Happy 2nd Birthday, Harper Rose!

Harper Rose, you are 2 years old today.  I can't believe 2 years have gone by so quickly and you've changed so much.  Our time is precious, and I never forget it.  You are the light of our lives-really and truly-and I thank God every single day for you.

Harper, at 2 years old you...

  • are long and lean still-we'll get the measurements next week, but you're around 23 pounds and you're tall!
  • speak in sentences and are very polite with "please" and "thank you."
  • are getting your 2 year molars.
  • LOVE to read, play outside, paint, play with your best friend Sunny, cuddle with mommy at bedtime, take bubble baths, go to gymboree, and watch those coveted cartoons.
  • love your dog Georgia.  You kiss and hug her when we leave the house.
  • have a Toy Story obsession (at least it isn't Barney).
  • are a momma's girl for sure.
  • eat great!
  • have a ton of energy; you run and run and run.  You are FAST and we think you'll be athletic.
  • love to dance.  It is one of your favorite things in the world and you make us come dance with you.
  • will sit and read to yourself for 30 minutes to an hour.  You've always loved books.
  • have learned the word "mine," which I do not like.  I want you to be generous, and you usually are.
  • have the best laugh and use it often.
  • are a great helper and a cleaner-you like to put things in the right place and at art class you're always the one running around cleaning up.
  • are so beautiful and smart-to us, at least.  We just sit in awe of you sometimes.  We can't believe you're ours.  We love you!

Happy Birthday, sweet girl!


  1. I can't believe it's been 2 years now!!! Harper is an extension of her Mother and Father! She has the best personality! (Maybe a little bit silly like her MiMi) Kisses to both of my beautiful girls!!! Mom & MiMi

  2. What a wonderful and sweet little girl! We see so much of both Brian and Kristy in her and her zest for life. As I read Harper's favorites, it reminds me of Kristy growing up as she loved the same things. It has been a fast two years, and with so many memories through short visits and pictures sent it is difficult to point a most favorite moment/picture. Thank you both for the joy we get from sharing those moments with us. They are fondly cherished. We love you all.
