18 months!!

I can't believe it, can you?? She's such a big girl! We went to the Dr. this morning and it was awful!! Sophie screamed as soon as he walked in the door and didn't stop until he left. We didn't even do shots! He said everything looks good; she's 31 1/2" (50 %), 22.8# (25%), and head circumference is in the 95%! I have a prissy, petite girl with a noggin!
Miss Independent likes to do thing her way.

I.E. yogurt all over her dress from feeding herself and screaming when I tried to help.

We had a 1 1/2 year celebration with s'mores. And I quote Sophie, "MMMMM".

Ready for Christmas

Sophie helped me decorate gingerbread cookies the other day. She quit helping after the first bite of sugary goodness.

We also like to spend a lot of time in our pajamas...

Like Da da

Sophie grabbed Da da's hat the other day and jumped on her car. She's turned in to a BIGTIME daddy's girl recently. Actually, it's Ga ga's girl. She's having a hard time with "d"s, but I don't think Ga ga minds one bit!

Busy morning

A few days ago Sophie experienced a busier morning than usual...which is pretty hard to do. She's on the move all the time unless she's sleeping. Anyway, her friend Naomi was over for a visit and Sophie wanted to preach the Word. Naomi loved it! She laid there and smiled and cooed at Sophie while she flipped through the pages of her Bible and jibber-jabbered. It was one of the cutest moments of Sophie's life. Then, she placed her babies on the chair and preached to them.
They were such a good audience. After that, she built a tower. The tallest she's ever built. It was pretty impressive.
Another first for the day was smiling when I would say "smile". She did it several times and thought it was quite funny. This was one of the most authentic smiles she had. Isn't she a doll!!

A "sweet" time in Arkansas

We spent a few days in Arkansas with Matt's family for Thanksgiving. While we were there Sophie was able to indulge in a few new things. Cream cheese frosting from our birthday carrot cake. She only stuck her finger in it 4 times.
We were working on "turkey" cookies for Thanksgiving. I couldn't even get the M&Ms on for eyes without Sophie snatching them. She also loved the feathers...

We made a purchase before we left for the 8 hour drive. Sophie was able to watch her Praise Baby on the drive, and it was such a nice time. No screaming or yelling or trying to get out of her car seat or headache. It was sweet!!! The funny thing about the pictures is that she's wearing her daddy's boxers. She thought she was something else!

Sophie also had her first taste of hot chocolate. It was more like luke-warm, but she loved it!

I'm only 1/2 a month late on posting. Why do my days go by so fast??
The cute little answer:
We attended Haunt the Zoo and stood in line a long time. Then we walked through the zoo really fast because Sophie was tired and cranky. So here is a picture of us in line.

Still standing in line. Her favorite part of the night was seeing Chick-fil-a cows and this crazy bird. She kept giving him high-5's and laughing, then putting her hands over her eyes (because that's what you do when you're hiding). It was really cute!


Sophie is a pretty picky eater, but the other day she wasn't picky at all!! She loved her spaghetti! We've offered it to her multiple times, but just recently she's decided to like it. It's a lot of fun to watch, but not so much to clean up - at least she's eating!

16 months

She still won't sit still for a picture, so once again, this was the best of the bunch. She's a busy body! Even with snotty nose and runny eyes - thanks Oklahoma allergies! And this is what Daddy picked out for her to wear - isn't it lovely. At least she has a bow in her hair!! He stayed at home with her this morning while I worked for a few hours. He said she LOVED playing in the backyard independently!!

Sittie and Giddie's

This past week Sophie and I made the trip to Clinton to spend time with Sittie and Giddie. We cooked a little, ate a lot, and made some fun memories! This was the first time Sophie really played with them and boy, did they get a kick out of it!Sophie loved Giddie's glasses...
Can't you tell?!
Giving Sittie a "high-five" for climbing up on the couch.

She backed herself up to the chair and sat down. This is the booster seat all of us grew up using. Still in good quality, minus all the safety regulations.

Getting her hair did with Giddo.
I just love this picture.
She was so proud of herself. This is the first time/couch she has been able to master with her climbing skills. Don't you love the red!! Boomer!!

On her way to giving Giddie a big smooch.
Take that raccoon. She could actually carry that thing around. It's taller and heavier than her!

Sophie's life lately

With the whole world being sick, we haven't done much lately as to avoid the plagues. So, here are some pictures of what this silly little monkey has been up to. We enjoyed some time at the zoo with April, Grayson & Graham, Tosha & Lainey, and Roxie & Graham. I have to say, Sophie was the fussiest that day, but I guess everyone has an off day sometimes. She did enjoy the gorillas and acting like a "big" kid.

Here she is helping daddy water the new grass seeds.

Just being a goofball - trying to get us to laugh at her. It isn't hard!

Enjoying a warm marshmallow. She loved it!

15 months

Is she really old enough to be wearing my heels?? It seem like just last week Sutton (yes, my brother) was wearing my mom's heels and we were putting make-up on him! I don't think it left any type of emotional scars. Anyway, all that to say, my baby girl is 15 months old, strong, and healthy! She's 30 in. long (or short) and weighs 21 lbs. The thing I'm most proud of is her head circumference - in the 95th percentile!! I knew she was smart!
And she's all over creation!!!

That time of year again

The Great State Fair of Oklahoma!!These 2 pictures just crack me up! It's like she knew exactly what was going on.
Telling the chickens to come here

Quality time with the bunny. She didn't try to gash an eye out or pull an ear. I was impressed.
We had fun eating grease and people watching. Oklahomans can sure be interesting people. Thanks State Fair!
