Getting So Smart

Bailey is always telling me stuff. What he did that day (when really it was last week), who he had fun playing with, etc. Sometimes he says stuff that never even happened. I am sure all of you with 2 year olds have experienced this.

However, Monday night we were in the car on our way home from the gym and out of the blue Bailey says: I hurt my knee at the gym. Bailey cried.

Mommy: You did? Did they kiss it and make it better?

Bailey: Yes. All Better. Bailey's ok.

I wasn't sure if this had really happened, so I looked at his knee and sure enough, it was skinned! When did he get old enough to tell me about real things that happened to him? I am glad he can tell me about things that happen when I am not there. Especially, since he is about to start back to school.

Missing his cousin

Conversation with Bailey

Mommy: Bailey, are you playing with your Legos?
Bailey: Yes, Bailey's Legos. Nora's Legos too.
Mommy: Oh, those are Nora's Legos too?
Bailey: Yes. I want to go to Nora's house.

Bailey is going through Nora detox. At least he was willing to share his Legos:)

Summer Vacation


Here are the pictures I promised.

I know it has been FOREVER since I have posted (thank you, Dallas for the reminder). We have been so busy (of course I couldn't tell you what we've been doing), and it's just slipped my mind.
I don't have time to upload pictures tonight, but I will add them tomorrow.

Last night we got back from a week long family vacation in Florida. Now, when I say family vacation, I mean it. We're talking 16 people. Aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, parents, siblings. You name them, they were there. We had a great time! We went to the beach & the pool every day, ate at some great restaraunts, took naps, and hung out. We all had a wonderful time. Bailey got to play with his cousin, Nora (who is 11 weeks older) from sun up to sun down and could not get enough of her. They got along so well and really enjoyed being together. Even though they don't see each other much, I talk frequently to Bailey about Nora and Nora's mom, Dallas, talks to Nora about Bailey, so when they are together, it's like no time has passed.

While we were in Florida my cousins informed me that I am the only person on the planet not on Facebook. Therefore, they signed me up. I am still trying to figure out how everything works, but I like being "in the loop". I didn't realize how many people I knew where on Facebook. I have only been on it about 5 days, but already I am catching up with highschool friends I haven't talked to in 10 years! It's been cool. Thanks cousins!

We survived the 15 hour drive home and even made it to church this morning. Unfortunately, our air conditioner froze up while we were trying to cool the house off last night (quite a task after being off for 8 days) & the temp. never got below 80. We turned the heat on & defrosted the unit, so hopefully that will take care of it.This afternoon, we took Bailey to our neighbor's house to swim. We had a nice little 45 minute swim and when we got out of the pool, Jay realized that he had his phone in his pocket the entire time. His $500 dollar phone! Think it's ruined? Luckily, we were smart enough to purchase the insurance on it, so for a mere $50 they are sending him a new one.

I have not even begun to unpack or do laundry, but I did get a pedicure today, so I have my priorites in order:) I promise, tomorrow I will post pictures, so be sure to check back.
