A couple days ago we celebrated Violet's 1/2 birthday. She got a half cake like her sister did on her half birthday. She was allowed to lick the beaters and the bowl from the frosting making and delighted in all he chocolate goodness. When I told her she was two and a half she acted like an actress receiving an award. I wish I could have caught it on video. I love this beautiful little person more than I can stand and I can't believe two and a half years have gone by already!
