I don’t have any pictures of an easy breakfast with cute Easter jammies this year.  Our church moved their first service from 8:30 to 7:30 for Easter so we were all pretty rushed to get out the door on time.  But the service was good – I always love the songs we sing on Easter.  And then we came back home for Peyton to open her Easter basket (bath toys, bubbles, summer clothes, and 1 piece of chocolate) and do a quick Easter egg hunt before Aunt Amanda needed to get to the airport.

Progress Report | Peyton’s Big Girl Room

We moved Peyton out of the nursery at the end of March.  She’s now in what was the guest room but is now her big girl room!  It’s bigger than the nursery – more room for her toys and playing! – and it’s farther away from our room – which makes no difference, really, because I think our walls are made of paper.

I was completely against the idea of moving Peyton at first.  We decorated that room for her and I didn’t want to take it away from her.  But the idea of having a baby in a bigger room didn’t make sense.  So I agreed it would be best to move her.  I was nervous she wouldn’t transition well (I was dreading multiple middle of the night wake ups) but she didn’t have a single problem.

2017 – Project 52

A few of my favorite pictures from my 2017 Project 52 (I started it as a 365 project [one picture a day] but I’ve already missed some days and instead feeling guilty I just switched to a Project 52 [one picture every week]) – I just sent January and February to be printed so I’ll be sticking them in my album soon!

Family Pictures | October 2016

We’ve made it a tradition to do our family pictures the weekend of Halloween.  Last year’s pictures were taken ON Halloween and this year it was a few days before.  We found a cute little area at a local park with several different background options.  I’m ‘always worried we’ll never get good ones and this year it was tough getting Peyton to smile because she would obviously rather be running around and exploring.  But we knew going in to expect that and we made the best of it!

I have too many favorites but here are a few  10,000 of my most favorite!
