3 Months

This is bitter sweet for me. My little newborn is not a newborn any more and I don't like it. She is growing up too fast. On the other end I love watching her grow and develop. She already has quite the personality!
We went to the doctor 2 weeks ago and she was 12.5 lbs and 27 in. long I'm not sure what she is now, but she is defiantly heavier.
* I love her giggles!
* Our little fishy is blowing bubbles more and more every day
* I wonder if she is going to cut teeth soon she is a drooler!
* She arches her back if she doesn't like something. She threw a little tantrum when I put her in her car seat yesterday...
* Peyt can now grab her toys and pull them in to her mouth.
* She loves to be NAKED!
* She is ticklish all over
* P is a talker, especially around 5 AM I have to keep shushing her so she doesn't wake up daddy. She is also a  SCREAMER! (video to come tomorrow) If she is really really happy she will full on scream and kick. So cute! I hope she never realizes she can do this when crying too.
* She has already learned to ignore people. She will look in any direction, but yours if she is not in the mood.
* She loves to stand, sitting is okay for her, but if she is standing she is almost always happy.
* Pey Pey is constantly rolling from tummy to back, she keeps trying to roll from back to tummy, but I still have to help her for now.
* CORRECTION! I wrote this on her 3 month day, but today (2 days later) she was on the couch and I was busy looking for something. When all of a sudden I heard her crying and sad little whimper :( I ran in to the living room (because I knew something was defiantly wrong) to find her on her belly crying. I was about to start crying myself, I was so worried. I picked her up and she laughed!  I learned a very valuable lesson today.
* She loves it when Mike and I sing to her.
* Sleep, What is that? This little stinker hasn't figured out how to sleep through the night constantly. Its an every other night kind of thing. Hopefully this isn't a habit.
*Mike said "We've got eyebrow movement, she has learned how to use them". ha ha I think she's known how to use them for a while, but Mike just discovered it so its going on the blog.

Aunt Cindy took some pics of P while she was here for Sharolee and Jason's wedding.
She did such an amazing job. Too bad she lives in WA or I'd have her take new ones all the time!

Her expression in this is priceless

 I love this picture so much. She has the cutest lil bum bum!

Spring is in the air!

It has been wonderful weather the last few days. Mckell and our kiddies went to the softball games. This was Peytons first time on the grass. As you can see she tried to eat it.

This pic reminds me of a story. I helped my friend Payden pick out his engagement ring for Annette and when we were there. The salesman joked about how I am starting P off young having her look at diamonds so already. He said whats next a pony? 
We laughed and said she already has one of those! 
This is P meeting her pony blueberry for the first time.

 Mike and I were joking around about all the stuff my body has wrong with it and we hope P gets most of Mikes genes. Here is a picture of her wearing my glasses.

Pey Pey

Over the last few weeks Mike and I have noticed that Peyton loves T.V.
(we were watching this dog for a lady in our ward)
So lately I've had the T.V. on little kids shows, it seems she likes those the best. Its all the colors and movement I'm sure.

I walked in to the bathroom to find this little cutie taking a shower with dad, so I grabbed my phone and took this. It made me laugh so hard :)

Mike and I went on a date with The Eplins and I left P with my parents. She really likes to pull hair. Dane found that out quickly.

Blowing bubbles! I constantly have to wipe her face or else her shirt gets soaked from this new trick.
 Well she was blowing bubbles, but I didn't get them before they popped.

About 15 minutes into church there was an explosion!
Why? The doctor (not my doctor) said she could either have Walking Pneumonia or Allergies. He put her on stuff that makes her have really really bad diarrhea. He warned me about it, but I didn't think it would be this bad!!! 

So here are some lovely pictures.

Looking so innocent....

Thank goodness we had Totally Toddler! I love all the advice I get from other mommies and this was a life savor. Now what to do about that bald spot??

Yes it went through 6 layers 1. Diaper 2. Stockings 3. Onsie 4. Bloomers 5. Dress 6. Blanket

At least one of us thought it was funny. 

Back to church!

When it Rains, It POURS

Written Feb. 3rd 2011
The last few weeks have been a big test for Mike and I. We’re still in this storm, but I have faith.
It all started when I got in my car and my check engine light was on. CRAP! I took it to the dealership he said you also have a head light out. So to even look at the engine and to fix the headlight he said would be about 270.00 just to start out and 3 to 4 hours. I laughed and said okay thanks and left.  
Two days later I was home just visiting with one of my bffs and I heard the garage door. I jumped up and to my surprise I saw Mike. I said Hey home for lunch?  He said No I got laid off today. I laughed and said sure, what’s really up? Then I noticed his eyes started to tear up. He was NOT joking.  I was shocked. I kept telling myself not to have a freak out because that would make Mike upset and to be strong. That lasted a few hours.  I was thinking great we just got 3K in medical bills. We have savings, but that was for my new XTerra. I had to take a BIG step back and say why do we have savings? For times like these.  Right now Mike has had about 6 interviews. Some went really great, some not so great. Some in Cali, some in Minnesota. If you know me then you know how close I am with my family. I love PG.  Were still in a big processes and I’m just staying positive. Mike is one smart guy, I didn’t just marry him for his looks. He’s got skills!
Through all of this, I find out our insurance ended well 3 days ago. I hurried and went to the Doctor and the Eye Doctor.  Peyton got all of her shots and we were content. Come to find out yesterday my little princess has a cold, to top it off today I woke up with a sore throat and so did Mike. How did P get sick and give it to us all. I know Mike and I will get better, but it breaks my heart to see her sick.
Luckily I can message my Dr. and he told me to give it a few days and if she is still eating not to come in.
As for right now. I’m waiting for something bad to happen, which is horrible to think. I know. It just seems that a lot is going wrong right now.
I have to keep taking a step back and say, I have a wonderful job available to me at anytime.  Maybe I have to wait a while to get a dog and an XTerra. That is okay, we’re going to be just fine!

Ha Ha Ha remember how I talked about something bad happening.....
I hit a pot hole getting on the free way in Lindon. It was cold. Pey slept the whole time thank goodness! 
I guess if that's as bad as it gets that is okay.
I found this today as I was cleaning up my desktop in a Word doc. Sometimes you just need to write to get all of your feelings out. Its interesting how things can change and strengthen your testimony, marriage, and family.
Life is good! Need I say more.
