Violet Mae turns six months!

she loves taking morning naps in mommy and daddy's bed
 Violet Mae is one very busy girl.
I can already tell she is desperately trying to keep up with her big sis.
At 5 months old she has already sprouted first two bottom front teeth and is trying to chew on anything she can get her hands on. She loves trying to talk (sounds more like a squawk if you ask me), she loves laughing at her sis, reading her books, playing with her feet, sitting in her bumbo seat and is even trying to figure out how to crawl. She reaches and squirms her little body and will even bring her knees under her bum to scoot forward. It won't be long. This little girl is a mover and a shaker and constantly keeps me laughing. 
Happy 6 months little Violet.
We love you!

Happy Easter!

I must say this Easter was pretty freakin' amazing. Especially for the kids!
It might as well have been Christmas. Multiple baskets of goodies, tons of chocolate and presents, Easter egg hunts and even a visit from the Easter bunny. Gosh, its good to be a kid.
This past weekend started out with a bang. Penelope had an Easter egg hunt at school and for dinner we hung out with our friends at Arnoldi's. On Saturday the Easter bunny made a quick stop to say hello to the girls because he just couldn't resist and even Penelope's friend Sam got to meet him. Sunday we spent the morning at church and then had some of the family over for some crawfish etouffee! and yes, even another egg hunt and visit from our friend the Easter bunny or "big bunny" as Penelope likes to call  him. ;)
Happy Easter!

Penelope couldn't stop stuffing her face!


Penelope and Violet had matching outfits this year. I ordered them off of Etsy. P's was a dress and Violet's was a cute romper. Violet even had crochet bunny slippers and a bunny bonnet! So cute!
