I'm a big kid now!

All of our sudden our little baby is on the verge of toddlerhood! Just when Pete and I were saying how much older Peyton is acting every day, her daycare teacher tells us she's the next one to move up classes into the TODDLER room- at 15 months- next month! Visions of Kylie sleeping on a cot instead of in a crib, no more bottles, etc came flashing before my eyes!

These days Peyton is at the Miss Independent stage (again!) except for those times when something that she "needs" is just a bit out of her reach or when she wants to be picked up for some hugs and kisses :)! She is really learning her sounds and forming more and more words every day like monkey (and what sound they make: ooo-ooo-ahh-ahh!) and thank you (dat tu).

Here are some action shots I captured tonight- just days after Peyton's 14 month birthday. Perfectly content (and messy!) feeding herself and extremely pleased that she was able to make it up on "the big chair" by herself for the first time ever!

We love you sweetie! We're amazed at all you are becoming so quickly before our eyes. But slow down a little will ya? All of a sudden you're leaving us behind in your dust to toddlerhood :)!

Up she goes...

Ta da! (mohawk compliments of Mommy taking her rubberband out just moments before)

Food tastes better when you can really get a feel for what you're eating!
