We had a wonderful Christmas this year.
We went to Grandma and Grandpa's (Donna and Dad) on Christmas eve to celebrate.
Peyton had a great time seeing her Aunt, Uncle, Great Aunt, Great Uncle and cousins.
Then, Christmas morning we celebrated with Dad, Donna, Dave and Laura at our house.
Peyton got spoiled and loved opening her gifts. It was fun to see her so excited, even though I think it was more for the wrapping paper than some of the gifts.
Next Nana, Papa and Aunt Gigi came over to spend the day. Peyton got a new wagon, a tent and tons of clothes and toys. She loved sitting and riding around in her wagon and crawling in her tent.

Mike and I took Peyton to the Kohl Children's Museum on Friday. I think she is still a bit young to really enjoy all of it, but she had a great time anyways. She loved looking at all of the kids and seeing the the exhibits. The water exhibit was her favorite. I am happy that it's so close because I think it'll be a great place to go during the long Winter months.

Peyton decided she wanted to be pantless last night for a while before pj time. Mike and I noticed that for some reason, the onesie she had on under her shirt (which had fit perfectly this morning) had turned into a monster. Note the second picture where it looks like she has a pair of white shorts on. That's her onesie. She looked like a little old grandpa.

We took our little munchkin out in the snow yesterday afternoon. She had a blast! Mike and I were just cracking up seeing her in her little snow suit.

Peyton loves the snow.
Mike showed it to her on our balcony the other day. She took a handful and shoved it in her mouth and then wanted more.
So as you can imagine, she now throws a temper tantrum when she goes by the sliding glass door and we won't let her reach out to eat the snow.
We'll take her out to play in it soon and I'll get some pictures.

Peyton is loving the Christmas Tree. Here she is when we first turned the lights on. She's wearing her little Christmas Dress because we had gone to see Santa before.
Um, that was not such a success. She loves pictures of Santa and statues of Santa and cartoons of Santa... um, the real Santa= tears and screaming!!
Oh Well, maybe next year.
So anyways, she loves to point at the tree and say "that" over and over again. She hasn't pulled on it too much yet, thankfully, but there are weeks to go so I'll keep my fingers crossed.
Here she is checking out the angel. We had put it up after she went to bed the night before but she noticed it right away in the morning and kept pointing to it so Daddy held her up to see it. She giggled at it and waved.
And here is our little monkey sitting in her toy bin in front of the tree. She had tried to climb into it to reach up to some ornaments and I guess decided that she would just have a seat and play from there.

I know I have totally been slacking on the belly pictures. I just think the novelty wore off for me after the first pregnancy.

IT'S A BOY!!!
We had our ultrasound today. I've been excited all week for it. The tech knew we wanted to know.
She was taking measurements and moving around and she started laughing.
"Do you know what that is?", she asked.
It was pretty obvious.
Right in between the legs was an obvious little thing.
Mike would like to tell everyone that it looks like a 3rd leg. Either way, we are looking forward to meeting our son in March.

Peyton took her first steps last night. I'll get video as soon as I can. She took 2 steps from me to Mike and then 3 steps from Mike back to me. Since then she gets all giggly when we try to get her to do it.
My little girl is growing up! Now she'll really be into everything she can get her hands on.

Peyton loves the playground. We don't go as often as I'd like, but we headed there the other day. Peyton loves the slide, and so does Bailey. He went down right before I made this video, but I couldn't get him to go again. Maybe next time.

Kiki and John were in town this weekend for our cousin's wedding and she brought me the photos she took of Peyton for her 1 year.
I LOVE THEM! Thank you Kiki.
*side note: I know some people want to know if we are finding out what we are having. We find out a week from Thursday. It was supposed to be this week but they moved it back a week. I'll be 22 weeks pregnant when I find out- ugggghh that's a long time to wait!
