Allison 8 months

Tooth #1: bottom lower left 7/27/13
Tooth #2: bottom lower right 8/1/13

Allison is crazy.  She crawls like a manic, bounces all over the place, pulls up on everything, and cruises on the furniture.  Her record of standing alone is 7 seconds, and she is getting better every day.  Because this is my third child I obviously think it is awful. :)  She also spends a lot of time on her knees bouncing.  Especially to make her siblings laugh.

Allison is soooooooooo ridiculously happy.  She is smiley, laughs easily, and loves to make eye contact and smile at anyone she can.  Harmon and Sammy adore her, and treat her a little too rough with love.  Now that she is into everything they also find her a little bit annoying at times (like when she destroys their legos, etc.)

Her favorite toy is her tiny baby doll she got for Easter.  She will grab it, shake it/slam it on her lap, attack/eat it's head, chew on it's feet.  When you ask her to show you her baby she will gladly shake it for you while saying "dadadadada!"  She also loves picking up tiny things off the floor and trying to eat them.

She eats pretty  much everything.  Her favorites are watermelon, bread, and anything on your plate or the floor.  Ok, and ice cream.

She squeals a lot, and babbles dada and mama, but doesn't call us that.  Most things are usually dadadada.

She is a terrible sleeper but getting better.  She thinks the 5 o clock hour is a great hour to be awake.  I disagree.

We adore our baby girl!

Allison on the move...

Yesterday Allison decided she was tired of holding still.  She began rolling from back to front.  And then continued front to back.  And so on.  I guess it's time to pick up all the legos from the floor.  If that wasn't enough she also scoots forward by grabbing/pulling the carpet and kicking her legs.  Not very far, but enough to get to a close toy.  She also will lift up one arm and then kind of lurch toward that side to get some distance.  Trouble! :)

Rolly Polly

Little baby Allison who is just over 3.5 months rolled over today from belly to back.  First while no one was watching (I noticed I had left her on her stomach one minute prior) then while Aaron watched, and finally a third time for the video camera.  Nice work little lady.  And by little I mean chunky and cute.  She is for sure my chunkiest baby (which I love).  I assume the next milestone will be teeth within a week or three, but maybe back to front rolling.  We will see.

Allison Smiles

I should be fired from blogging.

Friday December 28th Allison started smiling on purpose.  A week later she was doing it more often.  Now she does it all the time and coos back at you.  It's delightful.

The day before 6 weeks she weighed 10lbs 11.6oz.

She is great and we adore her.

Most interesting blog post ever.

Grave Digger Speaks

10.24.11 - Harmon's 3rd Birthday

All four of us lying in the kids' bed situation (two twin mattresses shoved together on the floor) trying to make the kids calm down/sleep after Harmon's super fun party.

Harmon: I love my birthday!!! Grave Digger (giant monster truck toy snuggling him), do you want to go to sleep?
Grave Digger (by Harmon in hilarious deep raspy voice): No! I don't want to sleep! I just want to go play in the playroom!
Harmon: You don't want to sleep? You just want to play??
Grave Digger: Yes! I want to get up and plaaaaaaaaaay! In the plaaaaaaaayroom!!!
Mom: Sorry Grave Digger, it's time to go to sleep now. You can play in the playroom in the morning.
Grave Digger: But I love to plaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

It probably isn't really funny unless you were there, but I wanted to write it down before I forgot it.

Early Potty Training Tease

Sammy is obsessed with the potty since Harmon goes, so I put her on before bath each night. This morning she asked to go, and actually peed! Maybe it will be easy... haha right...
