Sophie's First Christmas!!

It is so much fun having a kid for Christmas. I know she didn't understand what was going on, but it was so much fun spoiling her, and watching her open presents (even though I pretty much unwrapped them all). Clint had to work, so we didn't open presents until about 8 at night. It didn't feel like Christmas for the first part of the day, because part of my family was missing (not the first time either). But later in the evening, me and Sophie went over to her Grandma and Grandpa Summers, then to my Grandma and Grandpa's house, to say hi. It started to feel more like Christmas. Then at 7:30 Clint got home..Merry Christmas to us! Sophie was napping, so Clint, my mom, my dad, and I opened our stockings. Then Clint couldn't wait anymore, so he went and got Sophie up. She loved all of the bows and pretty paper. She got a little overwhelmed with all of us takin pictures, and saying her name, and all of the presents. But she love it. She wanted to play with each toy when it was opened. But her favorite present was the sippy cup she got in her stocking..who knew :). It was a great Christmas! Sophie made it so much fun!

Spending Time

Instead of trying to catch up on the past 3 months, I am just going to start fresh now. We are so in love with our little peanut! Sophie is just the best present we could have ever asked for. I feel so blessed to be her mom. She is the easiest going, most happy baby ever. She loves it when her dad gets home from work. She will sit on his lap and watch what he is doing as long as we will let her. I feel so blessed to be able to stay at home with my baby. I have so much fun hanging out with her all day. And Clint is the best dad in the whole world. He is always kissing ad hugging her, not to mention holding her upside down by one leg and throwing her in the air. She absolutely loves him :). She loves rolling over and being able to move around a little bit more. Recently, we went in to check on her before we went to bed, and found her with her little bum in the cute! Every morning since then, whenever I go to get her up she is on her belly with her bum in the air. :)

3 Months Old

I can't even believe that my little peanut is 3 months old. I feel like she is so little, then I look back at pictures when she was born, and she is so big now! Where does the time go. She is so much fun!
Here are some of the things she does as a 3 month old:

*Sucks her thumb, and her fingers
*Loves standing up
*Giggled for the first time
*Constantly smiles
*Sleeps through the night!
*Loves sitting up (with help)
*Always making noises and 'talking'

I could never have imagined how amazing it is to be a mom. I love watching Clint be her dad, he is so wonderful at it, and she loves him so much!

Cancer Walk

One of our friend's little girls, Brinley, was diagnosed with cancer a week after her second birthday. She fought long and hard, and has beat cancer. CureSearch does a cancer walk every year to raise money for research to try and end childhood cancer. Though Brinley beat it, there are many children who aren't as lucky. We wanted to support Brinley and her family. Along with all of those other families with children who have lost their battle with cancer, who are fighting cancer, and who have beat it. Clint, my mom, Sophie, and I went to the CureSearch walk this year. It was really emotional and touching. I feel like there is so much more we could all be doing. Nothing about this disease is fair, espcially tiny children having to go through this. During the program before the walk, the released white balloons for all of those angels who have lost their fight. We were so blessed to be a part of this experience.

Thumb Sucker

Sophie has now mastered the art of sucking her thumb. At first she would put her thumb in her mouth and her ingers would cover her whole face. Then she figured out how to bend her fingers a little, but would poke her eyes. Then the other day I went to get her up for the day, and ta-da, she had figured it out. Now that is all she wants to do. She kept turning away from her food the other night to put her thumb in her mouth. She also loves shoving all of her fingers in her mouth at once. And sucking on her blanket or any loose clothing. She isn't too interested in toys yet. Also, she is talking so much lately, always making noise. And sleeping through the night, hallelujah!!nShe is so stinkin awesome, we can't get enough of her!!

Not a whole lot has gone on here lately. Sophie is now 10.5 weeks old. She is getting so big and smart every day. She smiles constantly, and is on the verge of laughing! She is such a happy and good baby. Every now and then we feed her with a bottle of pumped milk, and she has started putting her hands on the bottle like she is trying to hold it. Every time we go get her for the morning or get her up from her naps, she looks up at you and gives the biggest grins. It is the best thing ever! We love her so much and have so much fun with her. Clint likes to tease her already, so she is a very tolerant little girl.

Picnic Time

She is such a cheeser sometimes
Her new thing is standing up, and she loves it!
Already a daddy's girl. We have been wanting to have a picnic up the canyon since before I was pregnant, and we finally found time to. It was way fun, just the 3 of us.
Clint and Sophie were testing the water. It was so cute, when her toe would touch the water she would hurry and pull her foot up.

Chilled Out

We had a busy, fun day today. We were outside a lot, and when we got home Sophie was so hot and sweaty that I let her hangout in just her diaper. And boy does she love to be naked. I put a light blanket over her to make sure she didn't get too cold, and she kicked and kicked until it was all the way off of her. She is such a chill and active baby (if that is possible). She only gets cranky when she gets hungry. She is so awesome, we love her so much!!!

New Buds

Well it has been a while since I have blogged, but I figure now I have something more to blog about, I want to take another go at it. We got Rooster the week after we found out we were pregnant, and ever since then I have wondered how they would be together. Sophie is finally big enough for me to feel ok with Rooster licking her and being all hairy around her. The other night we took her outside to see how he would react to her. To our wonderful surprise he was very careful and she loved being outside! I think that as they get older they will be best buds!
