Movin' & Groovin'

Since last I have posted several things have happened:

1. We celebrated the 4th of July with family
2. Bailey has become an expert walker
3. Bailey went to his friend, Aidan's birthday party
4. Two of Bailey's top molars have broken through
5. Bailey's cousins have moved into our neighborhood

On the fouth we went to the Concert in the Gardens and it was really great! My Aunt Donna took everyone. Bailey's second cousin, Nora was in town, so Bailey had another baby to hang out with. Don't they look cute?

Dallas and Nora were in town for a week, so the kids had several opportunities to play together. I think they had a great time!

Bailey is walking with no trouble now. He can even walk well with shoes on. I think he will be running soon because he tries to go so fast! He is really enjoying this new level of mobility! He also just got his first two molars. I am very excited about this because meat will be easier for him to eat. It takes him so long to chew meat (especially chicken) so I am hoping this will speed up the chewing process for him.

Our family went to Houston over the weekend to visit Chris, Theresa and Aidan. It was Aidan's first birthday party. It was great to see them and their new house! We really enjoyed getting to visit and watch the boys play. One of the toys Aidan got was a motorized ATV for children. Aidan was not too interested in it, but Bailey thought it was the BEST thing EVER!

Jay's sister, Julie and her family bought a house one street behind us! We are so excited! Now, Bailey and Andrew are getting to play together all the time! Also, it's great for last minute babysitting! So, as you can see, it's been a very busy month and it's only half over!

Our Beach Vacation

Wow, I didn't realize it had been almost 1 month since I last posted! We got back from our vacation last week. We had a wonderful time! It was so relaxing! Me, Jay, Bailey, Julie, Ava, Andrew, Jim & Barbie drove down to Port Aransas and spent 3 days just hanging out at the beach, the pool and the condo. It rained on Saturday, but we really enjoyed being lazy in the condo. It was a large, 3 bedroom, 2 bath condo so there was more than enough room for all of us. It had a full kitchen so we were able to cook some of our meals.

The kids had a great time too! Andrew was scared of the ocean, but loved the sand. Bailey did not like the sand at first, but quickly warmed up to it. He was very cautious of the ocean at first, but ended up enjoying it. Both boys LOVED the pool and Ava was unaware of both:)

Bailey is walking like crazy now. He has been for a few weeks. He will revert back to crawling when speed is his main concern! Enjoy the slideshow!
