Sophie turned 4 last month...she really wanted a rainbow birthday party.
At her request the party included: rainbow sprinkle cupcakes, fruit loops, strawberries, blueberries, the game "don't eat pete," a pinata, and party hats.
We hung prisms (rainbow makers) over the food table, and they doubled as party favors.
We took her down by the river to take some birthday portraits. Which was a mistake because she HATES bugs. Mosquitoes stress her out.
Once we got her calmed down she agreed to let us do a few photos as long as Jacob stood by and fanned the bugs away with the reflector.
We even captured a few genuine smiles.
Our second location had fewer bugs...she was much happier, and more relaxed. We got some fun shots.
A few things about Sophie, age 4...
She loves to play with her sister.She's been trying to learn how to read, so that she can read like Ella.
She is resourceful and independent. Case in point...she needed a band aid. We were out. she made her own out of blue painter's tape.
She really wants a pet. She would prefer a dog, but birds are much more plentiful around here. She's been trying for weeks to catch a bird to be her pet. She's been building nests (complete with eggs pilfered from the refrigerator, and bird seed) in order to entice the birds close enough to catch.
If you ask her what her middle name is she'll respond "Sophie Claire Dahle," or "Sophie Claire Madeline Dahle." She refers to a large number of anything as a flock, ie..."Let's go to the library so we can get a whole flock of books, Look at that flock of hay." She loves going to primary. She reminds us every night that we need to read scriptures. She loves to sing.
