Miss Independent

Sophie loves to put her little feet into our shoes and clomp around the house in them. She had a little help getting into these boots and then she found it extremely difficult to go anywhere in them, but she still looked much cuter in them than her Mama does.
Sophie is so independent, except for when she's not. We were in a room full of other kids this morning, and after watching the older ones play for a while, she was content to take her pillow over to one corner of the room and play around the piano by herself. She gets frustrated when she can't open something by herself and needs my help, and she often doesn't want something anymore if I've had to help her get it. But then she still has a hard time playing at home unless me or Joseph are playing right there with her, giving her our undivided attention. She's especially attached to Daddy these days. I loved when I got to quit nursing until I realized how much I'd miss getting to be close to my baby who rarely ever wants to be held or cuddled anymore. She used to be such a Mama's girl, but she's very happy if it's Daddy who comes in to get her in the morning or feed her or read to her these days. Ah well, I guess that's why we have more babies, right? I know they'll all go through different phases, I just hope none of them get tired of me permanently. :)

I can totally relate to that. Paige was the same way with me until I stopped nursing her. Now, she is completely Daddy's girl. That's why you ask for a boy next. Phoenix is so much fun to cuddle with that even Paige wants a turn cuddling with him.

She's such a cutie! I think that by them wanting their daddy's attention is Gods way of giving us a helping hand with the new baby. ;)
