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.

Woodstock's newest fan

Amelia watched the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special at school and decided she really likes Woodstock . The first (and so far only) Christmas card we received featured Woodstock and Amelia was so excited she carried it around for a couple of days.

When I showed her the Dora wrapping paper at Wal-mart the other day she noticed the Peanuts wrapping paper and wondered aloud if Woodstock was on it. She turned it around until she found Woodstock .

This morning, after a snow day with Daddy yesterday that included some Christmas shopping, she told me we needed to get a dog. When I asked why she said because then we could go to Walgreens and get the Woodstock dog toy that she and Daddy saw yesterday. (Yep, best reason to get a dog yet!) She repeated herself to make sure I understood that the point was about Woodstock . “So after we get a dog, we have to go all the way to Walgreens and get Woodstock !” Yes, dear.

So guess who is on-line this morning looking for plush Woodstock toys? (Note to self, when on Amazon, choose ‘toys’ and don’t leave it on ‘books’ when searching Woodstock !) I think I’ve helped Santa find a perfect stocking stuffer for a little girl named Amelia.

A few more Amelia-isms

We don't watch a whole lot of weather and local news in our house, except this time of year. During the weather report last week during all the snow, Amelia heard the newscaster talk about Franklin and she says, "If I could go inside the TV, I would tell her that Franklin is also a turtle."

Instead of aren't, Amelia says amn't, as in, "I am really good at this, amn't I?" (I have corrected her several times on this and it doesn't seem to be working yet.)

Instead of perhaps, she says p'haps.

Instead of whether she says rather, as in, "I don't know rather Daddy is home or not."
