But.....we now get more smiles than scowls....we get kisses on the cheek & big bear hugs...we hear "thank you", "bye bye", "hello", "Mama/Daddy/Chloe/Coop/Piper/Izzy", "shoes", "all gone", "pretty", "baby", "uh-oh", "uh-huh", "shoes"
we've tried sleeping in our own room (but prefer to sleep with Mama & Daddy)
rode around with the sibs (while Piper looked strangely like Richard Nixon)
made trips to the County & State fairs
Piper loved the pony
Pres...not so much
learned all about fair food
not sure what this is, but I'll take 2
Piper shooting some hoops
butter cow in progress
milking a cow in the dairy barn
petting a bunny
under Chloe & Coop
we've had a pediatrician appt with LOTS of blood work (8 vials to be exact) all which came back negative/normal -- and a cardiologist appt where we learned that her special heart is A-ok & we don't have to go back for a year! Thankful for the day! To celebrate, we made a quick trip to the mall for some new bling (excuse the blurry instagram pic)
it's been a whirlwind, amazingly awesome 4 weeks with this super special little girl -- so blessed!
