Family Life, parenting


so i’m still “recovering” from this cold/cough or whatever miserable thing it is. I feel fine in the middle of the day, but mornings and evenings are rough. The cough and the sore throat are killer. swallowing is a chore, which is sad because I love to eat. I guess that could mean its a good thing for my waist line, or so you would think! I’ve eaten tons of soup and had countless cups of hot tea. I’ve been trying hard to take care of Payton while also trying to not “share” my germs. Thats so hard! I didn’t realize how much I love to kiss her little face until I try not to!

Speaking of Payton, she is nearing the 8 month mark! Time flies doesn’t it? She has been developing quite a bit lately. She loves to clap her little hands. She tries to mock the noises we make and even some of the words we say. Her most recent work is “yes”. She has been saying “dada” for awhile now. She tries hard to say Delilah (thats our cocker spaniel) but it usually comes out “DUH”. No sign of “mama” just yet, but i’m working on it. She has been on the verge of crawling for a few weeks now… but just hasn’t had the motivation to do it. I’m ok with her not starting to crawl just yet, I kinda like the peace of knowing she will say where I put her… but I know it won’t last for much longer! Speaking of longer… she’s actually starting to get some hair (ok… it might just be some “fuzz”) but its better than bald!

Heres a few pictures we took today. We always have fun, even when I don’t feel good!
