Three years ago today, my Sophia Diane entered the world at 7:31 a.m.
I was very anxious at the end of my pregnancy. I just wanted her out. I couldn’t wait to meet her! I knew she’d have lots of hair. And she did not disappoint! From the moment she was born, people commented on her hair.
When she was about three weeks old, it started sticking straight up.
It finally got heavy enough to lay flat when she was about 6 months old.
Then it turned blonde!
And got really, really long. Maybe because her mommy can’t bear to cut it.
Her hair is usually the first thing people notice about her. And it is beautiful! I’ve even written more than one post about it.
So, anyhoo, girl’s got a beautiful head of hair. It’s kind of her thing.
Of course though she could be completely bald and she’d still be the most beautiful girl in the world to me. She’s my baby. And I can’t believe she’s three.
At three Sophie is much more independent than she was a year ago. But she still lets me know that she loves me and wants to spend time with me. Being home with her all day is truly so much fun. I love it when she talks to me in her sweet little voice, sings along to her favorite songs, “reads” her favorite books to me, and quotes entire scenes from her favorite TV show, “Word World”. I love her sweetness, her stubbornness, her smile, her touch, and her silliness. I love the way she’ll prance around in a tutu while playing trains. I love the way she ALWAYS tries to climb UP a slide instead of going down. I love the way she asks me “What happened?” or “What’s wrong?” when she wants ME to ask HER those questions. I love the way she always tries to get me to give her Cheez-its for breakfast. I love, love, love, love being her mommy.
So Happy Birthday, Sophie girl. You’re my favorite girl, my sweetheart, and an amazing gift from God. I love you and I am so proud of you!
