March 2009: 4 months old

Since Bailey is now 4 months old, we feel it is time to start introducing her to the wonderful world of art. John has been playing his guitar for her since she was in the womb so that she will share his love of music, and now it is my turn to show her as much art as her little brain can process. We have taken her to her first art show and she loved it.

Actually we were there because for the second year in a row Bella and Skylar's art pieces were displayed to represent there school's art program. It had nothing to do with Bailey, but her Aunt Candi did take her around the room to see all the art and she was just as in to it as the rest of us. Unfortunately I was having so much fun looking at all the cool art myself, that I forgot to photograph Bailey's reactions... BOO! Anyway, only a handful of pieces get selected to be on display from each school... like maybe 20, so it's a big deal and I am very proud of my niece and nephew for their talent. Bella actually had two pieces in the show this year!

I miss these days! Skylar is taking Band next year instead of art, so he won't make it in the next art show. But Bella seems to be taking after her mom so I have a feeling we will get to see many of Bella's pieces in future art shows!

    Hehehe! Thank you! My sister and I both grew up LOVING art, so it's a lot of fun seeing her kiddos doing what we used to do. My mom always thought we were so funny being little and drawing the object around the room instead of coloring in coloring books like "normal kids". Everyone in our family is artsy in different ways so I am sure Bailey will be no different.

    We find out on April 9th as well. It scary! We feel a little better because the other CEM is moving back to Chicago after the restructure to be closer to her family so at least he is safe against her, but we keep hearing TONS of roomers about other major positions merging so it's still an uncomfortable on edge sort of feeling right now. We have you guys in our prayers and are hoping for the best. They work too hard to be let go!!
