At any rate, we are grateful to have her bright smile and exuberant squeal in our home. She truly brightens our day as she returns our greetings with enormous smiles, hugs, and "kisses" (she grabs our face and eats it). We love you, little Paige.

Paige - 6 Months Old
My poor little Paige, I'm afraid she gets overlooked sometimes, but she really is such a bundle of fun and such a joy to our family. As my mom says - She's just the right size to hold and play with. We went to her 6 month checkup, and she is only 12 pounds 12 ounces (2%). She is my smallest baby so far (about a pound behind Macy at that age, and nearly 2 and a half pounds behind Austin). But, her little body contains so much spirit! I don't know what it is with my kids - they seem to come with a fire inside of them that they just can't seem to contain. She sits up now, and she is already going from sitting to hands and knees, then she starts rocking! I'm not ready for her to crawl; she is supposed to be my little baby! On her stomach, she can get almost anything she wants. She goes around in circles and kicks her feet against the floor to scoot. She is extremely determined (sound familiar?!?). As a parent, I'm always wondering about the debate between nature and nurture. It is obvious to me, watching this vibrant little girl, that she has been given this spirit, determination, and amazing curiosity and love for life. It makes me wonder what Heavenly Father has in store for her! I often think of the scripture in D&C 82:3 when I observe the amazing gifts, talents, and abilities that my children possess. "For of him unto whom much is given much is required."
