She is 3 Years Old

Yesterday my blonde hair, blue eyed little girl turned 3. It feels surreal. She is the loveliest, spunkiest, smartest little girl I know. And to imagine that 3 years ago I had just given birth to her makes my heart so full of love.

Last Saturday we had a family birthday party for Violet. Almost all of her grandparents were able to attend, and Violet was over the moon with happiness! Her only request? A purple birthday cake...

Nathan came up with the brilliant idea of making a Red Velvet cake and adding blue food coloring to the recipe to make the cake purple. It went over like gang busters! I wish that I had snapped a picture of the inside of the cake.

Here's to you, miss Violet Clementine. We adore you. Your family loves you. And every day you surprise your father and I with your intelligence, affectionate heart, and your extremely vivacious personality. I am so proud of you, my daughter. You will be such an excellent big sister to Lucy.

Love, Mommy
