Paige: Five Months Old, Sitting, Rolling, Eating

RICHLAND, WASH. -- Little, sweet Paige hit the five month mark last Sunday. She's sitting up, rolling all over, trying food, and is pretty much a dream baby. 

Sporting a fur vest some of Isaac's coworkers gave her when she was born. She's a trendsetter, this one.

I'm not sure how much this trend has caught on in the Tri Cities, she got several comments at church about her fur. 





EATING: We decided to hop on the real foods bandwagon a few weeks ago... if rice cereal counts as a real food. So far we've tried rice cereal, oatmeal, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans and applesauce. No strong opinions one way or the other, but I think she enjoys having us stick a spoon in her mouth with something on it. She usually just tries to grab the spoon to suck on it.  

SLEEPING: Usually wakes up around 4:30 or 5 every morning, eats and then goes back to sleep until around 7 or 7:30. She'll rarely fall asleep while I feed her before nap times anymore. Instead, I just lay her down wide awake and she goes to sleep just fine. It's really fantastic. She naps around 9:30am and again at 1ish. 

WEARING: 6 months with a few 9 month things for kicks

INTERESTING TIDBITS: Paige adoringly gazes at Marin whenever she is playing near her. She gets a huge smile on her face in the mornings and starts to kick and flap her arms when she sees Marin. This is both darling and confusing to me, as Marin gives the poor baby some tough love sometimes. She'll often lay on top of her, whack her in the face if she's frustrated or occasionally push her over for no reason whatsoever. But, sweet Paige still adores her big sister. I hope it always stays that way. As long as big sister is behaving appropriately. My favorite though, is when she sees me after having not seen me for a small or long period of time (in the mornings, or if Isaac is holding her). She gives me the biggest squeal and smile and it makes me melt every time. 
  • Rolls all over the place
  • Sits up like a champ
  • Had her first swing ride
  • Slobbers like its going out of style... I'm guessing some teeth are about to pop up soon
  • Likes to smile and "talk" to strangers who pass by her in church, at the store, or wherever... pretty sure she makes their day.
  • Is incredibly ticklish under her chin (and pretty much everywhere else)
She mostly enjoyed watching Marin on the swing

It was really cold, but sunny, so we had to bundle her up in this bear suit
