Millie’s big cousin, Amelia, (my sister’s daughter) moved here in May from Ohio. We were all so thrilled to have them back in Mesa. Lonica and I get together at least once a week, and if we aren’t getting together, than one of us is watching both of the girls. It has been so wonderful to have my sister, and friend, near by again. Happiest of all, could perhaps be Amelia. She has become Millie’s number one fan, and with some time to figure things out, Millie has become quite fond of Amelia too. At only 15 months apart, Millie and Amelia remind me a lot of my sister and I. We too are 15 months apart, and getting to watch these two grow up around each other makes me feel like I’m taking a look into the past. Amelia is such a huge Millie fan that Lonica doesn’t dare tell Amelia of an up coming play date until it’s just about to happen for fear of having to hear “Millwee, Millwee. See Millwee.” OVER and OVER and OVER again. The best part about this little arrangement is, in March Millie will have an other new girl cousin that she will be 16 months older than and she then will be able to go bananas over her.
