My ill-fated photoshoot...

This past week I attempted some 3 year portraits for Peyton. I bought an outfit, collected some props, and recruited a friend to help (thanks Kayla!). Peyton did alright (although he kept messing with the little battery packs on the firefly jars) but I definitely think I'll be trying these again.

Peyton is still doing well with the "pee" part of potty training but he's been regressing with the pooping part. I had to take his bus away and tell him that he won't get it back until he poops in the potty. He's been intentionally lying about when he needs to go. Sigh....

Peyton & his prize...

This is the "prize" we bought for Peyton for pooping on the potty!  Woo hoo!  We bought it before he ever overcame his "poop-stacle" and put it on a shelf so he could see it (to try to motivate him to stop having accidents).  Anywho, you can see that he clearly loves his bus!

Here are some peeks into our life from the past month or so...


Photo Bomb!!

We have had a great time visiting with all of the family trickling in and out of our home the past couple of months (I'll try to compile some pictures of family visiting). The heat here has been pretty unbearable (it has been mid 90's and higher for about a month now). The past week or so has seen temperatures of over 100 almost every day! It is hard trying to wrangle two kids in this heat! Peyton wants to play outside all of the time but it is too hot for Finley to be out there for very long.

Peyton has been doing really well with potty training!  We don't really have pee accidents anymore and he has pooped in the potty 3 times now!  Woo hoo!  I feel like we are really making progress!

Finley has been sleeping better at night - 5 and 6 hour stretches pretty routinely, but he still won't sleep in his crib.  He is pretty close to being too big to fit in his swing (his preferred place to sleep).  I'm trying to stick him in his crib for at least a little bit every day.  He gets himself so worked up that he starts choking and then he throws up all over me when I pick him up.  Sigh.  Someday he will actually sleep in that nursery!
