I know as a parent that it is only "natural" to be amazed and impressed by everything your child does/can do/learns to do:
"Oh honey, what a GREAT job opening the door! Woot!"
"You are the best cheerio eater in the world!!"
"You are the most amazing/beautiful/talented (etc) child in the Universe!"
You know what I mean...
But honestly, truly and deeply from the bottom of my little heart I believe that my older girl is gifted athletically. She has a poise, balance and fearlessness that must have been genetically inherited from somewhere a bit farther back on the DNA chain as her father and I are strictly musical and artsy.
Her favorite sport is kickball/soccer/football...
Well, I'm not exactly sure what her favorite sport is b/c she uses those three terms interchangeably--however, I am sure she does a wicked header
(Mommy, bounce the ball so I can hit it with my head)
I also *love* the juxtaposition of her playing all sports in a dress.
Who says a girly girl can't be sport too?

The farm we went to as a family yesterday was so fun--they had a lot to do: hay rides during which you can pick whatever is in season (corn and nectarines right now--since we had never eaten nectarines and weren't sure what they were exactly we went for corn and fyi--nectarines are related to the peach). Amelie LOVED the hayride throughout the farm--we saw lots of horses and other assorted animals--it was a perfect day for it!

You are starting to eat a variety of foods and corn on the cob is your favorite!
You also took a few steps this past weekend and Amelie exclaimed, "Maeve, you are a BIG girl!"
We love you little one!
Amelie was thrilled that Granny and Pop Pop of the North wanted to have a water balloon fight! Although, I'm pretty sure my parents got more wet than Amelie did (those two are like a couple of teenagers) they all had a good time though! Amelie's favorite part was throwing the balloon before they were tied. Thanks G and P for a fun time!
