More About Violet, For Lack Of Anything Else To Write About

Violet and her neighbor Lily are six-and-a-half months old already. They're almost at the age (seven months) where they're still babies, while no longer being "new babies". It's a great age. Violet can almost sit up, but she still doesn't move around much. She grabs for things, but can't really destroy anything yet. She makes cute noises and is usually quite happy, maybe because she's still not teething. And her diapers are big enough to hold her once-every-other-day poop without leaking. She's good at going out, she smiles at strangers, she loves her stroller, she falls asleep easily in her car seat. She's never been sick. She's getting better at eating from a spoon. And she always sleeps nine to eleven hours a night. Plus, she's still adorable.

Perhaps we were blessed with an unusually good baby, but so far this parenting thing has been way easier than I had been led to believe it would be. Am I the only one who thinks this? I kind of feel like I am...
