Well we went to see Santa.  We watched Santa.  We talked to Santa from a distance.  When it was time to sit on his lap…. she just would do it.  It turned into a family photo this year.  On the up side she did however tell him that she wanted a big pink car!!  YAY!

Sophia’s 3 Year Stats


Height: 37 inches

weight: 28 lbs 8 oz

Sophia at 3 years old you:

-wear 2T and 3T clothes and a size 8 or 9 shoe

-sleep through the night for about 10 hours and take a nap anywhere from 2-4 hours

-started school for the first time, only to stay home with mommy and your new little brother, and you are about to start another new school at the end of January

-love to eat yogurts, cheese and crackers, ham and cheese lunchables, Quaker oats cereal, flavored water, McDonald’s chicken nuggets (with the breading peeled off,) Taco Bueno (chips n queso and chicken muchacos,) Starburst, PEZ, and Candy Corns (you finally finished them all off and you want to buy more but we have to wait until Halloween)

-LOVE LOVE LOVE to read books, you own a ton and you love going to the library to check out more

-know your ABC’s and can count to about 12 or 13 on your own

-love doing puzzles, playing with your baby Twinkle Toes, and your baby Rapunzel (Tangled is your favorite movie right now)

-love changing your clothes and picking them out yourself

-have just recently gotten into playing dress up and having dance parties!

-playing with your babies and changing their diapers

-sing You Are My Sunshine, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Jesus Loves Me every night

-tell me “it’s fine Mommy” when we disagree on something or I ask you to do something that you don’t want to do, when we have differing opinions, or when Mommy gets upset about something… you are so sweet and precious… making everything better

-love being a big sister to Jack… you love helping pick out his clothes, change his diaper, bring him toys, hold his bottle (when he gets one), bathe him, and hold his while singing him songs

You still seem to amaze me everyday.  You are a toddler going on a beautiful little girl full of life, love, and laughter with a big, warm heart and blossoming personality.  One of my best times of the day is when you wake up and want to cuddle in your bed and when you go to bed and tell me, “Mommy, I love you so much!”

I love you more than the sun is bright!! Bunches xoxo

Happy 3rd Birthday

This year we had Sophia’s 3rd birthday celebration at Chuck E Cheese!  I just knew after having sweet little brother just a month ago that I would not want to host a birthday party at the house.  It was super easy and so much fun.  We just had family and close friends attend… and we still had about 3o people, but only about 9 kiddos.  Sophia was so excited to have her party at Chuck E Cheese.  It was a great decision. I can’t believe my little girl is THREE!!
