My Active Little Girl

Paisley just gets busier and busier all the time.  I know it seems a little excessive to have a 7-month-old enrolled in baby gym once a week and swim class twice a week, but I actually feel like she needs even more than that going on.  This child is ACTIVE!   She loves to go running around, whether it be to the zoo, Wal-mart, or around the block.  Outdoors are her favorite and she's pretty much always content as long as we're outside.

She decided that getting one tooth this week wasn't good enough, so she decided to welcome the one next door as well.  Which she seems to be handling teething great so far!  In fact, she's slept anywhere from 8-10 hours straight at night for the past week.   Hmmm...

Ignore my idiotic expression here- point is to show you how adorable her swimsuit is!

She loves riding around on the board

Water time with daddy

Mendy and her adorable twin girls, Renna and Reagan.  It is so great seeing them twice a week for class!

I love this one because her head seems to fit perfectly in the bend of my neck.  Plus, it shows off her adorable spike she's been working on!

Enjoying a dill pickle tonight while we ate our dinner.

Downward facing dog.

A little more showing off her yoga moves.
Today is her 7 month birthday and I can't believe how fast it really has gone.  Especially considering how incredibly slow I felt the first 2 months went with the sleepless nights and endless breastfeeding.  She's more and more fun every day and I am so lucky to have such an amazing baby!

Update on our criminal and victim:   Detectives came to the clinic today to talk to each of us.  He said that the Suspect has a huge arrest record and has spent a lot of time in prison.  Our victim was only 12-years-old!  The detective felt that we handled the situation well and was quite certain that the Suspect would have killed him.  Such a sad deal, but I'm so glad it turned out the way it did. 


  1. Wow! What a scary ordeal that was for you! You truly are a life saver. Amazing!

    What a little mover you have there! She's so cute!

  2. Oh. My. Goodness. She is so cute and you look gorgeous! I do NOT look that cute when I'm in a pool:). I'm amazed at how she is moving around. Jax just won't do that. He has no desire to be mobile...yet:). And I LOVE that she has a dill pickle. I've thought about doing that, as dill pickles are a staple in our family...seeing you do it gives me permission now, lol! And her hair is just adorable! I absolutely love Jackson's spikey hair, baby hair is so fun:)!

  3. She is getting so big! I can't believe she is up and crawling already. That is so crazy!!!

  4. I bet you're needing to be pretty creative to keep her entertained at work!

  5. It's so nice that you get to do all of those activities with her! You've inspired me to reasearch a Waterbabies class that we're going to start next month. I can't wait to get her in the pool! Paisley serioulsy gets cuter and cuter everytime I see her!!

  6. She is so adorable and getting so big. We bought that same yellow giraffe bathing suit for our baby girl for this summer :)

    So I just read your crazy story from the clinic. Oh my goodness. Thank God all of you were alright. I'm so glad you helped that poor boy.

  7. I love her swimming pictures! So cute! It has totally made me want to take Elliott to the pool.

  8. Her swimsuit is just too adorable! I can't believe she's 7 mos. old! Where did the time go? It just can't be. The pic of her eating a pickle just hit me. She's still a tiny baby, right? When did she get old enough to sit up and eat a pickle? Craziness!
