I have never been much of a girly girl. Never been fond of dresses or things in my hair, could have cared less about the prom. But having a little girl is so different. I love to put Bailey in dresses and bows in her hair. I think tights are the best and bright colors a must.
There are days when I think of myself as a better 'boy' mom than a girl mom and I have already thought that if we do have two more children, I would be OK if there were both boys. But I am so grateful for Bailey. There is just something about having a little girl, it really is something special and I truly got lucky with mine.
Even when she points her finger at me, says 'NO' and walks sassily away from me, I still love her.

We have visited a local orchard here in Virginia three times in the last five days. Maybe it's because of my love for apple crisp, or the desire to overuse my nifty apple peeler/corer/slicer I got last year for Christmas form my mother-in-law. Could be the feeling of guilt that overcomes me when I think of my grandmother not getting her Stayman apples.
But really it's just the way that Bailey responds to the orchard's pet goats. Even after her fourth time there this fall she still thinks they are amazing.
