2 months!

August 31, 2010 - 4:08 pm No Comments

How crazy is it that Violet will be 2 months on Thursday? She has changed so much! She smiles constantly and is talking up a storm. She has also gotten a lot stronger, she can hold her head up for quite awhile now! She loves to lay on her tummy on her playgym and takes naps there everyday. Her carseat has been a savior, she loves sitting in it and napping in it too. She started to hate her downstairs swing but now that I have adjusted it so its more upright she enjoys it again. I think because she loves to see whats going on. I have left her with my mom a few times and Justins mom as well. I miss her like crazy but its been a much needed break for me. I was actually able to get some stuff done! She also has been sleeping really good at night, sometimes through the whole night! She still sleeps in a swing, in a few months we will move her to the crib. For now it works!! She is quite the chub and has been growing out of lots of her clothes. She has tons of shoes which are finally starting to fit which i love. Not that she needs shoes, but hey, they are so darn cute.

Meeting Cousin Landon

Justin’s brother Jason and his wife Melissa had a baby just 1o days after Violet was born. Little Landon is a cutie and I think its so neat that the cousins are sooo close in age. They live nearby which makes it even better. Justin’s mom is so excited that she got two grandchildren at once!

First Trip!

2 weeks ago we took little V on her first road trip! We drove out to Monterey for Justin’s cousin’s wedding. She did so good! She actually slept almost the whole way there and back surprisingly. We had a great time and really enjoyed showing off our little princess to Justin’s family! Violet got to meet her great grandma Dickmeyer which was really neat since its grandma’s first great grandkid. Grandma lives out in Nebraska so we don’t get to see her very often. Violet also got to have her first dance with her daddy at the wedding. It was so adorable to see Justin dancing around with her. I was scared that she wouldn’t sleep at night in the hotel because we were going to put her in the packnplay but she did great! It’s amazing how much stuff you have to bring when traveling with a baby! My little car was packed to the brim and it was only for 2 nights! Since it was my first time traveling with a baby I’m sure I brought way too much! All in all it was a really fun and I am just so thrilled to be a mom!

Violet is now 1 month old! I can’t believe it! It has gone by pretty quickly! She is such a sweet girl and we feel so lucky to have her. It seems like she gets chubbier and chubbier everyday! She still rarely sleeps during the day which is really tough but nighttime usually goes really smoothly. I do wish I could take a nap during the day but she just won’t allow it! She loves to be held all day! Justin misses her like crazy when he is at work so he loves to cuddle with her when he gets home. Its so cute to watch. I love to take her on errands with me, everyone loves to stop and stare at her.. she is just so darn cute! Bald head and all!
