Bailey gives hugs and kisses these days. You can ask her for a kiss, and she leans forward in anticipation, and will give you a kiss. She also will come up to us and hold her arms outstretched and give us her own version of a hug. It is so sweet, and it melts your heart.
She still loves digging up the fake moss in our silk plants, and has a new fetish for stealing shoes out of the closet and hoarding her blankets. She will try and grab 5-8 of them (they’re bigger than she is) and she balls them all up and holds on to them, waddling away. It’s precious. We call her “the thief.” She’s so quick; it’s blink and you’ll miss it snatching!
Bailey’s been working on her words. She says “hot” and tries to say “water” (though it’s garbled). She also does her own version of “woof woof” when she sees a dog. Hilarious. Her main word right now is “hot” and she walks around saying it all day long, very proud of herself.
Hard to believe she’ll be 1 year old in just a few short days… my how time has flown! It’s been such an adventure, and every day with her has been a blessing. She’s truly our miracle child, and we cannot believe how much we love her.
