Two and a half

Harper is now 30 months old.  We have just been hanging out at home this week as Harper recovers from a cold.  Poor girl had to lounge around eating candy to celebrate.
But since she was doing better today, we spent some time at the park this afternoon.   Here are a few things about Harper.
  • She is a wild child, but she is also incredibly sweet.  She is very empathetic and likes to give lots of hug and likes to snuggle.  Sometimes if she wakes up in the middle of the night, she will yell from her room, "Mommy, Daddy, snuggle."  We have a hard time refusing that. (Also, notice my grey hair in the photo below!)
  • She knows all of her colors and a few letters.  She can also recite the alphabet and count to 15.
  • She is currently obsessed with Super Why, which is a show on PBS.
  • She enjoys going on our afternoon walk and always asks to make sure that Jonah is doing ok (he is behind her in the stroller and she can't see him).
  • She LOVES oranges.  Her dermatologist recommended that we avoid citrus fruits, but she likes them so much and she is so picky that we have a hard time turning her down.
  • She is very particular.  She likes to have things a particular way and does not like when her room gets messy.  In fact, she frequently complains that our room is too messy.  Oops.
  • She also likes to help clean up her room (yay!) and while she puts things away she will say, "I'm Mommy's helper."  
  • She is currently taking a little class at our local recreation center called Fun with Fitness.  There are several other kids around her age in the class and Harper is definitely the most enthusiastic.  She runs around like crazy and loves every minute.
  • During the week she will occasionally ask if we can go to Costco.  She is a child after my own heart.
  • She has recently become very opinionated about what she wears every day.  She usually wants to wear pink.

 She is just the best.  And so are these two guys.
