Pulling UP!!!

I swear Paisley is changing so fast right now that it's almost crazy.

This week, she started pulling up to standing.  All I know is that she was playing on the living room floor with her toys, so I went to the kitchen to fill up my water bottle.  I walk back around the couch (like 30 seconds later) and she is on her knees with her hands on the couch.  Then she popped up to her feet.

She looked at me and realized how proud of herself she was, so she broke into a huge grin.  SUPER CUTE!  Now she pulls up on everything and even starting cruising around the furniture a lot.  She already loved walking around while holding onto our hands.    Early walker?  We'll see...

She doesn't like to be rocked to sleep at night.  Never really has.  So I started nursing her, "dancing" with her while listening to soothing music, and then laying her down in her crib.  And it works like a charm.  She goes right to sleep without all the fussing!  Who knew such a crazy thing would actually work???

And lastly, one of my favorite IF friends is having a baby shower tomorrow to celebrate her twin boys that she is pregnant with.  I'm so glad to be attending such an awesome event!!!


  1. What a big girl!! And congrats to your friend...what a miracle!

  2. I forgot to comment on your last post about the crib - we moved ours down a few hours after I read your post because we went in and found Jax pulled up to stand in there! I thought it was hilarious because I had JUST commented to you about it! Jax is always pulling up on everything (especially us). He gets himself stuck standing in his crib and cries until we go in and help him back down, lol! He is not graceful in getting back down yet. He has fallen into the coffee table twice now after pulling up on the ottoman, so we have had to make some changes in our living room:). What goes up, must go down, so be careful, lol! Congrats to Paisley for such a big step!

  3. Oh no, I can't believe she's standing! Please don't tell me they change that fast! Crazy!

  4. Our girls are getting way too big, way too fast! Callie has been pulling up on things recently also and just the other day, pulled up on our couch to stand in front of it which I didn't think she could do because it's pretty tall. The way she's going, she'll walk before she ever crawls...

    As for a reply to your post-nursing hasn't been bad at all. I think because I had so little to begin with, probably helped me out but I have not felt uncomfortable at all. It's also nice getting back into my old bras and being able to pick out clothes without thinking about how easy it'll be to pump/nurse with that shirt on. :)
