Here we are working on a messy father's day gift for my dad. Babies and paint are not the best mix, but we had fun and I'm pretty sure Papa loved his t-shirt. It took me, Aunt Mare and Cliff to get it done.Signing Papaw Bob's card with a handprint
I'm a little OCD about my baby getting dirty. (I know, I know) So this pretty much drove me crazy until we got her cleaned up 5 minutes later. Luckily it came off all of us pretty easily and didn't ruin Daddy's new Southern Miss College World Series shirt!
She finally has enough hair for a tiny shampoo mohawk! If she were a boy, she would definitely have a faux-hawk every day instead of her giant bows.
She was having so much fun while her Daddy and I were bathing her last night, and I couldn't resist running for the camera to get these cute grins.
Can you believe she is cruising into 8 months next week? She is at such a fun age right now. Speaking of cruising, in 5 more days my baby daddy and I will be on our way to Mexico! Grammy and Papa can't wait to babysit, and I'm getting over my sadness over leaving my girl and actually getting excited about our trip. Sun, fun, eating and sleeping- those are my vacation goals. I'll be back with photos from our trip in a couple of weeks and an update on our 8 month old girl. No telling how long it will take me to get her detoxed from all that grandparent spoiling!

First we have Amelia chatting it up while playing with the newspaper and my beloved 20% off STAGE coupons. This occupied her for a good 30 minutes while I ordered a new cell phone online after she destroyed mine. I'm still kinda ticked at her about that but it was my fault for letting her chew on it.
Here she is enjoying a treat I picked up for her at the dollar store. The girl isn't hard to please when it comes to toys these days! You can totally tell what she's thinking when the balloon gets away from her. She wants to crawl over to get it but she's scared of falling on her face.
And here she is having a ball in our hand-me-down jumparoo. Of all the toys and equipment we've purchased and people have bought for us as gifts, she really hasn't cared for much of it. But she has caught on to how much fun the jumparoo brings and it is hilarious to watch her in it. She's a little spastic like her mama, ha.

Helping with the laundry
Hanging out with her buddy, Tucker at Ella's birthday party. Amelia was such a bully. Here she is tugging on poor Tuck's ear. He didn't really seem to mind. These two were born 5 days apart.
While Cliff was at basketball camp, Amelia enjoyed spending time with her aunts, Katie and Mare. Aunt Katie of course took a few pics. Here are a couple of our big girl who thinks it's ok to walk without learning to crawl first.
Getting her very first pedicure at the salon with Aunt Katie. Amelia relaxed and read her book while cousin Megan painted her toenails.
Amelia dropped in on Memaw and Papaw the other day, and they were just tickled to death to see her. She is always napping when they come to visit, so they just ate her up while she was laughing and playing.

The flyover:The 155th:My parents, Amelia and I totally missed the ceremony because of a stupid traffic jam on Hwy 49 and on the base. I got the first two pics from my sister. At least we got to see Jeremy when it was over. He was glad to see Amelia and she was happy to see him too!
Especially when she realized he had cool stuff to play with on his uniform. Here she is chewing on his canteen. Jeremy called it another word, but I forgot what it was. It's the thing they wear on their backs that holds their drinking water. Whatever it's called, Amelia loved it.
Our family, minus my brother Josh, who was working. Daddy's in the back with his gimpy arm. He had shoulder surgery a few weeks ago.
Three-fourths of the Davis siblings and Amelia, the star of the family.
Back at my parents' house the whole fam got together for supper, but I refused to pose for any group photos because my allergies were going crazy from the random cat that lives in their yard, so my nose was all red and my face was swollen. Here's Amelia finding something else to chew on, one of her favorites, a cell phone! She destroyed mine last week and I had to get a new one. Her slobber is deadly to electronics.
Mare trying on Jeremy's cool gear:
Cliff, we might have a volley-baller on our hands! She had fun playing with Aunt Mare and my dad with the ball in the yard.
Please remember Jeremy and all the soldiers and their families in your prayers during this time. Let's not forget the sacrifice all branches of the military have made for us and continue to make for us everyday.

Here we are in August of 2001 before we began dating. We were on the student newspaper staff at Co-Lin, and this photo was taken at the club fair at the beginning of the semester. We became friends our freshman year, and started dating in the fall of our sophomore year, not long after this pic. What babies we were, just 19 years old!
Very early in our relationship. This was the first of many, many sporting events that we would attend together.
I worked for a photographer while attending Co-Lin, and Cliff came by to take me to lunch one day. Johnny, my boss, asked us to pose for a quick pic to test out his Christmas backdrop. So cheesy, but I love this memory.
Memphis Grizzlies game, 2002. Look at all that hair Cliff had!
