Back to School Haircuts

Now that I look at the pics up close I'm laughing at the younger twos' forced smiles. How dare I interrupt their puzzles!

2 Month Old Violet

Violet had her 2 month appointment this morning (with 3 shots). Nobody can say that this girl doesn't eat- 12lbs 9oz and 22 inches long! Course the problem will be in 2 months if her weight curve drops like the other girls. Time to see if our new docs will freak out or not.

New Room Arrangements

Maybe we're jinxing ourselves, but Violet has been sleeping so well lately, we decided to move Moira over into her room. This has always been the plan, but I had initially thought we'd wait till around Christmas when Violet was older. We didn't know how Moira would take it- going from having 2 older sisters with her to only a baby. Would she be scared? Would she get in the baby's crib? Would she play with her toys all night? Would she even like her bed? Well, we got the answer to the last question very quickly:
In fact, she wouldn't let anyone touch HER bed and we had to convince her to get out of it to get changed into her pjs! And when Kaylon was talking to her about being in Moira's room, she quickly corrected him- "MY room."Bedtime went smoother than we could have hoped. The only thing we heard after about 10 minutes was (man this is sad) Moira calling out, "Goodnight Liliana! Goodnight Grace!" The girls didn't hear her so there wasn't a response. When we checked on them soon after that, they were all soundly asleep, not the norm in our house (typically it can take up to an hour for them to stop playing around). And when I got up at 4am to feed Violet, Moira didn't stir. She also didn't climb into the crib (yet), for which we are grateful.
Liliana's not a dull one; when she realized that Moira was leaving she asked Kaylon when (not if) Grace was moving to the grandma room. Twice. Good try my girl, but I highly doubt that you'll have your own room before you go to college!

Violet's Arizona Visit

Violet and I flew to Arizona last week to introduce her to the family. Violet was an amazing flying companion- she slept both flights! We had a great time hanging out with grandmas, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Makes me really wish that Kaylon could find a job in Scottsdale!
