Yesterday, Harper turned 16 months old. As she gets older, it’s nearly impossible to get photos of her (especially if you ask, she will laugh and run away) so I’m sharing photos from our trip to the Houston Zoo today as part of her 16-month update.
This month Harper’s language really exploded. I remember being a little worried at her 15-month checkup that she wasn’t saying many words (to which my pediatrician replied “don’t worry, my son didn’t talk until he was 3, and now he works at Google). Thanks for the reassurance, doctor.
About a week or two after that check-up, it was like someone flipped a switch and this girl started to say new words practically daily. It’s awesome. She even talks to herself in her crib in the morning. If she wakes up earlier than usual we just let her hang out for a bit chatting and flipping through books.
Favorite Moments, Memories & Milestones:
“nay nay” for horse
She also started to say “I don’t know” (but it sounds like one word)— she shrugs her shoulders and puts her hands up by her sides. It slays me, it’s so cute.
Has been a total daddy’s girl for the last few weeks. It’s always “dada dada dada.”
She answers questions with yes or no all the time now.
She still loves to dance. We regularly “get down” to some tunes. She’s got moves, y’all.
She often brings Lulu his octopus toy and laughs when she throws it to him. She loves watching him run around the house.
