Violet is now a Pigtail-Wearing Girl! Her hair finally is long enough to put them in, and BOY! do they look super-cute! It also makes me choke up a little, because of how much older she looks with them in.
She has grown so much in the last month, it seems she has a new word every day she's working on. Her list now includes the following:
the corresponding "Woof-Woof" ("hm, hm, hm" with vigor, down in her chest)
All Done ("aah doh")
See it ("Shit", unfortunately)
Thank You (djah-chu)
So (as in, "So pretty", only, she doesn't say them together. Just "Sooo" or just "Pft-eh")
...and as of this morning, Strawberry ("stch-buh")
All of this is just the BESTEST fun. She's become such a person, and is a total delight to be around. Her biggest concern these days is getting down a stair-step. It frightens her, and she has to be coaxed to make an attempt, even. It's kinda funny, because she goes right down it, no problem, once I push her over it. :) Just a lotta fear over nothin'!
Yesterday the two of us girls went and got coffee together.
She got to walk all the way across the parking lot into the shop
by herself (holding my hand) and wait in line for our latte
like a Big Girl. It was such a fun experience! I love having a Girl
all my own. :) Many thanks to my husband for leaving me with
such a gift....at such an expense to him.
