Pyper Grace is 1 year old

 My dear sweet Pyper Grace, 

Today you are one year old! Where oh where did the year go? This time last year, your Daddy and I were sitting in a hospital room snuggling you and getting to know you. Tonight, we blew out candles on a pink cupcake and chased you around the living room. You'll never know how much joy you bring me. I wake up each morning to be greeted by your sweet smile. I love your snuggles and they way you call my name for anything. I'm so thankful the Lord chose me to be your Mommy. I look forward to continuing watching you grow into a beautiful God fearing woman. I know that will have bumps along the way, but I'll cherish every peak and valley we go through because it will be with you, my sweet little girl!

Having your first cupcake!

Here is what you are up to at 12 months old:

Your vocabulary is increasing quickly. You say Mama, Dada, Hi, Hello, Bye Bye, Hot, Go, More, Yes, and Tic Tic (Tickle Tickle).

You are a Daddy's girl! You love me and we enjoy our time together, but when your Daddy walks in that door it's all over for me. You reach for him the most and cry if he doesn't pick you up the second he sees you. However, I'm still the only one that can rock you to sleep at night and read you bedtime stories.

You are crawling up a storm and not interested in standing or crawling. You have pulled up on the coffee table a few times but get stressed out once your standing. You usually stand there and call my name until I come and rescue you. I know you'll walk in your own time. 

Cindy Lou Who?

You still love bath time! You giggle and splash in the bath. You love to sit and play with bath toys as long as I'll let you. We have also been swimming twice this month and you loved both times. I think you will be a waterbug like your brother!

Speaking of brother, you hang on every word he says to you. Y'all have your own little games y'all play with each other. Nobody can make you belly laugh like he can. I love to hear him talk to you and you gab back to him. 


You love to pretend like your talking on the phone, you love to really talk to your Grammy on the phone even more! When she calls you just talk and talk. When we have to hang up you usually cry. 


You are a great eater. You love chicken, Turkey, Hotdogs, Corndogs, Strawberries, blueberries, applesauce, crackers, clementines, cheese, carrots, and green beans just to name a few of your favs. You have been off of formula for about a month now and love your whole milk. You are drinking warm whole milk in a bottle right before bedtime, this is the only bottle you get. We are hoping to get you off of that one bottle soon. You love to drink out of a straw and love to share drinks with Mommy. 

My little Easter Bunny

I am oh so looking forward to spending all my summer days with you. Thankfully, that is starting next Friday! We are having a birthday party for you this Saturday. I can't wait to see you smash into your cake and open all your presents. This is such a fun time.

If you don't get anything else I just want you to know how loved you are. I pray that you and I will have a close mother-daughter relationship one day. I'm already so proud of you and know that you will continue to make us proud in all you do. We love you so much.
