Sweet Girl

I can't believe she's almost 16 months already.

Remember us?

Yes, we're still alive.

Harper and I went to Pennsylvania to visit my sister and her family over the weekend with my Mom and Dad. Harper was a pretty good little traveler.

Mom and Dad are here visiting until the end of the week.

While we were in PA, I let someone cut off Harper's hair. I am so sorry, dear baby. I did not know that woman was going to chop off your hair and make all of us cry. It will grow, sweet girl. I promise.

Before the PA trip, I went to the emergency room. That little trip was kind of the beginning of my blogging lapse. I was having some abdominal pain for a couple of days and finally went to a doctor. That doctor sent us to the emergency room convinced that I needed to have my appendix out. The ER doctor thought there was a good probability that needed to happen too and ordered a CT scan. Thank goodness for modern technology because it turned out to be only a burst cyst on my ovary. After a couple more days of pain and fatigue, I was pretty much back to normal. Here is a really bad photo of me with bad hair and no makeup in the ER. Looks like I let the same woman who cut Harper's hair cut my hair.

And now I am feeling a little bit under the weather with the sniffles. I'm hoping that whatever it is, it is short lived. I'd like to get back to things being a wee bit more normal around here.

Funny Harper Picture

I asked to see her teeth, and this is what I got.

Why my kid is on a break from TV

We're on day 3 of no TV for little Jack's Big Music Show girl. This was Monday.

And just like that...

You were right, Mom. We just had a big ole thunderstorm, and now it's a lovely 73 degrees outside. Amazing!

And when I went outside to get the mail (post thunderstorm), this little red leaf was in the driveway. I had to look around for a while to figure out where it came from. A few of the leaves on the neighbor's tree are already turning red. Can it be the beginning of fall already?!?


Who ordered up this weather? It's not so much the 90 degrees part... it's the feels like 98 degrees that is not so cute. It feels like a rainforest outside minus the fun monkeys (they're all inside). And 59% humidity? Hah! Try 200% or so.

Here's how to get Harper to hold still...

Just turn on her show on the TV. Sad, but true.

And in case you wanted to see what my silly sweet potato looks like half cross-eyed, here you go.
Silly girl.

A Little Journey

I decided to start a blog for my artwork. I've actively been working on several projects that I'd like to share, and I thought it would be nice to have a seperate place to put them. You can click HERE to visit the art blog where I'm just getting warmed up, or you can click on the Visit My Art Blog image in the side bar. Hope you'll take a look over there now and then!

And now, Miss Harper would like to take her rightful place as star of this blog. Here's a photo of our little celebrity from yesterday afternoon. She says, "HIYA!".

She's been doing all kinds of new tricks for us lately including even more new teeth (the molars on the right side are breaking now), climbing stairs, and saying new words like "apple".
