Payzlee turned the big ONE!

It is so hard to believe that Payzlee turned one almost a month ago.  Her first birthday was March 4.  To celebrate we had an Uno Party.  I just love Pinterest and sometimes go a little over board, but oh well.  We had her a party the weekend after her birthday, and she had a great time.  But any excuse for her to get to eat a whole lot of food is always a good time for sweet Payzlee.
 Loving on Auntie Dev
 Mommy and the birthday girl
 Since the weather decided to be cold, we had to do the party inside the garage!

 Payzlee and her sweet friend Lane

 Now we get to the good stuff.  Payzlee was more interested in eating her cake than everyone singing to her!
 And she loved that cake!
 Mommy & Daddy and the Birthday Girl (We forgot to ever get a family picture. Sorry Jaycee)
 She devoured that cake and I have no idea where she put it since she had already ate a big plate of Mexican Pile-on
 Jaycee had her fair share of cupcakes too
 Opening presents
 Hanging on to some more than others. Ha!
 Her very own baby doll
She was so excited about that baby doll.  Jaycee has a fit when she tries to play with hers and now she finally has her very own!  She hung on to that thing the whole night!

Payzlee at one year:
-Still crawls.  She could walk if she wanted to, but she just will not let go!
-Loves to give kisses and wave bye-bye
-Only thing she is attached to is her bumper pads.  I am not kidding.  She has to sleep with them.  She just has to have something to hug or bury her self under!
-Looks just like her Daddy especially when she sleeps (minus the beard!)
-Most definitely still a Momma's girl
-Can say several words.  "Momma, Daddy, Griengo, No-no, Jaycee (rarely), bok (book), Joe, Go, Bye-bye, night-night, bath, and yeah"  She'll probably talk before Jaycee or at least clearer!
-She loves remotes, bath, the toilet, and jumping on pillows, the couch, and bed, also loves to climb on anything and everything!
-Her and her sister fight quite a bit and it is not all Jaycee's fault.  Payzlee pesters her quite a bit!
-Still takes 2 naps a day when she can
-Loves the 4 wheeler or side by side
-Not a big fan of cows.  She likes them but likes them at a distance.  She does not want to touch one.  Complete opposite of her sister.
-She eats more than any thing I've ever seen and I cannot figure out where it goes.  I used to think Jaycee ate a lot, but Payzlee eats way more!
-Loves any food except a banana
-Wears size 12 month clothes, Size 3 shoe, and Size 3 Diaper
Payzlee is the sweetest, most stubborn, determined, hard headed, smart, and best little baby ever.  I am so sad that she is no longer my baby anymore!

It's Already a New Year

 Well I'm sure everyone saw our Christmas card or these pictures by now, but I needed to add these.  It is so hard to get a picture of these two together- both smiling, both sitting still, and both looking at the camera.  Maybe I am just way too picky.  But this is the best I could do for Christmas pictures.  I was pretty pleased.
 Jaycee hates doing anything that's not her idea, but I did manage to snap one picture of her.  
I love her eyes!
 And then there is sweet Payzlee.  
 She is such a doll.
I honestly cannot remember what all was going on with Payzlee at 9 months, but I will try.
-Finally got her first teeth right after 9 months old (the two bottom)
-Crawls all over the place like she has been, but no walking still
-Can say No no, go, Joe, Naw Naw (Nonni)
-Still wears 9 month clothes
-Still sleeps 12 hours at night
-Loves to eat!
-She just began to eat almost all table food instead of baby food
-Drinks like a pro out of a sippy cup

This is Payzlee at 10 months!  Love this girl!

She is a mess!
 At 10 months:
-Loves to get everything out of drawers (Mommy just loves that...not!)
-Obsessed with toilet paper
-Likes to pester her sister (Yes she is learning to fight back)
-By morning she has her pajamas half off almost every morning (I'm pretty sure she has been watching Jaycee change and run around naked way too much!)
-Very independent
-She is a dare devil (just what I need!)  She loves to be thrown on the bed, tossed in the air, held upside down, etc.)
-She now has 3 teeth total: Just one popped in on top on New Years Day.
-Favorite food: Asparagus, Green Beans but will eat anything and everything! She is a bottomless pit!
-Still wears 9 month clothes (My kids are so tiny!)
-Has about 3 random curls on her head (poor girl)
-Finally started baby talking quite a bit
-Has a high pitch squeal that she loves to do a lot!
-Loves to make kissing noises and smacks when she eats!

The weather this January has been either really cold, really windy, or gorgeous.  We have tried to soak up as many gorgeous days we can!  
 The girls like to slide together!
 Jaycee is so fun! She loves nothing more than playing outside!
 She needs a bigger slide, but then I might not like her trying out all her different ways to go down it!
 Jumpin!  She looks so old!
 Payzlee is not a big fan of the trampoline although you can't tell it here
 She LOVES to swing!
 Payzlee had enough swinging together
 Jaycee loves to kiss her and try to make her feel better!
Jaycee is such a mess, but I love it and I wouldn't have it any other way!  She is so into changing clothes right now.  She loves to dress up or wear Momma's clothes.  It is quite annoying, but at the same time impressive that she can dress and undress herself including shoes and usually they are on the right feet.  She is so smart!  She knows or can soon figure out how everything works.  She can do any puzzle.  She recognizes everything and everywhere.  She knows where everyone lives, knows where Leals is, or any McDonalds, and knows what everyone drives.  Don't worry if she is ever with someone else she'll be able to find her way to Nonni's or Rhy's and get some enchiladas on the way there!  I have to tell a story from the other day.  I was driving to Clovis,  We were sitting at a stop sign just outside of Clovis and Jaycee started yelling "it's Mane, It's Mane!", and I was like Jaycee what are you talking about?.  Sure enough I look up and see Jaimie drives a white tahoe (just like every other mom in Clovis) turning right in front of us.  Now how in the world did she recognize that?!?  It is just crazy things like that, that amaze me about her.  She wants to help with everything and can pretty much do it.  She loves to help me do everything!  She CAN (key word) clean, cook, do laundry, or organize cabinets or files (haha).  She really does do anything and for the most part is pretty good at long as it is her idea!  Yes she does stress me out to the max, but at the day's end I am so thankful and blessed for her just the way she is.  Although I do wish she was better at listening and doing anything that I want her to do other than anything that is all "her idea".

Snow (Not So Much) Fun

 So it is a winter wonderland here, and it is gorgeous.  No drifts, just a perfect pretty snow.  I was feeling awful yesterday as I saw everyone's post on facebook with their kids in the snow so I decided to get them bundled up and left them play this morning.  They do not have "ski clothes" as I call them so I just layered them.  We put on 3 pairs of socks, 3 pants, 3 shirts to make sure they didn't freeze.  Well all that took about 45 minutes to get done since they were just thrilled to put on that many clothes.  Jaycee was so excited to finally get to go outside that she just ran out the door.  Well she of course fell right into the snow because she did not know that it was snow and she couldn't exactly run in it.  Well she lost her mittens and it just made her mad that she fell.  So needless to say it was downhill from there.
I just had to sit Payzlee down in the snow for her to experience this
Payzlee was quite happy
 Such a sweetie
 Then Payzlee kind of fell over, but she wasn't completely mad.
 Then she face planted and she was irate!
Needless to say we went right back inside!
 Payzlee was quite happy to eat the snow off the floor in the house though!

 Jaycee getting all those layers off!
On a good note, since it was such a nice calm snow, all the cattle stayed home and it is not just awful like usual for Justin.  I can't even remember the last time it snowed this pretty without the wind!  We are definitely thankful for that!

A Month Behind from Here on Out...

I am just going to be a month behind from here on out I suppose.  Sorry, better late than never.  For Halloween Jaycee was a Scarecrow. 
Payzlee was Ghost
Best family picture we can get these days
 Daddy and his ghost

 It had been really pretty until this week so Jaycee has been riding a few weeks ago
 And Payzlee got to go riding for the first time and LOVED it!
 Payzlee turned 8 months this month.  Here are a few of her pictures.
She gets so excited!

 What she does quite often.  Get so tickled!
At 8 months:
-Finally sits!  Just started sitting on her own a few weeks ago!  I know, ridiculous.  It was like she didn't think her body could bend that way.  And she still sits really awkward.
-Still no teeth
-Loves to just cruise around the house.  Army crawling it up.
-She is quite petite like Jaycee was.  She can't gain wait if she wanted.  She. Never. Stops.  She will not cuddle with you.  She does not like you to hold her for longer than 1 minute.  She just wants to be on the move and trying to do everything Jaycee does.
-She pulls up to her knees constantly and pulls up to her feet some.  We have even caught her trying to stand in the middle of the floor several times, but she won't walk along anything she pulls up on.  I can't figure this kid out.  Everything is backwards.
-Wears 9 months clothes still.
