More Christmas Photos

Filed under: Sofia's Blog — Jeff Gordon @ 6:00 pm

Christmas was rather quiet.  Christmas Eve was just Sofia, Mom, Dad, and the dogs.  It was nice though.  Christmas day we went to Great Uncle Bill’s house so Sofia could meet her second cousins.

Lately Sofia has become upset easily if anyone holds her besides Mom or Dad.  This is obviously a concern seeing as how she is about to start day care in a couple weeks.  Dad will be taking her by the daycare a couple times this week so she can become more accustomed to the care providers there.  We don’t want her freaking out her first day when she realizes Mom and Dad aren’t within eye shot.  The following week she will start half days at daycare, then Angie’s mom will pick her up and take care of her in the afternoons.  We are hoping this will help ease this transition.  Of course the day care people tell us she’ll be fine and it is always the parents that freak out.  I hope that is the case, because we are certainly freaking out!

Enjoy more Christmas photos below.

Close Ups

Filed under: Sofia's Blog — Jeff Gordon @ 10:59 pm

Sofia requested some close up shots so we felt obligated to oblige her.  See below.

Mom returns to work next Monday.  Dad will be taking two weeks off to be with Sofia until the end of the year.  Grandma Dettmann will then take care of Sofia for the first week of the new year.  After that she will be in day care which is just a couple blocks from both Angie and I at work.  We have mixed feeling about her being in daycare.  The good things are exposure to new things and a structured schedule.  It is also nice that Angie and I can drop in whenever we get a break from work to go spend time with her.  Bad things are the unknowns about daycare, not being able to attend to her every time she cries, and the parental guilt associated with not being near her for every minute of every day.  We both know it is going to be very hard to leave her the first day we have to drop her off.

Sofia’s first snow day

Filed under: Sofia's Blog — Jeff Gordon @ 11:30 pm

We had an “artic blast” according to the freaked out Dallas news media last week.  Everyone panics around here when it gets below freezing.  I don’t see the big deal but I did get to stay home from work one day because it sleeted and people thought the streets were too slick.  Angie and I took Sofia outside bundled in her cute jacket to get some pictures in the brief couple hours it was actually snowing.  It was actually in the mid 20s one night.  We managed to survive.
For those of you who are into baby “stats”.  At her 9 week appointment, Sofia weighed 13 lbs and is 24.3 inches long.  This is in the 95th percentile for both height and weight.  I guess we’ll see what happens but our bet is that she’ll be taller than mommy.
