Big Helper

While I'm cooking dinner Amelia always wants to either stand at my feet and whine for me to hold her because she wants to see what I'm doing or do something that she's not supposed to do and I can't stop her because my hands are dirty.  So the other night I was cooking and I just picked her up and sit her on the counter, I was busy putting to together pw's meatloaf (yum) and Nathan was also standing in the kitchen 'watching' Amelia.  She's very good at sitting and playing if you give her something to entertain herself with, so I knew she would be fine, but just in case I told Nathan, "watch her."  This is what happens when daddy 'watches' her!


We've had our fair share of snow this winter and I didn't ever take Amelia outside to 'play' in it.  1) it was too cold to get her out in it, 2) we do not have proper snow 'gear' and 3) I don't really enjoy being cold!  But one night after Daddy got home from work he went out and got us a big bowl of snow and brought it into the kitchen so Amelia could see what this stuff was all about.  As you can tell from the pictures she wasn't a huge fan!  I'm ready for spring and I know Amelia is too, she LOVES being outside!


So Excited

Nathan and I learned on Januruay 11th that we're going to be parents again!  We are so excited and can't wait for the new addition to our family.  I of course told Amelia the very next morning. I said, "Amelia did you know your going to be a big sister?" and she looks up at me and just shakes her head yes, like duh Mom.   I had to laugh.  Can't get anything past her!  The 'new kid' as we're calling it right now is due on September 18th, that will put Amelia at right about 22 months old.  We'll have 2 under 2 for 2 months!  We got Amelia a shirt to wear to tell everyone that she was going to be a big sister.  Here she is in her shirt looking at everything BUT the camera!


I haven't been a good blogger lately.  Amelia is keeping us busy and on our toes.  She's so much fun and I need to do a better job at recording the little things she does to make us laugh.  She is at such a fun age right now, walking everywhere, trying to run at times and laughing and squealing at everything.  I tried to get a few pictures of her walking the other day, but it's hard to do because she's always right there!  Here's what I managed to get.

She really is a great baby (can I still call her that, I think she might be a toddler), eats everything and anything and sleeps for 12 plus hours at night, with two naps during the day.  We've had snow the past few weeks, and I have not got Amelia out to play in it, I know I'm a bad mom, but I have no 'snow gear', and it's been WAY too cold.  I figure there is always time for playing in the snow when she's bigger! (I wrote this a while ago, if you can't tell.)  I'm going to update the blog now, so lots more news and post to come!!
