Everyone is growing up!
Peyton is learning so much... one example...
I also had to lower the crib mattress, again... she's pulling herself up on everything!I have been trying so hard to get her to enjoy solid foods a bit more. I took the oral syringe for a new use, she liked to suck her food off the spoon and would get very frustrated, so I employed the syringe, she loves to take her flouride, and she liked it much better. Last night, we used the spoon, she ate carrots, and loved them!
She has also discovered the mirror. She thinks that new baby is so hilarious, and kinda cute... she gives herself kisses.Lynn is just continuing on in all of her kindergarten awesomeness. She got to be the teacher's helper yesterday and told me, "I just couldn't get that smile to get off my face! I was so excited to help!" Her work is going much better, now that she doesn't erase (or un-rase as Lynn would say...) all of it, even when her teacher says it is great.
On our walk home from school yesterday, we had a little discussion on school buses. We were watching our neighbor park hers. Lynn was saying how we have many school buses that drive through our neighborhood, but the pioneers didn't have them, and there aren't any school buses in heaven. I asked her how she knew that. Her answer: "Because in the pictures of Heaven, there aren't any school buses. On the pioneer show that comes on after PBS kids ("Little House on the Prairie"), they have to walk 'cause there aren't any buses. Sometimes they rode in wagons, though, huh?" She's so dang smart, and cute...
On that same day, while Ash and Pey and I were walking to get Lynn, Ashley was making me laugh, as usual, and I just said, "Oh, Ash... I love you! You are so funny and so cute. You make me laugh."
Her reply, "I know." I think I am raising a very confident daughter... a headstrong one too.
