violet LOVES animals.
one of her favorite books is called "baby animals" by gyo fujikawa.
(these are mama's favorite baby books too).
she always laughs when we make the animal noises.
she went on her first pony ride last month
and thought it was the neatest thing!
she loves taking outings to the pet store,
to watch the puppies play and talk to the parrot.
she wants a puppy so bad!
she squeals when they bark,
and she lets them lick her all over.
we had the most fun when we went to visit my friend's chickens.
she sat and laughed at them as they clucked and strutted around.
i promise her someday we'll have a chicken coop of our own.
i long for the day where we have a big enough yard!
and here's a short clip of her cracking up at the chickens...
