"How old are you, Harper?"
"Harper, show me your smile."
"Can you give your baby loves?"
On your FIRST birthday...
Weight: 17 lbs
Height: 28 and 3/4 inches
Diapers: Size 3
Clothes: Mostly 6-12, some 12-18 and even a few 3-6 months, too.
Sleep: Waking by 6:30ish and going to bed by 8ish. You take one good morning nap and one good afternoon nap.
Feeding: You are still pretty picky, but I think things are looking up! You might be starting to get over some of the textures you weren't really liking. You are still nursing, but you are starting to prefer cow's milk over Momma's milk. I think it is because you like to be independent. I'm glad you are transitioning well, but it has been really hard for me! You still nurse 3-4 times a day, but only for a few minutes.
What you are up to:
-You make us laugh constantly!!
-You had your first little hair snippet to cut off your rat tail and clean up your bangs.
-You sign for milk.
-You sit like a big girl with your knees and legs turned out to either side of you. I was never able to sit like that, it looks like it hurts!
-You walk behind things to roll. (walking/push toys) The faster the better! If you wipe out, you laugh (most of the time) and get up as fast as you can to keep going!
-You give a nasty scowl if you're not sure about something.
-You say "oh wow-wow-wow!" when you see something interesting/new/pretty.
-You hold your baby dolls like such a little girl without anyone showing you how (you always put them up between your shoulder and neck and then tilt your head down on them).
-You also hold your flip phone (that looks nothing like Momma or Daddy's phone) to your ear [area]...I don't know how you figure these things out!
-During Kindermusik you stood from sitting for the first time without holding on to anyone/anything! Mrs. Ginger stopped the music and we all clapped for you!! 9.19.12
-Everytime you hear the garage door open or close, you say "dada"
-You participated in your first 5K, the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure for Gigi!
-You slept with one of your dolls for the first time on 9.23.12. You were so happy-you kept kissing her and laughing...we watched you forever on the monitor!
-You noticed the moon for the first time tonight after church. You kept pointing up to it and saying "ohhhh woooow" and "ohhhhh"!
It is so much fun to watch you learn new things!!
Happy 1st birthday, Sugar Bear.
It was a magical year.
