A little bit about the smallest member of the house!

Friday, August 22, 2008

Her middle name should have been Trouble! She spends her days dreaming up new ways to get into things she shouldn't. The funny thing is...she knows perfectly well that she isn't supposed to do half the stuff she does. I always hear her saying "No, no, no, no..." Then she will flash me a little smirk and proceed to get into stuff anyway.
I spend lots of time with Sophie (obviously) and just about everyday, someone comments on the fact that she has blond curly hair and I have straight brown hair. She also has blue eyes to add to the intrigue! I guess this is her way of declaring she is determined to do things her own way. You can barely tell in this next picture that she is holding one of those little rubber stoppers that goes on the door stops. This is one of her daily routines. She pulls them off when I'm not looking, chews on them for a bit, and then hides them. Usually I will find them throughout the day, but currently we still have one stopper MIA.
Sophie can climb up on the couches now and is thrilled to utilize this new talent. I also wanted to post this picture because you can kind of see her cute little curls.
Most nights we try and read lots of books to Sydney and sometimes to Sophie. Usually Sophie doesn't want to sit still to even listen to the first page of her baby books. She would prefer to read the books to herself. Note that Mark is sitting on the floor because I would not let him sit on the couch due to the fact that we had gone swimming earlier in the evening and I didn't want dried chlorine on the sofas.
It's still too hot to even think of going outside so we are often trying to think of new games for the girls. This Saturday afternoon activity was a winner! They had so much fun playing in the sink with random kitchen equipment and lots of soap and water.
Some other fun things about Sophie:
She can say,
Nana (Sydney)
No, no, no, no (No)
Ba (ball)
Bubba (bubbles)
Meow (kitty)
Ni..Ni (night, night)
Wa, wa (water)
More (food)
Bah (bath)

Her favorite book is "Ten Little Ladybugs" (which we just happen to have two copies of!)
Her favorite foods are probably cheese cubes, ice-cream, and peaches
She LOVES Baby Einstein
Her favorite song is "Itsy, bitsy, spider" and she can do the motions with the song
She likes to scream (and I think she sounds just like a Roman candle going off...kind of that really loud, piercing, screech or scream), often when we are in public places or places she needs to be quiet...like church or a library
Sophie loves playing with Sydney, it really doesn't matter what, just as long as she is near Sydney and participating somehow!

And that is a little bit about our little Sophie Grace

What a cutie. I can't get over how big and grown up she is getting. What a fun age!

I know, it is the younger ones who cause the most mayhem, usually. She is so cute!

Sophie sounds like quite the little character. Too bad that we don't live closer so that our little ones can play and rampage together!

I see that Sophie's reading "The Host" in that couch climbing picture! She's so grown up! I love the little curls. I think Avery's as big as she is already (or bigger!) Ha ha! What a cutie!

There is something about that second AND third child that throws you for a loop! They want to do everything their older brother or sister can do. So, have you finished reading the host? I read it a few months ago...we should discuss it!

fun to learn about sophie! i think it must be something with babies born on may 29th and thinking they can get away with anything b/c christian does the same grin/smirk thing b/4 he does something he's not supposed to.

for more indoor fun, blow up 30-40 balloons and then sit back and watch the fun!

She looks so innocent! ...and she is beautiful.

I love this age! They are too much fun and interested in everything. I was meaning to ask you how you set it up so you know when people update post things on their blog. Is it hard?

She is adorable! Ten little ladybugs was Carter's favorite book at that age too. I love her little smile.
