Harper, happy two-month birthday! I didn’t know that it would be possible, but somehow this month you have gotten even cuter and sweeter than you already were. You started to smile this month, and I can’t even begin to tell you how much joy it brings to me, Daddy, your sister, or really anyone to see your sweet, lopsided, gummy grin. It’s so fun being able to play with you now, with me looking like a goofy idiot, making funny noises and doing whatever it takes to see your face light up with a smile. Avalon loves laying next to you, saying, “Smile, Harper! Smile for me!” And of course there’s almost nothing better than watching my two girls interact with one another. I know that down the road that will change for a couple of years, and that you’ll want nothing to do with each other, except to maybe sneak in each other’s closets to steal that killer pair of jeans, so for now I will soak up the sisterly sweetness while I can.
I hope that as you get older you will stay as sweet and lovable as you are now. You melt my heart on a minute-by-minute basis and are still so mellow and easy going and also MY GOSH at your cuteness. On the occasions that you’re not very happy, the easiest fix to calm you down is to simply snuggle you up close to my face and just cuddle. You’re going to need a very large garage, because whenever you do this with your daddy he promises to buy you a new car. Wrapped around his finger? I think so.
You’re a superstar at your job; eating and sleeping like a professional baby. I am following the Moms On Call method this time around, and with you on their suggested schedule you are sleeping from 8pm-5 or even 6am, then you eat and go back to sleep until 8am when I wake you up to start our day. You nap beautifully during the day as well, which is a huge blessing so that I can still spend time with Avalon while you are getting your beauty rest. So thanks for that, and keep it up, would ya?
