three

So… I am a little behind on blogging, but I have good reason! My son was born back in October and we have been busy loving on our two littles. I am back from maternity leave and ready to share.

My little Violet turned three back in November and I’d like to just brag on her for a moment. I took these back in November and she has grown even more in these past few months. She turned three, became a big sister, and a preschooler.

So many emotions run through me when I look at her gorgeous face. She made me a momma and she makes me a proud momma everyday. She is so independent, smart, sassy, sweet, sassy (as the day is long), and funny! Vi is a problem solver through and through, she is always trying to put things in their place, find the right fit, and trying new angles. I really love that a one of her new favorite things is jigsaw puzzles. It’s really cool to watch her work them and do them with her.

These are a few of her favorite things: unicorns, kittens, tiny little toys to hold onto, being our official chocolate taster, baking, school, jigsaw puzzles, restaurants, spicy drink (sprite), Incredibles movie, recognizing the letter “V” everywhere, road trips, spaghetti, anything pink, jumping in puddles, swinging, going to the mall and zoo, ballet, paw patrol (Marshall & Rubble), burritos with chips and salsa, and getting her brother to laugh.

Watching her become a big sister just melted my heart. She is so sweet and caring with Arlo. Seeing them play and interact together bring me more joy than they will ever know. My heart is so full! Vi can get Arlo to laugh and he hears her voice and will start looking for her now. Uggh, the best! I am so excited to see them grow together.

Happy Birthday Violet, we adore you and wish you many more wonderful birthdays to come and may the dear lord bless you! <3

Hudson - Two Years

"Clink"... I can think of no better way to spend an afternoon, "tea for two" with this very adorable, funny, and fancy two year old. Hudson loves to blow bubbles, be tickled, play with Penelope (little mouse doll), play peek a boo, and have tea parties with her stuffed animals. She steals my heart every time, you gorgeous sweet girl you! Happiest 2nd Birthday Hudson, it has been a joy watching you grow!
