We have a lot to be thankful for, too much to even list. Sometimes when things get stressful or things are not going great, I become too self absorbed to step back and say that these are all little petty things that don't matter in life. It is always good to get a reality check sometimes that we have jobs and a house and can feed our family all of which all healthy. For all of that...Thanks.

It got really cold out the other weekend so we found a beanie that we put on P and headed to the park. Our weekends usually consist of lots of park time and outside playing. And as usual she enjoyed it.
It has been warm though yesterday and today and today was grilled cheese and tomato soup day at school (yes, how does a 1 year old eat soup...) so we needed to send her in something that could handle lots of mess. Turn out she needed to wear her Math shirt...love it! Yes, I am a dork I know.
Last but not least...tomorrow is the big day. We find out if baby number two is a boy or girl. Yup thats right for those of you who didn't know I'm preggers again. Baby 2 due date is April 9th. P will be a big sister in just 5 months! Yikes!

At daycare, they try to avoid using the word No, and we try to as well at home. Instead when a child does something like hit or push or bite another child, they said "Piper that is not nice." And then they would say something like "Laurie, tell Piper that is not nice." (if she had hit me or something).
Now we have yet to use this at home, and no P doesn't ever get sent home with a report that she is hitting/biting or anything. But I have witnessed other kids doing this when I drop her off or pick her up. The other day, P was chasing Killer around and pulling his tail and we told her that that was "not nice". She immediately pointed to the cat and said "not nice" (is P language, which sounds more like nah nye), and she even shakes her finger a bit and her head. It is quite funny. We tried not laughing and explaining that Kitty was being nice, that is was her that was not nice. But that didn't work. Now, sometimes she just points to the cat and says "nah nye". It cracked me up last night in the middle of dinner when the cat walked by and there she goes. Too cute.

Luckily my sister gave us Amelia's old costume, so we reused and put it on little P. She had a blast walking around outside seeing her friends. And then just took to sitting on the porch with us and we let her have her first sucker, a dum dum, which she did quite well at. Many people said she could be either a monkey or a bear...either way, she was quite cute!
