Peyton, Peyton, Peyton....

Peyton Karren is a rowdy little guy. And when he gets with his friends they sometimes get out of control. The other day we had Tyson Smyth come over and play, and those little 2 yr. olds really know how to scream. And if there is one thing i hate it's screaming. I don't know how many times i asked them to stop but it was enough.
We finally decided to take the kids to Mc Donald's to play. It didn't matter how loud they were there they just blended in with all the other kids.
Peyton and Tyson play so good together, we sure are going to miss him! The Smyth family moved back to Calgary far far away from us.
I love this picture. Peyton has hiding and didn't know i could see him.

sitting and teething...

Our little Brody is learning how to sit. I can't believe he is already 5 1/2 months old. He can only sit for a moment but thinks he is pretty smart when we all cheer for him. He is a happy little guy with a big smile, he has definitely brought a new kind of joy into our home. Most of the time Peyton could care less if he's around but if someone has Brody laughing Peyton wants to join into the fun.

Brody has turned into a little drooler these days, at any given point in the day his shirt is usually drenched or the floor around him is. But all the drooling has paid off he got his 2nd tooth yesterday....ya! He has been chomping on anything he can grab and it's usually my finger. He is sleeping alot better too, i was getting really tired of the 3am feeding. We have pushed it up to 5am or 6am most days. I think we both needed that extra 2 hours.

I hate packing...

I can't believe it has been almost 4 years since we moved to Windsor Ontario. It has really truly gone by so fast. Since we have moved here we have had 2 little boys, finished dental school and made some really great friends. It has been an awesome adventure. But I'm glad it's almost over. It seems like i have been packing forever, every time i turn around there is more stuff to pack. I can't believe we have this much crap.
I am getting our stuff shipped to AZ in the second week of May. Now Brett graduated May19th and his parents are coming too, so we will all be camping out for a couple weeks. Wish me luck!

Spring has finally sprung.....

We finally got outside this weekend, it has been 80 degrees the past 2 days and my kids our loving it. I of course got a nice sunburn but that's to be expected, even with spf 40 on. Peyton is going to love being back in Alberta where he can play all day outside. What a treat for him.

I was so surprised how well Brody did outside for most of the day. He is a little trooper. He would fall asleep in his stroller when he got tired and he was quite content playing with his feet and blanket. I love this happy little baby.

Peyton loves playing outside. He doesn't even care how dirty he gets (and he usually hates getting his hands dirty). So needless to say we have had baths 3 nights in a row. And i'm sure there are more to come....

So i think i'm ready for Brody to get in all his teeth in. He has been up so many times the past couple of nights i feel like he's a newborn again. What happened to my good sleeping baby? He has literally turned into a monster on us. I'm starting to think that 2 is good number.

I am slowly going crazy 123456 switch....

It has been one of those days. I'm behind on laundry, Brody is teething and is waking up from his naps every 10 mins. and Peyton wants my attention constantly. I love my kids but i was sure glad to see Brett walk through that door to give me 5 mins. to fold my awaiting clean clothes. I think the kids and i were both excited when it was bed time.
