Dear Piper –

Happy eight month birthday my chicken little. You still only have those two bottom teeth and quite frankly, Mommy fears the day you get more. Biting Mommy has become one of your favourite things to do. Seriously, Sweet Pea, it hurts. Please stop.

You are now making the adjustment from baby food in a jar to table food and loving every minute of it. You love to eat. You love to try whatever happens to be on Mommy or Daddy’s plate too. Watching your reaction is pretty good fun for us. In all seriousness though, you have a great appetite and have enjoyed many different types of food in your short life. Cheerios are one of your favourites and your little pincher grasp developed as soon as we put those round little O’s in front of you. I am not kidding, it happened that fast.

We had some really warm weather in October and we bundled you and Molson up and went to the off leash dog park. You loved watching him run back and forth and left some bruises on Mommy’s legs from your kicks of excitement. You also enjoyed watching all the other dogs running to and fro and I can’t tell you how much I look forward to the day that you are joining them. Mommy will certainly get her exercise chasing after you and Molson.

We took you to a pumpkin patch so that you could pick out your very first pumpkin. We had a good time and of course had to set you in amongst them all for some photos. Are you getting sick of the flash going off in your face all the time?

The visit to the patch was our lead up to the second best holiday of the year… Halloween. Mommy even dressed you up as Chicken Little and took you out in the neighbourhood to do some trick or treating. Although you are still too young to enjoy the fruits of your labour we had fun and you were stinkin cute.

You are officially the nosey-est baby, EVER! You love to people watch and check out what everyone else is doing. You and Mommy spend many hours in the mall doing just that and I can see that brain of yours processing it all.

You are rolling all over the place now and rolled yourself across the room far away from Mommy. You laid there for a little while gurgling and talking to yourself and then all of a sudden you realized how far away you were. It was like you just couldn’t remember how you got there and certainly had no idea how to get back. It won’t be long now and you will be crawling to your favourite destinations. You get on your hands and knees and even rock back and forth but that is it, for now. Note to Mommy – PIPER PROOF NOW!

Mommy wants you to know that she and Daddy are pretty happy with the way this parenting thing is turning out. We must admit that it is a lot of work but the rewards for that labour are immeasurable but we get a sweet little payment everytime we see you smile or hear you laugh.

Mommy loves you, Sweetest Pea.

Love Mommy.
