Memory slips…

It has only been a few months, but its hard to believe that our girls were as small as they were.


Here’s me and Nora, taking a nap last September. And then there was Tessa:


Its amazing how time flies….

Pork Chops and Applesauce…

Staying true to the Bailey tradition, the girls love to eat. We’ve made the slow progression to “solids” over the last few months and both Nora and Tessa are eating like champs.


I meant solid food, not solid objects!

This month we got the green light from the pediatrician to start on solids at every meal. Their favorite food is carrots. They aren’t so found of bananas and applesauce–but we’re sure they’ll come around. While feedings now take longer and are more involved and MESSY, it is a joy to watch the girls explore this new world of food.


At first we fed the girls in their bebe pods (i.e., the greatest baby invention–ever!). This worked out well because they could sit up and eat and it left our hands free to spoon food and not worry about them tipping over.


We’ve recently moved to the high chair for feedings. At first the girls seemed dwarfed by the massive chair.


But, now they’re growing into their chairs (and soon they’ll be growing out of them–like everything else).

Of all the yummy food they’ve begun to explore, Nora and Tessa love it the most when they get their delicious bottles. Especially when the bottles come with a slice of love from their grandparents.


Go Chiefs!

Go Chiefs!  Yeah, baby!


Oh, football season is over?  What about “Go Royals???” Oh, it’s STILL February?  Go…uh…”Wearing Red/Yellow/Chiefs Gear Day”????

Ok, so Mommy just really liked this pictures and needed an excuse to post it.  We’ll be ready for next season.

Special moments…

It seems that Nora and Tessa are growing and changing so much each day!  There are so many things that I want to remember about them. Like…

their tiny little toes…


…the deepest blue eyes…


…smiles that melt your heart…


…and the time Nora tried to eat Tessa!


Wait a minute!!!! 

This is so much fun.  To anyone interested–I highly recommend having twins.

A Reunion

Recently Nora and Tessa met their great-grandmother, my Granny Cozine.  N & T are the first generation of the great-grandchildren on my maternal side of the family and so it was a really special treat for them to meet their Great-Granny and all their great-aunts


We had so much fun “talking” to everyone and showing off our smiles!


Hey! Aunt Joyce was so much fun!


We had so much fun playing with our family!


We hope they come again soon! 

The look…

I’m not sure what to call it, but when people ask me about the distinct personality traits of the girls, one of the things I bring up about Nora is “the look”. Often, she’ll give you a good look while her head is pointed downward. She knows what you’re up to….



I love this trait in her. It’s so cute!

And…THEY’RE OFF (almost)!

It’s a race to find out who will crawl first!  Tessa really seems to have the logistics down–pulling with her arms and alternating pushing with her legs.  But it is sweet little Nora that really has a fire in her eyes to TAKE OFF.  However, the coordination for Nora’s “crawl” looks more like a skydive.
