Three years ago we thought you might be on your way. The doctors, however, weren't so sure. They told Daddy and I to just wait patiently and you would come when you were ready...but it probably wouldn't be as soon as we wanted. You had a different plan!
After a long night of tests and observation, Daddy and I were sent back home to wait for the "real signs" that you were on your way. The next afternoon, I awoke suddenly from a nap to a silly sensation in my tummy...you were officially coming!
Just a few short hours later, you made your way into the world; bright-eyed, soft cheeks, and sweet cooing. You didn't even cry until the nurse started to give you your bath! Daddy and I hugged and kissed you, thanking God for such an amazing blessing. We loved you from the moment we saw you!
Sofia, you are three years old today. You are so smart! Daddy and I are amazed each and every day by the new things that you discover and learn. You are a collector, pet lover, and excellent kiss blower. Your favorite teams are the Broncos and Spartans but your complete allegiance lies with the Little Einsteins. They really are "your team"! You love to sing and are mastering the alphabet more and more each day. You manage to turn heads and touch the hearts of nearly every person you meet. God shines through your eyes when you smile.
It's funny that while three years really isn't a long amount of time, it feels like you have been part of our hearts for an eternity. God had a plan for you to be in our lives! We love you so much and know that you will continue to grow into a smart, thoughtful, kind, young girl.
Happy 3rd Birthday, Sofia! We love you!
P.S. We decided that, as a princess, you deserved a castle! We hope you have fun!
