#2 Turns 2: Sophie's birthday

Sophie is 2.

For one week I can say I have a 2 month old, a 3 year old and a 2 year old.
You have had this bandaid on for a week now. Up until now you had been too scared to have  bandaid on but when this mosquito bite swole up you panicked and won't let us take this bandaid off.
 Sophie you are a joy.

You like things to be in their place. You like order, structure and being useful.

When baby brother cries you look like you are physically pained. Every single time.

You sleep with your puppy, O the Owl and Olaf the snowman. You love to sleep and take great naps but currently you get so giddy about playing with Claire that you jump all over your crib, chew the sides, undress and slap your stomach and take off your diaper all while trying to climb out.

You are a happy girl. you love to smile, giggle and generally exude joy. Even when you're getting in trouble...

You love to copy big sister and you both play together wonderfully until you feel threatened. Then you pinch, bite and push.

You love black beans and you drink a lot. You eat s.l.o.w.l.y.

You have recently had a language explosion and you like to sing "e- i-ooo!" (Let it go) over and over again.

This last weekend we turned your car seat forward facing and you moved to the back with sister.

You are mechanically minded and can work almost any button, lock or switch.

We really love you sweet girl and can't wait to see the woman you grow into.

You got some lock/puzzles (brilliant for long car rides by the way since the pieces don't come off). You also got several books like Little Blue Truck, Pout Pout Fish, Are You My Mother?, Push Here and Doggies.

We were at the family reunion in Brownwood for your birthday and they surprised you (and us!) with a beautiful cake for you, cousin Troy and Karen and Earl's anniversary. Everyone sang and you tried to put your finger in the cake.

Everyone was taking pictures and I was telling you and Claire to back up and the next thing I knew Claire's face was BURIED in the beautiful cake!

Apparently my aunt Susie said to you that you could get a lick because your finger was hovering by the cake. And... Claire took that "lick" literally.

Needless to say no one got a piece of cake after a nose had been buried in the middle of it. ;)

Priceless cake moment, ha! And so sweet the learn Sophie. She's a doll, probably more of an action figure doll which who would want it any other way ;)
