Violet At 18 Months

It is hard to believe, but Violet is 18 months old today! She is becoming very independent and very talkative. She is also mischievous enough that even Eddie has started calling her "a menace." Violet has also learned to say "No, Biolet" when she's doing something naughty.

So sweet and innocent... or is she?
I am pleased to report that Violet is finally getting some teeth. She now has 8 teeth, including 3 molars. These have proved very helpful since Violet loves food and wants to try every food she sees. Her newest favorite is the sandwich. She won't eat the ingredients individually, but in sandwich form, she will hork it down as quickly as she can... unless you try to help her. Then she becomes enraged and refuses it until you leave her alone. She also loves all sorts of treats. She recently discovered marshmallows and insisted on eating her own s'more by herself. We have to be really careful about mentioning the word "cookies" in her presence because once the thought enters her head, she won't stop shrieking "COOKIES!" until she has had as many as possible.

Violet talks a lot. Her pronunciation of some words are really funny because instead of just saying the beginning of the word, she will say the end of it. For example, instead of saying that a dog says "woof," Violet just says "fff! fff!"

Soon to come to Violet's list of accomplishments: potty training. I am hopeful that starting this early will result in a more agreeable process than it did with Eddie. Today was the first day I let her hang out with no pants for a couple of hours. The best part is that Eddie and his friend Isaac were sitting on the couch, watching a movie, and didn't even notice this:

She's so cute! It's great that she talks so much. My daughter is a couple months older and only says a few words! I hope you are doing great. :) Good luck with the potty training too. I know people who have potty trained about the same age and it worked out well for them.
