On Friday we had two parties to attend. First things first, though, Alla doesn't just wake up with party hair, she wakes up with crazy hair, as Ron calls it. So I thought I'd show you all what that means. It actually doesn't look that crazy to me. I love it. But lately he's been saying, please make her look more like a girl and less like a member of the Partridge Family.
Morning hair or not, though, she's still cute. And even cuter with these pigtails and a party dress!This was the first party, for Al's friend Wyatt, who is now one like the rest of 'em. He's an amazing baby who's been walking - ok, running - for months now! Here Alla is playing with Mattie Sue - aren't they sweet?
On Friday night we went to The Stahr's for Jamie's very important Potty Party. What a big girl you are, James!
On Saturday we headed up to Wrightwood to visit my family for one last weekend. Alla and cousin Emily had a GREAT time together. It's hilarious that Emily still calls her "Baby Alla." By the end of the weekend we started to wonder if maybe she thinks that's part of her name and will be calling her that for sometime. Here they are playing in the sand/water tray on the front porch (I think she needs a sand and water tray now!). Emily said to Baby Alla, "Pick up the shovel and don't waste time, Baby Alla." Ha Ha!!
Really is there anything better than an evening spent on the deck with your cousin with gramma there to supervise?Sunday morning Alla was up waaaay before Em, so she made her way out to Em's play kitchen. [Um, I also now think Alla needs one of these.] She made us breakfast (though what I was really hoping for was coffee) which mainly consisted of dirt in a pot (thankfully we had a much yummier breakfast later), but boy did she have fun making it. She banged those pots around like she meant business. See why I think she needs a play kitchen for our new backyard?
Really more dirt ended up on her jammies, but, hey it was a good time.
We capped off the evening at the Laughreys where we had a lovely tostada night and Wally made yummy apple crisp! We are going to miss you friends!!!
Off to Oceanside today to visit another friend and her new two week old baby girl...with camera in tow, of course.
