My Little Violet

It's wild how quickly she grows.  We only keep the same routine for just a few weeks before she's moving on, changing, and entering the next stage.  Right now she wakes up from her morning nap just after Poppy and Roman lay down for a little quiet time.  Truthfully, I love the days when there is overlap, and I get a few moments (!!) to myself...but also, I love hearing her stir.  Violet makes little noises and finally I can't stand it any longer. GOT.TO.GO.SEE.THE.CHUBBBY.CHEEKED.BABY!  Some days we spend an hour or so in her room.  Nursing.  Poopy blow-outs (hey, its real life).  Drooling on toys (her).  Reading magazines (me).  It's amazingly peaceful, and excellent at decreasing my stress. Silent house, winter outside the window, and I'm hanging out with a cute cuddly baby.

I can feel the love you have for your children when I am with you and when I read your blog. Thanks for sharing that love and excitement about being a mom. You are an example to me. Love you! Love Violet.

Oh how I love that sweet little girl of yours! She's so stinkin' cute! And is it just me, or is there something different about this baby, knowing she's the last one? I feel like I need to breath in each of these moments and savor them, for never will I have them again.

I just adore your sentiments, your words and pictures. I can't ask enough; will y'all adopt me?
