World Famous Diva Extraordinaire Amelie Accompanied by Mr. Wonderful

You may not know this, but Mr. Wonderful graduated from college with a degree in piano performance-and he is AMAZING (and I'm not just saying that because I'm his wife--he REALLY is amazing).

I have seen him perform in many venues while playing very difficult pieces but my favorite performances by far include our darling daughter Amelie. They were playing in Amelie's room and I just happened to sneak by and Amelie was singing her favorite songs accompanied by Daddy on her plinky little PINK piano. I HAD to tape it for posterity. I am blessed beyond belief to have a husband who is so talented, loving and FUN!

p.s. ignore the surprise at the end of the last video--my camera battery died so I couldn't re-tape it...she is "usually" a little'll see.

Should I Be Worried?


...precious toddler...

LOVES these guys....Mr. Wonderful made the mistake of changing the channel during this show and she yelled--

PUT THE REMOTE BACK DADDY!!! I want to see the Gladiators climb the hill!!

Hmm...and Yikes!

That's My Boyfriend!

Amelie says, "That's my boyfriend!" in reference to this cartoon:

I think she's thinking of someone else...

What do you think?

...they are going to take THIS and turn it into THAT...

Let's all say a prayer to that end. Amen!

She's Very Advanced You Know....

Maeve very clearly said, "Hello." today...

I'm totally serious about this, she is a super genius baby! Well, maybe not totally serious but she DID say hello!

Amelie says, "I'm puttin' pasta up my nose!"

Amelie has a huge collection of play doh now that she has been going potty like a big girl all day. Mr. Wonderful and Amels have been making play doh creatures...
