Its been far too long. I know I should be updating more frequently however life is certainly busy. Baby #2 is here in like 5 weeks or so. I'm starting to get nervous because we aren't ready. With Violet everything was set when I was 5 months pregnant. This time we are flying by the seat of our pants. We still don't even have a name for him yet. And I'm not naming him Walker Texas Ranger...but I digress.

Violet has gotten much bigger since the last picture. I mean she's 20 months old now. She's saying more words every day and starting to put 2 words together. She's doing great otherwise.

Nick is busy as always. With September starting back up and people not on vacations so much he's busy most nights and on the nights he's home I'm working. That will all change very soon.

Once again with another baby I'm on the cloth diapering mission so to speak. We did it part time with Violet when she was small and I wasn't working. We didn't have a lot for a stash so it was something we only did when we were at home. Then she got too big for the diaper covers and we just never bought any more. There are so many options out there for cloth diapering and its not like how it used to be when my mom did it with pins and those rubber pants and what not. It saved us a lot of money and stretched out the diaper supply we had. I never felt like we had to have piles and piles of diapers incase we got close or even ran out because we had a back up plan. I went to a cloth diapering party (its sort of like pampered chef) and got to see up close and personal some of these diapers. I got a few more and I think we are on our way for this time around. Violet is very interested in them and loves to put them on herself over her clothes. She just thinks she's so funny.

Well, not much is new here. We had a great Easter. Violet had her 1st steak. That was awesome. We are going to be settling into a summer routine. Bowling is almost over for Nick, choir is almost over for me, and soon it will be summer and We'll have 2 nights free unless I pick up hours at work. We'll see.

Its getting warmer here and Violet needs weather appropriate PJs. We have some nice flannely ones but they are too warm for the apt at night. So we went and couldn't find any that were decently priced. I've even checked the salvation army store. I think everyone is looking for jammies.

Violet took her first spill the other day. It has healed nicely but here's the damage.

It may be the first but won't be the last. Its already healed. She didn't pick at it at all. I was surprised.

Things got a little busy

That is an understatement. My last update was December??!! Gosh who's running this thing?

I guess it makes sense. December is when I switched stores. I'm back working at Starbucks and I was working at a store downtown. That didn't work at all. So in December I switched to the store that is not even 1 mile from our house. Its been nice because I don't spend so much time in traveling...but instead now I can spend that time working. I work many more hours than I did before which is nice but makes life hectic. January came and went so fast. Then February flew by! Violet's birthday was amazing. Everyone had fun even though we were in the middle of a snowstorm. From Thursday (her actual birthday) to Saturday (her party) we ended up with a total of 15inches of snow. GAH!!! But we still went all out and people braved the weather and had a great time. There's some more pictures on flickr but enjoy the one's at the bottom!

The birthday girl in her dress!

Yes I made the cakes. It took for ever but I LOVE them.

I think it was pretty good.
