Our Growing Girlie: 14 Months

Our friend Torrey, who is a gifted photographer, took these impromptu photos at our church's monthly gathering at a local pizza place. Unfortunately, they don't show off Sophia's three pearly whites that well, but they are still wonderful pictures.

So, yes, Sophia has three teeth now: two on the top and one on the bottom. She has not begun walking on her own yet, but she can really cruise if she's holding onto your fingers! I get the feeling that when she does finally "walk" it will not be walking so much as running. Her new favorite accomplishment is to say "Hi!" to everyone while waving at them. It is very cute...except perhaps in the middle of church when she begins egging on the other toddlers with her adorable antics.

Oh, and a final "break-through" to share with you all: You'll probably think I'm lying, and I would have thought I had imagined it if Brian hadn't been right there to confirm. Last night, Brian and I watched in awe-struck silence as Sophia hummed/sang "Just You Wait 'enry 'iggins" from My Fair Lady from her highchair (minus the words, naturally)! Brian and I watched the film the evening, and I've been going around singing this song, so I guess she picked up the melody! But, we were both totally shocked by the accuracy of her pitch! Maybe we'll have a musical child, after all.


  1. That's fantastic! I know that if I were a parent, knowing that my kid was musical would make me insanely happy. The world could use more artists... fingers crossed!

  2. How cute! I love that musical and wish I had a copy of it over here. Maybe I'll have to hunt for it...or buy it when we're home in December. ;)
