Look at this face. Sophie’s special scrunch. I’ve been trying to capture it on camera all summer, and finally, here it is in all its glory.

Behold the milk dribble:

This baby makes us laugh every day.

She pushes the kitchen chairs across the room, cackling with every step.

She picks up a book, waddles over to me, turns around and backs into my lap with a plop. As in, read Mommy. Now.

When I blow my nose, she pretends to do the same. And whenever she nabs a tissue (or a five-foot-long stretch of toilet paper) she pretends to blow her nose.

She loves to show people her belly button. And she gives open-mouth kisses if you ask for one.

Her “run” is a quicker waddle with one arm flapping, like she’s pushing the air out of the way.

When Lily builds a block tower, Sophie knocks it over like it’s her job.

Wherever Lily is, Sophie wants to be. Which has become a little problematic for big sister, who likes her stuff JUST SO and has taken to shutting her bedroom door in Sophie’s face. But she doesn’t last long without little sis nearby. Two peas in a pod.

In the bath, Sophie likes to pour water on herself. And tip her head way down to try to drink from the tub. When I say “no,” she shakes her head with me.

When she hears the dishwasher or fridge door open, she comes running.

She just discovered stickers and loves to press them onto her legs. And onto mommy’s boobies.

If you chase her, she laughs maniacally, then stops running and braces herself to be tickled.

Sometimes she stands with both arms crossed at the wrist behind her back, lost in thought. Like a little old soul.

Armpit rolls, thigh rolls, neck rolls. I want to eat them all.

Pure sunshine, this baby.

We can’t get enough.

  1. Adorable! Your pictures really capture her personality. 🙂

  2. I feel like I know her through your words and photos. Which makes me a bit sad because I feel like everyone knew Madison through my blog and no one knows Hannah. I need to change that.

  3. I love her. I dream of a playdate with our kiddos.

  4. She is just toooooo cute for words xo

  5. Super cute!

  6. That face is awesome! You perfectly captured a 16 month old. I love when Jake gets a book and backs up into my lap.
