Thought I'd mark my 50th post with some thoughts and pictures of my beautiful, nearly 2 1/2 year-old little Amy.

These days she loves:

:: dresses
:: pink
:: winnie-the-pooh
:: listening to stories (the non-book, all-about-our-family, told over and over kind)
:: fabric
:: birthdays
:: when Daddy comes home from work
:: dressing up
:: taking care of her dolls and animals

These days she hates:

:: admitting that she's tired
:: slowing down
:: shoe shopping
:: the vacuum
:: cheeseburgers (pronounced "chub-a-googers")
:: going down the slide

She imagines, pretends, asks, describes, wonders, and can jump up and down really well.

Sometimes to me she looks so tiny; other times she looks ready for kindergarten.

She has more flair and drama and exuberance than I have, yet she is also quiet, focused, and contemplative.

She's endlessly patient in the car, in the store, in restaurants. She's maddeningly impatient when I'm in the bathroom, when I'm cooking, or when she wants us to come play with her.

She has so much energy that I am exhausted by the end of the day.

She amazes and delights me all the time, and reminds me that I'm the luckiest Mommy in the world.


  1. I love that sweet girl!

    Happy 50th post! :)

  2. Indeed you are the luckiest! She is perfect
