Month8

Look at me!

Harper Sue is standing up more and more everyday. Yesterday she stood up in the tub in order to reach the spout. Two days ago she stood up to in order to better investigate our luggage. This morning she stood up to reach for a toy on the ottoman.

I’m amazed at how good her balance is already. It looks ridiculous to see such a small frame reach such vertical height but it seems completely natural to Harper.

Newport Beach Weekend

We are in Newport Beach this weekend for our friends Brett and Carol Anne’s wedding.

Yesterday Harper Sue woke up at her usual time of 5:19am and after some booby time she was ready for snuggles with papa.

Then we loaded up and headed from our hotel to a nearby Starbucks. 70% of the walk was through massive empty parking lots. Gotta love it down here ;)

Then we headed east to Orange and the beautiful Santiago Oaks Park where Brett and Carol Anne tied the knot.

The wedding ended early enough for us to b-line to the beach where Harper Sue enjoyed digging in the sand. She has played in dry sand before at our neighborhood playground but wet sand was something completely different and she was mesmerized for a full 10 minutes.

  1. Barbara Lord: Looks like a fun weekend :) She's really getting bigger! We look forward to seeing all of you on Feb27/28…

  2. Elissa: omg! She is getting so much personality. What fun!

8th Mirthday

Hard to believe but Harper Sue keeps getting older- we where sure this would have stopped by now? Even Chia Pets have a growth halt after a month or two! But to our amazement she just keeps getting older. At this rate she may even become a teenager some day… no WAY! Enough crazy talk.

Here’s a picture of her on her 8th mirthday for the archives.
