11 Month Update

Our little one is almost a year old!  The last couple of months have really been a blur.  It seems that each day she is growing more and more.  A little over a month ago, Violet had her first real bout of any major illness.  After several visits to the clinic, we finally gave in that it is "just a virus" and there is nothing we can do but wait.  It took much longer than we wanted, but she is finally back to normal.  Well, whatever normal really is.

While we don't have an official weight, we know she is over 17.5# (that is what she weighed on her visit to the clinic for her virus).  She has also become much more mobile over the past month.  Similar to her older sister, she started with the backwards crawl.  We got a couple sessions on the video camera, but haven't transferred them yet.  So between rolling, bending, and backwards crawling, she can get to were she needs to go.

During her stint with the virus, her mohawk had gone away.  However, we are glad to report that once she started feeling better, the mohawk returned!  It seems that her hair, coupled with her kicking legs, is a great way to judge how she is feeling.

We are looking forward to enjoying the next three weeks, cuz on June 3rd, we will have a one year old!
