Violet and Jack love to play camp out with Dad. Every weekend our floor is cluttered with pillows and blankets, the couch is turned into an airplane (so Violet can visit Aunt Sarah in California), and her suitcase is packed full of the essentials. If some article of clothing turns up missing I always know were to look first. Jack loves to follow along in any game Violet comes up with, it is really adorable to watch their growing bond. I am however waiting for the day when Jack comes up with games and wonder how well Violet will do in the follower role. Another favorite game is school although that mainly consists of pushing chairs around the house for "desks". Since she has not had any experience with school she does not quite know what to do with her assembled "class".
On December 4th, we welcomed Violet and Jack's first cousin Bianca Nicole! After a long night in the hospital waiting room Luke emerged around 8:30am to tell all of us anxious waiting family members the exciting news...a girl. Stacie and baby were doing well and resting comfortably. We took a quick peek, then went home to let everyone recuperate; including us. Congratulations guys, the fun is just beginning.
