Sofie is trying to get in touch with her Idaho roots. She found this hat in the closet and wore it all morning. The second picture is her shoutn' a ol' western "howdy".
Well the interviewing has begun. Spencer was at Colorado this weekend and is currently in St. Louis. The unknown is always scary and I am sad to think of having to leave all our great friends and memories we have made here in Columbus. Who knows maybe we will stay here, even though most of our friends will be gone. But hopefully it turns out to be a fun new and exciting experience whatever happens. I have been having fun with Sofie while Spencer has been gone. She is really turning into a little toddler. I wish I could just video tape her 24 hours a day and send it to everyone. I am just sad that family is missing out on her growing and changing so fast. Well we miss everyone. Drop us a note or a call--
I can't believe how fast the year has gone bye. Sofie had her 1st birthday last week. Friends and family gave her some real great stuff that has spiced up her play life. We had a picnic at the park with some friends to celebrate. We had a pinata and she did get some birthday cake (of coarse it was carrot cake:))
She had her 1 year appointment today. She was a hair under 18 lbs. That put her in the 10th percentile for her weight which was up from the 5th % she was in last visit. The doctor was impressed with her saying words already and with how good she is walking she said "I don't know if you know this but your baby is really advanced" (I'm sure I had nothing to do with this but it made me feel good:)- of coarse Spencer was really glad to hear it too.) Right now she can say ball, baby, hi, no, boo and blanket.
Spencer is up to 6 ortho interviews now they are Oklahoma, OSU, Virginia, Colorado, Philidelphia, and St. Louis. How exciting! He also gets his braces off tommorrow which I am really excited about since I keep finding his elastics all over the house.
As for me no change really: Working, wifeing, mothering and maiding:)
Our little family of four is having a blast living back in the mountains after 6 1/2 years of the midwest for Dental and Orthodontic school. Spencer is working in Grand Junction Colorado as an Orthodontist. I have hung up the nursing hat- for just a short bit to be home with the two kids until we get settled. Sofie is 4 going on 14 such a girly girl and Luke is our little wild man at 18 mo.
