Pipers birthdays!

So. I am now the mother of a walking and talking one year old. What the heck? Where did the time go. I cannot believe it has been a year already. We had a party with my parents in Bentonville, then one in Dallas with Rik's family, Then we had one here in The Rock. It was so much fun. Piper had a blast and got to eat 3 different cakes. I made her cake for the party here, and we had lots of friends over. She got some really great stuff.
She has such a personality now. Sometimes a little bratty, but we are working on it. I love being able to stay at home with her. Every day is a new adventure. She is learning to "read her books. She will walk around and "talk" with her books in her hand and then bring them to me to read. It is really cute. She loves to play with her new kitchen. She walks around with the pot and pan, stirring and"feeding" us and the dogs. She sometimes just likes to walk around the living room clapping and singing. She LOVES Elmo. we bought her an Elmo chair, and she will sit in it and watch TV. It is so cute. She is eating all big girl food now, though lately she is not wanting to eat her vegetables.
I think I may be bragging a little , so I will stop now, but , know that I love her and I am so PROUD of her.
Here are a few pics of the cake I made and her party!
