Or, rather, she was 2 weeks ago. We were in Venice, and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind since then. But better late than never. Here’s what she’s been up to:

  • When asked what color something is, she always replies, “Blue!” Doesn’t matter if it’s actually pink or orange or yellow. She doesn’t seem to mind being corrected. And some colors, like orange, she seems to have down. She claims that blue is her favorite.
  • Colors, numbers, letters — she’s mastering all of these fairly well now. Counting, especially, in both English and Greek.
  • This girl has Potty Power! We’ve been watching this silly potty training video for the past few months, and it’s all she can talk about. She asks to sit on the potty all the time, and today she didn’t want to wear a diaper. We plan to start potty training after we get back from our next trip, and she is READY.
  • Violet loves anything that is new. So different from her brother, who always preferred the familiar. Anything new we introduce her to becomes her new favorite thing…until she quickly tires of it and we have to come up with something else. But when it comes to books, she’ll read the same ones over and over. She’s really into Pete the Cat right now, and Llama Llama.
  • Michael Jackson, Liam’s latest obsession, has become Violet’s, as well. The minute Liam plays his favorite song, Violet lights up and shouts, “Michael Jackson! Beat It! Want to dance!” And then she’ll start boogying down in that adorable way toddlers do. She’ll even try to moonwalk. It. Is. Adorable.
  • We are still nursing twice a day, despite my best efforts. We had it down to one, but she refused to drop that morning session after about a week. Looks like we may be weaning and potty training at the same time. We’ll see how that goes.
  • She’s also discovered TV in a big way. She loves watching Care Bears, Peppa Pig, and Sesame Street. But she’s also happy to watch shows Liam prefers, like White Rabbit and Mythbusters.
  • Violet is getting quite opinionated about…everything. What she’s wearing, where we’re going, what she’s eating or drinking. Even where I’m sitting — often times she come up behind me, places her little hands on my back, and grunts, “Mommy, move over there!” Ok, deary.
