Paige: Ten Months Old and a Top Tooth

RICHLAND, WASH. -- Cute little Paige has really got quite the fun personality. She is happy, giggly and likes to chat up a storm. She's also got separation anxiety like you wouldn't believe. If I step anywhere away from her she freaks out like I'm about to head to China or something. 

She finally has a third tooth. Finally. A top tooth decided to show itself a few weeks ago. We keep waiting for the second top tooth to appear, but nada so far. So for now, she is a three-toothed babe! 



TEN MONTH STATS: 
  • no doc appointment this month
EATING: The girl loves food. Especially fruit. 

SLEEPING: Still naps twice a day.  Once in the mornings and again around 1ish. She's in bed by 7 usually and sleeps until 4:30 or 5. She goes back to sleep for a few hours after I feed her.  

WEARING: Wears 12-18 generally, with smaller sizes in some things. 

INTERESTING TIDBITS:


  • Got her first haircut. We put her in the sink, gave her some toys, and I chopped off those long, stringy strands.
  • Words she can say now: Ma, Daddy (sounds like Dah-eee), dog (Da), ball, and just a few weeks ago at church I got her to say Jesus (Jsss). 
  • She likes to crawl off my lap and head toward the nearest exit to try her hand at opening doors. If there is the smallest gap in between a closed door, she will weasel it open and crawl away.
  • She is SO close to taking her first steps. But she's so cautious that she'll stand for a long time and just when you think she'll step forward, she sits instead.
  • It's been this way for a few months, but she DOES NOT hold still if I try to change her diaper. It is the hardest task to complete. 
  • Loves bath time with Marin. She squeals and bounces up and down when we start the water running.

See those stringy strands on the sides? They were getting really bad looking. They had to go.

Despite how the YouTube tutorial depicted, it was actually hard to get her to hold still long enough to even trim off those few strands.

We tried to entertain her in the sink with some toys. It was a challenge. 

LOVES bath time 
My mom made this smocked dress for Marin, but it never fit her at the right season. So, this hand-me-down is brand new.

from Lorena: I love your blog updates! And I love that I have finally gotten to see these adorable girls of yours! They are honestly so cute and you are such a fantastic mom. I wish I had known your diaper changing challenges when we were together, I would have demonstrated the diaper changing trap position that I finally invented with Jake - seriously all three of my kids have been nuts to change and I finally came up with a way to do it with Jake and it was a game changer.
