Labor Day Weekend

Paige is just now really noticing the dogs. 
She likes Beefy better, I think.  He is small and very timid, where as Spike is not shy at all and will run right up to you and lick you to death.  But of course, Spike is way more interested in her than Beefy is.  Poor Spike!
We tried rice cereal the other day!
It was not a success! Ha! She didn't like it at all.  I think we will wait a few weeks than try again.  My pedi just said we should start sometime before six months, so I have some time.
She did look cute and tiny in her big chair! My baby is getting so big!
I finally found some pictures from our white party! Here are some of the cute girls looking good in their white!  My sister-in-law is the one on the right, with the grey top.
Here, with the girls! I am on the bottom left (with extensions in!) I am trying to grow my hair out that long, but it is taking some time.  I started right around when I found out I was pregnant, so it has been a year, and not too much to show for it.
We went to Dallas for Labor Day.  Here I am with Brooke and David.  We tailgated all day, so of course I felt like crap during the game.  Brooke and I drank two bottles of cheap champagne, and when that was finished we moved on to beer and trash can punch from the people next to us.  OU lost anyway, so it just really wasn't that great of a game! But I had a blast before!! : )

I thought this was funny.  It looks like we are letting Paige drive.  

Big news! Paige sleeps in her crib all night now! David has been wanting to get our bedroom back to ourselves for a while now, but I have resisted.  Finally I said we could give it a try, and we have had three successful nights there.  I cried the first time.  It just felt so wrong to me, but it was nice to just talk in bed and not have to worry about waking her.  And Paige did great! I think this new arrangement is good for everyone involved.  She is back to her good-sleeping self.  I guess that 4 month growth period of whatever is done.  Thank goodness!

So, our fall is off on the wrong foot, seeing as OU has already lost.  We were pretty bummed, but life does go on.  I guess.

Your girl is beautiful! I can't believe how much hair she has, so cute :) My son is only 2 weeks younger than your daughter, so we're in the same boat pretty much :) love all the photos on your blog!

Hi 2ofaKind! I have been a lurker on your blog for quite some time now. I thought I'd come out of hiding to tell you how much I agree with your comments regarding moving the baby out of the room and your post from a week or so back about how you hate when people tell you to "train" your daughter.

My little girl is one month old today and I totally and completely feel the exact same way!! It just feels "wrong" to try and teach her tough love to make her independent. She's just a baby!!
