My dowry

Dear Blog,

My dad often asks me, in the presence of Aaron, what did I bring to our marriage? I don't cook, I clean alright, I'm like take 'em or leave 'em on the subject of kids and I have no discernible talents other than dressing myself up all nice and pretty like. I tell him that I offered MYSELF to this marriage and, DUH!, that is more than enough. Hey, Aaron knew what he got when he was marrying me so don't feel sorry for him.

I have a feeling that at some point in our marriage I'm gonna pop out some lil' Alison and Aaron's. I already know who the favorite parent is gonna be and's not me.

So my bff 4 life just had a baby! That's right, Faris just had herself a little chillin'. She had a cute little baby girl named Eliza Faris Connor. She shore is tiny and cute. Yesterday I was in quite the baby loving mood and I kept trying to hold little Eliza and she wasn't happy with her Auntie Mate and together we look like this;

I'm looking all like, what the heck am I doing with this baby? And Eliza is just throwing up everywhere. Together we are not an army of one. But give the baby to Aaron and look what happens;

Together, they are an army of one. Aaron is like, "Man! I love me some babies! I'm good at everything! Everyone loves me! I'm Aaron!" and Eliza is all "ganalsfgu;abna sfd gooooooooooooooooooooahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh"

Sigh. Eliza really is a cute little nugget of baby munchkin love and we had so much fun getting to know her!!
Lucky for you readers, we took some video of potential #1 Dad and his practice child. I apologize in advance for my laughing in the background.

Alison, tell that Faris that she has a cute house and a cute baby!

also tell her i went to Furman, so she doesn't think i'm some rando internet weirdo

kate said...

Um yeah, so your child may be neglected from all normal motherly duties, but just wait until he or she is old enough to buy their own clothes. They will have Style with a capital S!

Of course, you'd better have a boy or you'll be fighting over that new purse!

Alison said...

warren: mate checks the blog so she'll see your comment and know you're not some weird rando!

kate: what are you talking about? clearly we look so natural!

daniel: what's a little catfight between moms and daughters over a little bag?

Now that I have re-read this post, I'm dying laughing. And it's even funnier that you had a preggy scare. Oh how I wish... So glad to catch up on the blog!!
