SIX months

Monday, my sweet little Harper was 6 months old. SIX months old already. It really does seem like she was just born yesterday.

A few stats

- She is rolling all over the place. 
- She loves her exersaucer
- The girl loves to eat. There is nothing she won't eat. ;)
- She loves her sisters. 

At her 6 month check up, she was:

15lbs, 9 oz & 27 in long

She's long & lean! :)

State Fair of Texas

A few weekends ago, we went to the fair. It was super crowded, but the weather was perfect. The girls had a blast riding rides, eating fair food, and looking at all the animals. Harper was so good. She slept the majority of the time, but when she was awake, she just played in her little bassinet. I think she enjoyed the fresh air. ;)

4 months old

Thursday, Oct 8. . . . Harper was 4 months old! 

 I cannot believe she is already 4 months old. I wish I could slow down time, and keep her a baby for a little while longer. 

She is 13.9 lbs & 26 1/4 long. She is long & slim. 
She had to get two shots, and she did great as usual. 

- rolled over from back to front 10/2/15
- still HATES tummy time.
- loves to nurse, and snuggle.
- she chews on everything....from toys to her fingers & toes!
- started cereal on 10/8 & she LOVES it.

Her older sisters have given her the nickname, 'Smiley.' 
She wakes up smiling, and is just the happiest baby. :)

1st Day of School

Today was the first day of school for my kiddos! 

Rylee - 5th grade!

Landry - 1st Grade!

I cannot believe I have a 5th grader, and a 1st grader this year. It feels like I just dropped them off at Kindergarten. Boy, how time flies. They have great teachers this year, and they seem excited. Today was a great day! Praying the rest of the school is year is just as awesome. ;)

So, it's just me & this sweet girl at home now that the older girls are back in school. I don't think she minds one bit.

Here are a few stats:

- 11 lbs, 9.5 oz
- 24 inches long

- she loves to eat, and to be held.
- loves to smile
- DOES not like car trips. 

She's doing great, and growing like a weed.  Of course, we ended 
the appointment with her 2 month shots. Boo!

1 month old

On July 8th, Harper was a month old. 

Harper, you have been such a blessing to our little family. Your big sisters just adore you, and want to be around you all time. I can't believe you are already a month old. 


 - You are starting to stay awake more during the day, and you eat every 2 hours, although lately you have been stretching your feedings to about 
every 2 1/2 - 3 hrs. 

- You do NOT like to sleep in your bassinet, you would rather sleep in your Mamaroo, which I am ok with it, as long as you sleep! ;)

- You DO NOT like your car seat, which makes momma sad. We are always on the go, and it makes my heart hurt that you cry while in your seat. 

- You LOVE to be held, and you always know when your momma is in the room. You can be sound asleep, and will wake when momma walks near you.

The Graduate

Last Friday (June 5th), my baby graduated Kindergarten.
 Seems just like yesterday she was born.

Class of 2027

 Landry & Ms. Nichol. 
Sure going to miss her next year!

Harper Sloane is here!

She's here! I was originally scheduled for an induction on June 17, but miss priss had other plans. ;) I went into labor Sunday, June 8, around midnight. I timed my contractions for a few hours, and headed to the hospital around 2 am. I thought for sure the hospital would send me home for false labor, but nope! It was the real deal. 

And speaking of June 8th, that's also Rylee's birthday. So, baby sister decided to come on big sisters birthday. So crazy! 

We are so blessed to have a healthy baby girl. I will post more later, but just wanted to do a quick update since I've neglected this blog for the last 6 months. ;)

First Dance Competition

Last weekend was the first dance competition of the season. This was Rylee's first competition with a new studio, and Landry's first competition ever. The girls did so good, and we had a great weekend.
