6 months ago (this coming Monday) my heart grew two sizes. It grew one size for Bailey entering my world, and it grew one size for seeing Adam becoming a great father and an even greater husband. I had no idea that my capacity to love would become so greatly increased. But for the last 6 months, I have been amazed at the ability for my heart to keep growing and loving.
I love my little family more than anything else in the entire world. I have difficult days sometimes sure, like when I am running on little sleep, or when I know Bailey is going through some growth and she is cranky or in pain. But I am so many more fantastic days that erase those difficult days from my memory. Bailey is such a happy baby. She is so fun and loving and spunky. She loves things to go fast: whether in the stroller, or the carts at the store, or the car. She is going to be my little adrenaline junkie (I am already going grey I can feel it lol). She lets me know when she is tired by either putting her head on my chest/shoulders, or she will grab my face with her hands and put her forehead against mine. It melts my heart every time. When I get her from a nap she greets me with a huge grin from ear to ear. Every single time. Without fail. When she gets excited sometimes she cant contain herself and she will dive into me. When putting her to bed I rock her and sing/hum to her, and she will sing/hum with me. Adam and I both have a tune we like to sing to her that she loves, but lately she’s also loving the song “Angel” by Sarah Mclachlan that I randomly had stuck in my head one day haha. She is so intrigued with nature; trees in particular. She will just sit and look at trees all day long. She loves being outside for sure, and people watching haha. I feel like I can take her anywhere. She just loves being included in things, so whether it is going to the store, going out to eat, or an activity we do…she just enjoys being there with us. She just recently started getting up on her hands and knees. She hasn’t quite figured out how to go forward just yet haha she still scoots backwards, but I am sure it’s coming soon. Bailey looooooves music. Loves it. She loves hearing Adam sing especially, that is her favorite 🙂
I just love my little girl so much. Having a family is the best thing ever. In fact, Adam and I have even talked about when we want to further expand our little family, and it looks like we will be trying again when Bailey is a little over 1 year old. I hope it won’t take as long to get pregnant this next time as it did with Bailey, specially since we want our kids to be pretty close together, but I trust that the Lord has his timing in everything. If he wants me to pregnant tomorrow he will make it happen haha, but for right now, that is Adam and I’s tentative plan 🙂 I love being a Mommy and a Wife. I wouldn’t trade those hats for anything in the world. 🙂
Btw I have tonnnnns of pics to include. We went to Maxey park a few times (where Bailey sneeze shot her binky into the lake haha) and we went camping for the first time and Bailey had a blast! We even carved our little pumpkin there lol. (although it got super freezing at night and I was worried about keeping Bailey warm enough, so we left at like 3am lol) and we went to the pumpkin trail where they have lots of carved pumpkins from the community. It was really cool, although it was Bailey’s bedtime, so she was a little unimpressed lol. It has been fun exploring the community more and bringing Bailey to parks and soaking up the Texas sunshine 🙂 I am enjoying my life 🙂 (I also included a picture that my grandma shared with me of when I was a little kid, wearing my mom’s shoes :))
