You've Got Personality

Paisley has recently started showing off more and more that she is her own person.   I feel like she did this from Day 1 when she refused to sleep in the bassinett like the other babies in the hospital.  And then again when she hated her swing.  And when she refused to ever take a bottle.  You get the point...

But now she's starting to become goofy.  And I love it!  She'll join in when we're laughing about something even though she doesn't understand the joke.   And she has the cutest fake laugh ever.   She loves to wave at everyone in a public place, even if they don't notice.  And if someone turns to walk away from her, she shrieks and starts "complaining" at them.   

She is super playful and as busy as ever.  This child loves to explore new places and is starting to play on her own for an hour at a time.  Which is awesome!  In fact, if I try to play with her, she'll often turn her back to me and move her toy to the other side.  Everything is on her terms.

Sleeping is still going well, and still not on any type of schedule which works for the unscheduled, spontaneous family we are.   She is eating everything and loves to feed herself, which she's been doing for a while now so she's really good at it.  Problem is she likes to shove all of her food in her tiny mouth all at once. 

The cats and dogs are by far her favorite friends in this world and she says "kitty cat" and "doggy" more than any of her other words.  And she says them with much more enthusiasm.   We're so close to walking it's ridiculous, and if she would just realize that she can do it- she would.  She stands really well without holding on and has taken some good steps without falling.  I actually love the mobility, so I'm excited about her walking.   Crawling made our lives more fun and made her happier, so bring on the walking!!!


  1. What a fun little girl! I am SO jealous that she will play on her own for an hour! OMG, Jax won't let us even leave the dang room when he's playing. He is SO dependent! Can't wait to hear she is walking around for ya:)!

  2. Lil miss personality! Love it! :) She sounds so adorable and you must be soooo in love :)
