Catching Up

I cannot believe that summer is coming to an end. Where did it go? In July my little brother came for a visit. It was a short visit but so nice having him here...and for once I got to celebrate his birthday with him!

In early August we
hit the Shuswap Lake with Jeff's mom, step dad, and his sister and her family. It was fun and so nice to get away.

Sophia turned 15 months on August 13. With that came longer sleep at nights (8 pm to 7:30 am!), longer naps (sometimes 3 hours long!), and a bunch of new words. Her new words this month are Papa, cat, Eddie (the cat), book and many others that I can't remember at the moment.

It's been fun watching her grow these past few weeks because she's just suddenly blossomed. She loves trying to keep up with her big cousin Gavin (he's 3.5) and when we go to the Play Palace she can jump in the jumpy castle, throw the ball into the hoop, go up and down the big kids slide and even stand her own ground against the bullies that tell her no! When she needs quiet time she'll sit in her chair next to her book shelf and read her books and play with her sticker book. She is truly our little angel and makes life so much more fun!
