I feel like I have spent the better part of the past two years in awe of this little girl. She is feisty, independent and smart as a whip. She talks non-stop and there is little that we don't understand. She is loving and kind, but has a bit of a mean streak. She loves her family (and she tells us this daily). She has recently started saying "I don't like Mommy (or Daddy) anymore!" when she is disciplined. She does not like to be told "no" and really does not like to go to time-out. She knows her ABC's, can count to 14 and can recognize just about every letter of the alphabet. She loves to sing and dance. Most days, she prefers to just stay home and play with her toys. She could probably eat her weight in popcorn, yogurt and pretzels. She loves grapes and peas. I just adore this little girl. And no matter how many tantrums she throws in a single day, it all goes away when she wraps her little arms around my neck and says "I love you so much, Mommy." There's nothing in the world that can compare to that.
And these two....
It's so amazing to watch this monster of a cat interact with Sophie. Boomer doesn't like anyone other than me and Danny. He lets Sophie chase him all around the house, pull his tail, yell in his face, and more. He gets mad. He swats at her, but he doesn't bite or scratch her - which he does to most people when they just try to pet him. He lets Sophie hug him, kiss him and use him as a pillow. Animals are so interesting and Boomer has not let us down.
She loves these bunny ears. This is just Sophie being Sophie.
Did I mention she likes to "play" with the cat?
