I have been slacking a little bit here because I have been meaning to write this post for a about a week now, but things keep coming up (strep throat, food poisoning, among other things), So I have been a bit delayed, but this post, and my last post (about Cru) are my favorite posts of the year to write because I get to talk all about my favorite little people, and today is all about this girl!! 

She just happened to turn 4 years old on August 11, and what a great day it was! (minus the fact that Nick got Strep throat that day) She got to have a fun birthday water party in our backyard with lots of kids and she loved every minute of it!

Let me tell you a little bit about Sophie. And then I will let her tell you a little bit more about herself.

Sophie is at such a great age right now. I am loving 4 years old! She is getting big enough to do things on her own but still needs me, which I like! 
She is very sweet, a great helper, an awesome big sister, she is very funny with a great sense of humor, and is my little buddy. 

She, of course, still has her moments of drama, and is about as stubborn as they come. She is incredibly girly, and loves anything and everything that you can imagine a girly girl liking. Although, she still likes to play cars and basketball and things like that with Cru.

She also LOVES animals!  Her and I are very unsuccessfully trying to talk Nick into letting us get a dog. I don't think its ever going to happen.
Sophie and Carly (my Grandma's dog)

Sophie is very smart, and still really loves to draw and paint, and dance! She has gotten really good at writing her name, and so now she signs everything she draws. She is starting Pre-school this coming Tuesday, and cannot wait to start. She is going to do great!
She really is a wonderful little girl who we love SO much! I feel like I could go on for a really long time about her, but I won't. Just know that we feel so lucky and blessed to have her as part of our family.

Now I will let her tell you about herself, here is how it works: I ask these 27 questions (I did these same questions last year) and she will answer them, and I will type her answer. I also have a couple videos of the actual interview after the questions if you would like to watch her answer them instead of just reading it. (its much better than just reading them if you ask me!)
