We were so excited to finally get to bring her to church. Here she is posing with the girls in our Sunday School class. We teach the college students. They all just love her!
Finally getting to meet one of her many future suitors, Trent. His mom is my friend Courtney. She made him kiss my belly all the time when I was pregnant. She wants Amelia to be her daughter-in-law one day. Isn't Trent a cutie? The strings hanging down are supposed to be tied into a bow. I didn't realize they came untied. She was so good at church. She slept the whole time. I went to Katie's to borrow her scanner for a birthday project for my dad. This is what she was doing with my baby while I was working. Love it!
Here she is hanging around the house on Christmas Eve. She wasn't in a great mood for photos. I was kind of bummed on this day too because it was my first year to miss Christmas at my grandparents' house. I hated to miss seeing my family, but there are so many of us in such close quarters, plus lots of children, and I couldn't risk her getting sick since she didn't have her shots yet. Hopefully she'll get to meet my grandparents soon.
Still sleepy on Christmas morning. Her Christmas pjs say "Mommy's little JOY." She absolutely is!
Look how excited she was to see what Santa brought. Katie took this one with her hanging out with Uncle Chris.
Here she is getting to see Nana for the first time since she was born. She thought Aunt Lynne was hilarious. She smiled at her like crazy. She must've thought Aunt Lynne was copying her outfit!
So that's a summary of our Christmas in photos. We are looking forward to the future when we can experience the excitement of Christmas through our sweet little girl!

Thought about using this one for the card, but I went with the one with eyes open.
We had to go to the funeral home last week when my great aunt passed away and I took a few photos in our pretty dress. The chair in the nursery is making a good backdrop until she learns to sit up.
Almost captured that smile! Gotta be a little quicker.
Everything was fine until we put on the sweater.
She got to meet her great-great aunts and uncle.
Ok, I think that sums up our last couple of weeks! It is going to be sad when I have to go back to work and won't have as much time to take photos every day and share them with you all. I will do my best to keep up with our growing girl. More Christmas photos to come, I'm sure. Uncle Chris and Aunt Kathryn, we're ready to see you soon! Amelia misses you!

Taken today on her 6 week birthday. She refused to give me a smile. I think she was depressed because her Papa (my dad) had just left. At least that's what he would have everyone believe.
I'm in the process of getting all our birth announcements and Christmas cards in the mail. I don't want to spoil the surprise by posting the photos, but I will share them soon. In the meantime, here is one from our newborn photo session that we aren't using.Ok, that should tide you over for a while, Uncle Chris! Ha Ha. Christmas photos coming soon!

Laid out in her Great Grandpa Fred's lap. She slept all day long on her first Thanksgiving!
Just hanging around the house in a cute outfit from Aunt Katie
First of many more Christmas pics to come!
Watching Mommy decorate the tree is exhausting!
We have enjoyed having Cliff home for the last several days. Now it is back to just Mommy and Amelia at home during the day. I had really gotten used to having an extra set of hands!
