Growing Up

Lately Sojo just seems so grown-up. It happened sometime over the holiday break, and I'm in awe of the transition. Her legs have grown longer, she's drawing happy faces with legs and arms (pic soon--it's beyond adorable!), and she is rambling on and on in paragraph form about life in general.

Not only is she seeming bigger, she is talking about when she is bigger. For the last few months, she will randomly tell people that when she is a big girl, she's going to go and live in China all by herself. No mama, no baba. Just her. Some days she'll turn to us and say, "I'm ready to go and live in China now." Of course, I have all these beautiful visions of her 3 year old soul wanting to reconnect with her homeland. Then, one of us asked her the other day why she wants to go back to China. Her answer was, "There's lots of toys." Ha!
The surest sign she is getting bigger is her lack of what we used to call the "bubble breakdown." Inevitably, she would lose it when we played with bubbles because she would get so frustrated. Now she goes out on the back step and blows bubbles to her heart's content. Even better when she and her friend get to wear superhero capes while doing it.

I keep reflecting about the day we first met her...asleep on your bed. How tiny she was and now here she is living in a world of imagination and discovery all around her...growing and changing right before our eyes. What a wonderful gift to a couple of grandparents on the other side of the world.
