2 months (a little late)

Dear Harper,

I'm a little late writing this to you, but that's because we have had a busy week with family in town for your blessing. This month has been the month of firsts...and it has been so fun! You slept your first 5 hours in a row! I couldn't believe it. And the funny thing is that I felt so incredibly rested afterward. You usually sleep quite a bit in the morning and then are up for the day around 12:00. That's because I take you walking in our jogging stroller every morning with a friend, and you sleep the entire time. I'm not quite sure how you find it easy to sleep when you're bouncing around like crazy, but you must find it quite relaxing.

Also, you are loving your playmat these days! I can just set you on it and you squeal and go crazy. You love hitting the toys that hang down from it, and each time you do, you get all excited! In fact, I'm writing this write now while you're playing on it and you are having the time of your life! This playmat has allowed me to get quite a few things done around the house, like doing the dishes, folding laundry, etc. But, I must say that when I hear you from downstairs squealing upstairs, I end up coming up and just watching you because you are so dang cute! So, I am getting more things done around the house, but I also just sit and watch you have so much fun on it!

You smiled at me, on purpose :), for the first time this month. And each day you smile more and more. I love to just sit there and make you smile. Daddy loves it, too. He always tells you how cute you are. He does this thing called the rocket, and we think you love it, but maybe you just think we are really weird. Daddy picks you up and holds you like you're laying on your stomach and then shoots you from one side to the other really quickly.

This month, you also graced us with your first of three blowout diapers. And they all happened in one week. That was quite an experience. But I must say you were in quite a good mood after each of these.

You get cuter and cuter everyday! I love being able to stay home with you and watch you grow! You have quite the personality.

You love visiting Grandma and Grandpa Taylor's house. They have a playmat for you, too, but it's different, so you get really excited when you're on it.

You also LOVE the outdoors. If you're ever in a bad mood (which really doesn't happen that often) we can walk outside with you and you will instantly stop crying and just look around. You love taking in all that's going on outside.

We love you so much and are excited to see all that you're going to do/learn this next month.

I love you.

Love,

Mom

Swim anyone?

Took Harper swimming for the first time while Josh's family was here. She really liked it. Took her a minute to get used to the water because it was a little bit colder than her normal bath water, but after that, she loved it! Love her swimsuit!!!
Putting her feet in.
My husband is quite embarrassing when we go swimming. Has to have his goggles and flippers. haha.
Me and Harper. I was so excited to get her in the water that I forgot to take my shirt off...
Here's the part of the family that actually got in the water. Of course we all had to take turns holding Harper in the water and taking pictures with her.
