Show & Tell Friday, Sept. 12th!

It's Show & Tell Friday! Be sure to stop over at Kelli's and checkout the other Show & Tellers.

This week I am sharing one of my favorite pictures. It was a gift from Curtis. He surprised me with it on Easter about 6 1/2 years ago. Just days before Easter, Curtis, Allison and I were walking in the mall. Allison was a little over 8 months old. As we were walking, this picture caught my eye. It was way up on a wall towards the ceiling in a floral shop. I stopped dead in my tracks. I felt like I was looking into my future. I didn't know at the time that days later, Curtis would surprise me with this picture. This picture is what I imagined Allison would grow to be. Curly long auburn hair with rosy round cheeks all dressed up in a girly little dress with lots of lace.
Here is a close-up for comparison. Allison does have the long curly hair and although her hair isn't auburn, she has a lot of auburn in it. I only wish her hair was as thick as the little girl's in the picture. Considering Allison was completely bald when I saw this picture, I wasn't too far off in my imagination. Her cheeks are not quite as round or quite as rosy but I think she's just as pretty as the little girl in the picture.
I love you baby! You are everything I imagined and more!

Thank you Curtis for the beautiful picture and my beautiful little girl!

Have Fun!
