Today Harper had her one year appointment and we were both so happy until the shots came! ha! Our doctor thought everything looked and sounded great. Harper is a BIG girl! She weighed right at 24 lbs (which is 75-90%) and is 30 inches long (75% in height). So she is a tall girl! He told me that tall babies often walk a little later because their center of gravity is so much higher.
We were in the waiting room with another couple and their brand new baby and when the nurse called us - we found out their baby was a Harper too. (I'm not excited that her name seems to becoming popular. I really picked it because it WASN'T. I'm really going to have to work on Baby #2 - when there is one - having an uncommon (but not weird) name! ) :-)
This was what we had - a Svan Anka chair. A lot of you have asked me if I liked it. And I did for a while but it reached a point where I absolutely HATED it. For one thing -all the paint completely chipped off and it looked awful. It was also hard to keep clean. But the worse part is it wouldn't keep her strapped in and she had started standing up in the chair constantly and it was SO dangerous. She could have fallen on her head easily so I went out and bought a good old Graco that had a 5 point harness and we are much happier. ha!
