Doctors & Dancers

This past Thursday Bailey turned 4 months, which meant it was time for her 4 month check-up with the doctor! At 4 months Bailey wieghs 14lbs. 2oz. (67%), is 25in. long (90%), and her head is 16 1/2in round (78%). From the looks of it so far we think she has inherited my grandma's genes which will make her tall and skinny...I'm sure she'll thank me later! It has been 4 months with her and I can say that I really do love her more and more everyday, she is becoming so much fun and I know that will just keep getting better! Here are a few new things happening in Bailey's life...
  • She had a schedule and then decided it was time to change it...so she is now eating about every 4 hours.
  • Has found her upper octave and serinades us with high pitch squeals
  • Can roll from her stomach to her back, but doesn't do it very often
  • Goes to bed around 8:30pm, gets up once and then goes back to sleep til around 7:00am
  • Pushes from her elbows up to her hands while doing tummy time
  • Smiles so big every time she hears hers daddy's voice
  • Still wears 3-6 month clothes, but the 3 month stuff is getting too short for her long legs
  • Started playing in her exer-saucer and so far so good (she needs to be just a little taller and she will be bouncing away)
  • Loves facing outward in the Moby wrap...she loves to explore and watch the world around her (especially her dog Bronco at the dog park)
  • Will finally let me rock her to sleep while listening to her Baby Mine lullaby cd
  • Loves to take naps with daddy

Friday night I had the chance for a night out without the little one to see some old friends dance. This last year before Bailey came I had the oppurtunity to dance with the Ririe Woodbury Dance Company based out of Salt Lake City, UT. I was a part of a special tour that they do featuring the work of choreographer Alwin Nikolais. While dancing with them I got to perform in Wickenburg, AZ, St. Louis, MO, Philidelphia, PA, Durham, NC, and 3 cities in France! Obviously, since I had a baby I would not be able to dance with them again this year, but as luck would have it their tour brought them to AZ. The company got in on Tuesday and I picked them up in the minivan on Wednesday to meet Miss Bailey and dinner at In-N-Out. It was so great to see them all and their concert was beautiful...it made me want to get in shape so that I can start dancing again. I had such an amazing time dancing with the company and they have become some of my best friends and given me AMAZING memories!

I agree with jodee about making the pictures bigger! I really can't get enough of that belly she has! And I sure do love the cuddle monster jammies on her though!
