Peyton's first food

Yesterday I was eating a peach with Peyton in my lap. The next thing I know she is grabbing my hands and shoving the peach in her mouth. She started sucking on it and would not stop. She loved it. I could barely free my hands to get a bite. Eventually I was able to finish it and then she started to cry. She was very upset so we decides to move on to a plum. She loved that too.I have a feeling when I do start solids she is going to have a ball.

Peyton's 4 month check

On Thursday we took Peyton to the doctor for her 4 month check-up. She now weighs a whopping 13lbs.10.6oz. and measures 24in. long. She is such a peanut. That puts her in the 45th percentile. It seems so crazy to me that she is so tiny because Aidan was so big. He was always in the 90's for his percentiles. It's like they are on total opposite sides of the spectrum. They are different in so many other ways as well. One of the major ways is that Peyton likes to sleep. Aidan never did. To this day at the age of 2 he rarely sleeps through the night. For Peyton it is rare if she doesn't sleep through the night. Aidan has light hair and bright blue eyes while Peyton has dark hair and dark eyes. (I still can't figure out exactly what color they are) I'm sure there will many more differences I will notice as she grows. I am looking forward to seeing her change and grow as I did with Aidan.

Capitol city market

Last night we went to a capitol city market. Every Friday night they have outside music. There is always a lot of kids and Aidan loves running around and playing with them.

This Friday one of the local wine stores had a children's art show. Aidan made a piece for the exhibit which he was really proud of. He was able to spot his drawing right away amongst all the other pictures. Here it is:

Everyone is just hanging out while the kids play in the background
Here is Aidan trying to sneak his way in with the girls
Running around playing
Aidan always has a good time at this event. Last night was no exception.

My little helper

Aidan likes to help me out during the day by keeping Peyton occupied. It's really nice that he loves her so much and likes to do things with her.

Here is is sharing his two water cups with her.

He loves it when I put her in the bumbo seat. She is sitting up right next to him and it is easy for him to give her toys to play with.
He also love to read her some of his favorite books.
I really love watching the two of them interacting. I can tell they already love each other.
