Sophia turned four this past week. Our little girl is a “preschooler” now.
I remember . . .
Her “Birth Day.”
She slept, ate, slept some more, ate some more.. .
Outside the sun was shining, bright against the snow. . . the beginning of Spring!
Her 1st Birthday
We were still living in our one room apt in Moscow - but we had 6 for dinner!
Sophi danced on her new table, got her first flowers from her cousin Senya . . .
And, made her famous “piggy” face!
Her 2nd Birthday
We had moved to Smolensk. She had her own room now!
She wasn’t too sure what a birthday was . . . and didn’t quite know what to do with all the presents . . .
We had cupcakes with candles and she wore her “birthday bib!”
Her 3rd Birthday
She helped to make her own cake - it was a castle, for a princess!
Her papa made a castle and all her royal friends dressed in their finest!
Her 4th Birthday
She wore her Princess dress all day . . .
and played with her new doll house . . .
She was a rabbit for a while and hopped and hopped . . .
She went on a “Dora the Explorer” treasure hunt with her friends, and pinned a tail on a donkey . . .
She knew the warmth of young love with a friend.
Our little girl is fun, smart, full of interest and LIFE . . .
and we can’t wait to watch how God grows her over the next year . . .
