water baby

This last month has been quite busy! The month started out with a visit from Grandpa and Julie!

My sister gave birth to her beautiful baby girl, Avery Leigh! I went to New York to visit for a few days and enjoyed some newborn snuggles. I can’t wait for Harper and Avery to meet – they will be BFF’s!

Harper will be spending a lot of time in the pool this summer – it’s the only thing to do here when it’s this hot!

We took her to the big pool to swim for the first time! She loved watching all the other kids, but didn’t like when she got splashed in the face.

Harper had her first sink bath and had the time of her life! She was so excited the whole time – particularly when Maeby jumped up on the counter to check out the water.

I put shoes on her for the first time and almost died of the cuteness!

Harper clapped for the first time and I managed to get it on camera.

She’s been more and more active – scooting backwards and in circles, pulling herself to standing, trying to crawl forward (but having a hard time getting over that foot.)

Now that Harper is 9 months, I’m finally getting around to packing up some things she’s outgrown – her swing and her bumbo.

Her first time in the swing:

And when it’s too hot to do anything else, we play dress up. Of course, I had to dress her up like my childhood doll – they look exactly the same!
