Vivi is very entertaining these days and since this blog is partially our family journal I thought I would share some stories.

COSI- Reed took the girls to COSI on Saturday since I had meetings all day. It was quite an eventful visit, thanks mostly to Vivi. First of all, she was in love with Clifford the Big Red Dog and decided to leave the play area and chase him down the hall (unbeknownst to Reed). Near the end of the visit to COSI they took a trip to Ocean, a favorite place of Vivi's since she looooooooves water. It all went very well until a lady asked Reed if he was missing a daughter who was "swimming". Vivi had stuck her entire head into the Bell Fountains and soaked her clothes. She was not abashed or ashamed at all, just proud that she had a good time! (Later on, Lara somehow caught her finger on a screw and was bleeding all over the place. I'm not sure if Reed will ever take them to COSI by himself again.)

All Hallows Eve at Ohio Village- While I got ready to go I put Vivi in her chair to eat some dinner. As I come back into the kitchen I hear "Oh Vivi. Uh-oh" which does not mean good things. Vivi had dumped her entire bowl of soup over her head. At Ohio Village, where it was dark, Vivi was content to run with abandon down the sidewalk. The girl doesn't care who's around or not around, or who she's with or not with. She has no fear!

Rain storm today-
Notice the wet bum? Need I say more?

Smart girl- Vivi might be an early potty-trainer. She has begun telling us when she needs to poop or when she has a poopy diaper. Tonight Reed asked her if she wanted to sit on the potty, which she did for a little while. As soon as she got up... there was an accident on the floor. :) It was a grand try and I'm very proud of her. She's not a huge talker but she is super smart and with these promising signs I might try potty-training over Christmas break.

We love our Genevieve Noelle!
