New blog...

We have officially moved to a new blog that is a little more fitting to our current lives.  Hopefully I'll be better about updates.  :-)  It will be "invite only" so just let me know if you want to view it, and I'll put your name on the list.  The new blog is  Never thought we'd say...  Enjoy the glimpse into our crazy lives!

Okay, I know, I know...

So obviously I have completely neglected the blog. I had a friend (thanks Courtney) mention that my ticker said I was 43 weeks pregnant, so I decided it may be time to update a little. We have been toying with the ideas of either starting a new blog with a more appropriate title or stopping the blog thing all together since I just can't seem to do it all.
It has been crazy around here, and when I say crazy, you're just going to have to believe me. Cold and flu season hit our family very hard.
We did welcome our newest addition to the Bailey house about 1 month ago. Anna is such a sweetheart, and we are so grateful for her. Although Noah is a little frustrated with the crying, he is a fantastic big brother and a huge help to me. So, I'll leave you with a few pictures, since that is really all anyone looks for... :-)

Our new family of 4. I think this is around 4 hours after Anna entered the world. Noah came to the hospital with Nana as soon as we were settled in our room. Noah had his "big brother" scrubs and his "big brother" camera. He was ready for the occasion.


Noah and Anna on Valentine's Day. What a fantastic big brother. He is so gentle when he holds her. He even likes to give her a bottle every once in a while.


Anna's 1 month picture. Isn't she just beautiful? (We're a little partial.)

Noah has an announcement!

He is going to be a big brother!!! The newest little Bailey is due in January. I know that a lot of you have been waiting for this post and/or wondering why I haven't been blogging in months...well now you know. We are so excited about our new addition! Hopefully some of the yucky 1st trimester stuff will end soon, and I will get better about posting about Noah's fun adventures. I know that I have a lot of catching up to do. :-) So here is the baby's blog debut. This picture is from my Dr's visit this past Monday.

Third of the March Posts...Smoke monsters

Noah got pretty sick in March. He was coughing, wheezing, and his asthma was acting up a bit...so he had to use his breathing machine 3 times a day for a while. Well, it has been a while since we've had to pull out the torture machine. I had to basically wrestle with Noah for 10 minutes to do 1 treatment...fyi wrestling isn't so good for coughing and wheezing. When Chris got home I told him that I just didn't know how I was going to make Noah do the machine 3 times a day. Well, of course, leave it to Daddy to make a "torture machine" fun. That's how Chris and Noah invented the Smoke Monster. While on the nebulizer, they will sit on the couch and be very calm until someone (me) walks into the room. Then Chris counts to 3 and they ROAR at the person. Smoke comes out of the mask...of course a little medicine is lost, but a lot more gets in than with my wrestling technique. It's really funny to have a masked 2 year old roaring at you.

Second of the March Posts...big trucks and beautiful grass

We also sodded our front yard in the month of March. Most of the yard was dead and our front and back yards were different types of grass, and the list goes on, but anyway...

Noah thought it was the best time of his life. We had a Bobcat at our house for 2 days, a dump truck for a morning, and a yard full of dirt for a whole day. There is nothing cooler for a 2 year old boy. I actually picked Noah up early from school so that he wouldn't miss the dump truck. :-) He sat on the front porch for hours. I brought him his lunch out there because he didn't want to miss a thing. Needless to say, there were no naps those 2 days. Here are some pictures from the big event, and thanks to the large amounts of rain that we have been getting, it still looks great!

Before and After...actually the grass is even greener now!

First of the March Posts...time with friends

We spend a lot of our time playing with friends...always a good time.

If you can't tell, we are pretty much regulars at the Georgia Aquarium. It is such a priviledge to have it nearby.

February fun...

Well, since we have had so much going on and I haven't been blogging as I should. (the story of my life...) I thought that I would do Feb. and March as 1 post each with a brief glimpse of the events from those months. I will try to give a little more attention to the events over the last couple of weeks. I hope that you don't mind...

The 2nd half of February was kind of a blur. Abby was sick for most of February, which was pretty draining on all of us, physically and emotionally. (not to mention financially ;-) ) We did have fun in February as well... We went over to South Carolina to celebrate Ninen and Grandaddy's 60th anniversary and 80th birthdays. (That was Valentine's Day/ President's Day weekend.) It was a great time...here is a little slide show of the fun we had at the celebration.

Also, Noah turned 2 1/2 in February. He had his "Special Day" at school! Chris and I brought cupcakes to the class and stayed to hangout for a bit. They do a "Special Day Dance" with streamers...so cute. Apparently Noah really gets into it. He's such a funny little man.

Noah cheesing for the camera

This is the beginning of the "Special Day Dance." Everybody has streamers and runs in a circle. Noah thinks it's the best thing ever.

Noah's new aquatic friend...

I just thought that this picture was too cute not to post. We go to the Georgia Aquarium quite a bit; I think Noah is beginning to make friends.

I'll work on getting the other pictures from the last month posted.
