Piper — Long time, no see.

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Piper is getting big!  We have been pretty slack in updating the blogs, mainly because we have busy living our lives.  Piper sat up by herself yesterday (3/30/09) for the first time.  It was precious.  She tried one time and face planted, and then cried for along time.  Then, she tried again and face planted, but she wasn’t as upset with herself.  She took a two or three hour break and ate and relaxed, and then she just magically sat up like a pro.

Her personality is adorable.  She is equally as charming as Sophie, but completely different.  She is very vocal and active.  She also gets very upset when you try to take anything from her, not just out of her hands but out of her viewshed.  She is also a mama’s girl.  She doesn’t like to lose sight of me.  She is very smiley, but also very demanding of herself.  It’s so amazing to see her personality emerging.  Her favorite pick-me-up is Sophie.  She also likes playing “bed monster” with Mark and Sophie.  I’m not really into that game because I don’t like anything that perpetuates monsters as a reality, but I am finding that I am frequently a bummer in the adventure play arena.

Piper’s other recent happenings — she’s eating carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, apples, peas and rice cereal.  I’m about to introduce peaches (big news!).  Also, she bathes about once a week — I know that is gross to some, but i wash her legs, face and arms/hands daily.  She just can’t stand being in the cold on her back, so when I bathe her, I have to get in the tub with her and heat up the room.  I know she will love the pool this summer and all worries with be over.

She doesn’t like when I put her in the car seat, but she loves riding in the car, especially since she faces Sophie.  I’m not nearly as anxious about seeing her at all times like I was with Sophie.

I can already tell that Piper is not a kid to be reckoned with.  She’s sweet and happy, but she’s no push-over.  The kids in her class are older, but she keeps up.  She’s never cries when Sophie lands on her or pulls her.  She only cries if she is being hurt, and Sophie is pretty good at knowing what the threshold is.  They scare me to death, but they seem to keep each other pretty happy.  More pictures to come. . . .but here is one form this weekend.
