Eight!
(if you're looking for the giveaway post, click here)

My sweet little girl turned eight yesterday.

Dear Sophie,

It seems like just yesterday we brought you home, so tiny and frail, not quite six pounds, but with a bright tuft of red hair atop your head. We knew we had trouble on our hands! ;)

It's been an utter pleasure seeing you grow to such heights (literally... you'll be passing me in no time!) It's a good thing you got your daddy's genes in that department. And I've so enjoyed seeing your personality blossom from rambunctious toddler into a reserved young lady with great values and dreams.

Given the recent events in my own life I promise to cherish every day with you and your sister even more than before. I truly cannot wait to see what the future brings for you!

You are creative, thoughtful, generous, loving and kind.

May all your dreams come true, my sweet girl!

  6. Happy Birthday Sophie (even if you don't know us) ... I hope you had a brilliant birthday!

    Patty ... you did well in "producing" her ... she is already a pretty girl, so I fear for you and your husband that she might be in big trouble, turning into a heartbreaker ;)

    Best wishes!!

  7. Thank you all for the well wishes. Sophie had a great day (even after her grand celebration at Great Wolf Lodge last week!)

    Tracie & Renae ... I finally made the "giant cupcake" she's been pleading for for AGES! It wasn't so giant after all... more like "medium-ish" but she loved it and that's all that matters!

    Tracey... you hit the nail on the head. She is not crazy about pictures. Not like her little sis who is always trying to steal the spotlight.

    Simone... thank you, sweetie! We fear that every day! ;)
