Violet weighs 25lb and is in the 60%. She is 33 1/2" tall putting her in the 93% and her head is 48cm which lands her in the 85%. She says about 12 words and sounds and knows all her body parts. The Dr. was telling us things she should be doing by the time she's 2 and most she's already doing. Like putting two words together. She can say 'all done' and 'all gone'. She should also be pretending by age 2, which she does with her babies and play cooking. The Dr. also said that you can't reason with them until they are two. I beg to differ with this one. She understands, for example, in order to get more french fries she has to eat her chicken. I was glad to hear she was on track of ahead on some things.

Chris decided to try and slice his thumb off a work today with an exacto knife. There was lots of blood and moments of wooziness. After an hour at Hallmark medical and an hour at the hospital he was told he'd live. No stitches were needed. Just some tape and what looked like super glue. I'm pretty sure I could have done that
Guess I'll be cutting his and Violet's dinner for a while.

This was the hardest photo shoots yet. She just stood there most of the time and wouldn't smile. Or she'd walk around and try to climb on the little chairs. I'm surprised we got a good shot at all.
