Sweet, curious, mischievous Allison is currently weighing in at 22lbs 10oz and measuring 31 inches, placing her right around the 75th percentile for both height and weight. Finally, within the last week, her first tooth started poking through! I have so enjoyed her gummy grin, but am looking forward to seeing what she looks like with teeth.
We held two birthday parties for Alli when she turned one (one for my side, and one for Bill's side). Alli did great with both parties, with her favorite part of both being the cake smash. She was a little hesitant to dig in at first, but once she started smashing, she smashed with gusto. It was really cute to watch. Big brother Andrew was a huge help in opening Alli's gifts, instantly claiming several toys as his own. Alli is so laid back that she doesn't really care, and in most cases she will choose to play with Andrew's toys (specifically cars) over her own toys.

Alli is soooo close to walking and has gotten really good at walking all over the house with her little push toy. She will stand up on her own in the middle of the room and I'll tell her, "Walk, Alli! Take a step!" What does the little stinker do? Crawl to her push toy, stand up and begins to walk with the toy.
Speaking of little stinkers....oh my goodness is she a curious and mischievous child! There have been countless times where I am thanking the Lord that we did a good job babyproofing the house. Andrew was never really one to get into things and I could leave outlets untouched, bedroom doors open, cabinets unlatched, etc. Alli, on the other hand, gives me a daily workout chasing her around. I've found her playing with the garbage can, splashing in the dog's water, exploring in the pantry, and climbing up on her brother's bed. She is a little spitfire and her crazy antics cause me to constantly be on the alert, but to laugh at the same time because she's so quick at getting into things before you can catch her.
