Things are going wonderful for her and the doctor is happy with her growth and overall health. She did receive 4 vaccinations on Thursday and that made for a sad little baby. Thankfully, she did not have a fever or any other symptoms that evening. She is a healthy little one. We have been so blessed to have her be so healthy. With a newborn in flu season, every mother wonders what the first few months will look like. Tomorrow she turns 11 weeks and God has been good to us in protecting her from any colds or viruses. God has been just plain good to us overall! We are very blessed!
We are expecting Grandma and Grandpa Good to arrive this week for the holidays. We are excited to share Vi Pie with them. This will be the first time for them to meet her, and there couldn't be a better time. She is so interactive, alert and personable. We are loving the time with her ourselves.
Daniel's brother and family arrive this next weekend so we are looking forward to a wonderful holiday with family.
Violet is excited to meet her extended family!

We enjoyed our night out together but when we were heading home it was amazing the longing to hold Violet that overwhelmed me. It is truly a blessing that God has given her to us and put such a love in our hearts for her. Let's just say it was good to hold her again.

Here are a few pictures for a taste of the beautiful work they do.
We absolutely love how they turned out.

We spent most of our time home with Violet, but one day we ventured out to the seashore. Beautiful day!
W also did a little photo shoot with Vi Pie because Kris and Lolly are amazing photographers. We had to take advantage of their equipment and their willingness to snap photos of Violet. I will post some soon.
We loved having you here!

We sat next to the dear Reynolds family for the ceremony and dinner so of course that meant photo-op.

Unpacking pre-maternity clothing today...hmm a little discouraging, yet exciting to see the clothes I haven't worn since around April.
I will post more of Violet later. We are constantly busy trying to fatten her up. The weight gain at the last doctors's appointment was not as high as we wanted so we have been busy eating. It is more like the Biggest Gainer reality show around here. :)
She is sleeping right now. She fills her time with eating, sleeping and sitting in her bouncy chair which she enjoys time in everyday. Simple, sweet life. She is a dear little companion.

I know this one is blurry, but it is a sweet face.
She is holding here head up for quite a long time. She is a strong little one.
We go to the doctor again on Thursday. We are hoping she has gained several more ounces. We think she is starting to put on some weight (i.e. getting little rings around her wrists, fuller little face). We love every little ounce of her.
She is a pretty good sleeper. She occasionally has nights where it seems like she thinks it is daytime and refuses to go back to sleep after feeding despite the amount of coaxing I do in dim light and lullaby mode. We still enjoy those times. She has slept in her crib since we brought her home. I admit I have slept with her on the couch for a few hours in the early morning when she just seems to want to lay on me and I give in to her snuggles.
My mom has been a great help in the evening and mornings, well, all day really. Setting a schedule next week will be difficult after she has gone. We have already been in a nice groove these last 4 weeks. I am looking forward to trying it out without aid...see how it goes.
Here is Vi on the changing table giving a shout out to her Aunties!

She made it quite clear she wanted a diaper change and a sleeper on ASAP!
Sunday afternoon my friend Amaya was finally able to make a visit to meet Violet. Amaya hosted the baby shower that was given for Vi the day before she was born. She had a cold that persisted for the past few weeks and had family in town which delayed her visit. She was itching to meet Vi and finally held her yesterday. She stayed for a couple of hours chatting and holding Vi. Thank you for your visit Amaya. We loved seeing you.
We look forward to many more special visitors in the upcoming months!
