2 year check up

We took Piper in for her 2 year check up today to see Dr. Whitaker.
Height:36 1/4 in, 95th%
Weight: 27 lbs 1 oz 50th%
Wow! This girl is going to be tall. I did a height predictor at babycenter.com & it said she would be 5'9. I guess we will see. I am pretty sure she is going to be taller than her momma. I am 5'2 1/2 & Beau is 6'1 1/2.
We also had the flu mist done today. I was a little nervous at first. We don't ever get flu shots. I have had the flu one time. Since it is going around so bad here in Greenwood I thought I might as well get that done for Piper. I definatley don't want her getting it. We haven't heard much of the flu mist. I know it injects live viruses in them. The dr. said she haid a 50% chance of having any symptoms but with most of their patience it has been about 20%. I really hope she doesn't start feeling bad. :( She cried for a second. She didn't want them sticking something up her nose! They gave her 2 suckers & she was happy!! Oh & Dr. Whitaker has a big fish tank in his office. Piper absolutley went crazy! She kept yelling "nemo!" & "I see da yellow fish". She was laughing SO loud. It was precious.
Piper was in the princess room today. She kept saying "you see the ocean". She liked the princess & the castle.
This was in the wal-mart in Fort smith. Piper has had this new obsession with Ronald McDonald since yesterday. She calls him Donald. She saw him sitting on top of the McDonald's on HWY 71 & kept saying " i see the Donald". "He's on the top."
Most of the time she gets tired of me taking her picture but she SO wanted this picture taken.

Who does she look like:Some say her dad some say her mom. Beau & I think she has a combination of both. From the top of her eyes down to the bottom of her nose looks like dad. She has mom's mouth & feet. She has dad's legnth & mom's legs. She even gets the little white spots on her tan legs like I got as a little one. She definatley has mom's hair.

Personality: She has my personality. She can be outgoing but usually has to warm up to people. She has one of the worst tempers I have ever seen in a child. It's not b/c we spoil her, she just has a bad temper!

She loves her mimi! When we are at my mom's Piper clings to my mom. She doesn't let her get out of her sight. She just follows her around & always wants her. She also loves Michael Wayne, my nephew. Anytime we talk about mimi, Piper says "& Michael Wayne".

Favorite toys: She loves cars! She plays racecar with the boys everyday. They get in the kitchen & push the cars, make them crash & go fast. Her Yo Gabba Gabba characters. She loves her tent, playing teaparty, & her kitchen. She also loves playing with balls.

She loves going to the park.

Every Thursday night Beau takes Piper on a daddy daughter date night. It is great! They both enjoy it. It is a good time for them to spend alone time together & a time for me to have my alone time. I am very grateful for this!

She loves Target! When we are on the interstate she always points it out & always wants to go there.

Clothes size: Mostly 24 months now.

Trust in the Lord

My mom has always told me I worry to much. Even as a child. She tells the story of when I had a loose tooth & I couldn't go to sleep b/c I was afraid my tooth would fall out & I would choke on it. Then of course the tooth fairy couldn't get my tooth. Beau also says I worry to much. I don't think God could be any more clear on what he is telling me. He says my sweet Becky, I love you so much. Don't worry about anything!

"Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you." 1 Pet 5:7

"Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done." Phil 4:6

"Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me." John 14:1

"For our present troubles are small and won't last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!" 2 Cor 4:17

"Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock. " Isa 26:4

"Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you." Psa 9:10

"O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge. " Psa 62:8

"Those who listen to instruction will prosper; those who trust the Lord will be joyful." Prov 16:20

"But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me." Psa 13:5

"I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world." John 16:33

This morning on the way to church we were listening to some one speak on not putting your trust in man. Not with anything. God is the only one you can really trust. God has given me confirmation about His trust in so many ways here lately. Something I need! Thank you Lord. I can only do this with your help. :)

Cupcake time!

Piper had a Yo Gabba Gabba birthday party. It turned out really well. We had lots of great people there. We are SO thankful! I tried to plan the birthday party after the razorback game but it didn't work out so well. That was okay. Everyone just ended up watching the rest of the game at our house. Unfortunatley the razorbacks lost to Alabama. Thankfully OU had their bye week so I didn't have to worry about planning around both games.
Piper does not like having all the attention. She got a little embarassed when everyone sang & everyone was staring at her.
I love it!
She was trying to blow out the candle with her sweet sad face.
She is happy now that she can eat her cake!
I just love this face!

I don't know why she started eating her cupcake like this. She never eats anything like this. I am glad she did though b/c it was too cute!
