I’m sitting here trying to think of something fun or quirky to write about Amelia and the fact that she seems to be growing up at lightening speed, but I’m at a loss. I just can’t believe that it’s been six years since we had her. Having Amelia (as with having all my children) was such a huge turning point in my life. I know that I’ve talked about it before, but the circumstances surrounding Amelia and her birth seemed to be a bit of a soul saver for me. I felt, and still feel, as though God used all of that to speak to my hurting heart. I look back on her infancy with fondness and part of me misses those precious months of blessing and renewal. I also miss my quirky little toddler in all of her spunk and sparkles. But it’s also fun to see the girl she’s turning into. I love that she goes to the beat of her own drum, not caring about what other people are doing or wearing. She’s a superb friend and is (almost) always willing to lend a helping hand. Her heart seems to be constantly exploding with love for everyone around her.
I’m constantly astounded over how quickly Amelia is growing up and how big she’s gotten (seriously, she’s wearing size 8!). Although the early years are hard and tiring, I feel so lucky to have had a little girl like Amelia. She’s truly a special spark in our household. Our family is made better with her in our lives. So here’s to Amelia Kate!
Happy Birthday Ammie!
