|Peyton 7 months old!|
7. It is hard being 7 hours away from family in all directions - from KY, to MS, to FL. Those of you that has family close by to help, count yourself lucky! I wish grandparents could help baby-sit Peyton & watch him grow on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Thank goodness for modern technology - cell phones with pictures & Skype!
6. Social Events Change - From dinners at home with friends to going out with friends. This weekend we hosted a wedding shower for our dear friends, Lindsay & Drew. Whew - I was exhausted after it all. Babies are a lot of work to take on a errand & especially to a wedding shower that your co-hosting. We had a BLAST, but our social lives are just very different. Thank you to our friends for including Peyton in their wedding festivities!

2. Exercise-Saucer- This is Peyton's new favorite toy (Thank you Nana & Papa Rusty)! I would recommend this toy for any new mother - as babies grow out of bouncy seats & swings, this is the perfect toy! I am able to get a few things done while Peyton plays!
1. The words of ring true - "I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for you, I always pray with joy." Philippians 1:3-4 Joy has been redefined in my life by Peyton. Children bring true joy to a parents life. As I lay my head down at night, I go to bed thanking God for Peyton.
May you have a blessed evening! Love Susan
