Sophia's Big Obsession

Most kids are obsessed with toys or clothes or T.V, but not my little girl.  The two things that Sophia loves the most, well besides her Mommy of course, are babies and the older generation.  This girl can spot a baby coming near her from miles away.  It's like a sixth sense or something.  I'm convinced that Sophia was born with baby radar and knows when they are coming near her!  It doesn't matter where we are or what we're doing, but if a carseat or a stroller pass by us, it's all over.  Sophia gets crazy excited and makes sure that we all know that she knows there is a baby present.  And if she is on the loose, she bee lines it straight over to the carseat/stroller to get a better look at the baby cuteness she so adores.  And she is always very gentle and loving and affectionate to babies, but I'm still always a little on edge, becasue it is someone elses baby after all, and I'd feel awful if she accidentally poked the sweet baby's eye out or something!
But it doesn't just stop with cute little babies, she also has a passion for the cute little older people too :)  For instance take Randy's grandpa and my grandma, she LOVES them to pieces!  She is very cuddly and affectionate and calm when she is around them.  She likes to stroke their arm or neck and will just sit or stand near them and take every part of them in. 
Earlier this year my grandma was in the hospital for a few weeks after she fell at home, getting physical therapy and working on going back home.  So the girls and I decided to go visit her, something that we don't get to do as often as I'd like :(  Anyway, during our visit Sophia kept very close to her Great Grandma Mary.  She would stand by her chair and stroke her arm.  She would look up into her eyes and just take her all in.  She would climb up into her lap and just lay back and relax.  She would feed her Doritos from her own snack and get things to bring to her.  She was a natural caregiver :)  It was one of the sweetest things I had ever seen.  I think I could have thrown a playground right in front of her and she would have rather stayed with Great Grandma Mary instead of running off to play with other kids her age.  Total Sweetness (heart)
