6 Months

I can not believe that I have had this most precious little person for six months now. We all truly enjoy having her in our house. She is so full of big smiles and is usually a pretty happy camper.

At six months, Paige doesn't talk too much. She is beginning to coo a little bit, but is overall a relatively quiet baby. She doesn't sit up on her own yet and can only roll over from her stomach to back. She likes to sleep on her stomach and seems to only roll over in the middle of the night when no one is watching. I think she does this because she likes to make her Mama wake up and come in to turn her back over.

Paige is an AWESOME eater. Such a far cry from her sister. Paige will pretty much eat anything that I put in front of her. She had a hard time sleeping for awhile there after we started her on rice cereal, but have since switched her over to oatmeal and is back to being a fantastic sleeper.

One of my most favorite times of day is when I get Paige out of bed. She can be lying in her crib, screaming and wailing, then I come in to get her and she lights up like a little Christmas tree. Love, love, love it! I also love bed time. That seems to be the only time that she will really let me snuggle with her anymore. In the six months that she has been with us, her dad has probably only put her to sleep twice. I won't let him! :)

I truly enjoy having this beautiful, happy, amazing girl in my home!
On a side note, I was leaving the grocery store the other day and was sitting in my car, getting it started, when I saw a blind man holding what I assume to be his daughter. I suddenly burst into tears. It broke my heart that this man, whom I didn't know from Adam, would never be able to see how beautiful his child was. I have never been so grateful for my sight as I was then. I am truly thankful that I get to wake up everyday and see both my beautiful daughters smile at me!
