Things Blaire Says


Since Blaire turned two at the end of February she has been learning so. many. words. Prior to turning two, she wasn’t using many phrases, but lately she’s been putting all kinds of words together. This stage of life is so much fun! She’s learning new words every day and is (obviously) communicating more with us than ever before. 


I love you.

I’m fast! (Also, I’m silly!) As she’s running through the aisles of Target.

See you later. And sometimes Later, see you!

There it is!

Awesome! And if you ask her to say “Something” she says Awesomething

I did it!

Where are you? Mostly to our pets when they’re hiding from her. ;)

Excuse you. (To herself.) And when you explain that she should actually be saying “Excuse me” she says Excuse you me. It’s adorable.

See you, daddy. Love you. This is probably the sweetest thing I will ever hear in my entire life.

Oh, Blaire. You’re growing up so quickly. You’re currently obsessed with babies and it’s so sweet. Your little personality grows more and more every day. If there’s something we don’t understand, you’re so resourceful at letting us know what you want. Like over the weekend when you wanted to watch Paw Patrol. You brought your dad the remote, and said This! and pointed at your Paw Patrol coloring book. We are so proud to be your parents and love looking at the world through your beautiful eyes. 

What fun things does your toddler say? It’s kind of breaking my mama heart to know that soon enough she’ll say things correctly all the time and we’ll miss her adorable little made up phrases. xo

    She’s so cute! Also, I’m an adult but I fully intend on adopting “awesomething” into my vocabulary :)

    So cute! Avery had a million adorable sayings they I never want to go away. One of my current favorites is “paint nail” for nail polish. “Mommy, my paint nail all gone! ”
    I don’t correct her, hoping to keep these little phrases around for as long as possible!

      That is so cute! I want to just bottle them up and keep them like this… at least for a little while! They’re just growing up too quickly.

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben
  • Bsquared #BlaireandBen 😍😘☺️
  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
