Sophie turns 3!

Wow! Is August seriously almost over?! Where did it go? 
August is always a busy month for us but this month has really been crazy! 
However... I will write a post about our summer soon (hopefully!) 
Today is going to be about this little girl!

Yep that's right, she had a birthday and is now a big grown up 3 year old! 

I cannot believe that she is already 3. I know people say the time goes by fast but really though, it does!
Sophie really got a great birthday celebration this year. It was really more of a birthday week for her, and let me tell ya, she LOVED every minute of it.
She has been waiting for months, literally, for it and has been very excited, so we knew we wanted to make it special.
For Her actual birthday we were at the Barker Family reunion but that didn't stop us from having a little cake and ice cream for her (and presents too).  It also included an awesome fashion show, by all of the girls.

Then later that week my parents came bearing gifts for both of our kids (they weren't able to be here for either of their actual birthdays) 
Then later that same day we had a little party with Sophie's friends and a few cousins who were also able to come. It was so fun! We had a little water party and I think all the kids really enjoyed it.
 I wish I had pictures of it, but my camera was out of batteries for it, and I am still kicking myself for not getting some.

ANYWAYS.... I gave Sophie a little birthday Interview and it was pretty funny. So here it is, and by the way I am putting exactly what she said for the answer I just wish i had it on video because the way she says some of it is what makes it hilarious:

1. What is your favorite color? Pink
2. What is your favorite toy? The dolphin, you know mom, the one in the tub (i didn't even know she liked that toy)
3. What is your favorite show or movie? I love MULAN, Oh ya, and Old McStuffins (really called Doc McStuffins its a show on the Disney channel)

favorite people in the entire world.
