Because today the sun peaked out from behind a dark cloud and we took 1000 trips down the slide. I am a third of the way through our weekly portrait series and seeing the growth and development in Harper has left me a little misty. 

Lately our days off have been filled with errands, tantrums, chores and appointments, so today we walked to the park so we could smell the flowers, ride the slide and swing till our face hurt from smiling. Today was a beautiful break from the stress of the last few weeks!

Watering plant might this girl’s favorite was to spend a day. We have already needed to reply one plant and hide the watering can to give some of our little green babies a break from an excited toddler.

We officially have a toddler who is ready for a toddler bed! The last week we have had two nights of screaming because someone got stuck mid-climb out of her crib. Her father and I are pretty sure this means she will never sleep again…

Because today was warm, the park was beautiful, and we got to spend the afternoon with some beautiful ladies taking magical photos. Harper, who usually suffers from some stranger-danger, immediately opened up to this group of women…up until mom was pulled away which did not sit well. It’s so apparent how much this little girl loves being outside which makes me so happy!

“More…” fill in the item there. Right now this has more to do with food. Sadly it comes after the pasta I made is cooked and ready to eat, like “more crackers!” But I must say it’s incredibly cool that she is voicing her opinion and I can ask her what she wants and actually make her happy. By the way, I know my happiness may change very quickly.

Coloring is this girls #1 activity, right next to reading sporadic pages from Peter Rabbit. She is really into drawing circles and in identifying the letters your write on the page. I just wish she wouldn’t eat the crayons.

// biggest accomplishment //

After a few weeks of jelly beans and singing on the potty, we have officially peed and pooped on the potty! Granted beans are the main motivation, but we will take it!
