Lovin the girl

We are just having a fun time with this sweet girl, she posed for this picture after handing me the camera.
She waits for dad to come home from work.

She took my apron from the drawer and put it on and then played peek-a-boo by holding it up to her face.

most boring writer ever- and a point to this post

When I read over my past blog posts I feel for everyone who reads my blog. I am not a good writer. I'm glad I didn't pursue my childhood dream of writing books because I don't think that would work out very well for me. I never quite know what to say- like take my last post, Sophie's birthday, I knew I needed to post something so I picked a couple pictures I liked and then had no idea what to say with them. Maybe I should have just said "Sophie turned 1" because in all actuality it doesn't really matter to very many people what we actually did on her birthday. So I'm sorry for always being such a boring author of this blog but unless I can convince Josh to ever submit input to this blog you will just have to bear with me and hopefully the pictures make up for it.

Anyway, I did have a reason for writing today. I just had such a relaxing day today. Sophie was sick and so Josh and I did a switch and church so he went to the first part and then came home and I went to the latter part where I taught my primary class of 4 year-olds, which actually went better than usual. I came home and Josh had done the dishes and folded the laundry. Then we just hung out, Josh and I took a nap, gave Sophie a bath, cuddled with her, and we ended off our night watching a Sesame Street video she got for her birthday. This seemed like one of her favorite parts, despite feeling awful she waved her arms around and tried to sing along. That girl loves to sing.

Someone had a birthday

Last week Sophie celebrated her 1st birthday. We had a great time. We celebrated a little the weekend before when we were with Sophie's Aunt Krista who shares a birthday with her. On Sophie's actual birthday we just had a good dinner and a cupcake. We took her out to a frozen yogurt place and she got a wonderful dairy-free pineapple sorbet and walked around the place like a little queen. She defiantly got spoiled from all her friends and family. We so enjoy having Sophie around. She makes us so happy.

Last night we took her out to Red Robin because both Sophie and I had free coupons for our birthdays. Sophie had her first time drinking from a straw and she did great. Also, she got a balloon on our way out and this morning she was reaching for it saying "ba-oon" it was soo soo cute.

crazy here

sorry I have been slow with posting but we have been pretty crazy here. A couple weeks ago my mom, brother, and sister came to visit for their spring break and we had a great time. The over last weekend we went down to Utah for General Conference and to see the rest of my family. We had a great time going to a conference session and having a little birthday party for Sophie and her birthday sharing aunt, but it was still a little bit stressful of a weekend because our car died and rather than try and figure a way to get it home and get it fixed we sold it and found other ways home. So now we are down to one car but that's ok, spring is almost here so hopefully I won't get too antsy here at home.
