The Mavens of Mayhem

Okay, so you wouldn’t know if from looking at these pictures because cuteness is distracting, but these two little people are giving us a run for our money.

Here is AJ feeding King Henry

Here is his expensive organic baby food. The little Booger refuses to eat anything homemade.

He knows he’s being a booger. Henry is okay with that.

This is Violet with her dollhouse.

Here is her sweet smiling face. In case you’re wondering, the side affected by Bells Palsy is the side that looks normal. When she smiles, her eyes basically close. It’s pretty adorable.

Thankfully, Violet’s Bells Palsy is almost completely gone. I am very relieved and thankful that we don’t have another battery of tests to look forward to. I think it affected AJ and I more than it affected Violet, as evidenced by the number of times she told us, “Dentist not yucky, Dentist nice!” So maybe she has the whole doctor/dentist thing switched up. For the record, last time she went to the dentist she screamed hysterically when we tried putting her in the dentist chair and the poor dentist tried to console her with a toy. The next time she went to the “dentist” she got her pants pulled down and a needle stuck in her leg. We were a little perplexed then that at 2:30 in the morning at Children’s Hospital, she would all of a sudden decide that she actually really liked dentists. I hope this works in our favor with a real dentist.
