A letter to Amelia

Dear Amelia,

Thank you for being such an awesome baby. You put up with a lot. We take you everywhere. We put you in the car seat and take you out and put you back in and take you out. We stretch you 4 or even 5 hours between feedings. And the most you do is cry a little before you become quickly distracted by motion or your toys.

We can't believe you don't care if you are in a poopy diaper. We sometimes forget to take you out of your clothes when you are hot and then you get all sweaty. And you never seem to be to bothered about it. We can't believe you are so mellow and just hang out and don't mind doing whatever we are doing and never ever complain or cry. Thank you for being so sweet, kind, and easy-going. You make our lives so much easier! We would put up with way more angst from you, but yet you give us very little.

Thank you also for sleeping through the night since you were 7 weeks old. Not once have we had to rush in or get up for you. Mommy especially thanks you for that as she is dealing with insomnia, PPD, and work all at the same time and you waking up in the middle of the night would make that tougher on her.

Thank you also for being so trusting, for loving us and loving seeing us. For smiling at us and being so sweet and cute and always believing we'll be there to take care of you, which we will. We know you have a harder time with strangers, but even in that you are getting better. And I thank you so much for that. Thank you for letting us leave you in the care of babysitters and not needing us to come home in the middle of our plans.

Despite any minor struggles we have with you--nap time, occasional bouts of fussiness, we can't deny we got the best angel baby in the world and how wonderful you are. Thank you for being so great and for making things so easy on your mom and dad. We love you very much and love showing off what a wonderful little person you are!
