Sissy, STOP IT!

{Ali heard something fall and barked}
Taylor: It's okay Buddy! {walked over to pet him on the head}

{rocking on the rocker together and singing songs before nap}
Taylor: Luke, your hand goes HERE! {putting his hand in hers to hold}

Thursday, July 29, 2010


Taylor pooped IN the potty BEFORE nap. After the last few days......that's exciting news to me. :)
Major celebrating round here. Luke's been doing really well today, actually going to his potty and standing there when he has to pee...still going in his diaper too but it's a step in the right direction.

Taylor: Mommy! Luke fart...Luke, say excuse me!

later at lunch...{fly was flying around and I was shooing it}

Taylor: Mommy, don't hurt the fly, be nice.
{fly lands on her bunny, who was "watching" us eat from the table}
Taylor: NO FLY! (pronounced FWY) Leave Bunny Alone! Be Nice Fly!

{We got a new couch and chair today}
Luke: {the whole time during their delivery} Mommy, it's a new couch. Mommy, it's a new chair.
Taylor: WOW! Couch NICE. WOW!

Luke just said....."Okay Honey?" to Taylor. lol

Been A LOT of jealousy over my lap today. "MYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY LAP" yikes.

So I've been putting Taylor in onsies for nap to prevent the playing with I get the feeling I should check up on her and she's completely naked with no diaper. Adding some tight undies over everything hoping she can't pull them off. trial and error. Still avoiding duct tape. lol

Poop or Play Dough?

Repeat of yesterday only I caught her with just 2 handfuls. sigh.

I waited an extra hour for her to go...but no...then I hear Luke saying POOPY, POOPY! I go in right away and she's got two handfuls...luckily only the sheets, clothes, crib, bunny and pillow....not everything....still Clorox the crib, laundry, bath and a screaming mad Luke because he didn't get a bath. Didn't want floating poop on him yet.

I seriously think she enjoys doing this for Luke's viewing pleasure. She has ALWAYS loved making him laugh and getting a reaction from him.

Does this guarantee that she'll be an angel as a teenager? ;)


{while eating lunch, Luke was done, Taylor was not}
Luke: Sisssssssssaaaaaaaayyyy, What are you doing?
Taylor: I'm chewing, see? {opening her mouth}
Luke: Ewwww, Sisssssssssaaaaaaaaaay.
{giggle, giggle}

They enjoy tickling each other while singing, saying, "tickle, tickle"

Taylor devours hot dogs and loves raisins which she calls flies, pronounced by her "FWI's.
Luke loves meatloaf, spaghetti and sunflower seeds.

Jumping on their beds and singing all the songs they know, including Ring Around the Rosie and enjoy the ALL FALL DOWN part and they FALL DOWN.

They are also singing TRACTOR, TRACTOR a lot again and they know a lot of the verses.


Me: Is your name Taylor?
Taylor: NO! It's SISSY LEE BAIR!

Poop stories haven't stopped

I haven't written about one in a while.

Taylor wasn't napping so I go up to find her covered in poop. She got into her diaper. It was caked on her hands, in her hair, all over the crib and it's contents including the beloved bunny. Luke was awake too and watching her. So I beg her not to touch ANYTHING...give her a bath, and Luke too because he was mad she was getting one. Clorox the crib, wash no nap today and super moody toddlers.


{Taylor leaning over Luke's face while I was changing him}
Taylor: HEY YOU!
Luke: HEY YOU!
{giggle giggle from them both}

Taylor: {starts singing with him only 10x louder} GLORY TO GOD.....

Taylor: {proceeding to sing in loud obnoxious voice} GLORY TO GOD, GLORY...

Taylor: {she breaks} MOMMY SING!...GLORY TO GOD

Luke: {stops singing and sits there pouting}

{Apparently Luke owns the © to sing Glory to God SOLO!}

Little Later....

{Luke starts singing the ABC song}

Luke: A B C D E F GGGGGG........

Taylor: {chimes in only LOUDER}


{every time he'd start to try and sing it by himself, she'd chime in and he'd get mad and stop}

Huke & Snippet

Taylor officially calls her brother Luke not Huke. :)

For some reason she also calls him Lukey....ugh...not sure where she's hearing that, but I'm not a fan. Luke could care less. :)

{Luke burped at lunch}
Taylor: EXCUSE YOU LUKE! {She looks at me and smiles}

Taylor's new fav saying...."No Mommy, IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII's do it MYSELF!" and "YEA!" {insert sassy attitude with these for them to be accurate}

Songs & Sentences

Luke and Taylor are talking and singing more and more. I thought I'd just take a second and update on some things they are doing.

Songs they sing:
Jesus Loves Me
Jesus Love the Little Children
Glory to God
Old McDonald
Ring Around the Rosie
Patty Cake
Itsy Bitsy Spider
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (mostly Luke, Tinkle Tinkle lol)
ABC Song

On the way home from church yesterday I asked them in the car when they did in church and Taylor says: "I had a SNACK! crackers and pretzels and juice!" The Luke says, "I played with train." and Taylor says, "I colored!" They are talking so much!

Grandma and Grandpa Bair took them to the park and they told me they went on a walk and found acorns, rocks and sticks! It's so cute to see them talking so much.

Taylor has been lining up her stuffed animals and dolls in her crib all sitting up around her and she covers a baby with a blanket. Luke the other night tucked in his basketball under a blanket. lol

They are wanting BIG hugs and BIG kisses from me all the time.

We were watch a photo DVD from our wedding and they jumped up and down screaming MOMMY, DADDY KISSING! lol They got all excited naming people...jumping up and down and screaming the whole time. :)

This morning I gave Luke and Taylor each a book while I got ready. Taylor looked at hers and when she was done she says to Luke:

Taylor: HUKE MY'S BOOK! {reaching out for his}
Luke: {Picking up the book that he wasn't paying an attention to before and bear hugging it.}
Taylor: NO HUKE! SISSY'S BOOK! {reaching out for it}
Taylor: NO WAY HUKE! {Throwing herself down squealing} MOMMY....MY'S BOOK!


Taylor: Love you Mommy. Love Huke, Love Daddy, Love Mommy.


{After Lunch, Luke on the potty...Luke starts to pee}
Taylor: {Looking at Luke's pee coming out} GOOD BOY HUKE! YOU PEEING! {clapping} YAY HUKE!
Luke: I'MA GOOD BOY! {Luke stops peeing}
Taylor: UT peee.
Luke: {starts peeing again}
Taylor: {Looking at Luke's pee coming out} GOOD BOY HUKE! YOU PEEING! {clapping} YAY HUKE!

Taylor: UT peee.

{repeat several times. lol} Luke enjoys starting and stopping and watching it. lol

Before nap:

{repeat several times until I finally leave}

Taylor: {Taylor chasing Linx (our cat)} KISSES KITTY CAT! KISSES? KITTY CAT! KITTY CAT! HINX! kisses peez?

I got out the Little People. (I rotate toys so they get "new" things to play with) Some of the Little People are from their manger scene.

Luke: {all excited runs up to me with Joseph} LOOK MOMMY, Jesus' DADDY! :)

potty progressions....Snippets

So Luke spilled a full potty ALL over the carpet. So last night I was renting a steamer and steaming at midnight. :)

Today I moved the potties into the bathroom. Taylor didn't ask at all to go because she wasn't reminded by seeing it. :(

Luke however went into the bathroom and stood by his potty and waited for me.

Taylor said she had to go later and she was in there by herself...

Taylor: {sitting on potty} MOOOOOMMMMMMMMYYYYY C'MERE!
Then she says: DIS SONG! ....Like DIS SONG! {She wanted to tell me she liked the song on the radio} Then I go to leave and she says, STAY MOMMY!

This morning when they woke up I took Taylor out of her crib and she threw herself on me and said......LOVE YOU MOMMY. She was so dramatic about it. :)

Taylor LOVES cooked broccoli with a little bit of cheese and milk. Luke hates it. :/

Everything according to Taylor is FUNNY right now. :) Like this pic.

Jesus Loves MEEEEE

Potty Training

So potty training has been tricky some days ... like today.

Had them on their potties after lunch and before nap. Take them up for nap and Taylor starts saying she has to pee on the potty. (this has been happening A LOT, I'm thinking it's to prolong nap time) Anyhow....since she has been doing so well, I wanted to try taking her. NO PEE....just a grin. She then giggled and said "Funny Luke, jumping on the bed!" Yes Luke was jumping on the bed and we could hear him. So anyhow, we got back to the crib and she says she has to go again. Not this time. "Taylor, you were just on the potty, it's time for nap" says the Mommy. (me) lol So you know what's next right? Luke: Pee on the potty! sigh. So I take him and NOTHING but a GRIN. "Luke, pee or you're going back to your crib for nap." Luke {looking down at himself trying to pee} "STUCK!" he says. lol So I put his diaper back on and put him in his crib for nap. Taylor of course is whining she has to go again and Luke LOST it. He fell asleep earlier in the car, which never happens anymore, when we were running some errands this morning. He was asleep 10 mins tops....and what a mess that causes. He screamed and screamed, MOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYY POTTTTTTTTTTTTYYYYYYYYYY PEEEEEEEEEE..........over and over. After several attempts at laying him back down...It's now 3 and I finally broke down and went up and held him until he crashed. That all started at 12:45. I'm now covered in snot and tears but it's quiet...for now. :)


So on the way up to Pappy and Grandmas yesterday...Luke sees some tractors.

Luke: Tractor! Tractor Wheels! :)
Luke: {crying}
Taylor: HUKE NO! {pointing her finger at him}
Nick: Taylor, stop it, mind your own business.
Luke: SIS-SAY......NO!
Me: Luke Stop.

{for the next several minutes there was a stare down between them in silence}

Nick said it reminded him of two cats glaring each other down before fighting. Neither would look away from each other and they had some serious, not budging faces on. :)

Cracks me up.

Me: What's the matter?
Taylor: Daddy no! Mommy, HUG, UP!

Both Luke and Taylor peed on the potty this morning. They had dry diapers after eating breakfast and then had "real" pees. lol YAY!

Praying & Singing Worship Music

This morning Taylor insisted on praying for baby Jacob. (Jacob is our youth pastor's son. They were with him Sunday during church. I was told they were telling Jacob NO to everything that morning...bossy little stinkers) Anyhow...normally at meal times we ask Luke and Taylor if they want to pray for anyone and they list people and we pray for them. Taylor sort of started this on her own by adding names when we were praying way back. Anyhow...this morning.....she wanted to pray for baby Jacob out of the blue. So we did. She also then wanted to pray for Mommy, Daddy, Pappy, Mick, Kim, Grandma, Luke and Taylor.

Luke then prayed for church. :) He said, God is God is....AAAAmen Church! They say God is God is....because we sometimes do the, "God is great, God is good, let us thank him for our food, by his hands, we are fed, give us Lord, our daily bread, Amen."

Last night Taylor prayed for babies, Pappy and Mick. Sometimes she prays for her bunny too. :)

Then we're outside for lunch and we prayed. Taylor wanted to pray for the butterflies, flowers, sky, grass and BOYS! :)...she also wanted to pray for Jacob, Georgie (the neighbor girl) Mommy and Daddy. Luke loves chasing butterflies as a side note. :)

We were listening to the radio and "Glory to God" was on. The whole song played and then Luke was coloring and I started hearing him sing........"Glory to God....Glory to God....Glory to God, FOREVER!" Soooooooooo adorable. Hopefully I'll get a video up of it soon. I've been having trouble posting video to the blog so we shall see.

It's amazing, Taylor especially will bring up names when we ask who she wants to pray for. Not the same family names but she will name names of youth/young adults that we have ministered to. She prays for Hannah who is in the Navy and she rarely gets to see her but she still remembers time to time to pray for her. So adorable and sweet.

They sing it better than I. ;) Hear the song here.

{Luke gets up from his potty and walks off}
Me: Luke, stay on the potty.
{Luke walks back to the potty, looks down and then pees on top of it}
Me: Luke you're peeing.....sit!
Luke: Pee Potty, YAY!
He proceeds to start and stop on command in the potty...and cheers every time he pees. Taylor was looking very closely and joining in on the celebrating when he went. He sometimes though is so excited to look and see the peeing that he shoots in the air! lol I've added a big towel around his potty for that reason. :)

Rock a bye baby. We moved our nicer rocker up to LT's room. Since then in the mornings we've been doing "Rock a Bye Baby" on it. First it was one at a time which the other one would quickly announce when it was HUKE'S or SISSY'S turn. lol Then they started both getting up together and giggling. So cute.

They continue to tell each other to "SHARE" the steps. :)

Monday, June 7, 2010


While going up the stairs to nap:
{side by side}
Taylor: Mines Stairs Huke! No!

{Nick kisses me}
Taylor: Screaming and throwing herself on the couch.
Luke: No Daddy!

(Sometimes they like when Nick kisses me......sometimes NOT) :)
