A Lovely Weekend

Today was Amelia's first day attending Sunday School. The Catholic church that we have been going to is only a block away from my home, but they don't offer Sunday school for kids her age so I decided I would start taking her to the church I grew up going to. She was very excited last night and picked out a dress to wear all on her own. I cut her bangs and put her hair in curlers. For some reason I couldn't sleep last night so when my alarm went off at 5am this morning, after only having two hours of sleep, it took all I had to get out of bed. Amelia was tired, but very anxious about going. Mark, Amelia and I got ready and headed out; we were meeting my sister and her fiance there. I of course snapped a few photos of Amelia before we left home to document this occasion.

Don't believe all you see in these pictures... she herself was a bit cranky this morning. Mark was standing behind me doing something silly with my hair to get these smiles. This was the first picture I took.

After mass we went into her classroom and I dropped her off. She ran right over and pulled out a chair, sat down and was ready for school. I love her curiosity for learning.

Last night Amelia and I had a little date. I made us each a cup of hot chocolate and topped it with some whipped cream; Amelia's was covered in pink sprinkles. Little moments like this warm my heart. She was acting silly and giggling with me, talking non-stop about who knows what. I could end every day like that.

I love the straw she is using. I got a whole container of them from Target and I think they are just adorable!

Tonight I was able to sneak away from the house for a few hours alone. I realized that this was the first time in weeks where I've been more than one room away from Amelia. Even when she was in Sunday school this morning I was just outside the door. I went shopping, hoping to get a new pair of shoes, but nothing caught my eye. The only purchases I made were of course for Amelia. It was a great day though! We are having family photos next weekend and I'm at a loss for what to wear. I am gonna have to spend the next couple of days rummaging through our closets and drawers. Well, I am sleepy and have an early morning ahead of me tomorrow. Good Night!
