|Mom, Pyper and Ellie|
The other day I let Preston and Pyper play in some big mud puddles at the park. Pyper got very cold. I got a warm bath for her and was cleaning her up. She was very uncomfortable being dirty and cold. When I first put her in the bath she said, "I want my mom." I said that it was a silly thing to say, that I was right there. She then said, "No, I want Heidi. I want her to be my mom. She is an angel." I just had to smile.
Another Pyper story: Pyper called out from her room just before she shut her door, "I need some alone time, I need some alone time from Ellie."
