The Big One Continues

The sisters came to town on Saturday, so Sophie was finally given cake. Poor thing has been so deprived of sugar by her mean mommy until now! :) She definitely loved it. Josh and I got Sophie an aquarium, and it was a hit. Here are the highlights:

I made it myself - I was pretty proud of it because I'm not that crafty.

Cake is pretty much demolished

The Big One

Sophie says I am ONE!

Mommy and Sophie

Just so you can see her cute little birthday shirt, thanks, Lola

I am feeling awfully sentimental tonight as I write this so beware. I've been more than negligent in posting recently and so much has happened! Thanksgiving, our seventh wedding anniversary, and now Sophie's first birthday! Not only that, but this week marks six months since we met Sophie in Ethiopia. What a whirlwind it has been.

I literally cannot remember life without her. Much like my marriage... our daughter is now such a part of the fabric of us. I am in her and she is in me. It might as well have been six decades.

Yes, I'll post a picture of her eating cake, don't worry, that's still to come.
