My sweet Bailee

The last time I saw Bailee was in October when I flew out to California to babysit for my daughter and son-in-law while they attended a Marine Ball. Bailee was just turning 1 year old and was so attached to her momma that everytime I watched her that week all she did was scream herself to sleep. I felt so bad for her because she couldn't stand to be out of her momma's sight.

That has all changed now! We were pleasantly surprised 2 weeks ago to find out that Tina and Bailee were making a "surprise" visit into town. Bailee LOVES us again!! She cries when WE walk away from her and wants US to constantly pick her up. It was so awesome havign them home for a short visit! Unfortunately this visit came at the same time Greg and I went on our marriage retreat but it allowed Tina & Bailee to go visit other family in town while we were out of town.

Bailee gets her blue eyes from me - her Yaya. She loves to see herself in the camera and video camera after I take pictures and video of her. She is 15 months old and chattering away non-stop.

Tina and I managed to go out one night by ourselves while she was in town. We left Bailee with Tina's mother-in-law. Tina was worried about how Bailee would get along without her for the evening but she was fast asleep when we got back to the house to pick her up. We went and saw the movie "Fool's Gold" with Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson. (It was a cute movie but too much foul language for my taste - I really don't like movies that use the Lord's name in vain repeatedly.)

Tina and her sweet baby girl the day before they leave town. She has a flight at 6:00 a.m. Saturday to go back home. It certainly is going to be quiet around here with little chatterbox gone!!

Bailee-boo crawled right up into bed with Pops her first night here and took his remote control away, pulled up the covers and got settled in like she had found her spot to sleep.

I think Bailee's 2nd most favorite person here in Pensacola is her Uncle Dakota. She followed him around from room to room to room. If he stopped long enough, her little arms went up just begging him to pick her up....and he always obliged.

We have a Baylee (with a "y" instead of an "i") and she's almost 11 years old.
