The week of Amelia's birthday party we found out that we are having another GIRL! It was so fun to be able to get some pictures of our new little one to compare with our ultrasound pictures of Amelia. We'll see how alike they are come March!
Amelia woke up on her birthday not in a very good mood, runny nose, cough etc. Our first cold of the season. She has since proceeded to pass it on to mom and dad!
We had all of our family over for her party and Amelia loved the attention, and even though she had had a busy day (drs appt with four shots, family pictures, dinner out AND not feeling well) she did really well!
"Helping daddy open her present from Grandma, play food and some pretty dresses!
Her new dolly from Chris and Dr. Smith, it has eyes that close when you lay it down and open when she sits up, Amelia thinks they are just amazing!
The cow cake R.I.P. after getting it all together it lost an ear and it's face :( It still tasted just as good and Amelia didn't notice one bit!
My neat child. She ate the whole peace of cake without making too much of a mess. Actually her cousins who are older than her came away from the party messier than she was!
Tim and I cannot believe she's a year old already. It doesn't seem real. She changed so much, she's starting to talk and is very interactive with her "friends" but is still very much a mommy's girl!
Okay, I think I've caught you up now. I'll try my hardest to keep all of you up to date a little more regularly!
Until next time...

Amelia turned 10 months right after we got back from our LOOOOOOONG trip to Minnesota to see Tim's brother, his wife and kids. She did great in the car surprisingly and loved playing with their little poodle!
October 6 Amelia took her first steps and has been walking like crazy ever since. She only wants to do it when SHE wants to do it though. She is quite particular as of late.
We had one warm day in October where it was almost 70 so we took advantage of it and took Amelia to Post Family Farm to pick out a couple pumpkins and enjoy some fresh baked doughnuts (that was her favorite part)! She fell in the woodchips right before this picture so it wasn't the happiest day for her but she recovered well, other than a couple of scratches on her face she was fine.
With her new skill of walking also comes boo-boos. Amelia's first big ouchie. She and the dining room table collided and the table won. She screamed for a good long time but the bruise only lasted a couple of days.
Halloween came next. Amelia was suppose to be a pink poodle, I made her costume, unfortunately my particular baby dind't like the feel of the "fur" so Auntie Cara came to the rescue and loaned us the boys' lion costume. I had to add the bow for a little girlish flair!
Birthday Party Pictures Still to come!
