I obviously haven’t done a comprehensive Orphaned Photos post in a while, since my Orphaned Photos Folder goes back to before Christmas.

Ali, woken up in the middle of the night, a bit drowsy but TOTALLY excited to go to Gramamma and Pop’s so that Mommy could go to the hospital and have Baby Noah:

Noah LOVED his new Monkey…
Ali got a fairy wand, with which she turned us all into Frogs.
And…Noah now – so much bigger:
