Miss Sophie Lu.
She is 5 going on 25.
Sophie came home at 27 months old. Even then, she seemed ‘grown up’.
Wise beyond her years.
She still is.
She loves to ask questions. And one question just leads to another. Her curiosity is insatiable.
As you might imagine, she absolutely adores school. Hanging out at the house is just so boring. And anytime anyone is headed out, she’s ready to go. No questions asked.
On the outside she’s a very laid-back, easy going, compliant child.
But underneath she’s a bit of a wild child. We see glimpses of this at night… when she gets tired, she gets crazy. Super silly, super giggly, and into all sorts of trouble.
That’s when we know it’s bedtime.
She’s crazy about her stuffed animals, especially Hello Kitty.
But she loves her real animals the best. Seamus always gets a high-pitched, “Shay-meee!!!” when she sees him, as she covers him with hugs and kisses.
She loves to read books and is just beginning to recognize some sight words. She’ll spend hours at the table working on her ‘workbooks’ and coloring pictures.
Sophie is thoughtful, gentle and loving. She is wonderful with her little brothers, especially Jude. They are big buddies and she pairs off with him sometimes, instead of Isabelle.
She loves to be ‘in charge’. I’ll crown her the boss when I have to take a shower, and she makes sure everyone knows she is in. charge.
Which really doesn’t mean anything, except that she’s the one that comes and tells me who is misbehaving. But that’s good enough for her.
She looks out for her sister Isabelle at school. And she likes to relay the news of Isabelle getting in trouble at school or being naughty on the playground.
Some might call her a tattle-tale. Or nosy. And possibly even bossy.
I might even have to agree.
To join in on Sunday snapshot… just grab the button and let me know where to find you and your post!
Love the photos of Sophie…she is so beautiful! You are such an amazing momma, your kiddos are so blessed!!!
Beautiful photos of your sweet Sophie. VERY MUCH like my Madeleine…wise…mature beyond her years…but SOOOOOO wonderful.
Love this post about sweet Sophie! Maggie gets wild when she is overtired too~
I have already done a post today, but am ready to join Snapshot Sunday next week!
David and Sarah says
Ah…your Sophie sounds quite a bit like my Lily! Love, love, love that girl! And I'm sure that I'd love Sophie, as well. So much spunk in those little bodies.

I love your Sunday snapshots. Sophie sounds so adorable and spunky. I REALLY want to join in…maybe next week….maybe tonight if I can get something together.
I love this post. What a great idea. I might have to join next week!
Your Sophie is beautiful and sounds a lot like my son. I love reading your blog, it truly inspires me.
Others have said this…but she sounds like my Elena! 🙂
I figured out the button & did a Sunday Snapshot post today on our newest addition–It was great as I have had 2 years of not being allowed to share her photo! It was fun!
Your Sophie is a beautiful girl!!

I see flashes of Sophie in my Tongginator… they both become wild children when they get tired and they just might end up as reporters or directors. Heh. I LOVE how spunky your Sophie is!
Football & Fried Rice says
Umm, I'm just sayin' that you CAN be nosey and bossy & a tattletale when you are THAT cute!!!!!!
Remember her hair when she came home? How did it get to be the flowing black piggies that it is today?? Your girls have such great hair!
I, too, have been thinking about taking the Sunday snapshot plunge. I think I will run out of things to say with only 3 kids 😉
She has always had a quiet beauty and grace about her. She is too cute!!
I just LOVE your beautiful, sweet, spunky Sophie!! Sounds like one amazing girl & a wonderful big sister!!
Gorgeous photos too! She looks so grown up now!!
Thank you for the special day of snapshot Sunday.
Your little girl is so beautiful and you are very blessed to have her in your life. Aren't we all that adopted bright, independent, curious, stubborn, precious children?
I couldn't resist and grab your button for my blog. What a fun Sunday we had.
You could take the word "Sophie" and exchange it for the word "Keegan" and you would be dead on!!!
My child is so excited about going to school next year, loves to be "in charge", loves workbooks, etc!
I love the pictures!
She is so darn cute! She also sounds alot like Mylee.
I am hoping to join Snapshot Sunday soon, just alot going on right now.
I am REALLY enjoying these beautiful posts about your sweet kids every week.
Thanks so much for sharing them with us.
I never realized how much Sophie is just like Carrington. I have been thinking about dusting off Carrington's blog or at least starting a new one. It has been way too long. Maybe next Sunday's snapshot will encourage me to do just that.
She sounds like she is a whole lot like my Miss Olivia…very sweet, very wise, inquisitive and sparks a tiny bit of fear in her Mama's heart about what may lie ahead! She is spunky and beautiful and I utterly adore every moment with her. Even when she's snoring (like now!)
Love the pictures! We have a boxer as well and she is the BEST!
What a beautiful girl!! She looks and sounds like such a sweetheart.
