This post is all about my sweet Sophie Rae. Sophie is 19 months old now. She is so sweet and so crazy at the same time. She loves to give kisses and snuggles. She loves to smile for the camera. In fact, she will sit in her favorite picture taking spot (the ottoman) and say, "Cheese!" when she wants you to take a picture of her. She adores playing with her baby dolls. She holds them, rocks them in her arms, and says "shhh". She lays them down and covers them with a small blanket and says, "nap, nap". She will feed them with her spoon and bowl. Sophie also loves trying to keep up with her big brother and sister. She runs around the house along with them. She loves to bounce and jump. She will count, "one, two" and then do a big jump and land flat on her bottom. Sophie also loves her belly button. She calls it her "button". We are not sure how this fascination began, but she plays with her belly button like some babies suck their thumbs. She will pull up whatever dress or shirt she is wearing to reach her button. She has been playing with her button so much that it got red and puffy. So now we have to put ointment on it and make her wear onsies so that it can heal. Sophie know what she wants and gets very frustrated if she can not get it or do it herself. Sophie really enjoys going to the park and swinging and sliding. She asks for the park by saying "wheee" which of course means she wants to go down the slides and say "wheee". Sophie also loves our chickens and looking for rabbits in the yard. She calls them "rabbies".

Our story of loving and learning at home...
"Let them be little, 'cause they're only that way for a while. Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day. Let them cry, let them giggle; let them sleep in the middle, oh, let them be little."
