almost 3 months.

my little nugget! how can this be? last week we had to make the switch from newborn diapers to size 1, and i nearly cried. some of her onesies that she was swimming in at first are now near impossible to snap at the crotch. last night my mom was playing with her on her lap and Harper was pushing off with her feet into a standing position and squealing with delight at how fun it was. she actually recognizes Scot and I, which i seriously love.

my mom and i went to dinner last night and took the H monster. she literally sat in her carseat and smiled at me the whole time. i’d glance over in between bites and she would be just grinning at me. words cannot describe how mushy this made me inside! like a muffin basket full of kittens. i could have barfed a rainbow right then and there.

i get a little sad about her getting bigger and older, but it’s amazing to see her learn and grow. in the early days i’d go to change her diaper in the middle of the night and she would SCREAM bloody murder, her little chicken legs flailing, her face turning so red that no noise would even come out. she hated being cold and exposed – let’s face it, she wanted back in. but now, in the middle of the night when i change her diaper (through very blurry eyes), i can’t even get through it with out her giving a huge grin and patting my arm. i try to avert my eyes and get the job done so she wont get into play mode when it’s 2am – but sometimes i just crack up when i see her flirting with me out of the corner of my eye. this tiny human has changed me.

speaking of diapers, this mama is not at all looking forward to solid foods. my kiddos poo already could kill a horse (i actually gagged yesterday) and all i hear is how nasty it gets when solids are introduced. super. yesterday i was changing her poopy diaper and opened the wipe warmer to find it empty. crap. i turn to the closet to grab a new pack, totally disgusted that i had to put her bum down for a second, only to turn back around to a fountain of pee going to town. fantastic. outfit, changing pad cover and baby legs go in the washer and little miss H gets a full on wipe down. ah, motherhood. picture from right after the carnage.

    Ok, I am still in love with those leg warmers. Adult size, please. Nah, just kidding.

    Love that you just referred to Harper as H monster… lol! The cupcake onesie and leggings (?) are adorable. You should check out our onesies/tees too – when you have time, of course :)
