Almost two, so much to do!

Sophie is one of those toddlers that never stops unless she is taking her nap or drinking her milk in front of the TV. Once the milk is gone, she's up and running again. Some days I count the minutes until she is in bed for the night because she wears me out! I cannot keep up with this child, that's for sure.

Yesterday, Joel and the girls were outside washing the car, and of course, Sophia had to get in on the action. These pictures were taken in less than a minute, and none are in perfect focus because she is so dang fast.

Hi mom! Look what I have! (As a side note, I love this picture because I rarely catch her adorable, big, cheesy grin on film.)

Hey! What are they doing over there?

Okay that side is clean enough....

Got to go around to the front now....

Yeah, Daddy definitely needs my help up here.

And she finally slowed down just enough for me to get a close up so you can see that she ate some chocolate pudding before she went out to wash the car. But she didn't slow down enough for it to have great focus. Oh well, you can't have everything.

  1. I love my wild girl too! These pictures look exactly how I capture Ainsley on film. She wears me out to past the point of exhaustion. . . and I love her all the more for it!

  2. Too cute! Annabelle seems to always be on the run too...she won't settle down for anything, but who knows, she may be "easy" child compared to what God gives us next! I thought I'd let her watch a little Sesame Street so I could wash some dishes, and she was entertained for maybe 10 seconds! I thought toddlers loved television!

    Those are still great pictures!

  3. Awww, I can't believe she's almost 2! She's so beautiful. What is it with the 3rd child having to always be the most trouble and always in the action?

  4. She is such a busy girl, but oh so sweet and delicious! Gabriel asked to "play with Sophia, Mommy."

  5. I can always find a smile over here!!!!!

    THANK YOU!!! Ü
