Help!!! She is a thumb sucker and likes to rub things on her upper lip. Usually these "things" are chewed up food, like fruit snacks, or raisins, or fruit. Disgusting, I know. I really don't know what to do. Fortunately, we haven't had a real emergency with this, but one will be in our near future if she keeps this up. Any ideas out there?

- "Amen" - used in place of, The End, when finished reading a story
- "CakeCake" = Pancakes
- "Fummer" = Thunder
- "Buggie" = Any bug, especially flies
- "Afier" = Pacifier
- "Sauce" - used for any fruit or veggie dip, condiments, and diaper ointment. Like when I'm changing her diaper she'll say, "I want sauce, mommy!"
- "Bankum" = Blanket, and she loves them
- "Wapper" = Fly Swatter
- "Wee ha" = Yee ha
- I love the way she thinks every color in the box is "greem".
- I love that she pronounces L's with a w sound.
- I love that she is so polite and almost always says please, thankyou, and sorry.
And my favorite Paige-ism (and she came up with this on her own) is that she says all bodily functions are an elephant. Like the other day I could tell that she was grunting. I asked her if she was pooping and she replied, "no mommy". I said, "Well, what's that smell?" And she replied, still grunting, "An elephant!"
Another time in the van Alaina was pooping loudly. And Paige blurts out, "Awaina elephant, mommy. Awaina elephant." I said, "Does Alaina need a daiper change?" "Yes, mommy, Awaina elephant!"

Paige loves to pick the "fwowers". We don't mind as long as she doesn't blow them into our yard. She also loves to walk Aunt Amber's dog, Lucky. You can see the leash in her hand. Also take note of her "Papa's side kick" t-shirt. Papa got that for her in Florida.

Just being goofy!
I guess she wore herself out!
I also had to share some pics of Mark racing some friends on a slip 'n slide. Here he is on the left against Greg Isaacson.
And against Trevor Bollers. I will brag him up. He did win every time!

So we get to the mall. Paige, Alaina, and I, that is and we are at a bench by the carousel trying to get Paige to put on this super hot cow costume and all she wants to do is ride the carousel. In my haste I tell her she can ride it after lunch. Not really thinking that I have to ride it with her and I have Alaina, our double stroller, my purse, the diaper bag, our camara, etc. Anyway, she gets all dressed, looks so adorable, and hates it. She cried all the way to the counter. I had to carry her. We did get a free meal, but the people working seemed less than impressed. I think the mall goers liked it the most.
So we eat, after I promptly removed her from the dreaded costume and it hit me as there is no way I am going to be able to take her on the carousel by myself. I was trying to avoid it leaving the mall, but her keen eyes spotted it and she reminded me. Thinking that I am super mom, I decided that I could carry Alaina, and just park the stroller inside the gates. I could do this. So we put our dollar in the machine and Paige has her token to get on the ride. As we are just ready to get on, I picked up Alaina and she had a blowout. There was poop everywhere. So we have to leave the carousel. Paige was now crying because she now thought she wasn't going to get to ride it. Well, I got Alaina cleaned up, got in line again, stepped on the carousel, and as I was lifting Paige onto her horse, she cries, "I pooped!" And she did, boy did she stink. But we were riding that carousel if it killed me. And she did have fun. What I'll go for for free food!
