I had an obscene amount of photos to go through this month. Even when I do a picture post, I usually set aside the best shots of Alli for my letter, but I had so many I didn't know what to do with all of them. With that in mind, here are just some of my favorites. I put the cap at 20, but I probably could've posted so many even my mother would've needed to take a stretch break.
To keep you busy, I give you something of mine to play with.
You've definitely taken to my necklaces and like wearing them
around the house. This particular one has become yours because
you bit off all the tiny connecter beads before I could stop you.
We visited the Easter bunny at the mall and, um, how should I put this?
You would have preferred being placed in a vat of boiling water.
And, no, I'm not flashing you in this picture. I was taking my coat off
to show you how it's done. And the camera people took a picture while
the two of us were on the bunny's lap -- me in my wreck of a hairdo
and you screaming profusely. We happily paid 30 bucks for that keepsake.
I took this picture while we waited in line for Orange Juliuses.
The employees looked at me like I was crazy when they saw
the flash going off. To which Dad cringed in horror and I laughed.
Thankfully, they didn't spit in our cup. And you and me sucked it down.
I may have lied about books being your second-favorite toys.
Your three baby dolls are right up there, too. You give them kisses,
say "baby" constantly and even let me clip your nails after you watch
me pretend to clip theirs first. I felt like a parenting genius that day.
I have a few more non-image anecdotes that didn't make it into the letter, so hopefully I'll be able to update with them sometime later today.
