It was a perfect day for kite flying. Longview had their annual kite festival so we decided to check it out. At one point there must have been a couple hundred kites in the air from professionals to your average Joe. As you can see from the picture below Violet slept through the whole thing.


Fun with iMovie. We're learning to use iMovie . Don't know why it's so grainy or small. All we did was take the same video as the last post and add music.

That's really about as angry as she gets. She likes marching, or as Chris calls it 'conducting an imaginary orchestra', which is her other sign for being mad.

I haven't mentioned this because I didn't want to get jinxed. I don't know if I should knock on wood, cross my fingers, say a chant or say a prayer but last night she slept from 8:30 to 4:00. That's practically all night. For the last week she's been sleeping longer and longer at night and the evening fussies has been reduced to about an hour. I'm not quite sure what we did to start this pattern but I'm not complaining. I read the book Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child and one thing it stated was that at week six your baby should be sleeping more and be less fussy at night. Wow! It's like someone switched on a light, or off in this case. This all started about a week ago and pretty much happened one evening and has continued. I haven't really tried any of the techniques in the book ,except watching for the signs of sleepiness, but maybe subconsciously I am. Who knows, but the book has been dead on so far.

Our friend Kim gave us this. It's as if someone used Chris as a model. It's dead on from the hair to the glasses. It reminds me of the Seinfeld episode when Elaine discovers a store dummy that looks just like her or the episode where a doll looks like Georges mom. Anyway, this is a character from a Playstation video game as you can see below.
