Our Little Mess Maker

These links are just not good enough!
There must be something better in here!
Oh, hi Mommy!

Piper learned to clap on Monday. We've been trying to teach her for a while now. Monday, early in the day, we were showing her how to do it again and trying to see if she would. Of course, she didn't. Then that night we were watching Jeopardy and the people on TV started clapping, so Piper did too. And now she's been doing it a lot. Especially when people on TV are clapping, like when we were watching American Idol! Yay Piper!

Mickey's Retreat

Today Mommy and Piper went to Mickey's Retreat. It's a place for cast members and their families to go in the summer. It's on a little lake where you can fish and rent canoes or paddleboats. There's beach volleyball, tennis courts and soccer fields. There's ping-pong tables and picnic tables and barbques. There's 2 pools and a big playground. We met up with some firends there and had a cookout. Piper took a dip in the pool, played on the swings and played in the sand. It was a very fun day!

Beach bum!

Piper loved the swings!

Neither of them were too sure what they should do!

Happy 10 Month Birthday Piper!

Piper is getting so big and so mischevious! She finally crawled last week. It was only one little crawl though and she hasn't done it since. She was up on her hands and knees and she moved forward and then nose-dived into the carpet. She continues to get up on her hands and knees to reach her toys easier though. She has learned where we keep some of her smaller toys (in a little wooden basket near "her spot" in the livingroom). So now she pulls all the toys out one by one until there's a big mess all over the floor. But she is learning to put them away when she's done. She has learned how to kiss too. She knows VERY well that when she cries she gets what she wants, so she often fake cries now. We're trying to break her of that habit REAL quick! She's still working on pulling herself to sitting and to standing using the furiture and she's getting better at it. She says; "MaMa," "DaDa," "duck," "hi," "bye," and last week she said "kittie." We've been starting to give her small chunks of real food like; banana, strawberry, rice cakes, cheese and lunch meat. She loves it! Not too much longer and she'll be on real people food completely.
Playing with her music table, she LOVES it
A beautiful smile!
