I seem to be writing more and more about Sofia. Imagine that?! :)
Well here is another one. Exactly 11 months ago TODAY, my precious was born. I know I have been posting her monthly "birthdays" but this one has hit home for me. Next month she will be a YEAR old! A year for the rest of us is basically another year and a reminder that we are plain OLD!
But a year for a newborn to a toddler, is a pretty big freaking deal! For the first month all she did was sleep (oooh the days) and now that she's 11 months old -- she is a terror. I use the word terror very lovingly. :) Ok, so she's not a terror, but I have nicknamed her "Hurricane Sofia". She leaves a trail of destruction everywhere she goes! Which sometimes comes in handy when I can't find her...I just follow the trail of toys....usually to the trash. SERIOUSLY!
But she is so much fun now that she is getting older. She says a few words....you might have read my earlier posts about her saying "GO". She also says "Jax" which is our retarded dog. Again, I use the word retarded as a term of endearment. My mom used to call us that so I am assuming she also meant it in a good way. Right?
Anyway, back to Sofia. Oh yeah, she's a LOT of fun!! OH and last night, she started taking REAL steps!!!!! I couldn't believe it. When I saw it for myself, I of course cried. My baby is growing up so fast!!!! I swear I remember her being so little and me thinking "what the heck am I supposed to do with this?"
So as I look back on the past 11 months, I realize how fast time really does fly. And I think I'm kinda diggin' this whole "mom" thing. I guess Sofia can have brothers and sisters after all. Now whether or not they grow up relatively normal, that's a whole other conversation....and a different blog post!
So happy 11 months to my precious Hurricane Sofia. I LOVE YOU!
As always, here is a picture of my itty bitty Sofia....she was SO LITTLE!!!
A more recent one....can you sense the attitude? Lord help me!
