18 Months – How Time Flies

Ok, first I know it has been ages since I actually updated my blog. Time has just been flying by since I have been back at work. It is hard to believe that Paige is already 18 months. How she has grown and changed over the last 5 months since I last posted.  It has been a winter full of colds, flu and ear infections.  I am sure most mom’s can attest to the sleepless nights that first winter after going back to work, but keeping our fingers crossed that now that the warmer weather is arriving that this cold & flu season may finally be over.  Also the fact that we are pretty much through the teething phase I would expect shall make a big difference as well.

The last 2 weeks Paige has been transitioning up to the toddler room at her daycare and that has not gone as smoothly as we would have liked, but I think things are finally sorted out and I don’t have to be worrying to much about my little girl!

Paige has become so independent and we have seen her grow by leaps and bounds. The last 6 weeks have been especially big with so many changes coming at us. Our little girl is growing up.
