Last Saturday night we were all home, enjoying some family time together in the play room. Shane and the boys were watching basketball on t.v. and Sophie was playing on her blanket on the floor. I stepped out of the room for (literally) a moment to put my pajamas on. When I came back into the room, Corban and Shane were still sitting on the couch watching television, but Riley (our 3 year old) was no longer in the room. After further observation, I noticed that Sophie was not on her blanket anymore either. I quickly asked Shane where Riley and Sophie had gone. He looked at me kind of surprised by my question, and after looking around the room himself, he replied that he had no idea!! (In his defence, I know it's not really necessary to "watch" a five month old on the floor. They don't really move or go anywhere very fast.)
I called for Riley and thankfully he immediately answered me by peeking his head out the door to the guest room. I quickly asked him what he was doing. He told me...
"Mommy, I puttin' Sophie to sleep for you!"
I looked into the room and sure enough there she was, on the floor, just smiling up at me!
Riley knows he is NOT supposed to pick her up, but apparently he had resorted to new measures in order to move Sophie to the place where he wants her to go.
He had quietly dragged her down the hall, by her little feet-no less, into the guest room.
Obviously, Sophie didn't mind the ride much because she never let out a peep!!!
Bless her heart!
The things Sophie will have to endure when she has THREE brothers!!!!!
I know she will have to be one tough cookie!!!!
