Never let a good hoodie go to waste

This is our neighbor Nicholas. I love this picture
because he's missing the teeth Allison has.

This entire cluster of flowers is about the size of a dime.
I spotted a patch of them in my mother-in-law's yard.

One of her trees blooms magnificently this time of year.

I'm surprised Alli's mouth isn't open.
This move is usually followed by a squeal
and a splat of drool as Jerry dry heaves.

So, years ago, my mom was all, "I got bleach on my sweatshirt,
I have to throw it out." And I was all, "I'll take it!"

You look totally amazing in that last photo. Good-bye baby fat! Can't wait to see you next month. The last three times I saw you, you were carrying Allison (or the remnants of Allison).

Nice to finally see a photo of you, with the many of Allison and Jerry (not that I don't enjoy those as well). =)

That photo of Allison and Nicholas is BEYOND ADORABLE!! I love the caption you wrote for it. And if I hadn't been reading your blog for about two years and a half years, I would have thought that they were siblings, hehe.

Take, care.

Wow. You are just looking so great, Kelly! The picture of you and Allison is radiant.

And I love the picture of Jerry and Allison, too. It seems like he is so good with her.

The entire blog, I was wondering why that was your title, lol.
And your daughter is soooo effing adorable it's not even funny.

Funness all around! Especially the kid photo - too cute!

A hoodie is not a hoodie unless it bears at least one battle scar.

You mentioned Allison figuring out cause and effect the other day, and I think she has already discovered that a great pose will get more pictures. You could not have planned a better pose for that photo with the neighbor kid!

We once had a giant spreading pink dogwood in teh yard and I forgot how vibrant the color was. I like the shot of the wildflowers, great close-up.

But that last photo of Kelly and Allison together is the best! She is looking quite the young lady; bears a strong resemblence to you, both there and in your profile pic, too! Look at those eyes!

I couldn't help but notice the return of the infamous puppy hat. It's nice to know that young Allison made peace with it.

Hi Kelly, I love the pics. Have you thought about printing the dogwood pic and put it in a cool frame and hang it in Allis room. It would look pretty with the colors in her room.

You know, that's a good idea!

Awesome, we haven't seen a picture of you with Allison for awhile--you're usually behind the camera! You look great!

Oh the pictures came out soooo awesome! No matter how many times I see a picture of Allison I keep thinking "She can't get any cuter" yet every time... she does.

Thanks for sharing them!!
