This was taken right before nap time. This is the worst she's been all day. Her new thing is to blow bubbles with her mouth. But blowing bubbles and having a runny nose has left her a sloppy wet mess all day.


Ugh! I guess we should be happy that she's gone 5 months without getting sick. I was anticipating a cold the first week of school but she made it 2 months and that's pretty good.
Last night she tossed and turned a lot and I couldn't figure out what was wrong until she got up this morning, then I knew. She isn't too cranky or fussy, just really snotty and drooly and sleeping longer. You can tell by the photo that she just doesn't feel good. If it has to happen it's best it does over the weekend.

I think in the next couple of weeks she'll mastered sitting up. She can actually hold it for a couple of minutes now.
I have one dog that's not so thrilled with Violet sitting up. Yes, Ivy. I'm guessing it's because she no longer stands over Violet and is the one in control. Now Ivy can't get as close because Violet's arms are always moving all over the place. Also Violet has just recently noticed the dogs and stares at them a lot. Ivy does not like being stared at. Once Violet becomes mobile I think we may separate her and dogs for a while... or t least her and Ivy.

Got the package yesterday. I washed them last night because I had a load of laundry to do. She got poop on her onsie yesterday and was in a different outfit...again. This happens 2-3 times a week. I get really tired of doing laundry in the evening. Anyway... they fit really well and it looks really cute. She should be able to wear them into September, unless she decides to grow 3 more inches.

Finally a good smile. The last 2 months have been difficult getting her to smile. This month we had a ton of pics to choose from. Maybe next month she'll be able to sit on her own without any pillows. There were a few photos that got my hand in the shot because she kept falling over.

Scared the poopy out of me when I went to water the plants on the front porch. He jumped out of the geraniums onto this metal flower I have in the landscaping.

She actually looks interested in the book.

We've been having problems at school with poop leaking out her diaper. We've never had this happen at home. They suggested bigger diapers. At first I didn't think it really was the diaper that was the problem. She's been in the size 2 Pampers since July 1 and they go up to 18lbs and as of July 1 she weighed 15lbs. So I weighed her last night, I do at the end of every month for her book, and it said 17lbs. She's gained 2lbs in 3 1/2 weeks. So maybe the diapers are to small. Anyway, I bought Pampers Cruisers 3 to take to school and we'll use what we have left of the other size here at home. Now if she leaks again it can't be the diaper. I blame the exersauser.
