Tiny Dancers

 At the beginning of August, both girls started taking dance. This is Jules' VERY first activity of her own.  She has spent many years traveling to Jillian's activities, and now she finally can do her thing too!  She is so cute in her little outfits and she gets excited every single week when Friday rolls around and she gets to go to class.  I know she is so happy and proud to have her own thing to do, and that makes me very happy too!

Jillian took dance when she was 3, then gymnastics last year.  I asked her which activity she wanted to do this year, and she chose dance.  I am so happy she did.  She LOVES her class and counts down to it every single week!  Her teacher said she was good at it...which I am sure she tells all the moms...but still I am proud.  I hope that she will continue this as an activity/hobby and as a way to be active in the future. 

Here are my tiny dancers...

Our First Day of School

 Well, we finally had our first day of school yesterday.  I think we start about 2 weeks later than most schools and the girls have been SOOOOO ready to go!  They were so excited about starting and they already know and LOVE their teachers this year!  We started out the day with Mimi and Papaw bringing donuts over!  Then Daddy and I took the girls to school and saw them off.  This is the first year that I have not been a teacher, so I REALLY enjoyed getting to take the girls to their classes!

What better way to start off the first day of school?

Ready to go!

Paisley was there too...she just didn't get a donut!

Paisley is 6 Months Old

 Well Paisley is officially half of one year old.  It is a sad day in our house because we all love having this baby and we don't want her to grow one more ounce...ever!  Paisley has made me decide that 6 months is my ALL time very favorite age.  All Paisley does is sit there smiling like crazy and looking so sweet and cute.  She doesn't talk yet. She isn't mobile yet.  She is just content with laying there watching the rest of this crazy family run circles around her!  I would love it if she were 6 months old for the rest of our lives!  

One huge change in Paisley is that she does not spit up anymore!  Halleluia!  She went from spitting up TONS all day long, to just the normal baby amount here and there.  It is so nice not to smell and wear spit up each and every day!  We have also started baby food, and she DOES NOT like any kind of rice cereal or green beans.  She LOVES sweet potatoes, squash, and all the fruits.  She is getting pretty good with the spoon and will be a champ at it in no time, I am sure.  She is pretty much holding her own bottle all of the time, but I still like to hold her while she eats.  P can also hold a sippy cup with handles, so we will be doing that more and more.  
Paisley is rolling from front to back and back to front now.  She doesn't just roll all over the house like she could though...and for that I am thankful.  I would be thrilled to death if she wanted to be lazy on all fronts of mobility.  I didn't have a huge staircase when the other two were learning to crawl, and I am still trying to figure out what to do with mine this go round! 

Paisley weighed in today at the doctor at just about 16 pounds.  That puts her in the 50th percentile!  We will take it.  I love a good healthy average girl!
