Oh, she's growing up so fast. She's beautiful and we so look forward to updates.


Your words bring tears to my eyes...I am only a few years older than you..and I am a grandmother. I had my daughter at 18..I cant believe how the years have flown by..Amelia is so perfectly sweet and chubby cheeked! Makes me wish I still had a baby girl to hold..XXXXOOOO


You're so beautiful Alicia,
as lucky and blessed as you are to have her, know that she will certainly feel the same for you and Papa. you're the beautiful kind of parents that melt little kid hearts and widen their eyes with joy (trust me, mine are growing and it blows my mind to have this great love returned)


She's so cute. And look how well she poses for the camera. Such a beautiful little girl. And I do love the way you dress her.

I'm so happy for you.


Thank you for your words and pictures. And for sharing your honest appreciation and true love.


People say " Enjoy the time" ..... But, You really are........sooooo wonderful! xox

Amelia is so pretty, and growing so much. Where do you get those adorable shoes?!


I feel so lucky that you take time from your sweet babymoon to give little updates to your world-wide circle of friends. Thank you so much!

Chris tender life is ...
Yes! Exactly. Thank you for your wonderful words and beautiful pictures.


I love reading your blog - your photos, your words. Perfect.


You captured it perfectly with your words and photos as usual. :) It's a bittersweet feeling this season brings sometimes. How wonderful to have such a beautiful baby to help balance and joy.


Cherish the moments,each and every one. They are a gift. And how very blessed you are. All this good makes the rough times bearable. I have 7children. Four are mine,two are step,and one little girl is in heaven. Hold on to these moments. I know you are. ;) Thankyou for sharing. Your life,and your heart.


Look at how bright eyed she is ... oh and look at that wonderful head of hair ... Amelia I hope you like your picture taken sweetheart because none of us want to miss a moment of your wonderful life and yes it will be a wonderful life indeed : D


Lovely. Thank you.

Everytime I click over to your blog, I'm overcome with happiness. Happiness that another baby is being showered with love and attention and handmade gifts from her mama. You say and show things in such a peaceful and thankful way. Congratulations again - every day.


You are wonderful. What a wonderful writer! You are so great at stringing together exactly the right words. Amelia is so lucky to have you as her mom. I wish I could be there on that day in the future when she reads all these thoughts of yours. I'd love to see her take them in. Thank you for all of this.


She is beautiful, and I am so happy for you all.

Thank you for your words and pictures--gifts for all of us.


Your writing makes me tear up. So wonderful. I still find my self crying in the car as i drop my boy off at school and am alone on the journey home. It feels so strange to be without him by my side all day.

NO WAY!!! We called our pacifiers Maggies when my children were babies. They are now 15, 12 and 7! I am so glad you are calling it a Maggie. I'm going to cry!


This is beautiful. Your words touch me like no other, and that first darling photo of your girl in her blue with red dress made my breath catch. How true that life is by turns hard and tender and sweet and joyous for everyone, and the presence of the valley makes the peak that much more majestic.


I am so happy for you. A million congratulations. Your beautiful words reminded me of My Darling Child by Sinead O'Connor. I used to listen to that and rock my baby.


I'm still going through the hard times but your recent entries give me hope.


I am grinning from ear to ear. SO happy for you and Andy and your sweet blessed girl.
