Kyla chose her gift to Piper and then wrapped it mostly by herself. She probably also unwrapped it for Piper.
Piper’s new special dolly has her picture taken with Kyla’s special dolly, may she never get lost, amen.
Piper kind of gets into unwrapping and playing with her new Aquadoodle. At least it’s fun to tease Kyla with the other water pen.
Piper took a little convincing to get into her strawberry ice cream, but Kyla needs no encouragement to dive into the celebratory chocolate fondue.
Grandma Kruger knitted matching heart sweaters for Valentine’s Day and Grandpa Kruger made an animal train for Piper that matched the one he previously made for Kyla.
Whew! We got Pipes through her first year…..
Piper’s special song, as sung to Twinkle, Twinkle:
Wiggle, giggle, Piper Rose
That’s the name your mother chose.
You were born on Valentine’s,
A sweetheart one and all opines.
Wiggle, giggle, Piper Rose,
Hug your belly, kiss your toes.

We decided to hold our annual Wine and Chocolate Fete on Valentine’s Day and postpone Piper’s celebration to the next day. She didn’t seem to mind and she enjoyed playing with the other kids regulated to the basement during the party. Notice the cute hearts all over her jammies—practically perfect for a Sweetheart baby.

I was browsing photos of Kyla when she was almost a year old and I came across this photo. It's such an unlikely Kyla expression that I've actually have never seen it except for in this one fluke picture.
These two photos were taken when each girl was 9 1/2 months old. Can you guess who's who? (See next entry.)
Watch goes beep

Hmm, I was going to post at least that video, but it is truly terrible, so I won't waste your time.
Instead, here is a little laundry humor. I often carry the kids up in the hamper or laundry basket so that I can accomplish two tasks in one trip, so I have several pictures of them like this.

And Piper is becoming just a bit more bashful about her smiles....
