I have had Violet's birthday date planned for a very long time. The park and Steak and Shake. The park because that is all she really cares about and it would be fun for us to watch her play and focus on just one little person. Steak and Shake because about 3 years ago, Jason and I went there on a date to get coffee for him and a shake for me. It was an extra special date because as we sat there, Jason let me know that he was fully on board with having a fourth baby. I was beside myself with joy and cried a bit at his good news. Of course, I knew it was coming because I know him well but wasn't sure when I would hear those beautiful words.
We found out we were pregnant with this little lady very shortly after that date and I decided that day that we would one day take her to the same Steak and Shake where her story began...
She had to bring Elmo with her of course.
She is her Daddy's girl.
She loves to rip out her bows randomly and take a ton of hair with it so I am constantly putting it back in and reminding her not to pull them out.
We took her to try out a new park after we ate lunch. She loved this green slide so much.
On our way back to the car, there was a dog that caught her eye and she could not stop staring and talking about it.
Words cannot express the joy this little rascal brings to our lives. I am so thankful that Jason decided he definitely wanted a fourth baby and so happy that Violet is that baby.
