Big Girl

These days if you ask Sophie if she is a big girl or a baby, she will always say "big girl,"  - and it's true. As much as I want her to stay little, she is growing up before my eyes, and I am amazed at how much she learns from day to day. Sometimes I swear her brain is literally exploding.

We can sometimes negotiate with her now to either avoid a tantrum, or end one. She knows so many words, and some of her colors. She has also learned to smile at me and say "pease" (please) when she wants something, and I almost always give in. She loves to give hugs and kisses, and one of her favorite games is to make all her animals kiss each other. She also loves the potty, but I'm not ready to cross that bridge yet.

She has started to recognize and love characters. Current favorites are Santa, Mickey & Minnie Mouse, Daniel Tiger, Curious George, Cinderella, and Nemo.

The other day I put her hair in a pony tail for the first time - wow that made her look grown up.

She has become more imaginative in her play and has gotten better at entertaining herself

And the other day she learned how to open doors. So far she has only used this ability to throw away trash, but I bet it won't be long before she starts getting into things that used to be off limits.

I can't wait to see her! They are all going to get in so much trouble together :) Today I caught my kids sitting on top of the piano and playing it with their feet...
