Poppyseed

Oatmeal and Lola welcomed their first child, a daughter, on April 23, 2012.  Until the birth, the baby was referred to as Poppyseed, mainly because the gender was a surprise until then.  Oatmeal was certain it would be a boy, but Lola’s intuition was right and it was indeed a baby girl.  They named her Violet Jane, but she remains Poppyseed on the blog.

She didn't stay little for long.

She may be small, but as her two year old portraits illustrate, her attitude is anything but!

As of August 2014, Poppyseed wasn't the baby anymore!
