Holiday Family Pictures

One of my favorite things to do in the winter is take our holiday pictures.  Now that we've found an amazing photographer it's so easy to get it set up.  The kids have a good time.  We run around and play and end up with such great pictures.   I love to see our family get older every year.

I waited 'till the last possible minute to get these pictures taken in hopes for snow, but it never came.  It was so cold and windy this day that we had to make it super quick.  Poor Peyton couldn't really handle the cold and Jeff had to take him to the car a couple of times to warm up.   Noah on the other hand loved every minute.  I'm pretty sure he doesn't even feel the cold.  Next year I should just suck it up and realize there is no way we're having snow pictures.  Either way, we got what we needed and we were in and out in about 40 minutes.  Success.

Peyton - 17 Weeks Old

Noah 19 Weeks

Here we are another five weeks late and another update done way too late.  What a great five weeks it's been though. Peyton has been sleeping much better, started solids and is getting in to a much better routine.  The kid is growing fast and is still smiling all the time.  He's so fun to have around the house.

  • How old is Peyton?: 17 Weeks
  • Peyton is how big?:  16 lbs | Size 2 diapers | 6-9mo clothes
  • Sleep: He is still all crazy with the swaddle.  We know he wants it and sleeps great in it but then rolls over so that's not good.  We've been swaddling him with his hands out the last couple of weeks and just putting him on his belly since he can roll over anyway and he's been doing much better.  
 Up for the day between 7-8
 Nap an hour late
 Nap 1: 1.5-2 hrs
 Up for 1.25 ish hours
 Nap 2: 1.5-2 hrs
 Up for 1.25 ish hours
 Nap 3: 1-1.5 hrs
 Up until about 7p
 Down for the night around 7-7:30p
  • Milestones: We started solid food!  He eats so good and I can already tell he's going to be just like Noah eating everything we give him.  So far we've tried bananas, apple sauce, cereal, sweet potatoes and peas. 
  • What I’m excited about/looking forward to: So excited for Christmas.  Peyton is almost sitting on his own which will be so fun having him watch everyone on Christmas.  Noah is really getting into the holidays and giving and wrapping presents so I know he'll be super excited this year to be a part of everything. We'll be having lots of family time and really it'll just be a lot less work for everyone so it'll be nice to have a little break too.  Time is passing just too quick and soon enough our little guy is going to be a half a year old. Oh my.
