Happy Birthday Peyton

April/May 2008
April 2010

2 years ago on April 18th we welcomed our sweet little Peyton. The funny thing is this year you've totally become crazy Peyton. You've grown so much this year. You've finally started talking in a way that we can understand. Let me tell you some of the fun things you say: I think our favorite is to hear you say Frosty, you actually say Saucy. It's really cute. You're loving to play with Bahbee (Barbie). Cameron & Taylor both go by Tay-yer and are happy that you're talking to them. They both love to play with you! Taylor loves to help you with everything and Cameron loves to make you laugh. You will watch some shows now but we are happy to say that you've followed in your sisters footsteps and you love Dora (Dordah). You can say some things really well, like mommy, daddy, night-night, bye, Cici, Papa, Nannie, eat and I'm sure there are more. Some other funny things you say are bah (like breakfast bar), mook (milk), ah-men (amen), doo-doo (Zhu-Zhu) as in Zhu-Zhu pets. You still lean on your signing for several words. You sign eat, more, please, thank you, sorry, read, amen, and milk.

You learned to walk shortly after turning 1. Now you're running, climbing and jumping. You love to climb. You climb up on top of tables often. During the 2009 summer we spent a lot of time in the water and you loved every bit of it. You even went tubing with mommy!! When fall came around we started our 2nd year at Sonshine academy. You're in the gorillas class. The class is mostly boys and you play just like a little boy. You're rough and crazy!!! November was a crazy month for you b/c you were in your first car accident when we were rear-ended on our way home from school. It scared you a lot! Then a few days later you fell off of a kitchen chair and had a head injury. You passed out for a few seconds and couldn't stay awake. It scared mommy & Papa and I rushed you to the ER. You threw up a few times, but everything looked good on your CT scan. When December came around you got to see Santa and you didn't want anything to do with him. You waved your hands at him and said uh-uh. As the Christmas season went on you began to really like the idea of Ho-Ho!! As 2010 started we were excited to see your vocabulary begin to grow. You also got to go visit your big sister Taylor at the hospital several times. You loved going for walks around the hallways of the hospital. You are very independent and I always joke that you pretty much think you're 5. It is funny to sit back and watch you. You also love to dance and begin to sway/bop whenever you here music. We are so blessed to have you in our lives and cant' wait to see what this 3rd year with you in our lives brings us.

We had a great Easter weekend!! Of course it was a bit crazy, but come on what weekend isn't crazy in our house. The pics are kind fo posted backwards, but it was easier for me that way. And since I haven't posted in so long (sorry about that by the way), I figured y'all wouldn't mind.

Peyton after a fun Easter

My big girls
Cameron & Taylor
Not really the pic of all 3 of them I was hoping for,
but hey you get what you get and you don't throw a fit.

Cameron came out of the bathroom 5 min. prior to taking pics and had just put a tattoo on her cheek. When she saw how frustrated I was she went in and washed it right off.

Taylor was mad and decided she wasn't going to take any pictures.

We got 2 together and smiling.

Peyton before church.

On Saturday our church had a big event, a helicopter Easter egg drop, I didn't do a good job taking pics there. Here are the girls when we got home.

On Friday the big girls and I dyed Easter eggs.
Here are the girls showing off all their eggs.

Trip to TN

We went to TN about a month ago for my little brother Aaron's wedding. He and Cara asked Cameron & Taylor to be their flower girls. They were pretty cute. I put their hair in sponge rollers, so their hair is pretty cute/crazy. The girls did a pretty good job I think and they were so proud to be flower girls.
The second thing we were able to do is meet our new cousin baby Owenn. We met up with Dustin's family at O'Charley's for dinner. Baby O did an awesome job and was adorable. We got to hold him and then he took a short nap.
