She's 6 today

My baby princess turns 6 today.  Where did the time go?
I remember when she joined us..the little girl in a pack of boys.

Her big brother wasn't thrilled at first but you can see he started loving her as much as the rest of us.

They have been inseparable since..though they may fight they are best buddies and continue to be close in all things.

You have experienced so many firsts too:

your first bike race.

first trip to the dentist.

 first 4th of July bike parade.

 your first attempt at cutting your own bangs :(

your first fish.

 you started dance.

 you began soccer - and rock at it.

 you learned how to roller blade.

you got your first puppy - Boone. 

you learned how to boogie board. 

and you went to kindergarten.

You have defined your own fashion sense..sometimes way before it's time sometimes something from another time all together.  But always - you.

 But one thing that has never changed is your need to be a "little mama" .  You are a sweet, caring little girl.
And I love you so much.  I thank God everyday for giving me a little girl- someone who is always my shadow and brings so much fun and sunshine into my life.
Thanks for being my wonderful daughter.
Happy Birthday Sophie.

  3. She's too cute! I feel for her growing up surrounded by boys. I've often wondered what that would be like if we had a girl. I'm sure you have a lot of fun with her. Happy Birthday, Sophie! Love her name, too. :)

  4. She is more than beautiful! Thank you for sharing- warmed my heart such a wonderful display of love!

  5. How can one post make feel like laughing and crying at the same time? I was so happy the day she was born and she brings even more happiness every time I see her. I often say to mom, what did we do before Sophie!? I can't wait to celebrate #6 with her. Thanks for the walk down memory lane. And give that girl a giant hug from me!!

  6. Oh Tammy...what a loving tribute to a true beauty!

    Happy, Happy Birthday Sophie!

  7. I miss that little stinker. She is joy, delight, soulful, silly, compassionate, loving, helpful, sincere,kind... I could go on and on...I have never met a child like her. I wonder how can someone be so very young be all those things and so much more? That is uniquely Sophie. Happy Birthday Girlfriend! I love you.
