Mike got a video camera for Christmas, which is going to change the face of this blog. From now on, there will be no more words. Only videos of Allie! Allie blinking. Allie turning her head to the side. Allie looking down. All Allie all the time. Here are just a couple to get you started.

Don't worry, there's more where that came from. Luckily for you, the majority of the videos we take have to be censored out for one of two reasons: 1) ridiculous baby talk that makes us sound like utter nincompoops 2) gratuitous kissing of the baby (I realize watching the videos that I must be obnoxious to be around with my kiss-a-second mothering technique).
Over the holiday weekend, we got to spend time with family who have lots of baby experience. Mike and I are baby newbies, so we don't really know how to guage her personality, as we have no comparison. But over the course of the couple of days, she was diagnosed as: sweet, pleasant, good tempered, and (in my father-in-law's words) "the most pleasant tempered baby I've ever seen." Awwww. It makes me all warm and cuddly. I hope you enjoy the videos!
