Harper is 2 Months Old

October 22nd, 2014 Melanie Posted in Harper, Monthly Updates No Comments »


Harper is 2 months old!


The little hand on her head belongs to Hunter. As I took the picture, he reached out, touched her head, and said, “I just have to feel how soft her hair is.”



Here are some of the things Harper does at 2 months old:

She is a super happy and smiley baby!  Sometimes I think she is even doing a little laugh.

Harper loves to talk to us and coo.  Her little voice is just the sweetest.

She can roll from front to back.

Harper is still a great sleeper.  She doesn’t sleep great during the day, although occasionally she takes some great naps.  But, she is wonderful sleeper at night.  She’s usually ready for bed around 7:30 and  I wrap her up in her swaddle blanket and lay her down in her crib.  She makes a few noises and then goes to sleep.  Then she sleeps anywhere from 6-10 hours before waking up to eat.

Harper is still breastfeeding and eats anywhere between 2-3 hours during the day.  I have had to cut dairy, wheat, and soy out of my diet as we try to figure out a possible allergy she might have.  It has been a very hard adjustment, but she’s worth it.

Harper weighs 12 lbs, 4 oz and is 23 inches long.  Some of her 0-3 month clothes are starting to get a little tight, but I am not ready to put them away yet.  She is still wearing size 2 diapers.

Harper is 1 Month Old

Is it really time for my first monthly post about Harper? I can’t believe how fast the last month went! But, here we are at 1 month old already.

Such a little sweetie :-)

Here are a few things that Harper does at 1 month old:

She definitely smiles at us.  When we ask her to smile she will do it.  I haven’t been able to get a picture yet of her doing it, but I will post one when I can get her to do it for the camera.

Harper is just starting to coo and talk to us and tell us little stories.

Harper loves to watch Hailey and Hunter play.  Hunter really loves to entertain her and share his toys with her- and Harper will just sit and watch his busy little body!  Hailey loves to hold Harper and snuggle her and Harper loves to smile at Hailey.  Harper also loves to look at ceiling fans and she also likes to stare at the curtains in our living room- those were some of Hunter’s favorite things to look at too.  Harper is not a fan of tummy time (do babies ever like tummy time?).  She would rather just put her head down and go to sleep or cry until I pick her up.  Harper loves to be held and does not like it so much when she is put down.

Harper is an excellent sleeper.  I am so thankful she sleeps so well!  She takes naps through out the day and I haven’t really found a pattern yet.  Some days she barely sleeps all day and others she sleeps very soundly for a couple of long naps.  At night she always sleeps great.  She has been doing one stretch of sleep between 5-7 hours.  She wakes up to eat and goes right back to sleep.  After her long stretch of sleep she is usually up every 2 or 3 hours to nurse, but she always goes right back to sleep.

Harper is breastfeeding and usually goes between 1-3 hours between feedings during the day.

Harper weighs 11 pounds (77th percentile) and is 22 1/4 inches long (69th percentile).  She wears 0-3 clothes and size 2 diapers.
