I was so concerned about potentially boring my few readers that I neglected writing about Amelia as often as I wanted to and should have. Now I'm starting to forget so much about her first several months. I know we had rough nights (and some rough days), but not wanting to be a downer, I rarely posted details. How lame. Life is full of ups and downs - how can anyone read a blog that's all "ups" and no "downs" with any sense of reality at all? Especially with a newborn the wonderful moments outweigh the tiring, emotionally exhausting ones, but I think they're all worth documenting.
Often we drive past the gas station where, on the way home from Bible class one night, we had to park there so we could take turns soothing an inconsolable baby. My parents were in town that night and my mom spent a lot of time with me trying to figure out what was wrong with her...I think Amelia was maybe a month old. Finally my mom, being the rockstar superhero that she is, soothed Amelia with a combination of song and belly rubbing. I know now that it was painful gas causing my baby to get so upset.
So, I'm here now. I have to get back on the proverbial horse and write about my sweet baby. It makes me so happy to go back and read the few posts I did manage to write when we first brought her home and the months that followed.
Here are some things about my 10 1/2 month old baby girl:
