Standing up was a big deal for Harper Sue about a month ago but didn’t last longer than a few days. I’m happy to say standing up is cool again! Most likely because she is intrigued by the vantage that is becoming more familiar due to her HTV.
This morning she was giving Mini Angel Bear the view from way up.
I’ve admittedly been a bit lackadaisical about taking Harper Sue out to a restaurant. I actually think it has more to do with how lovely our mealtimes are at home rather than any strong apprehension about public spaces. Whatever the reason we finally crossed the bridge (twice) last weekend at our favorite local diner, Boogaloo’s.
Our first breakfast on Saturday was outside seating with Ira and went pretty well. The small table’s outside where a bit challenging to keep the “grab zone” free and I ended up with yogurt on my pants as testament. Harper had a great time and woofed down a Kiddy Kake and a bunch of fruit while attempting to keep tabs on the bustling waitstaff.
Our second breakfast we left Ira at home and grabbed a nice large table. Rob fed the baby while I ate (one thing that didn’t happen on the maiden trip) and then we switched so Rob could eat too. It was a good system and Harper Sue was thrilled to be back where all the breakfast action is.
We are lucky to have three kid-friendly breakfast spots within walking distance from our house and it was pretty nice to have no breakfast cleanup awaiting us when we get home
Last week Harper Sue decided she’d like to push her transport vehicle (aka: HTV) down the hall on two feet. The first time she cruised all the from our entrance landing to the end of the hallway. Not an hour later she was back for more, this time down the hall through the kitchen and back down the hall!
We’re pretty sure that her extended nap’s (2 hours/nap is not unusual) has a lot to do with her experimentation with walking.
Harper Sue recently experienced a true love of corn on the cob. She loves using her teeth and corn is the perfect level of sweet for her pallet. To date she’s enjoyed a little butter and salt on the cob. I’m planning on adding a bit of heat (paprika possibly) to the next batch.
