One MOre MOnth...

That's right, Bailey's 1 year mark is only 1 MONTH away....CRAZY! I have been so bad this month about taking pictures around the house, so I don't have many pics to show for Month 11. There has not been a lot of changes this month, but there has been some BIG ones...so here is the list.

  • Will "woof" when you ask what a doggy says or when she sees Bronco...sounds like "woowoowoo"
  • Is trying & actually eating some BIG people food (apple slice, french fry)...this is a big step for us
  • Has 6 teeth
  • Dances when she hears music, but Mickey Mouse Clubhouse & Little Einstein are still her favs
  • Baby talks up a storm, and trys to say certain words...but they just aren't that recognizable yet
  • Loves to open & close the shutters
  • Will say what sounds like whoa or oooh, with the cutest rounded mouth
  • Loves to open & close things, and is starting to put things in & take them out
  • Points at things she wants
  • Loves going on bike rides
  • SHE'S WALKING!!!!!

(Sorry the lighting is a little funky)

This last week she has been two or three steps, but she was still a little nervous to really let go and WALK. I don't know what changed, but yesterday when we got home from church she decided it was GO TIME! All of a sudden she was taking 8-10 steps at a time so we pulled out the video camera to document this momentous occasion. I think my favorite part about this is that she claps for herself after she falls down...so proud of herself. She is definitely crawling more then walking, but as Clint would says, "It's only just begun!"

Coming out of Quarantine

I will hopefully have an update soon, but for now here are two new things and why the posting was put on hold. A week after we got back from Utah Bailey woke up around 1:30am with a fever of 101 degrees. After a rough day I decided to take her in to the doctor's and as luck would have it the double ear infection either came back or didn't go away the first time. So we got a stronger medication and went on our way, but when she had a fever of 102-103 for the next three days we paid the doc another visit. He thought she was okay, but just to be sure he sent us to get her a chest x-ray to rule out pnemonia. The results came back, and sure enough she had it. What would make this situation even better you wonder....how about you throw in a case of mastitis for me (awesome!!!). All this was happening while my mom was visiting too, which was great to have the help in the middle of the night, but sad that we didn't get more time for projects. Anyways, we have been medication and are all feeling better, so like I said hopefully I will be able to get some posts up soon. Until then here are a couple fun things...
  • Now that the weather has started to cool off a little here we took Bailey on her 1st Bike ride
  • She started clapping today...so fun!
