Grow Baby Grow {Paige} - 2 Years

Welp. My baby is officially not a baby anymore. Paige Noelle up and turned 2 on us! I did the girls' well-checks combined to save on a trip to the doctor, but we had to wait until after Drew's birthday, so we went last week. And shocker - Paige is just perfect!

Height: 33.5" {25-50%}
Weight: 22.6 pounds {10%}
Head circumference: 45.5 cm {10%}
Diaper size: 3 or 4 both work fine for sleep, naps are in cloth with 1 snap down
Clothes: 12-18 months in almost everything, sometimes 9-12 months and sometimes 18-24 months
Shoe size: 6

I know I say this repeatedly, but Paige is truly just such a joy. She is almost always happy and makes everyone around her smile. We get comments ALL THE TIME about how cute and sweet she is, and she really is!

Paige is talking and singing up a storm - she speaks hundreds of words and can easily string 5 or 6 word sentences together {or more!} and can even sing big chunks of songs - some recent faves are 'No More Monkeys Jumping on the Bed', 'Johnny, Johnny', 'Jingle Bells', 'Rudolph'.

She LOVES to read. We don't get many fits out of her, but when I stop the books at bedtime, she does NOT like it. 

We are still nursing, but I'm weaning her down. We've mostly dropped the morning nursing session but she still likes to nurse when going to sleep. Paige has a GREAT diet - she eats a wide variety of food including lots of fruits and vegetables - she takes after her sister on this one for sure.

Speaking of sleep, Paige takes a good 2-3 hour nap and goes to bed around 7:00 or 7:30. She is usually easy to put down, but if she fusses, we have our trusty 'Daddy song' - music that plays through the monitor - which always works. Rarely does she wake up at night, but Daddy song puts her back down 95% of the time.

Paige LOVES school - it is so easy to get her ready and out the door in the morning - I just have to mention going to see Ms. Krystin, ha. She also talks a lot about her classmates and reports on who was sick or who got hurt.

She has 20 teeth - Drew had 14 and Trent had 20 at 2, but Trent was still cutting his last 2 2-year molars and Paige has had hers for a little while now. I was shocked when we went to the dentist and she commented on 3 of them being all the way in - had no idea she cut them!

Paige loves to play with Trent and Drew. Drew can irritate her by 'loving' her a little too much, but mostly her big siblings are her best friends. Although she is still pretty much obsessed with me and is constantly telling me 'Hold you.'

We are still having great success with the potty. She wears panties 100% of the time except when she's sleeping. She will occasionally have an accident but that is not the norm.
And now some of my favorite pictures from our girl's 2nd year!

I love that you are still nursing (and liking it!) at 24 months!

She is such an adorable cutie and it is fun to hear what a joy she is!
