Yesterday was Sophia's second birthday!
Our baby girl is turning into such a sassy little lady and we are so happy that she is part of our family. Even though some days she gives new meaning to "the terrible twos", she is also very loving, fun and happy, and she is constantly doing things that make us laugh.
We love you sweet Sophia!
It was a very low key day, I spent a lot of time decorating the cake, and we let her open presents throughout the day. She got books from Grandma Gail, play dough, crayons and drawing paper, and a toy barn and farm animals.
Whenever I said "Happy birthday Sophia," she responded, "Happy dappy, Mom!"
I decorated a Tinkerbell cake for her this year.
She blew out the candles all by herself.
And had the first bite of cake.
Even though we gave Richie some gifts so he wouldn't feel left out . . .
. . . this is how he felt most of the day.
He was pretty jealous of all the attention Sophia got, and he had a difficult day. It is hard not to feel any mommy guilt about that, but I suppose he is going to have to learn that he can't always be the center of attention. It was a good day and we were happy to celebrate our little girl. Next year I think we will try to make the day even more fun and special, somehow.
