Mother's DayI

We enjoyed a quiet low key Mother's Day. Amelia woke up before 6am (happy day). So I was up and at em pretty early. :) Soon after she woke up I notice she had a bit of a fever. She is cutting her 13th tooth right now... I am pretty sure. We were going to go out for pizza but Deric ended up ordering and bringing it back home. After Amelia took a morning nap she seemed to feel a bit better but still had a low grade fever. We played outside and took some photos but that is about it. I did get to relax in the sun for a bit while Deric played with Amelia.

 I couldn't be more proud to be Amelia's mom. I have also dreamed of what my family would be like when I got married and I am truly living it. I am blessed beyond measures to have Deric as my husband. He is truly my best friend and soul mate. Having Amelia as our first born made our future that much better. She is our shinning light.
Amelia is a good combo of being a momma's / daddy's girl. It is nice she really doesn't prefer one of us over the other. I will say she falls to sleep on Deric almost every night ;). But she seem to lay down on her own better when I take her to bed.

She has been really REALLY lovey these past few weeks. She cracks us up. Always leaning over to give us "sugars" or hugs out of the blue.... melts our hearts.  You can see in this photo she is good at kisses! She nearly knocks me over, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

After our fun in the sun we all took naps! It was so nice. Amelia and I snuggled up on the couch while Deric watched golf and it puts us to sleep every time! ;) After we woke up I got to skype with my mom. She is in Florida right now visiting her parent and my Aunt Pat  (lives in SD) and her family is there too. So I got to see them all. It was nice that I got to "see" them all. It is was so sweet to see my grandma's face light up when she saw Amelia. I really need to get Amelia and I back to see them soon.
