Happy Birthday Sophie!

My baby is 1!
And I know it sounds cliche but I can't imagine our family without her.
Still convinced her favorite person is Ry, although the teasing is becoming more frequent.
Ry can get those good belly laughs out of her.
She can also get her to scream whenever she takes her toys, shuts her in a room, or cuddles with mom.
I really hope you two will be best friends (any suggestions?).
She struggles at nap time, climbs on everything, is SO loud...which is very different from Ry.
I am EXHAUSTED after 3 hrs. of church with her, where I am her jungle gym.
When I shush her in church she looks me square in the eyes and lets out a deliberate scream.
She is so close to walking everywhere.
Says the cutest high pitched "hi".
She pants like a dog, smacks her lips when she wants a kiss, and loves to dance by swinging her right arm back and forth.
Happy birthday Sopha!

I still think of Sophie as a 3 month old - like she was when we saw her at Thanksgiving! It is hard to imagine her doing all of these 1 year old things! She is soooo cute!

I love when kids do a one arm swinging dance. It's so cute!! (That is for real, i've know other kids that do that and it's hilarious!) Anyway, Happy Birthday Sofa!! Wish we could have been there, so much we wish we could have been!

She is so cute. Crazy a year has gone by. Wow so glad to read your post. I feel the same way. Grant and Ty have a love/ torture each other relationship that I hope turns into friends one day. I also feel like a total jungle gym/3 hour hall walker during church. Thanks for making me feel better :)!!! Glad to know I'm not the only one that gets screamed at when things don't go the right way.
