How is our little nugget one already!? She has grown and changed so much in the past year, and I have loved looking back on all of her teeny tiny baby pictures this past week. I have been all kinds of emotional (more so than usual), and find myself thinking about Piper’s delivery (which you can read HERE) and our first few weeks with her when I’m falling asleep at night. It feels like forever ago, but also like it was just yesterday. If I think hard enough, I can feel all the emotions and smell and the smells from those first few weeks of her life. Weird? Maybe. I’ve loved how every stage carries it’s own joys and adventures, and life with our Piper girl just keeps getting better and better.
At 12 months, she can say “mama” “mooooom” “dada” “dog” “uh-oh” and “thank you.” Whenever she hands us her toys we always say “thank you!” So now, when she hands anything to anyone, she immediately says “thank you.” It’s seriously the cutest thing ever. She just started taking steps, and will take 3-4 steps at one time. It’s definitely not her preferred method of transportation, and at this point she would still rather crawl everywhere. She can sign “more” and “dog” (sometimes), but will not sign “please” for the life of her. She loves bananas, avocado, and sweet potatoes, and is still not a fan of broccoli or cauliflower…we’ll get there ;). She really is the happiest baby and waves hi and bye to every one! We feel so lucky to call her our own, and unbelievably grateful that we have been given the gift of raising and loving her.
Happy Birthday Piper Rose! We love you!!!!
