Unwanted Guest

This weekend we were house sitting for my parents while they went to the coast. Bailey is always so excited to go and play with the dogs. It is so extremely hard to get her down for a nap because she is always so over stimulated. After trying for a few hours, we got her down for a nap on my parents bed. About 30 minutes later, she was awake again and crying. What the heck woke her up? I went in the room and saw that she had an unwanted guest next to her. Can you see her visitor?

Here's another look

It was my parents chihuahua, Tink! She decided that she was cold and wanted to cozy next to Bailey! Man, we had to start all over!

Valentines Day Surprise

Since Valentines Day was on Saturday, we were planning a family day then hanging out with friends in the evening, but Bailey had a surprise for us...she got the flu. She ended up throwing up all day and night. Yuck! It was the first time she has been sick since she was born so we had a rough time. It has now been 4 hours since she has thrown hopefully, she is getting better (Although we did get to miss church today and relax a bit!)

It's my party and I'll....

play if I want to! We had Bailey's Birthday party at my parents house on Saturday. She had her aunt and Uncle and new baby Cousin Aaron there, along with the Reeds (YEAY) 1st Birthday Parties are actually not very fun or amusing, but we got a kick out of it ( and it was an excuse to play games and eat cake). Bailey really did not care about presents or even the cake- she ended up throwing it on the floor for the dogs to eat! But she had a great time with all the attention, new people and dogs to play with...

Here is Uncle Matt, Aunt Brandy and new cousin Aaron- 2 1/2 weeks old

Bailey wanted to make sure Aaron was alive, so she is poking his cheek!

Bailey's good friend Gina...

And her new friend Brian (she sat on his lap and had a great time with him)

Bailey's cake...or just the plate

Happy Birthday Bailey

Bailey's birthday isn't until tomorrow, but we just got back from getting her pictures so I had to post them! Her hair is kinda crazy, but it's always like that since we are trying to let it grow.

And we snuck in one Valentines background, but she didn't smile!

Sad, Sleepy Mommy

When Bailey was about 2 months old, she went from her Bassinett into...not the crib, but mommy and daddy's bed. I guess I was just lazy, but she would sleep all night when she was next to me and it was so easy. Well, it is now catching up to me. Lately she has had awful sleep habits. Last night she did not go to bed until after 2am. She was crawling around and banging on the walls and was so hyped up. So we thought today she would be exhuasted. Well, it is now 9:50 pm and she has not slept all day (no nap). I FINALLY had it and could no longer take her crankiness, so I put her in her crib and shut the door. It has now been an hour and she is still crying and it makes me so sad. I want to just go get her and give her a big hug but I know that this will be better in the long run. If anyone has any advice on bed time...PLEASE tell me. This is harder than I thought!
