I really am surprised that I am still sane! I think I nearly lost my mind those first few months after Piper was born. Damn hormones and sleep deprivation. I'm still having some crazy mood swings and I'm sure Aaron and Parker think I'm a crazy woman most days. It really is hard (and amazingly wonderful) to start all over again, especially when both my boys were independent and I had so much freedom. But, I wouldn't trade her for anything. She is truly a blessing and a surprise! Now, the next step is getting her out of our bed and into her own. I have a book on how to accomplish this, now to just find some time to read it!
Piper finally got her eighth tooth last week. She is standing more on her own and took six steps last night for Parker. She is talking up a storm and aside from "Mom" and "Daddy" (and all their variations), "Uh-oh" and "Oh No", "hi" and "bye", "yeah" and "no", my favorites are "Ash" and "Hey!" She's also started saying her name "Pah-Pah". She really has become a little ham. She loves to dance and she loves to climb the stairs.
I just about had a heart attack! I just downloaded all the photos from my camera and I deleted them from my computer somehow! What the hell?!? Luckily Parker took some, I hope Aaron can find them when he gets back from the DMV!
