Sweet Harper

At 12:02 am, sweet Harper turned 6 months old.  Thankfully, she wasn't awake for it.  Last night, she blessed this tired mommy by sleeping all night long!  She woke at 6 am for breakfast, laid down beside me, chatted for a few minutes and then went back to sleep...until 9:30!!  I'm not sure who had the happiest 6 months...Harper or Mommy! :o)

Harper's 6 month check up is next week, so I'll have her stats then.  For now, I'll give some updates on what our littlest princess is up to.

*New nickname: Scoot-a-Lou...during diaper changes, Harper arches her back and scoots completely off the diaper.  She did this with Jonathan the other night and scooted right into the wall (her changing table is in the corner).  She stopped, turned her head sideways/upside down and looked at the wall, perplexed. :o)
*Probably weighs over 17 lbs.  I'll check my estimate next week.
*Wears some 6-9 month clothes, mostly 9 month clothes, and some 6-12 month close.  She's a healthy girl!
*Size 3 diaper (although they're getting pretty snug).
*Still has blue eyes! :o)
*Has the sweetest disposition.
*Goes to Miss Amy's 5 days a week and is completely loved there!  She is always so happy when she is dropped off and picked up.  I know she has a blast with Amy (& and often Mr. Joe, too).  I cannot express how blessed we have been by them!  Amy will have her own little bundle (added to their two teenage boys) at the end of March!  I can't wait to meet him. :o)
*Eats every 3-4 hours...blessed to still be able to nurse her and pump milk for her to have while she's away from me!
*Rolls over--when she wants to.  Ha!
*Holds toys in both hands and can pass from one hand to the other.
*Laughs often.
*Can sit on her own for a minute or so at a time.
*Thinks her big sister, Hallie, is the cat's meow!
*Coos, babbles, "talks" all the time!

Sweet girl is 6 months young! :o)

Don't be fooled...this is really how Harper feels about tummy time!  Ha!

Happy 6 months, sweet girl!  Can't wait for more celebrations!
