Easter Weekend

We started the Easter weekend with camping on Good Friday. We kept going back and forth about whether or not I would stay the night with Peyton. Luckily, my parents had an extra tent, so Peyton and I had our own space.
 
It is Alayna that is our constant challenge...it is a good thing she is so cute...she just doesn't ever stop! The ward provided breakfast and an easter egg hunt on Saturday morning.
We got home and began our other Easter traditions of cookie decorating.
And Easter egg dying.
 
 Everyone was up bright and early to see what the Easter Bunny left for us! We started with hunting for eggs outside.
 
  Easter Baskets
 
 
  A quick count to make sure we got them all.
"...five, six, sammie, eight..."
 Confetti Eggs
 
Off to Church!
Dinner at Grandma and Papas

Peyton's Firsts

After Peyton's 4 month checkup, her doctor gave us the go-ahead to start her on solids. 
 
So, for the first time, I stuck her in the Bumbo and handed her a spoon. 
 
She gobbled up everything...and managed to make a respectable mess of herself!
 
Alayna and I have been working on her first official roll-over. Here it is!

St Patrick's Day

That crazy leprachun came to our house and left a very clever treasure hunt. He turned all our food green and left a rainbow of jellybeans and gold nugget candy!

4 Months Old

10 lbs 15 oz = 5%
22?" 
Sweet little Peyton is becoming so fun! She giggles and coos and loves to show off her new tricks! She can hold her head so strong, roll to the side (which eventually turns her in a circle) and is starting to sit up.
 
 She loves her sisters almost as much as they love her. She is very happy and hardly ever noisy. She loves her naps in the swing and playing under the activity mat.
Now, if we can get her sleeping through the night again...

Spring Break

For the past 2 years, we've had family come and visit us during Spring Break...the love is now gone and no one came...boo hoo! Apparently, weddings and missions take priority :)
Sammie enjoyed sleeping in...all the way until 6:3am.
The Trampoline Place
 


Blessington Farms
 
 
 
  Pedicures and a Picnic in the Backyard

  Lots of crazy time with friends and neighbors.

Hard to Find the Time...

Sammie is so busy with school and friends that she will do whatever it takes to get time with Peyton...even if that means multi-tasking!
