Introducing Sophia Lillian
This little miss is my granddaughter, Sophia Lillian, who arrived on Sunday, April 25.
Having spent nearly a week with her and her family I can attest to the fact that she is (currently) a diligent sleeper and as sweet as can be. I love her to bits.
While there I did the usual mom and gramma things to help the family--laundry, meals, baby-tending so mom could sleep, transporting, etc. It was all good.
Sophia has three older brothers, ages nearly-9, 5, and 2, and an older sister who is 6. They are positively joyful children, just happy with whatever comes their way, whatever they find to do, and they're creative enough to find plenty to do that's within the bounds of safety.
They live on a 30-acre farm with cows, sheep, 4 pigs (that everyone else in the family thinks are adorable (Can you tell I don't like pigs?)), rabbits, and a variety of birds including chickens, ducks, a goose or two, and some quail. There is always something to do at their house, either inside or outside--some game to play with them, some book to read, some roaming to do in the pastures, animals to feed, eggs to collect.... The life they take for granted is really very interesting and sometimes even exciting.
I loved nearly every minute of my time there. I came home exhausted but I woke up the next morning and I realized I live a very boring life. After time with them, quilting just doesn't compare for fun and excitement. Ha! I wish our homes were about three hours closer to each other.
