18 months

(This was written 02.02.14 and I didn't realize it didn't publish! Sigh.) 

Our sweet Harper is 18 months old today! I cannot believe it has been a year and a half since she burst into our lives in record time. Her little personality is really beginning to shine through, and lately she has become quite opinionated. It is absolutely adorable. She has more words in her little vocabulary than I can even list. She will finally try to say just about anything you ask her to say. A few favorites lately: 
*buffalo (buh-buh-lo)
*tiger (tiiii-guh)
*turtle (tur-tuhl)
*Elmo (el-momo)
*book (boo)
*more (moy...a reminder from Hallie's baby days)
Her vocabulary and understanding is amazing. She can follow two step commands and really loves trying to explain things to us! And she has a new love for Elmo that's just too cute to not let her see an episode now and again. 

Today she spent her half birthday with two bottom molars coming in, a runny nose, and a low grade fever. She was a bit grumpy, but we headed to church where she surprised Gramps and RahRah by walking up and saying hi. Then she sat with them during a large part of the service (we sat right behind them). We "celebrated" (um, we just are lunch) at Rosa's. Harper had some rice, chips and queso and some chicken. Then she got a little treat of M&Ms with her goldfish while I went to school to work. :o) Seriously, Harper did turn 18 months today...but we didn't make a big deal out of it. Jonathan did take her to Toys R Us to get a new Nose Frida...and came home with an Elmo chair! Haha. Daddy is a sucker! 

Happy 18 months, sweet love!! 

It was hard to get a picture of this little girl...she's always on the move! 

Who needs a fancy PBK chair when you can have Elmo?! Ha!

Oh yes. And she had a powdered donut!

So big, she can just read to herself!
