Sickies and Snuggles

Today I was making Violet a bottle and listening to the boys play with her in her crib.... when I suddenly hear a very disturbing phrase...."Emmett, hold her arms down so she can't move for a second." Well as you can imagine I practically flew to her rescue... and this is what I found.
Giant Dora band-aid
Surprisingly... she really didn't mind, she was smiling and talking away. Apparently she had an ouchie... I could barely make out a scratch but I am grateful that Makray is on top of things.

We have been sick for the longest time... as soon as we get rid of something someone else gets something new and we pass it around. We have made the best of it and have enjoyed laying around watching Christmas shows!
Watching our Christmas movie... violet looks like a creepy little doll next to frosty.
Makray is my right hand man... he is always under foot ready to help with Violet. In all honesty he is a lot of help, he will hold Violet for hours... he is great at finding her binkie for her and she thinks he is the funniest guy in the world.. whenever I can't get her to smile he can!

You may be wondering where little Emmett is in all these snuggles...
He prefers his pig...
In sum... we are great. Violet has reached a Whopping nine pounds at her 12 week check up... she smiles and kind of laughs... and most importantly sleeps !!!TEN!!! hours at night. The boys are feeling better and are looking forward to a visit from SANTA WHOOHOO!!!!

Tonight I was folding clothes... and looked over at Violet who was happily kicking her feet and watching her little hands and she just looked SO much like Makray... that I had to snap a quick picture.
So this is little Violet in a rare dressed down (no bows not sparkles no tulle) pic. She is 10 weeks old 8lbs 10 ozs and cute as a button!
Here is Makray he is 4 weeks in this picture and about the same size... probably slightly bigger than his sister is now. They have such the same little personalities... and are the best of buds. Whenever me and emmett have just had it with Makray's non-stop talking we send him to play with violet. She can listen and play with him all day... and he adores her.
