Sniffy and Pooh...

We try to wash Sofia's 2 favorite things once a week. Her sniffy (blanket)and Pooh. The older she gets, the harder it is to have both items missing for the short time they are in the laundry. Tonight was no exception! Sofia insisted on going in the laundry room to see if sniffy and Pooh were dry...

I think Pooh's ready...

I see sniffy...but I can't reach it...

Don't ever wash sniffy and Pooh again Mama!!!

Being One is So Much Fun!!

Fun Facts About Sofia...
  • She loves books! She studies each page and turn the pages all by herself! She chit chats with the book as if she is reading. So cute!
  • She has many new words: Block, walk, papa, Dora, puppy,fetch,and my favorite...mama.
  • She loves to throw the ball to the dogs.
  • She loves going for long walks and riding in her little car to see "Pooh".
  • She holds on to things and walks. She likes to hold our hands and walk everywhere.
  • She eats real people food. She loves pancakes, applesauce, chicken nuggets, crackers, cheerios, yogurt, cereal bars, and grill cheese. She had no problem switching from formula to milk.
  • She had her one year check up. She weighs 22 pounds and is 29 3/4 inches long. She hates shots and it takes two men and two woman to hold her down to draw blood. Not fun!
  • She cried when Papa left the other day. (Your welcome Dad) It was the first time she has ever done that!
  • She loves to sniff her blanket. She also loves to share sniffs.
  • She still loves Yo Gabba Gabba. She also does "Biz's Beat of the Day", but we call it "Sofia's Beat of the Day". Hilarious!

I have been getting ready for Sofia's BIG Birthday party, looking through old pictures, and it is amazing to me how much she has changed in the last three months. It seems that she has grown from a baby to a little toddler overnight!

We stayed home with our Teething almost one year old...She was up most of the night...Fussy...When she wasn't crying and fussy Charlie and I finally watched the movie "The Hangover" Hilarious!
But, there is no where else I would rather have been!!!

My sister asked me to babysit her girls for a few hours....Sure No problem!! Sofia loves spending time with her cousins. And I love watching the three of them play together.
I believe I mentioned before that Bella and Livvie got a puppy named Lucky for Christmas. Let's just say the few hours felt like an entire day with three kids and one puppy!
The best part was when I noticed the dog pooped on the carpet. I went over to clean it up, and apparently didn't see a little nugget, and stepped right in it! At the same time Livvie ran over to show me where I missed....and she also stepped in the dog poop. Did I mention we were both barefoot??? I put Bella in charge of Lucky and Sofia, scooped up Livvie and hopped to the bathroom on one foot. When Livvie and I were done cleaning our feet, Bella was taking pictures of Sofia on a beanbag holding Lucky. Bella said, "Look Aunt Becky I took a bunch of pictures." I literally have 80 pictures just like this.......

I have never been so happy to see my sister in my life, when she walked in the front door.

Sofia's Favorite Gift from Santa...

Dear Santa,

Thank you for all of my presents. My favorite toy was the princess car.

I get to ride it around the neighborhood...
And it makes really fun noises and plays great music.

Now, is there something you can do about mommy taking all these pictures???

Love, Sofia
