Miss Amelia is doing great. She is so much fun these days. She runs everywhere and is into everything. This is a pic from when she unrolled half a roll of toilet paper into the family room the other night.
Who me? I didn't do it.
She says "hi" and "bye" and waves to everyone and everything. She says Daddy pretty regularly but Mama only comes after prompting from me. She will say Dora and ducky when she feels like it, and out of nowhere the other day I said "thank you" when she handed me something and I got a sweet little "tain oooh!" back :-) She sleeps through the night for the most part now (it only took a year!). And she eats like a champ. The child will eat anything. One night she demolished five chicken nuggets, some squash, cheese cubes, and peaches! She is also starting to throw some Grade A tantrums when she doesn't get what she wants. Oy. But otherwise she is a pretty happy kiddo and I love her to bits.
Here are some obligatory pumpkin patch pics from last weekend.
Her shirt said, "Cutest pumpkin in the patch." I have to agree.
As far as other life stuff, I started a new job a couple of weeks ago. I am now an admin assistant at a vocational/technical high school. It was a good move for me for several reasons: I get paid more, it is closer to home (I use HALF the gas I used to) and perhaps most importantly, I get school breaks off. Which means I get Christmas and spring break and six weeks in the summer!!! I am already planning fun things for next summer with the munchkin like swim lessons and maybe potty training ;-)
If you're still checking in with me, thank you! If there's anything you want to hear more about, please let me know, and I will try to post more regularly soon!
