Sonia likes to play beauty shop, but I don't think she's ready to open up her own hair salon just yet....
Unlike Christmas, on her birthday, Sosini took her time and actually played with each toy before ripping open a new one.... What a difference 5 months makes!
Later that day, Sonia had a lovely birthday party with her friends. I don't think the weather (low 70's, sunny, slightly breezy) could have been any more perfect!
One of her favorite birthday presents is a playdough cake-making contraption. She loves decorating these little desserts!
As usual, we have had criminal amounts of fun with our playgroup friends this month. One sunny day, we went to Willowbrook Wildlife Center in Glen Ellyn, and after lunch, we played a rousing (if slightly chaotic) game of Red Light, Green Light:
At Blackberry Farm, Sonia found a new friend:
And at the Brookfield Zoo, Sonia insisted on riding the giraffe on the carousel, even though it was the only animal on the entire merry-go-round that didn't go up and down.
