Our Growing Girl
Here is Harper celebrating her Dadddy's birthday.
These few pictures were part of a photo collage I made for Tal and Tal's dad and my dad for Father's Day.
Playing with her poodle.
Goldie loves to lick Harper's slobber. Ew!!
Here is Harper with her grandpa (my dad) on Father's Day eating breakfast.
Harper with Grandma Mary.
We went walking at Tumwater Falls Park on Father's Day. My sister, Taylr, is having a baby in January. Taylr and Daniel's baby will be Harper's first cousin!
Just strolling the trail in her BOB stroller.
Feeding the ducks with Grandpa and Aunt Taylr.
Gnawing on a water bottle. Workin those little teeth.
My dad had so much fun playing with Harper on the toys. It was so fun to watch.
You can see her two little teeth in this picture.
What a big girl! She has changed so much this month.
This month has brought so many changes for our little girl. First of all, she is crawling! She crawled for the first time on June 10. She is just so proud of herself. We are too of course. She loves to crawl under things right now. Her favorite is getting stuck under her excersaucer.
Also, she got two teeth this month. They came at the same time on the bottom. They have made her uncomfortable on some days. But, for the most part, she is her normal happy self.
Harper just cracks us up. She is just so loving, happy, and full of spunk. I took her to visit my family in Washington this past weekend. She had a blast visiting with friends, her grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and great-grandma too. We were quite busy! Everyone always comments on how easy going she is. I agree, she is a pretty easy baby. I feel so lucky.
School is out for Tal and I now. We are so excited to spend the summer with Harper. She keeps us pretty busy around the house. I am really looking forward to blowing up her baby pool when the weather gets warmer. She has some pretty cute swimsuits to show off.
I took Harper on an 8K race this month in her BOB stroller. She slept the entire time of course. It was a very tough course but I was proud of myself for finishing and for being the only person pushing a stroller the whole time. I run my relay with my co-workers tomorrow and Saturday. We are running from Portland to Eugene in the Epic Relay. Wish us luck!
I just love my daughter so much. She has made me the happiest I have ever been in my whole life. I just watch her and thank God that I have such a beautiful baby. She is a miracle. I love her so much. Happy 9 month birthday Harper Lily!
