Harper Girl


Disclaimer: Contrary to what the above pictures might make you believe, Harper smiles ALL of the time and has the cutest smile I’ve ever seen. The only problem is when I pull out my camera to take a picture she makes the above face and just stares at it. Such a silly! One of these days, I’ll get a good smile.

And a little bit of my recent journal entry on Harper’s development, if you’re interested…

March 9, 2011

Harper has changed so much in the last week. Not only does she look so much older to me, but she’s made a lot of developmental changes. She has begun to recognize smiles and will smile back at you. She talks A LOT more. She loves to carry on conversations and has the cutest cooing and babbling. She is also beginning to giggle. She giggled for the first time for Grandma Bedke on Feb 25th and has done it about 5 times more in the last week. It’s the cutest thing ever. She is getting closer to being able to sit up. If you sit her up, she can hold herself up for a few seconds. When she is lying down, she always tries to pull herself into a sitting position. She has become a lot wigglier. She will squirm right out of her bouncer chair if we don’t buckle her in. She has started to enjoy tummy time because she is better able to lift her chest completely up so she can see. She can also roll to her side when she is on her tummy, which means she’ll probably be rolling over very soon. If you hold her hands she will stand up for a while. Her legs are very strong. She’s also beginning to learn that she has control of her hands and is becoming a little more deliberate about using them. And she found her feet! She still hasn’t discovered the joy of playing with them or sucking on them, but she found them. It’s so fun to watch her grow and develop. I love you Harper Girl!
