{this moment}

Inspired by SouleMama, {this moment} is a single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Piper is 2 now

Can you tell by looking at her?
I love Piper being two.  She's so fun.   She talks in these great toddler sentences, like "Mama, wait me. Hold hand." Or, "Where sister?" all high-pitched and excited, then "At school" with an air of disappointment.  "I do it" is definitely a big phrase for her right now.  When she gets tired of riding in the car she says, "I ready get out now."  Ooh, here's one she just said, "Hurt my belly. On box over there."  She also wants to do what Cadence does.  When we took Cadence to dance class this week, Piper was all "I go dance class too!"  Maybe this will translate into potty training progress. 
Without further ado, Piper's favorites, at 2.
Favorite color: orange (Actually, she says everything is orange.  I'm starting to think she's colorblind.)
Favorite foods: banana, watermelon, and cookies (When I tried asking her what she wanted for dinner on her birthday, all she'd say was "tookies")
Favorite song: "Twinkle Star"
Favorite toys: princess bunny, cell phones, jewelry.  But the one thing she wanted for her birthday was a train track.
Favorite activities: swinging in the yard, carrying around small bags, eating ("SOOO hungry, Mama.  So hungry.")
Favorite show: on the occasion she gets to watch a TV show, she asks for Super Why and "Pablo" - meaning Backyardigans.
Favorite book: I don't think we could pick a favorite book because we read so many these days of all different varieties.  The last couple days she's been choosing a Winnie the Pooh alphabet book and In the Woods by Elizabeth Spurr, in which a boy goes fishing and camping with his dad.  She loves the line, "Boy baits. Boy waits."  Maybe she'll be more suited for fishing than I am.
