Amelia has always been so sweet and content. She watches everything very carefully and always thinks before she acts. She is a rule follower (most of the time) and almost always asks for permission to do anything. She is very maternal with Coco and loves to take care of her sister. She also loves to let me know anytime Coco is "doing something". Regularly Amelia will come running out of the playroom shouting "Coco is doing something", when I get in there Coco is on top of the play kitchen throwing pretzels to the dog or standing on the desk throwing books to all her stuffed animals.
Right now Amelia is all about play dough. She wakes up in the morning and asks for her play dough bag and runs upstairs to her desk. She will stay there for hours. One thing about Amelia is that she is not a kid with a short attention span. She can sit focused on a task for a loooong time. She loves learning. She came into the world this way and I love that about her. Amelia has also been getting into activities. She took swim lessons this winter and did so well. I knew she would be comfortable in the water but she even surprised me. She went for it and showed no fear. She may be dad's surf buddy after all.
This morning I woke up to the sound of Coco's crib moving (it's right above our bed) and I knew what that meant. I grabbed my camera for pajama pictures and found this when I walked in. I was nervous about them sharing a room but it has been the best thing. They adore each other and have so much fun together. She is such a fun older sister.
|Two of her favorite things: Jumping on her bed & Beary|
I asked her what she wanted for breakfast and she said her princess dress, bacon, eggs, and blueberries for Beary. She also asked for her crown because it's her 1/2 birthday so she needs it.
She lives in her Rapunzel dress. Day and night. I will usually find her searching her laundry so she can put it on in the morning if she didn't wear it to bed.
Don't forget about Pascal.
Amelia loves singing and dancing (twirling mostly). She has an amazing memory. We will listen to a song a couple of times and she will be singing it word for word. She is incredibly loving and has so much joy. I think if I described Amelia is one word it would be joyful. She gets excited about everything and wears her happiness out loud. She made me a mom and she made me feel like it was an easy job (side note: it's not). I love her more than I thought possible. She is the dream I didn't know I had.
Love you Silly Milly!
