Harper Sue is a pretty lucky girl… both to have all her toes AND to have Rob as her Dada.
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.
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.
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!
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).
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!
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 story time with Memere:
