Out of the Mouths of Babes

Anyone who knows me (or even worse...knew me as a child) knows the word "chatterbox" is at times an understatement. So it should come as no surprise that Piper is starting to talk up a storm. She's been saying a few words for a couple months now: uh-oh, hi, mama, dada, thank you (though it is a bit of a rough rendition), and "no, no, no, no, no" (she seems to prefer saying that one on repeat). Now her vocabulary is expanding to include: car, truck, sheep, shoes, boots, all gone/done (it's sort of a hybrid), baby, more, please, up and bye-bye. She's also learning people's names- starting with her daycare ladies Sue and Rose. But our favorite by far is hearing her say her name. About a month ago, on a whim I asked if she could say Piper and to our amazement, she did it! It sounds a lot like Bie-bo, but we still think it's the most adorable thing ever. (ever!)

Note: Please excuse the worst quality ever. Turns out using an iphone in the world's darkest dining room isn't exactly the best route for preserving memories. 
Also please excuse her getting all of her body parts confused at the end. She does know them. It's just a matter of if she feels like showing you she knows them.

In addition, I should note she's quite the animal impressionist. I'd like to say this comes from the Bowden side of the family tree, but either way: if you need a tiny performer to quack, baa, woof, hoot like an owl, and make an "ooh-ooh" monkey noise, you've found your girl.
