Amelie's Day

I decided to keep track of all of Amelie's activities again -- maybe I'll do this once every month or so. Here is a play-by-play of everything that Amelie did for a day (about a 24 hour period starting last night -- I know that's a little strange, but hey, it's what worked out).

If you'll note, there are some changes from last time, but some things are still the same.
