Sofie loves to be loved and loves to give love. She is very affectionate and sweet with her baby dolls but in the same token, will slam them on the floor. So, you never know. Sofie likes Curious George and Elmo. She is a huge dog fan. She will eat pretty much anything you give her. Well, except eggs. We're still fighting that battle. Sofie does self- stimming still and feel that will continue. Yet, she doesn't do it at bed. I find that strange b/c all my other self-stimmers would especially do it at bed. We are working still on getting that finger out of her mouth and at this point, it HAS to come out or she will never have the ability to talk. We may have to resort to no-no's which I really don't want to do. We've tried just about everything though.
Sofie has come really far in a year's time. Yes, I know she has a very long way to go but we couldn't be more pleased with how she is doing. I wish I could express the love we feel for her. I really do. She is so very loved by everyone in the family and has most definitely found her place here. And, not afraid to tell you either. LOL. She is very loud, outspoken, and full of life. Only time she is quiet is when she doesn't feel well. Just wanted you all to know how she was doing. Now, time for pictures! So many I wasn't able to show all last year and it drove me crazy b/c I was head over heals in love with her. Wanted to share her with the world. As you know, I'm not all that patient. I'll do a separate post with some more pictures.
Sofie with Alyona. Getting to know you.
