Daddy always wanted an Ally. When he agreed to the name Alice, I'm sure he knew what would occur! You are my Ally Boo, and oh, how I love you--all of you!
I am so sorry if you someday notice that there are not quite as many posts, on this blog, about you---as there were about your big sis, Wendy, or big bro, Linc. You see (you may someday very well know!), I now have THREE kids, and blogging is so much more difficult to do. I am busy-busy with the work of loving and ENJOYING all three of you to bits and bits! I spend my waking hours nurturing, entertaining, LEARNING, always, new things about motherhood, and just soaking up y'all's "luvins!" So, there are indeed far fewer posts. We are still, because I am still, a get-out-of-the-house type of family, so we go-go, meet, greet, and have oodles of fun, and I just don't have the time or energy left over to document each and every event of your lives. But oh, we are living it!
I AM keeping up with your baby book. I just ordered some pics for it! You are every bit as wondrously amazing as your big sis and big bro, and for that, I am eternally aware of how blessed I am, as your mother. You turned five months yesterday and, sigh, I just am in total awe of you, as a little person so filled to your brim with personality and charm.
You're EASY! Easy going #3! Conventional, beautiful, girly. You LIGHT UP with a HUGE gummy smile when Wendy or Linc enter your field of vision. You probably just live to interact with them! You nurse like a champ and the rolls are glorious. I snuggle and adore you daily and nightly. BUT! You now sleep so well, I go in to you at 5 am just to feed and change you to ensure you continue to flourish.
(I just had to holler at bro and sis to be quiet as you're now napping! Linc just asked me to play with him in the tent Daddy set up in our dining room, and I had to explain that I'm trying to blog!)
Big Sis and Big Bro were just in a wedding on Daddy's side of the family. I think I'll see if I remember how to post pics!
Linc--thank his Creator, he's got his father's temperament so he's a great catch-in-the-making! A good soul. I love m' boy, your brother who ADORES you, Ally Boo! Seriously! Never a jealous moment, even though he was my baby until you were born! He pets your head often and with a gentle zealousness. Your fuzzy head is HIS to pet, as far as HE is concerned!!!
Alrighty then, I am forced to wrap this up. Got a doctor's appointment and kids to get ready. Love you, my Ally Boo...
