It is amazing how having a baby, moving and starting a new job manage to suck up all of my time! I keep thinking things are going to calm down soon, and they never do....so here's the cliff notes version of the last few months-
Payton will be 5 months old in 2 days! I really have no idea how that has happened. She is now rolling over when she wants to, giggling like a pro (especially at her big sis and chin tickles from daddy) and has just about mastered sitting up on her own. She started purreed food about a week ago, and so far has had squash, carrots, and green beans and seems to enjoy them all. She seems to love school, her teachers love to put her hair into pig tails on the top of her head, that are way too cute. Her current mode of locomotion is to lay on her back and scoot across the floor. She has a smile that is infectious and shares it quite regularly!
Emily has adjusted amazingly well to the chaos that was our lives these past few months. She started at her new school in August with Miss Sue and loves it! School is at our church, which is only a block away from our house, so in the mornings she walks there with daddy and mommy walks to pick her up in the afternoon. She is learning all sorts of fabulous things, currently she is working on cutting and writing her name. She also seems to really love calendar time and telling us the day and month. It never ceases to amaze me the things she absorbs.
Her current favorite tv show is Phineas and Ferb, which daddy also enjoys so they spend lots of time cuddling on the couch watching it. She was in her first wedding about a month ago when Aunt Martha and Uncle Nick got married, she did a fabulous job as flower girl and then was the queen of the dance floor at the reception. She still absolutely loves books, and looks forward to our trips to the library. She is a master at using daddy's ipad and can read books, watch movies and play games on it.
She went to her first birthday party yesterday for a boy from school, according to his mom he refers to Emily as his girlfriend....they had a roller skating party and watching 3 and 4 year olds roller skate was really quite entertaining.
The girls both seem to love dady's new job working with the college kids and have a great time spending Sunday nights at the Foundation playing with the "big" kids. We will definitely be in big trouble if Chuck ever leaves ministry...the girls won't know what to do without all their grown up friends!
That is the quick recap....I really need to be better about blogging because I feel like there are so many other things I don't want to forget that I am going to if I don't put it down soon!
