Days Are Long But The Years Are Short

This little lady is keeping us extra busy...she has hit the stage where she can do everything by herself and she thinks everything belongs to her. I remind her daily that she better be glad she's cute...HA!

*Walking around the block in snow boots and dragging her Dora backpack around all the trashcans on the sidewalks (it was trash day).
*Declaring that she could mix up the cookie dough and sneaking in a couple of bites. She definitely takes after her Mommy...nothing much better than eating cookie dough!
*Practicing with her portable DVD player and headphones for our upcoming flight to Missouri. Only 29 more sleeps and we'll be on a plane back to our hometown!
*Insisting she can paint Mommy's fingernails and toenails all by herself. I bought some clear with white glitter polish so she can do it all by herself. The amount of glitter on my nails and skin is ridiculous but I kind of like it. Sparkles are fun, right?!
*Wanting to work on a computer, HER computer. Thank goodness we have some old computers that aren't really in working order so she can get on them and type a letter to Daddy. She usually says that's who she is typing up a letter for...surprised? 
*Beaming as we tried out the coupe car at the grocery store. She was waving, honking and telling everyone 'hi' as we walked past them. She was literally in heaven and wasn't too happy about climbing out when it was time to load up the car and head home.

Amelia is already 20 months old and getting closer and closer to that 2 year old mark that is often given the title "the terrible twos". She is so amazing and she brings our little family so much joy but her independent personality makes some things so difficult.

I'm often say to myself... "The days are long but the years are short". I look back at pictures and wonder how the heck she grew so fast. It seems like we were just bringing her home from the hospital and now she is the big sister.

I'm so thankful for this little lady that keeps us on our toes...we wouldn't want it any other way!
