Thankgiving!

Dear Amelia -
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday.

If you could talk, you would say you are thankful for the following:
Your Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, Elmo, Backyardgains ('gins as you call them,) your baby and blankie and eggos. Oh and don't forget your Daddy, Mommy and Norman.
Our plans for tomorrow are to go over to Glamma and Cookie's for Colehour Thanksgiving. Should be a fun time!

Love,
Mom

JACKSON IS 2!

Dear Amelia -
Sorry for being a bad blogger. I've included a video to make up for it!

This weekend, we got our first snow fall. It was a lot of snow over a short period of time but HEY, we live in Minnesota so we should be use to it. Plus, now I can listen to Christmas music...without the snow, it was just weird.

I took you outside and you hated it...
On the way to daycare/work, I could hear you singing in the backseat. I finally figured out you were singing the ABC's. My favorite part is when you try to sing "LMNOP" and your mouth goes crazy. I think its your favorite part to sing!

Today our Jaxy turns 2!!!! Glamma gets to go visit him today, we are jealous.

Love,
Mom

My sleep number is 35

Dear Amelia -
After Kelly Clarkson ditched me at the State Fair last year, I wasn't sure she'd ever make it up to me. WELL SHE DID! A FREE show at the MOA! Kellee and I headed down to watch her. She still rocks :)
While I was at Kelly Clarkson, you were busy climbing out of your pack n play at Glamma and Cookies and opening the door. Fun! Its beginning!

Glamma and Cookie gave us the Select Comfort - Sleep Number bed that was in the guest bed room at their house. Its like HEAVEN! Daddy and I use to sleep on a full size bed because we couldn't get a queen down the stairs but since the mattress is air in a Sleep Number bed, we have a QUEEN! My sleep number is 35, Daddy's is 70. Perfect!
You and Daddy trying out the new bed.

Love,
Mom

Bye bye "sassy"

Dear Amelia -
For your 2nd birthday, we decided we needed to take your paci away. I don't want you to be one of those kids at Target that are 4 with a pacifier in your mouth....no way, not my kid.

Your last night with your "sassy"

It ended up being a genius move on our part taking it away on the same day as your birthday. You were so tired that you went right to sleep. You didn't ask for it at all. Sunday you asked for it but we ignored you. You have been paci free for a few days now and I think it might be a success!! Of course everyone has some advice to give about taking it away but we didn't need any of that!

Love,
Mom

Par-tay

Dear Amelia -
You woke up on your 2nd birthday to some heart shaped pancakes made by Daddy.
Your party started at noon. We had 15 people and it was very fun.
We had this cupcake cake made at Target...cute huh?
and yummy...
After sloppy joes, cake and presents...it was time to play!
You loved your big day!

Love,
Mom
