Sophie turns 4

Hey friends! Some of you may remember that our second kiddo Sophia was lucky enough to be born on Martin's birthday, and that it happened last month on the 20th! Unfortunately that was the day we loaded the kids in the car and drove out of town to the Cancer institute, so Sophie and Martin definitely got the shaft as far as birthdays go. She never noticed or complaind of course, and we tried to include extra 'birthday' activities, candles, and even managed to pack a few presents for her to open at the hotel.
A few days before we made the trip though, she and I went out on a little date and had a birthday photoshoot- as is tradition. We explored around the hills a bit and found a waterfall, and I love that she was totally in her element while still looking like a china doll. I never got around to posting the photos on my blog tough since things have been so busy, so I had to share a few favorites as soon as I could.
Happy Belated Birthday to you, our sweet Sophie-girl! You have such a tender heart and are so special and loved, and every single day we think how lucky we are to be your parents. You have such a creative side and eye for detail, and it's such a wonderful thing to watch you explore and learn.
 
I can't wait to see how you grow this next year!
We love you to pieces big girl.
- love Mama

  12. These are just precious... and I usually don't use the word "precious," but that's what they are! (I can see now that I wasn't the only one who used that adjective, hehe.
