18 months

Harper. 
You turn 18 months old today!
I have been horrible at keeping up on your baby book.
(Like....I haven't opened it since you were born.)
Bad mommy. Bad!
So let me get a few things down.
Hmmmm.....you started walking mid-June.
You haven't been too interested in talking (so different Henry!) until recently, but understand everything very well.
You've been saying the usual hi, bye, nigh-nigh, shoes, baby, etc for a while, but are starting to repeat more and more what we say. 
You have a funny (cute) voice.
For a lot of the summer you were super feisty and screamed a lot, but in the last week you have totally changed and are back to your happy, easy-going, self.
You like picking on your brother. You know what bothers him....and you love it.
The other day Henry was putting together a big floor puzzle and you naturally got in the way. This made him mad so you layed yourself down on top of the puzzle with a happy smirk on your face and wouldn't move while your brother sat there and cried.
You know, stuff like that.
But you're so cute when you do stuff like that it's hard to get mad.

You're figuring out your spoon and fork and doing pretty well!
(and I'm learning to relax a little and let you try even when it's messy)









So, Happy 18 Months!
Harper Bloom. Har-Pear. Harper Bloomin' Onion.
We love you!!

Awww, I agree - she is so stinkin' cute! And way to go, mom, on letting her use a spoon by herself. That's always a tough step for me!

Happy 18 months, Harper Bloom!!!

Oh my goodness I just laughed so hard at the puzzle thing! That is too funny! I can so relate - Kinsley loves to push Kaeden's buttons big time.

Poor Henry...cute little stinker Harper! :) I'm sure he'll figure out a way to tease back!
Happy 18 months, Harper!

Such a sweetie! She is absolutely beautiful -- and I've heard second borns are usually more feisty, so she sounds normal :)

P.S. Glad I'm not the only bad mommy that hasn't kept up well with the baby book :/
