Amelia gets extraordinarily excited at seeing the moon and stars; but especially the moon. She will squeal with delight every time she sees it, and looks for it in the daytime too (which she often finds it hanging in the sky this time of year). Every time she will yell, "MOON, Mommy! Da MOON!!" and giggle and laugh.
Every time she does this, she reminds me of Rafe, who loves the moon and the stars and the sky. I can so see the two of them outside at night someday looking up at the sky with a telescope and chatting about the moon and stars. He was the first one to show her the stars. When Rafe came home the first time after she was born, he took her around the back yard and went to everything he saw and pointed it out to her and let her touch it. Trees, leaves, grass, you name it, they did it. I can hardly wait until he is home with us again full time.
