I love Sophie!

Nana got Bailey Sophie the giraffe. She arrived this week, and has been a big hit. As predicted, Bailey has been gnawing all over her, and loves it when she squeaks.

She’s had a bit of a rough week; a stomach bug we think has given her a bit of an upset belly, so she’s been vomiting and hasn’t had it easy the other way, either. She has not wanted to eat much, and has been a bit more clingy than usual. She’s slowly on the mend, but the nurse said to keep fluids down her and call if she gets a fever. At the doctor’s office she is almost 20 lbs. They will measure her at her 9 month checkup and we’ll find more about her height position then. I suspect she’s going to be pretty tall (at least now), because other babies her age are a bit smaller. But we’ll see.

Here are some pictures of Bailey enjoying Sophie, her new giraffe teething toy!

8 1/2 months, and standing on her own

Bailey is making leaps and bounds towards walking these days. She can stand on her own for a good 30 seconds, legs spread apart and planted like a sumo wrestler. She’s so funny and cracks us up with her antics. Every day brings more independence, and she is loving her newfound freedom. She is much faster at crawling now, and wanders all over the house examining everything, even a spec on the floor. We’ve nicknamed her “Eagle Eye” because she can spot the most inconspicious thing on the floor and pick it up.

The last couple of days she’s not been feeling so great, probably because of her teeth coming in. She’s not been wanting to eat as much, and she’s normally a very good eater. She’s definitely making her desires known. We are trying to give her more solid foods and crackers/biscuits, but she still plays with the food more than anything. All in due time!

She visits her pediatrician on Thursday for her shots, so we’ll have an update on her weight/height and percentiles then. Can’t wait to see how far she’s progressed!

Back from the beach

Bailey had a great week at the beach! By the time her cousins joined her in the sand and surf on Saturday, she was raring to go. We couldn’t keep her out of the water, and she loved going into the deeper waves and having me or Daddy swing her up above the waves. She laughed and squealed and loved it! She also loved her cousins playing with her in the sand, and she seemed to enjoy watching them boogie board.

We’re now back from the beach and I think there are more teeth on their way. Bailey has been biting everything uncomfortably, which makes me think she’s got more teeth coming in soon. She also bit me on the chin a couple days ago! Not on purpose, I don’t think, but it was enough for me!

She’s standing more and more on her own now, which is crazy. Steps won’t be far behind, I can feel it. She’s bound and determined to get moving. Then it’ll be crazy for sure.

Here are some recent pictures from the last few days. You can definitely see her teeth now!

All American 4th of July Girl

Bailey is having such a good time at the beach this week! When we first got here, she really wasn’t sure about the rush of the ocean waves or the crashing sound of the breakers, but by Day 3 she has definitely jumped in with both feet! She is so adorable crawling along the shoreline, discovering sea shells, lapping/tasting the water (and sand!) like a dog and enjoying the waves. She has been intrigued by a gopher turtle, fascinated by pelicans, and is interested in all the children playing in the water.

She loves the condo we’re renting. The carpet is a new thing for her since we have no carpet in our house. She crawls everywhere and is into everything — she’s pulling open cabinet doors, pulling cable wiring from behind the DVR, and has discovered that the refrigerator door opens to enticing items inside.

Bailey had a great visit with Nana and Grandpa, who came out last Sunday for the day along with Uncle Shawn and his girlfriend Danielle. She had a great time playing with them. She also had fun shopping at Ron Jon and found a colorful hippo she loves, and last night she enjoyed the pleasure of Uncle George and Aunt Lois’s company at a local seafood restaurant, where she tried to eat corn fritters and tartar sauce.

All in all, it’s been a great time thus far. Except for her nighttime sleep, where she’s been waking up in the middle of the night scared, she’s done very well!

Here are some pictures from her escapades so far!
