Happy Harper

Harper is such a happy baby. She is just now starting to give us the deep belly laugh. I usually don't capture it on video b/c I'm so intent on listening to her. This clip of her and Jesse is the tail end of several minutes of her laughing. I think she has the sweetest laugh ever!

Tickle Time!

Maturing and Night Fears, Oh my!

Bailey is getting so big, so fast. Every day he says something that just blows Jesse and me away. He's putting sentences together, singing nursery rhymes and the alphabet. However, he is a little shy about his singing. Mostly, we only hear him if we're in another room. I can't get him to sing anything on video. So, I'm finally convinced that night fears have set in. For the past month or so, Bailey wakes up every night and gets in bed with us. Sometimes he wakes up crying hard and other times he crawls in our bed and we don't realize it until we wake up in the morning. Last night, he woke up crying hard. This morning, I asked him if he remembered waking up crying last night and he said, "yes." Then I asked him why he was crying and he said, "Bay got a burn, Mama cooking, Bay touched the bread." I later found out that he had told Jesse the same story a few days ago. It's crazy that he's old enough to have dreams.

They Change So Fast

Harper is making some big changes these days. This morning I found her at the opposite end of her crib. Two nights ago she rolled over onto her back. This afternoon she and I had a laughing fit for a good 10 minutes. She would laugh, then I would laugh, then we'd make each other laugh. It was so sweet and cute, I wish someone could have been there to video tape it. I was able to catch a video of her and Jesse laughing together last night. She is so much more awake and lively during the days. I'm excited about getting to spend more time with her but also a little disappointed that she's not sleeping as much during the day. Gone are the days when she would be awake for an hour then sleep for two.
This is where I put her to sleep last night. She's a little confused b/c I put her back in her crib so I could take these pics.This is where I found her this morning. Again, she's a little confused.

Bailey can count to 10 really fast! Although, I've yet to capture it on video.

Bailey in April

Bailey is hard to capture these days. Since I got my new camera he hides every time I try to take pictures of him. When I get some good ones I'll be sure to share them.

I must say I am very proud of myself for figuring out how to create and add this slideshow to my blog. It took me two days and a few help menus but here it is! I'm still working on Bailey's.

I am so excited about my new camera! I saved my birthday money to invest in a nice digital camera to capture my children at their best:) It also records video. Now I can take good quality videos of Bailey four-wheeling, among his other many talents:)

Bailey Goes Muddin'

One of Bailey's favorite things to do is "ride fo wee-wee in the BIG water."
