We had the pleasure of having the Ardeleans visit us for Memorial Day. it was a great opportunity for Sofia and Max to get go know each other better. She was really good about playing and sharing toys, trying to feed Max and give him lots of hugs and kisses. Lets hope the last two won’t come to hunt her in the future …. 🙂
Yesterday was Sofias’ 11 months birthday – if such a thing exists 🙂
While we did not do anything extra special, Sofia did manage two major accomplishments: she finally learned how to climb out of bed – feet first :). Mommy’s been trainig her for the last few months. It finally caught on.
And the second accomplishment, she learned how to imitate a cow 🙂 so when I ask her “Sofia, cum face vaca? She responds: mooooooo!”
Oh, the joys of watching your baby grow ……
Today we went to see Pike Place, an open air market in downtown Seattle. We had a great brunch at Etta’s, then we walked around the market looking at all the flowers, produce, meats, souvenirs and sidewalk performers, got some great Russian pastries for dessert and coffee from the first Starbucks ever opened, then we hang out on the lawn, by the water watching the birds and the people.
All in all, a great day!
On Sunday, Sofia mommy and daddy traveled to Seattle for daddy’s work. We will be here for about 2 months.
This was Sofia’s first trip in an airplane.
She enjoyed most of it, with the exception of the landing, when her ears started popping.
During the flight, she read the emegency instructions, played with puffy and pinky, ate pufuleti, took a nap, made a few friends and walked around with daddy.
We eventually made it to Seattle, tired and hungry, but safe.
This past Sunday, Sofia got her first cold. Mommy was very upset about it, she wished she could take Sofia’s cold away … But no such luck.
Her little nose is runny, and at night it gets stuffy which makes it hard for her to breathe.
But she’s a good trooper during the day, you wouldn’t say she’s sick unless mommy tries to clean her nose, and then she protests.
Mommy hope and prayer is that the cold goes away before our move to Seattle!
A few weeks ago, we took Sofia at the swimming pool for the first time. It had to be an indoor one, since the weather in Michigan is what it is, but she had fun nonetheless. Here are a few snapshots of the event.
During our outing this past weekend at Partridge Creek, we stopped by the play area so that Sofia can watch the kids play. But she wasn’t content with just watching, she wanted to join in. So daddy took her for a walk on the green peas, where some boys became really interested in her. She’s gonna be a heart-breaker some day ….
