Violet did really well today in her pool. I've mentioned before that we are having problems with getting in the pool or even trying to rinse her hair at bath time. She fussed only for about a minute or two and then was fine. Of course it was just her and I this afternoon. No other kids. I think that's been part of the problem. She seems to get a bit frazzled when she's in a pool with other kids. We practiced last night at bath time scooping up the water and pouring it on herself and she did it in the pool. She even poured some water on her head. She spent about 45 minutes in the pool today! That's a record.

Violet learned to turn around in circles from Jackson this weekend. Now all you have to do is say turn around and she thinks it's a game.
Her other new thing this week is clapping after everything she does. When she'd do something right and we'd say 'good job' she'd start to clap. Now she does it with out us saying 'good job'. It's pretty constant. It can follow something as simple as taking her shoe or sock off. And of course she has a huge grin on her face too.

We spent yesterday afternoon at The Legends in KS. We haven't been there since before Violet was born. There are a lot more shops and restaurants open now. We ate at the T-Rex cafe. Jackson wasn't to fond of the moving Triceratops. Also bought some t-shirts and bottoms for the fall at the Carters and Gap Outlet.

Jackson being cute.


Violet ate dinner REALLY, REALLY well!!
