I cannot believe that 10 months has gone by so quickly! A year ago I was bigger than a house and now
I just wish I had a bigger house! (It is amazing how much space someone so small can take up.)
Sophie is weighing in at 23 pounds 11 oz - at least that is her wrestling weight. She is 30 inches long.
She is very heavy to carry around, which can be tough. She had her first cold a few weeks ago and
wanted to be held a lot. I learned to do a lot of things with one arm - and now I have well-toned arms -
just in time for the sleeveless fashions of summer.
She is crawling at lightening speeds, pulling up and standing on anything that will support her weight,
and she magically crawled up the stairs a few weeks ago without having shown them much attention before
that. She has no fear of the darned things. I, on the other hand, am besides myself over this.
Her eating is still going pretty well - although she is getting a little finicky. She seems to have an
affinity for some summer fruits, namely strawberries and blueberries . (messy, messy)
She loves books and has learned to turn the pages - in the right direction even! She also has learned
to kiss the various characters in her books. Come to find out, Aunt Norma (her sitter when I work) has
taught her these neat tricks.
Sophie utters a lot of mamamamas and dadadadas, but does so indiscriminately, at least we think. One
day she may surprise us! (I see it now - 3 am - DADADADADAA.... hee hee)
So now on to the lazy days of summer (whoever uttered this phrase didn't have a near-one year old at the
time, I am quite sure.) Hope to get a baby pool and hang out - do a little hiking with the backpack, and
jogging some of the local lake trails with the baby jogger. So much gear I tell you!
That's it for this update. Take care!
