Piper's 1st Birthday

Our beautiful little baby girl, Piper, turned 1 on Friday.

 Daddy stated it best on Friday morning when he stated the following... "Happy 1st Birthday to our little baby girl, Piper! A year ago, I was told that being a Father changes you forever but being a Father to a Daughter makes you a better man! All three children have so positively impacted me but the last year is extremely special. Love you Piper."
Daddy & Piper
 Mommy is loving every minute... Piper is and will always be a little fashionista. Mommy is certain that Team Hutton and the Hutton household needs less testosterone and will continue to introduce as much girly stuff as possible.
Mommy & Piper
 Piper had a great birthday and weekend. We celebrated with friends and neighbors with lots of kids and energy....Piper loved it. 

We all watched and waited to see if Piper would be interested in her birthday cake. After a few seconds she went for it and didn't stop until the majority of the cake was gone. 
 Then to either spite us or just demonstrate that she was done, she decided to place the plate with what was left of her cake on top of her head.
 When it was all done, we had one really tired little girl who experienced her birthday party the same way she experiences every day....with lots of passion, energy, excitement and love.

Piper's Walking

We don't have any updated photos or a video but Piper took her first consecutive steps yesterday and did it multiple times. Five days short of her 1st birthday and we officially have a walker. More to follow....Or shall I say, more that Mommy & Daddy need to follow.

Easter in Beaver Creek

After Tagg retired to rest his legs, Ryder decided it was time to take the lead.

Spring Break in Beaver Creek - I

On the first day of our ski vacation, Daddy stayed back with Piper and waited for everyone in Beaver Creek Village so he and Piper could participate in the apres ski. Papa Leveque and Courtney enjoyed skiing together while the boys spent more time practicing in ski school.

 On the second day of our ski vacation, Papa Leveque stayed back with Piper so they could pick Nana Leveque up...Allowing Scott & Courtney time away while the boys once again honed their skills in ski school.
On the third day of our ski vacation, Nana Leveque stayed back with Piper allowing Papa Leveque, Daddy, Mommy, Ryder (6) and Taggart (4) to all hit the slopes as a family for the first time (no ski school for the boys!).

We were so excited to be on the mountain as a family and amazed by how good the boys have gotten.
