Violet is 2. Seriously. When did that happen?? As usual, I’ve waited until the last moment to take my kid’s photos. Ordered “the” outfit. Guess what? Didn’t come in on time. Ahhh, yes, this is my life. I try so hard to stay on top of things, but something always suffers. I mean, this girl has everything she could want, but her momma forgot to get her birthday outfit until 5 days before her party. Its a tough life, haha. If I had time to shop locally, 5 days ahead wouldn’t be so bad! Anyway, I dug through drawers and threw something together. She’s precious regardless.
If you’ve ever tried to photograph your own 2 yr old, you sympathize with me, I’m certain. I always have this optimistic attitude that I can do anything I need to with my kids and I don’t “need” help. Well, I should have swallowed my pride on this one. She was fine at the ice cream shop, because, duh, she had ice cream. But, we attempted some outside photos, too. Disaster. No amount of singing, “you see the puppy?”, or begging would get her to look at me. I asked her where the moon was thinking she would look up. And, she did, STRAIGHT up with her mouth wide open and a confused look on her face because she couldn’t find the moon. Score.
So, Violet is 2. Some of my favorite things right now is when she says “here mom” to hand me something, which sounds more like “heeaaa mom”. She’s repeating EVERYTHING. This has been hard for me, because some of my preferred vocabulary is not kid friendly. We’re working on that. She loves her bubba. When he cries, she brings him his pacifier and rubs the top of his head. And, in all honesty, sometimes she cries right back at him, but, for the most part, she’s very sweet with him. When she dances, she looks like a chicken flapping its wings. She loves to go, go, go. Just like her momma. ;)
