Anyways...Peyton is American (and Canadian) so she started wearing some patriotic clothes and here are some pictures I took of her. We will have to do some Canada Day pictures as well to showcase her multiple nationalities!

3:30 PM: Mommy heads out with the small group girls for an afternoon of pampering Melissa! She is due in September with her first and we did a mommy pampering day complete with pedicures, pampering gifts, and dinner at Olive Garden, for her instead of a traditional shower.
5:30 PM: Daddy heads out with Peyton for their first father/daughter date. They went to Target, Home Depot and then had dinner together at Chick-Fil-A. They had a blast and are excited about their future dates together.

Here is my ridiculous attempt at going to the gym/running this week so far...
Monday: Run in the AM (didn't happen). Play date and then go to the gym in the afternoon since I didn't run in the morning. (I made it to the play date and instead of the gym, I ate the majority of the pre made Pillsbury chocolate chip cookies without cooking them...apparently John thinks it is healthier to eat 8 cookies when cooked)
Tuesday: Since I had not made it to the gym at all Monday...once again Gym. (Instead I made it to Starbucks but I did ask them to hold the whip cream on my Java Chip Frapacino). I did manage to make dinner and have some girls over while John ran off to watch the Astro's game with the guys. Which has nothing to do with exercising.
Today: Play date and you guessed it....gym! I am hesitant to commit to going today since I would have to go once Peyton is down for the night but we will see since....
Thursday: Palm Beach at Moody Gardens all day and then girl's dinner out at a Mexican restaurant (why I need to go to the gym today)
Friday: Play date at the pool in the morning and then really I should go to the gym that afternoon because I don't see myself going today...
Saturday: I am supposed to meet up with some friends at 5:30 AM and run....hence why I have been trying to go to the gym/run so I don't die.

Here she is grabbing onto the curtains in the living room....
I have a video of her actually playing with the door stop but as soon as I tried to take photos she of course stopped and started modeling...seriously what kind of pose is this and where did she learn this from....
Finally I leave you with Peyton's first piece of artwork that she made at a play date yesterday. It was her Father's Day craft. Yes, I was bold and let her put paint on her hands and surprisingly we all survived with no paint on our clothes!

This is what we found when we checked on Peyton tonight. I don't know if it was intentional or an accident...either way we had a little bit of a challenge getting her chunky leg out. Hopefully she keeps all appendages inside from now on.

No worries...no babies consumed any caffeine in the above picture. Granny was done with her Starbucks and thought it was cute! She is never to young to learn to love Starbucks!
That night John and I headed downtown to happy hour with a former coworker of mine. Kate was hired at JWT when I was and moved to New York last year. She was in town with her husband for a wedding so all of us former and current JWT people got together for a night of drinks and catching up. I was so happy that my mom came over and watched Peyton for us because it was the first time in a long time that John and I were out together doing something fun with a group of people. It seems that it is always one person or the other out and it is fun to do stuff together more often. We had a blast at the Treehouse which is a rooftop/tree top bar at the Discovery Green park. The bar was really nice and had great views of downtown and we could hear Jazz music from Discovery Green. Most of all it was so much fun as always catching up with everyone. I miss talking with Kate and being around her infectious joy...she is the type of person that you can't help but smile around her. I love her passion for life and her joyful spirit! I know I say it all the time but I miss the people I worked with!
That night although we were all exhausted John and I kept our date scheduled and Peyton again hung out with Granny. We kept it short since we were out pretty late the night before and visited a Mediterranean restaurant in our area called Mediterranean Chef. It had a great atmosphere and delicious food! We will be going back for sure! I really felt like I was transported to another country! Tons of fun! After dinner we all headed home and were all in bed by 9:00 PM and we all slept in with Peyton waking up at 8:00 AM this morning! That is two hours later than normal! It was perfect!
Next week we have some playdates, storytime at the library, dinner out with the ladies from our small group, attempting to go to the gym at least once, start running again so I can justify me registering next month for the Houston Half Marathon in January (if anyone has suggestions on fitting in running and an infant let us know) and getting stuff done before our week becomes full with swimming lessons starting the 15th!

Also, Peyton is nine months old tomorrow! How did that happen so fast?
