He is his father's son

So I've always made fun of how Dustin takes naps in his recliner.  He will take his blanket or Snuggie and cover the top or his head and his eyes, whether his body is covered or not.  I've asked and he doesn't really have reasoning (he does this even if it is night and no lights are on).  So needless to say I've just chalked it up to one of his weird little quirks. 

Last weekend we were staying at home and I left Harper in his pajamas to play in the morning.  I put him back in his crib for his morning nap and went in to check on him at one point.  This is what I found and couldn't believe it!!  Dustin can't deny this kid is his ever (besides looks, mannerisms are scarily similar...I'm thinking German temperament).
Funny thing is, Harper did the same thing the next day during a nap too!  He's such a funny kid!!

Happy Birthday Daddy!!

September 14th was Dustin's birthday.  We celebrated officially with dinner that evening with my parents and Dustin's parents.  We are hoping to do more this weekend for him.  Harper got Dustin an Iron Man superhero card and he loved it!  Isn't it amazing how your priorities change when you have kids?!?  So until next Tuesday we will continue to celebrate Dustin's birthday (he still believes he should get to say he is celebrating for an entire week and now has extended Harper's birthdays to an entire month)! They aren't spoiled or anything are they??

Happy 28th honey!  We love you!!

5 Months Old!

Yesterday Harper turned 5 months old.  We celebrated at Chili's with Nannie, Papa, Dackota, Mimi, and Pappy (his grandparents and cousin Kota).  Unfortunately Harper slept through the meal so I don't have any cute pictures.  But we did celebrate on his behalf! 

We went to the doctor just the day before dealing with stomach issues (yet again, or should I say still).  He now is 26 inches and 17 pounds 6.5 ounces.  Growing so fast!! He rolls around like a champion, sleeps in a crib/playpen every night, is really trying to get the crawling thing (he can scoot on his belly just about anywhere he wants), has just recently started recognizing strangers (i.e. not Mommy), eats fruits and veggies, and in my opinion is the sweetest thing ever!! 

Here are a few recent pictures.  Happy 5th month Harper!!!
