In case you didn't know

  • she is now going by the name victoria. not sure why, but we are going with it. today when i picked her up from pre-school the teachers sang 'goodbye victoria.' she's taking it very seriously.
  • she is an honorary member of our pto. she goes to every meeting and today she was helping us count tickets for the carnival. the ladies called her victoria too.
  • she is allergic to praying mantises. we had one outside our front door for 4 days. the kids named him george. but sofia, hmm victoria, told us all she was allergic to it.
  • she will be snow white for halloween. even if she tells you she will be a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, SHE'S GOING TO BE SNOW WHITE!!  i already have the costume.
  • she is addicted to the fresh beat band.  and we have every show on our dvr.
  • we think she has a crush on thomas, a boy at school.  she talks about him all the time.  and he chases her on the playground.  it must be love.
  • she's been getting out of bed in the middle of the night.  i wish i was awake enough to send her back to bed, but she usually ends up in ours.
  • she can take a pretty good picture with my camera.  can't wait to give her her christmas present.
  • she will most likely go to kindergarten next year.  so i am enjoying this time alone with her.
  • she picked the perfect pumpkin at the patch the other day.  perfect.
  • she always says thank you and i love you.  and when she's in trouble she remembers to tell me i am the bestest mom ever!  thanks lovey.
having fun here.  spending our time on the halloween carnival, book reports, spanish projects, homemade halloween costumes, taking the most amazing online class by my favorite life artist and swim meets, two medals last week, one was for first place. 

sorry i haven't been updating.  but i will try.  have a good weekend.

how did this happen

i know that we are behind on our travel update.  bobby started a post and just hasn't had a chance to finish it.  we will. 

but i wanted to post something today to celebrate sofia's birthday.  i truly cannot believe that she is 4.  this seems like such a momentous birthday.  she has moved out of the baby and toddler stages and is a full blown little girl.  we are celebrating her birthday at school with cupcakes and pep-che-crack, pepperoni, cheese and crackers.  (our friend the fraziers introduced us to that term.)  bobby took the day off and we are taking her to lunch.  and then our family is coming over for dinner and a pink party.  really looking forward to putting it all together.

i love this little girl.  she made my dream of having a little girl come true.  she is loved by her brothers, adored by her father and spoiled by her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.  but i have a deep love for her.  she is my 'lovey'.  she takes care of me. she is my lunch mate.  she is my shopping partner.  the other day she said, mom i want to go to the mall.  i was so proud.  no really.

i wish her the happiest birthday a little girl could have.  may it be full of surprises and  PINK!
