Fingers and Toes

Harper Sue is a pretty lucky girl… both to have all her toes AND to have Rob as her Dada.

  1. Sue Woodruff: Never imagined counting fingers and toes could be so much fun. Really charming clip of Rob and Harper Sue .Loved…

  2. nanci corzine: So good to see you, Rob, with Harper and having so much fun... lessons on what's important. What a joy…

Park Life

When it’s sunny in San Francisco everyone hits Dolores Park. Harper Sue is no exception.

She just recently started climbing on top of us. It’s incredibly fun.

  1. nanci corzine: Seeing your little family on these snippets always makes my heart warm and cuddly... the next best thing to actually…

Hanging with Lilia

… literally.

Our friend Lilia came over for a play date recently. They had a great time exploring the back deck and seeing who could climb the highest and hang the longest. Lilia was the clear winner in both categories.

Some of you might remember Lilia as she was the first baby Ira ever met (Ira was 4 months, Lilia was 8 months).

Most of you have seen Harper Sue in some of Lilia’s baby clothes. Lilia’s mom and I have a similar fashion sense when it comes to dressing our little ones.


  1. Laura: ahhhh, loved seeing the side by sides of our kidlets!

  2. nanci corzine: Was so good meeting Lilia and her momma the last time I was over. All of you are so fortunate…

  1. nanci corzine: "momma's little helper". Looks like she was being gentle with the flowers and learning a lot about texture, color, smell...…

  2. grammie tu tu: She'll soon have differetn kinds of flowers to examine in Maui :)

Yogurt from a Cup?

Whole Foods has at least 4 different brands of yogurt smoothies for toddlers. This was not any of them. This was regular yogurt that I was attempting to use in my lunch lesson “How to use a spoon”. Instead, Harper applied her learnings from a previous lesson “How to use a glass”.

The end result was good, full container of yogurt consumed!

  1. nanci corzine: ... and I noticed experimenting with the solidness of the glass... she's so inquisitive... love that girl. We're off to…

Sounds the Elephants Make

Harper Sue has been working on mimicking the sounds the animals make. Currently, she’s pretty good at sounding like a horse, can roar like a lion, and is working on honing her elephant (as seen in the video below).

  1. nanci corzine: What a wonderful "wake up" vision for a Sunday morning. Can't wait to hear the horse and lion. What fun…

  2. Grammie Tu Tu: Love this picture:) I've printed some from the play room set for both alpine and Maui .

Wall Cruising

Harper Sue has been cruising along the walls of the house a lot this past week. She’s also been hauling ass down the hall pushing her wagon. I would not be surprised if she decided to try a first step before we leave for Maui.

Walking is such a difficult skill to master. Rob was reminded recently that walking is essentially falling forward and catching yourself with every step.

I’m so looking forward to walking around town with her not to mention how many additional skills she can learn (ex: getting dressed) once she’s mastered a steady stand. Fun!

  1. nanci corzine: It's been awhile since I've checked my email. So fun catching up with Harper and her advancing growth. You guys…

  2. Grammie Tu Tu: It will be fun watching Harper and Zacky run around, chasing each other in Maui :) He recognizes her in…

Reading with Grandma

Grandma Corzine (aka Memere) came for a quick visit yesterday with her sister (aka Harper Sue’s great Aunt Kay). It was a fast and furious activity day that included swim class with a 3-person cheer squad on the benches, luncheon, and finally ┬ástory time with Memere:

  1. nanci corzine: What a wonderful visit and Kay was thrilled to finally meet Harper. 6 weeks was too long not to see…
