Guess Who is 8 Months Old Today?

Violet practicing her flirting.

She was saying "Yeah".

Chewing on everything in sight!

"What Mama? I'm busy playing."

Baby Violet is eight months old today. It is unbelievable how quickly she is growing up! She got her first tooth yesterday. That explains why she has been up in the middle of the night again. She can sit up by herself but prefers to stand. She can't stand by herself yet so she demands help!

She started army crawling a bit this week. She isn't very fast at that yet so if she wants to get somewhere quickly she rolls. It is pretty funny to watch. She can say: hi, mama, dada, papa and yeah. She is a very sweet baby but will let you know when she is mad. She gets MAD if you give her a bottle. She even glared at her sweet Granny (my mom) and gave her a dirty look for trying to feed her a bottle. Violet is VERY stubborn when she wants to be (she gets that from Travis). ;)

She loves her big sisters and scrunches her nose and them and smiles. They love to hold her and make her laugh. Vi is a very good baby and we are so lucky to have her in our family. Even if she is wreaking havoc on my back (my dainty flower weighs almost 18 pounds).

Violet and her cousin Lily are both being baptized on Sunday. It's going to be a special day with lots of family here to celebrate. A special day for two special girls.

More later,
