I'm sort of an information junky. I'm not as bad as Roy, but our collection of Reference books is pretty impressive. So when Roy spotted a back tooth coming out of Sophie's gums, I rushed to the bookshelf. A BACK TOOTH? Before she has her first 4, bottom front teeth!? Inconceivable! But my eyes did not lie and my book did say that sometimes teeth do come in out of order.
This child... she doesn't walk or stand without help. She shows no signs of a mama or dada. I can give her a bowl of cheerios, raisins, and goldfish and she will sit for 20 minutes meticulously picking out which things she wants to eat, she no longer has interest in food that is cut up - she wants the WHOLE grilled cheese, in hand, so she can take her own delicate bites.
There is no Reference book in the world that can tell me what Sophie will do next and that is why she amazes me.
