Harper is 6 months! (tomorrow, anyway - but tomorrow's a busy day so we won't be able to do proper pictures!) I was just looking through the pictures from when she was just born and it's amazing how much she's changed in only 6 months. Then I think... 6 months has gone so, so quick! I can't believe where the time's gone, we're already halfway through her first year and that's weird to think about!
At 6 months (near enough) Harper can sit unaided for about 30 seconds, she babbles and chats, she likes to death grip everything, she is trying to pincer grip certain things now (like labels), and she goes 'mmmmmm' when you put a spoon in her mouth! She loves bolognese and she enjoys salmon too, she loves it when people talk to her and smiles at anyone who remotely pays her attention. She likes car journeys and her favourite toy at the moment is Simba, that we got from a local charity shop for £1! She sleeps well, despite her teething (we can see one of her bottom teeth trying to pop through) and she's generally a happy little thing until I try to eat anything, then whatever she is doing she'll stop and start crying instead! Harper is now on 3 meals a day, with bottles in between, some days she will have 4 7oz bottles and others she will have 3. She won't drink water, she will only drink fruit juice (heavily diluted as it may be) and she has a real little personality, she's a cheeky little moo and we love it! She's really growing into an amazing little person who does new things every day - I am constantly amazed by her!
We also have a new family member! An 8 week old Boston Terrier called Rigby - he's gorgeous, a bit crap at the whole not peeing and pooping on the floor thing, but gorgeous nonetheless! He loves Harper and she loves him (she shows us by smiling at him and then trying to grab his face, poor dog!) Wherever Harper is, he is, he will sit under her high chair at dinner times and follow me or Elliott if we have her. He's a lovely little addition to our family, and I can't wait til we can take him out with Harper for walks, it'll get us out and about and Harper will get fresh air! Win win - until it starts raining!
