...splish, splash, I was taking a bath on a Saturday night...
Who needs TV, books, movies, or any other form of entertainment when you have a very cute 1 year old around to make you fall out of your seat laughing, with her antics and adorableness? It seems like every minute she does something else amazing...like walk while pushing a walker, mimic you as you teach her sign language for "more" or "banana", learn to crawl...backwards, pull herself up using Aunt Sog's leg, or eating a tangerine for the first time, and seeing her face scrunch up when she drinks plain old water out of a bottle-expecting sweet milk. Or eating more banana than thought possible by a one year old...and ocassionally shooting it out of her nose (cleft babies have that special talent).
She was the celebrity at church today, waving and letting others hold her, winning them over with her cute smile. Everyone that saw her was blessed. It was great to show her off.
Aunt Sog reports that she seems to like cookies and licorice, much to her mother's dismay. Frank is trying to win her over by giving her any kind of food he can...and it's working!
Life is definitely busy, but, boy are we having fun!!!!! Christmas will have a new meaning this year...it's not about shopping, gifts, and decorations (cuz we don't have time or money to do any of that now)...it's all about God's greatest gift to us...His love...and the love he has for all His children, especially little spoiled orphans (as Frank has come to affectionately call Sophie). She is God's gift to our family and we couldn't be more happier.
If you haven't had enough of Sophie yet, or just want to see this silly, little girl in action...view the following 30 second video. It's guaranteed to make you smile!
