A Very Big Cat

We went to meet Cosmo at a thing for the MBASA. I thought since Sophie did a good job with Santa Claus that she'd be fine with Cosmo. Not so. We took my friend Danielle's little girl Alexis with us and as soon as she saw him she started screaming and wouldn't go anywhere near him, so I think that made Sophie afraid, too. Or maybe she would've been scared anyway. We tried to tell them that he's just a really big kitty cat and is so soft and nice, but they wouldn't have any of that. In order to get a picture with him I had to hold both girls and then he had to be far away until they almost took the picture, at which point Cosmo would sprint up behind us and we'd all be in it together. Poor Cosmo, he must get tired of putting up with screaming kids who are scared of him, but he was a good sport. As soon as he left, the girls were happy as can be and ran around the gym playing with the balls and balloons. I just hope Sophie gets over this fear of big creatures before we take her to Disneyland this summer!

It's definately a phase...Paige was scared of Santa Clause until this year. And wasn't to fond of the stuffed type characters at Disneyland until she was 3, but she abosultely loved the Princesses. So I hope it goes better for you guys at Disneyland. How fun, we wish we were going, we love that place!

Do you think she'll still want to go to BYU?

That's still a great picture of Sophie even if she is screaming her head off. She'll love it when she's older, I'm sure.

My Makayla is so touch and go. She'll be fine sometimes and totally shy another, then she won't smile then she'll be too silly. Don't these kids know we just want a cute little picture? Haha. Sophie is so cute in that little outfit!
