Bailey has been sleeping A LOT lately! Here is how she likes to sleep. She scrunches her little face right up against her bed (or ours depending on where she's sleeping) lol.

Ok, First, I would like to say that I wish I could enjoy my summer break. I have still been SO busy that I never sit down to relax. Zach told me that I need to rest but honestly, taking care of a baby is NO less work than teaching all day. Also, I had my "ever-so-fun" yearly check Wednesday. Apparently I have a lump that needs to be looked at. I'm not too worried about it but it's just one more thing that has to be done. The nurse called back yesterday and said that my pap was irregular too. GEEZ can't a girl get some good news! Anyway, they called me in some medicine and I should be fine in a week. Luckily, though we are NOT pregnant again much to my mothers-in-law dismay! I guess that is the good news I need. Bailey learned some new "tricks" this week. She can now reach for you and she has almost rolled from tummy to back. Yes, she can roll over but not from tummy to back yet. It's hard when you are as chunky as she is! My mom told me today that the day before my first birthday I was 29.5 inches long and weighed 23.2 pounds. So, I don't feel too bad about "little" B since she is already 27 inches and weighs 22 pounds. She's doing a lot better on our new schedule. I have her down to only 3 bottles per day (4 oz each) and then 12 oz throughout the night. She LOOOOOVES peaches so she is content to eat her baby food during the day. I always make her eat veggies first but she's always excited to have her fruits next. I guess that's all for now. Talk with you all soon.

Happy 5 Month Birthday, Bailey

SO, today is Bailey's 5 month birthday. Yesterday she weighed in at a whopping 22.3 pounds (minus the 4 ounce bottle she chugged on the way into the doctor's office). Of course, I had to deal with the CRAZY nurse who insisted on "breast stimulation" the first time I ever saw her. Needless to say, we asked not to have to use her again but she just happened to be the "happy, available, weigh-in nurse" yesterday. At least it wasn't as horrible dealing with her only for a weight check. Anyway our chunky monkey is 27 inches long and just as cute as ever. She has however, decided that it is fun to throw a fit when she is sleepy. Oh dear, my child has a temper like her father. When she is sleepy but doesn't want to sleep, she bites her fist and yells at me. Sometimes I laugh and then she laughs and we repeat as many times as necessary before I can't take it anymore and I have to put her in her bed to cry it out. We love her though. Having a baby is the best experience I have ever had.

Ok, I am selling AVON now. I like to call it "please support the diaper and formula fund" :) Anyway, I'm working on getting an online store. For now, if you would like to order something please go to and send me the product number. You pay when the stuff comes.

Estes intro

Hey everyone!
Now that it's summer time (HALLELUJAH) I've decided to try to keep up a blog on my small little family. As most of you know, I was married to Zach in July 2005. We recently had our first child. She is the most adorable, precious, loving, (need I go on) baby ever! We are so in love with her! Bailey Grace was born in January. I'll post pictures and more blogs soon! For now, if you want to hear all about the pregnancy go to and view mommye2b. That was my pregnancy blog.
Love to all!
