Sophie's first tooth!

Sophie got her first tooth a few days ago. (Will post pictures soon). I wondered why she was so fussy the past few weeks but never imagined she was cutting teeth at 5 months old! She makes the cutest little grampa without teeth face, sucking her bottom lip in. She is growing up so fast!

Meet Sophie

Grayson Sophia, the newest addition to the Mahler Family. Adopted October 4, 2008 in Boise, ID. Sophie was quite a surprise. Danny and I had discussed foster parenting or adoption over the years, and always felt open to it if the right opportunity arose. I guess the Lord had more in store for our family than we thought when we moved back to Idaho. Sophie is the light and the joy of our home. Adored by her siblings and Danny and I, she has wiggled her way into our hearts in a way we never imagined possible.

"Our worst fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?' Actually, who are we not to be? You are a child of God: Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
