19 months old!!!!

Dear Harper,

Sweet girl you are 19 months old!!! Of course, the big news is that you are WALKING!!!  It has been a long time coming, but what a beautiful sight it is to behold.  We are all so proud of you (and Hudson cannot wait to take you to Great Wolf Lodge to celebrate).  You just took off one day and right away you were an expert walker. I think you are so happy to be able to keep up with your big brother and the view is much better from a walking position. :)

You have added a ton of words this month. I honestly cannot keep track of how many words you know.  You are our little chatterbox.  You have “roll call” a lot (especially when we are in the car for some reason) where you go through the list to figure out where everyone is (Dada, Mama, Bubba, Nana, Pop).  You are loving giving fist bumps which cracks me up and you want one from each person.

You LOVE your baby dolls.  You have one in your hands almost at all times.  You sleep with RG3, a baby doll and a puppy. I think you could take or leave the puppy, but Hud insists you need the puppy in your bed. You still love your bop.  I have no intention of taking it away from you anytime soon, but we have tried to limit it to sleep only.  If it is out of sight, then you are okay.  You definitely ask for it at night and naps though!  You still love to be rocked before bed and I hope that is something you like for a long time to come.

You are definitely eating like a bird these days.  It is a HUGE change from your eat anything in sight in the not-so-distant-past. 

You make me laugh every day.  You have quite the spunky personality and you definitely have your opinion about things. 

You are not a huge fan of the pool yet.  You tolerate it if you can float in your raft and don’t have to actually be in the water.  But, when you are done, you are done. And you start signing all done immediately. We are keeping our fingers crossed this changes soon, otherwise it is going to be a long, hot summer.

Baby girl, we love you so very much! And we thank God every day for both you and your brother.
