Sorry if yal think that she looks a mess in this photo! She had just woken up (about 2 hours earlier, and yes she was still in her pajamas) and I decided that we were going to be crafty and make a turkey out of construction paper! (the turkey turned out beautiful and only 1 bite of a crayon was taken, at least she did not eat the glue)!
So Sophia, take that plug out of your mouth and tell me a little about yourself these days....
I am 25ish pounds and am sporting the size 4 diaper. I often will let you know when I have a yuck diaper (I hate to be dirty)! I go off by myself and do my business come find you grab my diaper and say YUCK! Yes, she says the word "yuck", I am so proud.
The clothes I wear are 18M some 24M and I can wear a size 4/5 shoe. I just got a new pair of shoes and I think that I could just sleep in them (cowgirl boots)! Thanks Honey for keeping her clothed in the cutest outfits and shoes!
I am a sweet girl. I like to look at books (having you read to me is my favorite). I love Eric Carle books, the Little People books with flaps, and anything with an animal in it! I am really entertained when you play music in the house, I really like to shake it!
I love to open up drawers and take everything out of them (sometimes I just like to sit in them too!) I really like to open up the doors and shut them. I get a BIG laugh out of opening the toilet and putting things in there (like my hand)! This makes my mother almost vom!!
I am still working on building a relationship with my dog Chip, but he is still not a fan of me. I chase him all of the time with toys and spoons, but he does not think that this is fun! He only loves me when I am eating!
In the past few days I have really been working on eating with a fork and spoon! This makes mommy very proud. She cheers each time I stab something and stick it in my mouth! I am eating anything my momma cooks, but L-O-V-E me some vienna sausages! I like juice and water, I gag at the thought of milk in my cups. In fact, I will go and hide the cup.I go to sleep around 9 something and wake up anytime in between 6-730, before the time change I was resting until 8 something, but I feel I need to be up earlier with my parents! Naps....hum, well sometimes I take a power nap (20 minutes) and sometimes I sleep for 2 hours (like a box of chocolates, ya never know what you are gonna get)!
I have taken up a new skill. I sometimes like to color, but sometimes I like to try to eat them. My mommy is letting my play with construction paper and we sometimes will have a project.
I like to help with the laundry. My mom puts stuff in the dryer and I take it out. Same with the dishes, I take the silver wear out and try to get those last few licks off a spoon or fork!
My favorite time of the day is when my mommy sings songs. My favs are I'm a Little Teapot (I am doing the little dance that goes with it), Jesus Loves Me, Open the Windows (momma made this up, it makes me laugh), Itsy Bitsy Spider, Patty Cake.
My other favorite part of the day is when I see my daddy. I hear the garage door go up and I will leave momma in a heartbeat. I will stand at the door and say dada, until he walks in. When he sees me he picks me up every time! I think I make him happy! (seriously to see your husband with your child, doesn't it make you fall in love with him all over again?)I like to laugh at my mommas belly, I will sometimes pat it to make it move.
I have a few words that I say! momma, dada, pup-pup (dog), drink, tiger, deer, ball, bath, moo, cat, Ohhh WOW!, wave hi, say hi and bye-bye
I love to spend time with my grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles.
I like to go to church on Tuesday mornings and play with my friends.
Did I mention, I love bath time! (I am so my mothers child)
I like to brush my own teeth, if my mother helps I will bite on the brush and laugh!
So, for 15 months, I got a lot going on.
Sophia, we love you so much. You are the most precious little girl and we could not be more proud to be your parents. Each day you make us smile.
We love yal!
Aron and Caryn
