Violet's picture day proof sheet came home yesterday.

Take one.

Take two.

Take three.

Take four.
Think we'll go with four. Ha ha!

I guess she wasn't having a good day. It seems like she's going through some stage right now. Found out yesterday morning that she cries every morning she has to leave the baby room and go to the toddler room. She gets dropped off real early and her teachers don't get in till 7:30 so she gets to hang out with the babies and her old teachers. Also found out from a different teacher in a different room that she's not eating lunch really well. I've asked over and over again how she does with eating and we've been told she eats just fine. Hmmm. I know how she eats at home, it's a struggle. So I'm hoping she's just going through some funk right now. I can only guess it's the 'Terrible Twos' early.

This is what book time looks like before bedtime. Violet has to have an arm full of babies to go to bed with. Usually 3 to 4. Most of the time she can barely see over them and I have to hold the book up in the air for her to even see it. And there is no taking them away once she gets in bed. She hugs them till she eventually falls asleep. Then we have to go in and move them. Many times they are under her. I don't even know how that could be comfortable.

Part of our new bedtime routine is that Violet has to run into the dining room and hide. She started this about a week ago. We act like we can't find her and she laughs, comes running out and then heads up stairs to get ready for bed.

Here's what her hair looks like after you take out the pony tails.

We thought Violet was coming down with some stomach bug last night. Turns out it was just gas. She was crying and grabbing her stomach for a while. She just wanted to lay on me. Then she let'em rip and she was fine. In less than 30 minutes we went from looking miserable to jumping around and acting crazy.
