Spurs season is here!

Even though I don't work for them anymore, I still have to support my team (whether they win or lose).  Yesterday was opening day of the season so Harper had to be ready.  Here he is in his Spurs outfit.  Isn't he the greatest?!?!? (I'm just a little biased). Go Spurs Go!

It's the Great Pumpkin!

Last week we took Harper to the pumpkin patch at one of the churches here in town.  He was just getting over being sick which meant it wasn't an ideal time for pictures, but he was a trooper and made it through.  Here are a few of my favorites!

My favorite picture!!

A last ditch chance among the big pumpkins
And here are a couple of my favorites from recently.  Tivy Homecoming was about a month ago and I had to fix Harper up good (because I knew his Daddy would just love it!) and took him to the parade.  Here he is in his yellow shirt and Homecoming ribbons. Unfortunately he fell asleep before the parade started and missed the best part at the beginning but he did manage to catch the last 10 minutes.

Tivy Fight Never Dies!
And here is from this last week.  Harper got to play in his Daddy's new truck and loved it. Guess he is going to be a truck boy after all (not like he has a lot of choice coming from our families)!!
Look at me driving!! :)

Rubber Ducky, you're the one...

Harper has quickly outgrown his little bath tub.  He loves to sit up now and splash around so we had to find something different.  The big bath tub just seems so big and slippery, so I went and bought him a blow up ducky bath tub.  He loved it!!  Here are a few pictures from his first bath experience with the new tub.  Such a cutie!!

The Best Word in the English Language

Currently, the best word in the English language is "ahma"- or so I believe.

Last night Harper was finished eating his fruits and veggies, so I left him in his high chair and got up to throw away containers and put the spoons in the sink.  When I walked past him to get a wipe to clean up his face, he reached out for me and said "ahma, ahma, ahma".  Whether or not he truly meant Mama I will never know, but it was the best feeling in the entire world.  He did repeat the act later when he was ready to get out of his jumper.  So I like to think he was calling for me.

On another note, we went for Harper's six month check up on Wednesday.  He now weighs 18 pound, 9 ounces and is 26 3/4 inches.  A growing big boy!!  He did fabulous with his shots and is just thriving over all.

I do think I am spoiling him a bit as at his morning feeding, about 6 or 6:30 a.m., he has decided even though he wants to go back to sleep he doesn't want to be in his crib.  So he snuggles with me for about 5 minutes and then I sneak out and he gets to sleep all snuggled up in Mommy and Daddy's big bed.  He's just too cute to resist!!

6 months old!

On Friday the 1st, Harper turned six months old.  It is so hard to believe but he is growing and learning so fast.  We are having a blast with him and from the looks of it, the 6 month might have many milestones in it. 

His favorite thing to do right now is laugh, squeal, and "talk".  He will sit there forever and talk if you sit there and encourage it.  The funniest thing is when he tries to talk, he contorts his whole face and it sounds like he is talking in slow motion.  It is really hard not to laugh.

Yesterday, Harper got his first tooth in!  It just started coming through yesterday afternoon late and he had a rough night but he's a trooper.  Dustin and I were so excited (until he bit me for the first time- but we survived).  
Big Boy Car Seat!

Also, Harper got his new "big boy car seat"- a convertible car seat- this weekend.  He seems to really love it and having more room to move his arms and legs.  Plus he can see out the windows a little easier now.  Hopefully he won't miss his hanging toys too much. 

Now we just wait for him to start crawling and enjoy the stage he's at.  He is such a happy baby and it is so much fun to play with him!!
