A Year and A Half!

Sadly, this post is 12 days late!  But, this month Harper turned a year and a half!  We didn't celebrate or anything, but I thought it was important to showcase this busy little lamb!
She is just getting over being sick - much like everyone else at her daycare.  After being miserable for a few days (and specifically, nights) my mom took her to see Dr. Terry.  Diagnosis: double ear infection (treated with topical drops), sinus infection (treated with oral antibiotics), and a flare up of eczema due to the weather (treated with topical ointment).  Then a few days later when I took her for her "well-check" we also found some more fungus spots on her back and on her scalp.  Because of the scalp location, she is also on another oral medicine to hopefully clear that up!

She is still in the 50th percentile for height and 25th for weight, which is where she has pretty much been her whole life.  Her development looks great - she is very active and coordinated.  She understands a lot and is learning how to communicate.
She still loves dolls and blankies and taking care of people around her.  She also loves her binky, which she calls "GAW."  She is a snuggle-bunny and I love that, although it makes it impossible to do much around the house.  The only times she doesn't want to snuggle is when Shyla is including her in whatever she is doing.  She loves sitting in the stroller for walks and also holding Pancake's leash.  Her appetite declined a little bit with her illness but some of her favorites right now are sausage (still!), frozen blueberries, and strawberry or vanilla milk.
I cannot believe that in just 5 months we will be planning her 2nd birthday party!  This is a really fun stage and I am loving it!
