Dear Baby Allegra:

You are 2 weeks old today.  I don't mind when you cry in the middle of the night.  Sometimes all I need to do to quiet you is touch my forehead to yours or place my hand under your little bundled body.

For such an easy baby this sure is getting hard.

Your Mom


  1. Extremely touching words and picture, you are great Alison!

  2. I am Annie Howington's mother and I hope you don't mind that I have looked at this amazing blog you have written about Allegra. What a beautiful blessing she is to your family. My heart aches for you, however, I think she is just one of Heavenly Father's littlest miracles. What an amazing mother you are!

  3. You are such an amazing family. Your words and written thoughts are inspiring to say the least. Baby Allegra is a true miracle and has given each and everyone of us a true gift. The gift of love, the gift of life. Her spirit has brought hope and strength to us all. So much love this precious little angel has already brought to this world! She is so beautiful!

    Praying for your family and always in our thoughts,
    Kara & Darryl Cook
