Up until now Sophie hated to try on shoes. I don't know why. She loves shoes. She is constantly wearing Adam's or mine. But take this girl to a store and force her to try some on and it gets ugly...quickly. The other day I had been to the mall and decided I really wanted some new shoes. We've been on a VERY strict budget since Paragon shut down, and mama just wanted some new shoes. I took Sophie with me and she had a FIT when I put the shoes on. She immediately took her shoes off and said "Sophie try...for Sophie". I let her try them on, she approved, and now they are mine. Cute huh?

I have wanted to buy one of these headbands for Sophie for FOREVER. I finally decided to get one and see if she would wear it. She is currently obsessed with regular headbands, but usually wears them over her forehead. I found one of these for $3 and decided it was worth the small investment. Adam is not a big fan of the flower, but I LOVE it...and so does Sophie.

This video is of Sophie performing her "elephant walk" for the actual elephants. She really wanted to go see them but has a hard time saying "elephant" so she got down on the ground and did her elephant walk to tell us what she wanted. I didn't have my video camera ready the first time, so I made her do it again once we got there! She learned this at ballet.

|More snacks please!|
|She ONLY did this because Nathan did...|

Whenever I am reading a book or magazine, Sophie has to have one too. She happens to love Reader's Digest. Reader's Digest reminds me of my Grandma Pegg, she always had them at her house! Maybe her love is genetic. Here she is with some light reading before bedtime.
Steven, Laura, Hailey, Nathan, Grand-Mommy, and Poppy all came to visit us in Franklin. We had so much fun. The highlight for Nathan was definitely fishing in the pond in our neighborhood. The highlight for me was watching Sophie play with her cousins. She loves Hailey...and she worships Nathan. At one point we were upstairs and Nathan said "Does anyone want to..." and before he finished his sentence Sophie raised her hand and said "I do". She wanted to do whatever he did and repeated everything he said. She's always loved playing with the older boys...hmmm....

Wendy and Jason FINALLY let us keep Josie overnight for a sleepover. We had a blast. We had pizza at Jet's and then made ice cream sundaes. After bath we watched a movie together. I looked over and saw Sophie laying on Josie's shoulder. SOOO cute.
Josie did great. She woke up about 4:00 am and was a bit confused as to where she was and why Sophie was in bed with her. I went upstairs to lay down with the girls. Sophie was wide awake, talking and singing. Sweet Josie was trying so hard to go back to sleep. After about 10 minutes of Sophie singing..."me, memememe, meeeee, meme, me, meeee", Josie sat up in bed, looked at me and said "Katie, she's STILL singing". I took Frank Sinatra Jr. to sleep with Daddy and Josie and I went back to sleep!

The Hamiltons were at our house for a cook-out and we discovered that Sophie really likes to sit in David's lap. I'm not sure how I feel about this, but it was very cute. Every time David wanted to get up, Sophie would stand up and let him out. When he came back she stood up again to let him sit down so she could sit in his lap.
