Healing from the c-section with Sophia was more difficult than with the other two. Samuel was a breeze, and Emma was okay...but with Sophia, I was in so much pain. I went home a day early from the hospital just so I could be in pain alone in my own bedroom! I have learned a lot about myself after having Sophia. Some are good and some are bad. I will blog more about this soon, but back to Phee for now.
Sophia was a loving and cuddly baby from the beginning. She slept good, cried little, and curious a lot. She truly loves Samuel and Emma. Her face lights up immediately whenever she sees them. However, now she is demanding to have her own space and to be allowed to do what she wants. She smiles often, showing her recently gained four front teeth. We have seen a large improvement in her health and speech since she got tubes in late April. Sophia "talks" as much as everyone else in her family. Here are some of the words she can say: daddy, mama, emma, thank you, bye bye, uh oh, doggie, egg, up, and a few more. She is crawling around everywhere and has been for a few months now. She is cruising on anything that can hold her weight, and is appearing to attempt climbing soon. She is completely off of the bottle and formula. Sophia is a wonderful eater, and loves it! She eats table food, and still occasionally some baby food. She is learning to clasp her hands for prayers, and loves to hear Samuel and Emma sing the blessing. She is also into books right now.
