Sophia turns three
Wednesday was Sophia's third birthday. We celebrated the day by eating breakfast in our pajamas, going to the Commissary for a treat, and starting out the swimming season at Maadi House.
We had her favorite dinner, eggs benedict, and then had cake and presents. I had worked the night before and that afternoon to make the cake she had specifically requested. But even before the presents were opened, she and Kathleen both declared that they were not interested in cake. By this point I shouldn't be surprised, as most times nobody wants cake after the presents are opened. But still I make cake every time.
I find it strange to have Sophia turn three already - she was my Foreign Service baby, born right before we realized that Brandon might have a shot at a job other than lasagna making, and she really hasn't known anything but this crazy life. One of the more common conversations is how old somebody will turn in what country.
I'm grateful to have Sophia in our family, brightening our days and so adorably lisping out her verse when it's her turn in scripture study. I just can't believe she's three already!
