Sophie is one happy kid. Now, I'm not trying to fool the world into thinking that she's all smiles and chuckles with not a drop of temper (believe me, the whole "fiery redhead" myth will not be dispelled by her) but she's got a smile on her face and an easy laugh most of the time. She's just so into whatever we're doing, whether its washing vegetables for dinner, working on a project or (more often than not) playing some creative imagination game where we're being bunnies... she really seems to be enjoying all the experiences that life has to offer. A good example - Sophie walking to a restaurant with her cousins Brandon and Courtney. They're not doing anything in particular, not playing a funny game or telling stories... they're just together, and that togetherness is so wonderful to Sophie that her smile lights up the whole parking lot. I hope she keeps finding joy in those little things... it's such a beautiful gift.
