Goodnight Pop Pop

Harper Sue’s second word is officially “Pop Pop” (aka: Grandpa Pete). She loves the name so much she’ll apply it to everyone on her goodnight list.

You’ll also notice her giggle fit when we say “Zach!”.

Saying goodnight to all the people in the pictures hanging on the wall is part of her nap/night ritual. We switch out these pictures every couple weeks based on who we’ve seen.

She’s also begun to say “Dada” and “Mama” when referencing Rob and I more and more often. It’s such a treat :)

  1. Elissa: We just love all the pix and videos of Harper. I know I rarely reply, but we always look and…

Easter with The Lord’s

We met up with The Lord’s Gang at Huntington Gardens on Sunday morning and spent the day meandering through the beautiful grounds. We took an unplanned break near a lovely pond and gave the kiddo’s a chance to explore.

Harper Sue attempted to purse snatch G Grandma Sue’s bag, pull Cousin Zach’s hair, and wrestle her Dada to the ground before convincing Grandma Tu Tu to carry her into a restricted zone. All in a days adventure for our sinister ‘lil SueBee.

All in all it was a lovely day and Grandpa Lord posted  some nice pictures of Harper Sue on her best behavior:

Grandpa Lord <3's Harper

On our last night in Maui we took Barb and Pete to dinner at Sarento’s on the Beach. Harper Sue came with us to assure that we each spent some time walking on the beach during dinner. Pete covered most of the “walk Harper” shifts.

Grandpa Lord Meets Moby

Grandpa Lord was introduced to our current favorite baby carrier: the Moby Wrap. It’s essentially a long piece of double knit fabric but the magic is in the way you configure it to hold the baby. It typically requires some instruction and Rob was happy to oblige.

(She would have got you a present but the only think she can make right now is poopy diapers so this is better.)

  1. Pete aka Pop Pop: Hi Patti, Rob, Harper, Ira, The bib and the photos are great. How was your day at the beach? Did…

    • Rob Lord: Great day @ the beach. Ira's fetch is improving. He's a herder, not a retriever by nature. =)
