Yeah She Looks Like Me!!

So since Peyton was born I feel she looks like Tyrel's sister Tranell and so does everyone else. But recently she has changed a little and even had a couple people say she looks like me. Over my reunion my mom gave me some baby pictures and yeah Peyton looks like me!! Trip and Cooper even saw the pictures and said "Peyton". I think the only difference is the nose. I tried to recreate the shot of me as a baby the best I could ( I think I am almost 4mo in the picture and Peyton is 6mo) so take a look, what do you think?

He Makes Me Melt Like a Popcicle on the 4th of July

This weekend is going to be crazy with a craft fair and my family reunion next week so I thought I would get pictures caught up before I head out. The 4th of July as always was a lot of fun. We went to Pagosa Springs as always and did breakfast at the church, the parade, the rodeo, carnival, and fireworks at Tyrel's aunt and uncles. The kids loved it all. Trip was so excited all weekend that he completely forgot he was potty trained and wouldn't take a nap. And since we got back he has asked daily to go to papa and grandma's house. The boys were fearless on all the rides (even Trip, cooper hated them at 2yrs, but I guess it helps to have a big brother to copy) and all in all we were exhausted oh and in between these events we rode horses around the house and four wheelers. Those boys could go non stop on those four wheelers if we'd let them. The fireworks were okay this year. The girl holding Peyton is Tyrel's best friend from high school's wife. She was awesome and didn't want to give Peyton back. Her and her husband are leaving for Korea to teach English for a year, cool uh? Anyways hope you all had a great 4th!

Peyton's 1st Foods

I guess now they recommend starting babies on solids at 4mo. Well I don't really like feeding solids so I just started this week and even then I don't know how much I will do. I mean she has been sleeping through the night for a long time and is chubby so really how much more does she need? So for journaling purposes here are pictures of her first solids. It's a nightmare. She just sticks her tongue out or literally spits it all over me!! Also she started rolling over a week ago. So at just over 5mo. That fact is also for my sake since I do scrap books I can come look at these dates when I get to it.

My Big Guy is 4!!

Cooper turned 4 on June 28th!! I can't believe I am old enough to have a 4 year old. Cooper is such a neat kids. He is an amazing big brother. He is always so caring with Trip and Peyton and when they are sad he is always trying to cheer them up. For his birthday Cooper got to take his pony Trigger up in the mountains with Daddy, Papa, Spur, Sackett, and Trip. I was supposed to go, but Peyton was running a fever with either a bladder or kidney infection. They had a blast. The only bummer was the horses were having a hard time crossing a creek so Tyrel threw Cooper on his horse while he led the horse across and the horse threw Cooper off. He was more scared than hurt so on the way back he rode with Tyrel, because he was afraid to ride alone. But Tyrel was very caring and patient this weekend getting him back on his pony and by the end Cooper had a smile again. Anyways after they got back we had roasted hot dogs over the campfire, had cake, and opened presents.
