Bailey Marie was born in February of 2010 at 36 weeks.
She spent a week in the NICU, partly because she was born with a right unilateral cleft lip and palate. (Read more about her diagnosis and surgeries under the "Cleft info" tab.)

Our Bailey Boo is now 6 years old and amazes us everyday. She loves to read and is a complete night owl - often using her lantern in bed to read books while her sister sleeps on the bottom bunk. She loves being outside, whether it's planting flowers with her dad or enjoying the animals at my parents' farm.
