Notes for ALISHA NICOLE MONTGOMERY:|
I was in the delivery room when Alisha was born. It was the most wonderful thing I had ever seen. I was the second person to hold her. The doctor handed her to me. I remember that I had taken a camera into the delivery room and was planning on taking pictures but as I watched, everything left my head except for the mircale taking placing and having to watch my child being born. One of the nurses asked if I was going to take pictures and the sort of made me come back to life, so to speak.
After we brought Alisha back home, she and I would lay on the couch together. She would lay on my chest and sleep and I would watch television. It got so that she would not sleep unless I was there. .

Notes for BRANDY RYANN MONTGOMERY:|
Brandy was born April 21, 1989 in South Williamson, Ky, Application Regional Hospital. I was not allowed in the delivery room because the doctors were taking her. I was waiting outside the delivery though. When the nurse came out, Brandy was in incubater, the nurse leaned over, as if wispering to Brandy and said, "Look there is your father."
I do believe that Brandy understood her because she opened her eye, turn her head toward me, pulled out her thumb from her mouth, and then while looking right at me, she stuck her tounge at me. It was the funniest thing I have ever seen.
From the earliest age she has shown an above average intelligence. We had her tested and the Doctors thought that she may have ADD, Attention Disorder Defficet. They wanted her on medicene but I did not want to subject her to that at such an early age and Denise agreed. So we told the doctor that we would only use that as a last resort. We else could we try. The doctor said that Brandy was like a spounge. The more information that she recieved the more she needed. The best way to provide stimulation was to give her books to read and puzzles. I then asked about a computer and the doctor said that would be great. And so that is how Brandy first started on computers. I must say, even though I work with computers every day, she knows alot more than I do. But then what parent can't say that about there child. As it turned out Brandy did not have ADD, she is as normal as anyone else, maybe a little smarter...
One of the things that Denise like to do was enter Brandy into baby contests. The very first one that Denise entered her in was the Baby Miss West Virginia Contest in Charleston. It was an all day affair. Our plan was for Denise to be on stage with Brandy and me behind the judges waving at her and smiling, etc. Which I did, and it worked. Brandy would have the biggest smile, and she would wave like it was the most exciting thing she had ever done. When all the children had had their turn on stage it was time for the judges to announce the winners. Of course all the babys were winners because there is no such thing as an ugly baby. But it was the judges job to pick the baby that was to represent West Virginia in Daytona, Florida for the Baby Miss USA Contest.
Denise and I thought that if Brandy won anything that she would get either second or first place. Then it came time for announcement for the winner of the Baby Miss WV Contest. The fifth runner up was not Brandy. The fourth runner up not Brandy. The third runner up was not Brandy. Now was the time that I started to get a little nervous, I knew that Brandy would be either first or second runner up. The second runner up was not Brandy. I now knew that Brandy was the first runner up. NOPE, I was wrong the first runner up was not Brandy. Then the announcer said " The WINNER OF THE 1990 BABY MISS WEST VIRGINIA IS BRANDY MONTGOMERY!" I was in shock, not that I didn't think that she didn't deserve it cause I did.
