Dear Amelia -
2 years ago you were just hours old. Now you are over 17,520 hours. Somedays it feels like you've been around for ever and other times I can't believe that you are already two. When people say time flies, they aren't kidding....get it? KIDding. HA!

Your last day of being 1 was a busy day. You were growing right before my eyes. Putting on make up and being your sassy self.

We had a lot of errands to run and some last minute shopping to do before your party!
Here's what the 2 year old Amelia looks like.
We love you to pieces pretty girl!

More about your party and pictures to come!!

Dear Amelia -
Your last weekend of being 1 was fun. Friday, you stayed home with Daddy while I went over to Kelly's for a girls night.

Saturday we ran some errands then got ready for Awesome Uncle Aldo's football game in St Paul. You and Owen enjoyed walking around instead of watching the game.
We had a sleepover at Glamma and Cookie's Saturday night.
Glamma got you your first "comfy cozie". We decided to be funny and put a sweat band on you. You hated it.
In the afternoon, you took a 3.5 hour nap while I went to celebrate Kellee's birthday!

You started picking up on the fact that I call Daddy "Hunny" all the time. I must whine a lot when I say it...

Dear Amelia -
It was one of the last nice weekends in Minnesota. We got out to enjoy the weather while we could!
Friday after work/daycare, we took a little walk to the park.
The slide was a little scary! This picture makes me lol.
Saturday morning at 830 I got a call from Glamma wondering when you were coming over. I dropped you off around 930 and I went home to start organizing.

Daddy got home around 230 and we ran some errands before our date night.

We saw the movie Jackass 3D (we even wore 3D glasses.) It was hilarious. Your daddy makes everything even funnier with his laugh. After the movie, we went to dinner then back home.

Sunday, we went to Target and picked out your adorable Halloween costume along with a $5 costume for Norman. We picked you up at 10am and went to a little pumpkin patch by our house.
At first, you were a little scared of the pumpkins but then you warmed up to them. You kept calling it an "APPLE"
You were very proud of your Apple.

Our day was finished with a VIKINGS WIN! YIPPIE!

We love GLEE

Dear Amelia -
With your birthday being 2 weeks away, we have to get the house organized for your birthday party. Its going to be much smaller than your 1st birthday but just as fun! You are going over to Glamma and Cookie in the morning for the day and a sleepover. Daddy and I are going to see a movie.

Sunday, we are going to go to a pumpkin patch and watch football!

Mommy's favorite show is becoming your favorite show. You love to sing and dance, sometimes even copying their dance moves.

Dear Amelia -
The Vikings play the Jets tonight. Its the first game that Randy Moss will play back in a Vikings jersey! I can't wait for the game.
We had a fun weekend. While I went out with the girls downtown (pictures to come,) you went with Daddy to Kiki's for dinner. You had a sleepover. You were home bright and early (830am.) Daddy was so nice and let me take 2 naps because I didn't get much sleep the night before. He's the best.

Almost game time!

Because we belonggg together!

Dear Amelia -
Every morning on our way to work. We listen to Kelly Clarkson and dance! Here's proof:

If I do not promptly dance, you say "DANCE MOMMY!"

This weekend, I'm celebrating collectively with my girlfriends for our 30th birthdays! You are going to hang with Daddy while I stay in a hotel downtown! Fun

Happy Camper!

Dear Amelia -
Your first camping trip was a SUCCESS! You went down with Glamma and Cookie Friday. We met you for tailgating Saturday! We met Ben's girlfriend for the first time. You loved her. Her name is Angela but you called her "Ala" and said her name any chance you could get!
Awesome Uncle Aldo has grown a mustache. It looks disgusting. :) Hopefully he'll shave it soon!

Here are some more pictures from camping.
This one is my new fav....

Today is Norman's 5th birthday! Happy birthday Nerm!

Also, on another exciting note...Randy Moss is back with the Vikings. Its all people have been talking about all day! Verrrry exciting to have him back!

I love NY

Dear Amelia -
My trip to NYC went a little like this...
Our flight was delayed 3 hours so we were late for the reading. A “reading” is when the actors act and sing the play without moving much. They just stand and read from a book that has their script in it. Whoopi wasn’t there but Sam from Lost was. He was SO nice and I got my picture taken with him. Unfortunately, that was my only famous encounter.

After the reading was over, I walked to the restaurant where I had made reservations for in a private room. Hurley’s is an Irish bar where all of the people who work there are from Ireland. Great food but even better d├ęcor.

After dinner, I went to check into my hotel room at the Westin (in Times Square.) I walked in and realized that I had stayed there before. I’ve only been to NYC once before that so that was kind of crazy. It wasn’t a Westin last time I was there tho. After I checked in, I decided to go find you an "I (heart) NY" tshirt for you. I didn’t have to go far...found one right away. Then back to the room to go nini’s.

It was such a fun trip! I want to go back!


PS - Wednesday I'll post the super cute pictures from camping this weekend.
