Mom, my hat is too small.

Since my computer is on the fritz, loading photos is more difficult.  Dan's computer, however, still allows me to load some video.  So for your enjoyment, here is Harper talking..about something.  Be sure to wait until the end to see a killer smile. 

And Ciara, she has worn her hat before this, but there were no pictures.  It is now too small.  Her dome has exploded!

4 month stats

Harper had her 4 month appointment and shots today. She is such a trooper! She was all smiles and dimples up until they stuck those SUPER long needles into her chubby little thighs and then she wailed for about 15 seconds. Her face got so red and the wail itself was one long, drawn out, huge breath of sound. Then I scooped her up and gave her a hug. She stopped the sound, but big tears rolled down her cheeks for a bit longer. Dad gave her a bottle with a dose of tylenol in it, and she went to sleep in the car on the way home.

Her stats:

Weight: 17 lbs. 10.5 ounces (95th percentile)
Height: 27 inches (99th percentile)
Head: 16.75 inches (87th percentile)

Proportional and developing fine. And she's got snazzy Sesame Street band-aids to boot!

17 Weeks!

Four months on Saturday. It's so awesome, this whole mom/dad/kid/family thing we've got going on.
I love walking in the door after work and seeing my girl all snuggly with her dad, or waking up from nap, or ready to eat.

She is a keeper!

15 weeks and 16 weeks

15 Weeks.  She wasn't in the mood to be put down for a photo, so, here we are in the bathroom.  Snuggly baby = Happy momma
Kodak wanted to get in on the fun.  Harper hasn't figured out what a kitty is...yet.

16 weeks!  I'll probably forget to take her picture when I get home from work, so this week you get some sleeping shots. 
Happy, toasty baby.  She loves her Very Hungry Caterpillar blanket!  Her 4 month appointment will be right around the bend.  I think she's still in the high 90-percentiles, just based on how she looks and feels compared to Oscar and the babies in my mom group.  We'll see!
