Thanks to Auntie April and Uncle Bart (who are seasoned and thoughtful parents), Violet had a dress that matched all of her cousins!! We took a ton of pictures to try to get one decent shot. This was the winning shot on my camera. April, maybe you have other ones?
I thought that I would include an outtake. Modeling isn't all fun and games :).
Violet has been discovering the many properties of water... mainly in the dog water bowl (yes, I know that it can be worse, lately I've caught her eyeing the toilet). In an attempt to avenge any further exploration, I ordered her a water table with some of my birthday money! She LOVES it.
This was our first "run" with the water table. Notice that she's in not in a swimsuit (big shout out to BFF Sophie in SD for the slammin lady bug outfit!)... Needless to say, Violet was SOAKED by the time we were all done.
Note to self-- swimsuit + water table = quicker drying baby.
It had been years since I saw Kitt and Carmen, so naturally, they hadn't met Violet or visited our Orlando home... Until June 20th! :) We were so excited to hear about Carmen's sorority convention in Orlando that we promised them a good time while they were here :).
Unfortunately, Violet was having a reaction to her MMR shot and was a little more antsy and whiney than usual. I was apologetic but Violet was able to show her true colors by the last day of their stay. We had a fun time. Come back and visit soon!
