Sophia sings the A, B, C's

I know. She's brilliant!

I love how she stops at the end and says, "I no like that song." Funniest kid. Ever.

And thanks to Ben for taking such amazing photos. I'm having a heck of a time choose my favorites.

I know. I know.

It has been forever since I posted. So, without any further ado, new pics of Sophia from the pumpkin patch yesterday:

This thing is heavy!

Did you miss me??

Just realized it has been more than a month since my last post. Sorry!

I have good reason though. I recently started another blog that has been keeping me VERY busy. This one is a business venture though. And will (hopefully!) someday pay some bills. Check it out here and tell me what you think! HappyAppleOnline.blogspot.com

And, for all you Sophia lovers out there (ie. EVERYONE!), here are some new pics of the babe. Enjoy!

Busting a move at NKOTB at the MOA:

First Vikings game (thanks Auntie Jill for the tickets!):

I love Pronto Pups!:

utter cuteness (get it? utter? udder? And she's wearing a pig hat? I seriously crack myself up!):

Maple Grove Days 2008

Busy, busy weekend here!

On Thursday, we took Sophia to the parade again. (Here are pics from last year's parade. Look at how little she was!)

She had a blast playing with her friends Damon and Talan. Here are some pics-

Hanging out by the fence:

Nice sticker:

Looking at something interesting:

Saturday was the carnival. Most of the stuff was for bigger kids, but Sophia had fun running around and watching all the other kids.

Funny story about my little suburban baby. We took her through the petting zoo where she got to see a cow, a kangaroo(!), a goat, and even a turtle -- even though she refused to touch anything. (Notice the folded arms).

When we were leaving the petting zoo, Sophia started crying. I asked her what was wrong, and she said she wanted to go back to the "farm." Ha ha ha! Poor kid thought the petting zoo was a farm. Guess we need to take her to the country or something.

And here is a little video of Sophia busting a move at the street dance on Saturday night.

We finished up the evening with some ice cream. I have never seen Sophia eat something so fast before. She loved it! Notice her holding on to daddy's arm. She wasn't letting that cone get too far away.

She ate so much we thought she was going to be sick.

Saturday night she stayed up way too late for her first fireworks show. We all sat in the front yard (Nelly too!) and had a perfect view. We were far enough away that they weren't too loud. And Sophia loved them.

Sunday was the art fair. I don't have any photos, but we had fun. Sophia got to try out her monkey harness. I've heard horror stories about people making rude comments about kids on leashes, so we prepared ourselves. Lots of comments about the "monkey on her back" but nothing negative. And she loved the freedom it gave her. She had two hands free to get into trouble, but I knew she wasn't going to bolt into the crowd and get lost.
