A Big MOO to all my fans!
Here are a few pictures of Miss Piper, just a few random shots of our sweetheart.

Now lets see I have two teeth, surely there is something
in here for me to try out my teeth on. Yep, that's right she has
another tooth, watch your fingers.

Old Mirror + Baby = Cheap entertainment

Swinging for the first time, she loved it.
Sorry it has been so long since I last posted, I really have no excuse.

Those Pearly Whites

Yes, Miss Piper has gotten her first tooth. I didn't even know she was cutting one, no real symptoms. I just thought I would feel in her mouth the other night and see if there were any bump where one might becoming through and much to my surprise there already was one. I know this is not the greatest picture but taking a picture of a baby's mouth is not easy.

Here are some videos of Miss Piper, she has learned to clap and is trying to crawl. Excuse me while I cry because my baby is growing up too fast. "sniff, sniff"

Please go to sleep...

Miss Piper has been a little pill today, crying instead of napping. Poor thing, who can blame her she has a nasty diaper rash (who would have thought carrots would cause such a thing), so we have had a very interesting day. I finally put her in bed to play and hopefully fall asleep, all was quiet YES I thought sleep. But to my amusement this is what I saw when I walked in the room, what a monkey.
