when i was blessed, my mom spent many-an-hour sewing my little dress for the special occasion. i have always loved it. my sister and i shared a room growing up and on special hooks on each side of the room hung our blessing dresses. it was fun to see the tiny dresses while i got older but years of hanging on the wall had left dust and yellowing behind. when my mom found out i was having a little girl, she pulled the dress out and began restoring it. i am so thankful- she did a fabulous job. violet looked so cute and i thoroughly enjoyed passing on this little heirloom.
when vi was born, it was a freezing february outside which turned into a freezing march which turned into a mild april. so, naturally, we thought that if we blessed her in may the weather would be nice and the kids would have the yard to go nuts in. well... the mild april turned into a freezing may but we went ahead with the blessing regardless. the kids still braved the cold backyard but they were sure to stay bundled.
but we are so thankful to all the friends and family who supported our little family.
i love little violet and all the fun she brings. she is growing up so fast! now that she is feeling better, she is quite the chatterbox. she loves to hear her own voice and she sings all day long. lately, she has discovered a growling noise too. it is also so fun to see cade as a daddy. he is so loving and cute with vi. she lights up when her daddy is there to play. time is flying by!
