Pumpkin Patch

I know this post is a bit old but Paige loved going to visit the petting zoo at the pumpkin patch!

She thinks any animal with feathers is a "duck" so of course she LOVED seeing this baby chick aka. "duck"

One of Paige's fabulous birthday cakes! Auntie Anne made her this roller coaster cake. I will need to find a picture of Auntie Elizabeth's cake (hint hint).

The family celebrates Paige's 1st birthday

Sampling her cake...She didn't know what to think about the icing but LOVES cake!

Some times she likes to show Mommy what she's eating...

A lot...

What a cutie pie!

Paige's Morning Routine: Walking

So since this is considered a major milestone I thought some of you might want to see Paigey Pants in action. She starting walking a couple of weeks ago and has progressed quite nicely. She has a hard time walking in her jammies, socks or shoes but still manages pretty well. This video is pretty typical for our morning. I get her up, give her a bottle, take her in to the office to check work email and then we head to the kitchen for breakfast. As you can see she regularly takes a detour to check on Matt and/or Crockett. Pardon the morning voice from your truly but I think it captures the experience quite well.

Paige has increased her vocabulary from "woof", "mama" and "dada" to include other works like "yis" (also known as "yes"), "na na" (usually in repetitive song form) and "hi" (usually said while waving). To her Grammy's dismay she has yet to say "Grammy" but we know she is saying it in her head and her heart all the time. :-) Paige is also becoming quite the sign language expert. She has mastered "all done" (both hands waving in air) and "pick me up" (both arms outstreached upwards). She is also the family greeter and will wave at anyone at anytime. She especially LOVES going to the grocery store and waves "hi" and "bye" to everyone who passes our cart.

Bath Songs

So here are two fun comparison videos. The first one is from March so Paige was about 5 months old. The second one was from July (9 months old). You can see she still likes to sing and rehash the days events with us. But as she's gotten older she wants to only sit in the tub (no more laying down) and usually can be found giving the duck CPR. She's a total crack up at bath time and eats more bubbles than any child I've ever known. Enjoy!

Video Commentary

Yippee! So I guess I figured out how to post video...the one posted below is a little dated (June) but still cute. :-) Paige is a social eater...meaning if anyone else is eating, she wants to eat too. The downside to this is that if she should be eating and no one else is eating she isn't interested. That has led to a slight weight gain on my end. :-( But PG still LOVES her veggies, dairy and carbs and has a tolerance for fruit. She has started to "like" applesauce and will eat banana and kiwi as long as she can pick it up (usually a mess). I will work on posting some other video for you out of towners to view and experience Paige at her finest!

video: take 2

nope that didn't work. i'll try some other ways to get a video up for those of you interested. let's try this instead...

ok so if this works it's a different video--no bath. this "might" be paige trying to eat matt's salad.


ok so i am trying to blog my first video...let's see if this works! it's an oldie...paige was 5 months old and singing in the bath tub!~

Lake Nacimiento

Paige went to her first wedding and while we were getting dressed Auntie Anne got to practice doing "girl hair"! She did a great job!

This is Paige in mid-blow...she loves to blow raspberries!

In the beginning of August we took Paige to the Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles. She got to meet her first cow (which of course says "woof").
She tasted the hay....
And met the sheep.
She was NOT a fan of the sheep saying "BAAAA" in her face.

Lake Mojave

Matt and I took a quick weekend vacation out to Lake Mojave for some wakeboarding. We had a great time hanging out with our friends the Shubins, eating some tasty food (the Nugget! rated "A" of course!), playing $2 blackjack and a few rounds of Yahtzee! The weather wasn't all that we'd hoped for (think "The Perfect Storm" meets Lake Mojave) but the company was stellar!

For those of you who have never had the priviledge to visit Searchlight, NV you are really missing something special!

As you can see Paige was all smiles while eating sugar!

She even shared some with Auntie Elizabeth!

"All gone"

Paige decided to keep a little something extra for later. We were impressed at how clean she managed to keep herself!
