Violet is 2 months old!

Violet is officially 2 months old!  Before I know it I'll be back to work (3 weeks away...yikes), Thanksgiving and Christmas will come and go and she'll be one!  Time is flying!  

Violet went for her 2 month appointment today and got her first round of vaccines.  She weighed in at 12 pounds and 15 ounces, up just 4 pounds from her birth weight.  She is the 78th percentile for weight.  She was 23 inches long and in the 63rd percentile for height.  She's still wearing size 0-3 month clothes but will soon be stepping up to 3-6 month clothing.  Last week she started wearing size 2 diapers.  Violet sleeps in her crib and has done so consistently since the second week of August.  She was just too noisy to sleep in our bedroom.  She naps in her crib or her car seat becuase as you can imagine with 2 older siblings we are on the go a lot!  Her naps are still kind of random and unscheduled.  I don't want to jinx anything but for the past week she's been going to bed around 8pm and getting up to eat once in her 12 hour night of sleep around 3 or 4ish and goes right back to sleep until about 8am.  Momma could get used to this!  She's still eating Alimentum formula (can't remember if I mentioned this in my prior blog update?  She had a number of bloody stools and we changed her formula and they quickly resolved) due to her milk protein allergy and takes about 4 ounces every 3 hours in the day.  Like I said before, Violet fits right into our crazy, fun filled family.  Her big brother and sister really do love her just about as much as her mommy and daddy.  We are all blessed to have each other.  

We made it to an IU tailgate.  We had absolutely no intentions in taking 3 small children into the game, we're crazy but not stupid! The big kids had fun running around and Violet slept the majority of the 3 hours we were there.  A good family picture is hard to come by these days...we take what we can get!

I snuck up on Vivian feeding her baby, just like I feed Violet.  She is such a good little mommy.

Me at 3 months...I think Violet and I share similar features.  

Vivian asked to hold Violet...Violet obliged.

Vivian and Oliver were in Aunt Mindy's wedding this weekend as the flower girl and ring bearer.  I'm happy to report they both successfully made it down the aisle!  

Violet joined in for a little bit of the picture action.  

Hugs for Aunt Mindy!

Yep, this is it...the best family picture we could get...better luck next time!  Cheers!
