Amelia Bedelia

Going anywhere with Amelia is like walking with a little celebrity. Today we were in the commissary and walked by an older couple sitting together smiling at her. The man called out, "Hey! There goes Shirley Temple!" People stop us to tell me how beautiful she is and to talk to her all the time. They tell me she looks like a little china doll with her blue eyes and chubby little rosy cheeks. Of course, as her mom, I absolutely think she's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I pray that I raise her to be more beautiful on the inside than she is on the outside, and to see that inner beauty is the best beauty of all.

She is adorable! There is no doubt you and Rafe will raise a strong beautiful woman. You are both such wonderful people and she will surely follow the same path.

Thanks Kandy! I think it's the ducks that a certain someone (wink wink nudge nudge) gave her when she was little. Ducks make a difference. :)
