14 weeks

Harp has started showing an interest in hold her own bottle. What next? Dressing herself, probably.

I had my board meeting tonight for FOA and I brought her along. It could have been horrible, but she slept through the whole thing and woke when we adjourned, just in time to get love from the other members. She was great!

Now, Dan is appeasing her with her zebra while I take a minute to post these pictures. Such a change in so little time :)

13 weeks and visit with auntie!

 My child is 3 months old! 

We all had a WONDERFUL time with Auntie Ciara visiting from Turkey!  It was a bummer I had to start back at work while she was here, but having her here made coming home that much more exciting!  We (mostly C) made dinners,  and got to craft (mostly C again...she made two quilts while she was here!). 
 The first weekend, we had a great time at a dinner party one of Dan's friends threw.  And in a weird coincidence, there were two other people with Turkey connections!
 Ciara got Harper a great Valentine's outfit - which she is showing off here.  Heart Breaker!

 We had a great visit and we already miss Ciara!  There is nothing like having family around.  And really, to get 11 whole days of her time makes me and Harp feel pretty special! 
We'll get to see Ciara again, hopefully this July/August when she's on her summer break.  Only a few months!

Auntie Ciara!

 I mentioned my sister is here in my last post but it's really more like My sister is HERE!  YAY! 

We just got back from a weekend in Chicago.  It's always nice to go up, and especially so this time, as one of Dan's friends had a dinner party welcoming a friend from San Diego to Chicago.  I think it's easier to move when you know there are nice people there to welcome you.

The meal was great and the company was wonderful.  It was nice to introduce Ciara to some of the people I spend time with, as she won't have a chance to meet them at the wedding in May.

 These pictures, however, have nothing to do with dinner parties and everything to do with Harper's uncle Adam.  Adam wasn't able to make the trek from Turkey this time with Ciara, but he put in a special request for some photos where H isn't lying flat on the floor.  Harper can be seen in all of her happy, chubby baby glory!

We miss you uncle Adam!

12 Weeks!

Harper is 12 weeks! 

This has been a busy week.  I started back at work on Wednesday, AND Ciara is here visiting from Turkey.  It feels so great to have so many adults to talk to, but I have to be honest...I would give up all of the adults at work to hang home with Harper all day :)  She is just so freakin' cute and fun!

But, that's not the case. 

Before Harper was born, I was happy to be off of work and come home, but now.  Well.  Now I can't wait to get home and pick up my girl and squeeze her!  And I've really only not seen her for about 4 hours, as I come home for lunch! 

So here she is at 12 weeks (really 12 weeks and a day because the photos just didn't happen yesterday.)  She is getting ready for a bath, hence the shots in her skivvies.
