Sophie is 6 months old today! ...and cuter than ever! Paul has noted that some babies' "relaxed" expression is poutiness, but Sophie's general expression seems to be wonder. She is always looking, smiling, interested in her surroundings. Paul got me a bookmark last year for my birthday that said "Wisdom begins in wonder" and it's true - Sophia means "wisdom" and she's always curious about her world - every day seems to bring a new discovery for her or a new thing for her to delight in and squeal joyously about. I hope that never changes for her. Her newest things:
  • grabbing the spoon and trying to feed herself - good eye-hand coordination!
  • rolling over (and over and over... we don't worry about "tummy time" any more)
  • putting her toes in her mouth
  • sitting up by herself and not doing too bad a job of it
  • picking out two notes on the piano that GO TOGETHER (do we have a musical genius on our hands, or what?)
  • playing with crayons (okay, so we have to make sure she doesn't eat them, but she does make a mark here and there)
  • mimicing sounds we make
  • growing those two adorable little teeth and biting hard on everything in sight
She's the neatest little person we've ever met and our lives are so much richer for it! Can't wait to see what the next 6 months will bring...
