Yup that is me… starting now.
Harper was 11 months old on December 9th. Even typing that makes me want to weep, WEEP!
The last time I updated was 8 months ( can you say slacker- or maybe just mom who works full time and has zero energy at the end of the day).
I can’t remember all of the milestones in order, so I will just list them.
-She has 2 teeth on the bottom. No bleeding or massive trauma when they broke through, we just woke up one day and she had teeth! She is super cute with her woodchuck smile.
– Over Thanksgiving she ate shredded turkey and ham. She doesn’t like mashed potatoes yet though.
-Her bedtime is now 8:30, rather than 10:30! Yay! Mommy can do other things now!
– Whenever one of her little toys makes music, she stands up, rocks back and forth and hums. It is probably the sweetest thing ever!
-She LOVES her daddy! When he comes home, she squeals with excitement!
-Animals are hysterical to her. There is a travelers insurance commercial where all of the animals are frolicking and getting along, this commercial makes her laugh really hard.
-She learned the sign language for “all done”, but rarely uses it. Instead she does this weird head bob. It isn’t necessarily her shaking her head “No”, its… hard to describe.
-She thinks its funny when she toots. Probably because I think its funny to. Come on… baby toots = cute!
Now we are gearing up for her first Christmas. I am so excited, even though she has NO clue. Christmas eve I am going to put away all of her toys so she can fully enjoy the gazillion packages under the Christmas tree.
With her first Christmas comes, SANTA PICS! Whenever I think of Santa pics, I think of this scene from Elf:
One last cute thing to add! She has this adorable little “lovey” frog named Hoppy. She sleeps with Hoppy every night and every nap. She has started this habit of throwing Hoppy over the side of her crib in hopes we will come rescue him. The other night Justin walked by her room when she was supposed to be asleep and heard her say “dadadadad” and jump up and down. He went in and rescued Hoppy for her of course, then she laid down and went right to sleep. It was super cute!
More to come after Christmas!
