Life is busy, as usual. Amelia is growing like a weed. She has started laughing every once in a while. It is so cute when she does. She babbles like crazy and it always sounds like she is saying "I good" but its really more just like "ahhh gggggg." She does the "g" sound the most. At 4 and 1/2 months, it just amazes me at what she can already do. She is also almost sitting on her own. Oh, and we started trying some baby foods this week. So far just pears (which she LOVES) and sweet potatoes (which she thinks are just "ok") I really enjoy letting her try new things. She wants to feed herself already so she has to hold my hand that has the spoon in it the whole time. So cute!

Work is pretty much the same. I would LOVE to not have to work so much and spend more time with my baby but that's just not something we can afford right now. I hope to get my photography business off the ground soon then I will be home a lot more. Someday....just waiting for God's timing.

I love being a mom. My world is completely different and I see life in a totally different way. I never knew I could love another person as much I love this kid. It's like every part of me woke up just to love her and she makes me incredibly happy. I know all you moms out there know exactly what I mean. It's awesome!

Here's a picture I took tonight on our web cam. Just me and Mia, hanging out:

She was smiling cause she could see herself on the screen. She LOVES to look at herself. It's so funny because she could be screaming and if I hold her up in front of the mirror, she will stop immediately and smile at her reflection. Can you say conceited...haha, just kidding. Seriously though, she's the coolest kid ever.
