This Just In:

Paisley's bottom tooth! At 7 months and 6 days old, sure 'nuf--it popped through and it's sharp! I didn't even see it coming because she has remained her happy, peaceful self. Though I don't know what she'll use it for since we can't get her to eat a lick of solids. Seriously, you just try to put a spoon in that girl's mouth and she starts screaming! She's all breast milk and she'd be wise to not use her new tooth for that.

Here's a funny story: I was nursing Paisley at church last Sunday. Despite the cramped space, lingering smells, and squeaky chairs, I like the mothers' lounge because I get to talk to other mamas and in a new ward it's helpful in getting to know people. So I struck up a conversation with Stephanie who was feeding her 3-month-old son, Liam. She was telling me how she has a 4-year-old daughter and I said that I also have a daughter who is almost 4. She responds that she thinks it's such a good spacing between the kids. She goes into her explanation of how she thought about having a kid every two years but she's really glad she didn't because that's just crazy, etc, etc. To which a reply, "I also have a 2-year-old son." Talk about a conversation stopper! No, seriously, it was funny! I told her that, yes, it is crazy having 3 kids so close together, but it's fun. Stephanie was nice about it and I don't anticipate any awkwardness at next Sunday's nursing. And maybe our 4-year-old daughters can still be friends! :)

Even though it's 7AM, that story about the mother's lounge conversation made me laugh out loud. Ha! You always have to be careful what you say to people, I guess! Glad you're not one to get offended!

That's funny that Paisley won't eat solids...she doesn't know what deliciousness she is missing out on! Sure, rice cereal is pretty bland, but just wait until fruit snacks enter her world. Yum!

That is hilarious! What a great start to a friendship. :)

Love the story! The coolest part about that is, if she doesn't know it already, she will soon realize that you are totally cool and she has no reason to worry that would insult you. That is one of the great things about you!

I agree with Dani. It's destined to be a "do you remember when we first met moments" between two good friends.

The nursing mother's room is a great place for making friends. It's only really awkward when men walk in and because they're so embarrassed about what they stumbled into, continue a sit-down conversation about what kind of art should hang in the room....I should tell you the story sometime...

Haha, that is too funny!
I've had an experience like that before, except I think I was the one who said the stupid part! lol
Love the tooth :)

Charly's ponytails look just like Paisley's...there's something wrong with this picure.
