Miss Violet Turns Two

Two years ago my sweet Violet was born on Valentine's Day (best.valentine.ever.). Wow, that was quick. Two years of our funny, kind, stubborn baby girl.

Violet has brought a lot of joy and laughter into our family. She is a sweet, kind, hilarious, thoughtful and caring little girl. Unless you make her mad and then she is stubborn and very vocal about it! She is into everything, which means that I can't leave her alone for a moment.  She is very clever about getting into things she knows she is not supposed to.  She is sneaky and smart...a dangerous combination.

Madeline and Zella adore Violet and the feeling is mutual. Zella and Vi have become buddies the last couple months and they play well together (finally!). Violet is always asking for "Lella" and Zella loves it. Madeline and Violet are always snuggling and reading books. It is so fun to watch them together and see their relationships grow.

Violet loves to dance, sing, look at books and cuddle. She is especially fond of babies, markers and stampers.  She is a great sleeper thank goodness.  She sleeps about 12 hours a night and naps for an hour or two each day.  I totally lucked out.  Eating, on the other hand, has been a challenge.  She used to be a great eater, but lost interest about 8 months ago.  I guess she would rather be playing.

We are SO THANKFUL she is part of our family.  We couldn't imagine life without our little "cupcake". 

Violet was very excited for her birthday.  She kept saying "I'm two!", and "CUPCAKE!" on the day of her party.  It is so fun experiencing life with her.
