6 months

We went to the doctor for our 6 month appointment today. Bailey weighs 17 lbs and is  25.2 inches long. 38th percent for height and 64th for weight. She is definitely more proportioned than her sister! She got four shots and cried, but was easily consoled. She hasn't slept well today and just went down for a nap at 4:30! Hopefully she will still go to bed tonight :)

  • She is rolling over both ways and has started getting into stuff. It's not safe to leave her on the floor for long periods of time. I think she will be crawling soon. She has started rocking a little on all fours. 
  • She is still stubborn about going to bed at night and screams, but hasn't mastered the art of falling asleep unaided. I got the go ahead from the doc to let her cry by herself. So poor thing, she doesn't know what is coming!
  • She still doesn't like the bottle. We have wasted more formula on her b/c we make a bottle and then have to throw it out b/c she won't take it. At least most of it has been given to us as samples from friends!
  • Bailey is becoming very social. She doesn't like to be left in a room by herself. She is very thoughtful and likes to people watch.
  • I just moved her into 12 month clothes. Crazy huh? I tried on some 9 month stuff and it is snug so onto the next size.
  • She is trying to sit up. She can do it for 15-20 seconds at a time and then falls on her face. Its kind of funny to watch, but she usually cries.
  • Kylee is very sweet to make sure that Bailey always has a toy. Bailey likes to suck on Kylee's silkies and Kylee always takes them away.
  • She still eats every 3-4 hours and wakes up 1-2 times a night. I am thankful that she usually goes back to sleep, but looking forward to the day when she doesn't wake up at all!
I can't believe Bailey is already 6 months old. It seems like she just got here and now she is half a year. We are so thankful for our happy and joyful baby. Her smile brightens my day in an instant.

Here are some recent pictures:

We survived!!

Well our first week of preschool was last week. Both of my girls are going with me :) Kylee is in a 2's class and Bailey is in the tiny class. Here are some pictures of them on their first day. I didn't get to drop Kylee off so I don't have a picture of her with her teacher.

We have been busy the past couple of weeks. We got to go see Barnum and Bailey's circus in Austin in August. This is the circus that I used to go to when I was little. I was excited for Bryan and Kylee to get to see it. My mom was sweet and watched Bailey for us while we went to the show. It's really different watching the circus as an adult. I was thinking the whole time about how all of the performers could easily fall/injure themselves. It took some of the magic out of the show, but I still enjoyed it! Kylee thought that there would be ladybugs at the circus. When it was over Kylee asked, "Where are the ladybugs?" I replied, "They must be at the zoo."
Kylee was wiped out!
We also got to take the girls to the Cameron Park Zoo in Waco. It was a good time. Great weather and the girls had a blast. Kylee was determined to find those ladybugs at the zoo. These are the only ones that we found.

Bailey's first time to the park by our house. She was like her sister, she cried when I stopped the swing.

Kylee still loves to swing. I'm kind of thankful that we don't have one in our backyard b/c she would ask me all day to go outside and swing.
