We got to spend the first half of September enjoying spending time with Matt before he had to go out of town for 6 weeks. Labor day weekend we went down to Virginia Beach to spend time with friends and took Bailey to her first baseball game.
She wasn't too sure about the Fireworks after the game :)
This is such a rare occurrence now I had to document it. Little Miss never sits still for more than 30 seconds!
Now that Bailey is getting older, it's harder and harder to find ways to entertain her for more than 3o seconds. I've started getting creative :) So we built a FORT!
She played in the fort for over an HOUR! I consider that a success!! :)
This is why I don't blog as often :)
Whenever Bailey is awake this is what happens when I am on the computer. I'm lucky my screen doesn't have teeth marks yet!
Food is becoming such a big part of our day! I spend hours trying to figure out what to feed Bailey. I was determined that she would not be a picky eater. I failed miserably lol. She refuses to eat anything green. I can't get her to eat a noodle to save my life! (Is she my child?!) She actually turned up her nose at mac n cheese. I take that back... she sucked the cheese sauce off and then spit out the noodle. Goober. Some things she WILL eat (since that list is much shorter lol) Chicken, toast, yogurt, cheese, pears, peaches, bananas, goldfish, sweet potatoes, cheerios, puffs, grilled cheese, occasionally a green bean or two, we found out tonight she loves Saltines, she loves juice, and she still nurses a few times a day. At this point I try to get her to at least try what we're eating and then go from there. I'm trying to expand her palate so we'll see what we can get her to eat next! Sometimes it takes me so long to get my dinner, her dinner and Betty's dinner ready... this is what we end up with:
Or when she's really just OVER IT... I get this :)
Matt had a whole week off from work before he had to leave for West Virginia, so we decided to have a week of fun! We took Bailey to Maymont :)I didn't realize until we'd taken a bunch of pictures that Bean had left drool on the lens of my camera when she was chewing on it =/ So there are some blurry pics, but they're too cute not to include!
I almost forgot- Bailey loooves Graham Crackers. Her first experience with them didn't go so well (video here) but now she would eat a whole package in a day if I let her.
I have never seen anybody sleep as silly as little Miss Bean does :)
Anyone who has ever been around kids for any amount of time knows what it means when the baby gets quiet. Find out what they're doing QUICKLY!!! This is what I found :)
Apparently tissues are AWESOME. She does the same thing with toilet paper and every now and then I'll find a little trail of it around the house.
Grammie and Grampa got Bailey a toy to ride on. Of course I said, "Oh no way she's big enough for something like that"... boy was I wrong! She LOVES it! Not as much to sit on it... but to push it around and play with it. I can't believe she's big enough for a toy like this!!
We went out to celebrate a friend's birthday and got all dressed up as a family :) The weather finally got a little cool and it is so fun to dress my mini-me :)
Oh how much we missed Daddy when he had to leave after all of the fun we had when he was off for a week!
