Six Months

Harper here's what you have been up to:

-You weigh 14 pounds 13 ounces (27%)
-You are 25 inches long (24%)
-You are in size 2 diaper
-You are in 0-3 month clothes
-You eat every 3 hours during the day
-You are typically going to bed between 8p-9p and sleeping until 7a-8a
-You have found your voice and if we aren't paying attention to you (which isn't that often) you will scream and laugh really loud to get our attention.
-You still aren't rolling over, you have almost rolled from back to belly a few times
-You are smiling ALL the time.  You really are the happiest baby, we love it!!
-You still love your baths and you splash around like crazy and make a HUGE mess
-You are noticing people and faces more.  You saw your Aunt Ninna this weekend and you started to kick your legs and get excited to see her!  (which made her happy!)
-You went Trick or Treating for the first time and you sure did load up on candy! 
-You went to your first wedding and you were great!
-You experienced your first OSU Homecoming
-You met your Great Aunt Jan and Second Cousin Jannell from Kansas and your Aunt Karrie from Montana
-You went to your first High School football game with Aunt Amanda and Aunt Stephanie

You are really the happiest baby and we just love when you talk to us and the faces you make.  You get so excited to see your daddy when he comes home from work and it melts my heart.  I can't say enough great things about you, you are just such a happy baby.  Your daddy and I love you so much and you are definitely the center of our universe!

We love you sweet girl!!

Happy Halloween

This is a little overdue but we had a great Halloween.  The night before we went to my best friend Stephanie's church to their Fall Festival.  Yes, I know that Harper can not participate in the games but it was another chance for her to show off how cute she looked in her Ladybug costume!! 

This may sound silly but Halloween was exactly what I always hoped it would be.  We went to my friend Cara's neighborhood to start with and finished up with ours.  There were kids everywhere.  The weather was a perfect fall night.  The streets were filled with Mom's, Dad's, strollers, dogs, laughter and "Trick or Treating".  Just looking down the street I felt like I was on Wysteria Lane, everything was picture perfect.

I am excited to start traditions with Harper.  I love taking things from each of our childhoods and making them our own.  I look at Harpy and I realize we are so blessed to have her and she is all OURS!!  

We hope you all had a great Halloween!!
