Happy First Birthday, Amelia Marie!!!!
What a momentus occassion!!!! Amelia turned one-year-old on Friday, Jan. 30 and we cannot believe how quickly time has gone. She has grown up so much since that night one year ago when we held her for the first time at the hospital and wondered what the future held for our baby girl. Now Amelia's walking, communicating, feeding herself and eagerly learning about the whole, wide world.
To celebrate, we had family and a few friends over. (The party was planned for the park, but it was rainy and COLD so we moved it inside.) Amelia LOVED all the balloons, the visitors and the cake - especially the frosting. She's still pointing at all the balloons around the house and tries to blow out candles after we sing her "Happy Birthday." This little girl loves a good time!
A few days later Amelia went to the doctor for her 12-month doctor's appointment. She got two shots and was not happy. We're proud to report that Amelia is still in the 90th percentile for weight and height at 24 pounds, 12 ounces and 30 and 1/2 inches! She charmed all the nurses with how much she can understand and made the doctor laugh by blowing her kisses. It was really pretty cute.
Enjoy the photos!
