I have been insanely busy during the past week I've been in D.C. so I've got tons to catch up on. I thought the first should be what I'm referring to as "Baby Day"...that was today where I spent some time with the latest additions to my life. I went to visit my beautiful "nieces" (the daughters of two of my oldest and closest friends), Payton and Ryane. First I went over to Mary and Andy's house to see Ryane who is about 12 weeks old. I think she looks exactly like both of her parents and has the hugest most beautiful blue just can't fight those strong Powderly genes. :) They like to call her an orangutan/ dolphin because she makes squeaky noises and holds onto you like a little monkey.
We put Ryane in her daddy's firefighter helmet which was unbelievably adorable, although it didn't last too long. We may try again in a few weeks.

Directly from there I headed over to Kelly and Erich's house. They were kind enough to loan me a car over the weekend so that I wouldn't have to rent one. Thanks again guys! :) So, I got to spend some quality time with Payton Marie Hoffman who is the newest edition to our big happy family. She's such a little peanut, still tiny but a fiesty little one. We stuck her in a basket wrapped in a beautiful blanket (knitted by her grandmother Marylou) to take some pictures, she didn't seem to mind too much. Eventually she got tired of being nude and her mommy rescued her. She does have HUGE feet by the way, in case you read my previous speculation. Here are a couple of images...

Little Payton looks so darn serious! Ha! My feisty one did not like the sunlight so much. Thanks so much for the beautifully shot pics! So good to see ya auntie Justinie! Next time you visit, little peanut will be 4 wks old and filled out a little more..not so much like a wrinkled old lady!
