Our Labor Day weekend consisted mostly of naps and scratching things off our honey do list.  We finally hung up our family growth ruler in the kitchen.  (I've also added it to our Etsy shop.)  Now we just have to get Violet to stand still so we can mark her height.

We also took a little day trip to see some family.  Violet has been doing impressively well in her carseat this past week.  I've been putting her little stuffed animal fox in her lap and she pets its little face while we drive.  Cutest. Thing. Ever.  The first time she laid eyes on that thing, she was all giggles, so obviously we had to get it for her.  I'm not positive, but I think she thinks it's a cat, which definitely would explain her fondness of it.  She also loves her little pink cat, dubbed Cuddles Kitten, because it's easy to carry while she's walking.

It was so nice having Jon off an extra day.  Violet adores him and the extra pair of hands definitely makes the day go a little smoother.  I'm sad the three day weekend has ended, but fall is just around the corner which means Violet's birthday, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year are all going to be here before you know it!
