Paige Update

Today, Paige had her 4-month appointment. Here are her stats:

Length: 25 in.
Weight: 14 lb. 10 oz.
Other comments: The doctor says she is really strong. She looks like it what with the chubby baby rolls she has. She is developing normally. She can roll over from her stomach to her back, and when she is on her tummy, it seems as though she is trying to crawl. She'll be moving around with Micah before we know it.

Chris felt a tooth coming through the other day. She has been a little more fussy than normal. And, she likes to suck on her lips like crazy. So, she has started teething! It's exciting for me to see her grow.

Pics of the Kids

Paige is to the point where she can roll to her side and grab her feet. She can also scoot across the floor using her feet. She has the familiar fat rolls I remember with Micah, although not as big. She sleeps best on her stomach and all through the night. Most of the time. Even if I have to feed her in the middle of the night, she'll still go right back to sleep afterwards. I'm wondering, though, how much that will change once she starts teething. She will almost always smile if you smile at her. She seems very happy!

As far as our other child goes, to put it frankly,
Micah is a bossy brat! I mean that in the most loving way. He is becoming so independent! Mentally, he is ready to use the regular seat belt in the car instead of his car seat. He doesn't really like using the high chair at the dining table. He definitely has his preferences about certain things ("No kisses!" or "Sophie, hush!" or "No water!" or "No bath!", etc.) He loves to wrestle with Enzo, the 1-year-old boy I now babysit, and Enzo doesn't like it as much. EVERYTHING is "mine". He's up and down, in and out, all over the place. Even though he has a strong personality, he is still a lot of fun. I just need to teach him how to treat others nicely.

Chris has been promoted to IT Specialist at Gannett! For Chris, it's more responsibility and lots of learning. For us, it's from $9 per hour to $15 per hour! Yeah! Baby, movin' on up! It may even be a salary position later on down the road. We figured that since they want to give him a Blackberry, or in other words, a leash. He has a big fancy desk, and he can wear jeans to work every now and then. We plan on moving out Saturday, November 1 into the same apartment complex we were in before we moved to Idaho (Golden Pond Apartments). We looked around, and they seem like the best bang for our buck without going out of the ward boundaries. Blessings are just pouring down on us, and we feel tremendously grateful.
