Piper's New Closet

Piper's closet doors have been unusable for about 6 months now. One of them was fine, the other kept falling off the track. It was getting to be a pain, because the door that kept falling was the inside one. So to put it back on, you had to that the outside one off and put them both back on. So after a while I got very sick of it and just left it, so I could only open up one side of the closet. We finally decided to make curtains for the closet instead of fighting with the doors. So here they are. Grandma Smith helped Mommy make the curtain and then Mommy added all the sequins by hand! They are so much more convenient and they look great!

Let me Out!

Piper's new favorite thing is to crawl to something and then pull up on it. When she does it with the baby gate, it cracks us up because she looks like she's in jail. She even shakes the bars and tries to get out!

Saturday May 19th

Mommy and Daddy bought Piper an inflatable pool for her birthday. Saturday we filled it up and let her have some fun. She really loved splashing and playing with her new pool toys!

Friday May 18th

Friday Piper and Mommy went over to the Smith's for a dip in the pool. It was pretty hot out and it was nice and refreshing. Piper loves the pool and was very upset when she had to get out!

Dr. Appt

Sorry I forgot to update after Piper's 1 year check up, which was Wednesday. Our tiny little peanut is 15 lb 5 oz and 26 1/2 in long. The Dr. was worried that Piper's height growth was slowing down, so she had to get some extra testing done. Of course, she thought that Piper's just little and that's why, but they had to cover the bases and make sure there wasn't some kind of hormone problem. She had to get some blood drawn and she was NOT happy with that. They tried each arm and her veins were just too tiny, so then they tried her hand and got the blood there. She was screaming and crying so much. Then she had to get 3 shots. She was not happy but she was a little trooper. She kept looking at her hand with the band-aid on it and holding it up for everyone to see. But at least we know that she's not sick and she won't get sick.

This is the messiest she got. She liked the cake, but didn't wnat to feed herself, because it was too messy. She only got this messy because we smushed her hands into the cake!

Sunday April 29

On Sunday Mommy was very good friends with King Louie in the parade at MGM and then againg for a few sets near the hat. So Daddy and Piper went to see King Louie. Piper was cranky because it was so hot, but when all the characters paid attention to her she really enjoyed herself! When they got home, Piper was a hot sweaty mess, so Daddy gave her a bath. Piper loves baths and all the great toys she gets to play with too!
