Magnificent Sophi

I was looking at pictures and thinking of how much Sophi has changed this year. She came to us quiet and serious, so much like her referral photo:

I remember so clearly the moment she was handed over to me, all bundled up in her big yellow coat and screaming in protest about being put in my arms. My heart ached for her sadness, and I longed for her to know just how much I loved her, and that she was finally home.

Well, take a look at her now!!

These two are so sweet together. Usually.

Not sure the story behind this one-- I just found it on the camera.

I often walk into the kitchen to find Sophi has helped herself to "breakfast."

Sophi isn't always this messy, but sometimes she just likes to play with her food. I think this time she decided to forego the fork and just dump it out on the table and dive in head first!

Helping herself to breakfast again.

Graci opened the pantry door to find this.

Disclaimer: the pantry isn't usually so full of junk! This was after company and parties.

Sophi likes to help clean, and she is very resourceful in figuring out how to help!

Our little sausage.

Happy 8 months home, baby girl! You are sooooo loved!!

And, these are obviously not of Sophi. I just found them on the computer and thought they were funny. I'm not sure the story behind the bow. (:
