Big Girl Violet

Violet is turning One Year Old on Thursday! I'm freaking out a little bit. This year with her precious little face went by so fast. Today, like most days recently, I was struck by how big she's getting.

Violet crawls around the house like she owns it. We put a gate at the top of our stairs so she is free to roam in the areas we live most, without us watching her every move. She plays very nicely all on her own. Sometimes I'll hear her happy little noises and realize she's all the way down the hall in the toy room. Just checking out the goods. Today she was standing up at the table, playing with Nola's new cash register. It's just so sweet and cute to watch her play like a big girl. Making her own decisions on where to go, what toy to play with, or which piece of trash on the carpet to eat next.

We love our Vee Dizzle. (Oh yes. We call her that.)


  1. Ha! I love the nicknames we give our kids. Our kids have several each.

  2. Ah, yes, and so it begins. Making her own decisions on where to go and which toy to play with next...

  3. I CAN NOT wait to kiss those chubby cheeks!!

  4. Happy Birthday, Little Miss Violet!
    (P.S. When Maureen was a newborn, I sometimes called her "Teeny Reeny.") :)
