"Great" Times...

My grandpa turned 90 years old on Tuesday and we are having a surprise 90th bday party for him this weekend at his retirement home, The Greenwood Village. He loves to tell everyone that he is 90 and going strong. He still calls everyone else at the Village, "Those old people!" He has yet to consider himself "Old" and probably won't till he hits 100! Here is a copy of the bday card that we made for him (although it is a bit blurry when I uploaded it to the blog, but you get the idea!)

Happy Birthday Little Sister!!! Sarah's 26th birthday was yesterday, Tax Day. I also learned that it was the day the Titanic sank and the day Lincoln died! Poor sissy has to share her bday with all those tragic events -- especially writing the federal gvt a tax check!! That is VERY tragic!!

Sarah was over on Tuesday and we all were watching Oprah b/c she had on there "Country Stars." The best Oprah show is when she talks the least! :) I can't stand her, but I love some of the guests she has on! Sophia loved watching the Country Concert on TV. She was so tired afterwards she fell asleep!! Although, you may notice she has on her PJ's at 5pm.... well, that was b/c her diaper leaked and Sarah had 2 little butt cheek imprints on her black pants from Sophia!!

That same night, Sophia was helping her daddy pack his lunch. He was singing to her in his crazy, loud voice. He was also cutting a cheese block and kept telling her, "Oops, I cut the cheese Sophia." She just laughed and laughed and laughed! She is getting so fun right now!

Yesterday was also the day we got to go meet Sophia's new best friend, Laurel Elaine Powell. She was born 4/14 at 2:28pm and weighed 8 lbs 7 oz. She was 20.5 inches long. She is a cute little girl with a TON of black hair!! She seemed so tiny when I was holding her! I can't remember when Sophia was that small!! Hard to believe she was even a pound lighter than Laurel!!! It was great to see Erin and her GIRL!! Finally, after two boys, the Lord blessed her with a girl!! Laurel is also going to be another one of Sophia's cloth-diapered friends!! Go green baby! :)

Erin's mom was holding Sophia so I could take some pictures of Laurel! Sophia loved Judy!!

Finally, we ended the busy day yesterday at mom and dad's house for Sarah's bday dinner! My aunt Sue loved holding Sophia!! Of course you can tell the outfit is different -- only b/c Sophia had a MAJOR blow-out and ruined her cute little fleece outfit!! Speaking of that fleece outfit, it is one of our FAVORITE outfits! (Awesome job JILL picking it out! You have great taste girl!)

Well, that is all from our end!!

Not sure if I blogged about our time on Monday -- but Sophia is up to 12 lbs now!! Oh yeah!!! We rocked the scales this week!!! Hopefully she will be at least 12 lbs 4 oz this coming week!!

Have a great Friday everyone!! Enjoy the beautiful weather (those that live in Indy!)

Allyson and Sophia

Thanks for the shout out! I knew when I saw it I had to have it:) I am glad that you are getting some good use out of it. If you remember I wanted to buy the bigger one so she could wear it this coming winter, but they didn't make the onesies in the bigger sizes. I love it when I see pics of her in it because I think she looks so cute in it, the green in the shirt looks great with her hair!!
