Piper Grace is Five Years Old

Yesterday, Piper turned 5 years old. It has been an incredible privilege to watch her grow. It has been an incredible privilege to be her mother.

At 5 years old, Piper is a little caretaker. She loves to help people. She loves to take care of her family and friends. She cares about the right things. She cares about making others feel included. She mentors others, teaches others, and fights for what's right and just.

Piper has a thirst for knowledge and I believe she has an understanding of things far beyond her years. Piper loves Jesus, and knows that He died on the cross for our sins. She knows that our Heavenly Father wants us to care for others, in the way He cares for us.

Piper loves to be around people. She is always asking us, "where are we going today"? She wants to be out, with others. She wants adventure. She loves to play, dream, and imagine. Piper loves all things "squishy". She has a container filled with squishy toys. She also has a container filled with various erasers.

Piper loves to go swimming. She loves to jump at the trampoline park. When the weather is nicer, she also likes to be outside for hours. Piper loves to make new friends at the park. She likes to venture in the woods at her Nina and Poppa's. She likes to run down hills and, explore in the creek. 

Piper is foodie. She tried seaweed snacks the other day, and loved them. She likes avocado toast and berries for breakfast. She's known to eat a pint of blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries in one sitting. She also loves chocolate cake and ice cream.

There is so much more I could share about Piper. We are so blessed to have her as our child. I am so proud of this little girl. The love we have for her is as close of an example here on Earth of how I imagine God loves us. Unconditionally, and forever.
