9 months...the most fun so far!!

I mean it...if I thought she was fun before, its 10 times better this month!  She is beginning to crawl, she claps constantly and talks all day long!  She is waving bye-bye and doing Patty Cake!

At her 9 month check up, P
  • weighed 15lb 9 oz (11th percentile)
  • was 27 3/4 inches long
  • talked and walked for the doc!
  • Doc said she was "pretty perfect"

She sticks her tongue out when she is concentrating!

Rocking the piggytails!  I'm soo glad she has all that silly hair on top!

now that she's semi-mobile...this is her favorite past time!  MAKING A MESS!

8 months!

When my girl turned 8 months old, I started to realize...this kid's growing up on me!  She is finally getting big and she has the funniest personality!  I think she is starting to look like me when I was a baby! 

This month, she got a BUNCH of new toys so we
could spend plenty of time outside!

The car is definitely her favorite!

Payton's first Easter

I think mommy and daddy had more fun on the first easter than Payton,
UNTIL - We showed her EASTER EGGS!!

Her first Easter basket!

And of course...we had a wonderful day at church!

She did turn 7 months, even though I didn't blog it!!

This month...Payton is sitting up very well! 

She is drinking out of a sippy cup...kind of!  She mostly spits it all over herself!

The mohawk has made a return appearance!  Thank goodness...I was missing it!

She is in loooove with puffs!  It could be the first food she has ever liked!

Spring Break in SC

Last week, we had an amazing Spring Break in South Carolina with our favies!! It was our first vacation with Ms. P and she did really well!  The car ride was about 9 hours each way - and surprisingly - she stayed pretty happy!

Even though the girls fought over toys most of the is very apparent that they are and will be besties!!


We had their Easter pictures taken...which was kind of a train wreck!  Good news, though...Brittney managed to pull some amazing shots of the girls!



This is possibly the coolest kid ever...

Of course...the vacation ended too quickly - and like left me wishing I was a Carolina Girl. :(

No kidding... look very closely!  There is a tooth poking out of there!  No wonder she has been waking up in the middle of the night again...The doc said that's when her teeth are moving the most!  The doc looked in her mouth Friday morning and it wasn't there...then I saw it Friday night!  I scared the mess out of Jon when I screamed OH MY GOSH!!!  He came running because he thought someone was hurt...whoops!

Happy Half a Year Payton!!

Payton turned 6 months old last week!  It's going too quickly, but I think this
is the most fun month so far!

At her 6 month check up, P:
*Weighed 14.1 lbs (9th percintile!)
*Measured 27 inches long
*Got 3 shots :( (luckily, no more until 12 months!)
*Got a perfect report from the Doc once again!!

This month... 

Payton has started sitting up all by herself!

We started feeding her baby food...which she LOVES!

Her first bite...

She has started to enjoy tummy time a little more!

...and is rolling over and pushing her booty up like she's going to take off!

I know it's early...way too early...but she loves to stand up!  HELP!!

She's got enough hair (at least on top) for a ponytail!! Yay!

And we've gotten to take her outside several times to play...which is her favorite!!

She was 5 months old but I'm sooo behind...she's almost 6 months now!!

I have been sooo busy that I almost bypassed her 5 month post!  She is gettig so long, and just starting to put a little meat on her bones!!  She is starting to roll over and sit up!

This month, she has learned to suck her toes...constantly!

She is starting to sit up on her own, although she usually ends up flat on her face!!

And, most exciting of all....SHE'S SLEEPING IN HER CRIB!!  She had absolutely no issues moving to her big girl bed and she even sleeps better!

And she even earns us a little money on the side!!

Payton's 4 month check up was today...and so were her 4 month SHOTS

Baby wasn't the only one crying!

She weighs 11 lbs and 11 oz...(tiny, little runt!) 
She is perfecctly healthy and the doctor called her a supermodel baby (tall and skinny!)
She is in the 94th percentile for height and the 20th percentile for weight!

Payton's B-Day!!

Payton turned 4 months old on Saturday! 
Time is flying by and P is changing so much every day! 

She has been very busy since 3 months!  This month, Payton is...

Sitting in her bumbo seat...with a little gangsta lean!

sucking those hands...especially the thumbs!

Turning her body 90 degrees...I still can't explain how she's doing it!

 rolling over and staying up on her side!

 sitting up in her boppy pillow for about 10 seconds at a time.  Then, she scoots
her butt down and rests her head!

 jumping in her Johnny Jump Up!!  (And screaming I LOVE IT the whole time!)

 noticing her feet and can I get this in my mouth?

She learned to squeal and does it pretty much non-stop!  Watch this video...
