Cinco Meses

Happy Five Months Harper!

Harper's Top Five at Five:

#5 - Eating. Harper has five bottles a day of about 6 oz of breast milk mixed with rice cereal. Once a day she's having prunes and vegetables. So far, our veggies have been squash (not her favorite), sweet potatoes (a hit) and carrots (also a hit). I guess I should also include her hand and almost anything in her hand in this subject since most of the time, things go straight into her mouth.

#4 - Sleeping. She has the occasional off night but for the most part, the girl is a great sleeper. She goes down at 8:30pm and usually sleeps until about 8:00am. She's not too into naps and only goes for about an hour each time.

#3 - Mommy's Girl. Harper has just recently gotten into a "Mommy Phase". When she's really tired, if I'm not the one putting her down she has a meltdown. We're trying to break this habit by switching off turns on putting her down. Jared is alot tougher than I'd be to put up with all of that crying. She normally just wears herself out and falls to sleep. A side note to #4, she can nap for hours if she's cuddled up on Jared or me. I know this is a habit we should break but I just love snuggling up with that little girl.

#2 - The Voice. Whoa! Harps has found her vocal chords. She's a bit shy in public but in small groups and one on one, she can gabber at top volume.

#1 - Grabbing, grabbing, grabbing. Harper is grabbing at anything and everything in site including jewelry, hair, toys, books, iPhones and bottles. She's made a couple of swipes at her brother (Rooney the Dog) and sister (Kitty) but they're too quick for her. Its fun to see her learning how to use her hands. I'm really hoping she develops her father's hand eye coordination and not her mother's - Jared was a collegiate athlete and I run into tables walking through my own house.

"Enough with the pictures Mom!"

Cute stickers indeed. I just realized those were stickers. Thought all these moms with babies had 12 different onesies. I'm slow.

She is so darling. Love her little outfit! And, love your blog!
