Amelia - 10 Months

Two digits, this makes me confused. There is no way this little girl is 10 months old, well, since I am now behind she is actually 10 months and about a week. Gross.

I am already planning the birthday party, it will be great! She won't remember any of it. That does not slow my attempts at making this the most awesome 1st birthday. I will take too many pictures and videos. Maybe she will pee on the carpet for the camera like I did on my first birthday. It can be full circle.

Amelia is growing and learning so fast. Her baby sign language is coming right along. I had started giving up on it, she wasn't signing back at me, but she understood what I was signing to her. She is just stubborn and wanted to do things on her own time, she must get that from her father. (pffff). We went to Logan's Roadhouse on Wednesday and little girl has a hollow leg. She ate EVERYTHING we put in front of her. When Ben was eating his roll, she kept signing more and pointing at the roll. She likes loves to eat.

She really hates it when we have to wake her up in the mornings. Recently she has been sleeping late and we have to go in and wake her up, it might be that Ben, me, AND Grissom all go in at the same time, but we are all so excited to see her.

She has TEETH... yes plural. They hurt when she bites, just in case any of you were wondering. Baby teeth are sharp, and for the first time since we stopped breastfeeding I am content with not putting my nipples anywhere near her new weapons.

Amelia the Adorable.

This post has nothing to do with anything. I just think Amelia is one of the most amazing people I have ever met. I love her more than I knew you could love. Look at this peanut. She is amazing.

Spring Break was two weeks ago....

Yes, I am very behind in posting this, but at least I am posting. Ben, Amelia and I went on our first family vacation (other than the lake) to St. Louis. We visited Lindsay, Josh and the girls! It was about a 5 hour drive and we were able to stop and see Grammy Gaynelle on the way down. We had dinner and did bath time with Amelia there, then put Amelia in the car and drove through the night. She was such a great traveler. Have I ever mentioned how much of a blessing she is? While in St. Louis, we did some shopping, visited The Arch, went to the St. Louis Zoo and played on the trampoline.

I loved visiting with Lindsay and talking with Josh about his new future! Lindsay and Josh just had their own trip to Bluffton and are now looking to move here as Josh will be coming into civilian world soon. We are excited to have family close, especially the cousins!

Spring has come!

Yes, it is finally getting warmer and instead of sitting on my computer during the evenings, I am out and about with the family. Amelia is now crawling like crazy and well, that too has made it difficult to sit and blog. We are going to the lake this weekend, so I hope to get lots of photo editing complete and then I will have lots of blogging to do!
