Allyson is rolling over!!

We are super excited about the new skill Ally has mastered this week. Rolling over. She has done it for the doctor, daycare, and now finally the camera. She seems to really like doing it because whenever we put her on her back she is on her tummy in a second.  video

4 months old today!



I can't believe Ally is 4 months old today. We have been dying to go to the doctor for another check up and the day has finally come. I remember making this appointment in the summer and thinking to myself I will be ready for a day off, and yes I am ready for a day off :). Two weeks in and I am taking my first day. Oh how life has changed. I am taking Ally to the doctor again for her 4 month check up and she will be getting shots. I felt to bad about taking her to daycare after the shots so I just decided to take the day off. I mean what are those family sick days for anyway :). Here are a few pictures we took the other day. Her new favorite thing is trying to stand up. She can't do it on her own, but she loves using her legs to stand up with support from you.

It's football time..


The other night we got to experience our first "in season" game. The reason I say "in season" is that I took Ally to the spring game in May, but I don't really count that one b/c she was soooo little and I was soooo nervous about everything I don't think either of us really enjoyed the game. At least this game she was a little older, ok 4 months, but it does make a difference. She did great at the game and I am excited about even trying to bring her to a few more games. Here are a few pictures of her in her football gear.

So many options



Ally has become a big time thumb sucker. It started when she was just tired, fussy, or hungry but recently it has turned into an all the time thing. Tonight while she was sucking her thumb she was playing with her feet also. She discovered that her toe could go in her mouth also. So the next thing I see is her thumb and toe in her mouth at once. I couldn't believe it, it was one of the funniest things I have seen from her in a while.

Talking video coming soon..

Ally is talking all the time these days. Ok not talking but she is mastering some of her vowels sounds and a few other sounds. It has been a blast trying to get her to make the sounds and try new ones. We will try for a video tomorrow. 

Dedication





On Sunday, Ally was dedicated at Smoke Rise Baptist Church in Stone Mountain. It was kind of a last minute thing to do it on Sunday, but it worked out great and we were thankful for everyone that could come. Ally performed wonderfully. She didn't cry or spit up while in front of the church!! Whew!! We were worried, but she looked beautiful and did a great job. 

Bounce... Bounce... Bounce



This past weekend Justin put together the Jumpero for Ally. It is a toy we have had before she was born and we have been dying to put it together for her to try. Finally the time came. She is still a little small for it, but I think she does like it because of the toys. She has not figured out the bouncing part yet, but she did like the toys and has started touching a trying to hold on to them.
