Piper 1 year!

We have so much going on lately…one of which was Piper’s first birthday last week!   She is such a happy little girl…totally not a baby anymore.  I don’t know where the past year has gone but it has been great!

We went to Ohio last weekend to celebrate with my family.  My sister made this beautiful cake for Piper, topped with her favorite character from Yo Gabba Gabba!  Thanks Lauren 🙂

Getting Some Much Needed Exercise

Piper is now 9 months…where has the time gone?!?!  Oh and she is keeping me busy!

2 Months

Piper is now 2 months old!  How crazy!  Time is flying by.  She is growing so big and changing so much!  Her 2 month checkup was postponed so I am not too sure what she weighs now.  She is so happy and so cute I just can’t get over it!  She laughs and smiles all the time.  She has started reaching out and touching her toys.  She is happiest early in the mornings and late at night.  I didn’t know that you could be a morning and night person!  She is still sleeping all night long!  She now sleeps for about 8 or 9 hours at night.  She doesn’t nap well through the day unless I hold her.  She doesn’t like to be put dow much and recently doesn’t tolerate anyone except mom.  She loves taking baths and loves music.  She looks a lot like her daddy.

Here are some pics of my sweet girl!



When I take the time to load some videos I will post those too!

1 Month

I can’t believe that Piper is already a month old! It is very bitter sweet for me. I love that she is getting bigger but I hate that she is no longer a new little baby.

She has been the best baby! She is not fussy unless she is hungry. Since the first night she has been sleeping all night long for me! In the beginning she would feed around 1am and then sleep until 6am. Now she is eating around 11pm and sleeping until 6:30am. The biggest struggle that we have had is that she doesn’t like to sleep by herself. She has been sleeping in bed with me most nights. During the day she would wake up if I would put her down. We were not getting anything done around the house and I was not getting much rest. That also has lots to do with the fact that I haven’t updated my blog very much.

Piper is now letting us put her down more often and is even sleeping most nights in her bed. She has been great whenever we take her out anywhere. She just sleeps the entire time we are out.

Here are a few pictures of her.
This was after her first bath. She hated every minute of it.  She was 4 days old here.


Here she is at 3 weeks old.  She is really liking her baths now!

I have always been very surprised at how alert she is and how well she can hold her head up.  She lays on her belly and just looks all around.  One of my favorite things to watch her do is interact with Blake.  She puckers up and gives him kisses.  It is the sweetest thing ever!


Here she is giving dad kisses!

Chloe seems to really like her.  She sniffs her and licks her but up until now she has freaked out if we put Piper to close to her.  Today she decided that she wanted to snuggle with her.  I have been telling Chloe that they would soon be best friends.


So sweet!


Here she is 1 month old.  My baby is growing up too fast already!

What a Face

Someday I might have time to write her birth story…for now here are a few pictures!


She has just been wonderful!  She is very alert and expressive.  I think we could sit all day and watch all the faces she makes!
