taylor grace

she is rapidly approaching her second birthday (t-minus 20 days and counting)..

if you haven't seen or for that matter "heard" her lately, you are missing a treat to behold…

obviously this is our first child…
i haven't ever been around developing children before…
she may be "slow" or "behind" most children her age….
but I will give you some examples of her conversations and you decide where she might be developmentally…

taylor: "what doin daddy?"
daddy: "typing on the computer"
taylor: "daddy working"

(I haven't seen the damage yet, but from rumors I have heard, on her visit to Grammy and Pop's this weekend, Pop's latest Saint Bernard — weighs in at a paltry 185 pounds — apparently got close to taylor's leg and gave her a "kiss")
mommy: "taylor, what happened to your leg?"
taylor: "bernard is sorry mommy"

(exchange with taylor the other morning when getting her out of bed)
daddy: "hey baby girl. do you want a banana for breakfast?"
taylor: "no daddy. i would like some waffles please"

(any time a Sonic comes into view)
taylor: "fries! fries please!"

i will try to do a better job of keeping track of these exchanges and I am sure they will get even more detailed as the time passes…
i can probably also thank mommy's most inquisitive gene for all the wonderful questions that await us in the future…
one would have thought that daddy's always-have-an-answer gene would have canceled that one out…

such is life I guess..
