S: Memoirs in Violetland- 2011 by Violet Savannah Heider
BC: See ya later!
1: Oh- you're back? Ya- me, too. Good timing- I was just finishing the towels. It has been a CRAZY year! A lot of my predictions came true- talking, walking, running, stairs, and- most importantly- poopies on the potty! I wasn't impressed, but Mom and Dad are quite exited about it. So I suppose I'll continue to do it. Buuuut every once in a while I'll surprise them. They'll get a kick out of it someday.. C'mon- I want to show you what I've been up to....
2: Happy New Year!
3: Just sitting around. | Where is the Baby?
4: There she is!
5: I know it's from last year, but cows are cool. Moo. | Me and Jeter catching a quick nap on Daddy's lap.
6: Did I get some on my face? | I figured the best way to get through this long winter is to sleep through it.
7: Watching football with Daddy... ...patiently awaiting spring. | The babe watching The Babe.
8: After the blizzard of 2011 I knew the only way I would be allowed outside is if Momma was there... ...to take pictures of me if I fell.
9: Me and Banshee have found a common ground. She just stays out of my way. | Hey- I have a joke- How do you make a woman cry?
10: Like THIS!
11: I figure if I eat a popsicle it will, at least, feel like summer. Maybe not. | Me and Jeter... ...patiently awaiting spring.
12: 2011- A Year of Firsts | This year I did a LOT of things for the first time. Here are a few of them. Stairs? No biggie.
13: Oh....Now I have to go back DOWN?!?!? | I climbed up on the couch. | I went to work with Momma. | I got to sit at the big table. | I got my first haircut. And using the potty. (No pics available.)
14: I followed a trail of eggs to..... | ....my basket! | Oh, I don't think so. | I did an Easter Egg Hunt at the park. | Easter- 2011
15: Puzzle time! | Me and Momma... ...patiently awaiting spring.
16: SPRING IS HERE!!! | This is the first time I ever played outside. It sure is big out here!
17: I have discovered that playing outside brings out the inner V.
18: I am a chameleon.
19: I can adapt to any situation necessary.
20: Me and my Daddy (he's the one on the right). | We need one of THESE! | I like the roller slide! | Outside with Grandma.
21: Hot in the shade. | Sometimes I like to kick back by the water. | It's much more fun OUTSIDE the pool. | You go on ahead Momma- I'll catch up.
22: We went to 3 zoos this year in Peoria, Chicago, and Milwaukee. I like the animals, but I like the carousels and trains, too!
24: Don't even think about eating the bubbles... ...they are MINE!
25: I had swimming lessons this year. I walked around in the shallow pool and went swimming in the deep pool with Momma.
26: Cheekie, cheekie!
27: Someone made the pedals too short. | Hint, hint. | Hmm....interesting. | I love playing outside in the sun!
28: A whole bunch of people came over to celebrate my 2nd birthday. Lots of food, cake, presents, and a balloon-making guy made me a mermaid out of balloons! I tried to watch how he did it but I couldn't keep up. Job security.
30: Take me down to Pumpkintown. | Looking for the one. | Found it. | Take me home, driver. | FALL 2011
31: Trick-or-treating with Momma. | I gave candy away, too! Wait...what did I do? | You want my pumpkin? Come and get it. I dare you.
32: Okay folks- I have curly hair. Get over it!
34: During the holidays I ate 2 turkeys, decorated two trees, wrote & visited Santa, and had 2 Christmases. After all of this, I better get those LEGOS.
36: Getting my hair cut with Momma and Leslie. | Reading a book with Grandma. | All smiles. | Piggies! | The 4 H's- Hands Heart Head Heider
37: Hello? | Squishy-fishy! | How long y'been in for? | My first drawing.
38: So that was my 2011. I had a lot of fun, as usual. I have to go and check my emails, but I can't wait to see you all soon. Come over any time and NOT play with my toys. Have a great 2012. I know I will! Love, Violet
