Violet - Three Months

 WE
ARE
CRAZY
ABOUT 
THIS
SISTER
SUE!!
-got even chubbier this month

-still in disposables. I have no excuse, only reasons - we're remodeling a house, I have three kids now, I work part time and I'm tired. Does that count?! 

-is seriously pure sweetness. will sit in her bouncy seat for HOURS while I clean or help the other girls. ONLY cries when starving or it's been too long between diaper changes, etc. Basically, she's so low maintenance and JUST what this family needed. I have a feeling I might learn a lot from her. I wish I was low maintenance - really truly. It's something I'm working on! Pray for me Violet!

-13 lbs the last time I weighed her

-we think she might be teething already?! never ever had a baby do this so early but last night she woke up SCREAMING in pain, and was inconsolable. she had been gumming her hands like crazy and drooling a lot lately and I just thought it was normal baby stuff. Finally, we gave her some teething tablets and she settled down in seconds. SWEETIE PIE! She didn't really want to nurse either which was unlike her. Praying it all passes quickly and she'll be back to nursing normally in no time.

-is wearing 3-6 months clothes.

-ADORES her sisters. Both of them. Watches them and smiles and now is LAUGHING at them.

-coos and talks and laughs at us. we've even found a ticklish spot on her that makes her laugh!

-is famous for her cheeks. In real life or on the computer, the comments are always "those cheeks!!" and yes...we agree. None of us can stop kissing them. Like, she patiently waits while we shove our faces into her cheeks and body.

-LOVES DIAPER CHANGES. It's the time that whoever is changing her yells out "guuuuys!" to everyone in the house and we all come running to see her mostly naked. We oooh and aaaah all over her rolls and soft skin. She smiles her famous smile, flashes that huge left cheek dimple, and turns her head to the side slyly like "oh shucks" Then once the fresh diaper is on she will just lay there for a long time, pleased as punch like "ahhhh this is so nice..."

-she is so agreeable. So go-with-the-flow, so sweet, so positive. I LOVE HER!

It's babies like you that make me want to have a million, Violet Amelia <3 br="">

Violet - Two Months Old


Believe it or not, she got even dreamier this month. This second month is the month we truly got the "Violet is the perfect human" revelation. The first month was a little tricky sleep-wise and one can never rightly discern anything while exhausted. I kind of thought she would be another um..."passionate" kinda gal like Nora and braced myself for two powerhouse kids back to back.
And then, like a true Violet, she bloomed a bit and turned into pure SWEETNESS .

-started smiling this month
-got chubbier
-nurses well but is kind of a snacker like her mama and nora (ruby and daddy eat less often but eat FULL MEALS)
-no idea how much she weighs - sorry honey!
-starting to hold her head up more and more
-sleeps all night except to wake up to nurse maybe once or twice if it's a loooooong night's sleep

WE LOVE YOU SUGAR PIE!
