Our Little Peanut

Leighton is one of those boys that just loves his momma. There is really no other way to put it! He has been attached to me since day 1, and everyone was pretty worried what would happen when Ryleigh arrived. Before she was born he was perfectly content to just sit on my lap all day long. He wouldn't let me out of his sight in public, and is definately one of the most shy three year olds I have ever met! We all thought for sure he would be riddled with jealousy once Ryleigh was born. He has proved us all wrong! He is an amazing big brother. He loves Ryleigh to pieces and dotes on her all day long. He has been incredible with "sharing" me and has grown up so much in the past six weeks. He has also given Ryleigh her official nickname, "Little Peanut." He calls her his little peanut and it just stuck! When I found a shirt at Gap that said Little Peanut we just had to have it. Leightons asks if Ryleigh is going to where it everyday, and today I tried to get a picture of her in it. Needless to say, she kept putting her hands in front of it, but here is what I did get!





Doesn't she look like a completely different baby when she smiles?! It is such a big cheesy grin! And here is one of the two of them together. Technically it's a horrible picture, but to me it's perfect!

He looks so grownup feeding her. What a handsome boy. And Ryleigh makes the cutest fate. Did you spell her name that way because it had the "leigh" in it like Leighton?

How sweet!! What a doll!! I love the throw you are using for the background, its perfect!

Suzy said...

They are all great shots but I just love that last one!

Yvonne said...

Great photos! I love the way the colors pop in these! The B&W ones are also great because there's enough texture and differences in gray colors that they also "pop"!

Amy said...

She is so stinking cute and looks like a very happy baby! I just love that second shot of her big grin with her holding her head up. And the last one is so sweet, you can see the love between the two of them.
