New Territory

Payton is doing so much new these days. He squeals, giggles, writhes, holds his breath, thhhhpppppppphhhhhhhs, and grunts (mostly when he's trying to poop). He is more JOY everyday and Paul and I are amazed at how much more we love him every minute. We watch him sleep sometimes. Probably a funny sight to see two parents, huddled over their child's crib, just each him. He sleeps just like me(pre-Payton, that is), hard as a ROCK. He purses his little lips together so sweetly and I wonder if he dreams.

We pray over him as he sleeps. How can we ever remember to pray it all? We won't. So we pray that God will take care of anything we forget in our millions of prayers for him.

He is "scootching" a little too. When we lay him on a blanket he will turn himself to get to a toy and try really hard for about 10 minutes. Then he gets really mad and grunts a lot, until someone comes to rescue him. He LOVES his doggie, Wrigley. It's easy to see, already, that they are going to be best buds! She loves him too. He likes to just watch her play on the floor, even when she is oblivious to him. She loves to like his face (yuck) and clean up his spit-up off of the floor (more yuck). Hey, we have a lot to do, so we don't mind. :) She takes good care of him.

He will be 6 months old soon. Where did that half of a year go? I am amazed. It seems like yesterday, I was packing my bags and worrying how my life was never going to be the same again. That's right, stupid won't. And, PRAISE THE LORD for THAT!

"Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from Him." Psalm127:3

There is spit-up on my Bible...."Wrigley...."

These people are always smoochin' on me. They can't get enough of my sweet little cheekers! Daddy's wiskers tickle!
Am I a doll? Really? I know that winter-wear is necessary, but really, do you realize these mittens have no thumbs?

Payton- 4 Months

My Favorite time of the day is right before bedtime. Mommy thinks it's really funny to tickle me while she puts lotion in every little creavis. I am pretty much ticklish anywhere and everywhere. Now I squeal when I giggle and sometimes get so worked up that I pee a little. :) Look out mommy!

Spitting favorite game. :) My mommy smells so GOOD!


Payton loves his you can see. He often falls asleep with them in his arms.
My First SOLID food!

I don't have to brown-nose...I have mommy and daddy wrapped around my sweet little finger.

Tasty Prunes! Hey- they do the trick!

Payton loved his first experience with solid food. He ate, and ate, and ate. I guess it's not hard to believe that our little porker likes to eat. He is such a big boy. It's a little hard for mommy to let him grow up so fast. I know God is working on teaching me to let HIM take control of my baby's life. Small steps.
