7: Both working at Cracker Barrel, and driven by love and ambition.
8: Let the shopping begin...
10: Bailey, you ain't seen nothing yet.
11: 2 Baby Showers: one at home, and one at church.
14: We got so much stuff those two days, we were stunned that we could even live in the same apartment. Thank-you to all who bought things or helped in any way for answering some of the, ''Well, how are we going to pay for this?'' questions.
16: Some of the early fall months, 2008, including mommy's birthday on September 7th, and her 21st birthday party at Outback. Even though she is smiling in all her pictures, when she blew out the candles on her birthday cake, she wished for Bailey to come out now...NOW.
18: The Day Has Finally Come: December 1st, 2008... II. The Birth of a Princess Very early in the morning as the clock struck 2, Daddy was awoken by the anxious mommy alarming him it was time to go. We packed our things and headed to the hospital. We called everyone on the way, and the members of the family that were within distance, came rushing as well: Gran-dad, Grams, Granny, and Pop later that night. Mommy's dad, his wife Kelly, and sister Megan arrived shortly after the next day. But some of us were really tired.
20: You Are So Beautiful. Period.

24: III. Early Kingdom Times: Welcome to the world Miss Bailey Shay. After and exhausting 9 months, the true joy began. Getting to know our daughter was mom's and dad's greatest joy. In the early months of being alive, you were in good health, but tired yourself... understandably. But as time went on, you began to develop your own personality. It started out with various sounds and and subtle smiles, and eventually sprung out into the biggest bolt of happy lightning. Your first word was mama, and your second words were, I don't like peas. And the family, loved you. They couldn't get enough of you. And when we weren't in North Carolina, Kentucky, or in Matthews, we were still having the time of our lives.
27: V. Day Photo Shoot | Mmm. That's good. | Oh, haha. | Say what? I'm not getting in that. | 1 and 2 and 1 and 2. | I'm just hangin out.
32: Bailey Shay and Winter Winner were baptized on June 21st. 2009. by Rev. Chuck Winner at Bethel United Methodist Church. It was a great father's day present. Also, Bailey turns 1 in 2009. (right).
36: IV. The End of Year One Well Bailey, first and foremost, Mom and Dad love you very much. So do all of your family on both sides. There have been many memories shared over the course of this year, and there are so many that were not caught on camera, but will never be forgotten. By coming into this world, you have changed the lives of many with your never ending smiles and laughter. You are truly a blessing. Change is inevitable, but right now, we want to enjoy you as much as possible and have done so, so far in your life.
37: And oh yeah, you have grown so much in the course of one year. You have sprouted 4 teeth, 5 - 6 inches in height, and about 15 pounds in weight. You have so much energy and you love exploring what's around you. Like many girls, you can't help be attracted to bright and shiny things such as lights and jewelry. And you don't like daddy wearing glasses just about as much he does, as you swipe off my face every time I hold you. We are all excited to know who you are and your all of your quirks. Here's to you Bailey, with all the love in our house, and family, may you grow to be happy and healthy. We love you.
