Our Sophie Girl

Our precious little Miss Priss turned 17 months old last week. 17 MONTHS!?!?!? Can you believe it? She is so...not a baby anymore, but a BIG girl. I've noticed this especially when I look at pictures I've taken of her lately. I am blown away by how much she is changing. She is not my precious little baby anymore (sniff, sniff) but more a sweet toddler!!!

When did that happen?

Sophie is so....full of personality. She is spunky and just plain full of herself.

She truly keeps us laughing all the time.She thinks she is so...funny and will laugh at herself too. She is such a little mommy and is ALWAYS trying to help me with Hudson. When it's time for his nap, she will walk into his room and turn on his fan for me. If he needs something out of his dresser, I can ask Sophie and she will go get it for me. Nine times out of ten she comes back with exactly what I asked for. She loves to "help" feed him a bottle, or grab a diaper when he needs a change. It's AMAZING how much she cares for him. Sometimes she smothers him though, but it's just because she is trying to love on him so... much.

The most exciting thing to see recently is Sophie and Hudson interact. I LOVE seeing them play together. The both look forward to bath time every night.

They will just splash and splash each other in the tub and then laugh and laugh. Oh I love to hear both of them laugh at the same time.
It's pure bliss.

Sophie and Riley are two peas in a pod too. Each day, while Sophie is napping, Ri will ask me if he can go wake her up. He told me he misses her when she is sleeping.

I actually was brave enough and let the two of them paint together last week.

This was Sophie's first time painting with "real" paint. She LOVED it.

Most of the paint ended up on her though, but she had a blast.

We ADORE you little one!

You are truly a precious gift from the Lord to us.
We LOVE you more than words could ever express.

Beautiful post. She sure has grown so much since the time I started following your site and so has Hudson. I love her smiles, a future beauty queen!

She is such a doll! The love in your home just radiates from her! It is so precious that she and her brothers are so close, too. I am sorry you have had such a bout of sickness in your home. No fun for anyone, and especially exhausting for Mommy!!! Blessings!

I have my hands so full, I don't know how you've survived two little ones so close in age. Actually make that 4 little ones. Your kids are so lucky to have such a fun and sweet mom. Soph's the cutest...after mine of course. J/K We are so blessed to have our girls.
