Violette is now sitting up very well. Her favorite spot is a really long tuft of grass in our back yard by the bird feeder where she is thoroughly entertained by birds, cats, dogs and the kids running around everywhere. Yesterday as I was cleaning out our yard, I felt truly relaxed and happy for the first time I had moved in. Even though I was doing work, it was work I actually wanted to do and enjoyed. I am surrounded by the beauty of the earth, my darling children, great neighbors and animals all over the place. I couldn't ask for more. Violette is such a sweet and happy baby and I am so excited to raise her on a farm.
