{A Fun Day}

A couple months ago, we had new neighbors move into the apartment directly beneath us...and to our wonderful surprise, they had two little kids very close in age to our own. I've become quite good friends with Becky and Alexa LOVES her new little friend, Johnny! They also have a little girl, Katelyn, who is a few months older than Payton. So today, we took Becky and her kiddos to the zoo. Alexa and Johnny had a blast. She's always asking if Johnny is outside and if she can play with him. What fun it is to have great neighbors!!
And this is how Payton enjoyed our day at the zoo!!

Payton: 5 Months Old!!

Our sweet Payton is 5 months old. With each passing month, I just can't believe how quickly the time goes. She's now trying to sit on her own. She laughs and talks ALL the time. She loves to watch her big sister. She's so aware of everything that is going on around her and she LOVES to smile at her daddy!! She's starting to sleep better which is wonderful for everyone and she really is a very happy baby.
Alexa didn't want to miss out on the photo op! She's very adamant about not being left out when it comes to her sister! Sorry about the open mouth shot, I tried getting her to smile...but she just wanted everyone to see her snack instead!! :-) Oh and you can see how her black eye got worse! Poor thing, it really did look nasty for a few days.

Hahahaha....I just love Payton's hair in the above picture! She'd had a little piggy tail in earlier in the day which resulted in this! The hair, combined with the cheeks....oh I love it!
Both the girls get some crazy bedhead. Alexa refuses to have anything done to her hair after nap time and so it's usually pretty crazy the rest of the day! I wonder if Payton's hair will lighten up like Alexa's since Alexa started out at least as dark as Payton's hair is in this picture???!!!

Accident Prone??

So today Alexa got her first major black eye (at least I THINK it's her first). She was playing with a friend and got bumped right next to her eye resulting in an immediate black eye. It doesn't look so bad in this picture but it definitely got worse (since I'm backdating this post and actually writing it from the future.....scary, I know!!!). But this incident started off a chain of accidents for our little lady. It seemed like every time she turned around, she was bumping into something or falling and scraping a knee.
Hopefully the stars will realign and soon move onto some other poor unfortunate soul!!
