*To take walks to the pond and watch us feed the duckies
*Eating "real" people food.
*Talking to family on Skype. You wave and try to give kisses!
*Any type of remote control

*(Birthday)Party- Your Best Friend, Halle turned one! 9-19-10


*Waved hi/bye! 9-18-10
*Pulled yourself up to your knees! 9-20-10
*Daddy and I swear you can say "hi"...you make the same noise everytime we say hi to you or one of us walks into the room.
*Mommy taught you how to type on the computer. To push each key with one finger, and you did it by yourself!


This area has gotten MUCH better! You've been sleeping really well. You go down by 9, haven't even really been waking up in the middle of the night either, you wake up by around 5. (Which is totally ok, 9-5 I can do!!)

Recently, you've started waking up several times again, but I'm pretty sure you're about to get some more teeth! So we'll see...


I'm realizing more and more that you'd rather have "big people" food. So if I'm eating something that you can have, I'll tear up small pieces and let you have some! You had applesauce for the first time, and liked it. I've just come to the conclusion that you are going to be a picky eater! That's ok, I'll just keep trying foods and we'll eventually find things you will eat more than once!


*You're hair is getting longer and you're getting more of it!
*"No" is a word you are learning quickly. Only because you hear it ALOT these days, lol.
*You have the CUTEST grin on the planet. (I entered you into the Gerber Baby photo contest!! We'll see what happens!)
*Still only has the two bottom teeth, but as of lately I think you've started teething hard core, so we'll see if you have a few more by the end of this next month!
*You continue to give the sweetest, slobbery kisses :) ...You love to sit in front of the mirror and kiss the "baby in the mirror"
*Still not crawling but you "inchworm" across the floor, you scrunch up then launch. It is the cutest thing. (Of course, everything you do is cute, but still...)

I cannot begin to express how much fun this stage is! Peyton is learning new things left and right! She is a hoot and she knows it. With each month that passes, ONE gets closer and closer. I don't want her to grow anymore! I do, however, look forward to the holidays coming up. I can't wait to take the infamous pumpkin patch pictures and to see what she thinks about Christmas lights and decorations! ::Sigh:: I love being her Mommy :)

Otown, at last!

We spent this past weekend in Orlando (Oviedo, actually) visiting my family. It's been a long six weeks (Dad's on chemo and Peyton had her shots, can't be around him for SIX WEEKS!)and everyone was having MAJOR Peyton withdrawls! We got together to celebrate my sister Amanda's birthday (which is actually tomorrow). Dad wasn't feeling that great on Saturday, but was much better on Sunday so we went to lunch at a cool restaurant downtown. Though it was hot, it was bearable to walk around a little and Peyton got to watch ducks and geese swim around Lake Eola :) We had a great time, as always, just hanging around and catching up with one another.....LOVE it!

Checking out the goose/swan with Uby

Our little family :)

Prayer for Brynn

This is my soon-to-be brother in law's brother Joey and family. His wife, Brynn, suffered several cardiac arrests last Sunday/Monday (she is only 24), and was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy. Long story short, the doctors didn't have much hope (due to the extensive damage to her heart) and put her on the list for a heart transplant. Today marks a week since that traumatic day and Brynn has recovered significantly!! So much has happened with her over this past week, it's truly a miracle! God is GOOD and continues to show himself through this circumstance. Please take a minute and look up her support group on Facebook (Brynn Allen Support Group) and read from the beginning all that God has done....it is truly AMAZING!! God is using what started as a very scary and traumatic situation for His glory!!

Continue to pray for Brynn and their family!!

Makeup Madness

I don't know if I've ever talked about my obsession with lip gloss and mascara...but it's BAD.

Once I'm over the excitement of using said lip gloss or mascara, it goes in my "makeup bin". I can pretty much say with certainty that once I put something in there, it's quickly forgotten. Sad but true. Every now and then I'll see the bin and go through it and rediscover things. It's like shopping all over again, haha.

This time, after looking at all the dust that had collected on top of it, I decided it was time to go through and purge.........

The infamous bin (I forgot to take a picture before I dumped it out)

This may not look like alot, but I assure you, the pile is probably about two inches high...

Downgraded to a shallow tupperware container...ahhh much better! :)
