Payton's 1st Birthday!!




so : ) We just recently celebrated Payton's first birthday. well, actually we celebrated it twice. we had one party here in Utah with some friends and family, then we went home to Vista to have her actual party with family there as well. I cannot believe shes one. It seems like the last year has flown by so quick. We've had a lot of changes this past year. For starters we moved to Utah... I cant say its the most desirable place to live. Our roots are in San Diego and we cant imagine living the rest of our lives away from our home. So we decided that its in our best interest to make a plan to get back there someday. (sooner rather than later, relatively speaking) But for now we are enjoying our time here in Utah and especially enjoying watching Payton developing from a baby into a toddler, with teeth temper and the whole works. She hasnt had much progress in the hair department, so people tend to think shes alot younger than she really is. But shes recently hit a growth spurt and shes starting to look her age a bit more. But all in all shes really developed into a beautiful, intelligent and funny little kid. For her birthday we celebrated at our house here in Orem. we had some friends and family over, and tons of food. Grandpa Rick got her a brand new play house, complete with a working doorbell and cordless phone. She loves it. She also got alot of clothes and toys which she loves just the same. Then 2 weeks later we flew to San Diego to celebrate with more family and soak up the moisture and sun in southern California. We were there for about a week and Jordan joined us for a few days but had to be back for work. Here are some pictures from the last few weeks. : )
