She is my proxy niece, as I like to call her. And I am her proxy aunt. She belongs to my cousins Sam and Lindsay. She is about six months old and sitting up, giggling, rolling over, being silly and covering her head with blankets. Her name is Violet Geneva Packard. She has such chubby legs that you can't even wrap your hand around them; her cheeks look like they've been stuffed with cotton balls and her belly is rotund and healthy. If you put her on her stomach, she kicks her chubby legs around like she's swimming and she looks up at you like "What was that for???".
Today she is a little sick with a cold, but she is still the happy, pretty baby that I have been playing with for six months. She has a fever, a cough, runny nose, sore throat and tired little body, but she is still managing to giggle when you coo at her and downright laugh when you start talking in a baby voice.
My friend Jamie Pearson is pregnant with baby number two. Her maternity picture ideas came from Pinterest. Caught ya, James!!! But alas, they are super cute and her other little boy is holding a chalk board that says "34 weeks". His face is perfect. He is the perfect little boy... I think. Am I right Jamie?
