Bug Watching - 2001


Many children regress when a new baby arrives. Amelia flourished.

She turned into the model big-sister. Even when Natalie was still a "blob baby" Amelia was reading to her and playing a version of "dress-up" where she put hats and glasses on Nat and draped her with scarves.

I got laid-off by MCI at the end of February and built Amelia a two-level fort with a slide in the back yard.

Amelia got another trip to Disneyland in the summer when her grandparents took her. After they left, I was so jealous that I took Friday off and rushed down to join them.

Amelia had a "pony party" birthday at a riding center. The kids got to play games, take a tractor ride, play in a hay maze, and ride horses.

By the end of the year, Natalie was doing everything she could to keep up (and catch-up) with Amelia and they had become the best of friends.
