I’m long overdue to give Peyton her own page on my blog. I thought about just changing the “Baby P” page to a “Peyton” page, but the Baby P page is all about when she was in the womb, and now that she’s actually here she needs her own page on which I can post her shenanigans. So here goes:

  • My youngest
  • 2013
  • Fort Wayne, IN
  • Peyton pony
  • Curious: Loves to stare at everything
  • Likes: Curling her toes, sticking out her tongue, her pink animal rattles, when Matt sings to her, the “Itsy Bitsy Spider”, “Suit & Tie” by Justin Timberlake,
  • “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor
  • Dislikes: The color yellow, having to wait for anything, pacifiers
  • Loud: Has a healthy set of lungs

    Ahhhhh Peyton. First you gave me gestational diabetes… now you have a milk allergy. I am not sure which is worse: The florescent green runny diapers you made prior to diagnosing your allergy, or the absolute diaper blow-outs you are having now that momma is “off the sauce” (dairy). Love ya.

    Peyton slept through the night 3 nights in a row and then just as promptly stopped. I asked her what gives and I swear she stuck out her tongue at me, gave me a quasi baby thumbs up, and gurgled something like “Oh yeah.”

    So Peyton will stare, bug-eyed and mesmerized, for hours at the bookcase in our living room. She will smile as if transfixed. I’m pretty sure she thinks it’s a giant monolith she should worship. There was, after all, a giant baby at the end of that movie…

    Peyton is watching my “Elaine-like” (Seinfeld) dancing and is laughing at what her future holds…

    Uh oh….already a JT fan. At least she doesnt have Beiber Fever. And maybe that’s why she didn’t like me holding her at the park, wasn’t I wearing a yellow shirt?

    Peyton is a sweet but different little girl. She’s diggin’ rice cereal and green beans, and not so much lovin’ oatmeal. And with the boys I remember sweet potatoes came out like they went in: With her it’s just “brown around the town.” 🙂

    Peyton absolutely hates it when I vacuum. She puts her hands over both ears and screams and cries. I’m thinking it’s a sign less is best, right?

    For New Year’s, Peyton had her first experience today with broccoli (yeah!) and puffs (nay 😦 ). Unfortunately the puffs fell victim to her favorite new play along: the dropping game. Mom is not impressed.

    Shredding paper really keeps Peyton happy and busy. Too bad I then have to keep her from eating it.

    Well we had a first today: One I never experienced with either of the boys. Miss P stuck her hands down her pants, pulled out her poop, and decided to play with it. Then, disgusted with her messy hands, she proceeded to wipe them on her shirt before mommy would “notice.” Why do they always pull these shenanigans the morning after a nice long bath?

    The carpet cleaners just left. Now Peyton is pulling all of the dish towels out and is cleaning the hardwood. Soon she’ll take some butt wipes to the windows. She is already so far ahead of her brothers…

    Great. Now my “becoming as picky as Matt” youngest child won’t even eat pancakes. Pancakes! WTH!

    As an exactly 22-months-old present, someone just stood diaper-less by her Elmo potty and peed down her legs. I’ve been told she’s a lot like her momma was at that age…

    My child can barely say 20 words, but having already mastered “Elmo,” she has just demanded “Disney!” #raisedbytelevision

    Help! My daughter is addicted to hot dogs! It is one of the few foods she asks for by name… every friggin’ day!

    Addendum to my August post: So Peyton spent a larger part of this weekend scouting out every single cobweb on her jungle gym and around the perimeter of the house. She told all the spiders “No eat my hot dog!” Today during library story-time, we did the Little Miss Muffet rhyme. When along came the spider, Peyton screamed “DIE!!!!!” at the top of her lungs. I. Love. This. Child.

    So a certain someone really loves to watch me get ready in the morning, forage through my make-up drawer, and get ready herself. But since she has no concept of product usage, it’s really amusing to watch her attempt to put deodorant on her cheeks and old tubes of Lansinoh cream on her eyelids.

    You know what’s awesome? Awesome is when the vacuum won’t pick up the dead ants but your daughter happily will! She’ll even deposit them in the trashcan free of charge. Did I mention earlier today we built a leaf “house” for the stink-bug we had been playing with?

    We went to feed the fish in the neighborhood pond this afternoon. Someone decided the fish would most definitely like the bread crumbs better if she pre-moistened them: by licking each morsel. Apparently I didn’t feed her enough lunch…

    “Sometimes you get tired when your kids wear you out.” (Long, long, long pause). “Do I wear you out, mommy?” It must be the 3rd mug of coffee in my hand and the beaten down look on my face…

    Someone was inducted into the “mouth washed out with soap” club last night. She might have even been the youngest inductee yet! How is it that my Sweet Pea cannot prounounce her “J’s” “S’s” and several other consonants but when it comes to swearing her annunciation is crystal clear!

    Peyton at family game night: “Mom? You know the next game? Can we not play it?”
