Long time

Ok, I know it's been a long time since I've posted. I just haven't had a lot to say. 18 days until we close on our house. 18 LOOOOONG days! We are still a little nervous with the economy the way it is, they could say "nevermind" to our loan. But, we are continuing to pray that all goes well. We bought new bedding for all of our beds. I am so excited that we will have new bedding at our new house and our guests will have nice new bedding as well. We got a great deal at Garden Ridge on bedding.

We had a very busy holiday. I think we had 5 Thanksgiving meals! Bailey has had an ear infection and was pretty cranky the entire weekend but that's understandable. We visited a lot of family and ate WAY too much. I'm very excited to get into my 2 story house. Hopefully I can get some weight off. UGH!

We took Bailey to the square in Arkansas this weekend when we visited my parents. We forgot our camera but my mom took some pictures. As soon as she finds her camera I can post them. Bailey LOOOOVES "petty lights" She loves snowmen, "santy claus" and trees. She is so much fun this year. I just love that baby girl!

Anyway, hopefully pictures will be coming soon :)

We bought a house!

I can't post pictures b/c there aren't any now that the house has a contract on it :(. But, we should have an inspection sometime this week and I asked Zach to take pictures for me to post. So, please remember to pray for us! This is a big deal :)

22 Months!

My sweet girl is 22 months today! I cannot believe how fast time has FLOWN by! She is growing by the minute! I am getting nervous about what to do for her 2nd birthday. I don't know that we will be in our own house by then and I'm wondering what I should do! AAHH!

Also, for my IF friends:
I just logged onto facebook and one of the advertisements on the sidebar said "Shady Fertility Clinic" REALLY? Yes, let me get knocked up by those "shady" people! HAHA, I just thought it was a horrible name for a fertility clinic! How would you like to go there?

The Morning Called Monday

Twas the morning called Monday
And through the commune
Not a person was stirring,
Except Bailey boo

“Milky”, she said
I pretended not to hear.
“MILKY, MILKY” she cried.
So I got off my rear.

She drank her milk
So silently and still
She’ll go back to sleep
I’m sure of it, I feel

But as soon as she finished
What did I hear?
“Wordy, Wordy, Wordy”
Right up in my ear.

“Daddy Tooted” she said
“No dear that was a snore
Now go back to sleep
We don’t get up at 4!”

Then fast as lighting
I felt her on my back
“You weady Mommy”
Hop, hop, then crack.

She hopped on my back
Then fell to the bed
I giggled at this
“Go back to sleep,” I said.

“More Milky” she asked
“No, No, not more”
“Milky”, she cried
And I walked out the door.

With milk in hand,
She played with my ear
My angel went to sleep
My sweet little dear.

By this time,
It was 5:38
I must get up!
I can’t be late.

Most mornings are like this
I cannot deny
But I cannot ignore her
Even when I try

I turned back around
And looked at her face
How could we not adore her?
Our sweet Bailey Grace.
