Violet in the Violets

The violets have been in bloom in our backyard for two weeks. The first morning I walked out and saw them, I imagined taking pictures of our baby girl surrounded by purple violets. Of course, I had no idea if we would have a girl, but I was sure hoping for it!

Today I finally got to take the photos I have been dreaming about! Of course, the sun was at the worst possible angle for photos so they really didn't turn out. But I will keep trying until I get them! Plus, it's awfully cool this week and not all that ideal for photographing a baby outside. But I told Shawn he cannot mow until I get my pictures!

Vy and I had a great day at home together -- she is such an easy baby! She slept from 8:30 until 2! Who knows if she'll repeat that tomorrow, but it gave me plenty of time to get all the Easter candy bagged up and put away, all the Easter toys organized and even time to go through both boys' dressers and remove all their small clothes and reorganize them for summer!

Then my mom called and wanted to come over to see Violet, and she offered to pay for supper if we'd pick it up so that eliminated the need to cook supper! Whoohoo! Thanks, Mom! And she also brought the most adorable little dress and bloomers that she bought for Vy in New Orleans. They are so cute!!! I can't wait to see her in them! After she left, Shawn's sister Denise and her husband Mark stopped by and they too brought a big bag of clothes for Violet! So many cute little outfits waiting to be worn! And yesterday Shawn's sister Sandy sent home some really cute outfits. And on Saturday, my sister-in-law Keri sent home some! Violet needs more closet space. So far, I am encroaching on Shawn's side of the closet. He doesn't seem to mind. :)

A few more pics I took today:

 Look at this chubby little thigh! Don't you just want to kiss it!

That's all for today. Hope you had a good Monday. We'll talk to you tomorrow!!

Oh, one more thing. Bo's daycare decorated Easter eggs last week. Today the kids voted on who made the top three eggs -- and Bo was one of the winners! I'll take a picture of his egg for you to see tomorrow. I'm very proud of him! He's been so good about Violet. He just wants a little mama time every night to sit on my lap with me. He's such a sweetheart. And good ol' Mazy! He's always willing to hold Violet and compliment her clothes and tell us how cute she is. My little family is the best!
