6 months of Sofia

And 6 months have passed. You’re much more than I could ever imagined and I thank God every day to have you in my life. You’re special. You have a charm that is only yours and it’s unique and unlike anything I knew before I met you.

I suppose that it’s part of your integration strategy, and somehow, a way for you to fit in our family.

You are always in a great mood, you have your routines, you like falling asleep in your bed, alone, which makes it a lot easier on your sisters routines. You are a good eater without eating too much and you are way too big for your 6 months, so I don’t have to worry when you have less appetite.

You like to sing and when you get a higher scream you scare yourself, which is so funny to see. You had your first bronchiolitis a few weeks ago, shortly after my return to work, and it was only then that you make peace with your pacifier. You never used it before and now you don’t always want.

You like to bath and when I wash your back you sing to me. You also like the hair dryer and the hot air in your head.

Your favorite place to sleep is still the kitchen and nothing makes you fall asleep more quickly and more relaxed than the smells and noises of crockery and machines working. This was so usefull when I was at home with you and still is on our weekends!

You sleep a lot, with six months you still sleep between each meal, something that none of your sisters did. You now begin to skip the nap after your afternoon meal, but not always.

You interact with your sisters but with some fear. They speak loudly and fumbling too quickly!

Your eyes are still a mystery to me. At the end of 6 months have not figured out if your eyes are green or brown! You did get the most unusual eye color and your hair promises to be blond. Just like my father. But your cheeks are clearly mine!

It seems like it was yesterday and 6 months have gone by!
