I love how you say "I think in prayers now." That really is a wonderful response to the many blessings that you have received, isn't it? So thankful that you've shared your darling Amelia with us so that we can rejoice in this tiny miracle of God! Many, many joyous wishes for a 2013 filled with continual miracles, blessings, happiness, good health and prosperity! You are a blessing to so many! Thank you, Alicia! xoxo....Karen P.


Oh my word...happy days indeed..God bless you :)


May your New Year be even more blessed as your beautiful baby grows and delights. Best wishes, Sue, Australia.


Happy New Year to you and your sweet familys. The photos are precious, how dreamy your house looks in winter time.

I love your pictures. Amelia is growing so fast. I love the little monkey resting on her chest. May I ask what the lovely dish is, it looks perfect for a cold winters night meal?

GREAT Amelia fix pics-thank you for sharing your baby and thoughts. I am so happy for you and Andy, and how strange to be so happy for people I really do not know , but wish blessings for-with all my heart. Keep em coming, love that face and goodness what a hairdo!!


Posie I have simply fallen in love with your beautiful world. Your little lady is precious - Savour those sweet smiles! My daughter has been wishing for snow here for Christmas and she can't seem to understand why won't Santa grant her that one wish! Our days are at a stand still near 40 degrees celcius! Sunny would love to be where you live :)

Happy New Year Alicia, Andy, Amelia, Clover Meadow, The Bee and Greta from Rose, Tony, Mavis, Charlie Brown and Big Bill. (It's already 2013 in Australia -- in fact it's nearly lunch time.)

Perfect words..Amelia Fix:)

I started stitching..Little Deer etc :)
Cozy comfy apart from digging out of all our snow.

Love her bedhead hair:)
Meilleurs Voeux~
PS I think I pinned the peachy keen pic:)Or saw it somewhere:)
That second photo?Those lips?
Ooh I want to sleep like her again one day~


PS I remember that feeling of washing behind their ears with that kind of facecloth:) For babies..sigh.


Last night we were reading On the Banks of Plum Creek and Pa came home and I cried! My daughter didn't quite understand. Someday.

Oh these snuggly cozy days. They're beautiful. And that astonishment - I don't think it ends. 6 years into this parenting thing and I swear my heart just cracks open daily from the sheer surprise that this is my life. It's the best.


There is nothing as precious as watching a baby sleep. She is a doll.

Happy New Year to you all. Little Miss Amelia is getting so big so fast. Already 3 months goes by so fast. I just want to squish those cute cheeks of hers. Thank you for sharing her with us. Many more blessings to you in 2013.

Such lovely scenes of your life you tell.
I could just listen like it was an old radio show right up to the speaker as you talk of your life.

You have just inspired me to crack open my collection of little house books that I have had for years and never had the chance to read as a child.

Enjoy those lovely flurries for me and have a most wonderful and safe New Year.
PS I read a comment a bit ago here of how much your girl looks like is really amazing thing how that could be but wow, with each passing post she really does.

Teresa Kasner

Quite simply.. I'm so happy for you and Andy.. and Amelia.

Susan Sawatzky

True definition of "rosebud" lips. What a beautiful baby.


Alicia, your deep happiness is contagious. Thank you for this lovely post from a Midwestern girl now turning the year in Arkansas.
