How I Know She's Mine

Since the day she was born, the consensus has been almost unanimous that Sophie is her daddy's baby. Most people thought she looked just like her daddy, and figured there's no way she got her mellow temperament from me. But as time goes by, I'm beginning to suspect (and hope) that she may be more of her mommy's baby than originally thought. Here are a few reasons why she may be my baby after all:

1) She loooovvvves her blankie. And she sometimes twists it between her fingers. I didn't know nervous habits were genetic.
2) She gets grumpy when it's past time for her to eat. Believe me, it's unpleasant.
3) She has hit most of her milestones around the same time I did: walking, talking, etc.
4) She has this patch of hair on the back of her head that will NOT lie flat. I seem to remember the same bed-head look in many of my baby pictures.
5) Her new trick is to go get the earpiece to my phone and ask to call someone. Now that's my kid. No wonder I don't have any minutes left.
6) Apparently I was a mellow, laid-back- and can you believe this -low-maintenance child.
So maybe I can claim her after all. Hopefully she doesn't inherit my sassy tongue or my athletic ability, that's why I married her daddy.

She is really growing and changing so fast! (And, by the way, her leg is fine. She is walking like normal and we'll go see the orthopedist on Thursday.) Her new favorite song is "Five Little Monkeys." When she wants to sing it, she hits herself on the head. Sounds a little mean of me to teach her that, but it's really, really cute. She is also really into her teddy bear "Mr. Bear." She likes to make sure that everbody gives him goodnight kisses. She also is sure to share her food and drink with him, too.

That's all I've got for tonight, and I promise that in my next post I will try to be "Sars" and not just "Sophie's Mom."

This is so sweet. My husband just told me about how he was listening to a song on the radio yesterday and it made him think about his girls and how much he loves them. What a great daddy. As you see though, they can be mamma's girls too. I just love this blog..thanks everyone.

Aside from the giving birth part, I'm glad to know you've found validation that she's yours. :)

And can I just say, FINALLY - you guys have posted. I've been checking back here for days with nothing new to read...

And my last random comment is that I love the Harry Potter counter in the corner. Not because I care when that book comes out (I know, probably sacrilege to mention on this blog) but because it is the same day as my 30th birthday and therefore fun to see how long until D-Day.
