She has come such a long way this month and seems so very grown up. A huge change this month for Paige was that she became a big sister, Parker arrived on June 23rd. She has taken to him so much. At first she wasn't too sure. I think that she thought he was a doll as she seemed very shocked when he moved. Now she asks to hold, feed him and is always giving him kisses. She really is such a good big sister.
She is defiantly in the toddler tantrum stage. So far they aren't that bad but I fear they will probably get worse. They don't last for long and she doesn't kick up too much of a fuss, normally her tantrums are silent but she is defiantly finding her voice.
Speaking of her finding her voice she is talking a lot more now. She regularly puts words together herself and will now repeat most words we ask her to say, even if she doesn't get them right. We are trying to encourage her speech as much as we can and it seems to be helping. She also said love you for the first time this month.
She loves puzzles so much. She can now do 6, 9 and 12 piece puzzles by herself. She will sit there for a good half an hour on her own just playing and doing them over and over. It's so amazing to watch her working them out. She also loves bubbles and stickers.
She isn't ready to potty train yet and I feel like everyone else around her age is starting to potty train. I'm not pushing her. She will be ready in her own time and quite frankly I'm quite glad she isn't ready yet. Having a newborn and potty training doesn't sound much fun.
Her napping is still hit and miss. Sometimes she naps for an hour and a half and sometimes she doesn't. She is fine getting through the day without a nap but you can notice a difference when she doesn't nap.
She jumps so high now, both feet are defiantly off the floor. She is also running a lot faster than before and loves to climb. Speaking of feet she can put her own socks and shoes on and loves going outside! She puts her shoes on basically as soon as she gets up in the morning.
She is even more of a toddler now and is starting to test the boundaries. Fun but hard work at times.
