Little man Peyt's quick update

Peyton went in for his one year check today. Other than his weight he is a healthy little boy and three weeks ahead of where he should be developmentally.
Stats:

17lbs 5.5 ozs (up 2 ozs from Feb., not so great, but at least he didn't go down :o)
29 in up 1/2 in since Feb.
47 cm Head Circumfrence

I will be making an appointment with Dr. Wisner (a peditrician with the Madrona Medical Group) and will update when I have learned more.

Fun in the Sun

Peyton loves his bath so I didn't have any doubts that he would love a pool. He might like to go in once the water has warmed up a bit though. He did enjoy just sittin on the edge and splashing. This is how he spent most of his birthday.

The new pool was a hit. The boys liked the slide. Can't wait till the water warms up so Peyton can enjoy it a little bit more.

Happy Birthday Little Man


Peyton,


It is hard to believe that you entered or lives exactly one year ago today. You have grown so much and have been such a blessed edition to this family. Your smile and your laugh are beautiful and we love you very much. I am thankful that God chose us as your parents. Thank you so much for being you and I can't wait to share even more birthdays with you.
Love you bunches
Mommy and Daddy
this picture is Peyton. He has always been a very calm and content baby. No fussiness going on here.

Kaiden


video



I decided to have a little fun with a new software program on my computer. It isn't much and hopefully I will figure out how to do so much more with it all. Hope you enjoy watching Kaiden's first visit with his big sis and Auntie.

He wants to tell you a story

Michael wanted let you all know what you can do.

And the game winner was....

Me, the Auntie, of course.
My prize for being the first one to correctly guess this little guys name,
being the first one to hold him after his big sis got to, of course.
Auntie with the niece and nephew I love you two


Here's Kai

As you all read earlier Baby Kai made his arrival and was actually 8lbs 5oz. Here are some pics from Big Sis's first visit with HER (she kept crying for my baby) Kai (or Peyt as she likes to call him ;O) Kai does not like the flash from the camera, as you can see. We also interrupted his meal. Sorry little man.
Proud mama with her two beautiful children.
Proud Parents and first family photo op.
Proud big sis with HER baby

Isa sure lovers HER baby. All she wanted to do was hold him. She would scream mine, mine, mine (kind of reminded me of the seagulls from Nemo)
Welcome to the world baby Kai, your cousins can't wait to meet you. They really enjoyed looking at your pictures and are having fun playing with your sis. See you soon.
Love Auntie
My niece and nephew are just the cutest.

Big Sister



He came out. Yesterday at 6:11 pm my niece became a big sister. Kaiden Kevin (Kai) weighed in at 8lbs 4 oz and 21 3/4 in long. Here is the new big sister eagerly awaiting Auntie to take her to the baby, more importantly the mama.

The time has come and we have added another child to the family. At least for next couple of days. Cousin Isa is spending time with us while her mama tries to get that baby out of her belly. She has been so good. Eating everything I give her, sleeping until 7 am. Her mama told me she gets up at 5:30, I was dreading it. Here are the cousins playing together last night.

I may have all boys, but I can still manage to get this little ones hair done in the morning. And with some luck and lots of accessories, I managed to get it into a ponytail. Not so easy on this fine hair that she has.

Sunny Day





We have had the two most beautiful days around here. Sunshine is bright and not a raindrop coming down on us. What better to do on a beautiful day then to run around in the sprinkler. That is exactly what the boys got to do. It took a little bit but they finally got into it. Casey stayed out longer then Michael and he was having a blast. Can't wait till we set up the new pool that we got for them. Not to much longer and we will be able to. However, the weatherman is calling for rain next week. I think the boys and I will be needing to venture out to one of the waterparks if this sunshine continues. Daddy is working nights this weekend so I am going to get the boys off to bed early and enjoy a movie. Gotta love the Pay Per View. Never used it before. Hopefully we will be able to use it again to get Alvin and the Chipmunks. It beats buying it and driving into town to rent it. Especially with what gas prices are at these days.

Talking with Friends

Casey talking to Esther.
Peyton just enjoying the sunshine
Michael talking to Karis.
I took these pictures today while the boys were talking with some friends that moved away about seven months ago. Don't worry Esther, the dogs are still alive and I will post some pictures of them next week just so that you can see that. I love the questions that four year old ask. Esther asked Casey about the dogs. She just wanted to make sure they were still alive. We miss you girls. Have a great weekend.

Update on Peyt and a fun thing about Michael

Peyt had an appointment at the WIC clinic on Friday. He weighed in at 16 lbs 14.5 oz and 28 in long. He is the runt of the family. Not even on the chart for his weight (lets remember that he will be one in 2 weeks) and 8th percentile for his height. I am used to having huge boys. Michael and Casey were both in the 95th percentile until about 18 months of age. He had lost about 6 oz since his last WIC appointment. I will be taking him in for his 1year check on May 26 and will be going for lab work probably on the Monday before the appointment to see if we can figure out what is going on. On the fun side, Michael has become the little singer in the family. I love driving down the road and hearing him belt out the lyrics to Beautiful one I love, Beautiful one I adore and Amazing Grace. He is such a cutie. I just wish that I could catch it on camera one of these times. Not sure that would be very safe driving though. :o)

Two Cute to pass up

The boys and I found two really cute outfits at Costco today that we could just not pass up. The first is for baby Kai, who has a nautical theme going on, it was picked by Michael and Casey who are into pirates. The second is for Peyton. I thought you would like this one Mom.

To Casey

Casey is our outgoing child. For those of you that know him you would not be surprised if he was the first do a new activity or do something wild and crazy. He is the first one to jump in and help Daddy do "hard work" as the boys like to call it. Even in the pouring down rain. We love his adventurous spirit. He is our Super Cas. Hopefully I will be able to get a picture or a video of him in action soon. Casey spent the weekend helping dad do some clean-up around the apartments. Isn't he adorable in his rain gear??


This is what happens when we let Casey dress himself. He is such a goof ball.
