Happy New Year! Merry Christmas!

Sofia is 4 months and 2 weeks old

Well the holidays sure went by quickly!!  It was, by far, the best Christmas ever.  It proved that gifts are not required to make the holidays special because all we needed or wanted was our little baby girl.  She was showered with gifts and it was a joyful time for everyone.

Not to complain, but the only thing is that everyone bought her clothes. And I know how much fun it is to buy girl clothes, but baby girl has no toys!  It's weird that I'm going to have to go out and get her toys - it just seems like something that you usually get too much of.  Good thing is that it means I can get what we want and not go overboard.  She also got no DVDs and only a couple books.  Seems crazy to buy that stuff, but I guess I'm going to have to!

She starts with her babysitter tomorrow.  I'm really not that nervous.  I might feel differently if I had to drop her off, but i get to pick her up.  We couldn't trust Doris more and are confident that Sofia will love her and will love being there.

In her Christmas dress!  She didn't even mind the hat.  She looked sooo precious!  My aunt jumped up and down when she saw her.

New Year's was very low key.  In fact I was asleep by 10:30.  Russ and I were both fighting terrible colds (thank goodness Sofia hasn't gotten it yet).  New Years Day was fun, we visited with lots of friends.

Life sure is good with that little girl around.  And i thought life was pretty great before!  If things get any better, I might just explode.


  1. Oh my cuteness! She is adorable in that dress.
    Happy New Year! I'm so glad your life is filled with so much joy!

  2. I just can't imagine how insanely immeasureable your happiness is considering where you were the past 5 years. Seeing Sofias face/pictures always brings a smile to my face, knowing what it took to arrive here, to this day, so awesome! Thanks for always being a source of inspiration even when it feels like it's never going to happen. xoxoxoxoxox

  3. OMG that dress and hat are so precious on her!! I just love it. I'm pretty sure that's the cutest Christmas outfit I have ever seen! =) I love her chubby cheeks, too. My twins have those cheeks and I am always kissing all over them haha.

  4. I have searched everywhere for a dress and hat combo to fit my daughter who'll be 10 months old this christmas....I love that one!! Where in the world did you find it? Your daughter is adorable btw!
