Amelia woke me up at 6:30 on Wednesday...her nose inches from my nose and her eyes sparkling with excitement. She was so very excited. Her birthday breakfast was a freshly made chocolate doughnut from Rolling Pin Bakery. We light some candles and sang to her before Justin left for work. Phillip and Ella arrived around 8:45 am. More on Phillip in the next post! We made pink lemonade cupcakes and frosting. It is our week for preschool. I decided to visit the cute little greenhouse a couple miles from town with the kids. Rose helped drive and herd kids with me. It was a bit warm outside. The kids enjoyed romping around the beautifully landscaped grounds, catching ladybugs in the greenhouses, and chasing each other around. Amelia ate the frosting off her cupcake and graciously gave me the rest of her cupcake. Then she ate another cupcake, errrr, the frosting!
Ella came with us to a fun birthday lunch at Pizza Hut. Amelia chose Pizza Hut on Monday. She was determined to like it more than McDonalds. Ella ate a plate of carrots, broccoli, ranch dressing, and pasta. Way to go Ella! The girls were so cute chatting about this and that. Phillip kept Justin busy with his frequent visits to the buffet(s) and attempts to squirm into the kitchens.
Amelia and Ella enjoyed the afternoon playing outside in the swimming pool's cold water. Once Justin arrived home she opened her gifts. Amelia got a little Hello Kitty, Barbie Mermaid 2 movie, new booster carseat, and a real camera. She went about ordering us to pose this way and that for the perfect photo. Made me laugh!
We ended the evening at the church attending an informational class on 72 hour kits. Our ward has some amazing gear nerds. The Elder's Quourm President is head of the camping division at Cabela's. Some of the gadgets he showed off were pretty cool. Yep, we need more cool stuff. Phillip was highly intrigued with the table of gear. Happy Birthday to our amazing little girl.
She had her well child visit on Thursday. Amelia weighs 36 pounds and measures 41 inches tall. She grew 2 inches since Aug 2011. Her blood pressure is excellent! She can hop on one leg, walk on her tiptoes, walk on her heels, and can talk your ear off. Her left tube is still in her ear drum (bummer).
