Harper's 4 Month Birthday!

Mommy and Harper
Harper is ready for her celebration in her cupcake dress!
Harper is 4 months today!  She's getting so big and weighs 12 pounds now.  She has recently started cooing which is so much fun to watch as a parent.  She spent the day trying so hard to talk to mommy, playing on her mat with her great grandma, Mimi, and napping in "Glamma's" arms.  Below is a short video of Harper chatting with mommy and enjoying her morning time in her massage chair.

Papa turns 80!

This past weekend we had a big family reunion to celebrate Papa's 80th birthday.  Mimi outdid herself with a gorgeous spread of delicious home-cooked food, the perfect party decorations and a huge chocolate cake for the amazing event. It was a lot of fun reconnecting with family and sharing Harper with everyone.
Once again, Harper was the star of the event (sorry Papa) and loved every minute of every hug as we played "musical baby" with all the guests.  Harper was very excited she got to stay up late to wish her great grandpa a Happy Birthday!

God Bless America!

Harper celebrated her first 4th of July in Chico this year.  She was such a trooper on the long drive, sleeping the entire way up and back!  Saturday morning we took a trip downtown to the farmer's market where we picked up fresh fruits and veggies for our 4th of July BBQ.  Bella (our friend's 5 lb Chuwawa) enjoyed the free stroller ride with Harper.

 We spent most of Saturday poolside.  While Harper didn't care much for the cool water, she loved lounging by the pool in style.

On the morning of the 4th we rocked the morning away on the outdoor swing with Harper's best friend, Sienna, and Auntie Cailin. Later we took a walk through Bidwell park and ended the evening in American fashion with a backyard BBQ.
