Officially a Preschooler!!!!

Sophie has started preschool and she is doing great!!  She gets so excited about going to school and "playing with her friends" as she tells me.  My little princess has come a long way in such a short amount of time.  I truly believe that her medical condition was making her very miserable and she just couldn't be a happy girl no matter how hard she tried.  She dances, twirls, and runs all the time now.   I am so proud of her!!!!!

American Girl Doll

My sister sent Sophie this beautiful doll for Christmas.  She loves the fact that they have matching pajamas.  I don't know what will happen when the princess out grows these pj's!!!

Blue Jeans and Pigtails!!

Better look at the poor attempt of fixing her very thin hair!!
We are amazed that she can sit with her legs totally straight and outward!!!

One Month Follow Up

We saw Dr. Joseph today.  Sophie had and ultrasound and got a good report from the doctor today.   Her left kidney is still dilated but no signs of reflux and her bladder is still enlarged but Dr. Joseph was very encouraged by her progress and will see us back in six months for another ultra sound.  He said it would take a good six months for her to heal completely.

Last Day of Christmas Break

The kids started back to school today so I took them to do something special Tuesday.  Yes Sophie does have on shorts and no shoes.  It is very "balmy" weather here!!!!

Messy Girl!!!!

My friend Cynthia AKA Nai Nai thought it would be a good idea to give Sophie a big bottle of lotion to keep her entertained while we were trying to visit with each other.  I warned her that it was not a good idea.  She had a blast and we had a great laugh.  This girl is a mess and loves to make a mess!!!!

Silly Gurla!!!

Sophie likes for me to put her hair in ponytails.  We used to just do 3 across the top and now she wants all of her hair done.  She says "Sophie pretty!"
