Our First Blog!

Well, at the advice of Sophie's Aunt Katie, we decided to start a blog so everyone can keep up with our sweet little Sophie Kathleen (and sometimes her mom and dad). The address is aptly named "Sophapilla" for the nickname given to Sophie by her Daddy (it sounds like Sofa-pea-ya, or rhymes with sopapilla, the Mexican dessert).

Sophie is 8 months old now and learning new things all the time. She is signing "more" when she wants more to eat or wants to play with a certain toy, she claps her hands when she's excited, and she talks ALL the time. Of course, being a speech pathologist, I think that the reason she's not crawling yet is because her brain is so consumed with making new sounds that she can't focus on physical development. I know, mommy excuses... but it IS valid. I learned it in my language development class in grad school.

If you haven't heard, we are moving Sophie to Wichita the first week of April to live near her Grandma and Granddad Eroh. We're sad to leave behind OKC but very excited to be in Wichita. You can be praying for our family's new adventure to go smoothly!

Haha! I love the nickname. Heath nicknamed Mia "Mia Tortilla." Leave it to the dads.
