I feel like I'm a little heavy on the Amelia posting lately, but I think that's because she is still changing so rapidly. I'm in awe of her motivation to "get things done". She's not quite a year yet, and maybe I've forgotten, but she seems so much busier than Hadley was at this age. There is so much to explore. On her own even. Hadley was very interested in being right with me. No adventuring all alone for her. Amelia, however, is so very busy and usually content to play by herself. She's taken a few steps at random times. Mostly she just grins at us and sits back down when we try to get her walk. She definitely loves chase, though. Her favorite thing to do is get a way as quickly as possible. Even if she's not in trouble. I wish I could capture her rapid scuttle and wicked laughter as we "go after" her.

The other thing she loves to do is chatter. Phil and I decided yesterday that she might talk more than Hadley. That's beyond frightening. Really, really frightening. Oh the stories she tells in her jumbled jargon. All with wild hands flinging and facial expressions adding to the effect. It's really adorable.

Sleeping is getting better. We still argue about what time to get up in the morning. She says 6:00. I say 7:00. We usually compromise at 6:30. Still too early for Mommy, but an exercise in patience for Amelia. She's got a lot to do I tell you. Eating not the least of it.

I'm constantly amazed at how much I love my girls. It catches me by surprise when I least expect it. Such a good and happy surprise.

As Hadley said this morning, "I don't want baby days to end. They are going too fast.". That's when you know you had better slow down. When the 5 year old gets it you know it's true.

  1. I can't believe that she is almost a year old. They change so much, so fast. I agree with Hadley that it is hard to let go of the baby days, but I guess the upside of it is that it is fun to see them learning new things and developing their amazing little personalities.
