It is absolutely gorgeous outside today. It is 80 degrees with sunshine and a little breeze. I am not an outdoor-sey kind of person, but today, I want to be outside. The grass is greening up...Trees are beginning to bloom. All of nature seems to be coming alive after a long winter's nap. I got out yesterday and pruned all of the dead foliage off of the Oleander, Hydrangeas, Roses, and Crepe Myrtles. I am excited to watch them "spring" to new life.
Spring is a time of renewal, which is why I guess, it is very fitting that my sweet, precious, little Amelia Claire is one year old today. She was born on the first day of spring. Her birthday will always be after a long cold winter.
I remember this day last year. I remember the first time she filled my arms. It was such a beautiful fulfilling feeling after a long cold winter. Little Miss Amelia is one of the sweetest babies. She is so even tempered. She rarely cries and is quick to give a kiss or hug. She has the cutest, toothie little smile. She loves to eat and has not yet met a food the didn't like. The little stinker can crawl faster than most people can run. She is pulling up and cruising around but just will not turn loose yet. I think it is more of a confidence thing at this point. I'm not rushing her because I know that walking will eventually turn into running. I think you know where I'm going with this. This sweet little girl is just a blessing. I have loved every single minute with her this last year and look forward to a lifetime more.
I'll leave you with a few pictures of sweet Amelia's first year.
Happy Birthday Amelia Claire!
