Amelia Rose

The day my daughter was born almost 18 years ago was one of the happiest days of my life. We did not know if we were going to have a boy or a girl. We had picked out names for a boy, and we had picked out names for a girl. But, my husband was leaning towards going with his families tradition of just a first and last name if it was a girl. I wasn't sold on this idea, but my mind was open...that is until she was born. After she was born and we saw how beautiful she was, my husband said to me that I could name her whatever I wanted. I didn't skip a beat....she would be Amelia Rose. I knew that if it was a girl that she would be Amelia as I was always very interested in Amelia Earhart. The Rose comes from my Great Grandmother. And the name fits her.

Amelia is getting ready to end her High School years and begin her college years. She is our only child which makes the next couple of months that much more stressful for me. I'm thrilled to see her begin her new life, but I'm sad that I'm losing my little Amelia Rose.

This is a picture that I took of Amelia for one of her Senior Pictures. Since we're low on cash this year...I decided to take them myself....

I can't wait to see what she does with her life and creativity.

This pic reminds me of Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman) and I think she is beautiful - your daughter has such a pretty name.
It is scary when you think of the years flying past and now here she is on the threshold of her life.
Jazz my middle son is coming to the end of his football scholarship, he is 19 in October and i think he wants to take over the running of my husbands business eventually (as wellas playing his football)
China my baby is just 16 and is counting down the days till August when she can learn to drive...
