4 years ago....


....Piper Anne Berry entered our lives.
And we've never been the same:

Piper to us means "strong and free" and that is what we have been praying for her life the last 4 years and 9 months we've known her. She has a dynamic personality and imagination. She can control the mood of a group....for better or worse. The thing we really love about Piper, though, is that she is so comfortable in her own skin. She knows who she is and likes who she is. She is contemplative and needs A LOT of alone time to recover from groups of people. And sometimes- if you are one of the lucky few- she'll let you into her world of pretend, where you're either dressing up for a royal ball, being taken care of as a baby, reciting the entire Bell movie or helping the Little Daddies (who live in her step) get ready for bed. Enjoy seeing Piper grow up- we know we are.

Fall, age 1
Birthday, 2

Happy Birthday, Pie. We love you so much.
