Well our little boy will be here in 20 more weeks. As you can see he's growing as well as me! I started feeling him kick about three weeks ago and he kicks/moves quite a lot. Billy has felt his little kick once so far. We don't go to the doctor again until next week so I'll have more news then.
Bailey loves to play with her friend, Adeline. We are sad though that Adeline will be moving to the states in July. We are going to miss her and her parents! It's so cute because Adeline says Bailey's name except it sounds more like, "Baaaaaby."
playing on the pillows...you can see they just bumped heads, Bailey is rubbing her head and Adeline has look of "that hurt!"
Lately Bailey has been a bit of a book worm. She is always bringing a book to us to read to her. On this day she decided she would read them on her own. She crawled up on the pillow next to her book bin.
If you've ever tried to fix a one year old's hair then you know how easy it is! haha! I finally got Bailey's hair pulled up and it looked cute unfortunatley it only lasted about an hour before she messed it up! And for those of you who know my sister, don't forget she is the hair dresser not me. I'm sure she's thinking the same thing after seeing Bailey's hair.
We celebrated Father's Day with a big breakfast with some good friends. We had gravy and biscuits, bacon and even some Jimmy Dean sausage! It was good. Bailey knew it much be a special day because she didn't want to take a morning nap. I guess she wanted to be near her daddy.
Well Bailey got the chicken pox vaccine last week and this week got the chicken pox! She had a fever a couple of days and has some pox on arms, face and legs. She is doing ok. She's been a little grumpy but they don't seem to make her itch. So that's good. Pray she gets over them quickly. Also pray for me because I don't think I had chicken pox. My mom says I didn't have them. But I do remember having the shingles in the 5th grade but my family doesn't remember that. So either I am making it up or being the third child no one paid any attention to me! If I did have shingles I'm ok since it's the same virus. I'm not worried so much for me but the baby. I did have a blood test today that will tell me if I'm immune to the virus or not. So I'll let you know tomorrow.
and it seems Bailey needs to have a corner in each room because she now has a little corner in the kitchen
Last week went visit and friend, Elif and her mom. Her mom made a wonderful Turkish breakfast for us! She made a great pastry called sigara borek or cigarette pastry. Sounds yummy, right? Well it's just gets its name from the shape of the pastry. But it is really delicious! So today I decided I would try and make it. And it was good. I've also learned to make another kind of borek from another neighbor. That's about all the Turkish food I can make so if you come visit I'll make you some.

Here's a video of the apartment. I know many of you are saying "finally!" (you know who you are...Mandy!) We still have a ways to go to "finishing" it. More pictures to hang, bunk beds to get and just junk to put away!
brother! We went to the doctor on Friday and found out the baby is a boy. We are excited to learn all things that come with little boys! We keep telling Bailey about the baby but she doesn't care but come November she will care. I'm sure she will love her little brother! Continue to pray for our little boy as he grows and as I grow!
