Happy 7th Birthday, Sophie!

Posted Nov 19 2013 10:48am

Happy birthday, sweet girl! #seven #iloveher

I’m a few days late with this post because Sophie’s birthday was on a Saturday and it was a crazy busy day. As I mentioned in an earlier post, Sophie is going to be a flower girl in a wedding in December. Of course, the bridal shower for the bride happened to fall on her birthday! Since Sophie’s birthday is so close to the holidays, I really felt that we needed to just get her parties overwith on that day anyway. SO, our schedule was:

11:30 Bridal shower

2:00 Friends party where Sophie takes gymnastics

5:30 Family party at our house

9:00 Mom passes out

Despite the busy-ness, we had a WONDERFUL day celebrating our girl!

Sophie and Krisha

Sophie and Krisha, the bride, and our favorite babysitter whom we hate to lose! Dang growing up and all that.

Krisha’s mom is my best friend Luanne, and we met their family when I was about six months pregnant with Sophie. Krisha came to the hospital and held Sophie on the day she was born, so I thought it was very fitting that we’d celebrate her wedding shower on Sophie’s birthday!

Next, Sophie and I beat it over to the gym where she takes gymnastics, Jack n Jill’s Hill, for a super-fun friends party. Bobby met us there and my mom watched the boys at our house. This party was a blast! Since it wasn’t at our home, she could invite more friends than usual and the girls had a GREAT time.  The party coordinator did an awesome job, involving the girls in several fun relay games and then guiding them through a circuit of jumping, cartwheeling, and other gymnastics fun. They played HARD!

The party was awesome. Sophie has some really sweet friends! After it was over we headed back home to celebrate with our family.

Slacker mom WIN: I ordered these Disney Fairies decorations from Amazon, and on Friday afternoon went to Kroger and found a cake that just happened to be decorated to match. WOOT! I did make the gluten-free cupcakes w/ caramel icing for us G-free folks.

I must say I enjoyed every minute of celebrating my Sophie. She is truly the daughter of my dreams. The night before her birthday, when I was tucking her in to bed for the last time as a 6-year-old, I said, “I’m so proud to be your mommy.” And she said, “I love being your daughter.” and then she burst into song: “I love you mommy, oh yes I do, I don’t love anyone as much as you…” It was so sweet and made me a little misty-eyed.

Sophie has definitely proven to me in her seven years that she can accomplish just about anything she wants to if she works hard. Her sweetness to others brings me so much joy. I love the way she loves and cares for her friends, and I am so proud of the young lady she is becoming.

Happy birthday, Sophie Diane! I love you with all my heart!
