Peyton's Telling Us Something

At nearly 14 months, Peyton's communication skills are getting much better. She's learning sign language at school and using a closed fist (and sometimes an open and closed fist as you can see in the video) to ask for milk. Lately, she's also been making her way to the refrigerator when she wants something to drink.

She can say "night, night" and she is becoming skilled at letting Austen know when he's made her mad by taking away a toy that she has been using. She also has started to protect those toys. If she sees him coming for the grab, she'll guard it like a basketball player would, tucking it low to her side and hovering over it.

Peyton's going to be tough...there's no doubt about it. She has a brother who likes to love on her a little too roughly but she takes it all in stride and actually relishes the attention she gets from him no matter how rough. Her daddy, says that's the way he likes his girls....ones who can dress up and be girlie but then run with the boys too -- and even show them up sometimes!


  • That's so cute- big girl Peyton! I love that picture of her with a big ol' smile!!
