In addition, when she told Uncle Cash and Aunt Annie thank you for the card and money for her birthday, they asked what she was going to buy with the money and she replied, "Chocolate chips". My girl!
Amelia, you are thoughtful, making sure that everyone is taken care of. You are generous, sharing your toys, your snacks and your blanket. You are polite saying please and thank yous. You are independent, getting dressed by yourself. You are helpful, always pulling up a chair to be my kitchen assistant. You are inquisitive asking "why" about most everything that happens. You are social, always wanting to talk to whomever is on the phone. You are eager, counting the days until you get to go to Cowboy Grandpa's farm. You are bright, counting to high numbers and recognizing "A for Amelia". You are talented, singing songs all day long...in tune even! You are a little girl wanting your nails painted and playing dress up and a little tom-boy that can toot on cue with the best of the boys! There isn't much that your siblings do that you don't at least attempt.
You announce everyday when you hear the garage door open that "Daddy's home" and then you great him at the door with a huge smile and a hug and ask him, "Daddy...you home?" Likewise, when you enter the house and he's already there, you announce, "Daddy...I home!!!"
You bring a smile to my face each an every day as you stroll out of bed to the breakfast table announcing that you're awake and greeting me with a big kiss and hug. You tell me each day as you stretch out your arms as far as they can reach, "Jesus loves me this much". Yes He does Millie, and so do we!!
Happy third birthday Amelia Therese! Thank you for being born. You are our favorite Millie in the whole wide world.
