Guess who's talking!!

Alli Posey Hancock is talking these days, baby talk that is. Saturday Jana and I had a garage sale so Gigi came to stay and watch Alli for me. And somehow, she got Alli to start talking, at least we will give her the credit! It is music to my ears and makes me want to cry, tears of joy of course.
After church Alli and I headed to Pop and Fefe's house to stay the night. Alli got a chance to wear her new bathing suit that Hannah Lee gave her. Isn't it precious!! I put her feet in the water to try it out and she cried! I was shocked because she loves baths, but I realized Alli likes hot water, not cold water. So maybe we should start off with a hot tub. Just kidding. I hope we can get her to like it next week while we are at the beach. Sunday Felicia and I layed out for a little while, literally maybe 1 hour. I look like a lobster! And of course I didn't turn over, so I got a tan on one side of my body!!!

4 more work days then off to the beach. Well actually, Meg and Scotty are getting married Saturday so the Hancock household aren't going to leave until Sunday. Below are some pictures of the little Alli. She has discovered her thumb and hand, so most of the time they are in her mouth! Saturday, Jana and I were a little delirious from 3 hours of sleep! So we thought it would be a good idea to have Alli try on all her hats and sunglasses for the beach. As you will see, Alli didn't mind at all.

Alli's favorite cousin. He loves pizza. I think his mom said he ate 2 pieces this night!
Date night a while back. We went to see Cross Canadian, but it started raining before they performed.

Busy as a bee

When did life get so busy? I feel like I have not gotten caught up at work since I got back. That could be because I am learning how to evaluate transcripts as a back up. Also, I think when the word got out I was back, people have been calling off the hook to welcome me back.

Lance has been in Texas since last Thursday working so Alli and I have been spending a lot of time together. We stayed at Jana and Chris' last Friday night and Chris held Alli for the first time!!

On Saturday, Jana watched Alli and Noah while I went to meg and Scotty's couples shower that we helped throw.

Once that was over, Jana and I headed to Farmerville to spend Mother's day with Tinker. On Sunday Alli and Noah dressed up in River Oaks apparel to take a picture with Aunt Boo Boo for her ad. I think the caption should read "Rah Rah Roo, We love you Aunt Boo Boo", but she didn't go for that!

Lance and I are headed to Shreveport this weekend to stay with his parents. If the weather cooperates, Alli is going to take her first swim! Also, my good friend Ashley is having her baby shower. Then later we hope to go to the Cross Canadian Ragweed concert on Saturday, on our 2nd date.

Oh I almost forgot, Alli is sleeping through the night!! I can't believe it!

Also, I want to say Congratulations to Hannah, Nick, and Jackson!! Can't wait for baby #2.

2 Months

I am a little behind on blogging about Alli's 2 month check up. Dr. Slusher says everything looks great!! She was 9lbs and 14 oz! I thought she was bigger than that, but really she's just long and skinny. Definitely doesn't get that from her momma. But she is in the 50 percentile for her height and a little above the 25th percentile for her weight. I have been waiting on the chunky legs, but they just aren't getting there fast enough! Her hair is more red than ever and we can't get enough of it! It's so much fun!!

Alli watching Lance eat. She loves her daddy! Also, last night she slept through the night for the first time. She actually woke up around 4, but when I put her paci in her mouth, she went right back to sleep!! We will see if this becomes a habit! Lance is working in Texas for the next week, so he had to get the yard mowed. Like everywhere else, it's been raining so much so our yard really needed some attention. When Alli and I came around the corner from our daily walk, this is what we saw:
Sorry ladies, he's taken!!
