I still remember the day that we brought her home from the hospital. I laid her down in her crib for the first time, sat down in the rocking chair and thought, "Now what?".
She was, and will continue to be, my first everything. My first pregnancy, my first kindergarten drop off, my first lost tooth. Watching her grow and change has been trying...but it has given me immense joy.
Bailey is beautiful on the inside and out. I couldn't ask for a better daughter to try out the pre-teen years with, for the first time.
Happy Birthday, beautiful! I love you so much!
As an added treat...a conversation at the breakfast table this morning:
Bay: (talking to Luke) "Do you know how to make pink?"
Luke: "It's not red! It's brown and..."
Bay: "No, you take red and mix it with white and that makes pink."
Me: "How do you make green?"
Luke: "It's not red!" (What does he have against red?)
Me: "Nope, it's not red. I know you know it, Bay. Ryleigh, do you know?"
Ryleigh: "Yellow and blue."
Me: "Yup. Good job."
Bailey: "My turn...ask me a question."
Me: "Okay...what is the capital of Utah?"
Me: (laughing so hard I can barely speak) "It's Salt Lake City!"
