This is a plethora of just random things about my girls. Really more for my memories and for the grandparents than anyone but you can peek in:
Harper is starting to play with Hollis more and more. She asks for "sister" first thing every morning and after naps. She adores her and it's so fun watching them interact. Hollis thinks Harper is SO funny. They were playing with Hollis' new jumperoo yesterday and I loved how hard Hollis would laugh looking at Harper.
I adore my children but I'm not one of these mothers who thinks their children are geniuses. I know all children have different things they excel at early. Harper is SO into drawing faces right now and honestly - it does kind of blow me away. She drew this of her Papa. Scott and I just can't believe how she draws eyes, a nose, mouth, ears and hair at 2.5. She did not get her artistic ability from us. She may not dance or be athletic or be the smartest kid in her class (or maybe she will) - but she is so musical and artistic and I love that about her. (Because I am so NOT those things).
Harper is now obsessed with "Bambi". It was "Beauty and the Beast" and "Tangled" and now she can't get enough of that little deer. And it is the saddest movie in the world. I can't figure out why Disney made such a sad movie for children. And if you think about it - in almost all the disney movies - the mom either gets killed or is already dead. What is the deal with that? Not my favorite message. ha!
And speaking of movies - I had so many of you asking about what music videos Harper loved to watch (the answer was Praise Baby and Cedarmont Kids). She LOVES watching videos of kids singing praise music and there is nothing sweeter to me than her singing along. There is a new series called Baby Worship. It's more up to date worship songs and I let Harper watch it in the car the other day and I seriously had tears in my eyes because she was singing so sweetly to "Mighty to Save" and it has scripture they say out loud. If you want to expose your children to something precious - I would highly recommend these! If you use this link to buy the DVD - you can save 15%! (DVD is normally $12.99) http://kellyskornerblog.
(I also want to add that for every DVD/CD sold - they donate a portion to charities like World Vision - who help with hunger or water or medical supplies for third world countries.) (LOVE THAT!)
