"Girly Girl" or "Tom Boy"?

         I often wonder what Amelia will be like when she gets older.  Will she be a “girly girl” or a “tom boy”?  Me, I was a little of both.  One of my favorite things to do was climb trees.  If I was outside, I was in a tree somewhere.

         On the other hand, I loved dancing.  Every year, I looked forward to the recital.  My family would all pile up and watch the ballet that I had been practicing for all year.  My part was less than five minutes with 15 other little girls, but I thought I was the center of the show.

         Will she like sports or ballet?  Hubby says she will be a Motorcross star.  Whatever she chooses, she will be the best in my eyes.

Little Miss Social Butterfly

Amelia is really starting to show her personality.  She’s the little social butterfly lately.  The ladies at her new daycare say that the other teachers come in there just to see her.  They said “she’s always happy and makes us smile”.  I couldn’t be more proud.

My Life has Changed

       Two weeks before I was due, I was driving to the grocery store and it dawned on me…. I will never be able to come and go as I please again.  My heart started pounding and my palms got sweaty.  Two weeks passed and I was still pregnant with no signs of contractions at all.  My belly just kept growing and growing….. 
The Cocoa Butter Stretch Mark Cream supply was dwindling.

         On July 29th, 2010 (two weeks AFTER my due date), my hubby and I welcomed the most precious being into this world.
 I knew right then that my life was forever changed. 

      Now, my heart still pounds and my palms stay sweaty, but for a different reason.
I don’t want to miss a second.
I don’t want to cause her any pain.
I want her to be the happiest and healthiest person possible.

(I'll save the labor story for another blog).

Amelia at the Raceway

        My hubby got me into Dirt Track Racing.  I have never been into anything like that, but I really enjoy the smell of the fuel, the pumped up crowds, the super loud exhausts, and the dirt hitting me in the head (if I get too close).
         He really wanted to be able to share this experience with Amelia to see if she would like it (sitting far up in the stands of course).  We see people bring babies to the races all the time, some wearing ear protection and some not.  We didn’t want to take a chance on this affecting her hearing so we bought some Baby Banz Hearing Protector Earmuffs

               She absolutely LOVED them!  I didn’t even want to watch the race because I watched her the whole time.  She kept talking to herself and looking around smiling (probably because that’s all she could hear).  

              She especially liked the late models at the Senioa Raceway.

Grandollin and Grandpa

There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about them.  Almost every childhood memory that I have was with them in some way and I miss them both dearly.        

       Grandpa was gone in September ’09, I found out I was having a baby a month or so after.  He would have been so happy for us.  I wish Amelia could have met him because he would have loved her so much.

       I am very thankful that Grandollin got to meet her.  She kept saying “She’s really going to town on that bottle,” when we came to visit and Amelia was chowwing down.

Disabled Daddy

I was about to get off of work yesterday and my phone rang…..
         “Ahhhhhh!  I need help; I think my leg is broken!  Ahhhhhh!” I heard my husband say on the other end.
         “Where are you?? Have you called 911??”
         “No, I was doing yard work and fell off of the cliff in the back.”
      I immediately called 911 from where I was (in a different city) and here was the conversation:

         “911 what’s your emergency?”
                  “My husband is at home and thinks he broke his leg.  He needs an ambulance ASAP!” I cried.
         “Where is “home”?”” the operator said.
      I began to tell her our address and was interrupted.
         “Ma’am, this is Hapeville 911, you’re going to have to call Newnan 911.  I can’t transfer you, but I can give you the number.”

             Uhmmmmm, I thought 911 WAS the number!!!!!! 

       My poor hubby has a fractured tibia and all he was was doing was trying to make the yard look nice for me :(

Girls Day Out

The weather was beautiful today.  What better way to spend it than with my little baby girl?  
We had an adventure!

         All she had to do was bat those blue eyes….

When she sees the stroller, she knows it’s on!!  Fun time!!

  We love people watching at Target.  
Ok, maybe a little shopping as well….
  Found some really cute bunny ears too!  

       All tuckered out by mid-afternoon. 
Naptime is so sweet!  
I couldn’t imagine my days without her.
