Sophia's Firsts

It has been a while since I last posted. Just too busy and when I do have down time I find I am doing something else. Hopefully now that we are once again ditching the TV I will rediscover some "free" time and recommit to updating the blog more often. A lot has happened in the past 2 months since my last post.

Sophia now has 3 teeth on the bottom and we have learned it is no longer fun to have her suck on our fingers because she bites!

She had her first Thanksgiving in North Carolina. We had a small family gathering with Phillip's second cousins. Sophia also experienced her first "kiss" during this visit.


Her first Christmas was a noisy, chaotic, exciting, family filled blast! Per our family tradition she had her first photo with Santa and didn't scream.





She started solid foods over our vacation and has enjoyed sweet potato, banana, avocado, and of course, rice cereal. She is a pretty good eater and I trust the experience will become even more rewarding when she has a highchair to eat in instead of her walker!

Mmmm.....brown sugar. She's definitely my daughter:)

She uses rolling as a main form of transportation and can sit unsupported most of the time. She occasionally looses her balance but enjoys the world from this new perspective.

There are many many fun photos to share from out time at home over Christmas including pictures of the Sibling Bake-off between Skipper and I. I will try to set up a Picassa or Fliker account so I can share the photos with you all. I hope you have enjoyed this little update!

More soon.
