Dallas has been walking around everywhere saying baaaabbbbyyyy. She loves to kiss her, poke her and pat her (sometimes a little too hard).  When Bliss gets her diaper changed Dallas wants her diaper changed. When Bliss cries Dallas fake cries with her. On Saturday Kyle was swaddling Bliss and after he handed her over to Mamaw Dallas climbed up on the sofa ready for her turn to be swaddled. It wasn't easy getting her into a newborn swaddle but daddy managed to do it. 

I imagine this time in the girls lives will be one of the few where older sister wants to be just like younger sister. So we are enjoying and soaking up every second.

Bailey "Bliss" Duke

Bliss has arrived and her name pretty much sums up exactly how we are feeling. We are so excited to officially be a family of four.

15 Months!

My girl... she is wild and rowdy but also sensitive and oh so sweet. She is full of laughter and mischief and big hugs and kisses. She loves playing in the dirt and wearing mommy's jewelry. She is more than we could have ever imagined or hoped for. She makes our hearts smile on a daily basis.
