Naked baby :)  
We have a diaper rash that will just not leave us alone -- so we had to have naked baby time.  We only lasted about 20 minutes before we needed dinner -- so we will probably have more naked baby time tomorrow as well.  Hopefully it is nice and sunny again tomorrow.

Tippy Toes

She is always trying to see up and over things.  
Little Miss Nosy Pants!

My poor baby :(
She had to give two viles of blood today and it took attempts on both arms :(  They tried on one side and then they lost her vein so they then had to try again on the other arm :(  Poor baby cried and cried and cried and I just had to hold her down :(  It was so sad :(  But luckily she had two very nice nurses who tried everything to distract her and to get it done quickly.  All in all it was probably only five minutes and afterwards I got a great big hug and no more tears.  But it was a LOOOOOOOONNNG five minutes!!

Mmmmm I love Ritz Crackers!

I was not feeling well today so I did not take that many pictures.  In fact, I only took a few right before she was headed to bed and while I was eating some soup.  This picture just cracked me up because it looks like she is loving those crackers way to much!!  (which by the way she did absolutely love trying Ritz for the first time -- who doesn't like their buttery goodness).

Oh what a bruise! 
This one has to be the worst one yet.  She is ruff and tumble, but this one took her down.  She was crawling on the floor in her pj's and crawled underneath her high chair.  She stood herself up and was holding on playing under the high chair when her feet slipped right out from underneath her and her little head bounced off the bottom cross bar of the high chair.  Poor baby.  She cried for a good two minutes-- amazing that it wasn't longer considering that bruise.  If you catch it just right it looks like she has a really strong cheek bone shadow.

Our little farm girl :)

Today was a beautiful sunny day outside.  It looked like a gorgeous day, but it was pretty chilly out.  We still decided to venture out and enjoy a little bit of the sunshine.  We just went for a little walk around to check things out and in the process we took a few pictures.  

We did check out the asparagus/weed patch -- so far the weeds are winning, but Kurt is trying his hardest to help the asparagus take over instead :)

Lets hope it warms up this week!

 Cradle Cap

Harper still has some Cradle Cap (which every time I try to say it, it comes out as Cradle Crap -- no matter how hard I try to say it the right way).  Anyways, the doctor said we should rub some Hydrocortizone cream on it, let it sit for a few hours and then scrub it out really good.  The doctor's words were something along the line of most babies are bald so it is easy to apply the cream -- good luck to you - you really need to get it in there.  Ha -- thanks Doc :)  So I have now put it off for a few days and decided today was the day to attempt it.  Here are some shots of her lovely hair do with the cream.

And here is her cute little grin all squeaky clean after her bath.  We will probably have to do it at least one more time but it seemed to work really well this time!

And in case anyone was curious -- she officially weighs 17.6 pounds at her 9 month doctor's appt.  She is a little peanut for her weight, a medium peanut for her height, but her noggin is huge :) hahaha  Guess it just means she will be a genius :)

Harper loves playing in the laundry basket.  I love this picture of her pigtails fanning out all over the place.  A few minutes after this picture was taken she decided she needed to stand up in the basket.  Well of course that led to her tipping over and bonking her head, but for some reason she has absolutely no fear and a very high pain threshold.  She fell right over and didn't say one peep -- it happens often.  She is one tough cookie.

And then she flashes this sweet little face at you and she gets away with everything :)

After staying at the gym for an extra crossfit class today Harper is practicing her pushups :)  She is getting her form down :)  Carey would be proud :)

And did you see how cool that was outside :) haha I have no idea what was out there -- nothing that I could see-- but whatever she saw was AWESOME! :)

Woo Hoo!!

So, as you can tell from the title, I finally got my new camera.  I ended up getting the Canon EOS 60D with the 50mm 1.8 lens and I could not be more excited!  I love it!!  I could only play with it for a few minutes this afternoon with a sleep deprived baby, but I love it love it love it!!  I love how I can finally get the dreamy blurred background.  I can't wait to play around with it in the next couple days to figure it out.

Tonight when I got home from work I had about five minutes before she needed to be in bed.  But she was so cute with her crooked little pigtails and bright smiley face that I knew I needed to at least try and take a picture.  It was terrible lighting, she was all over the place, but we still got a cute picture at least.

We tried them out for the first time today and we think they are adorable! :)  They stick straight out to the side just like Pippi Longstocking!

I love this picture!!!

Who is this big girl :)
Here she is 9 months old!!  Can't believe how big she is getting.

Here is the 9 month recap:
She has four teeth.  Two on the top and two on the bottom.
(The top two are really spaced out just like her Grandma Birdies :) )
She loves to army crawl all over the place.
She can easily pull herself up onto anything.
Favorite food this month is definitely Yogurt Bites!
She sleeps from 7:30pm to about 7:00am every night (as long as she is nice and toasty)
She takes good naps when we are home -- not so much when we are out anymore :(
We have a Doctor's appt on Tuesday were we will figure out how much we weigh - I guess about 20lbs.

Where is Harper?

There she is :)


April 9th, 2013

This is a terrible picture but the only one we took today.  I tried using Photoshop elements to darken it up a little bit, but I need a lot more classes in photoshop before I know what I am doing.

But regarding the picture :)  She took a super long nap and I had to wake her up to go to work.  When she woke up her hair was EVERY where.  She started with a smile so I ran downstairs to get the camera, but by the time we took the picture the smile was completely gone.  Which is why this is the only picture we have and it doesn't even really show you how crazy her hair was.

We received a pretty sweet tunnel over the weekend that has led to hours and hours of fun!!  We washed it up and brought it inside and it now sits in the very center of our living room.  We love climbing up and sliding down the other side, playing with the twirly birds and playing peek-a-boo.  It is a pretty terrific tunnel.  Thank you to our big cousins for giving it to us!!

This picture cracks me up!  She figured out she has hair bows in and likes yanking them out and eating them every once in a while.  So, I thought we could switch it up and try a headband.  Well, that just means she tries to pull it out and it stays right on her head but keeps getting more and more cockeyed.  So this lovely hair-do combined wither her give me food right now look just cracks me up.  She is a girl who knows what she wants and at this moment it was food :)


April 6th, 2013

It was a beautiful sunny day here in PA so we went outside for a picnic.  It wasn't really that warm, but still really sunny so we took advantage of it.  Tomorrow it is supposed to be a lot warmer but rainy :(  Hopefully the rain will stay away and the warm weather will come and stay.

Just settling in for a little reading under Daddy's nightstand.  
Looks like a comfy place to hang out doesn't it :)


April 4th, 2013

Trying out our new fancy sunglasses.  We like leaving them on for about 10 seconds, but we really really like chewing on them.  They are tasty.

Sitting pretty in our Easter tutu made by mommy.
