Seven Months Old: Teeth!

RICHLAND, WASH. -- Paige sprouted her two bottom teeth this month! Consequently, she has had a hard time going to sleep at night. With the way she wears herself out during the day, it's hard to believe she doesn't crash easier. The girl is always on the go, exploring and checking out every nook and cranny. She loves to hang out on the stairs, but isn't quite tall enough to get her chubby little legs up over the first stair to start climbing. 

On the go constantly!

This is the best picture I could get of the girls in matching dresses on Easter. Tough love.

  • Hasn't been weighed or measured this month
EATING: Same as last month. She loves most foods and eats best when I let her feed herself. So, we've been doing a lot of finger foods. She gets distracted so easily if Marin is around and won't eat. 

SLEEPING: Naps twice a day, generally. Once in the mornings and again around 1ish. She's in bed around 6:30 or 7, but has been waking up soon after I lay her down, because I think her mouth hurts. She will sleep through the night more often than not these days, but occasionally wakes up around 4:30 or 5 am, eat and go back to sleep. She's usually up for the day by 6:30. Marin is up by then too these days (ugh) and if she hears Paige chatting to herself in her crib, she often goes in to join her. Its fun to listen to the two of them laugh and jabber through the baby monitor in my room. When I go to get Paige in the morning's, she'll greet me with the biggest smile and kick her legs and flap her arms. Marin gets an even bigger reaction, followed by squeals. I love these two girls and their cute relationship with each other. 

WEARING: 9 months and 12 month 

  • Her two bottom teeth came in this past week. I have a feeling her two top ones will be following shortly.
  • She's gotten really fantastic at crawling. She goes everywhere and is getting faster at moving around. If I turn my back for two seconds she'll already be in another room and I'll have to go searching for her. 
  • She still doesn't make many consonant noises, like Marin used to at this age, but she has her own sounds she does frequently... Oh's, ah's and uhs, and a lot of ffff's. She also growl's a lot. Marin will copy her and Paige does it right back. This goes back and forth for a while and usually ends up with the girls giggling. It's really cute. I need to remember to record it one of these days.
