What a great week we have had!

I have been off all week for the Thanksgiving Holiday and have loved being able to spend every minute with my Peyton. We have had a great time. Monday we had to go to Dallas to see our favorite doctor. Peyton did great, he even was taken off of one of his breathing treatments unless it is necessary. On Tuesday Peyton helped me clean up around the house and then he helped his daddy with the new computer desk. He like to be a helper!

Peyton has enjoyed playing in the sun room this week also. As he gets bigger he likes the dogs more. It is so fun to watch him play with Bear and Sadie. He laughs so hard when he plays with them.

Thanksgiving Day was a very busy day for us. My side of the family came over and we cooked and had Thanksgiving lunch. We all got stuffed! My parents and grandmother both came. My aunt, uncle and two of my cousins also came up from San Antonio. It was good to see them while they were here. Kayla was able to come and spend the day with us as well. Peyton enjoyed spending time with everyone.

For Thanksgiving Dinner we went up to Andy's dad's house. All of his family was there and everyone brought food. Another huge meal in one day. I think that we just had dessert. We were still full from lunch. Peyton had a great time playing with some of his little cousins.

Yesterday and today we have been working on getting all of our Christmas things out. Peyton loved helping us put the train together. The loves to watch is go round and round. Today he helped me with the Christmas ornaments. He would hand them to me so that I could hang them on the tree.

The love of Mr. Potato Head

Peyton has had a great week. On Tuesday at Windridge he got to go riding in the woods with Star. They went on a trail ride. My mother said he had a great time. She had to stay at the stables so she did not get to see him ride. I was really looking forward to going for the first time this coming week with Peyton to Windridge but due to the Thanksgiving Holiday they are closed this week. I was so disappointed! I guess that I am just going to have to find some other way to go see him ride.
Here at home Peyton has fallen in love with Mr. Potato Head and Dr. Seuss. We have a DVD of some of Dr. Seuss' stories that he loves to watch. He will walk around the house saying "Cat in the Hat". It is very cute. If he is not wanting to watch the DVD he is wanting to play with his Mr. Potato Head. Here are a few pictures that I took of him playing with his Mr. Potato Head.

Having a great time!

Peyton continues to do very well. He keeps all of us very busy! He is doing something four day a week. Thanks to my mother and I don't have to miss work to take him to all of his therapies. THANKS MOM!!! None of this would be possible without her. Oh what fun he is. He decided to start sitting inside the refrigerator whenever the door is open and he is near by. What a mess. Here are a few pictures....

He has also started using rocking chair more. He drags it around the house just to sit in it. This was my dad's rocking chair when he was a little boy and my rocking chair too. He just loves it.

Last Christmas he got a rocking horse that he really has not had much interest in up until now. Now he rides it almost daily. He get on and says "Yeehaw".

Peyton is having a blast getting to ride Star at Windridge every Tuesday! When you ask him is horses name he can tell you. He gets so excited. This week he even got to trot on the horse. I can not wait until I get to go and watch. I have just seen pictures and heard stories about his time at Windridge. I think I will get to see him the week of Thanksgiving. I have the week off and plan to go. Here are a few pictures of this week.

Another great week

Peyton has had a great week. He continues to do very well with his eating. He still does not love drinking yet but is doing better. This week at Windridge he rode his horse (Star) backwards and even worked a puzzle. He had a great time. He loves going to ride the horses.

Doing well with our eating.

Peyton is doing great with his eating. We are still working with his drinking and it is getting better. When we eat he is more interested in the food and even tries some of it. He really likes when we go eat Mexican food. He likes the chips and green sauce. He makes one chip last a really long time. He also like to dip his own spoon into food and put it up to his mouth. I must make sure that I have LOTS of napkins when we eat because we will both be wearing the food when the meal is finished.
Peyton is learning so fast. I can not believe how fast he is picking up on things. He is truly a Mr. Copycat!! You must watch out for what you say and do around here. Peyton and I have had a great weekend. Saturday, we went with Gaga and Papa to Canton for the day. There were lots of people there I guess because of the nice weather. Today we just hung out at the house and played. Daddy was hunting all weekend. It is that time of the year. I hope that you all have a great week.
