I just can not believe how quickly the time goes! Jason and I remember just yesterday when we brought her home and we were so scared! Now we have a crazy and curious little girl that is so much fun! She is a crawling machine and she loves to pull herself up to a standing position by using her toy basket. Tyson (our dog) is annoyed by Sophia because she has begun to chase him around the house. It is quite comical at our house these days.
I am a little late blogging about Christmas but in my world these days, it is better late than never!
Christmas was wonderful! Spending the holidays with both of our families is such a blessing and is always so much fun! We celebrated Christmas Eve with Jason's family and headed home on Christmas Day to host dinner with my family.
Sophia looked beautiful in her holiday dress! I can't tell you how many stores I went to in order to find red tights! What a mother will do to make sure her baby looks good! Sophia loved all of her wonderful gifts although she loved the wrapping paper even more!

Well, Jason and I decided to take a trip to NYC!! Although we missed the family during the holiday, it was GREAT seeing such a beautiful city! The trip went so much better than I think we both thought. Sophia was great! Although there were a few minor melt downs...I could not have asked for a better 6 month old traveler!
The three of us arrived on Thanksgiving Day. We grabbed a cab, checked into the hotel, and hit the town. As we headed towards Rockefeller Center we picked up cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery. We then ate our cupcakes and drank hot chocolate while people watching. It was the best!
The next few days were full of adventure as we toured the city. We walked Central Park, shopped (it was black Friday after all), took a carriage ride, walked Greenwich Village, Soho, Noho, Park Ave., Grand Central Station, Staute of Liberty, Ellis Island, Wall Street, and so much more!
This vacation was something that I always talked about and dreamed about.
