Tiny Dancer {Four Month Old Ann Peyton in Pictures}

Ann Peyton is now FOUR months old on our trip down memory lane (a trip I am beginning to think will not be finished before her birthday).

[Sidenote: The title of each post and the song included therein are the titles I chose for each of the monthly Facebook albums I have created of Ann Peyton. I thought it would be fun to use the same ones for the corresponding posts, but I have to say some of the songs have lyrics that are really random for a post that is entirely devoted to your child's baby pictures. I noticed this reading back over an earlier one and especially this time. When I picked the songs, I basically just took titles or lines from the songs that were relevant to my feelings for Annie at that time and didn't really consider the overall meaning of the song (many are romantic love songs). Anyway, I was hard pressed to find any lyrics from this particular song that were remotely appropriate for the post.....she is our "Tiny Dancer", but certainly not in the context Sir Elton was alluding to.]

monthly pic with Piggy

pretending to be shy....

clearly, she's really anything but!

doing the splits before Daddy told her nice girls keep their legs together

weekly family picture with a guest appearance from The General

modeling her how it coordinates with the Boppy Pillow

precious moments!


trying some rice cereal

This is exactly how my beloved grandmother, "Bump", used to sleep!

family picture take 2

Annie bonding with The General

practicing holding her head up....

....which is SO exhausting!

most natural family picture ever- Peyton in his undershirt, me sans makeup, Annie in a onsie

looking a little scared of what a 21 year old Aunt Logan might do

SO excited!

Hotty Toddy!

one of my favorite pictures....ever

I think she is so beautiful when she's asleep.


fat little legs and my baby shoes

Baby Bear in her "warm up suit", as my Dad calls his sweats




Blue jean baby, L.A. lady,
seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile,
you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her
dancing in the sand
And now she's in me, always with me,
tiny dancer in my hand

But oh how it feels so real
Lying here with no one near
Only you, and you can hear me
