Ok I'll try this again!!

The last few times I have tried to update this blog, the baby woke up early from her nap, I got busy cooking or baking, and my favorite- I load all this pictures and it disappears... So here we go!!! Start at the bottom and work your way up.

We have Christmas coming up- so look for pictures from Paige's first Christmas!!!! I have got to figure out how to put movies on here- For Christmas Jeff and I gave each other a video camera!! So now including pictures we will be posting movies!

This next week I am taking Paige for her 6 month check up- Paigey is 6 months old!!!! Can you believe it?! She Amazes Jeff and I everyday and she is such a joy and blessing. We are over the moon and having so much fun! So far this age is my favorite, she is grabbing for everything, and not to mention my little lady smiles the whole day! Enjoy the pictures! Now that I have caught up this won't be such a daunting task to keep up with!

Love to all!!

Ann, the amaryllis that you gave me back in October- bloomed for Thanksgiving :) it was beautiful!!!!!

Paige can ALMOST sit up!! She will sit up but then flops over. We went to the grocery store this past Monday, and Paige sat in the cart like a big girl! (With the grocery cover on the cart of course!) We went grocery shopping at 8am- FYI Safeway grocery store opens at 6am, why didn't anyone tell me this!?! We went took our time and actually came out not forgetting a thing! She loved sitting in the big girl seat and looking at everything, and holding/ chewing on my list.

What is this???

Rudolph the white nosed reindeer??

I couldn't wait to put up the Christmas tree- the day after Turkey Day Jeff went and bought a tree at Ace Hardware (we were going to go up to the mountains- but Paige's cheeks and skin are just like mine and turn bright red and breakout as soon as the cold hits them) SO maybe next year!

Paigey has found her voice- she squeals blows on her bottom lip (like fart noises- Tara your boys would be so proud :)
So very over the photo shoot!!!

Paigey Soup!

My uncle's rocking chair :)

We went up to my Dad and Mom's so Jeff could go hunting (he used his tag and mine and got 2 very nice little bucks! Our freezer is full!) my Mom and I had (well mostly my Mom:o) the idea to put her in things, and take her picture!

Look Ma- I can hold it all by myself!


Paige was a pink leopard for Halloween! We waited and waited- we got 7 trick or treaters. But remember we had over 10" of snow and it was colder than cold!!!

Halloween!!!!!! And Paige wasn't too excited first...

My little lady is holding her head up to high now! Paige can roll over and has been from her tummy to her back. The only time she will roll from her back to tummy is when she is upset. I think she thinks she doesn't need to- it's totally a waste of her time!

So I know this isn't a picture of the baby- but we got the most INSANE snow storm before Halloween. This is from our roof to our fence!! It was BEAUTIFUL!

See Tara the giraffe is being well taken care of!! And Paige LOVES it!

Thank you to Nicole and Tara for the hand-me-down baby bjorn!! I knew I would HATE it.. however it is great for when I am running errands, or when Paige is fussy and wants to be attached to me! I love my sling but I can put her in this super quick and get laundry done!
Sorry Jeff- had to show that you love it too :)

We Got back just in time for my birthday (yes I turned the BIG 25!!) for Paige's Doctor's appointment-which was on my birthday, Happy Birthday to me.. She got a normal check up- everything is great she is healthy and happy and weighing in at: 14lbs 12oz 23 3/4" !!! What a big little lady :) the doctor said we could start rice cereal - if we wanted. I said why not could be fun!! Well a messy fun! She wasn't liking it at first but now we are eating: pears, sweet potatoes, peaches, green beans- and soon carrots!!! And yes, I am making my own baby food. I bought the greatest book on (my go to website for anything) and they had the most wonderful 100 to baby puree's. So we are having fun making baby food and trying new tastes!

Right after I got back from my Dad and Mom's we left for Michigan! Jade- my best friend from high school got married October 17 (my Dad's birthday!). This is what Paigey wore! She was such a trooper and didn't even cry!!!

I went up to my Dad and Mom's while my sister Tara and her kids where there (so Trevor could go hunting). Paige was overwhelmed by all of the noise that Tian and Trace could make, she was beside herself in over stimulation! But somehow my Dad got her to fall asleep- he hasn't lost his touch :)

So by this point Paige is still sleeping in our bedroom. So I wanted her to be able to nap in the pack and play (which was in our living room) then to nap in her crib, then sleep at night in her crib! This lasted a month.. then the whole sleep regression around 4-5 months happened... And she is back in our bedroom at night- needless to say the bassinet is HUGE and she is slowly growing out of it! We are currently working on getting her to sleep in her crib at night... stay tuned...

Loving the Johnny Jump up! She would stay in there all day if I let her.

Paige finally took a nap without me holding her!!
