This mom forgot the camera, but several other moms were taking photos, so I will track them down & get a photo to accompany this post, post haste.
In other news, Paige is "cruising" much more proficiently these days. She walks around the living room from the couch to the ottoman to the easy chair and back (holding on to each, of course). She is also doing really well feeding herself. We're trying to include more finger foods in her diet so she has plenty of chance to practice: cottage cheese, veggie puffs, tofu cubes, cut-up fruit, and (new this week) scrambled egg. All this self-feeding frequently results in bigger messes, which does not seem to bother her in the least. "Oh, that cottage cheese in my hair? Those veggie puffs on the floor? I was saving those for later..."

When we returned from Ohio, Grandma Joy & grandpa Joe were in town for a visit, but we forgot the camera. They brought Paige her first pair of patent-leather shoes - a sure sign of good luck! We look forward to seeing them again in Sept & we will take lots of photos.

Note we also recently purchased a new baby carrier, called an Ergo, and so far, we're big fans. We like the extra padding and the easy clip-n-go buckles. You can see the new contraption in the photo below with the cattle.

Friday also marked Paige's first ride on the El train. She was fascinated and made several new friends!
