Happy Birthday Eve, Harper!


The day is finally here, sweet little Harper Eve's birthday eve! :) A year ago today, we went to dinner to celebrate Valentine's Day and had no idea what was in store for us the next morning. And tonight, we will be celebrating our little hearts out! I love this little ball of fire more than I ever thought possible. We sit up at night watching her on the monitor as she sleeps, talking about how we want to go wake her up so we can play with her & let her sleep in our bed. Granted, we would never dare wake her, because in reality she would be Judo kicking me in the face instead of actually snuggling or going back to sleep. Sweet baby.

This little stroll down memory lane over the last twelve months makes me tear up. But, I also smile bigger than I ever have thinking of all the fun that is to come as we watch our little doll grow even more & our love for her grow exponentially right along with it.













Happy Birthday Eve, Miss Harper Eve!! :)
Oh, and we wish you all a VERY Happy Valentine's Day! XOXO

  5. I legit got goosebumps I can't believe she is a year old. Thank you for sharing this amazing part of your life. I was able to see your pregnancy and you helped me through mine. Fast-forward (through what feels like a few days at times) and now we are at Harper's first birthday and my son is almost 5 months old! Mind is currently blown.

    Happy Valentine's Day and Birthday Eve to little Ms. Harper Eve. And thank you for making motherhood that much more fun :)

  7. Love this! Congrats mommy on a beautiful little girl. She sure has grown up fast. I think the 4 month picture is my favorite with her little chucky legs. She is beautiful and I can't wait to see what is in store for her birthday. I'm sure it will be beautiful. So fun to watch her grown up. Happy Birthday Harper!

I have been reading your blog since last year when I found out I was pregnant last year and I have loved reading all about your experiences through pregnancy and your baby's first year!

  29. I have those same moccasins for my baby girl but they are HUGE! Did it take Harper 9 months before she fit into them? If so, that's a bummer, we have a ways to go then. Happy Birthday little Harper!

  35. I'm a midwifery student and I've been following your blog since before your baby. Today (2/15/13) I asked my patient what her new baby's name was going to be and another Harper was born! I thought I would share that coincidence with you. On your Harper's first birthday another sweet baby girl Harper was brought into the world :)

  48. She is beautiful! That first year really seems to go by SO fast! I did want to ask you if you had any problems with Harper getting cradle cap or losing her hair. My Harper is 3 months and was born with a head full and it is slowly falling out and it makes me very sad! My first was bald from the start so I haven't had any experience with a baby with hair!
