|She looks so grown up and so adorable!|

|Sometimes Sophia lays down in the oddest places...|
Mom, Sophia and I went to do a tour of the Hill House mansion in St Paul. It was beautiful and very Downton Abbey - the family even lived in it during the same time period in the 1900s. It was fun to see the grand rooms upstairs, but it really reminded me of Downton when they took us downstairs and showed us the servants hall and kitchen and the breakfast dining room and formal dining room.
Before church on Easter Sunday, we dyed Easter eggs. Sophia even got to do one. She didn't seem to think it was that big of a deal. While I was helping her lower the egg, she just kind of dropped it and then gave me a look like, "Come on mom. Just put it in the water."
|I love candid pictures where I'm looking at Sophia adoringly :)|
Even after living here for 8 months, Russ and I had never been to the Mall of America, so Mom, Sophia and I headed over to check it out. Sophia didn't love it at first because she wanted to run around rather than stand in a line, but once she was on the rides, she smiled and screamed and loved every minute.
|If this picture was more zoomed out, you'd see the hoards of people avoiding her while she chilled out in the middle of the floor.|
|"No! I want to be free!"|
|This picture is for cousin Savannah|
|Sophia's face! That's the face she had as the train came around the corner and she saw me.|

|She was trying to unbuckle and get off until the started and she realized it was fun!|
|Hot air balloon ride!|
|Sophia loves helping in the kitchen so she drags a kitchen chair over and stands on it to watch/snack while I prep.|
|She often sits at the table. I've decided not to have her sit with us in a booster seat until she's better at using utensils, but she sure thinks she's big enough to sit with mommy and daddy (and grandma, in this case)|
|Sophia loves clapping along to the fight song while I read the BYU book|
