Little Peanuts

Hey Y'all

I know, I know, I've been really absent.

I've got a million excuses. You don't want to hear them. Same story, different day.

So, I took some pictures last night of my littlest Peanut, Violet. She's growing up, yo. She'll be 3 years old next month. Can you believe it? Next month will mark 3 years since I welcomed her arrival after a hurried and chaotic 3 hour labor.

Last night she was sleeping so beautifully and I wanted to capture her. I want to remember her like this forever. She's sweet, young, and still chubby in all the cute places. She is still working on getting her words out right, and says things like "eye-kee" for ice cream and she refuses to call a cow by it's name, instead insisting it's called a "moo-moo".

She's also best friends with her big sister Sally. They do everything together, from giggling to fighting, playing with each other to stealing toys from each other. They are typical sisters, through and through.

Here they are going down a dirt pile in our front yard together. On sleds. Because up here in Wisconsin, we're chomping at the bit for some snow. (ha ha)

She's my little peanut. I want to keep her little forever. I know it's my job to help her grow up into a sweet and amazing young lady. But it's just so hard to let her quit needing me. And yet, at the same time, I'm ready to be needed less.

The world is hers for the discovering. I'm just lucky to get to watch it all unfold.
