Unfocused, but adorable.
Sophie's 2 year old photoshoot

And that title goes for both the pictures as well as the girl in them. I thought her 18-month shoot was hard, but it was a cinch compared to today! She was all over the place, and mostly not on the backdrop. When she was on the backdrop, she was showing me her belly button, doing somersaults, hiding under her blanket, or putting on jewelry. Whenever she left and Joel tried to put her back in, she threw a fit. Finally, we resorted to sticking her on a barstool, but by then, she was finished, thankyouverymuch.




Sophie is such a fun little girl, we so love her energy and her fun-loving personality. She's talking up a storm lately, much of which is walking around the house on a phone saying, "Hewwo? Hi!" in her adorable little squeal. She loves to call people, even if it's the internet service provider, and tell them all about her day. As her mother, I am starting to understand quite a lot of the gibberish, but the world at large is still not quite sure what the heck she is saying. She is very much a girl, always dressing up or putting on make-up. Ever the technology whiz, she still gets awfully excited about electronic gadgets or anything that makes noise and lights up.

She has quite the attachment to her blankets and her monkey pillow. A couple weeks ago, when we were at my parents house, my mom decided to wash them all and threw them in the laundry room. Not much later, Sophie was helping me put the dirty clothes down the laundry chute and saw them down there as she was doing it. She was absolutely beside herself and when I heard her freaking out I thought something horrible had happened, until she pointed down the chute and tearfully told me her "bebe" (blankie) and "pewpew" (pillow) were down there. I'm pretty sure she thought it was just a big hole you threw things down, and that there was absolutely no way to ever get them back again. She was more grateful and excited than I've ever seen her when I so easily went downstairs to retrieve them for her.

She loves to give kisses, and does it with the cutest pucker west of the Mississippi. She insists that both of her sisters, "Bibe" (Bria) and "Woeh" (Chloe), come to give her a hug and kiss before she goes to bed at night and before every nap. She adores her older sisters, but she also teases them to death. She loves to take things from them (even if she doesn't really want it) just to hear them shriek and chase her around the house. She gets a real kick out of that.
I am so thankful for this little stinker.
And I still can't believe she's two.

  2. I still can't decide who I think she looks like between the two of you. She definitely looks tall that's for sure. Your description of the shoot doesn't surprise me one bit after having read your blog. Happy 2nd B-day to her. It went much too fast I'm sure.
