Birthday Girl!

Today, our little Amelia turned three years old! I have no idea where the time has gone and although I feel so extremely cliche even saying that, it really is the truth. Weren't we just in Korea meeting for the first time and now today, with the help of our friends and family, we helped Amelia celebrate another birthday. Amelia continues to be one one of the most nurturing little people I know. She's about as girly as they come, and most mornings she tells me she had happy dreams while she slept. When I ask her to tell me about her dreams she smiles and says "I love to dream about pink puppies and purple kitties!" I can only hope life always remains so Check Spellinghappy and simple for her! Don't let her often quiet demeanor fool you girl has a serious stubborn side and can definitely hold her own! That's ok Amelia, stubborn little girls, turn into strong women, and I wouldn't want you to be anything other than that! :) I am thankful every single day that Amelia is a part of our family and that I have the honor of watching her grow and experience all the world has to offer her. Cheers to you, Princess Amelia, and cheers to another exciting year ahead. Mommy, Daddy, and Graham love you more than you will ever know!

We started the day with pancakes (Amelia's choice), had lunch at McDonald's (Amelia's choice), and ended the day with a Princess themed birthday party (again, Amelia's choice). We have the most amazing group of friends and family and we're so thankful that they were able to help us celebrate today. So, for those of you reading this, thank you for being such positive part of Amelia's life!

Graham greeted Amelia this morning by saying "I give the best birthday hugs, come here!" You know, I have to agree with Graham. He does give the best hugs!

Graham chose a princess fishing rod as a gift for Amelia. She LOVED it and Graham was so genuinely excited for her!

The girls got tiaras and accessories and the boys were decked out in Knight attire

Amelia isn't a big fan of cake, but she does LOVE chocolate chip cookies. We broke tradition and had cookies instead of a cake. What the princess wants, the princess gets! :)

Happy belated birthday, Amelia! I LOVE the party decorations and am planning to steal some of your ideas. Baird is having a knight party in a few weeks. Hope we have as great a day as you did!
