Harper | Seven Months

Oh, Harper. Mama needs to get her act together. She's a little late writing your seventh month update - how seven months have come and gone so quickly I have no idea - since you're practically eight months, but technically we're still in the right time frame. You've blossomed into such a sweet and beautiful little girl. You make our life so much more exciting, and words can't describe how much I love you. I feel like I need to pinch myself sometimes because I still can't believe you're mine. 
I love you more than you'll ever know. And more than that.

Nicknames: Harpie, Harpie Bug, Harps

Weight: 20 pounds

Height: Probably around 26 inches by now - you're pajamas are feeling a little snug around your toes these days.

Looks: LIKE SUCH A BIG GIRL. And I can't decide if I absolutely love it or wanna cry. Still looking at me with those big blue eyes, hair is getting longer by the day, and dimples are still melting my heart every time you smile!

Personality: Definitely not a shy baby... You seem to let anybody hold you and you'll normally flash a smile at anyone (as long as you aren't hungry or tired!). You definitely have a sense of humor, and I even think you know that you're funny. You're kinda a ham. You like attention on you, and when it's not, you make sure it comes back around.

Eating: Doing great with eating. Trying more and more fruits and vegetables with each week. We started using those little squeeze pouches, especially if we're on the go. Your FAVORITE is apples & sweet potatoes with cinnamon! 

Sleeping: Sleeping was off and on...Some nights are better than others. Being sick right before vacation didn't help, and neither does your new tooth!

Wearing: Wearing mostly 6 month clothes. Size 3 in diapers. 6-9 month clothes fit the best though. You're small on top, chunky legs on the bottom which make it difficult for shorts...

Favorite Things: The water is still your favorite - you loved the ocean this past month! You loved visiting Nannie too! BAE's new apartment! Spending time with your bestie, Nora. Tractor rides around MiMi and PeePaw's house.

Least Favorite Things: Taking naps. #nonapninja 

Within the last month:
  • You went to the local zoo for the first time! You slept mostly, but woke up at the end and loved looking at the animals - but mostly the trees.
  • You went to Nora's 2nd birthday party!
  • We celebrated Father's Day for Daddy!
  • You went on your first vacation to Savannah & Hilton Head and dipped your toes in the ocean for the first time! You ROCKED IT OUT the whole trip - even with a cold!
  • We had family pictures done on campus, and you did so good despite it being literally, 100 degrees outside.
  • Your Gigi & Gramps (still needs a name!) bought you a Smart Trike, and you loved it!
  • We visited Nannie as much as we could!
  • We helped BAE move into her new apartment! Yay!
  • You celebrated your first July 4th!
  • Daddy had a day off, so we had lunch together and went shopping.
  • You went to the Farmer's Market (slept through that) but was awake for donuts with Aunt Ashley and Nora!
  • You loved taking tractor rides at MiMi's house, so much so, that you fell asleep.
  • You say "Mama" a lot (along with many other babbles - chatty girl!)
  • Your first tooth broke through at the end of the month! Ouch! (Explaining lots of crying...)
