All I want for Christmas is for my 2-year-old to sit still for more than two seconds…

Sophie was blessed at church on Christmas. She made it much easier for us than Stella did on her blessing day in Rhode Island. She slept through the entire Sacrament meeting. She kept her headband on. And she did not feel the need to unwrap all the fake presents under the Christmas trees in the hall, like SOMEONE else we know…

Three month old Sophie looks exactly like three month old Stella, but seems to be WAY more mellow. Sophie does not do nocturnal gymnastics when she should be sleeping. When you put her to bed, she wakes up in the same place in the morning, instead of upside down after a night of turning around and around and around in circles. Sophie, unlike Stella, seems to be able to sit still for more than two seconds. Sophie, unlike Stella, loves to snuggle; her favorite place to be is squished in someone’s arms. Usually it doesn’t matter who is holding her. In that way, she’s like her sister. Sophie is friendly and pleasant and loves smiling and having one-on-one conversations but only if she has your complete attention. We wondered if she might be the calming force to complement the crazy of Stella. So far, Stella is still crazy and thinks she has better things to do than hang out with Sophie. She still thinks Sophie’s head is a xylophone and that her tummy is a trampoline. Oh well. One day, they’ll be best friends forever. At least that’s what everyone says…

Sophie would like to interrupt this broadcast to announce that she laughed for the first time on New Year’s Eve and discovered how to roll over and not hate tummy time on New Year’s Day.
