Oh the Drama!


I had to post these pictures for the same reason that I had to take them - this is a big part of Amelia's personality. A part of her that cracks us up on almost a daily basis. Amelia is showing us what a girl she really is, so unbelievably emotional. On several occasions we have been out and someone will come over and say something to her, one poor college aged guy was just looking at her and smiled, and Amelia will scrunch up her face, open her mouth, tears start flowing and she does this funny little no sound coming out for 10 seconds kind of cry. I feel so bad for the people who are just being nice to her. She scares so easily even at home. That's what happened in these pictures. Daddy was watching the Michigan - Notre Dame game (Go Blue!) and Michigan did something good and Daddy let out a Whoop. Well, Amelia did her thing... scrunched her face, opened her mouth, tears started flowing and then finally - the squeal. Bless her heart she was so scared! Then when Daddy picked her up and finally calmed her down (the second picture) she was still doing the suck in fast little breaths (whatever you call that) to make sure he still realized she was upset. Oh how I wish you all could hear it because it is so pitiful, yet so cute. And it doesn't even have to be a loud noise or scream, you catch that girl off guard and you better be prepared for the waterworks. We laugh thinking what she is going to be like as she gets older! Kenny and I were talking about what she is going to be like when we are with his family. His family is so loud - and that is not said in a rude way, because he as well as the rest of his family know they are loud. I think it comes with having a big family - you have to fight to be heard. :) Anyway, she is our little emotional baby and I think she is already trying to claim her throne as the Drama Queen!

Awww, poor thing. She's probably crying because you are subjecting her to watching football. . . or maybe she's just not a Michigan fan. . . Ok, I'd better stop before I get banished from this blog. =)

I think you should frame one of her HUGE smile beside one of these... in B&W. . . It'd kinda be like that Drama Mask thing-- Comedy and Tragedy...

I remember those silent moments... you know the wail is coming, and it's gonna be loud... but for the moment a silent pause in the shape of an O
