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.

Connect 4

Probably about a year ago on a visit to Moe's for a burrito lunch we let Amelia amuse herself with the Connect 4 game they had there. (There were a bunch of games lined along the ledge of the half-wall between the line of folks getting food and the tables.) She had a blast putting the red and black "quarters" in and then letting them fall out only to do it all over again. A few months ago, we were sad to see that Moe's stopped supplying games and even Amelia noticed that she didn't get to play with her red and black "quarters".

When Grandma asked what Amelia wanted for Christmas I suggested Connect 4 and Grandma came through. Amelia opened it this morning (yep, she is still opening gifts ... we took a break yesterday and she only opened one today). She was thrilled with it and has had a blast all day - even making patters like L's and T's.

In other news, I paid my car off today. How exciting! Two days before Amelia was born I re-financed it - a suggestion by the Husband that I liked because it would allow for a smaller loan payment since I would be cutting my hours after having Amelia (and my 3-week maternity leave was unpaid except for some judiciously spread-out sick and vacation days). I made an effort to pay more on the principle whenever possible and it has paid off - literally! Yippee!

Congrats on paying off the car loan! I hope that it lasts for a long, long time so that you can really enjoy your time without a payment.
