Weary but enjoying some giggles and walking

Is it really only Wednesday? Heavens to Betsy.

I've fallen asleep on the couch the last two nights, too exhausted to write. Luckily, a couple of people made two brief videos of Amelia recently that are really cute, so I decided to share them with you today.

First, my dad recorded me tickling her on the floor in the den. Amelia LOVES to be tickled ... she says, "Ticka-ticka-ticka-ticka-ticka" all the time. I love it!

Second, one of Amelia's teachers emailed me a video of her walking at school yesterday.You know, I haven't been able to get any pictures or video of her walking since she first did it last month, because she's so secretive about it. Even one of her daily report sheets from school last week said, "Amelia loves to walk when no one's looking!"

But Monday night, after supper Nathaniel was helping her practice walking in the den, when all of a sudden she just took off. She walked from the den into the kitchen, down the hallway, through the playroom, into the other side of the kitchen and back around. She must have taken 50 steps or more! We were all jumping around and clapping, hooting and hollering for her.

(Have I mentioned that when she does anything cute or new, we all clap and go crazy over her? If we don't, she pauses and looks around, craning her neck in all directions to see what else people could possibly be doing that's so important as to rank above proclaiming our adoration for her.) (That must be how narcissists are made.)

Anyway, here's the little video her teacher sent me at work yesterday:

It's so exciting to see her coming into her own ...Watch out, world.
