Once we knew Baby Cummins was on the way, we knew immediately what Baby’s name would be if he were, indeed, a “he.” We also picked a girl’s name, but we were less sure about that choice; in the weeks leading up to Drew’s birth, I began considering other girls’ names. Thankfully, we didn’t have to... Read More→ The post The Story of Drew’s Name appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

In the first weeks of November, I had a few symptoms that hinted towards our baby arriving soon, even though I was 4 weeks from my due date. As a chronic over-Googler, I managed to convince myself that I was imagining the symptoms to be more than they were. I joked with the receptionists at... Read More→ The post Drew’s Birth Story appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

Andrew Richard Cummins Born on November 9, 2019 (4 weeks early!) at 12:30 am 6 pounds, 14 ounces and 19.25 inches I’ve been noticeably absent from this little space on the web for the past few months as I soaked up the last few months of pregnancy and contemplated if and how I wanted to... Read More→ The post Introducing… appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

On our first full day in Hawaii, we visited Kailua Beach Park. We didn’t stay too long, because it was crowded! While we were in the Kailua area, we made a trip over to Marine Corps Base Hawaii as we were curious how “the other half” lives. As we roamed around the base we saw signs... Read More→ The post Pyramid Rock Beach at Marine Corps Base Hawaii appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

As we were planning our babymoon, Andy and I each picked one activity that we had to do while in Hawaii. My choice was visiting Pearl Harbor. Sadly, the USS Arizona memorial was under repair while we were there, but there is more to do at Pearl Harbor than just visiting the iconic white floating bridge. (I... Read More→ The post Visiting Pearl Harbor: USS Bowfin Submarine Museum appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

If you’ve been a long-time follower of Becoming Bailey, you’ll notice there’s a change to my website: the comments section is no more! This was actually entirely by accident– somehow as I was redesigning my website, I accidentally removed that section entirely. After spending a few hours attempting to restore it with no success, I decided... Read More→ The post Why I Disabled the Comments on My Blog appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

One of Andrew’s most significant concerns, when we decided to visit Hawaii for our babymoon, was how it would affect our budget. Obviously, babies are expensive, and he was concerned that maybe this isn’t the right time for us to take a big vacation. Like with our Dominican Republic vacation last summer, I knew we could... Read More→ The post Our Babymoon Budget appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

A few weeks ago (the weekend after our Hawaiian babymoon, in fact), Andy and I traveled back to Kentucky for my baby shower. It was a quick trip (we spent just 60 hours in Owensboro!) but just long enough to see everyone and celebrate Baby Cummins. My sisters threw me a Chick-fil-A themed baby shower, which I absolutely... Read More→ The post Celebrating Baby Cummins: A Chick-fil-A Themed Baby Shower appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

I’m a little tardy to the party for this month’s The Military Minute linkup with Missy of Loving Life Moore, but that’s okay. I’m incredibly excited about this month’s particular writing prompt. Do you prefer on- or off-post (base) living, and why? First, let me dive into a few of our experiences living both on-post... Read More→ The post The Military Minute: On-Post Versus Off-Post Living appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...

Andy and I recently returned from a week in Hawaii (our last vacation before Baby Cummins arrives!) and oh my goodness, it was hands-down our favorite vacation to date. Dare we say it, it was even better than our honeymoon! I plan to share all about our Hawaiian vacation in upcoming posts, but today’s post is all... Read More→ The post Why We Visited Hawaii for Our Babymoon appeared first on Becoming Bailey. ...
