Happy 2nd Birthday Sophia!

We absolutely cannot believe that our darling niece, Sophia, is two years old! It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating her first birthday, and now suddenly another whole year has passed and she is growing into such a big girl! Unfortunately we committed to going to White Pass a few months ago before realizing that Sophia's birthday party would probably be the same weekend, so we were incredibly sad that we had to miss her birthday party.

We wanted to get her something special and fun for her birthday, so I did a lot of research and found the Fisher-Price Little People Zoo Talkers Animal Sounds Zoo, an interactive learning toy for kids from one-and-a-half to five years old. It was very highly rated and we adore the idea of passing on Stew's love of animals, so it seemed like the perfect gift. Nichole and Mom sent us some adorable pictures of Sophia opening and playing with it at the party, and she seems to really like it, so score for us! Now I desperately want to go down and play with her...

We also included four board books about hippos by Sandra Boynton, because we still love to give Sophia hippo stuff whenever possible... it helps give her something to relate to us since we can't see her nearly as often as we would like. And Nichole sent me a text later that day saying she told Sophia to read a book and she chose one of the new hippo books... double score!

I just can't get over this adorable face!

Happy birthday Sophia, we love you so much!!
