Violet Update

Posted on Sunday, January 17th, 2010 at 10:05 pm

Violet has been getting more and more vocal lately. Even though I cannot understand what she is saying for the most part, its great that she can string these sounds together. She even uses inflections, such as “manymolamnalaaa?” in the tone of “Do you want a peice of my graham cracker?” 

Other times, I can understand her. She says “whoa!” and “wow” appropriately. When I do something she likes she will open her mouth in surprise and shake her head while gasping, like she is so proud of me for putting a silly hat on (par example).

The other thing that is new is she suddenly has got “the beat”. She will suddenly start dancing and the slightest hint of music. Today Phillip started belting out a song in our bedroom, and Violet was with Ivy and I in the living room, Violet just started breaking into this dance… a sort of a be-bopping muppet dance. And by muppets I really mean muppets…not Ivy’s definition of muppets. Because that would just be weird. While be-bopping she will also click her tongue to the rhythm. When you consider her funny little bow legs, it all makes for a very funny show.

The other update is that the girls are now sharing a room, which is going pretty well so far. Well, Masterpiece Theatre is on now…. Return to Cranford… so I will bid you adieu!

    Thank you for the update!! :) I can’t wait to see you guys again – I’m missing EVERYTHING! Next thing you’ll be telling me “So Violet is graduating with her PhD!” :p

    I was wondering if Henry was going to start moving his booty to music, but so far he just imitates us. So, if we look like we’re dancing, then he will, but otherwise, no response to music besides trying to hum along, which is cute in and of itself.
