Alethea Christine

otherwise known as Allie

she looks like me & my mom here.

i almost caught the smile here. for a newborn, she is amazingly smiley.  i swear, last night I caught her letting out a little laugh. and don't worry, this was not her outfit.  more like a, "oh dear, looks at these awful clothes on her!"

she loves her brothers and her brothers love her. for the most part she seems very fascinated by these extremely noisy, bouncy creatures.  and they, equally fascinated with her.  James declared her the cutest baby in the world.  now who am I to tell him otherwise?

i wish this photo were in focus.  though the fact that it's not seems appropriate.

After being on the wagon for what seems far too long, I've spent the last several days in a completely intoxicated stupor on baby's breath and newborn smell.  We are all in love.
