Taking Drastic Measures!!

Over the last few weeks, I have really been struggling with Peyton chewing on everything. He has decided to chew and eat his bed. I bought a gummie rail cover, and it worked for a couple weeks. Then he started to pull the gummie up off the bed, to get to the wood. He is a mess!!! My mom, sister and I decided to come up with our own bed rail cover. The covers are hard to find when you do not have a standard bed rail. We bought some soft fabric, and placed foam in it. Then we tied the foam tubes to his bed. So far so good. I bet though in the next few days, he will figure some way to untie the ribbon to get to the wood!!!

Where does the time go??

I can't believe that Peyton is 10 months old. It seems so unreal to me that he will be 1 year old in 2 months.

Peyton has changed a lot over the last 2 months. He is now crawling, pulling up on everything, walking with a walker, opening cabinets, talking up a storm, and is getting his 6th tooth. He also throws a ball really well with his left hand. Daddy is very proud, and already in his mind has him drafted in the NFL. We think that Peyton will probably be walking in the next few weeks. We have a bet that he will be walking by his first birthday. He wants to walk so bad!!!

Peyton is also starting to eat table food. He is not really that good at it. He is really good though at gagging and throwing up the whole food!!! I think that he is going to be on puree foods until he is two.

Well, the summer is almost over. It has been a great summer. We have done lots of things and even traveled a little. I have to say though that the best thing about our summer is the new addition to the family. Addison is getting so big. Peyton is ready for her to get up and crawl around with him.

I have attached a video clip of Peyton getting his teeth brushed and talking to himself in the mirror. If their is a mirror in the room, Peyton is content!!! Enjoy!!

Peyton's First Hair Cut

Today I went to get my hair done and decided that Peyton could use a little trim. He did so good. He sat on the booster seat all by himself, and did not cry once. He is such a big boy.

Meet Our Little "Angel" Addison Elisabeth!!

My sister Lezlie and her husband Scott have been through so much over the last 5 years to start a family. Our whole family has been with them every step of the way through this adoption process and infertility.

Through many many prayers, they were blessed with Addison Elisabeth. Scott and Lezlie have been in Kansas since last week, and will hopefully be returning home this week sometime as a family of 3!!!!

Here are some pictures of their new bundle of joy. Peyton, Dwayne and I were in Kansas over the weekend to see Addison. Peyton liked her, other than she woke him up from his naps a lot. He just smiled at her and of course tried to pull her hair. I am so excited for them to come home and watch them experiece what Dwayne and I have experienced with Peyton over the last 10 months.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

Is That a Baby Ruth in Peyton's Bath Water??

No, it is not a Baby Ruth. I wish that it had been. Grammy was giving Peyton a bath and he decided to give her a gift. This is definitely the first time that Peyton has done this. He was pretty proud of himself. I thought that it was so gross. Grammy of course had to give him another bath.

He was just having so much fun, plus I think that he is going through a growth spurt. He ate 3 jars of baby food and 4 ounces of milk for dinner. He had a lot to unload!!!

Enjoy these classic pictures!!!
