Taking care of babies

Bailey is showing her nurturing side. She has two dolls that are babies and she loves to hold them and love on them. This morning, her dad showed her how to check for a “stinky diaper.” I’m not sure what’s funnier – the idea that daddy did that or that Bailey also sniffed the plastic baby. So funny!

The coffee table is the main attraction at the moment. We have to get on to her about climbing up on it. She is definitely part monkey, and wants to climb anything, as most parents of children this age can attest. You have to keep up with her or else she’s on top of something else! She’s so curious. She also climbs into the toy chest and starts funneling toys out onto the floor, as if she’s sorting them. It’s so cute.

She’s been working on saying “cupcake,” “tractor,” and “bird” this week. Cupcake she says very well, surprisingly. She’s also learning how to blow kisses, and she gives kisses to all her cousins too.

Snow cute!

15 months chatter chatter chatter

Bailey is talking up a storm these days! She seems to be learning new words by the minute. It’s adorable. Here’s a laundry list of most of the words she’s saying so far: amen, bless-shoo, angel, pease (for please), gata (for gator), nana, papa, Abby, Madie, Nic (her cousins), water, hot, mah (for more), night night, fish, bird, fog (for frog), moo, ruff ruff (dog sound), etc.

Her 15 month well visit at the pediatrician’s office last week went well. She’s still tracking to be very tall: 5’8″ or 5’9″ and she is 90% for height, 65% for weight and her head size is 75%. She’s healthy and all looks good!

She had a great time this weekend playing at Nana’s. Lots of new things to discover, and she loves and misses her Nana. They have a special bond. Next weekend she’ll get to see her Uncle, which will be a welcome treat for her, too. I know she enjoys all the noises her Uncle makes to entertain her!

Bailey has made great strides in her climbing skills as of late. She’s trying to get on top of everything, from her high chair to the dining room table and the coffee table. We’re constantly on to her and telling her to “sit” because we don’t want her falling. Try reasoning with a 15 month old! It’s never a dull moment. But she is such a joy to be with, and her smiles and laughs melt our hearts. We love her so much!
