Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

She's so Nosy!

Amelia almost never misses a thing. She notices and observes everything, or so it seems. She especially likes cars and trucks that go whizzing by. If you're holding her, she will about fling herself out of your arms as she tries to follow path of the truck.

When we're visiting Nana and she sees something that catches her interest, she will look with that very earnest expression, craning her neck and even pushing off of whomever she is on, to get a better look. Nana will then exclaim, "She's so nosy!" in that fun way of observing what a baby is doing. It's really such a funny phrase and it cracks me up every time!

There's another "Nana saying" I really like. During or after one of Amelia's rather enthusiastic outbursts of babbling or just plain delighted screaming, Nana will say, "Ohhh, such a dainty voice!!!" Amelia does have a dainty voice - she just doesn't always use it. It's her dainty voice that I really love to hear, so quiet and soothing. But I equally love her expressions of joy and excitement and I hate to quell them, even in a restaurant full of diners who probably don't appreciate her forms of expression as much as I do. In those situations I reluctantly distract her with a Gerber puff which so far is foolproof. Even if she has both hands full with a toy, she will drop something to grab that puff which immediately goes into her already open mouth. There's no passing "Go" and no collecting $200 for this puffaholic!

Raspberries are another one of Amelia's favorite forms of expressions. The puffs don't always work to stop these as the puff can easily be inserted into the mouth with only a moment's cessation of the raspberry already in progress. So watch out if you're in the splash zone!
