Happy First Year!!!

Happy one year anniversary Josh!!!

I keep thinking that if every year after this one are half as eventful we certainly are going to have an exciting life together!

Only 19 days in and we were already expecting a little one.
I got a promotion, my position got cut, we bought a short sale, we moved twice, we had a baby, and to think we kicked it all off with a trip of a life time to Hawaii.

What a great year it's been and I hope to spend 101 more with you!

River Walk

Between me going back to work and it being our anniversary weekend we were all in need of a family day. We hopped on the MAX and headed downtown for a walk around the Willamette.

It was such a beautiful day!!!! After our trip around the River Walk we stopped and got ice cream cones.

We also manage to find some time to just sit, relax and people watch by the river.

It was fun to take time and enjoy each other and the city we live in!

Piper the Bookworm

I can not believe how much Piper loves books. She gets so excited each time we read to her. Josh said I need to quit reading to her before bed because she gets so wound up it's hard for her to settle back down.
I just love the fact that she loves books so much!

3 months old!

Piper turned 3 months old today.
She had a very big month.

She became obsessed with her feet.
She took her first plane trip and got her own set of wings.
She took off her sock.
She started grabbing objects dangled in front of her.
She rolled over from back to tummy.
She's starting to fit into her 3-6 month clothes.
We heard her giggle, unfortunately it was at 3 am.
She is struggling with tummy time... not her favorite time of day.
She loves books and being read to.

She's also gotten to spend more time with her daddy. I've gone back to work and Josh is staying home with her. They have so much fun together and always have new tricks to show me when I get home.

It's been a very big month in the life of little Piper.

Babies Swimming

I can't stop looking at these pictures of babies swimming! It's too cute!

Happy Father's Day Dad! Even though you were only there for the first 10 years of my life you made every moment count!

Happy Father's Day Ron! Very few men would take on two teenage daughters but you did it with open arms. I am very lucky to have you as a dad! Thank you for everything!!!!

Happy first Father's Day Josh! I am so lucky to have you as a partner in the thing called parenthood. Piper is so lucky to have you as her daddy!

I thought I'd share with you some of the highlights of our Minnesota trip.

We took a walk around Lake Harriet

We had Piper Baptized

We visited Grandpa and Grandma Becker

Piper also got to celebrate Mapleton days! The parade went right by Grandpa and Grandma's house.

We did so much, Piper met so many people, we had so many Piper parties, and Josh and I even managed to go on a date. All and all it was a wonderful trip!
