Sweet Sophie Is One Year Old
WHERE HAS THE TIME GONE?
I was there when sweet Sophie took her first breath. What an amazing experience that was. And I’ve been privileged to spend a lot of time with her as she has grown, step by step…. all the way to her first birthday. She is a sunny little girl, fearless and adventurous. Her smile takes up her entire face and when she turns that smile your way you feel her joy. She wasn’t feeling all that well on her birthday, however. She was getting a bad cold, and yet, somehow she rallied to be the star of her own birthday show.
THE RELUCTANT CAKE SMASH
She wasn’t quite sure what to do with her own little birthday cake so she took a rather delicate approach.
BIG SISTER TO THE RESCUE
In times like these a girl needs a big sister. Brynn was more than happy to stick her fingers in the sweet icing and show Sophie just how tasty the treat sitting before her could be.
MAYBE DAD COULD HELP WITH THIS MONSTER
Before she dug in too much herself she figured maybe daddy would like a taste. He did!
IT TOOK A WHILE.. BUT EVENTUALLY
Sweet Sophie got the hang of the cake thing. It wasn’t so bad after all. In fact it was downright delicious!
She did us all proud by getting the sticky icing everywhere, just like all self-respecting one year olds do. And she ate her fill before mommy decided enough was enough. That was fine with her. She just licked her fingers and enjoyed her moment.
OF COURSE THERE’S MORE TO A BIRTHDAY THAN CAKE…
There’s family and fun and presents. This birthday party had all of that, too!
TO THE CROWD’S DELIGHT….
In addition to all of that charm.. those cheery smiles.. enthusiasm for all of her gifts… she took a few steps! Way to go, birthday girl. HIGH FIVE!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SWEET SOPHIE
There simply are no words for how much we love you!
