Oh, the difference a year makes!
Continuing the tradition of taking a picture of Sophia in a birthday dress that matches the colors of her birthday party. :) I wonder how long I can keep that up.
Trying to hold up 2 fingers. It's tricky for her. She starts with all 5 fingers up, and tries to fold the last 2 down. haha Usually she gives up somewhere in the middle, holds up all 5, and proudly exclaims, "TWO!"
2 fingers mastered for the first time!
Her reaction when I showed her a giant leaf.
Sweet little face :)
The pictures from both years were taken in exactly the same location. Look how many more leaves were already on the ground last year! And last year I took the pictures 2.5 weeks earlier than this year, but now temperatures are already in the 40's and low 50's, (which made for a pretty cold and grumpy model) so I didn't want to wait any longer!
We also went to take a couple fall family pictures today. Here are some of my favorites:
We had to try hard to get a smile out of this girl. It went something like this: "Do you want to go play?" "No." "Do you need mommy to hold you?" "No." "Do you want to be upside down?" "Yeah"
And last, but never least, here is a video chronicling Sophia from ages 1 to 2. I can't believe how itty bitty she was last year!
