This past week was one very very busy week…filled with lots of highs and lows. We started the week with a lovely playdate with Payton’s bud, Georgia. Good times always, this was a high! Once it stopped raining we took them outside to snap a few pictures…the rain has returned. =( 40’s and rainy this week…this is a low.
As you know…Payton turned one last week but we didn’t have her birthday party until this past weekend. Well 6AM Saturday morning I got super sick with a stomach bug so I had to miss her whole party. =( I was so proud of Byron, my oh so super husband, for hosting this party solo! I am still so down on the fact that I missed her first birthday party. Sick = low, super-husband = high. Plus since I was sick I didn’t get to snap any pictures of her party…definite low.
Payton had her 1 year check-up…she completely flipped her height/weight percentiles! She was 80% for weight and 35% for height…short and chunky. Now she is 40% for weight (20lb 8.5oz) and 75% for height (29.75 inches)…growth spurt! High! Healthy little girl = high! 4 pokes at the end of the appointment (iron level check, MMR, chickenpox and flu shot) = LOW!
Since Payton has turned one…and I mean she is only 12 months and 5 days old…things are already different! She is walking like a champ, standing up to walk on her own, getting into every single drawer and cabinet she can reach, climbing up onto the couch…all highs (well kind of)…but, she has also started throwing major tantrums and flopping all over the place when she doesn’t get her way. She tries to bite Daddy when he says “no” and screams/fusses because she thinks she will get her way. LOW! Plus she has started waking up in the night screaming bloody murder, screaming like I have never heard her scream before. I have no idea what this is about…night terrors? Afraid of the dark? It is a definite low and it breaks my heart to hear her like this.
Now we come to this week. This will be a hard week. It is just PJ and I…Daddy is in New York this week doing Microsoft stuff. We already miss him. Low. Today we went to the Kids Quest Children’s Museum…trying to find things to do now that it is always raining out. It is a neat little place! High!
Wish us luck this week!!! =)
