Not only do we have tons of Finches but now we have a Robins nest. I took a picture of her this morning when I finally saw her in the nest. The nest has been there for a while but I never saw a bird.

This evening Chris got up on a step stool and took a picture inside the nest. The camera caught two eggs. We're not sure if there are anymore. I'm sure we'll be taking more pictures.

We didn't prompt Violet at all to do this. She really loves the dog and every time we go to Old Navy she has to pet it. I wish I could get a big plastic dog like that.
I'm guessing she understand these aren't real. I know she would never go up to a person and hug them. Maybe she thinks they are big dolls.

I finally got two of the three patches I bought at Planet Comic-Con sewn onto tshirts. I need to pick up a light pink shirt to sew her Care Bear patch on.

Violet is finally figuring out the steering thing. We have to yell "turn the wheel" a lot. I've found myself saying "turn right" or "turn left". She might even know what right or left means by the end of the summer. She still is having a problem stopping. Which is just taking your foot off the gas. She knows what stop means. When we're playing in the front yard with the neighbor kids and we see a car I yell "Violet Stop" and she stops whatever she is doing. She understands. She also knows that red lights mean stop and stop signs mean stop. Her new obsession while in the car is actually stop signs.

Driving around the tree in the front yard all by herself.

Where did I put my invisible plane!! HAHA!

I think we're just about done with the pink baby swing. Violet seems to be more interested in the other two swings on the swing set. Right now we have the baby swing, this bucket swing and a regular swing on the swing set. We set them all really really low so she can get on them herself. She has also learned to kick her feet to get swinging and use her feet to stop.
Violet had to have the hat and glasses on before we headed outside. She originally wanted her winter hat and I said no.

What are the odds of finding a shirt with Violet's name on it. Of all places I found this at Old Navy. It's still a little big. Glasses are from Old Navy too. She likes to wear them on her head like me. Very cute!
She's starting to really loose her baby fat. It's still in her face. And if she takes after me that will be in her cheeks and jaw forever. Sorry Violet, it's genetic.

It was such a nice day we took our snack outside.

Our Phlox are in full bloom. I did loose my Azalea bush and a few rose bushes so I pulled them out. I was surprised we didn't loose more plants with the kind of winter weather we had. I don't think I'll be replacing the rose bushes. I don't have luck with the full size ones.
