i’m not kidding, these blog posts are going to get shorter and shorter if this weather stays (not that i don’t love summer, but our upstairs gets unbearable). it was 89 degrees today!

our little monster is 7 months old! i took her to dr. lavinder yesterday for her 6 month check up (yeah, a schedule mishap on the pedi’s offices part, but oh well). she was thrilled with harper in every way, and couldn’t get over what a good baby she was. here are her 7 month stats:

17 pounds 3 ounces (52nd %)
26 1/2 inches long (54th %)
17 inch noggin (90th %)

she did fabulous the whole time, downed the oral vaccine, but of course screamed bloody murder for her shots. poor little nugget even has a tiny bruise on one of her thighs. she slept most of the day away, cuddling with me and being clingy. last night she had a temp of 100.3, but with some baby tylenol and an early bed time, she is doing much better today. it’s great to know she is right on track and healthy as can be. she even got a book from dr. lavinder, a cool program they have that will bring a book to harper at each of her appointments from now on.

our condo is getting painted this week which means every being in our house is rudely awoken by strange men on ladders next to our windows each morning at 7:30. not cool. i think they should be on to the next building by thursday and i really hope i’m right. i’m not really down with getting the bejeebus scared out of me when i walk into my kitchen and some shirtless dude is in my backyard.

last night we gave harper peas for the first time. someone is not a fan. the faces she made were enough to make both scot and i almost die laughing. she’s also learning how to drink out a sippy cup these days, which she has masters completely, except for the tilting the cup part (you know, the part of the equation that makes the liquid actually reach the mouth). she seems pleased with water, so that is good. now if the weather would just even out to a nice 75 degrees, i’d be stoked. this room is stifling and i have to go now. sorry internets.

    Happy BD to you both! Harper's growing like a weed, and you're dropping all those pounds! And the heat will continue to sweat it off, too!
    Great pics of the little nugget!
    Love to you all. GG
