Ally is 9 months old today! I can't believe how time has flown! She is such a joy to have! She seriously is so happy and smiley and fun and just makes mine and Samantha's day better because she is in it!

Ally is officially into everything! Her newest messes: sneakily crawling into the bathroom, pulling herself up and unraveling the toilet paper EVERYWHERE!! She can now open cupboard doors and pulls whatever she can out of them; Opens up her baby wipes and tries to pull out as many as she can before I catch her and say NO! ; Likes to play in doggie food and water dishes (at my sisters house although my sisters dog usually watches her closely and blocks her from getting to his food:) hehe)

Cute things she does: claps her hands, can twist her tongue sideways, likes peek-a-boo, jumps on the couch to music. The other day she lost her balance and fell forward and reached out and caught herself with her arms and hands! I was impressed! No more faceplants for Ally anymore!

Everyone thinks us girls are SO "photogenic". :) ha! I decided to post some not-so-flattering pictures that are also pretty funny....:) (most of these are older ones) I guess you could call these the "outtakes" haha

Ally's first playdate AND pony ride!

Ally had her first playdate with her half-brother Bryson and Bryson's cousin Brock. Bryson and Ally are exactly 9 months apart and Brock and Ally are about 3 weeks apart. With them all being so close in age we thought they would have lots of fun together! Bryson probably had MORE fun because he is the only one who is walking so he could climb and explore more than Ally and Brock could.

This is me and Erin with our kiddo's at the Children's Garden at Thanksgiving point.

Ally and Bryson at the "Kitty's Dance Hall". LOL Their EARS are the same shape and angle! :)

Here Ally is with Brock. LOVE his blue eyes!

All three cuties together....its nearly impossible to get all 3 looking at the camera at the same time!

Okay NOW take the picture...doh! Now ALLY isn't looking!

Here Ally is on her FIRST pony ride!!

She was smiling and really liked it at first...but then after a couple of minutes she decided she wanted off this bumpy ride!

My attempt at pretending to be a photographer at the lily pond. :)

Blond Blond Blond

So, I was so unhappy with Samantha's "blond" highlights, I took her back to the salon to have them add more so she would look more blond since that IS what I paid them to do in the first place...and I'm MUCH happier with the results! I am as dark as a brunette as Samantha WAS, but now we are both part blondy's! :) Ally's hair is also getting more and more blond. Her hair is blond at the roots and brunette at the ends...its my hair in reverse!! haha! So here are my two almost blondys!
