The "W" word

You all know the one:


This word has now entered Bailey's vocabulary list and I'm not too thrilled about it. Yes I know it's a normal part of development, but it can also be a little annoying. But our girl knows how to be so sweet when she asks it. "Bailey you need to lay down." "Why mommy?"

Can you guess what my answer was?

That annoying answer that every child looks forward to get to use as a parent:

"Because I said so."

A little OCD perhaps?

This is Bailey's little table that she LOVES. But her chairs have to be just like that. If I turn them in the way they're supposed to be, she FREAKS! And every once in a while she'll turn the chairs in the opposite direction, but they're always in that position.

And don't you like how it's decorated? It's not like mommy spent hours painting it white. Bailey thought it needed a little something extra. And just a tip, washable crayons are not as washable as you would think. Now I could scrub it clean with a white eraser, but I like to pretend that I'm one of those cool moms who let their children freely express themselves. Or I've just been too lazy to do it. But I like to pretend I'm cool.

Nap time

These days (the past 2 weeks) Bailey goes to lay down at 12:45 for nap time. I tell her it's nap time and she can watch "Emo" or "Bob bob bare pants". She normally chooses Nemo but it really doesn't matter. She's out within minutes.

Last week she climbed behind the pillows and fell asleep

So these aren't nap related, but they're still cute. We decided to have a little photo shoot.

Growing up TOO fast

Bailey bug had her first dream about a boy last night :( She's always talked in her sleep and last night she said "Ty...No get Bay". Ty is an adorable little boy at church that she loves to play with. Whenever we say we're going to church she always says "TY!" It's just too funny that she dreamed about him.

Then this morning she decided to go shopping. She got her credit card that she got in the mail (all our junk mail is "Bay's mail"), her purse (princess door hanging) and went to the door to go on a shopping spree. In her jammies.

No nap for mommy!

We actually left the house and went "bye-bye" today. It wasn't a big trip but a huge adventure for Bailey. She pointed out the cows, cars, "big cars", "big trucks", horsies, and the horsies that neigh (b/c aparently not all horsies say neigh) She did not stop talking!!

She thought it was so fun to go to the "ball bay" (library) and drop off books, even though we didn't get out of the car. Then she crashed HARD.

She stayed like this for about 45 minutes.

During that time Austin and I hung out and cuddled. He was exhausted, but couldn't quite fall asleep.

I FINALLY got him to sleep, put him down, got my pillow to lay on the couch and before I could even lay down, Bailey walked in the living room. So I spent a good 10 minutes cuddling with her and getting her back to sleep. Then I lay down and what do ya think happens? Yup, Austin starts crying so I gave up my hope for a nap. He slept on my chest while I played Sudoku online.

Welcome to the family...


Bailey's friend Isaac ("I-ee") is moving to Albequerque next week. We are very sad about this but are happy we have something to remember him by. Bailey was VERY excited about him and was quick to name him.

Our poor girl is on the couch today with a cold. :( She's doing pretty good though. She's taking her medicine nicely and likes to blow her nose. She's reading books and watching her favorite shows. She gets up and plays every once in a while when she feels up to it. She saw me with my camera and said "mommy take Bay's pic"

This past Saturday was beautiful! So we went to the park and played. Bailey had a blast on the slide and playing with her bike. We ran into some other friends that she had a good time playing with too.

Austin chilled with mommy and slept a LOT

Bedtime Silliness

I love being able to put Austin in some of the same outfits that Bailey wore. Now I'm not talking anything pink and frilly ;)

Here's a picture of a little sleeper that says "Born to go to Tennessee"
Bailey was 3 months old and Austin is 2 months old. It fits them about the same! Austin is a good pound more than Bailey was at this age.

Since I was taking Austin's picture, Bailey had to get in. But she wanted to pose with her babies. She said "ok puppy, Mommy said chee" Then she gave a nice little fake smile for me.

She was trying to get Austin to smile for me, but he wasn't in the mood.

Being her silly self! Notice anything missing?? We have been going without pabi for about a week now. She can have it at nap time and bed time, but only if she asks for it. She's done GREAT and willingly gives it up when she wakes up. Now she just bites her bottom lip and scrapes her teeth. You can kind of see where she's doing it.

I finally got a tiny bit of a smile. I think he's ready to go to sleep.

We're doing pretty good. We spend our days trying to get into a good routine. I'm trying to balance playtime and cleaning time. Bailey is doing good and laying down for nap time when I tell her to. Austin went for his check-up on Wednesday and got his shots. So he's been pretty cranky and cuddly since then. He is now 10 lbs and 21 inches long. He's getting to be a little chunker!
