Everyone loves Sophia and she fits in really well. Just like Ally did, she has to learn what it means to be in a family. She is a pretty easy little one though. She eats and sleeps well.
Because her adoption is not complete...we cannot show identifying pictures of her cute face. You'll just have to trust me how super adorable she is.
Sophie doesn't really know how to play with toys or interact with other children. She puts everything in her mouth and that is about the extent of her playing with toys at this point. She loves all the big kids who can hold her and carry her around. She loves hugs and attention.
She is also learning to walk. She walks around furniture and takes several steps alone if she can walk back and forth between two people. That's one of the few things that makes her smile and laugh.
She has been to the doctor and he said she seems pretty healthy. Priorities for her health right now are getting some blood work done and getting her eyes checked. Poor little one doesn't see well and that can affect all areas of her development, so we want to get that checked out right away.
Ally doesn't interact with Sophia too much yet. She is sympathetic and concerned if she cries or needs anything. She will pick up something if she drops it, or bring her cup to her if she needs it.
Unlike, Sophia, toys are very important to Ally so she doesn't always like to share. She collects toys to keep out of Sophie's reach. Today she was on the deck with Sophie, and Ally built a little fort all by herself to sit inside with some things she wanted to keep safe. So smart and so cute!

Ally seems really big to us all of sudden. Her skills and signing have made big improvement recently. It's been good for us to see her as the big girl that she is. Ally is enjoying the beautiful spring weather.

It is amazing to see Ally's progress. It encourages us to look forward to all the progress Sophia will make as she settles in and as she learns to love and be loved.
