Peyton and Parker Update

I haven't posted an update on our boys lately.  And I need to do it before I forget and they move onto the next stage in their life.  This is mainly for me to have record of later on.  They are growing up so fast, I can't believe it!

First....Peyton...3 Years and 3 months old

Look at that face, doesn't it look like he's up to something?  Well that's because he probably was.  Here are a few things about Peyton....

-He thinks life is a p-a-r-t-y ALL the time, the more the merrier.
-Talks non stop (wonder who he gets that from...hmmm.)
-He is a helper, especially in the kitchen.
-Loves Veggie Tales.
-Loves to cook. The only consistant thing that he wanted Santa to bring him was a "boy kitchen."  (You know we can't have any pink around here!)
-Learning his letters.
-Looks out for Parker.
-Obsessed with the color yellow (lellow).  However, red is slowly starting to be asked for on occasion.  Everyday he begs to wear a 'lellow' shirt or a football jersey.  If you see him without either on, then you know there was probably a battle at our house that morning.  However, his first choice is always PJ's and he still hasn't given up wanting to wear those out after many times being turned down.
-Of course he loves to play football and tackle.
-And last but not least...he LOVES everything to be organized, especially his football guys...(Josh's starting line up players from when he was little.)  He plays with these for hours at a time and I find these guys lined up everywhere in our house!  He has about 20-30 of them.  He pretends he is the coach.  He has even given some names, his favorite are Rod and Dorman.  And if you knock one of his players down and don't put it back exactly the way it was, he's not a happy camper.

Parker Thomas....1 year and 5 months.

-He is our sensitive child.
-Always has a smile on his face.
-The charmer, the flirt.
-Loves to hug and blow kisses to everyone.
-Laid back.
-Eats anything you'll give him at anytime.
-Chooses to run more than walk.
-Loves wagon rides.
-Loves to drive his John Deer tractor that Santa brought him around the house.
-Loves buttons of any kind, especially remotes, phones and keyboards.
-Tries to figure out how everything works, constantly exploring every little thing.
-Loves to sleep!  (I prayed hard on this one when I was prego with him.  I didn't know to do that with my first one-ha.)  Parker normally sleeps 12-14 hours at night and 2-3 hours in the afternoon.
-He loves his brother and already looks up to him so much.
Words he can now say: (a few are not very clear but we can understand him)
Daddy, Momma, Bubba, Nana (my Mom), Poppy (Josh's Dad), hi, bye, more, cracker, cookie, doggie, night-night, ball, football, no, and cheese. 

Josh and I are having so much fun with these little guys.  God has blessed us more than we could have ever imagined.

I check in on your blog every now and then and love to see pics of your boys! They are too adorable! It's so funny to listen to your descriptions of them because they are so similar to our first two. Javan used to line up his Little People everywhere. And our second, Joshua is our sensitive sleeper! Jared is our huge yellow fan! For him it's yellow or The Wiggles or you have a fight on your hands. Thankfully we've outgrown that for the most part. Treasure this time with them because it goes so fast and it's absolutely the best!!!
Take care! Pam Jowers

Kate, they are both so big and doing so much! That is a great idea recording their life stages! I need to start doing that. I'm dying to know how you made your heading? I'm a new blogger and I haven't figured out all the tricks of the trade! Let me know when you get a chance.
