We had just gotten Amelie's birthday outfit in the mail (thanks to a gift certificate) and Calliope absolutely couldn't wait for Amelie to try it on. And then was just beyond thrilled with the result.
It made my heart sing to see how proud Calliope was of her little sister.
In case you can't catch the dialogue, it's:
Calliope: "only girls, not boys."
Me (very hoarse from a cold), laughing, "okay. Who's the cutest birthday girl? And birthday sister?"
Calliope: "This birthday girl only choosed [sic], only girls. Right? (pause) She said yes."
And some firsts:
First good sleep photo. She is very attached to Monkey Love... a lovey given to Calliope
before she was born, but never used until now -- Calliope didn't want one.
I love it that Amelie has something from her namesake, my mom.
|Her first time wearing a barrette. No one could argue that she needs it, but it's fun nonetheless.|
|And finally... at sixteen days shy of a year, she finally has not one but two brand new teeth!|
