My mommy went back to work lastweek. Two months of maternity leave was nice, but now it is time to get back to the real world. While Mommy and Daddy are at work, I stay with Nana and Cousin Caitlin at my Aunt Patti and Uncle Ben's house. Aunt Dia also comes over every day to help out. We get lots of visitors throughout the week. Aunt Edna, Poppy, Corky, Aunt Karen, and Uncle Joe stop by to hang out. Caitlin loves to play with me. I can't wait until I am bigger and we can cause lots of trouble.
Aunt Karen and Uncle Joe. They are so phorogenic and I am not even looking at the camera.
Aunt Patti, Caitlin, and Me
We are too cute.

Nana with her hands full. Sorry I was crying Nana. Usually Caitlin cries when she hears me cry, but this time she was distracted by Elmo.
Notice our matching outfits from Grammy. Sorry, this is the best picture my Mommy had of our outfits.

Today I am two months old. I am now 21.25 inches long and I weigh 9 pounds 6 ounces. My parents think I have changed a lot. I hold my head up well and I am even starting to lift it up when I am lying on my tummy on the floor. I like to put weight on my legs also. My mommy was afraid it would make me bowlegged, but my doctor said it won't. I follow people and objects with my eyes, I smile at people (my parents' favorite trick), and I am starting to vocalize. My Mommy sits with me in front of the mirrored closet doors and I like to interact with the baby I see. Here are some pictures on my second month of life so you can see how much I have changed.
My name is Allison Grace. My adventure began on April 8, 2009. I was 5 pounds 9 ounces and 17.5 inches long. I surprised my parents and arrived early on my grandparent's 37th wedding anniversary. My mommy and daddy didn't expect me until April 23rd, but they were excited to meet me.
