I know I'm a bit late posting this, but Piper had her 4 year well check yesterday, so I wanted to wait for her stats before posting.

Piper loves to go and do fun things, especially if her brother is involved, which is most of the time. I didn't grow up with siblings in my house, so this relationship they have, while baffling to me at times, is really everything I ever wanted for them. They do fight and they are totally normal kids, but they are happiest when they are together. When I was growing up, I always wanted to grow up and have 2 kids, the first being a boy to help take care of his younger sister. I never knew that they would be such a team and makes me so happy that they are so close!
Most of the time, when we play with other kids, Piper is the youngest and sometimes the only girl. But, Piper is super athletic, so most of the time she can hang with all the older boys and what they are doing. We are starting to have friends that are just hers (meaning her age), though, so she's got her own little posse of kids that she runs with too!

Piper is all girl and one of her favorite things to do is hang out with Mama, which is always a good excuse to get chocolate somewhere. She loves to shop and she loves to have her toes painted, but only by me. This girl also loves to dig in the dirt and climb rock walls and run as fast as she can. She's a well rounded girl, that one!

Piper also has a great propensity and interest and love for all things about the human body. Granted, she comes by it honestly, but I have to say that she was given to the right Mama since that's my specialty. She wastes no time reading about or talking about all the things she knows about the body, continually baffling normal people and impressing medical professionals. One of my earliest memories is reading medical encyclopedias that my mom and dad bought for me, so I'm guessing I'm going to have to get this kid reading faster so that I can do the same for her!

Piper is growing and maturing and is just the sweetest little girl that I've ever met! I tell her everyday that she's my favorite girl and there are no truer words spoken! She brings so much joy and light to our worlds and we are blessed to have her in our family!
