on the move

and more homework!

These days Sofia is so busy. She is always on the move. She has so much to do- all the time. She is up and down the stairs, all around the house, all day long. Its really very funny to just sit back and watch her in action. Not only is she always in motion, but she is always yacking. Erik says its a girl thing and he may be right.She has this serious look on her face like she is totally focused on what she is doing. She cracks me up.
Hektor and I call her hurricane Sofia.

Keeping ME in line

We are very routine around here, just ask my mom. I think it freaks her out a!. We wake up 6:30 am, put fresh diapers on the babies,eat breakfast, say good bye to daddy, put on play clothes, load up the babies in the stroller, head out for a jog, come home, bathe babies, put on clean clothes, put them down for morning nap, have lunch, play all afternoon, go down for second nap around 445, wake up when daddy gets home 5:45, eat dinner, play some more, go to bed by 7:30-8 at the latest.( This is mostly Sofia's routine. Hektor is still kind of different every day. )

Well today I was really tired. Hektor woke up early today 5:05 am. And Sofia woke up soon after cause she could hear him. So I thought no biggie we will wake up, skip morning jog, take it easy, and MAYBE take a nap, hopefully they are asleep at the same time. Well at 830 Sofia is putting on her shoes. I thought "oh shes so cute". Then a little while after shes standing at the side door ready to go (she never got her shoes on though). Eventually shes at the door banging and yelling, she really wanted to go out. So I thought okkkkk, we will go for a short walk. So I strap them in the stroller, pack up their bottles. We start walking, we get to the corner and Sofia starts fussing and she kept turning around looking at me. So I thought to myself she wants me to jog. So I started to pick up the pace and jog and sure enough she was fine. So now shes the one keeping me on schedule.

Here they are this morning after our jog...happy campers!

Sofia's 15 months old!

Sofia Sofia Sofia. I think she still feels like the spotlight is on her around here. She hardly notices the baby unless he is crying. She does still have the spotlight somewhat since she has so much personality. It is just very different attention than what Hektor gets.

At 15 moths Sofia...

*is a GREAT big sister. she brings me his bottle and paci when he cries and sometimes tries to stick it in his mouth and or nose. she rocks him when hes in the car seat (sometimes too rough). She pushes him in his swing. she is very sweet!

*has 8 teeth. 5 on bottom 3 on top. shes getting the 4th on top but hasn't cut yet.

*she is back to eating mushy baby food. im not sure if her gums are super sensitive but we are still on puree stuff 80 % of the time. every once and a while i can get her to eat some solids in tiny pieces. she went through a period of time when she was only drinking bottles she was in so much pain. we had a few secret trips to mcdonalds to get her some fries...don't tell daddy!

* is in the phase were she takes off her diaper. im not sure if its a sign shes ready to train. we got her a potty but right now i don't have time to actually train her.

*she loves remotes and cell phones

*hasn't had a play date in a while but she does get to go to baby gym with me about 3 days a week so thats play time for her.

*she talks a lot. she says lots of words now, and can repeat most things too. she says cat, cute,ball, momma, squirrel, bath, baby, belly button on a daily basis.

* she only takes one nap a day now, which is a bummer for me but shes getting older now.


*she runs now..kinda, she is very uncoordinated...she got her first shiner this morning. she was trying to bring her walker downstairs and tumbled all the way down with it. but she was still holding onto it when she got to the bottom. shes tough and strong!

*she smiles all the time, and her eyes dance!

all in all she is happy and healthy and that makes me happy!
