Bye Bye Piepie

We are done with the piepie (pacifier)!!!!! We mailed it to Cinderella and she sent a prize in exchange for the piepies. Sophie did pretty well and really only cried for it a few times when she was overtired. Now she doesn't ask for it at all. Our sweet baby girl is growing up.

Waiting to take the piepies to the mailbox and mail them to Cinderella.

Trying to get one last peak.

Coloring the envelope to mail the piepies in.

Disney World

Yay! We went to Disney World. We went to visit Nanny and Papap and while we were there we thought it would be a good time to take Sophie to see Mickey. We had the best time and Sophie absolutely loved it. We spent the entire day at The Magic Kingdom. Actually, we only saw half of The Magic Kingdom, but that is ok because we saw it at Sophie's pace and she enjoyed every minute. I can hardly wait to go back. Anyway, here are some long overdue pictures from our day. I apologize for the pictures being in random order.

Sophie, Nanny and me watching our first parade of the day.

Sophie and me with a statue of Goofy.

Daddy pushing a napping Sophie in her stroller. She did so great that day. She walked almost the entire time we were there. She wore her monkey harness and it was great. She didn't whine about wanting out of the stroller and we were not constantly worried about her getting separated or having to hold our hand.

Sophie loves balloons, so of course, we just HAD to have a Mickey/Minnie balloon as soon as we walked through the gates.

Sophie waiting in line to see Mickey

Nanny and Papap with Sophie. We were so happy that they could enjoy the magical day with us.

Jason and me with Rella's castle in the background. I think this is the first picture of just the two of us that we have taken in a long time.

Trying to take a picture before we went in was difficult because Sophie was soooo excited she kept turning around to look at everything.

Our family picture with Mickey and Minnie.

Sophie hugging Mickey. She was soooo excited to see him! Actually, Sophie called Mickey -- Minnie and she called Minnie -- Daisy. She stills gets it mixed up and now usually calls both of them Minnie!

Sophie breaking in line to talk to Mickey. The little boy in line in front of us was scared of Mickey, so Sophie decided she would go ahead a give Mickey a hug while the little boy was trying to decide what he was going to do. This totally shocked us. We really thought she would be a little scared of them, but she wasn't.

Sophie with Belle. She was the last princess we talked to and by this time Sophie was more comfortable. I think Belle was her favorite princess of the day.

Sophie with Cinderella. We still talk about Rella and her castle every day!

Sophie with Sleeping Beauty. She was the first princess we talked to and Sophie was a little shy with her.

Excited about our first ride (It's a Small World) of the day. She loved all the singing children.

The first glimpse of Cinderella's castle never gets old. All Sophie could say was "ohhh wow!" and that pretty much sums it up.

Our first picture with any of the characters was with Alice and the White Rabbit. We were afraid that she would be scared of the chacters, but she wasn't. She really liked Alice and gave her a hug, but she just looked at the White Rabbit when he tried to give her a hug.

Well, that is all for now. We also went to the Florida Stawberry Festival in Plant City. We had a lot of fun there too. It was Sophie's first time to be able to enjoy the fair rides. She LOVED the rides and could not get enough of them. I will post pictures from there later.
