My child frightens me a little bit. Not in a bad way, at all. But I think Allegra has unlimited potential. There's something special about her. Of course, all of my kids are special in their own way. But Allegra has that sparkle. She's seriously charismatic. Right now she's insistent that she wants to be a star. I know, I know, a lot of kids go through that stage. And normally I'd just brush it off. But I think Allegra actually has a chance of pulling it off. She's always busy "modelling" (I found the photo above on my camera, apparently she was trying to model and asked Ian to take pictures), writing movie scripts, and acting them out with her brother. She talks about moving to LA when she's older. It's going to be a fun ride, watching that girl grow up. And I have another child that frightens me too, and her name is Elle. Elle cut her first tooth yesterday and I'm terrified! I've NEVER had a child get a first tooth this early. Usually it happens closer to 10 months or so. And she's still very much nursing, and I'm scared. I keep trying to tell myself that women nurse babies and toddlers with teeth every day, and it'll be fine. It'll be fine. Yes, it will (I hope).

Well, if anybody could do it it will be Allegra. She sure looks the part already!
