Sophie Turns Three

It was a day filled with fun to the very last minute.  She slept with a card she received in the mail from her great-grandmother, and it was the first thing she opened the morning of her third birthday.  

Then, she asked for a biscuit and jelly for her birthday breakfast before we headed out to brand a few calves with the Vogts.

After that...it was on to Elley's house for a day of fun!

Even this little guy was living it up.

We played in the water, enjoyed the swings, had a picnic and even went fishing.

Augustine got a little scared when he was reeling it in...

Dad to the rescue!

Sophie got her gear and headed to the pond to join in.

She got a little hungry along the way.

Teresa caught one, too!

Peter, too!  I think he was perfectly named.

What's a day without a few cartoons?!

Then, it was time for the birthday party!

I thought I was buying lipgloss as party favors for the girls...I think it might have been lipstick instead.

She got the sweetest book about making an apple pie and all of the supplies to actually do so!

She swears you don't wear clothes under aprons.

Sweet Peter helped her with all of her gifts.

Then, it was off to adventure a bit.

Sophie, what a fun little girl you are!  For some reason, in my mind, you've been three for so long. Maybe it's the way we have conversations, or all of your little expressions, or how you take care of your siblings.  You are Sophie or Sophiepilla (as you tell everyone).  You love your baby Lily and cooking with Momma.  You are as tough as your brothers, but you love to be girly, too.  You love to brush my hair, bake anything and sing songs instead of napping with your favorite being the one you made up - the words "I don't know" on repeat.  You love Life cereal, hamburgers with mustard only, baked oatmeal and almost any treat.  Pink is your favorite color, and you are up for anything when it comes to daily life.  You loooooove your daddy and are one of his best helpers.  You have brought so much joy to our every day.  We love you sweet Sophie!
