Up and about
Sophia is a joy. She is up and about all the time. Once she started walking full time (on Thanksgiving) she has not stopped. She is a little helper. She helps us load (or should I say unload) the dishwasher, she closes doors for us unless it is the refrigerator door. When the refrigerator is open, she picks out what she wants to eat and brings it to us. Now that she can reach the snack draw she grabs the goldfish or animal crackers and brings them to us signing "more cookie."
Speaking of signing, this girl has quite the vocabulary. She signs a new word every day. The one that has surprised us the most is sleep. She will cry and sign sleep when she is tired. It is amazing. She doesn't miss a thing. She is like a sponge. She has a favorite book called "Moo, Baa, La La La" She hands us the book so we can read it to her. She makes the sounds of the sheep, cow, and dog as we read it to her. She also signs the words cat and duck when she reads that book.
Every day with Sophia is a joy. We can not wait until Christmas so the whole family could be together. Nick and Katie will both be with us this Christmas. We are really looking forward to some great family time.
