4 months old

Peyton turned 4 months a couple of weeks ago and boy has she grown up. She keeps me on my toes with new accomplishments each day. She is smiling so much and laughs when her daddy is being silly. She has successfully turned tummy to back and most recently back to tummy. It is so sweet to look at her face when she does it...she is so proud! She is trying so hard to be a big girl and doesn't like to lay around anymore. She sits up in her Bumbo to play with toys and she is learning to love her new Exersaucer that she can stand up in. We went in for her 4 month check-up and shots and she weighed in at a hefty 15lbs 5ozs which puts her in the 80%. She grew quite a few inches and is now 25" and in the 75%. She loves eating her rice cereal and I have to keep her from trying to feed herself and shoving the spoon down her throat in the process. She loves holding her bottle herself and we have transitioned to using the sippy cup when it is time for juice. She still hasn't been the best sleeper so we started a new routine after talking to the pediatrician and the past few nights have gone much better. Hopefully before long, we will have day and night sleep conquered. Bath time has become especially fun now that Peyton loves to kick her feet and splash mommy & daddy...she finds this HILARIOUS. Andrew took some great pictures over the past month which he promises a return to the blog to the meantime, a few from mommy's mediocre skills.

During the flood of Atlanta, my friends Doris and Leslie escaped the torrential downpours of the ATL for the hot humidity of Augusta and their first glance of Peyton's nursery. Doris was bummed to not be performing surgery, but Peyton and I so enjoyed their visit!

Don't ask what Peyton was doing here...pretty sure it was something influenced by "Aunt Doris."

We love taking evening walks and last night was the first time Peyton needed a little jacket

Bath time is also known as play time

Today marks the end of Andrew's elective/vacation month and he headed out early this morning for his first day in the ICU. Overnight call every 4th night won't be fun, but hopefully it won't be as bad as August. Peyton and I are looking forward to hitting the road again to visit friends and family to keep us from going crazy in this house.

She is so so cute! And Jayci still doesnt always hold her own bottle . . . maybe I should stop holding it for her!
