Sofia at 6 years old

I can assure you that the flower and pose were all her own idea, but I must admit that I am doing a somewhat cheesy pose with a rose in a senior picture.

Never too young to practice baby wearing. Sofia wanted us to dress alike and both carry our babies in the picture. 

Sofia has been 6 for almost a month, and I just wanted to write down somethings that we want to remember about her at this age:

  • She is learning how to sound out words and beginning to read beginning reader books.
  • She is the tallest girl in her kindergarten class.
  • At Sofia’s 1st parent teacher conference, her teachers told us that she is curious, kind, helpful, and that she really likes to write. Sofia loves making lists and instructions of how to do things.
  • She needs her beauty sleep and is grouchy when she has to be woken up.
  • She loves to help. She helps cook, take care of Miriam, rake leaves etc….
  • She is very contemplative and asks deep questions.
  • Sofia doesn’t like when things are hard for her, so we have to remind her that the best things in life aren’t easy.
  • She is loud and silly.

Here a few questions I asked her today just for fun:

What is your favorite thing about school? Writing time.

What is your favorite food? Pizza. I had cheetos with Grandpa once.

Who do you love spending time with? Miriam

What is your favorite thing to do with your family? Play

What do you want to be when your grow up? A coach.

What’s your favorite book-The Giving Tree

Who makes you laugh? Gabe

Why do we celebrate Christmas? Because we go to church and church is about God and Jesus has his birthday on Christmas.

Where is your favorite place that you have gone in the last year? Disneyland

We love our sweet Sofia. We all miss her when she is at school all day and  savor our time with her when she has is home.

I love that her favorite place visited is Disneyland. That means Chris did a great thing by sacrificing a trip out here.
