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.

18 Months old TODAY!

I cannot believe Amelia is 18 months old. Wow. She is such a little girl now. The bear that I've used all along to photograph her growth she now wrestles to the ground. It is SO cute. In this picture she is holding the sign that has her name, date & the fact that she is 18 months old .... does a lot of good, doesn't it?
Today in kindermusik she did some of the movements rather than just watching or clapping or waving. She totally understands everything you say to her. If she needs a diaper, she runs into her room. And she RUNS everywhere. I put her down in the grocery store the other day and just about laughed as her cute little jean butt took off down the empty aisle faster than you can imagine for such a little one!

Daddy has taught her how to say hello, but she only says it for him. She did, however, demonstrate her new word this past Sunday in church - during the quiet moment just after the pastor closed the opening prayer with an "Amen".

She and Daddy are pretty tight these days. She constantly brings him books to read to her. She also likes to sit on his lap while he eats his cereal at the crack of dawn. It's really cute to stumble out and see them together in the almost dark kitchen (she apparently has inherited his 'morning person' gene). And he's taught her about stars in her books and she notices the one on his shorts that he wears around the house (the star is part of the logo). Sometimes she points to the top of the bookcase and I thought she was pointing at the stuffed wildcat and then realized one day last week she sees the stars on the American flag that we have in a glass triangle case. (The flag is from Grandfather's funeral almost four years ago.) What a smart girl!

She's started laughing at pictures in books or certain scenes in her Baby Einstein videos. It's too cute when it happens - the pure delight in her laugh is wonderful.

And the pots and pans ... OH she loves them! She gives excellent concerts (not that I am biased).
