Day 1: July 2nd, 2010

Paige just finished up with her 3 month growth spurt. It was NOT fun for anyone in this house. Paige typically is very quiet and smiley but when she went through this growth spurt, we nickname her "little bear". Basically, she won't nap for more than 30 minutes despite being obviously tired, she eats constantly, she wakes up at least 3 times at night and refuses to go back to sleep after 3 am, and she fusses through everything we do (even her favorite games). Luckily her growth spurts only last 3-4 days.

Before the growth spurt, she was eating about 4 ounces every 3 to 3.5 hours. Sometimes she wouldn't even finish. Now, she eats 6-7 ounces every 3 hours - then wants more an hour later. I'm happy she is so hungry though because for the past couple weeks, her appetite dropped and we thought she was coming down with something. Anyways, now that she's eating around 40 ounces a day and has (approximately) doubled her birth weight, we got the okay to start her on solids.

First we tried rice cereal, which Paige totally gobbled up. She was grabbing at the mug and the spoon for more. Between bites, she was even trying to lick it off her bib! We definitely got a little messy but it was worth it because she loved it! She looks so serious in the pictures but I promise she was having fun (as were we).
