This was an absolutely perfect weekend - beautiful weather; great friends; happy and inquisitive baby; good food; and lots of love.
Friday night we saw the wonderful new work of our good friend Daniel Mason and had the honor of catching up with Auntie Kara from NYC. Sonia was on her best behavior and slept peacefully, waking long enough to show off her beautiful eyes before falling back to sleep.
Sonia cheered her papa on at her first soccer game on Saturday evening. She stayed awake for all of the first half and most of the second, and thanks to the hours of international soccer her papa has exposed her to via Fox Soccer Channel, she seemed to have a deep understanding of the game. Watch out Mia Hamm!
This morning we started the day off bright and early with a walk to the Farmers' Market, our favorite spot in the city. We indulged ourselves with our usual - Bratwurst and limeade - the breakfast of champions.
Sonia's personality really flourished this weekend. She has started to forge a sleep routine for herself that is working quite well. She's also beginning to find her voice, and spent 10 minutes after her shower tonight cooing, singing and being adorable.
Tomorrow starts another week. I can't wait to see the changes that unfold.
