Piper is 2 & 1/2

Last Saturday my little girl turned exactly 2 1/2. I just can't believe it. She is amazing! Here are some pictures of her at mimi's this last wknd. She was making funny faces.

Mad face

hhmmm, rolling her eyes
She helped mimi make homeade biscuits. She loves helping.

  • Piper weighs about 30 lbs
  • she can count to 20
  • she is a perfectionist. It drives us crazy. We can't do anything right!
  • she scoots her chair up to whatever she needs & helps herself. She sneaks food & things like that.
  • 3-7-10 Piper had her 7 dworfs. She said she was sneezy, mommy was bashful, & daddy was grumpy. HILARIOUS!
  • Yesterday morning she told Dean & Cooper "ya'll are so smart." It was sweet!
  • she loves to sing & dance! She randomly breaks out in a song & dances.
  • she likes to say she is certain people on certain shows. Like Piper is Dora & mommy is boots & mimi is Isa. She will go through the whole list & name them.
  • she always asks what peoples eye color is & their favorite colors. She usually remembers them too.
  • loves La Fiesta & McDonalds.
  • Today I told her thank you & she said "de nada" (that is your welcome in spanish)
  • We were watching Finding Nemo today & I couldn't believe how she had so many lines memorized. (yep too much t.v.)
  • she's a big helper! She thinks she is such a big girl.
  • We pray with her everynight. It is a special moment. I also try & read to her everynight b/c she loves it so much. I cherish that moment with her.
  • Piper will love on me & it's so sweet. She will rub my face or pat my back & it just melts my heart!

Some of our favorite people...

This is Tilsu, he was our head waiter. He laughed everytime someone would say something. We got a kick out of that.
Yaco, our assistant waiter. We really like him. He was a lot of fun.
Here is the card magician. He was AMAZING!!!!
Hunter & Beau with the card guy & the guy who is over all the food.
Can't remember this ladies name but she was awesome! She talked to me & Beau on the 1st day & everytime we would see her after that she would talk to us. She even remembered our names. She is from the Phillipines. On the last day she came up & hugged us. A sweetheart!
All of us with the Magician.
Everynight the waiters went around dancing. Here is Yaco dancing to "apple bottom jeans". He was good! We enjoyed this part.


Cozumel was BEAUTIFUL!!!!!
These things are sorta scary.
This is where we snorkled. Those pics are on the water camera. Pics of them to come soon. We went with the Brinkley's. This was my first time to snorkle. Had to be one of my favorite parts of the trip.

Jared & Grant holding the snakes.
Blue blue water. We love it!
