Miss H is 14 months old!!

Harper you are FOURTEEN months old!

This month you weigh (guessing) almost 18 lbs.  You are now 29  1/2 inches long! You are wearing a size 3 diaper.  You are finally moving into your 12 month clothes. Mommy is happy because soon the seasons will change! 

Monthly stats:

FOOD: Your teachers at MDO can't believe how you eat...actually no one can.  You love food and that is good because you are a skinny butt! You love bananas, eat one every morning! Recently you have been loving oranges too.  I am thankful you don't dislike much!

Sippy Cup: Water your water still.  Here and there you have been using a straw cup, but you always ask for your regular sippy after a few drinks from the straw.  I think you are girl who doesn't like her food and drinking routine changed :-) 

Smiling: Smiling is what you do love to give out smiles to anyone.  You have recently started acting a little shy, but you still smile! Oh and the crinkly face you make now is hilarious! 

Talking:  You say momma, dada, uh-oh, and hi. This months new words are more and hot.  You are so funny about how you say them too.  You will only whisper hot while making the sign.  Your more may sound to others as a 'moh'  but it is the begins of more and you mean business when you say it too! 

Sign language:  You still can sign back to us dog, ball, water, milk, more, eat, all done, please, baby, banana, thank you, cat, hot, cheese, bread, play, gentle, elephant, bird, paci (you made your own sign for this one), and music.  Your new signs this month are more food related (imagine that) cracker, bread, apple, and help.  You have kind of transformed your milk sign though and it no longer is for milk but now you use it when you want yogurt.  I love how you make your own signs so we can communicate. Cracker is also kind of your own should tap your elbow with your hand but instead you tap your wrist.  I guess that is close enough I mean we know what you want :-)  We will continue to work on signs while you continue to increase your vocabulary verbally too! 

Obsessions: (I decided to add this one this replace awareness) BIRDS you are crazy obsessed with birds.  You love to watch them, feed them, and more.  You can sit in our front window and just watch the birds as they come and go from the feeder.  Of course you dog doesn't help out much with them...he scares them with his crazy barking.  I love that you are recognizing your world around you!

Observer:  I should change this also to my little GREATER! Walmart would love to hire you because you love to wave and say HI to everyone.  When we walk Winston at night you say HI and wave to all the things around us...there could be a person at the end of the block and you will sit and wave until they see you or wave back.  Sweet girl 

WINSTON and BOB: I love watching you with your pets.  Winston has become aware of your moves though and will go hide when he has had enough.  However you still love to find him.  Good thing you haven't figured out how to climb under the bed!  I love it best when you just sit beside him and read your books.  You also love to give them both drive by just run over kiss their backs and move on.  

Sleep: You have been doing a great job sleeping...UNTIL, molars arrived in our world.  This month you have been teething like crazy.  The worse part is it keeps you up at night and makes you very sad. I hate it when you wake up screaming like crazy....poor thing.   

Your hands: You have fine tuned your hand skills.  You can pretty much do anything with these now.  But they have spent a lot of time IN your mouth lately...thanks to those dang teeth.  

Mouth:  Tooth count- 7 1/2...we added two top molars and 1/2 of the right upper tooth this month.  Poor thing these have been pretty bad coming in.  You have drooled and chewed on your hands more this month than ever.  Oh and PACI obsessed, I think it helps to chew on your paci. 

Your legs:  Those cute little legs don't stop...EVER! You still are trying to "jump" and run.  Your favorite thing to do is stomp your feet.  Since we have pier beam floors you can really hear them stomp.  You will be sad because in our new house I don't think you will hear it as well. 

Bath time:  Little stinker...I think you are finally trying to escape from your little tub.  Recently you have tried to stand in it so we may have to move on.  Mommy will be sad! But man do you love your baths.  You love to put your face down into the water now and try to blow bubbles.  It is probably the cutest thing ever! 

Giggles:  Your giggle makes my heart smile.  I don't know how anyone could not smile when they hear a sweet baby giggle.  You have begun laughing at Winston when he rolls around on the carpet and scratches his back.  Also when he plays ball with himself.  It is funny to see you react to funny situations. 

Dislikes: You dislike it when you don't get your way...let the little fits begin! However you can normally pull it together pretty quickly.  You dislike it when its time to change dirty diapers, you would rather play. Still dislike milk..grrr! 

You had a few FIRST this month!

I love how you are becoming a fun little person who plays, sings, dances and more.  You are such a sweetie. We are very luck and blessed to be your parents.   Love you to the moon and back!
