It's been a long time since my babies actually were babies, but looking at your photos brings it all back in a sweet rush. I swear I can smell the baby powder and feel the incredible softness of her skin.
It's amazing how parenthood changes us into people we never knew we were. As she grows you'll find yourself doing things, learning things that were never in your sights before.
I'm so happy for the three of you and for her birthparents who must know what a wonderful family Amelia has been given.

Gina to the three of you. So beautiful.

Miss Bright Eyes! She looks more alert every day that you post new pictures of her. What a sweetheart. :)


I'm just thinking, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be awfully special over at the Paulson house!


Oh her hair! Her sweet room! You and your beautiful words. Precious, precious, precious.


I am so happy for your family about your new addition! Your photos and words are so beautiful. I really love your blog.

Your generosity to your readers is a wonderful part of you. In this "full of Life" time with your new baby, I am ever grateful you take time to share her with us as well as be your creative self. I love every minute I spend with you. Thank you very much.
The Best of Everything to you and your family.


I was just thinking myself that it has been the most beautiful fall. Enjoy these days - in all of their goodness!


ahh, the babymoon, it is bliss isn't it! such a beautiful wee poppet you got there, and what a family and a place, Amelia is going to a modern day anne of green gables, lucky girl x


Enjoying your post as always, such beauty and peace. Many years ago, ahem, there was a song that fits this time of year so well. I know I don't have all the words correct but it's something like. Oh the days dwindle down, to a precious few, November, December. These precious days, I'll spend with you. We, your extended blogging family are fortunate and privileged to spend these special days with you and yours! Love to all the Paulson's.


The world always looks brighter, dreams become possible and the glass is full when you have a baby to love. You are so kind to share your story and pictures.


Amelia is a beauty. She's going to have head full of hair (get ready). I love the way you put the wallpaper on the ceiling. Very pretty. P.S. Don't forget about Clover Meadow.


OOOH I could look at these pix all day long! Look at her darling room!!! More more! (said the baby) -- that's a GREAT book you will love, 'More, More, More, Said the Baby'

Up here in the state above you, it has also been one of the prettiest falls I can remember here in a loooong while.

Also, seriously, is that Cream of Wheat?? It looks so fabulous :)


atmosphere so cosy, so homely and so lovely!
happy weekend to you all, xxx Alessandra


So sweet! Thank you for all the beautiful pictures. Cherish every minute.
