Sofia will be one and a half on Friday! So of course we have been preparing for the big girl transformation. Today we went and got her hair cut, and then we went and picked out a big girl potty (we wrapped it up and are going to give it to her for her 1/2 birthday!). So here are a couple of picks of the hair cut.

The before!

More before, notice the shaggy bang look

Christy Anne cutting her hair, she was wonderful!

The after! What a big, and beautiful girl!

More after, this time with a big girl clip:)

The good, the bad and the ugly

I know, I know, it has been awhile since my last post. Here is a recap of the last month, and an explanation of our very busy Dec/Jan.

• The first three weeks of December Sofia had double ear infections, yet again!
• Sofia had surgery to put tubes in both ears to help her to stay well, and hopefully NO MORE ear infections!
• Chad’s family came in town!
• Chad’s graduation!
• One day later fly to Tyler!
• Christmas in Tyler with family. It was a great Christmas, very relaxed and wonderful.
• Came home to a violent case of the stomach flu, or food poisoning we still aren’t sure which. Chad and I finally got a night out by our selves to the ER..ha, ha, ha:)

So as you can see we have been busy good, and busy bad...I promise to be better about posting. I have missed such things as Sofia's first braid, lining up babies yet again and again, stuffing babies down her shirt (she got to see Aunt Karen with a baby in her belly), singing any song that she hears especially her favorite "Sherry Baby," by Frankie Valli. But don't worry I will start posting these as soon as I can:)

But to hold you over here are a couple of cute pics

At the Tyler Zoo with Cousin Anne, in matching dresses:)

Celebrating graduation with daddy's hat.

First braid, can you believe that her hair is long enough for this!

All dressed up and no where to go.

Singing to PB, her favorite song "Sherry Baby," of course.
