Violet learns to walk with a push-toy

Violet is almost 9 months old already! We're just about 10 days away and I can't believe all the progress that she has made so far this year! Violet has some favorite TV shows/personalities. She really loves Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, and Rachael Ray. She gets really excited when she hears the music and stops whatever she is doing to watch the tv.

Her next Dr. appointment is Friday the 6th and I will definitely post for that. video

Violet's first trip to Belleville, IL



Here is Vi wrapped up all snug and cozy at the Belleville Chili Cook-off. We've gone the past few years and I think its becoming a tradition. Its usually a lot of fun. Violet had never been in such a dense crowd of people and she freaked out when she couldn't see us anymore sitting in the stroller. So I had to hold her for a while. It was about 54 degrees outside. We didn't really sample that much chili for some reason. I was more interested in the funnel cake! Which was awesome!! I think I prefer going during the day though. We went at about 7pm and it was SOOOOO crowded. According to their website 40,000 people came last year. Its only a 2 day event! It was nuts.

Anyway, next year when we go she will be walking and talking. It should be lots of fun. I cant wait!
