Amelia


Little Mia, 
you turned 11 months this weekend. I'm remembering a year ago waiting, a little impatiently, to meet you. I was big and uncomfortable and didn't sleep much. We were so anxious to hold you.
 Now a year later, I'm not as big or uncomfortable, but I still don't sleep much:) You are here and I get to hold you everyday. You prefer Daddy to hold you, but lucky for me he's gone all day, so I get you. You are the most cuddly happy girl. 





You adore your brother and sister and work hard to keep up with them. You do not like to be left behind. Vanessa likes to take care of you and tells me often that "she'll feed you cause she's your sister." When you wake up in the morning or from a nap the kids run to your room and climb in the crib with you. Elijah can make you laugh so so hard. I like listening to you all from the other room.  



You took your first step on Saturday. I want you to take your time and slow down growing a bit, but you wont listen. Your teeth just keep popping through. I think we've been teething for a solid three months. Right now you're working on number 7 and 8. You like to play peek a boo with me while I'm changing your diaper and you think you're pretty funny. You eat anything, as long as you can do it yourself. 



On Friday, Nana took Elijah and Nay. You weren't happy to see them go, but I was thrilled to have a little time with just you. It's rare that I get to just enjoy you without interruptions. We read books, sang songs, and giggled a lot. It reminded me of the quiet days when I just had Elijah. I love our moments together. You're so precious to our family Amelia. 
Love, Mama.
