3 months

Look at my giggly little cherub.
She is as sweet as pie.

Her gummy grins make my heart sing.
Whenever we get a good smile like this,
Pearl points in Violet's mouth and says 
"See mom-- NO TEETH!"
She's baffled by this.

Just a minute here--
Quick wardrobe change....




There we go.

You wouldn't say this outfit is too over the top would ya?
Me neither.
My cousin Tara gave this lil' number to Violet,
and hello, goodbye--
I'm in love.
love those lips.
At 3 months: Violet won't take a binky.
Which is especially bad because she 
does not like driving in the car.
She screams her head off until 
we've made it safely home,
then the crying stops immediately.
The other day I bought 5 different styles of binkies,
hoping one would get us through our errands.
but alas, she spit every last one out.

She does however love playing with her mouth.
She's always smashing her lips together,
sucking on her tongue, and hands.
 Blowing spit bubbles is also a new favorite.

She'll occasionally wake up around 4:00am to eat,
but for the most part she sleeps through the night.

98% of the time she is an angel,
 but when she is mad--
she'll let you know with an ear piercing scream,
 which Kelly has dubbed the pterodactyl.
We've had strangers comment on that 
"high pitch scream."
Telling us she's 
"very opinionated for being so young."  
Even with the all the sass,
She's big on smiles,
and laughs so easily.
 She loves to be swaddled,
and she loves to be sung to.

She knows when you're standing up with her,
and when you are not.
and by golly, she prefers you stand!

 She is loved.
  And she looks good in violet.
Which is a good thing.
I have a feeling she'll be wearing a lot of it.
