This cute gal! You are growing up so fast, Harper Noelle, and are beginning to find your voice in this loud and crazy family. You're not afraid to let us know when you need attention, but you snap back to happy in no time. You greet me every morning with the biggest smiles on your face, and I'm beginning to think of you as our laid-back, glass half-full child.
You love to be tickled under your neck. You think it's funny to "give kisses" by licking my cheek. You so enjoy bath time and being read to. You keep a close eye on what Ella and Cade are up to. Ella adores you and makes you laugh. Cade means well, but he's a little rough and makes you nervous. You usually look to make sure I'm watching closely when he plays with you. =)
You can hold yourself in a sitting position for a few seconds, and it won't be long before you're sitting on your own. You don't stay on your back and roll over the second we put you down. Sometimes you get stuck on your belly though and don't like it. You really show no interest in moving or scooting around yet, and why would you? There are more than enough people willing to do your bidding! =) You are chewing and drooling like crazy, so I'm wondering if we'll see some teeth soon. You eat one cereal meal a day and are enjoying trying new fruits and veggies every few days. You also love getting nibbles off our plates. Ella and Cade want to give you a bite of everything they eat, and I'm sure you'd love it, too, if I would let them. You take a short morning nap and a longer nap in the afternoon. You take your last bottle around 8pm, then go down for the night and usually sleep 10-12 hours. You are getting chunky and we love it. You wear mostly 9 month clothes, and we are thinking it won't be long before you are bigger than your brother. =)
You bring so much joy to each and every day, Harper, and your mommy and daddy love you so very much!!
