Day 79: September 21st, 2010

Today was a big day for Paige!

I joined a local mommy group so she could make some baby friends and I could hopefully meet some people that I have more in common with (none of my irl friends have babies). I was a lot little nervous about showing up at this girls house but I made myself do it anyways. Everyone was nice enough but I just don't think it's the right group for me. First of all, their babies are all around 18 months - which is great but Paige can't really "play" with them so we felt left out and they tend to be a little rough with her. Secondly - and I know I'm going to come across as a bitch here - the moms were a lot older than me. I'm definitely not a very young mom (I'm 25) but they all seemed a little put off by me being there. There were about 7 moms there and 3 of them didn't say a word to me and whenever I tried to talk to a couple of the others there, they would find an excuse to walk off right away. I had high hopes so I was disappointed but maybe I'll try again once Paige can walk.

So after a brief nap, we had Paige's 6 month appointment! Stop reading now if you don't want to hear me brag. She weighed in at 19 1/2 lbs and 27.5 inches tall (although they said she's probably about an inch taller but she refused to lay down without contorting & wiggling for them to accurately measure her). Still in the 95%+ percentile so she's a big girl! We discussed her recent milestones and the pedi said she has the size & motor abilities of a 9 month old... which I have my doubts about but it's always nice to hear your kid is advanced.

She had her shots :( but was a great sport. She only cried during the actual shot & for about 10 seconds after each one. Within about 30 seconds she was just sucking on her paci and smiling. It just breaks my heart when she cries like that... & she always looks up into my eyes & reaches for me. I guess these are the little ways you know your baby loves you. :)

So I had Paige sitting in her crib while I put away a little laundry - & I look over at her & she has practically pulled herself to a standing position! She's getting better & better at it everyday.
