I hope ya'll had a good weekend. We sure have. It started off Saturday morning with "Pancake Saturday" which just may become a standing tradition at our house when we can. Then we hung out in our pj's most of the morning. Why is Harper smiling in this picture???
Because on Saturday morning - Harper SAT by herself!!! Finally!!! She is still a little wobbly and won't sit on her own for long but we are getting there! I was so happy. I know one of the worse things us moms can possibly do is to compare our babies to others but it's so hard not too. I got stressed reading so many blogs and seeing all the babies Harper's age and younger were sitting and I was getting so worried. But they all do things on their own time. I figure she is smart enough to know that if she's sitting ......then we aren't holding her. And she would rather be held. And you know what? This momma wants to hold her as long as I can! :-)
Harper and Daddy had a lot of daddy/daughter time this weekend. Scott kept Harper most of the afternoon so I could get my hair done. (Hallelujah!) and then last night - Scott kept Harper so I could go down the street to a 30th birthday party for my friend/neighbor Melissa!
I had to take a picture of this cake - isn't it amazing???? and the best part - it was chocolate and red velvet (my favorite!) Jennifer Francis - I thought of you when I took this picture! :-)
We quickly learned what we already knew. Harper is the most high maintenance child in the nursery. We were amazed at how the other kids mostly sat so quietly and were so good and which child do you think cried most of the time (even with us in there?) Bless the nursery worker's hearts when they see us coming each week. Maybe our next baby will be an easy going baby that everyone else seems to have. ha! Harper really is so much happier these days......she just seems to hate church. ha!
Scott did a great job working in the nursery. I think a year ago he would have been stressed out but he's a natural with kids. I just love watching all the kids in our church grow and it's so fun to see Harper start to interact with the other kids and realize those will be her friends.
