No stopping her now!

5 months!

Paige Cecelia is already 5 months old! She thinks she is older, though. She's got a brother to keep up with, right?!
This month went by fast. She's learning new tricks, and always wants to be where the action is. She doesn't stop moving until she falls asleep, literally. She's always kicking her feet or something, and she's been fighting sleep, too, little stinker.
She's already got daddy admittedly wrapped around her finger. She knows how to flirt!
So here are her estimated monthly stats and a few other notes!

Paige, at 5 months::

-Weighs 13.6 lbs. (Weighed at home as of this morning.)

-Height, guessing still around 25 inches.

-In size 3 diapers.

-Wearing size 6 month clothes.

-Sleeps pretty good. Still up at least once a night, sometimes more. We went through a "four month regression" or at least that's what came up when I asked a fb group I'm in WHY IS MY CHILD NOT SLEEPING ALL OF A SUDDEN. Or something like that. For a few weeks she seriously went from doing pretty darn good, to making me question if she had gas, had an earache, etc. etc. I even took her to the doctor and she was perfectly fine. Thankfully she's doing pretty good again, most nights.

-Rolling over all over the place. It takes her a millisecond to flip over as soon as I lay her down on her back most of the time.

-On that same note, she just started scooting! Not real far distances yet, but if a toy (or her brother) is out of reach by just a little bit, she will pull herself to it. I'm sure it won't be long before she is army crawling across the room.

-We've been working on sitting up, and she does great! Still pretty wobbly, but when she wants to, she can hold herself up with her arms out. Usually doesn't last too long yet, most of the time she just dives forward so she can be on her tummy.

-Girlfriend likes to scream. Happy screams, thankfully, but wow. She's definitely got higher pitches squeals than Levi did.

-Nursing is going good for the most part, still easily distracted! She is very interested in food, like what is on our plates. We've let her taste a few things (suck on a pickle or an apple slice, etc.) and she loves it. We'll probably start her on some baby food soon, but waiting until closer to 6 months.

-Still makes you work for the giggles! But she loves to smile!

Right Now Challenge | Week 7

Here's what I have for this week's Right Now Challenge.

- Levi, climbing in Paige's crib: "Big brudder coming! Big brudder coming!" And as he gets in next her, "Big brudder heeeerrre!"

- In the car on the way to town:
  Levi: "Mommy what that sound?"
  Me: "What sound?"
  Levi: "My not like your music mommy!"
  Me: "Ok, well what music do you want to listen to then?"
  Levi: "Old MacDonald."

- Paige's favorite pastime is screaming (happily).

- I asked Levi what he wanted for lunch (He was being whiney and getting over a little tantrum). He decided on a hot dog. I said ok, and as I was getting it out of the fridge, he sat on the floor in front of our dishwasher and, still pouting, says "It gonna be great." Lol, he is one of a kind. (This might have been a 'you had to be there' one.)

- Sitting in Paige's crib, as the mobile goes around, he says "Hew-woh, whale. Nice meet-ey you. Hew-woh, wion, nice meet-ey you." He said that to every animal as it went past him. What a goof.

Halloween fun!

We had lots of fun this Halloween! Levi got to dress up FOUR times throughout the week! First, on Sunday afternoon, our friends Molly and Kent, and their daughter, Pieper, had a little Halloween party for the kiddos. She did a great job, it was super cute! She even had a little photo booth set up outside to snap pictures! I was so happy with how this one of the kiddos turned out! Can't ask for much better. :) And to top it off, the weather was perfect! So fun!
Tuesday night, Levi got dressed up again for ECFE. He has loved going to 'school', by the way. Hopefully one time I will remember to bring my camera and snap a few pics of him.

Wednesday night, we made the rounds to visit Mark and Jess's and Grandma and Grandpa's. Levi's cousins were all dressed up when we stopped there, too! Fun!
And here is my little cowboy on Halloween night before trick or treating!
Daddy took Levi out to some of the neigbors' for trick or treating, and Miss Ladybug stayed home with mommy to hand out candy to the few trick or treaters that came to our house. Levi had lots of fun and was thrilled with all the candy he got, of course!
After trick or treating, we headed up to the school for the Halloween party that the Lions Club in town always holds. They always have a great turnout for that! Levi played a few games and got some fun little prizes. They have a costume contest for the kids, too. And guess what? Levi got third place in the age 0-2 category!! Yay! He really didn't know the difference, but he got a prize of $5, and his name and picture will be in the newspaper this week.

Hope everyone had a great Halloween, too!

Right Now Challenge | Week 6

Wow! I remembered to do this post on Sunday like I had originally planned! Late, but still. :)

Just have a few things from this past week.

- Levi: "My wove my two gwanma's."

- Levi doesn't like it when anyone calls Paige a nickname/pet name other than him. He calls her Paige-y sometimes. If I call her Paige-y or Paige-a-roo or anything like that he'll say, "No! My only call her Paige-y!"

- Levi has an imaginary pet puppy named Zoom-zoom. (????)  According to Levi, he lives in a dog house at the farm at grandpa's. He is Buddy's friend. What can I say, he's got a good imagination!! :) Crazy kid!
