As of 8/8/19 Payton Pennington Ladd is 3 days past her due date. She’s given us several signs over the past couple weeks that she’s ready to come join us, but apparently was just teasing .
If she doesn’t decide to come out on her own, Mama will be admitted into the hospital on Monday 8/12/19 (exactly 18 months from Dylan’s birthday) and they’ll induce labor. Dylan took her time and came out on her own, and hoping Payton will do the same. Either way we’ll just be glad to meet her.
In the meantime, those of us in the outside world are doing well. Mom and Dad got a new (to us) car with more room for the girls, and are celebrating about a year in our new house. The renters in our first house have never missed a payment and have been very easy, so we’re thankful for that.
Dylan has about 8 teeth in various states of completion now, and has been such a strong young lady dealing with them. She’s not speaking more than a few words yet, but her understanding and other communication skills are amazing. She loves to climb, “reading” is still her favorite activity and has really been watching the birds in our backyard lately.
We’ll update everybody once Payton has joined us, and here are some pics taken over the past couple months.
