"Watch me run!"

Both feet are off the ground!

Here, too!

Running is more fun when someone is watching...







This is Sophia, running on the porch. (Porch is still under construction.) Notice the dogs laying down on the porch in the pictures. They just laid there, and watched her run back & forth, just past their noses. Aren't they the best puppies ever? They know not to mess with Miss Sophia!

She was having fun running, and I was enjoying the fact that she was wearing herself out, and would take a great nap! A great nap for Sophia is 1 1/2 hours. Her usual nap is 1 hour, once a day. I know there are those of you that get 2+ hours of nap a day from your kiddos, but not at this house!

I took the above pictures yesterday. Today she got only a 5 minute nap. Fell asleep in the mini-van just when we arrived at home, and then woke up. Pretty good mood for the day, and didn't go to sleep until 9:30 pm. That's my girl, doesn't need a lot of sleep. She's a future midnight blogger, for sure!

I love it! With all the picture of LiLi that I have (cough - I think I've taken a few here and there) my very favorite are the one just like these, running with both feet off the ground. See that first one of Sophia but the biggest smile on my face because I think that their face says it all when both feet are off the ground!

Such HAPPY pictures. You can't help but smile when you see how happy Sophia is!

It's amazing you already have the pups trained not to run and jump on Sophia. That is tough for a puppy I'm sure!!

I wish I could go without sleep. :)

Jeff and Valerie said...

What a cutie-pie! She probably wears out those puppies just by running around them all the time.

Sophie's Mom said...

Maybe that's it! They know they just can't keep up with her, so they don't even try! ;)

Love those pictures. Kate also only naps once a day for an hour (she is 14months old). It makes me crazy. My boys napped for 2-3 hours each day:)
