We Procreated

Well, following the commandment to be fruitful and multiply - and much to the delight of our grandparents, parents, and siblings - we created Amelia. She joined our family approximately 16 months ago. We also have baby #2 on the way, but not much is going on there unless you have an immense interested the many degrees of nausea a person (specifically me) can experience. I'm going to assume my nausea is not in the general interest of this audience and so we'll turn our attention back to Amelia.

Amelia is an angel - a delight in every way. She never cries or whines and her moods consist of happy and happier. She is smart as a whip and even did our taxes this year. Okay, okay, well none of that stuff is actually true. In fact, if there is one thing Amelia excels it is making her opinion known often and with much noise and flailing of the extremities.

Things Amelia loves: being outside, shoes, balls, her Raggedy Ann doll, guitars, music, books, pulling the bookmark out of Mommy's book, baths, taking dishes out of dishwasher, pulling wipes out of the wipes warmer, and helping putting the laundry in the dryer. Foods: bananas, yogurt, mandarin oranges, strawberries, green beans, cheese, chocolate chip cookies and strawberry milkshakes.

Things Amelia does not like: being told "no", riding in the car (especially when there is a lot of getting in and out of the car), getting her diaper changed, bedtime, riding in shopping carts, getting her hands and face washed after mealtimes, and when Mommy isn't giving her complete attention.

Amelia loves her Mommy and thinks her Daddy is okay too.

And now for the photos.

Hey lady!! I am sooo glad you found me:) It is great to see how big Amelia is getting! I kept going back and forth on her photos- "she looks JUST like Eric" no wait "she looks JUST like Elizabeth"! Very cute! So how far along are you? Do you know if it's a boy or girl? I need your email address so my sisters can send you an e-vite to my baby shower in June. Also, I need Catherine's- I tried to look her info up in Cary 2nd ward but couldn't find her- where is she? Good to see you!
