Dear World

Dear World,

Hi there, I'm Sophia. I've been here for almost two months, so I thought I'd tell you a little about myself.

My family is infatuated with me. I have each one of them wrapped around my adorable little fingers and toes.

I have recently started to smile on purpose. My mom is especially delighted with this.

A few weeks ago I got a package in the mail from my mom's amazing cousin. It had a cute ball in it (shown in the photo above) that matches my room. Janene made one of these for my cute cousin David Joseph, but my mom had no hope of being able to make one on her own. I think my mom was even guilty of coveting the ball that David Joseph had. When Janene mailed this one to me, my mom was almost crying she was so excited.

Really, could I be any cuter? And could my hat be any bigger? It matches my cute nightgown though, so my mom made me wear it anyway. I showed her. I spit up in it a few minutes later.

I have started to make baby noises that make my mom's heart melt.

I smell really good. I smell so good that I catch my mom inhaling my scent every chance she gets.

I have a love hate relationships with baths. Sometimes I really love the water and smile and coo and am extremely happy. Other times I scream and scream so that my mom and dad have to frantically wash me and get me out before I give them a headache. It's kind of humorous.

My older brother REALLY loves to give me kisses. My mom keeps telling him to do it softly or to just kiss my forehead or toes, but he can't resist my cheeks. Maybe he'll grow out of it, but I guess for now I just have to live with it.

I really, really hate my car seat and going for car rides. I am usually pretty laid back, but get me in the car seat, and I can make some noise. I haven't even gone on very long car rides yet... only to Provo and Salt Lake... but I have definitely convinced my parents that I won't do very well on a road trip this summer. In fact, I cry so much in the car that my parents decided to buy a plane ticket for my mom and me!

I really, really like being in the swing. The picture above is when I was exactly one month old. My brother and sister like to turn on the music and get the animals going and that's pretty cool too. Sometimes I fall asleep in my swing.

Speaking of sleep, I like to play a really funny trick on my mom and dad. My mom feeds me and I'll drift off to sleep. I pretend I'm REALLY asleep so she lays me down somewhere safe. I wait just long enough for her to think she is going to get something done, and right when she stands up or reaches for her book or computer I open my eyes and start wailing. It's really fun.

Mother's Day was a few days ago. I didn't get a present for my mom like my brother and sister did, but I'm pretty sure that just being here was enough for my mom. She seems overjoyed to have me here, so I'll just keep doing what I do and we should be good.

She is too cute! I've gotta meet her in person! Let me know if you have time for lunch sometime. I would love to come see you and spare Sophia the trip in a car seat...

Your little Sophia has quite the vocabulary for one so small. :) And it sounds like she is keeping everyone so busy. I find myself wanting to hold that little one and hug her tight. :) So cute.

I just love babies. I am so glad you have her.
