Yes, it has been awhile...things just got busy! I started back at work almost 2 weeks ago and since then, it has been nonstop go go go. Piper seems to be adjusting to the full blown daycare and everything which is good. I was a mess the first few days she was there but I am feeling better and better about it now.
As for stats on PZ, we totally think she is close to talking. Finally saying mama and dada and directly it at us sometimes. Although she still does say mama or dada to other things too. We have mastered the wave for hello and goodbye, and loves to clap her hands and stomp her feet and dance (shake back and forth). Yesterday she signed more for the first time and we think she actually meant it. We also think she is trying to say "all done" and "up" and "ball" but not completely. All of the communication stuff has all happened in the last couple days.
Her top two teeth in the front are maybe halfway down, they are moving super slow. But she does pretty good chewing with just her two bottom teeth and those two on top and it looks like she might be cutting two more on the bottom too.
She is still super active, running around nonstop and is very into reading books (or having us read them to her). After 10 times of the same book though, it isn't so fun for me! And she also has started whining. If she wants something or wants our attention she will start to whine until we help her. This is not a good habit! I haven't even taken many pictures in the last month, but we did take a few of her at the pool. She absolutely loves the water and wants to go in as far as she can barely keeping her head above the water. She seems to have no fear at all which is fun and scary at the same time!
Still love the laundry basket:
