Almost 20 months old

Bailey seems like she’s growing an inch a week. She’s getting so big, and heavy! Time is flying. She’s into all kinds of new things, and is loving exploring just about everything. We got her a new Little Tykes car, and she loves sitting and “driving.” So cute. And she’s also gotten to play in the pool a few times a week now for a couple of months. She loves the water, and loves Daddy to pick her up and throw her. No fear at all! Her language skills are great – she’s putting 3 words together now, and she can identify most animals now on sight. She can tell you what sound many animals make, too.

The cutest thing that happened recently was when we were at Nana’s house, and Bailey saw their dog, Sophie, eating her dog food. Bailey was perplexed and her Dad said, “Yep, the dog didn’t say the blessing before eating.” And Bailey exclaimed, “Amen Doggie!” She will not live that down. It was adorable and had us all howling. She loves to wrestle and horseplay, and gets a kick out of laying on top of our cat. He’s very tolerant of her. She loves her cousins, and is particularly fond of Madie and Chloe. She’s really taken to them.

It’s cute to watch her look up to them and want to do all the things they’re doing. Bailey’s feeding herself as well, and tells you when she’s ready for bed. Imagine that! She also comes up to me, saying, “Momma, diaper dirty.” Time for potty training!Our little princess is totally aware of what’s going on. What’s been amazing to see is how much love she has in her heart. She is such a sweet, caring, child. Very sensitive and loving. But then again, she’s easy to love! Here are some recent pictures.

19 months

Hard to believe almost a month has gone by since my last entry. Time is a flyin! Bailey is doing so much these days, and still changing so fast. Her language skills are growing by leaps and bounds. She now says “Hello, Kitty Cat,” ” Baby go nite nite,” “Want blankey, Mama” and more. She’s putting 3-4 words together now, and is very clear on what she does (and doesn’t) want. Her attachments are cute – she loves her pacifier and her blanket, especially for comfort during naps or night time sleep.

She’s now used to her crib tent, and we sleep peacefully knowing she can’t get out of her crib and wander around at night. She is such a little monkey – she is climbing on everything! The coffee table, her high chair, our dining room table, you name it. She is not scared, and is a bit of a daredevil trying to jump off of things. It’s gonna be interesting the next few months! She’s gotten to spend lots of time with her cousins, and she enjoys them so much. She’s enamored with all the things they do, and I know she can’t wait to be bigger so she can play more with them. They fawn all over her and love on her, which is so sweet. She enjoys every second of attention!
