Because somebody helped me tend to the plants and completely destroyed my eucalyptus. Instead of getting upset I snapped a few pictures and taught her “he loves me, he loves me not.” Every week this girl seems to advance by leaps and bounds. It is wild that by only week nine she looks like a completely different toddler then she did at the beginning.

“Excuse me.” After every burp, fart or forced noise, but she always waits…just staring…until you say “excuse you,” so she can burst out laughing. I love that she  at least has manners!

I got an iPad, for me not for her, but of course I may have downloaded a few Daniel Tiger apps. She of course loves it, but it’s the time that the iPad goes bye-bye that is toddler, stage-5, meltdown. Today’s lasted about 20 minutes.

Can we talk about how old Harper looks in these photos, 18 months going on 19?! We officially enter toddlerhood tomorrow and everyday I feel like she ages 5 years, it was as if one day I was looking forward to when she could tell me what she wanted to hoping it would all slow down. It’s amazing we live in a time where it’s so easy to document each stage, each look and each memory. 

This week was made by this adorable denim jacket, is there really anything cuter, and a sassy pin!

Grabbing your hand and saying “come on,” to then walk you through the house to sit in her favorite corner. Her nanny sent me a picture of her with her two children, Harper holding their hands and just smiling! It’s amazing to see her taking pride in her home and space.

Climbing up and sitting on the recycling bin, who knew there was such a view!
