When You're One Month Old (iPhone style)...

...your life is documented via iPhone. :o) get to wear super cute BabyLegs and a cool sticker on your shirt.  But your Mommy also puts really big bows on your head. can scream really loudly and get said bow taken off your head.  Just like that. :o)'re loved on by your big sister. :o)  A lot.

...your mommy compares baby pictures with your big sister.
(Hallie is actually about 6 weeks old in her picture.) get to snuggle on the couch with your daddy. get to chat with your Nonna on FaceTime. get to read bedtime stories with your daddy and big sister...and stare at the really cool lamp. get to be amazed by the book your big sister wrote and illustrated. :o)

...and you're also the subject of your sister's photography endeavors. 

Sweet Harper--I cannot believe you have been in our lives for a whole month!  All those weeks we prepared for you (even though your room still isn't ready...that's OK) and prayed for you seem like a complete blur now that you're here in our arms!  I cannot imagine our lives without you!  Here are a few things that describe you right now...
*You are extremely vocal--lots of baby noises.  Especially grunting.  Daddy says he's going to go downtown and legally change your name to Grunter. 
*You have some tummy troubles (hence the grunting, maybe).  I've cut out all dairy.  I had to do the same thing with Hallie.
*You nurse very well for about 20 minutes every 2-3 hours.  You love to eat.  
*You have slight reflux and have to sit upright for 30-45 minutes after every feeding.  Really, I use it as an excuse to hold you even longer before putting you down for your nap.  You can't be spoiled for at least another two months. :o)
*You weigh 9.76 lbs and have the chunkiest, sweetest little cheeks.
*You HATE diaper changes.  Most of the time anyway.  And that's quite unfortunate b/c you get your diaper changed A LOT throughout the day.
*You sleep for 3 hours at night and then wake up to nurse and go right back to sleep.  You have one four hour stretch of sleep during the night.
*You can track objects held in front of you--your favorite object to track right now is Hallie's red elephant Ty Beanie.
*You seem to love your big sister, Hallie.  Or at least you're very patient with her million kisses. :o)

We love you so much and cannot wait to see what the next month has in store for you!  You are such a blessing to us!
