Smiling girl

Bailey is starting to smile more now and react to when we play with her. I can’t wait til she starts cooing and giggling. But her smile is precious and lights up her whole face. This weekend she hung out at Nana and Grandpa’s house and had 2 good sleep-filled car rides (a blessing compared to crying). She’s also starting (I think) to get over her stroller fear. We made it all the way around the circle in our neighborhood yesterday without her completely freaking out. She cried, but eventually fell asleep. Progress! I’ll take it.

Here’s our cutie pie happy go lucky girl on the changing table:

Sleep deprivation: Not even college prepares you for this

I’ll admit it: I’m one of those people who needs at least 8 hours of sleep to function. If I don’t get it, I’m usually a bit, well, crabby, and if I get less than 6, I’m a walking zombie. Tales of lore exist about all new parents and how the first few weeks are tough. But it’s like a secret society; no one tells you just how tough it actually is. I love my daughter immensely and I already feel that “I’d let a truck run over me to save you” feeling inside when I look at her. But sleep is of prime importance. I can’t wait til she sleeps through the night. I’m counting down the weeks until I can gradually add hours to her nighttime routine. Sleep is bliss! And yes, I’m napping when she is (mostly), though as a small business owner, those wheels are still turning and I have to manage that as well.

Speaking of our lovely daughter, she is slowly waking so here’s another picture:

Snuggle bunny!

This cooler weather is making Bailey so snuggalicious. She loves being wrapped up in her blanket while you hold her. She’s also figured out that the TV makes for interesting staring – she’s totally enraptured in the flickering lights. And… we also think we have a bit of a waterbaby; she’s in love with the sound of flowing water from our pool and the faucet. She gets entranced in it. Too funny!

Growing like a weed

Bailey is growing like a weed! It’s hard to believe she could get any cuter. She’s smiling now and loves interacting with her Dad and me. This past weekend she watched the Gator game (peacefully) with Matt and got excited when he got amped up as the Gators creamed Spurrier’s Gamecocks.

Her latest thing is to mimic your excitement towards her by mouthing a big “O” with her mouth. It’s so adorable and precious — the innocence she possesses is priceless. I’m looking forward to seeing how she continues to grow, surprise and astound us in the coming weeks. I certainly can’t wait for her to start giggling! That will be an awesome moment.

Interesting things at 3 a.m.

Wow, it’s amazing to see what’s actually on tv at 3 in the morning. Now that I’m up all hours of the night feeding our little one, I’ve been captivated by all the garbage on tv at that hour. Everything from pills promising cellulite reduction to the latest in cleaning gadgets — it’s all there. Quite funny. I don’t get into paid advertising snippets, so I’ve been watching my recorded shows on the DVR at these hours. 

Anyway, here’s a recent picture of us taken at my parent’s house. Enjoy!

She just gets cuter and cuter!

Bailey is such a cutie pie! She’s got such a great demeanor; she’s not a fussy baby at all. She sleeps well and is eating great. We’re enjoying getting to know her and she’s starting to show the cutest facial expressions. It’s been fun to watch her interact with us. Here’s a recent shot:
