My little sweat machine

Dear Amelia -
Friday night we went over to Amy and Ross' house because the Ciebiera's were in town! It was HOT. Really hot. You obviously have your Daddy's sweat glands...you were sweatin' like crazy! 

You and Gracie played on the sport court and had fun scaring people (you thought it was hilarious)

And you got REALLY REALLY excited when baby Xav joined the party! The second their car door opened, you said "MOMMY THE BABY IS HERE!" 

That Xavier is such a lover. So are his parents and aunty Cole. I'm so glad their joined us!

Saturday we went out on the boat and ended at Sunsets for a little lunch. Fun day!

We started potty training Sunday/Monday. You have been doing really well at home but Cathy tells me that you aren't going potty at her house anywhere besides your diaper. Hmmm...

Cute things you say incorrectly

Dear Amelia -
Here are some of the things you say incorrectly, its adorable:
Noogers = Boogers
Piper = Diaper
Morman = Norman
Cavin = Cabin
Wimming = Swimming
Nogurt = Yogurt
*uck = Truck
Jaxy = Jackson
Amma = Glamma
2, 4, 8 = 1, 2, 3
and my favorite
I LOO-U = I love you

You have been talking like crazy lately...forming major sentences and saying things I didn't even know you knew. Monday - you pointed to the sky and asked "Where's the moon?"

First Twins Game and the Raspberry parade 2011

Dear Amelia -
Daddy and I took you to the Twins game on Saturday. My work gave me 4 tickets for the Legends Club (not too shabby for your first game.) Burt Blyleven's jersey number was retired so it was a good game to go to! 

 We had your face painted and had some cracker jacks! You were such a good girl. We stayed until the top of the 7th. It was H-O-T!

Speaking of hot...we went to the Hopkins Raspberry Parade on Sunday. HOLY COW it was BOILING hot! We found out you have your Daddy's sweat glands...your whole face was sweaty.
You are the sweetest baby girl in the whole wide world. I love you more than anything.

Cabin 2011

Dear Amelia - 
We had another successful Grade weekend up at the cabin! We had fun...too much fun. As a matter of fact - I won the fun contest 2 days in a row. I even "sang" Baby Got Back Karaoke style at the bar across the lake. 

On another note - you put Icy Hot all over your face last night. I think I scared you more than anything...

Jaxy and Yaya's 4th of July weekend together!

Dear Amelia -
Pam and Jackson came in town on Wednesday! We had so much fun with them this weekend! The weekend started out with a boat ride on Friday night! There was a nasty storm moving in so we went back to the house where Jackson aka Jackie wanted to put on your jammies...

Then you guys crawled in bed to watch the Backyardagains before bedtime. 

PARENT BREAK: Pam, Jon, Daddy and I went to the Twins game on Saturday night. We had awesome seats in the Legends Club and went to Uptown afterwards! 
 Sunday night you and Jaxy had a sleepover at our house. 
You ate dinner together
 Checked out the fridge together
 Held hands together

Jackson played with Norman

We read some books

And then you went to sleep in the same room. We could hear you talking to each other thru the monitor. Jackson would say "Yaya. Lay down" and you would answer him by saying "Jaxy. Quiet." Pretty hilarious.

In the morning, we played outside for a little bit
 Until it was time to go out on the boat!

Such a cool chick!

Minnetonka's Summerfest

Dear Amelia -
Last weekend, the city of Minnetonka had their annual Summerfest. It was so much fun! They had a crazy hair station, face painting, music, tractor rides and a petting zoo. 

It was a blast! Your hair looked adorable!!! We saw a bunch of people I know...they all said "she is a mini Courtney"
