Here’s my last monthly post for 2014! Harper has been so excited about Christmas this year!

Today we took her on a mini-train ride and she loved it. She’s been a little unsure of the cold weather – it’s 50 degrees here in Texas!

I totally missed my monthly update for October, but it was a busy month for us! Here are a few pics of us with our little Harper from this month and last.

We stopped by the park and then played at the children’s museum while Drew’s mom (Gram) and Tod were visiting. It’s fun to see how each visit to the museum has differed as Harper has grown. This time, she was much more independent and we practically had to drag her out of there.

And, of course, more swimming.

Summer in Texas is long and hot and long. We don’t do much except hurry from an air-conditioned car to an air-conditioned house. Luckily our neighborhood has a pool and Harper loves to swim! Other than that, we hang out in the backyard with the hose sprayer on mist and popsicles and pigtails.

And yes, sometimes we drink from the water table. Whatever we need to do to stay cool.

Harper is almost 16 months old and she’s been really enjoying playing in our new house – particularly the carpeted playroom! After living in a house with concrete floors, carpet is a luxury for her (and me!) We can roll around and lie on the floor and play!

I had my camera on and asked her to sit for a picture and you won’t believe what she did! She sat down and smiled right up at me. Multiple times! I was amazed! This is a great new development!
