Sophia Rose Turns SIX

Dear Sophia,

Tomorrow (Saturday) you turn SIX. I can't believe how the past six years seems to have flown by yet when I look at your baby pictures, it seems so long ago. Time is funny in that way, I suppose. I still remember your full head of shocking black hair, chocolate brown, almost black eyes and the chubbiest cheeks that were best for smothering with kisses.

You may be small but like the saying goes, you pack a whole lotta punch in one small body. You are turning into quite the inquisitive, kind, curious, generous, and big hearted little lady. You tend to be shy and quiet around people you don't know and reserve your silly, spunky side for those who you trust and love. Likewise, you are cautious going into a new situation, you have to observe, check things out and make sure they're safe before you jump in.

Despite your more timid nature, you are a girl's girl. You love being around your friends and your favorite part of school is recess and gym. You keep to 2-4 close friends and love to dress up, and ask me if your outfit matches. You love being "fancy" but don't mind getting your hands and feet dirty. I can find you outside dressed to the max with a crown on and your hands in the dirt, digging for "treasure."

Everyday you amaze me with your insight into things I didn't have a clue you even had on your radar. Everyday I fall into your dark brown eyes.
Everyday you make me smile at your sassiness and sometimes dramatics
Everyday I fall more in love with you, even more than what I could ever imagine possible 
Everyday you melt my heart when I see you protect and love on your baby sister

So, today we celebrate YOU my love and hope you know just how special and loved you are today and everyday!



(She asked me just the other day if she should start calling me mom... my heart about broke. I told her she can call me whatever she wants to call me- she said, "Ok, I'll still call you Mommy."
