The Princess is One!

It seems impossible that a year has passed with our beautiful Amélie Joëlene.  Born Christmas Eve 2007 and celebrated this Christmas Eve with a brunch…the theme?  Pink Christmas.  The dress?  Target.  (Pronounced Tar-jay!)  It was beyond wonderful to spend the morning with friends and family following around a be-sparkled little angel who kissed her baby doll gifts as if she truly loved them and who would not, would not stick her fingers in the cake.  Ever the princess.  The three of us are smitten and find numerous occasions a day to maul her!  Aidan has never had a moment of jealousy but instead still squeals with delight upon entering the same room as his sister.  It’s all we can do not to squeal too!
These aren’t the best photos – I was trying not to be “that mom with the camera” and instead enjoy the morning.  Alas I handed the camera around and got back alot of blurry photos.  Thankfully Gramma was being “that Gramma with the camera” and hers are gorgeous.  I hope to get them from her this week.
