Dear Violet,

You love your dad, and the way you look at him brings me close to tears. You think he is the funniest guy in town. Every morning you wake up and watch him get ready for work. You catch his eye, and he stops putting on his tie, bends down and plays with you for a minute. You've recently learned how to 'anticipate' a tickle, and he has so much fun watching you laugh and laugh while he tickles your belly. If he's in the room, you're smiling from ear to ear, and watching every move he makes. It's such a joy to watch, and your dad and I talk all the time about how we're living the best years of our life right now, with you.

This is you this morning, watching dad put on his shirt and tie- you can just see the trail going from your eyes to the part of your brain that says "I like him!"

We still go up to the office all the time to help dad out, and you get restless after a while, but you are so patient, and your dad LOVES to have you up there to play with you when there's no one else there.

Here's you two goofing off in the exam chair.

You fell asleep at 7pm tonight, which was pretty early... it's now almost 1:30am, and you've just woken up and are sitting in my lap right now, wide awake. I hope you decide to go back to bed soon!
