Below is Piper last week after her bath. Notice her chubby rolls on the chin and arms and torso!
And, this below is Piper after her very first bath at home! She looks like a different baby!!
This morning after Piper finished eating I decided she and I would play dress up to see what clothes in her closet fit now because last night I noticed that every onesie I dressed her in for bed was too short all of a sudden! Isn't that funny how it just happens like that (snap your fingers!). She is in 3-6 months clothes and some 6 month only clothes! I think some of the items she has will not be worn because they are winter time clothes and it doesn't look like it will be cooling off anytime soon! I am so thankful for hand me downs because this size range she is wearing now is mainly clothing different family members passed down to me, not new things. I decided to capture the moment of our dress up time below! Isn't she adorable??!!
This smocked dress was worn by my sister's girls at some point. I LOVE smocked dresses! This is actually a 6 month size but it is loose on Piper and will be worn during the remainder of the hot season...I think.
Anyway, enough of this boring stuff, here's a picture to enjoy!
This is our friend Macy on the right. You can't tell very well in this pic, but she has red hair. I love red hair!! Her older sister and brother have the same hair color and they all three look the same too! Just like their Daddy! Her mom, Lisa, dropped by this evening and they were wearing the same onesie! Perfect picture opportunity! My daughter; however, would not smile! Shocking...she has such a serious demeanor! Macy was born 2 days before Piper in the same hospital. Lisa and I were able to share a few pregnant moments together; however, she's a veteran of the whole motherhood thing because this is her 3rd!
Piper and I had a great time in Oklahoma. The picture below explains how we both feel today...tired!
Piper went to see her Grandma and Papa in the big town of Fargo for the 1st time. She acquired a nickname, thanks to her cousins and Grandma's pepperoni pizza, that Michael and I never even thought of and one that will stick for years to come I'm sure...you may have guessed it by now...Piperoni! That's it. Take Pepperoni Pizza and Piper and you've got Piperoni, folks!
Below is Piper's great-great Uncle Iven and Aunt Eloise. They are very sweet! Piper also was able to meet a few other locals while we were there!This is my niece, Anna, with Piper. Look closely...she has a mischievous look in her eye! Anna helped me a lot with Piper as did all the other kiddos!
Uncle Allen (my brother) and Piper
Grandma Judy with Piper and my niece Olivia. Notice Olivia is holding Grandma's neck...she likes to rub people's neck and suck her thumb since her mom (my sister) took away her blankie! She's cute! Her 3rd birthday is this Friday!
Lilly and Piper. The beginning of our trip began at the Roush's home. We had a great time hanging out over the weekend. The girls were on their best behavior for us!
Grammy came to visit us at my sister's home one day while we were there. My sister's kids got to spend time with Piper's Grammy. Olivia started calling Grandma Judy "Grammy," instead, after spending time with her that day.
The week went by so fast! After staying at the Roush's home in OKC, I went to my sister, Sheryl's house for the week and one night at my parent's house. We were busy going and going because my sister has 4 kids and 3 of them are in different sporting activities 4 days a week! We managed to get a little down time at the pool. It's always fun to hang out with my sister because it is so comfortable! My friend, Mendy, from college came over one night to see us. It was fun getting to chat with her. On Sunday, Piper and I flew to Dallas since we did not have a car and Michael picked us up. Piper did so great on her first flight. I would do it again in a heartbeat! I wish I would have documented it with a picture but forgot! I did feel like a total mom on the flight...I had to nurse Piper as we were taking off to help with the air pressure in her ears and yes, I was stuck sitting next to a "football player" sized man! I think he was the biggest person on the plane and there was no wiggle room whatsoever! I managed to do it w/out exposing anything and he politely kept his headphones on and his eyes closed! For once in my life, I was glad to be sitting next to an "unfriendly" person! Times like that make me feel like modesty is overrated!
Thank you Aunt Sheryl for inviting us over. We had a great time!
This is Piper drinking from a bottle on Mommy's lap.
Piper seemed to have a good time as well, but she was worn out! She slept hard every night! Here are some pics of her over the weekend!
She looks like a bug here!
Happy in her shades...
