What a blessing!

I have to say that Mark, Bailey, and I are truly blessed to have such amazing family! It is hard to travel and see everyone, but it is well worth it. When all the hustle and bustle of Christmas is gone, your family is what holds you together! I feel so lucky!

Bailey and my grandfather, "great daddy". She loves him and talks about him a lot.
All the cousins playing outside in the beautiful weather!

Bailey and Aunt Martha Wayne.

Bailey and the Pridemore family.

My sisters and the babies.

Brenda, MW, Bailey, me, and mom.

"Kissing cousins"...:)
Our sweet family.

Bailey has her first "crush" on Isaac. She is just taken with him! So cute...

A fun Christmas...

What a fun Christmas for Bailey! She loved all her gifts and really enjoyed unwrapping them!

Her first "big girl potty". We are going to attempt to start potty training...

Rocking with her dog.
Santa was good to Bailey, maybe not as good as Mamaw and Papaw...:)

Bailey also got a second potty. She will be set for success!

She loves her slide. It will bring hours of entertainment inside!

Bailey got a kitchen with lots and lots of accessories. What fun!!!

A born cook for sure. It runs in the family...:)

18 Months

Bailey is 18 months old. We cannot believe it. She had her 18month check up with Dr Barnes this morning and everything went great. She weighed 23# 5.5 oz (36%) and was 31 inches long (31%). Her ears were clear, and of course, she is speaking more words than normal, our little genius...:) She had 2 shots and got over them quickly. She even told the nurse "thank you " when she walked out of the room. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

Another first!

Since Bailey has had tubes in her ears for almost 9months now, I have always been careful when washing her hair. But not tonight, I put those plugs in and dumped water over her head. And you know, she didn't really care. Another milestone, although little to most, a fairly big deal to me!

Cute video...

Bailey is totally into her bath these days and loves to run around naked afterwards. I did get a diaper on her for this clip. But as you will see, she is beginning to figure out how to take that off. Enjoy!

It is hard to keep a girl inside...

Here are some more pictures from Saturday night. Bailey insisted on going back outside after dinner. So, we just bundled her up and let her go...

Outdoor Fire...

As many of you know, Mark loves to build a fire. Since our fireplace is gas, he is forced to build them outside. So, that is exactly what he did the afternoon. Bailey enjoyed going around saying "fire, fire". She also swung on the "big girl" swing for the first time. She was so proud of herself. It was actually not too chilly outside this afternoon and we were able to play on the playground.

Hanging out with Papaw!

Man, Bailey loves her Papaw. He came to visit this week and Bailey loved it. She is always bringing me the phone and saying, "Papaw". Now if we could just get her to talk to him when we call...

Mandarin oranges and oreos...

Yes, that is what Bailey ate for dinner tonight. Bailey is generally a great eater, but she has her moments now and then. As a mom, I have done some many things that I never thought I would do, like...give my child oreos for dinner. But hey, at least she had some oranges to go with it...

Bailey with the evidence written all over her face!

Giving some good night kisses to daddy...

Sweet little girl laying on the couch. She is definitely tired, she doesn't lay often...:)

Christmas Brunch...

Today Bailey and I went to Sarah's for a fabulous Christmas brunch. I guess you could say that this is our third annual brunch with the folks I work with. It is so fun to get together outside of work.

Here is Cade Keeton, Bailey, and Graham Moffett.

Bailey showing off in her cute "baby leg" socks!

Up goes the tree!

Well our tree is up! Bailey actually didn't try to destroy it! I put all the non-breakable ornaments at the bottom so she could play with them. She really enjoys looking at the lights on it!

I don't really know what she is doing, but it was a cute pic!

She is admiring the thumb print ornament she made at Fantasy of Trees.
