BC: I never knew I could love so much, Until the day I felt your touch. I softly kissed your tiny cheek, from under your lashes I saw you peek. Your beautiful eyes so small and blue, My sweet little Bailee just brand new. I cannot wait to watch you grow, From your little head to your tiny toes. My daughter, My love, my little joy, My perfect angel, My baby doll toy. I promise to love you with all my heart, Im here for you from the very start. Ill comfort you when you cry, I'll answer true when you ask, why? While you grow, be sweet and kind, Always show others how bright you shine. | Forever & Always | ~ Mommy & Daddy
1: Our journey through the pregnancy of little baby Bailee. Our beautiful, sweet, perfect little girl. We will always cherish our first 9 months together. Love always & forever, Mommy & Daddy
2: It was a very hot Sunday in August, when I realized I might be pregnant. This was also the day I surprised daddy with tickets to a Cardinals game where we met a few of our friends and family. After the game, daddy went to get a pregnancy test. Daddy thought mommy was crazy! As soon as daddy fell asleep, mommy took the test. I sat there anxiously waiting and 3 minutes later my life changed forever, I was pregnant! I instantly ran to daddy in tears, the second he saw my face he knew. Daddy grabbed me and held tight, both very scared and nervous. We took the next day off work to plan for what was soon to be, the single most exciting & precious time of our life!
4: Watching you grow for 9 months... We took a few photos to watch as you grew in mommy's belly. It was so amazing to see how much my belly grew month to month. It's such a miracle to see the changes that our bodies go through while a little life is growing inside. You have always made mommy so happy Bai! I will forever cherish every moment we have together!
5: Full Term!
6: Oh the joy of being pregnant and the funny things I craved... I have always loved pickles, also I had midnight cheese cravings. I'm sure you know by now that nothing has changed! Daddy has always been such a sport running out to get me whatever I needed. We have always had such an amazing and supportive family!
8: A day I will never forget, our first appointment to see an ultrasound. Mommy's friend Brittany met her at the hospital; daddy couldn't make this appointment but Aunt Brittany was there for every moment! The first few ultrasound appointments you were so stubborn and refused to uncross your legs! Once we saw you on the screen we just had to know. Instead of baby Brodee Tyler We were so excited to find out that we were having a baby girl, Bailee Paige! We couldn't stop smiling the whole way home...it was such a good day.
10: We were so excited to tell everyone we were having a Girl!
11: There was no way mommy could keep you a secret, I sent everyone a text as soon as we knew for sure! Mama Chris and Aunt Felicia immediately took mommy shopping to be the first ones to spoil you rotten! Mama Chris and Aunt Felicia, MeMe and Nana were very helpful to mommy while I was pregnant! One memory I will never forget was telling Nana & Papa about the big news, they both cried! Happy tears <3
12: After MANY nights of flipping through pages and pages of baby names, talking about the many options, and praying about a name for our perfect little baby...My mind was done searching and stressing. I quickly wrote down 5 girls names and let daddy choose! Daddy Chose: Bailee Paige Cox Bailee: from Old French Baili Paige: French
14: I had been dreaming of the perfect nursery for my little girl for months. I was so happy with the way it turned out. Thanks to Aunt Brittany Peters and Aunt Cassie Cox, I could have never ever finished it in time without them. We decided to go with an orange and pink animal theme. You had two different rooms, first your room was orange, then we moved you to the bigger room and painted the walls purple! I couldn't wait to show you your new room.
16: The first time I felt you kick was so amazing, daddy on the other hand thought it was slightly weird but he quickly got used to it. We were still living with Meme, we were laying in bed after work, daddy couldn't feel you right away but it didn't take long! You had grown so much that your little legs and feet were strong enough to kick! WOW! I will never forget that first kick for the rest of my life.
18: Aunt Brittany Peters was such an amazing friend, she threw your entire baby shower! Nana cooked and aunt Felicia helped with food also! The theme was Orange and Pink. The food, favors and decor were lovely. I had so much fun visiting with all of my favorite people. I am very blessed to have such amazing people in my life. We had everything we needed, thanks to all of the generous gifts we received. Cute clothes, diapers, a beautiful stroller and diaper bag. We were ready to welcome you home.
19: It was so nice to see everyone there to celebrate you!
20: We had been on this journey together for 9 months, I couldn't believe it was time to meet you! It was such an easy pregnancy with the exception of a couple days of Pre-term labor, but it is well worth it.
21: I have so many plans for us. Trips to the zoo, play dates with your friends, tea parties, birthday parties, shopping for pretty dresses, baking your favorite cookies, exploring life's wonders and watching you grow into a beautiful young lady. I can't wait to show you to the whole world. I loved you so much already!
22: Little Bailee was ready to meet us on March 12th 2011. I was getting ready for bed when all of a sudden my water broke. I yelled for daddy and we were on our way to the hospital! I was immediately taken to my delivery room. I was in labor for a few hours and then finally baby Bailee was born at 2:42 am. It was amazing and a very emotional experience for all of us.
24: Bailee Paige, born 3.12.11 at 2:42am She weighed 6lbs 12oz and was 21 inches long. We are so blessed to have been given this tiny little baby and are so grateful for this precious gift. We will cherish every moment we have with you.
