Happy birthday Amelia Therese! Two years old...as of today...more than one month after your birthday, I find myself in unchartered territory. At the time of your birth, Joseph was two years and twenty five days old. That is the biggest gap between the seven of you children. You are now two years and 34 days old and I don't have a brand new baby in my arms or the prospect of a new one arriving. You are our baby, but you're not a baby anymore.
You are a walker, talker, climber, helper, nurturer. You are a snuggler and the biggest sweetheart. Your dimples give away the smile that lies behind your pacifier, which has turned into a standard fixture it seems. You're really the only one to have used a pacifier. You wanted to nurse right up to your second birthday, and for the most part I was totally fine with that. It just got a little complicated when you would be trying to push me into a chair and proceed to try to tear my shirt off! :)
|Trick candles...and a very dirty face!|
|Your babies are always lined up, cared for, covered up, held, rocked and tucked into bed. They're usually naked too!|
|Always right in the middle of helping with cooking and baking|

Happy 2nd birthday to my favorite Amelia in the whole world!!!
