Future Golfer??????

We took Payne to the golf course this past weekend to hang out while Ryan hit some range balls.  Payne had a lot of fun.
Payne played on his blanket for a while until he noticed his daddy was swinging golf clubs and Payne wanted to play with his daddy. 

Payne wanted his own golf club to play with. He did look pretty cute playing with it.  Yes, he already has his own set of golf clubs.

OHH What a day!

So, yesterday Payne woke up with a swollen eye. A REALLY SWOLLEN EYE!( See below)
I was really worried it was related to the fall yesterday, but quickly decided it was mostly likely pink eye. So we decided to go to the walk in clinic at 7, but there was no doctor and they wouldn't be in until 9. So, I called a parent from school that is a doctor and she met me at school to look at the eye. She confirmed it was pink eye. Since we had already started drops she thought it was fine to send him to school. Off he went. With the hour they called me and said he had a rash. I brushed it off and said it was from the new food he tried last night and this morning, no big deal. Well, then they called again a few hours later and said it was worse and that he wasn't acting himself. So, Ally went to get him and I took off work at 12. When we got home he ate lunch and then we were going to take a bath and when I took off his clothes he had hives everywhere. 
I called both my friends that are doctors and they suggested taking him in so we did. By the time we had left the doctor we had confirmed cases of pink eye, hives due to a allergic reaction to plums, and an ear infection to top it off! 
We had to wait a long time at the doctor and it got pretty hard to contain the little man when he wants to crawl everywhere! 
Anyways, that was our day yesterday! We got the ok to go back to school today, so hopefully everything will be ok!

Busted Lip or Black Eye???

Tuesday I got a call from Payne's daycare around lunch saying that he had fallen and busted his lip.  They wanted me to come see and decided if I wanted to take him to the doctor.  By the time I had gotten the message and called back they said it wasn't as bad as they originally thought.  I wanted to go check it out for myself. When I got there, it wasn't that bad.  So, I rocked him to sleep and went back to work.  After school I went back to pick him up and he had a little black eye. 
Poor little man.  He is pretty tough though.  Hopefully his eye won't get any darker.
I can't even tell where he busted his lip, but they said it was pretty bloody.

Payne laughing at Sallie

Sallie came over yesterday and Payne just loved watching her play. He chased her all around. Sallie and I were throwing a ball and Payne laughed so hard about it.  My favorite part was when she left and came back, Payne gets super excited!

 I love to watch Payne play in the bath. He loves to splash and watch the water move all around him.
 His favorite toys in the bath are the cups and the starfish!

Mother's Day

 We had an awesome Mother's Day. This morning we had breakfast casserole and fruit. Then opened presents. Ryan and Payne got me a new ring that says, Jackson Payne on it. I love it! We dedicated Payne this morning at church. Our families came up to join us.
 Ryan's side of the family before church.
 After church we ate lunch at Noodles.  Always a fabulous place to eat!
My mom, Payne, and I.
Thanks to all the mothers out there!
Also, thanks to everyone who help make my first Mother's Day great!

8 Month Pictures

 We are into this shy thing. I am not sure! He has only seen Meredith a million times!
 He was very unhappy that I put him down. It took us a minute to regroup and realize we knew what we were doing!

 His bunny ears. (These were taken a few days before Easter)

 This one is my favorite! I think it's a frame!

I can't believe that P will be 9 months soon! Where has time gone! I better start getting to planning a birthday!
