Happy Birthday to my Grandpa Whitlatch

Today is my Grandpa Whitlatch's 81st birthday. He has been dealing with Parkinson's for a couple years now. He went through a rough time for awhile, but seems to be doing better. Here are a few photos that I took of him and Payton when we visited them last month.

Giving knuckles.  I just love this picture!

Off the Charts

well, not quite....but growing like a weed!! 

Payton had her 2 1/2 year check-up on March 2.  She has grown quite a bit.  At her 2 year visit in August she was only at the 28th percentile for height.  She is now at the 70th!  (No wonder her pants and shirts are too short!!)  She also went from 16th percentile to the 25th for weight.  (Still a peanut in that area.  I wish I could be at the 25th percentile for weight!)  Chad was not able to be at this appointment because of track practice, but when he got home I was excited to show him her stats.  He was pretty impressed and this was his response, "Looks like she might not have to stand in the front row of the Christmas program after all!"  :) 

Wonderful Weather


This is how we have spent every single evening this week.  We have had soooo much fun playing in the backyard.  As soon as we walked in the door each night, Payton would say "outside" and out to the backyard we would go.  Then Daddy would get home from track practice around 5:30 or so and he'd start up the grill.  This weather is just unreal!  I think we had record temps all last week.  Like in the 80s!  Chad and I keep having to remind ourselves that it's only mid-March.  This weather makes it feel like we should have only 10 days of school left, instead of 10 weeks.  No complaints though----we love it!!
