Happy 11 Months

Harper is 11 months old! She turned 11 months on the 21st. I'm a little late because we have all had the plague and are still suffering.

My sweet girl,

You are almost a year old. It's hard to believe how fast time goes by. I feel like you were just born. This past year has been challenging but very rewarding. You are now taking three to four steps at a time before you fall over. It will not be long until you are fully walking. Gone are the days of baby hood and into toddler hood we go. It is bittersweet for me since you are my last baby.

You are always all smiles. You have the biggest, greatest smile ever. You are a happy baby for the most part, but you still hate riding in the car. I hope you grow out of that. Your daddy & I love to always be on the go and that's been difficult with you hating the car so much. You adore your brother and follow him around as much as you can. I know that one day you both will be the best of friends. You are also daddy's girl. You brighten up when he walks through the door, and he adores you.

You are the puzzle piece that completes our little family. I look forward to the years to come. I can't wait to watch you grow and learn. You are my sunshine.

Lots of love, hugs and kisses,

Pumpkin Patch

We pumpkin patched it up this past weekend. It was crisp and windy on Saturday and we got together with our friends and off to the pumpkin patch we went.

Landon had a blast (Harper could care less ha). We got him some cotton candy and went through the corn mazes. Fall is the best season EVER. I know everyone says that, but it's freaking true. Who doesn't love Halloween, pumpkins, hayrides, cider and the cooler weather?! If you don't there is something wrong with you.

Here are some obligatory photos from our weekend. Other then the pumpkin patch it was pretty uneventful. Landon now has a cold and I'm hoping we all don't get it!

Hi! Long time, no blog. I had to switch back to blogger because will NOT let me into my account. That is a LONG story. So I guess so long for now (even though I'm still getting charged for it). To say I'm frustrated is an understatement, but I'm back to blogging again because I really missed it!

Landon is now in first grade and doing so well. He is thriving and loving his teacher. My husband has decided to get out of the Army so we are in the process of going through all of that. It's been pretty stressful around here. All we've ever known is the Army so this is a huge change for us. Harper will be 11 months old this month. I can't believe it! I'm starting to plan for her first birthday party.

I'm still trying to get everything set up and give this blog a makeover. So until it's all ready here are some pics from the last few months.
