Welcome to the Blake Family Blog! We wanted to create a fun way to share what is going on in our busy lives and this is what we came up with.

Finally an update
Hello to all from glorious Plano, TX. Okay, so it is August in Texas so "glorious" might not be appropriate, but we do enjoy our new digs. Bailey started full-time daycare today and she was sent home by 2:30 for excessive diarrhea! Go figure. She wasn't running a fever, and I KNOW she is teething, but nonetheless, she and her daddy will make a trip to the doctor tomorrow morning just to make sure she isn't really sick. You should see the diaper rash on this kid from all the diarrhea she has had the past few days. OUCH! I think we are just going to start rinsing her in the shower between diapers because she howls when a baby wipe even gets close to her little bottom. Pobresito. Although this summer has come to an end, we did manage to sneak in a quick trip to Colorado to see the Blakes. We had a wonderful visit and even got to take in some sights during the day while Grandma played with Bailey. The top couple of pictures are from Colorado. The one with the Texas flag in it was taken on the Royal Gorge Bridge. Quite breathtaking, and a bit creepy to walk across because cars just drive right past you and make the boards shake under your feet. The one where Nick is "wearing" Bailey was taken at Cave of the Winds. This was outside the caves, but I think Bailey liked the caves. I thought they were pretty cool too (literally)! I had to include the one where Bailey is sagging because it reminds me of my peeps at JLMS! Just trying to keep it real. hahaha! The others I included just because I have been so bad at updating this stinking blog and felt you should be rewarded with some preciousness just for being patient with me. I would promise to do better, but not likely!
I am first and foremost a proud mother of a new baby girl, Bailey Morgan, and a fun miniature schnauzer, Dakota Chandler. I am also the loving wife of Nick.
My other job is an elementary PE teacher. I am used to middle school kids, but I am looking forward to a new challenge!
This picture cracks me up. She loves to sleep with her arms wide open.
Our Little Inauguration Day Baby
"Teeny Republican" About two minutes after we turned on the t.v. to watch the Inauguration, Bailey started acting up and that is when the nurses ran in and decided to do a C-Section. Three other babies had to be delivered the same way within minutes of Bailey. One of the doctors said they must all be Republican babies since they were so upset!
If only we were Catholic, she might be the first female Pope!
This is the hat that inspired the Pope John Bailey song we sing about Bailey. (Pope, Pope, Pope, Pope John Bailey...)
Poppy and his Texas grandkids
Dakota loves Bailey, but he isn't too fond of sharing his Poppy with her.
