Vi's Photo Shoot

When Kris and Lauren visited a few weeks ago we took a couple hours to do a little photo shoot. With Kris and Lol's expertise and equipment, the photos turned out absolutely lovely. It helped that they loved the little subject. :)

Here are a few pictures for a taste of the beautiful work they do.

We absolutely love how they turned out.
Thank you Kris and Lolly! We love you!

Auntie and Uncle Visit

Lauren and Kris arrived on Friday evening. They have been driving up the California coast for a vacation and ended their trip here with us to see sweet Violet.
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!

Marine Corps Ball

That's right, we ventured out for a night. We left Violet with some friends from church and attended the ball. It was held in a beautiful hotel and the evening was great. They had bagpipers calling us into the ceremony and ending the ceremony with music as well. I love bagpipes, as does all my family, so I loved it.

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

Jo and Jeremy were across the room, but we got a pic with them as well.

Happy 234th Birthday Marines!

Biggest Gainer!

Violet gained 1 lb 2 ounces this past week. Praise the LORD! We were getting concerned with her slow weight gain, but God has eased our concerns this week with a huge gain. He is so gracious!

She weighs 7 pounds 4 ounces. Woohoo!

Here She Is...

Soothing Colors

I thought the blog needed a new look. The green was a little too electric.

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.

Love Ya'll!
