Harper is 11 months old!

Our girl is getting big! We've been asked more than once if she and Spenser are twins. She has cut three teeth on top (all in one week) and is working on the fourth. She loves to play pat-a-cake and peekaboo. She immediately starts dancing when she hears music. No real words yet, but she has lots of babbling. She can stand independently for up to 30 seconds at a time and is able to squat down to pick something up and stand back up without a problem. She's been swimming and seems to be a natural. She automatically rolls onto her tummy and starts kicking her feet.. She is very determined and, dare I say it, stubborn. She is absolutely delighted by the cat and endlessly fascinated by the computer.

Harper is 10 months old!

Only a bit delayed in getting this published. Turns out two kids are twice the fun and more than twice the work. Harper has cut an upper tooth. It's not a central incisor, so she's looking a bit snaggle toothed. However, she is working on cutting both front teeth at the same time!. She is quite speedy with the crawling and will go up the stairs in a dash if you are not keeping a close eye on her. The girl's appetite is HUGE. For dinner, she will start with a bowl of mandarin oranges, followed by green beans and then pasta stars with sauce chased down with some graham crackers or animal crackers. After a bit of a wipe down, she will then be trying to pick food off of our plates. Guess she needs lots of energy to keep up with her brother. The walking should come any day now....watch out, Spenser!

Harper is enjoying her ride in the backpack while I get some yardwork done.
