I couldn't help but to adapt one of my grade school cheerleading chants to convey my love of laundry today.
For some reason we just can't seem to get into the habit of doing a load or 2 every night. Therefore, once the weekend arrives we seem to spend 75% of the time doing, folding and putting away laundry. I mean I know we have 2 kids now and all, but you would think we were housing a small army if you saw the volume of laundry we have on a weekly basis!
Anyway, thanks for listening. Now it's off to fold more laundry :)!
So I think I've mentioned just a few times how alert and active Peyton is. That being said, the Dr. said she should absolutely sleep through the night no problem at this point (except for the small fact she is constantly hungry). He couldn't believe how she didn't stop moving for a second for the 10 minutes he was seeing her at her 4 month check up. Between rolling over and over and "shimmying" her way across the exam table and back, he couldn't believe his eyes! She really is on the verge of crawling already!
We're not quite sure where her never ending supply of energy comes from. Daddy was really wondering that last night. Here's a play by play by Pete of how he spent Saturday night/EARLY Sunday morning with his little angel!
10:30pm- Peyton drinks what should be her "last" bottle of the day
11:00pm- Peyton falls fast asleep
11:15pm- Peyton is wide awake
12:00am- Peyton goes back to sleep after hanging out with Daddy for 45 minutes
12:00-3:00am- Daddy puts pacifier in 20+ times to try to keep Peyton asleep while he's trying to get some laundry folded as it is engulfing our home (another post to follow on that one)
3:00am- Peyton is wide awake again; Daddy feeds her another bottle
4:00am- Peyton drifts off into a semi-state of sleep but again needs the pacifier every 15 minutes
6:00am- Unfortunately nature strikes and Daddy smells a huge present waiting for him leaving Peyton wide awake for the day after her diaper was changed
How quickly the sun goes down and comes right back up when you have a newborn in the house!
(Should I feel guilty for getting 10 hours of sleep while all of this was going on? Nah- because it's my turn to more than likely go through the same thing tonight!)
In addition to all of her bottles, we have started Peyton on a serious regimen of rice cereal and stage 1 fruits and veggies twice a day. She seems to enjoy the increase in variety of food but it still doesn't seem to be doing the trick as far as making her belly fuller. We'll keep trying- wish us luck AND sweet dreams!

- Weight: 14 lbs, 6 ozs (compared to 11 lbs 14 ozs in Jan, still 75th percentile for weight)
- Head: 16 1/4" (compared to 16" in Jan)
- Height: 26 3/4" (compared to 24 3/4" in Jan, off the charts for the 4th month in a row! Might we have a WNBA potential on our hands?)

The 6th grade science teacher, Mrs. Parks, asked her class, 'Which human body part increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?'
No one answered until little Mary stood up, angry, and said, 'You should not be asking 6th graders a question like that! I'm going to tell my parents, and they will go and tell the principal, who will then fire you!'
With a sneer on her face, she then sat back down.
Mrs. Parks ignored her and asked the question again, 'Which body part increases to 10 times its size when stimulated?'
Little Mary's mouth fell open; then she said to those around her, 'Boy, is she gonna get in big trouble!' The teacher continued to ignore her and said to the class,' Anybody?'
Finally, Billy stood up, looked around nervously, and said, 'The body part that increases 10 times its size when stimulated is the pupil of the eye.'
Mrs. Parks said, 'Very good, Billy,' then turned to Mary and continued, 'As for you, young lady, I have three things to say
(1) you have a dirty mind,
(2) you didn't read your homework, and
(3) one day, when you're older, you are going to be very, very disappointed.'

Here's hoping this post sends a little sunshine your way today!
Now normally I'm not one to really talk about the weather in conversation, but c'mon the SUN is out today!!!! I can't help but think of the song "It's a Sunshine Day" by The Brady Bunch. You know the one- "I think I'll go for a walk outside now..."- the cheesy melody and vision of the 6 Brady kids doing their groovy dance moves can't help but bring a smile to anyone's face!
