It's Violet! Her mama decided pictures were okay after all, so you get to meet her officially. She's not so sure about the idea, but I like this picture. Shows off her gorgeous eyes.
She cracks me up- I'm convinced there are actually two Violets. There is the one that her mama knows, and then there is the one who comes to daycare. Both are fabulous, but they act so differently that it's comical. Every time I say something about what she's doing, how she acts in different situations, the things she likes to eat, the way she sleeps, ANYTHING, it's almost always the exact opposite of what she does while she's at home. I'm always so surprised to hear about her evenings and weekends, because I never get to see most of the things that she does there.
Here she's very deliberate and kind of serious. She gives out big smiles, but I think I've only heard her laugh once or twice, and she's cautious and careful. She gets her feelings hurt pretty quickly and will be upset by people coming too closely, even if they don't touch her or knock her down. Rather a large personal bubble. :) And at home, she sounds really giggly and carefree. Of course, Mufasa is never at her house trying to crowd her, so there's that.
I've never had anybody do this before and I think it's the cutest thing! I bet her mama will be the kind who puts cute notes in the lunchbox every day. I always think I'm going to do that at the beginning of the school year and I never actually do it.
