My Piper

There are a few things about my sweet girl that I want to remember. Next year Piper will be a big sister. I want her to know that I love her so much. I thank God for her everyday. I love everything about her & wouldn't want her any other way :) She is perfect! She could NEVER be replaced. Her daddy feels the same way.

When she doesn't get her way sometimes she will say "Oh come on!". It is hilarious!

We pray with Piper everynight. That is a special time for us. We let her know how much Jesus loves her.

Piper is very bossy & controlling. She is very much a leader. Very headstrong.

Sometimes when Piper gets embarrassed or is sad she makes this pouty face that absolutley breaks our hearts. You can't help but pick her up & love on her.

Piper knows how to spell STOP. We are working on her name. When we write it down for her she tells us what letter is next.

I put Piper in a size 6 shoe this week. She weighs a little over 28 lbs.

She knows that red means stop, green means go, & yellow means slow down.

She loves to color & write. She can make circles. She also loves her kitchen stuff.

She loves Dora, Princess stuff, & Cars.

We think she looks like her mommy (yay)

I think Piper's love language is quility time like her momma. She loves playing with people. She can play by herself but really loves being with people.

Yesterday Piper was running around in her little panties. I told her I just love her little bottom. Later on in the day she had her back to me & her head turned toward me & said "you like my bottom". Too cute!

Everyday when daddy gets home, Piper is so excited to see him! She runs & hugs him & yells "daddy!"

I think Piper will make such a good big sister. She loves to help & she is so motherly. She amazes me everyday!

This hat & tutu was made by Gina Scantling. It is absolutley precious!
Big cheesin here!

Piper Annabeth Ames, our little princess. We love you so much!

Piper is going to be....

....a big sister!!! We are so excited! I am 6 weeks today. I have been feeling really good. My boobs have been very sore. Even more so than when I was pregnant with Piper. I haven't felt sick & hopefully I won't start feeling that way. :)I've cramped a little but not lately. I go to the dr. on the 6th. The computer says my due date is Aug. 23rd. We will find out for sure when I go to the dr.
This is how we told my mom & step dad we were going to have another baby. They were so happy. We told them the first night we were with my brother in the hospital. It gave everyone some happy news!

Thank you Lord! We are so thankful! Please pray for our baby & my pregnancy.

We didn't get to do our Christmas until today. Piper & I have been out of town since Dec. 18th. WOW that is a long time! Just got home tonight.
Here is Piper's present from Santa!
Daddy helping
Me & P with our presents. My new pink hot rollers! Love them! Piper with her Dora tin box & 2 dvd's. She loved it!
Here is a story behind these blocks.....Piper was with me when I bought these blocks. I told her they were for Michael Wayne for Christmas. She didn't say anything else about them. Tonight when she opened it up she said "What? No this is Michael Waynes!" What a memory she has!!
Lots of books! She loves books!
Beau really wanted a beefstick & cheese. Merry Christmas Beau!
Piper's new book. Thought it was very appropriate! :D
I wanted a small vacuum that I could just whip out anytime! Great job Beau! :)
She loves kitchen stuff so we got her an apron & some potholders. Too cute!
I think we do this picture every year! A family picture in front of our little Christmas tree. Beau & I have done it since our first Christmas! :)
Hope everyone had a GREAT Christmas!!!! We sure did!

Playing in the snow!

It snowed on Christmas Eve which left us with a beautiful white Christmas this year! We were in Antlers & came home 3 days later to see that Greenwood had more snow than Antlers. We immediatley had to get Piper bundled up to play in it. She LOVED it!!!
Beau throwing a snowball at me!
Beau taught her how to make a snowball & she kept throwing them at us!

Our house 3 days after it snowed.

My mom & her grandbabies

My mom is a wonderful grandmother. The kind that has to sleep with her grandbabies even if it's on a pallet in the living room floor. The kind that lets them stay up too late & have just about anything they want. She lets them have carebear fruit snacks & whales to eat. The kind that absolutley loves her grandbabies & would do anything for them! Piper & Michael Wayne are so blessed to have a grandmother like my mom!
Memaw's babies!
Love them!
My mom, Piper, & Michael Wayne.
They have lots of fun together!!
These are the warm outfits memaw got them for Christmas.

Christmas with mom & Wayne

This is Piper's present from Grandma & Papa Baker. They were a pair of brown adorable boots!
Memaw & Piper opening presents. Here is a funny story about Piper this night:
Piper had her present that my mom got her. She was in a bad mood & screamed "that's not right". Then she knocks the present over. (yeah if she was older she would have definatley gotten in trouble for that)

We got Michael wayne a bunch of the cars from the movie "CARS". He loves them so much! Here is a funny story about him:
I handed Michael Wayne his present from us. There were clothes on top. He says "here let me get these clothes out of the way so I can get to the present". Good thing I didn't just get him clothes, he would have been completly disappointed.

Joe & Kayla
Aunt KK & Joe got Piper the Dora backpack. You know she LOVES that!

Piper & Michael Wayne had SO much fun playing together. They were running around like crazy little kids! I think these two will continue to be close cousins. They love eachother SO much!
