First steps on the First Birthday1

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.

    I want ALL of these.

    She is the princess, to be sure.

    The words “we have a girl” will be permantly embedded in my mind

    Thank you for such beautiful GRANDchildren

    Oh you do have beautiful children. She is definitely a princess and your mom loves her grandbabies so much and I can certainly see why. My prayer is that our daughter will bless us very very soon with a little one. Happy New Year.

    It’s been a year then since I began reading your blog. I remember reading on someone else’s blog about Amelie’s birth, and I followed the link to check out this Christmas Eve baby.

    Happy birthday, Amelie!

    Can you believe a whole year has gone by? She is a real beauty, and Aiden is a handsome young man.
    Blessings to you all as you begin another year of serving Him.
