14 Months

Harper is now 14 months old and she is doing new things every day. Some things that are currently going on . . .
  • As Tom mentioned, Harper now loves to point. She likes to point at random things and say something that resembles, "what's that?" She likes to point when she wants something. And if you ask her where your nose or your eyes are, she will point to those too.
  • She has also recently discovered shaking her head. I have gotten in the habit of asking her questions like, "do you want to take a nap?" or "do you want to put your shoes on?" but I think I need to change that because now she shakes her head and gets upset.
  • She loves to give hugs. And to try to grab your glasses, beware.
  • She loves raisins. When we were in Utah and we went to lunch with our friends Jaime and Emma, Jaime gave Harper a raisin and I was SHOCKED that she ate it. She doesn't usually like things with much texture so I had never given her one. She is now obsessed with raisins and wants to eat them every time she is in her high chair. The really strange thing is that she also loves the box that the raisins come in. She crawls around with it all day and even wanted to take it with her to her nap the other day (don't worry, I didn't let her).

She just gets cuter all of the time! You don't have a baby anymore - she's a toddler now!

Oh my gosh - I am so glad she loves the raisins!! Hopefully this will open up a whole new world of food habits!

Ryan loved raisins at that age. He ate them all the time. Looks to me like Harper is pretty close to walking. Life as you knew it is about to change.
