Little Adventures

Piper.  Piper.  Piper.  Tomorrow she will be one month old.
Time really does zip on by.  Oh, there's so much to say.
I'll save the sappiness for the next post.  I just can't believe it's been a whole 30 days already.

I can't get enough of our little "Mooncheekins" (one of her 492 nicknames).

Mooncheekins  Piper had a wonderful third week of life.

She loves focusing on objects.  She will stare for minutes at a time.

More lil' smiles are poppin' out each day.

The other night, Piper was fussing away.  Daddy swooped her up and swayed her back and forth as they headed down the hallway.  A few minutes later, he called me into the
nursery.  He let Piper try out her crib, turned the lights off and turned on her musical seahorse from Dee Dee.  She was mesmerized...cooing and making the sweetest little baby noises.
We melted instantly.

Aunt Karen stopped over for a visit. 
She came, as always, bearing lots of treats for Mommy, Daddy and Pips.

Dee Dee joined us a bit later.  Piper got an earful as she listened to all of the
 funny and interesting stories us ladies were telling all afternoon.

Pretty grandma and grandbaby...
She loves sleeping on Dee Dee.

Piper is such a lucky little lady to have these two ladies in her life.


"Yay!  Daddy's home!"

Just a few of the treats from Aunt Karen...
This was just half of the meat-wich she brought for Steve.
It was almost as big as Piper.

Fart food for Mommy

Sushi, how I love thee

Steve and I watched American Idol while scarfin' our dinner.  Pipsy soon woke up, heard the tunes and wanted to dance.  We shook our groove things for a few songs - Piper loved every bit of it (and so did I).

However, she was sad when the show ended.
HAHA!  Is it bad that I (and Steve, as you can see in the pic) laugh at crying babies/baby photos?!
I adore this little sad face.

I got the "Piper pout" on video.
It's the cutest.  Again, I melt.

Aunt Jessica named Pipsy's seahorse, Neptune.  How perfect!
Piper loves him and the sweet sounds that come from his belly.

Talk about melting...

Aunt Jessica came over last Thursday.  We ate lunch at home while Piper slept by us.
We found her like this after a lot of gabbing...we were dying laughing.
"Uh, Mommy, my headband may be a little big!"

After lunch, we headed on a walk downtown for ice cream.
I have become obsessed with ice cream (again).  I didn't really crave it all that much during my pregnancy.  But now, it's all I ever want.

Piper woke up just as we had ordered our Raspberry Truffle and Guatemalan Ripple.  She cried and cried and yelled at Aunt J and I for not ordering her a mini cone with rainbow sprinkles.
We parked it at a table outside as I rocked and swayed Pippy.
Once the babe was back to sleep, it was time for some photos...

<3 these pictures.  <3 these girls.

Luckily Piper slept through what Aunt Jessica and I encountered next. 
Lemme tell ya, we picked a very entertaining spot to eat our ice cream and take in the pretty weather.
Every 9 out of 10 people that walked by us were just a tad cuckoo!   And every other one of them decided to stop and talk to us!

Mommy learned quickly that next time it'd be smarter to order a cup rather than a cone.
I still loved every bit of my Guatemalan Ripple cone soup.

Girlfriends. <3


Piper gets her love of bathtime from her Mama.

Love these faces.

Tummy Time...

"Weeeeeeee!!"  Wishing Dee Dee and Uncle Nicholas a nice night!

 Piper and I took a trip to two grocery stores on Friday. 

She snoozed it up and woke up crying away while Mommy checked out.
And then she snoozed again...

Waking up halfway through and checking out all the sights.  She was adorable and so

"Where in the heck am I?!"

"Hey flufflies, may I join you?"

One of my mom's cute finds at the consignment sale we went to on Saturday.

 Uncle Jamie, Aunt Leslie and Parker came over to meet Piper.
They brought a wonderful lunch and dessert.
The babes traded gifts as we celebrated Piper's birth and Parker's birthday.

Beautiful babe!  These photos make me pop!

We were so happy to get together and see our little girls together.
They're only a few days shy of being exactly one year apart.

Love Piper's face (and hat) here.  LOL!

The two "P-er" girls

Saturday night, I made us a Mexican feast.  We watched a movie while Pips slept. 

Sunday morning, Daddy fed Piper while I took a little break.

We spent the day in, relaxing.
Muffin loves hanging with her new sister.

Daddy feet.  Baby feet.  Yahh!


A Sunday stroll

A visit with Aunt Kim, Uncle Adam and Noah

More melting...

 More ice cream fun...

"Mommy, I'll take the extra large peanut butter and chocolate chip milkshake!"

Daddy accidentally ate Mommy's Heathbar ice cream.  I wasn't mad.  It was my mistake.  I took a taste and told him it was his.  Reese's peanut butter cups must taste the same.

Dee Dee came over while Daddy hung out at Uncle Adam's.

We got her ready for bathtime.

Dee Dee did the honors.  Piper was a water sweetie...hanging her tiny legs and feet over the side of the tub.  She was lovin' it.  And so was Dee Dee.


 Muffin joined the fun.

We wrapped her up
all snugly and warm.

And Dee Dee rocked her to sleep.

Monday morning, we woke up and sang songs.
Her favorite was "The Hokey Pokey!"  

 She smiled as I shook her little feeties and wished her a happy four weeks.

 Tomorrow we celebrate Piper's first month and the beginning of May.

I'll be back later this week. 

I hope everyone is having a beautiful last day of April.

May Eve Lovin',
