The youngest of all my girls.
Sofia Rose, as fun as her name.
She wanted her ears pierced for her birthday last week (she turned 8). I told the ear piercer lady that this was the last of my little girls to get their ears done. Another lady, that we’ve known for many years, was walking by and heard. She said, “yeah right. I’ll believe that when I see it.”
Who knows what God has planned.
We got Sofia when she was 6. Her birthday was a couple of months later. I told her she can’t turn 7 yet because I didn’t have a 6-year-old girl for long enough. She promised she’d be 6 for another year as long as she got cake and ice-cream and presents. We teased her about it again this year, but this year she insisted she really did need another real birthday.
My favorite girl ages are 6- and 7-years-old. Bittersweet our youngest girl is now 8.
Being the youngest girl, she tends to get somewhat bossy when playing with others. So she does spend quite a bit of time playing by herself. Tawny is the next girl closest in age to her, and she will be 12 this summer. I guess we do need to adopt at least one more girl in the 6- to 7-year-old range. Hmmm……
Sofia is what some may call a “girly-girl”. She prefers dresses and skirts to pants. Playing with dolls, Barbies, coloring, and having her hair done up.
She loves school, and if she isn’t doing school work she is playing school. Sofia is in 2nd grade but doing 3rd/4th grade math. She is picking up multiplications pretty quickly.
Sofia is also a cuddle bug. She still likes to sit in mine or Dave’s laps when watching TV. Holding our hands when walking thru the store.
She smiles …. a lot!
I’m thankful the Lord gave us another little little girl. Now I need to ask His opinion about another girl or two a bit, but not too much, younger than Sofia.
Have a blessed day,
