{A Letter to Sophia}

Sophia, you are another month older. I feel as if we were JUST celebrating your second birthday. I haven't done a monthly post for you in a while & thought I was going to stop with them when you turned two but I think I'd regret doing it. I enjoy seeing how much you've changed & what you've been up to each month.

It was so hard to get these pictures of you but I think they turned out good. Here lately you hate getting your pictures taken and I pretty much have to bribe you with saying I'll get you a piece of candy if you just sit and smile. I can't wait for you to actually want to get your pictures taken because mommy loves taking them of you.

You have grown so much & you are so fun to be around. Yes, you have your tantrums and there are days when I am extremely exhausted at the end of the day, but you are honestly the sweetest girl. You are extra sweet to me. We'll be laying in bed & you'll just say out of no where, "I love you Mommy". You actually say it a lot during the day & it's my favorite. I've heard it before but hearing it from you is extra special. 

We still sleep together every night. We will sleep together as long as you'd like, Sophia. Being able to see you before I go to sleep and wake up to you is exactly what mommy needs. The other night your grandparents were going to keep you, well I ended up having to come back and get you because you kept asking for me and kept saying "Mommy's house", "Mommy Na-Night". I didn't mind at all.

You LOVE to talk and you know so many words/sentences. I'm always surprised when I hear you say something new. And most of the time the stuff you say always makes me laugh. You say some of the funniest stuff. I'm thinking daycare is where you learn most of it. I'm going to start writing down the stuff you stay and post them on here so I have a way of remembering them. 

You also love to dance and sing. Your songs may not have any real words but I'll catch some in there between the jabbers. You have one where you sing about me and I always ask you to sing it again, and again. You still have some funny dance moves. You've always loved to dance since you were a baby. I'm thinking dance classes will be in your future.

You are in size 2T pants and 3T tops. The pants are still a little big on you. We had to start wearing 3T because your long torso were making the 2T's look short on you. Your feet are still very small. You are in a size 6 and can fit into some size 7's. You have a ton of clothes and dressing you up is probably one of my favorite things to do.

You love to play with baby dolls and with your kitchen set BUT you don't play for long periods of time. You'll play for a couple minutes and then want to come sit right by me and see what I'm up to. This is at home though. At daycare I hear you play ALL the time. You also love to paint & color. 

You are still in diapers. You were doing so good with using the potty and then you just stopped so we are going to try and get back to that. You also still take a binky and bottle at night before you go to sleep. I hate this but you will scream non stop until you get it. It's rough. 

Right now you are taking about an hr and a half nap at daycare but on the weekends when you're here with me the naps are almost 3 hrs.. and I almost always take them with you. 

So this letter & update ended up being pretty lengthy. I guess that's what happens when I go a couple months without doing it. 

Sophia, I love you & your perfect, sweet personality. I can't wait to watch you learn more and grow into the beautiful little girl you are already turning into. You are mommy's princess & my whole world.
