All About Sophie

On Sunday Sophie laid on my chest from noon-4, alternating crying and sleeping as she cut 3 new teeth. She's starting to try and stand for short amounts of time and does quite well with help. She's a champion at the yoga position downward dog (still trying to catch this one on film) and she can hold it for 10 seconds.

Before the cold, wet weather came to town we enjoyed one last day at the park.

In PT she continues to make strides in strength and balance. Her PT would like to see her crawl more, but she prefers her signature sidewinder move.
PT was full of bench sitting (on PT's leg) and standing with support, over and over.

After her first day with pig tails, her hair stood straight up once the rubber bands came out.

In DT (and every day as she really has fun), Sophie is learning how to feed her baby dolls from bottles and spoon/fork feeding them. Sometimes Bubba helps out.

At her weekly developmental playgroup, Sophie enjoys knocking down blocks faster than they can be built up.

The water mat is one of her favorite toys,
she loves banging the drum with the feather duster,

but nothing beats the ball pit. The staff have really been working me to get her one for Christmas.
In ST we have made a few photo albums of her favorite toys and people. Books have become favorites of Soph's.

Yet no therapy or playgroup beats time spent with her best guy, Daddy.

Oh my goodness. She is an absolute doll - so precious. I'm so sorry that she had teeth pain though. Ouch!

Love the pics! Hope Sophie gets over the teething soon. Aren't ball pits awesome? Hope you get one! I'd love to get one for Kayla, but we don't have enough room in our house.

You cried like that on me when we realized we were out of wine :) OMG that is making me laugh!! I miss ST with our favorite Louise. Squeeze and hugs from L.

What a cutie! Love all the new things she's doing but sorry to hear about teething pain- that always stinks! Hope it gets better/easier soon for your sweet pea :)

She looks like she is doing well with her PT. Good to see that she enjoys the outdoors. She is a cutie.

Teething is a bear, for sure.

Santa may have just ordered one that easily collapses and stores flat...

How can you tell that story to the world? That was our secret! I'll pass on the squeeze.

whatever to us-
She really is making huge gains all the time.

She's happy as long as her Bubba (brother) is around. Thanks!
