Bailey Sophia – 2 weeks today!

Sweet little baby girl, how we love you, little bug-a-loo!

Don’t Rocky and Jovan make pretty babies?  Three girls now.  When they found out they were having another girl (and maybe just the teensiest surprised that against all odds they weren’t having a boy this time), I wrote them a letter about having three girls in a row { h e r e } and I do believe they are pretty thrilled with her!

And how fortuitous that on the day I wanted to wish bebe a happy-2-weeks-old-we-love-you wish, Stephanie (the entreprenuerial, highly-talented mommy, photographer and MayDae curator and writer – and a darling daughter to boot) released these photos of Bailey-girl, taken this week.


A song for grandbebe #8

Bailey Sophia, two weeks old

How do you like the world so far?

Bailey Sophia, two weeks old

What a blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed girl you are

For you have swings to be swung on ~ Trees to be climbed up

Days to be young on ~ Toys you can wind up

Grass to be lying on

Sun up above

Pillows for crying on

When you’re in love

Ponies for riding

Wind in your hair

Slides to be sliding on

Leaves in the air

Dogs to be caring for ~Love to be giving

Dreams to be daring for ~ Long as you’re living

Yes, you have dreams to be daring for

Long as you’re living

Bailey Sophia, two weeks old

What a blessed, blessed, blessed, blessed girl you are…*

We love you, Bailey-bebe! 

*Lyrics revised from the Barbra Streisand song, “Jenny Rebecca.”  Little known fact: in 1970, when my family got a TV again, Gerber, I believe, was doing these baby food commericals using that song.  There were two versions, a boy version and a girl version and they showed the life of a baby from birth to toddlerhood.  I think it was like “Jenny Rebecca, one day old, how do you like the world so far,” then, “Jenny Rebecca, 6 months old…”  You get the idea.  The names they used were in fact Jenny Rebecca and Christopher Michael and for the longest time, I had planned to use those names for my children.
