Violet is 11 months!

Yesterday Violet turned 11 months old!  I truly cannot believe she's almost one! This has really been the fastest year of my life. I don't know if it's the four kids or that I'm older or a combination, but whew...we were just on our way to the hospital trying not to have her in the car!

In between marinating chicken for supper and needing to cook, I scooped her up and headed outside to take a few pictures of this sweet 11 month old!

What eleven months looks like for Violet:

Girl loves to eat! She's having formula as well as food. She eats both baby food and table foods and loves pretty much everything except green beans and peas in the table variety.  She hates having her face wiped and when she sees you coming, she immediately tries to push your hands away while she's shaking her head and whining/crying/yelling so you don't do it.  She continues to hate being put in her carseat, but once she's in, she's fine and is a great traveler in the car.  She sleeps great at night and takes 2 naps a day. She's got 8 teeth--4 on top and 4 on bottom.  The 4 on top came in all at once and as soon as those started to break, the two on either side of her middle bottom started to pop through too.  Yep, six teeth at once. Her hair is lightening up and while it's still brown, she has some lighter spots that are blonde-ish.  Brown eyed girl, just like Lily though they have different color browns. She continues to be a mama's girl and when she's crankypants, she doesn't even want her daddy to hold her...just me.   She crawls a funny little crab crawl with one knee regular crawling and the other foot up pushing her along instead of a knee. She pulls up on the furniture or a person and she just started standing for a couple seconds on her own. She looooooooves music! Dancing, "singing", and moving as soon as someone is singing or a song starts.  She also holds her own with her big sister.  Lily isn't the most gentle of sorts when it comes to playing with Violet. They adore each other and I love watching their relationship develop. Violet also loves to hang out with Andrew and fortunately he feels the same.  He's so good with both the girls! I'm grateful for that. "Bubba" is one of her new words.

These pictures capture her personality perfectly.

Happy 11 months, Pippi!
