Around the House with Peyton

Here are some of my favorite pics of Peyton around the house doing what he does best! He is crawling and pulling up and climbing on everything, he seems to be more monkey than little boy:) I spend most of my time making sure he is not getting into too much trouble as he explores the house, as I type this he is climbing up on the couch and would give anything at this moment if he could get to the computer. Nothing is safe anymore!
First play date with his friend Jerzi. We took this right before we left and it was past nap time for both of them, we should have taken one at the beginning so they looked happy. We really did have a great time but I love that in order to take the pic I had to give Peyt the camera case to keep him happy and Kenzie gave Jerzi the lens cap. Peyton's face is great, he looks thrilled doesn't he...really he had fun:)
Peyton showing his, "I am so pleased with myself" smile after successfully pulling himself up on the couch.
Peyton turned the big 9 MONTHS this week! I can't believe how quickly he is growing up. Sometimes it makes me so sad and I have to give him extra hugs and kisses and let him fall asleep on my shoulder because I know there will come a day that he won't do that anymore.
I tried to get some action shots of some of his new tricks. Some of the things I want to remember he can do now are, he is crawling everywhere, pulling up on the couch or anything he can reach, he's starting to walk along things, he says Momma (mostly when he is sad or winey but still he says it), he likes to help hold the spoon during meals, and most of all he has a very friendly personality and loves to be around people.
But what Peyton does best is pose for for pictures. I was trying to take a picture of crawling but every time he saw the camera he would sit down and flash the smile, he just cracks me up:)
Peyton and Shaye's newest favorite game! His first tent and he loves it!

I love seeing this face coming to get me!
After playing so hard, he sleeps hard. His latest thing is pulling his legs under him and sleeping with his little bum in the air, too cute.
Sometimes I just have to sneak in and look at his sweet face. I just want him to stay little forever...

A Good Day Fishing

We have had a few good evenings spent out enjoying the outdoors and a little fishing. Lucky for us Peyton really loves going on little adventures to the outdoors, he is taking right after his dad already:) Last week we went up to Panguitch Lake and all the fishermen had great success catching lots of fish!
Here's everyone with there catches. If you look you can see that Shaye is a little dirty. Silly guy, that fish he is holding managed to squirm out of his hands and went flip flopping in the air. The best part was watching Shaye try to catch the slipper guy. The rest of the day he kept saying, why was I trying to catch that stupid fish? He didn't catch it but he did get blood all over his pants:) It still was a good day!
Peyt and Momma enjoying the pretty view of the lake. It was a little windy from time to time so Peyt also had fun climbing all over the back seat of the truck. I'd say he looks like a cute little fisherman in his hat:)
Family close up
This was the pretty sky that we enjoyed on our drive home, the picture doesn't even do it justice. It looked like there was fire in the sky.
Off on another adventure. peyton is always happy if I let him play with his favorite toy, aka the camera case:) This can mean endless entertainment and joy for him.
I love this picture. It is just so funny to me. Peyton loves having his picture taken and is always happy to flash his smile. I took this of us in the truck and just said Peyton smile and he gives me this fine cheeser, just love this kid.
Family photo at Kolob Reservoir. It was so pretty up there, we went up with a few friends for a nice family night and enjoyed a nice fire. Roasted some hotdogs, enjoyed some good treats. Shaye didn't want me to even mention that they were fishing cause it wasn't successful in that category:) But it was really nice, (minus the bugs) all in all we enjoyed the night!
