5..4..3..2..1…..BLAST OFF!!!

That’s what I heard from the backseat of the car yesterday. At first I just smiled because she’s just so darn cute and then it hit me…. my 3 year old just counted backwards from 5!!!! I was so excited. I told her how great that was and how proud I am of her to count backwards and I said to her “Where did you learn to do that?” She said “at school mommy, the teacher told me”. How excited was I. Obviously school was a great idea.

She is 9 months old this week. Can you believe that! Here is her monthly picture with the zebra…
Here is her picture with the zebra the week she came home from the hospital. Looks like the baby got much bigger and the zebra got much smaller!

She loves playing in the bathtub now that she can sit up and splash!

This picture it looks like she’s saying “I don’t know why mommy wants me in this hooded towel”.
A quick self portrait of Allison and Mommy.

  2. Karen, that picture of Allison with her hands up is sooo cute. Kids are too funny. That’s a great idea with the zebra. I may start to do something like that with this giant bear Brandon got.
