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.

2 Years, 7 Months

Amelia is 2 years and 7 months old today. Wow!

She is so much fun, has so much energy and is just amazing. I am worn out but happy.

This past weekend we took her to the beach for the first time and it was so much fun for all of us. She adored the sand, the water, the waves, and we adored watching her run in and out of the water, laughing and chanting, "Ocean! Ocean! Ocean!". Then she'd say, "Ocean is a river." We tried to explain that it wasn't, but she wasn't buying it. And we have no idea where she got this idea from, either. A few times the intersection of water going back out and water coming in would cause her to lose her balance and she'd get a little more wet than she intended and also get salt water splashed in her face. She'd look a little surprised for a moment, shake it off and keep going.

Her vocabulary and interaction continue to grow and develop. It's fun to hear her say a phrase that either she's heard from us or somewhere else. One of our favorites (that she got from Nana) is "What are you fussing about?"

(And I am so grateful that my computer is back up and running - it crashed Sunday night after we got home.)

Very cool! She looks like she was definitely having fun with that tide.

Lila calls any body of water "ocean".
