we stayed up in Logan Utah a couple days at my Dad's house and it was so beautiful and relaxing. the air just smells better in Logan. we barbequed and dined al fresco and went for walks.

we left utah after our allergies seemed to get the best of us.

good thing though, because Bayley had a casting call in Hollywood....

we didn't have much time so we made it to Las Vegas and slept 5 hours and then were back on the road at 7am
Photobucket
we were tired.....

we made it to L.A., did the audition and then up to Pt. Mugu to check out our new home. we stayed at a little hotl on the water and went out to a wonderful restaurant with sand and fire pits!!!

Photobucket
we did stop in our favorite little town laguna beach for some ice cream, a sunset and some swinging at the park.

oh, and i got to eat at a cracker barrell!!!
and we found the best breakfast place EVER in our soon to be home.

Bayley was the best baby ever in the car the ENTIRE TIME!!! What a little angel baby!!

It was a fun journey.

13 months

13 unlucky?? no way!!! it's my favorite age of miss Bayley thus far.

Photobucket

She is walking all over the place

Photobucket

saying new words everyday and speaking her jibberish all the time, especialy while playing with her toys.

oh and she's pointing AND saying "that?" she wants to know what EVERYTHING is!!

Photobucket

she's a smart one, and everyone else thinks so too.

she knows how to woof woof like a doggy (thanks to the doggy in the condo accross from us that never stops woofing)

she says hi and waves at the same time whilst smiling her radiant go ahead and try not to look at me and tell me i'm beautiful smile.

she plays with her babydolls and gives them kisses and hugs and pats them

she cuddles with mama lots and is extra clingly to mama lately. fine by me!!

she gives daddy the hugest sloppiest kisses ever and lays on the couch with him in the mornings and watches sesame street. "melmo" is her favorite (elmo)

she really loves people more than anything, she is my little social butterfly!!!

she loves swimming in our pool

she has two top teeth (her fangs)

Photobucket

she LOVES strawberries and oranges. she will try almost anything and if she doesn't like it-she spits it out. oh, she ate a scallop at benihanas. she loved that place!!

Photobucket

she loves doing "makeup" with mama.

Photobucket

Bayley, you melt my heart countless times a day. I love you so much, I can't seem to kiss your sweet little cheeks enough. You make this world a better place just with your smile alone. I can't tell you haow many times a day people say "wow what a smile" people stop me in the grocery store so much that I can't even get any shopping done. You have charisma beyond belief. I am so blessed to have you as my baby. Thank you for being you, the most perfect baby I could ever ask for.
I love you heart and soul forever.
Love,
Mama

walkin' and talkin'

i am so exhausted from our week long road trip and haven't had a chance to write, but our girl is just blossoming into this little toddler right before our eyes so i figured i'd better jot some things down before the magical details disappear.

Photobucket

we have a full blown walker ladies and gentlemen!!
this morning she took 3 steps to grandma, but this evening she was walking all over the place. adam propped her up and she took off just like a little wind up doll. i started tearing up of course oh and grabbed the video camera. we've got pics and movies. auntie sarah and uncle hussey came to witness her huge milestone. i still can't believe it. it all happens so much faster than i imagined. her little walk is so adorable and then she plops right down on her little tush and smiles so big. she is just too cute and sweeter than apple pie.

Photobucket

oh and did i mention she is done with baby food, doesn't want anything to do with it-she's a big girl.....but still my baby...forever
this afternoon we took a much needed 2 hour nap together, it felt like heaven really. and she woke me up saying "mama" and patting me like she does, so we got up and she was wrapped around me like a big bear hugged around a tree. then i sat on the couch, the same place i used to sit with her on my chest when she was only days old. and she placed her little head where she always did and fell back asleep. what an angel baby.....my heart melted
only now instead of her toes barely skimming my lap, her long legs wrap around me all the way to my back. oh how you've grown so much my little Bayley!!!

and...

our girl is a talker!! wonder where she gets that from?? (hello simmonds genes!!!)
she speaks on command at only a year old!!!
her vocabulary includes:
mama
dada
grandma
kitty (kiki)
moon (moo)
bird (pronounces "burrrrrh") and looks and points to the sky
bye bye
hi
and our favorite..... "dude", yep she says it all the time. we're so proud of our little california girl.
oh and today she said pee pee, maybe she will be potty trained soon!!!


so that's all for now, i must go crawl in with my little monkey for a restful nights sleep so i can finish my to do list tomorrow which includes writing about our trip and posting more pictures

goodnight
