We're Walking...Sort of

On Sunday, May 20th Bailey took his first steps alone. He took 2 steps 2 different times. Of course, as soon as we grabbed the video camera he stopped. Since then he has walked 3 or 4 times, just a couple of steps each time. He will not walk on command, he has his daddy's stubborn streak :). He stands alone all the time and if he is standing and wants to get to something he will try to walk to it, but usually sits down (then claps for himself) before he reaches his intended target. I have a feeling it will still be a few weeks before he is walking routinely.

We spent the weekend at my dad's skiing with some friends. We had a great time and Bailey loved being on the boat. Luckily, this trip Jay did not break any bones (Last time Jay cracked a rib while skiing, but it didn't slow him down any). Bailey even got to ride on the intertube and Yes, I realize Bailey is wearing pink sunglasses. We forgot his and a little girl had left these in my Dad's boat.

Yesterday Bailey got his 12 month shots. 5 of them! It was not fun. Afterwards, mommy and Aunt Jill took Bailey to get ice cream at Chick-Fil-A. He seemed to feel pretty good yesterday, but today has been running a fever and has been very whinny, wanting to be held. He really wants to go outside, but it's raining, so that is not helping his mood. Luckily, no more shots for 6 months.

Birthday Boy

Friday was Bailey's first birthday. He had a great day! He had lunch with his daddy and then cake at daddy's work. Saturday was Bailey's party and we had quite the turnout! Almost 50 friends and family. It was hot, but fun. Bailey had his very own cake and ate half of it! I am NOT exaggerating!

He even fell asleep while eating it. But that didn't stop him! He was literally eating in his sleep. It was very cute!

We had a geat mother's day too. Bailey was such a sweetie all weekend!Our friends came down form Houston for Bailey's party and he had fun playing with their little boy. Enjoy the slideshow.

My kid eats poop!

We were over at our neighbors for a cookout the other night and Bailey is happily playing in the grass. I see him chewing something and assume it is leaves or grass because he is obsessed with eating both. Occasionally he gets a piece of bark in there, so I have to keep a close eye on him. So, I go over to him and stick my finger in his mouth to see what he is chewing on and ....I pulled out dog poop! I was disgusted!! Our neighbors have 2 dogs, but are always sweet enought to pooper scoop before Bailey plays outside. Clearly, they missed a piece, and out of the entire back yard, my child finds the poop.

Bailey is doing great! He is not yet walking by himself, but loves to do it if I am guiding him. He has also begun to stand alone for a few seconds at a time. He has added another word to his vocabulary. "Bye-Bye" Accompanied with a wave. Any time we go into the garage he waves and says "bye-bye".

Unfortunately, Bailey has had some wheezing problems. He has had to use a nebulizer twice since December. We are monitoring it closely and hoping it's not asthma, but will be a while before we know that.

The next time I post, Bailey will be 1 year! His birthday is Friday, the 11th. The past year has gone by so quickly, I can't even describe it! It has been a wonderful year, the best year of my life! Bailey is such an amazing blessing and I am so fortunate to be a SAHM.
