A Violet Update.

It's been far too long since I did a Violet update. I have a fully fledged toddler! How on earth did that happen? Violet is now 14 months old and the most hilarious, clever and beautiful little girl. 

Violet has been walking since 11 months so now thinks she's a pro. We're now at the walking as fast as physically possible stage towards anything. I'm convinced she's done a little jog a few times, when she's been charging towards my legs. I felt like the walking stage would be more difficult than crawling. However it has its pros and cons. She loves walking independently, which is great in open spaces, like the park or at play groups. But in the middle of Tesco it's pretty tough to manage your shopping and a toddler pinching all of the food from the shelf!

Violet's current interests are books, books and more books. This little lady is obsessed with sitting and looking at the pictures and getting myself or Jonathan to read to her. Her favourite types of books are the tiny board style books, I think probably because they're easy to carry around and aren't as flimsy. Thank goodness for charity shop book bargains, we could easily open a library with the amount of books we have. 

And if we're not inside reading books, we're outside exploring. Violet's love for the outdoors has never wavered. She loves nothing more than being able to run around a park or play with the leaves on the floor. We've invested in a puddle suit from Lidl so she can splodge and get as muddy as she likes, and her clothes are still clean and dry. I do need to find some wellies to fit her little feet too!

Violet is "talking" more and more everyday. Her vocabulary of real words isn't the most extensive but she babbles away practicing noises pretty much all day. She also repeatedly grunts at you until you do whatever it is she wants, which is hilarious but I guess it's just her way of communicating. She can currently say "hiya", "og" AKA "dog", "shhhh" for "shoe" and also "moos" like a cow on demand! 

I love watching her little personality develop as she gets bigger. She literally does something new everyday and it's quite amazing to see. She never fails to make me laugh until my stomach hurts. And I love that she now chooses to come over and sit on my knee for a cuddle, even though she's the most independent and confident little lady I know. 

I love you to the moon and back Violet Grace, stay curious my darling girl.
