Violet is getting so good at talking. She says short phrases, and does a lot of repeating of what we say. Her most common phrase right now is, “What’s that?” She says that all the time, even if she knows what something is and she even uses it when asking who someone is. We are working on the phrase, “Who’s that?” with her. She surprises me at times with certain phrases she says to herself that I have told her in the past, like, “Be careful, Violet.” Yes, she says that to herself now. “Shut the door!” “Hi, mommy.” “Almost done.” And she has gotten really good with, “Thank you, mommy.” Sometimes when one of us has just left the room, she says, “Where’s Daddy or Mommy?”. One cute thing right now… after singing with her, putting her down for bed and saying goodnight, she has been saying, “Bye Mommy, Bye Daddy”. And yes she has been picking up Russian too.
She is such an affectionate little girl. She is always giving us hugs and kisses and shows us love all the time.
She can be really silly at times and even knows when she makes people laugh because she’ll just keeping “hamming” it at times. One weird thing my family does, well my one odd brother Jason does with Micah, is to talk using a silly voice, really stressing the r’s. Its hard to explain, but we have done that voice ourselves just being silly and she has picked up on it. Now she does it with us when we are being silly and at other times by herself just to make us laugh. If you don’t understand, maybe I’ll try and get a video in the future.
There is so much more I could write, but I just wanted to give you a little bit of what our little 2 year old has been up to lately.
Violet is our pride and joy and we are so excited about welcoming another baby into our family soon.
