Day 55: August 28th, 2010

I am soooo proud of Paige!!! She was amazing today. We were gone from 10 am until about 11:30 pm. She was a total angel and we sat through the whole ceremony (I made sure to change her before people got there today lol)! She started getting a little cranky during pictures and stuff then slept all the way to the hotel. There was 4.5 hour break between the ceremony and reception so I wasn't sure how it was going to go - either she'd nap in my MIL's hotel room and be in a good mood for the rest of the night, or she would refuse to sleep in the hotel's crib and be a grump for the rest of the night.

Unfortunately she chose option B. :( But she wasn't that bad. You know like when kids get soooo overtired they can't let themselves calm down and rest? That was Paige. She was so tired but was screaming/laughing and just wanted to climb all over everything and play. I tried everything but the kid wouldn't nap! Go figure, as soon as we got to the cocktail hour of the reception with a REALLY really loud band, she conks out for 30 minutes. It was so loud we had to yell to hear each other but Paige apparently preferred that to her nice, quiet hotel room.

She was great up until her daddy's speech (he was the Best Man). That's pretty much where the whole night started falling apart and we still had 3 hours to go. She screamed and cried through about half of that and it was really a test on my patience. Not because she was crying - I just felt so bad for her really. But because something about a screaming, crying, upset baby tells older (50+) women to come over and call her name out, wave their hands at her, and grab her hands to try and play. Eventually she ended up crying herself to sleep :( poor little girl. She refused to eat or even nurse all day too so I was really heartbroken for her. We're recovering from it though! And the day seemed to go perfectly for the bride & groom so that's always good.

Once again, I didn't really get any pictures except for right before the ceremony. :(
