Harper 6 Months

Harper turned 6 months old about three weeks ago, but better late than never! 

I swear this little girl gets happier with each passing day.  She is the easiest baby ever.  She has the most pleasant and laid back personality and I am so thankful for the joy she brings to her family.  She begins each day with a huge smile and throughout the day I often tell her that she is smiling so big it must hurt.  She has been sitting up since she turned 5 months old, but she can now sit as long as her happy little heart desires.  She loves to sit and play with toys, or watch and laugh as her brother "shoots hoops".  She is rocking on her hands and knees and I can tell how much she is dying to crawl.  She turns, rolls, and even scoots backwards, but for the first time yesterday she "army crawled" twice forward!  It wasn't long, but hey, she's trying.  And boy, this momma isn't sure she is ready for TWO mobile babies!  She is a great eater and is not picky at all.  Honestly, she is a little too eager for each spoonful of cereal/fruits/veggies.  People who have seen her eat describe feedings as shark attacks :)  (She gets that from me, just FYI)  She is still nursing, but each feeding is a struggle as she is becoming more and more easily distracted.  She is a little all over the map when it comes to her sleeping.  Some nights she is a champ and sleeps 10-12 hours.  Other nights, I am up every 2-3 hours.  She used to be the world's best sleeper, but I am not claiming that title any longer.  I was chalking her night time wakings up to teething, but this has been going on for a month and still no pearly whites. Baby girl is a thumb sucker and it is one of the most precious sights ever!  She is about as bald as it gets, but what little hair she does have is medium brown.  Her eyes are dark, but they are not brown.  They are a very interesting dark blue/grey/green.  I can never tell what her eye color is because it seems to change on a daily basis.  She may be lucky and her eyes will be more like accessories to whatever ensemble she may be sporting.  Speaking of ensembles, she is wearing nine months but will soon be graduating to twelve month clothes.  She is even wearing size 3 diapers to fit over those awesome thunder thighs.  No baby has ever rocked thunder thighs like this little girl.  If I do say so myself, she makes chunky look good! :)

Sweetest profile EVER!!!
