Vivi is the best toddler on Instagram who belongs to me. The kid makes faces for days, does the silliest things and her relationship with her sister is worth a thousand words alone. I could post a photo of the most amazing sunset ever seen and it still wouldn’t get as many likes as Vivi doing something Vivi does best, which is being a toddler. When based on likes alone, people follow my family on Instagram for my kids. I try really hard not to abuse my feed with gratuitous photos of my cats, feet and face but there are times when I may be a little too liberal with the toddlergrams. You see, while I love Instagram for sharing photos with the world, I love it even more as a way to curate the best moments which I make into hardcover books every two months. My shelves are quickly filling up with little square books holding every Instagram photo I’ve taken. I started a year ago, and while I don’t know how many photos I’ve taken, I know that Vivi has grown from a baby to toddler on Instagram and it’s fun to look back at all the little things she’s done and how she’s changed.
These last two months were no exception, with the weather going from hot to cold to hot again and Vivi testing the two year old waters, she has been a joy most days and a terror on the others. The following photos are an accurate representation of what life is like with Vivi around.
