{52 snapshots of life} #dream

i love watching little bailey sleep. she is so peaceful. i'm sure she is dreaming of the day she can walk with perfect balance and not like a drunken sailor. that day is just around the corner, sweetie. just wait and see. it'll be here before you know it.

fire hydrant graveyard (+ a medical update)

i know this is supposed to be a wordless post but i have news to share:

monday we had another follow-up visit with dr w. bailey has made great strides in her recovery; miraculous really. doc was so pleased with her progress and was thrilled when he saw her walk. he said she is doing so well we can stop her meds! he still wants her to continue with the folic acid (i believe for her red blood cells?) and the cottage cheese (for her skull). then he totally shocked us by saying she doesn't need any more follow-up visits! can you believe it?!? her skull has healed 60%-80% and will continue to mend over the next few months. his job is done and it is just up to her little self to complete the healing process. also, the wobble in her walk will eventually disappear and she should be good as new.

it's only been 10 weeks from an accident that could have killed her and incompetent care that could have left her paralyzed, or worse. OMD. i can't believe it. our little girl has beat the odds and is coming out a winner. thanks again to everyone who has been praying for our little bailey.
you all rock. {{{hugs}}}

{52 snapshots of life} #music

there is ALWAYS music on in our house. i can't stand silence. our cable provider offers several music channels that play music 24/7 with no commercials and no dj's. love it. i have it on all day.

but on sunday mornings, we listen to breakfast with the beatles on this radio, with coffee in hand, and doggie on lap.

"i am the walrus, goo goo g'joob"

and what is music without song? bailey asked me to include a new sonata she composed specifically for this post. enjoy.

i know what you're thinking. #music was the theme two weeks ago. this week is #dream. yes, i know. time flies when you have a recuperating chihuahua in the house but i'm caught up now. let's hope i stay that way. BOL

bonkers for blueberry bagels

bailey goes bonkers for blueberry bagels. check out her intense stare. it's as if she was willing it to magically fly into her mouth.

then her request for a taste ...

turned into an all out plea! i really wish i had video'd her. she was creating such a ruckus. we were afraid she was going to injure herself!

finally she tries the sweet and adorable approach.
of course i ended up sharing my bagel with her. there was no way i could resist her.

unzipped and tethered

when i have bailey in her stroller, i usually have her zipped in like this. she is free to move around and can't fall out because she is completely enclosed. the other day i wondered how she would react if she were not zipped in but tethered instead. i had a typing project, yes i still type BOL, so i thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give it a try. i put her in, hooked her up with the two safety tethers, left the canopy open and the mesh panel down. she behaved very well and sat very patiently until i was done typing. the tethers restrict her movement quite a bit so i won't be doing it often but it's good to know she was ok with it.

{52 snapshots of life} #joyful

we've pretty much been shut-ins since bailey's accident. taking care of her has been a full time job and our number one priority. she's not yet 100% but she's feeling well enough to start making little trips here and there. if you follow us on facebook, you saw our little outing yesterday. but what i didn't show you was how happy she was to be out again. i think this shot captures it quite well. pure joy.
