Go Wolves!

A day I have been waiting for two years has finally arrived.

Yes, Amelia can now fit into the 24 month-sized cheerleader suit I have been dying to dress her in! You may recall her first time to wear a Wolfpack cheerleader suit when she was 2 weeks old.
I had wanted a tiny cheerleader suit for her first basketball season and my Aunt Rhonda was going to make one for me but couldn't find a pattern small enough. She settled for a Build-A-Bear cheerleader, added Co-Lin to the suit and gave it to me at my baby shower. That day at 2 weeks old for that photo was the one and only time she fit into that outfit. The Build-A-Bear wears it now and he sits on her bookshelf in her room. Since then, I've been looking everywhere for a suit to fit her and 24 months is the smallest I've found. And now she is finally big enough to wear it!

We had so much fun at the game last week. She loved seeing the wolf mascot (but not up close) and even ran on the field to be a part of the spirit line with her little friends before the players ran out. Sadly, I have no photo of it because I never dreamed she would have participated since she had been so whiney and clingy earlier when I tried to get her to do it.

Looking at these pics, I couldn't help but be nostalgic for her very first time to meet the wolf mascots.

 Here she is in my tummy at 8 months pregnant.

And here she was last year at this time posing with my co-workers' kids at the tailgate party.

And last year during basketball season

She is growing up to be quite a fan of the Wolfpack! She even yells "Go wolves!" and can howl like a wolf when we ask how the wolf goes. I'm looking forward to even more cheering when basketball season starts for Daddy. We love being a Co-Lin family!

Oh how time flies, Angela! This is so sweet. The Build-A-Bear story is hilarious. So funny. And so glad Amelia is finally a "real" cheerleader- precious!
