SQL Backup via PS script

Greetings and Salutations!

I am a new PS scripter and am working on a backup script for some vendor servers I have inherited.  The script is run as a scheduled task every night at 01:00.

I am running into an issue backing up the SQL 2012 databases.  Below is the SQL backup portion of my script.  I get a full backup on the first of the month or whatever day I run it.  The  problem arises the next night when the script is run, I get an error that the differential cannot run because a current database backup does not exist (error code below script  snippet).

Any assistance, guidance, glances in the right direction, would be most thankfully welcome.

Thank you.
