On Saturday, Toni built her a lounging area and she loved it!
Just to prove that I did go to the beach with Bailey and not just drop her off all day :)I just thought that this was hilarious, but Bailey didn't agree with me. She looks like an old fashioned girl wearing a swimcap.
My Little Professor:
My second day of school, Bailey had her third eye doctor appointment. I was hopeful that it would be good news, but the verdict is glasses. Our doctor said that we could wait until December, so I am. But the glasses are going to come whether I like it or not. One of the moms from my field hockey team works for a kid eye doctor, so she brought me some sample glasses so I could start to visualize what she'll look like. What do you think?
I know once we find a pair that fits her and take the stickers off, she'll be the cutest tiny professor that you've ever seen. I just think that she's already the cutest thing you've ever seen, so I'm a little sad. I'm also really worried about her keeping them on her face, but the doctor assures me that she'll be so amazed at how well she can see that she'll keep them on. She's far-sighted, so she can see everything. She'll just encounter a hard time keeping her eyes focused when she looks at things upclose--meaning without glasses, she'll have a hard time learning to read. I know that it's a good thing and for everything else that could have gone wrong with Bailey being so early, this really isn't a big deal, but it's still hard for me.
18 Months Old (now 19):
Last month we took Bailey to get pictures for her 18 month old pictures. She's now 19 months old, so that's how fast time flies! I put her in her adorable sailor dress. When we got to the studio, they had this awesome motorcycle for kids. While we waited, we let Bailey be a biker babe.
I truly can't believe how big Bailey is! I love this stage of little kids because they are learning new things everyday. She runs around and tries to repeat lots of words. Her vocabulary consists of: mama, dada, Doby, bye, hi, night night, happy, up, down, jump, lots of animal sounds, and lots of jibber-jabber. I know that any second she's going to start saying everything. It also makes me kind of sad because she's not my little baby anymore--she is a big kid! She's just begun to want to do things herself instead of coming to mom for everything. I just love her more and more everyday, even when she's grumpy and teething.
