Our precious little cupcake

I couldn't help but post these pictures. Dave was grilling for dinner, so we put Bailey in her chair next to daddy. Like Father like daughter...Bailey LOVES to read. She has started really getting into touchy feely books, for lack of a better description. Bailey is also such a happy baby. One of her favorite things is to breath really quickly with her mouth wide open and her arms and legs moving all over the place. She was apparently really happy for these pictures! We love Bailey so much and are so blessed to have her in our lives.
We have designated one book for Bailey to "read" to herself. Yesterday for the first time she actually ate some of it! Family reading time from here on out!

Swimming and Poison Control

Bailey went swimming for the first time in our neighborhood pool. She just loves the water. We had a great time.

We had our first and I am sure not last incident with Poison Control. Bailey often enjoys playing with things that are not meant to be toys. We usually will give her pretty much anything to play with as long as it isn't breakable and it won't hurt her...well, oops! This compass seemed to be an innocent toy, but we soon found out that there was permanent marker along the straight edges. She soon had marker everywhere. Poison control was really nice and said she should be just fine. Maybe permanent marker has extra iron which could be nice for Bailey!
Harmless enough right?!?
If you look closely at her right hand you can se it is also covered with marker. Daddy doesn't look too happy about this!

Family events

Dave played in a Raquetball tournament about a week ago and we came along to cheer. It was a lot of fun. Bailey is truly a social butterfly. She was smiling at all the men playing in the tournament!
Bailey and I went to the Blue Bell Ice Cream Factory this past week with some friends. It was so much fun and Bailey loved every bite of ice cream she got. She sure loved Blue Bell's homemade vanilla. If any of you have not tried it, you need to come visit us and we will get you some. It really tastes like homemade ice cream!
This past weekend has been a lot of fun. Mom and Dad Bishop came to visit. We were able to read a lot of stories, go on walks to the ducks, eat some brisket, enjoy the farmer's market, go to the butterfly museum, and just enjoy each other's company. The greatest thing was that Bailey loved spending time with grandma and grandpa. Thanks for the awesome trip.

There was a pendulum clock in the museum and Bailey loved looking at it, just like her daddy.
Bailey loved all of the butterflies flying around. It was a nice sunny day so the butterflies were quite active.

Also, Bailey is training to be the next volleyball star! This video is of her chatting. She just loves to talk. It is so fun to listen to. We love her so much and are so lucky to have her as part of our family.
