I'm stealing a page from my friend Martha's book; every week of her daughter Nora's life, she's taken a picture of Nora with a sign that says "I am _weeks old today!" It's been really fun to see her progress each week (she posts the pictures on her blog). I don't know that I can be diligent enough to do one each week, but I thought it would be fun to do this for Andrew for each month. Here's the first picture!We've had meals brought to us every other night for the last 10 days from our church family, which has been awesome! Even though I love to cook, it's been nice to not have to think about what's for dinner. People (especially at church) have also given us lots of gifts for Andrew, and a lot of those people have given gifts to Amelia too, so she's not left out. She is eating this up, of course!
One of my friends from Ladies' class had a toy kitchen that belonged to her daughter (who's now in high school). Cindy had told me a while back that she'd love to pass this on to Amelia, so Amelia played with it at Cindy's house the other day and then it came home with us. It has been really funny watching Amelia play in her kitchen! She puts on her little apron and chef hat and looks so cute (see picture below)! The funniest part of all of it, however, is the cash register. It has a little scanner that makes noise when you touch it to something, so as you can imagine, we've "bought" everything in the house with Amelia's cash register. Here's the best part: after you "buy" something, she says, "Thank you for shopping with us!" Ha! One too many trips to Kroger, I guess!
