New Sparkle!

Howdy Y'all!

On Monday I had to take Harper to get her flu shot booster and I was so impressed with her at the doctor's office.  After they gave her the shot, her face went a little sour, but I put her pacifier in her mouth...and no tears!  She has always cried for her shots and I was so proud of her!  She even left the doctor's office with the biggest smile on her face.  I knew that she needed a treat for her wonderful behavior... today Harper got some new sparkle in the form of some new earrings.  Yes, we got her ears pierced.  She was a trooper!  She cried for about 30-45 seconds and then she was just fine.  There weren't many smiles right after getting them done, but at least there weren't many tears.  We had them done at the mall at Claire's - we had been trying for over a month to get them done at Merle Norman, but their schedule is just ridiculous and they never had anyone working that would pierce a baby's ears.

She was pretty proud of herself when we got home.

Since we were at the mall - and Harper had done so well getting her flu shot this week and getting her ears pierced - we thought that she deserved another treat.  Harper went to Build a Bear for the first time and got her own bear!  Then, the smiles came out!  She just squealed in was so cute.

Today has been a great day!  We love spending time with this precious girl!

Whoo, Whoo is 7 Months Old?

Howdy Y'all!

My little Harper turned 7 months old on Friday - I just can't believe how fast this first year is going.  I even bought something for her birthday party this week because I feel like if I don't start planning now, it will sneak up on me!

Can you believe just a few months ago she was this small?

Harper is wearing 6/9 month clothes and on occasion, she has worn some 12 month outfits.   This cute little girl still hasn't worn anything twice, but we are getting close to repeating an outfit soon.  I can't even believe that we had so many clothes!  It is crazy!  People were just so generous to us...Harper and I are both spoiled so much.

She is wearing size 3 diapers and I hope we stay in this size for another month or so since we still have lots of size 3 diapers left.

She doesn't have a ton of hair, but what is growing in is almost white.  It is so, so blonde.  Her eyes are still blue most of the time, but they go between green and blue.  My eyes do the same thing so I think it would be cool if she ends up with the same trait as me.

Harper FINALLY master rolling from her stomach to her back this month.  She has been rolling over from her back to her stomach for 4 months, but she hated tummy time so much that she refused to roll back over and she would just cry to be rescued.  Our doctor told us to just let her cry it out and force her to do it...and sure enough, that worked.  Now that she has master both directions, she just rolls everywhere when you put her in the floor.

She is the happiest baby in the morning- just full of smiles and it makes me sad to have to drop her off at daycare when she is such a good mood.

She loves bath time and loves playing with her rubber ducks!

Harper probably eats more fruits and vegetables than I do.  :)  Maybe not fruits...but, quite possibly the vegetables.  She has now had sweet potatoes, green beans, green peas, squash, carrots, apples, oranges and banana.  Next up we will add pears and nectarines in the mix.   I have made all of her food so far and she has loved everything!

She loves all of her new toys from Christmas - she looks adorable playing her piano from her Nana and PawPaw.

Harper loved playing with her cousin Ava - Christmas was the first time that she was old enough to actually play and interact with Ava.  It was so cute to see them together and I can't wait to get them together again.  February can't get here soon enough.

I really can't believe it is going so fast, but I love watching Harper grow.  This has been the best 7 months!

Mommy, Give Me a Minute...I am Busy Reading a Book

Howdy Y'all!

Today Harper was playing in her room while I put away her laundry and I got some of the cutest pictures.  She loves her books!

Hmmm...which book to read?

This page looks interesting!

I wonder what it says.

This is sooo good - I have to get a closer look!

Playing with Mommy is so much fun!
