I used to think that I wanted to adopt a 3 or 4 year old because I didn't want to do the "baby" phase. I didn't want to do the diapers, I didn't want to deal with the spit up, I didn't want to deal with the midnight feedings, and no sleep... but now, I can't imagine missing this part!
I love love love love my baby girl. I love her big brown eyes (that look just like daddy's eyes), I love the smile on her face when she sees me after I've been at work all day, I love her baby smell, I love her little feet, I love when she falls asleep on me, I love when she reaches her arms up because she wants me to pick her up, I love watching her sleep, I love picking out cute little outfits for her to wear, I love watching her discover a new toy for the first time, I love feeding her (even though it's messy sometimes!)... seriously I could keep going!
Over the last week Paige has gotten much stronger sitting up. She can't sit up on her own, but if we sit her down she can stay there without falling over, it's so fun! She seems so close to getting ready to crawl, if we lay her on her belly she can turn in a full 360 degrees and she can go backwards! She's attempted to get up on her knees and you can see that look on her face like "oh, I should try to go forward, but I just can't yet." She's now had oatmeal, rice, bananas, peaches, and green beans! She's doing great with all of them! We just finished up some antibiotics for an ear infection and heading back to the doctor today for a check up, but she's doing great, you really couldn't even tell she was sick! She's still sleeping great, occasionally she will wake up in the middle of the night, cry for about 15 sec then go back to sleep and I can usually get an extra 30-60 min in the morning if I just put the pacifier back in her mouth.
Okay, enough bragging about my baby... I just love her so much...
