Paige is 8 months old!
Paige turned 8 months old yesterday. She is such a great baby and has been an absolute joy to have in our family. We love her so much and she's growing up so fast. Her eyes have changed to a beautiful gray color (matches the outfit in the picture pretty well).
She is on a pretty regular schedule now with eating and sleeping. She typically sleeps for 12 hours each night from 6ish to 6ish. Usually she'll have a short (1 hour) morning nap and then a longer (2 hours) afternoon nap. She eats 4 bottles per day, typically 6 ounces in the morning and 5 ounces for the other meals. She is eating baby food and rice cereal every day and we think she's going to be ready for real table food once she gets some more teeth.
Paige is also getting really good at pulling up on things. Just this past week we watched as she reached up and grabbed the edge of a big storage container. Paige started to pull up on it and Andrea put her hands out to catch Paige in case she fell. To our surprise, Paige pulled herself halfway up, stopped and adjusted her feet, and then pulled the rest of the way up! We couldn't believe it!
The next day we put her music table out and tested her to see if she could do it again, and sure enough she was able to do it a bunch of times. We managed to get one on video.

We love you Paigie Pie!
