{Sophia} Little Ninja


Words cannot begin to describe how proud I am to be Sophia’s Aunt. Sophia is the sweetest little ninja and she all ready has me wrapped around her finger. Soon she will be using her kung fu skills to take over the world. For now she is thinking and taking it all in.

After Ben’s sister and friends left he asked me “So do you want to hold your niece.” I blurted yes and he handed her over. Turns out I was the first person in our entire family to hold her. Ben didn’t even let his sister hold her. This was a special moment.

As I held Sophia in my arms I looked over and noticed my sister with tears in her eyes. Tears because she was watching her baby sister hold her baby. I told her “We have matching scars now!” She cracked a smile and Sophia nestled her head into my arms. She knew she was safe with her auntie and soon she was a sleep.

We talked about my son and the fact that I will not hold a baby of my own. She asked me if it bothered me. I told her “You never really get over the death of a child. You just live with it.” Thats what I do. I take each day as it comes and hope for the best. I spent the evening telling Sophia stories from our childhood. Stories of our adventures, turtles, and my travels over seas. An of course I told her all about Target and promised her that I’d teach her how to make a mean cookie. Sophia stretched her arms out and made little punches. This little ninja came out fighting :-) a ninja after my own heart. Sophia is a Ninja and I have no doubt that she will change the world.

Sides! Sides! AJ knows how to bring the turkey to the yard! That's magazine worthy tooth there! Yup! I may not celebrate it, but damn I bake like a boss! Cully is way to excited about T-Rex Pajamas!!!! #PeachesandPetals if you ask me white is not a fall color. Most of the items in the November box can be purchased at your local dollar store or Dollar Tree. One would think the box would have a fall theme, instead it looks like someone went nuts in the dollar store and grabbed whatever was in their sight line because it was a dollar! #peachesandpetals November 2015 box first look. Haha jokes on them, they can't stop me
