2017 - Sweet P

Well, we missed Piper turning 2.5 so here is an update on Piper.

This kid is SMART, and i don't mean, she is reading and solving complex equations (yet), but she has the proclivity to solve complex problems. She can read a situation, play Monopoly Junior alongside her sister without missing a beat. She asks the most inquisitive questions and sometimes she does it to be funny but other times, you can tell her wheels are really turning. She thinks about things rather than accepting it at face value.

She calls an avocado a "Catado" (sometimes but is determined to say it the right way despite our protests). She loves her baby doll, George Rosie, and has replaced her pacifier with thumb sucking. So much for trying to wean her. She also has several stuffed dogs, cats and rabbits named Zelda!

Piper LOVES to jump at you from a surface (like a chair, couch, table) and shout  CANNONBALL! She is an excellent swimmer and is even able to do a little butterfly. I kid you not. she likes to dive, which is more like a belly flop, but the kid is impressive. She plans on trying to join the swim team this summer

Piper is afraid of sledding but will do it anyways, you just have to sort of force her, but she enjoys it. She loves to sing and has many songs memorized. She also likes to pray on her own and in her own words, and has a big heart for her family and friends.

Her favorite songs are: "Fly me to the Moon" and "Cheek to Cheek" (sinatra), "Roar" - katy perry, and "We are the dinosaurs".  She also likes to sing Happy Birthday and will ask whose birthday it is for any given day. She knows that her birthday is may the third. She also likes to sing Immanuel and How Great Our joy, the two songs that Sloan sang in the church kids Choir for Christmas.

Piper LOVES her daddy, but is also a mama's girl. She also loves our dog ellie and will constantly tell me how much she loves my dog. "i LOVE YOUR DOGGY SO MUCH MOMMY". Piper lover her friends at school too and will run to give them hugs. Her favorite teacher is Dana, and she will run off to her class without looking back, though sometimes she likes to give me one last "squeeze hug" and then play head and shoulders (knees and toes) with me through the window.

Piper loves Sloan and is great at giving her compliments. "Sloan, i like your hair bow, it is SOO pretty!" She also likes to compliment me, "Mommy i LOVE your dress, it has so many polka dots on it"

Piper can dress herself, has been potty trained for over a year with very few accidents, and feeds herself with ease. She also can ride a tricycle and scooter. She is pretty athletic and i'm excited to see how that evolves.
