Today I'm Three!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aunt Di & Allyson

This little angel girl is one of the reasons I get out of bed every day!  She is Charlotte and Ricky's youngest grandchild, daughter of their second son Jared.  This picture was made in October, 2009.

Today is a BIG DAY in her ALLYSON ANN is THREE YEARS OLD!!!!!!!!!!!


Allyson is such a sweet child, very quiet and introverted until she gets to know you.  Then, she becomes a well-spring of endless chatter and music!  Ohhhhh, does this little girl LOVE to sing!  She is constantly singing and/or asking you to sing.  She's very particular about who sings, when they sing and what they sing.  If you do it wrong, she will quickly throw up those little hands, palm out, fingers slightly spread, thumb bent in slightly toward the palm and command you "NO! NO! NO!  You gotsta do it wike this"!!!!

She has a big brother (Braden) and is anxiously awaiting the birth of her little sister this summer.  The little sister is, as yet, unnamed.  She loves her brother, but sometimes doesn't like him very much, expecially when he runs the battery down on her car!!!!  She will quickly announce "I'm mad at my Bubba"!  She has decided she must rock 'her' baby and give 'her' baby a bottle and even change 'her' babies' diaper when she peepees in it.  But, NOT when she doodies though!

I love this little girl more than I sometimes feel my heart can hold, yet I know that is untrue because I thought the same thing when my sister's children were born and when Charlotte's grandchildren were born .  It's just all too true what they ain't love 'till you give it away!  Then, it just keeps growing and expanding your heart and soul.  You never get full, there's always room for more!

Happy Birthday, Allyson!  I love you back together!!!! 
(Her Nannie, my sister Charlotte, always tells her she loves her to pieces and I always say "I love you back together.  )

Atta girl, Di!!! Those are EXACTLY the kinds of things you need to keep looking for to keep getting out of bed each morning. She sure is a little cutie.
