Day one of Christmas Books and Piperleigh's birthday

Well, today is the first of December, which means the beginning of our Christmas book Advent tradition.  And, it's a special day because it's Piperleigh's birthday!  So, to start our Christmas festivities, we read the book Christmas Magic and then we celebrated sweet Piperleigh's birthday.  She is pretty wonderful.

She was very interested in the fire on the candle.  She grabbed it and then we had to hold her hands so she wouldn't keep grabbing at the fire.

And she was mad that we wouldn't let her have the fire

She was lukewarm about the cake.  She didn't eat much at all today actually.  But she did enjoy the fondant.  

until it was too much and then she just spit it out.  

 Oh, I just love her.  She has the perfect amount of snuggles and independence.  She likes to be off of my lap and exploring but is such a good snuggler too.  She recently started putting her arm around my neck at bedtime and nuzzling her head into me and it's the best thing in the world.  I can't believe it's been an entire year since she has been a part of our family.  I can't wait to spend more years with her and hope to watch her grow into a beautiful lady.

Happy Birthday to her yesterday! She is so adorable. I can't wait to meet her. I like that book idea. We should do it when we have our kids.

She is a beautiful little soul. It was very fun to see her on the screen and see her walking. I'm glad she had a happy day yesterday.
