5 months old!

Our little chubber is now 5 months old.  I feel as if this past month has been full of new and fun developments…Miles has been busy busy busy.  What was he up to this month?
–The day I turned 4 months old I became a full on roller…both ways!  From that point on I sleep on my tummy only!!
–How do I go get that toy I want?  I roll everywhere!  I go in circles!  I find a way.
–I am getting so much better at sitting up…by myself!
–I am a very serious dude.  I’m a no-nonsense kind of guy.  But I do love to laugh at animal noises, peek-a-boo, silly time with Daddy, anything and everything Payton does, and most of all…my handsome self in the mirror!  That dude rocks!
–I’m still sleeping through the night…11-12 hours!
–I nurse 5 times a day…I can’t wait to start solids next month!
–I LOVE blowing raspberries!  Especially at Mama with a full mouth of milk…she loves that!  Hehe.
–I mouth everything, every single thing must go in my mouth.  Everybody loves an open mouth kiss…right?!
–I found my feet this month…they are pretty amazing.  Daddy wishes he were as flexible as I am.
–Nicknames: little dude, little chubber, chubber wubber, Mr. Miles, little Michelin man…baby rolls for days.

Lots of pics of little old me:

Payton still calls her little baby brother “little dude” but half the time now calls him:
Payton: “Ohhhh good morning little chubber!”
SONY DSCPayton has a hard time remembering the word “crow” but knows that they say “ca caaaa ca caaaa”.  We were looking out the window one day and…
Payton: “Mama, I see a bunch of little <mumbles>.”
Me: “Huh??”
Payton: “I see a bunch of little <mumbles>.”
Me: “I have no idea what you are saying, huh?”
Payton: “MOM…I SEE A BUNCH OF LITTLE CACA’S!!”
Me: “Ohhh, caca’s, you mean crow…because they say ca caaa ca caaa.  Got ya.  You see a bunch of little birds.”

Miles was down for a nap, Payton wouldn’t take a nap that day, so I was exhausted.  We were in her room playing and I told her I was going to lay down on her bed and take a quick nap while she played.  My eyes were closed for 2 minutes before…
All of a sudden I felt two little toddler hands rubbing my eyebrows.
Payton: “Mom!  You have two fuzzy fuzzy super fuzzy caterpillars!!  Mom!  Are you awake?!”
Me: “Yes Payton, I can hear you.”
Payton: “But Mom, two fuzzies!  Two fuzzy caterpillars!  They are on you!”

Driving through Seattle one evenings on I-5 right by all of the tall sky-scraper buildings…
Payton: “ohhhhh…look at all those castles!”
Me: “Yup pretty cool, those castles are super tall buildings, sky-scrapers!”
Payton: “No Mom.  No.  Those are castles.”
Me: “Payton, but those…
Payton interrupting me: “No, I said those are castles.  Now put “Let It Go” back on.”
Little Miss super sass!

Hello Summer!

It is finally summer in Seattle!  It is said that summer doesn’t officially start here until July 4th.  We should be rain free for a good 2-3 months!  =)  Lots of sun with cool mornings and warm evenings.  I’ve said it before and will say it again…love the summers here but so wish that homes came with air conditioners!  90 outside isn’t considered too hot from where we are from in Texas…but with out A/C 90 outside turns to more than 90 inside…miserable!  But that never stops us from enjoying the sun!

She was NOT supposed to be in here!  Turn my back for one minute and she is playing IN her water table.  Stinker.

We started swim lessons and she LOVES them!  She loves Teacher Clark.

I am 4 Months Old!

This month has been a lot of fun…I am so much more alert and active!  I am finally on a bit of a schedule now…3 short naps and for now I sleep 12 hours at night…for now.  I can roll from tummy to back and am so so so close to rolling from back to tummy.  I am still a drool machine and want everything I can reach in my mouth.   Must.Chew.Everything.  My favorite person to drool on is Daddy…only because he loves it the most!  I love knocking blocks over, raspberries on my tummy, and bath time.  I also love when big sissy talks to me…we love talking back and forth.  1/3 of my first year is done…can’t believe how quick Mommy and Daddy are growing…hehehe.
Pics of me…lots and lots of pics of me over the last month…because I am the cutest!

Toddler Talk…things a 2 1/2 year old might say

SONY DSC
All of as sudden Payton knows every song imaginable and loves to sing all the time.  She went through a phase last week where all she wanted to sing was “Where is thumbkin…where is thumbkin?” Except her version went something like this:
P: Where is fu*#in, where is fu*#in?  Here I am, here I am…
Later that night, and the next night, and the next night…
P: Mama, sing me a song!  Sing to me “where is fu*#in”!
How do you keep a straight face to that?
SONY DSC

Every Sunday we try to have a special picnic dinner on the living room floor and watch a movie together.  Pizza is a rare treat for Payton…this was last Sunday…
Mama: Payton-pie…special treat tonight, do you want pizza?
P: Pizza?  No!  Pizza and cookies, Mama.  Pizza and cookies.

Payton’s new nickname for Miles:
P: Good morning little dude!
P: Oh no Mama, he’s spitting up!  Little dude, no spitting!
P: I love you little dude.

Mama: Payton…you are slowly driving me crazy!
P: Yes Mama, I know.

We have nightmare construction going on our whole street and driveway right now until the first week of October.  Our driveway is now gravel with huge bulldozers and trucks parked all around day and night.  One morning I got Payton up and told her we were going to go to her friend, Georgia’s, in just a little bit.  I was changing Miles’ diaper and she went downstairs to look out the front window at all the noise (this was the morning they were jack hammering our driveway to remove all of the concrete).  She comes running back up the stairs crying…
P: Oh no Mama!  Oh no!  They are crackin!  They made a mess!  We can’t go to Georgia’s now..Mama (in between sobs) how can we go?  We can’t go now!
Then 2 minutes later when Payton was back at the window:
P: STOP it!  STOP crackin!  That is my dirt!  They are playing with my dirt!! Stop playing with my dirt!

Gymnastics Show Week and Last Day of Preschool

I can’t believe preschool is over for Payton.  Her teachers were amazing and Payton had an absolute blast.  We will miss her Bunny class dearly…but now we are headed to a fun 3’s class next year…she will be a Mighty Monkey!

First day of school and Last day of school!

When a toddler dresses herself…

A handful of the photos I have collected this year of Payton taking control of what she is wearing.  When a toddler dresses herself…

This little lady rarely wears pants after noon.  We start the day off strong...then bye-bye pants!

She actually put her pants back on here!  Was put in bed for nap...protested by running around her room pantless...then they somehow made it back on!  They may be inside-out...but they are on!
