Sweet Baby Sofia was born on December 20, 2011 after making us all wait about 2 weeks before she decided to make her debut! This is my 4th time being an Aunt and my 2nd sweet little niece! Sofia was born to my sister-in-law, Cali (Stephen's sister). Talk about 1 good, early Christmas gift!
Aunt Kari loves you, sweet baby! Even if she looks a bit overly excited to hold you...don't worry - she'll try reeeeeaaaallly hard not to squeeze you too tight!
I love everything about this picture - from the excitedness that he felt from getting to hold Sofia, to the awkwardness that is his hold - Stephen is one proud uncle!

Sofia was telling them about her day
One last time, for good measure, and also for you to see that awesomely, big bow on Sofia's teeny-tiny head!
She might look like a teeny peanut, but teeny was one thing she was not. Cali was ALL belly from the beginning of her pregnancy on - if you saw her from behind, you'd never even know she were pregnant. When Baby Sofia came into this world weighing a whoppin' 8lbs 15 oz, we all felt sympathy pain for Cali!
I have most definitely loved taking advantage of having a sweet little baby to hold! My other sweet baby, is no longer a little baby, but a little man who doesn't so much like to snuggle anymore.
There's Elliott-man, enjoying his big boy food!
Whelp, all that to say that our Christmas season was quite memorable and exciting! Having a precious peanut come into this world always makes your heart go pitter-patter. Anything smaller than normal size is always too cute. If you don't believe me, listen to any woman's reaction when she sees a puppy, a kitten, oh for heaven's sake, even a smaller than normal size can of coke!
