Looking back at Christmas 2005...

It's hard to believe that Harper will be 5 in January. Where did the time go? I was going through old pictures of when Harper was a baby and thought I would share a few pictures from Thanksgiving and Christmas 2005.

Looking back.....

Harper's Humor Chapter 12 page 1

I haven't done a very good job of posting Harper's Humor lately. But I have a few that I need to be shared.

To start this story off I need to give you a little background. Deb & Grandpa have recently given Harper a bunch of videos. We have watched Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and a bunch of other movies. I have shown Harper how to run the clicker (stop,rewind,fast forward). So, the other day Harper and I were on our way to DD's in the morning. I had KFOR on the radio and Harper thought she heard they say Harper. She says "Mommy, rewind the radio I think they say Harper." I tried to explain to her that you cannot rewind the radio. She points at the radio and says "yes you can Mommy, there is a rewind button.". She was pointing at the seek button the radio...

Matt took Harper to speech yesterday and when I got home from work they were in the garage waiting so me so we could head to Weight Watchers. Matt looked a little stressed. I asked him out speech went and he said it went OK, but she was a little wound up. Recently Karen and Harper has been working on sentences and telling stories. Karen had asked Harper what she would do if she smelled smoke and she was in the house. Harper said " I would run into the kitchen and see what was cooking." (I'm not sure were that came from as I do not often burn things in the kitchen) LOL

I believe they were doing the same thing, but Harper had started a sentence with Harper instead of I. Karen put up her finger and said to Harper "I". Matt said Harper didn't miss a beat and said "spy with my little eye".

She is doing great with the speech therapy and you can understand her so much better. It is a lot to fun and she has learned a lot. Karen and Laura are so nice and Harper really enjoys going.

Hair cut - Finally!!!

We finally went and got Harper's hair cut today. It's probably been almost 7 months since had gotten it cut. It was getting tough to comb it after bath and as some on you know.. she seems to have a very tender head.. or at least that is what she thinks. LOL Matt really likes the new shorter look, but says she looks so much older, which what we really don't need.

Heading to church last Sunday

The Preschool was asked to come to church and sing last Sunday. Harper and I went and after they kid sung, she headed to Sunday School and loved it. We are going to start going every week.

Our little Tooth Fairy!

We had a good Halloween this year. Matt had to work until about 5 and after he got home we headed out. We went to a few houses in our neighborhood and then heading to Grandpa's to Trick-or-Treat his street and off to Mitch and Brandy's new house to do a little more. Harper had a good time and really enjoyed seeing other kids in the costumes. She asked about everyone we passed.. "Who are You?" She got a TON of candy, which we are still eating. I throw away a couple of pieces a day so we can get rid of it sooner...
