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.

Party Girl

We had her party today and we were almost late! It's been raining here since Wednesday and we bought discount tickets to the fair ahead of time so we took the opportunity of no rain this morning to go. Amelia had a blast (as long as we were riding rides) but was full of mud by the time we headed home so we quickly changed into a dress, out of her jeans and went barefoot for the party.

She had three little friends and an assortment of adults (family friends plus both grandmothers) and wasn't overwhelmed with gifts, which is a good thing. She did want to read her books before moving onto other presents, but other than that, present opening went smoothly.

Tia Polly got a beautiful cake with a picture of Amelia on it. We haven't eaten that part yet. Amelia did (somewhat) discreetly run her finger along the middle of the edge of half the cake, removing and taste testing the icing. She couldn't understand why I wouldn't let her finish doing that once I caught her.

Grandma came up from Florida for the party and she babysat Amelia yesterday while I worked. They had a lot of fun playing Cooties (which Amelia calls Cuties).

It's hard to believe that Amelia is truly almost four years old now!
