"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Paige is 9 Months

My sweet babe.  She has now been on the outside for as long as she was on the inside!  She has grown so much.

29"- 90%
17 lbs 5 oz- 20%

Paige is a hand clapping, peek-a-boo loving, rolling, scooting, ball of sweetness.  I think she is going to be the peacemaker in our family.  She has such a calm and gentle spirit; she calms the rest of us down.

Paige has decided that she does, in fact, like food.  Her favorites are sweet potatoes and broccoli.  She's more a fan of veggies than fruits, which is surprising.  I make nearly all of Paige's baby food and she prefers it that way.  She now refuses to take a bottle and hasn't figured out a sippy cup.  This has made getting extra fluids difficult; I end up feeding her with a syringe.  What a spoiled babe!

Paige also decided that she doesn't like sleeping through the night.  She has been waking up 1-2 times.  I spoil her and nurse her rather than make her cry it out and self soothe.  I need to stop this!  I must confess that I secretly like snuggling my babe in the wee hours of the morning when the world is all asleep. 

Paige loves the outside, banging things, stomping her feet in her exersaucer, and putting everything in her mouth.  I've never had a baby put so many things in their mouth!  I don't even know where she finds it all!

She lifts herself in the crawling position and is doing many yoga poses, but she still just army crawls on the floor.  I have a feeling in the next month she will be on hands and knees.  We're in no rush!  I want her to stay a baby forever.

  1. Love this little munchkin - why do you need to stop nursing her - way too young in my opinion. Moms and babies need that special time together as long as it works.
