Before we left we had some pictures taken of Sophie. We have never had any pictures taken of her and I wanted to get some nice ones before she got too big. I used a Groupon and the deal only let me choose a few pictures, but she cried for most of the session, so there were only a few goods ones to choose from any way. Here are some of my favorites:
We weren't able to get any smiling pictures of her until a grabbed a bear from the shelf and put it out with her. She felt much better once she had a friend.

Sophie also had lots of time to play outside before we left. The weather was nice, and exploring the yard gave her something to do while I was cleaning and packing. Since we don't have any toys out back right now, she entertains herself by climbing on the lawn chairs, playing with the sprinkler, and gathering rocks.
