Sisters







Payton has been in love with her little sister since before she was even born. Payton has a funny sense of responsibility to take care of her, she is a natural little mother, she definitely did not get get that from me. Payton is constantly telling me what Maggie needs and doing everything in her power to take care of her. She cries if I change a diaper or make a bottle without her. It really is an amazing thing to witness.

With Kutter in school, Payton has entertained herself by playing with Maggie. It is funny because Payton is constantly asking me if she can go wake Maggie up to play. I always want to say........"are you insane?" But I usually politely say...... "maybe later, princess!"

Maggie is quick to smile at the sound of both her brother and her sisters voice so it is so great to see how much they all truly do love each other. I try to remember these moments because all too soon they will be fighting. At least this reminds be that the foundation of their feelings for each other is love, it just may have some other layers on top of it sometimes.

You truly can see Payton's love for Maggie in her eyes, and I'm sure Maggie feels that love and returns it to Payton. Payton really is a cute little mother in training. We miss you guys and look forward to seeing you at Thanksgiving time.

I love those pics. I love the one where Payton is staring at Maggie like she wants to just take care of her. I am sure Maggie is in great sibling hands with those two as her brother and sister. Payton is such a girly girl! I love it! I cannot believe how big that little Payton is getting. Why do I feel like I am missing all of it. I need to schedule a trip to AZ!!!! We need to do some projects, but if I fly I would be packing them back in a suit case. haha! I will have to buy an extra suit case when I get there. Just kidding! Love you guys!!!!!!!

Your kids are so cute! I love those pictures. It's moments like that, that make being a mom totally worth it! I also love the bike pics. I still can't get my boy who just turned 4 today to even try it. He is scared to death. Oh well. Hopefully one day he will try it.
