Sophie Le Thiet is three years old!

Happy Birthday baby! We are so blessed to have you in our lives.

We celebrated Le's birthday with friends and family. We were soooo excited to have a beautiful sunny day to party, Dora style :o)

Every year on Sophie Le's birthday we burn a candle for her birthmother. It serves as a reminder that there is a very important person on the other side of the word that will always be a part of our family. Sophie Le was so excited about the candle this year. She kept saying, "This is ***'s candle!" I am so thankful at how natural Le talks about her bm. After the party I put the candle on the island in the kitchen and Sophie Le makes some comment about ***'s candle everyday :o)

I didn't take this picture. I saw Sophie Le a few minutes after this and she was eating the below pictured now-or-later. I was so surprised and said "Sophie Le, are you old enough for that kind of candy?" She quickly responded, "I think so."
