Eating Habits: She still nurses a LOT. Probably 5-7 times during the day, and 2-6ish times at night. She has finally been eating more food though, which is exciting! Current favorite include: greek yogurt, steak, mashed potatoes, apples, bananas, steel cut oats, and ice cream.
Communication: More talking happening lately. She still doesn’t really put two words together, and definitely no sentences, but she frequently says quite a few words. She always shouts “Daddy!” when Daddy gets home, asks for Mimi (to nurse) as well as still signs milk, signs all done and says “duh”, says all family members names in her own funny way, etc. She loves to shout “shoes!” whenever she spots someone with shoes on.
Movement: Still a lot of dancing. It has evolved to include a variation of tap dancing/irish jig movements and wave-like hand motions. It’s quite hilarious.

Name: Risa
Baby Name: Harper
Age: 10 months
Height: 27.5 inches
Weight: 15.8 lbs.
Hair: Strawberry Blondish and wild
Eyes: Right eye is blue, her left eye is green
Clothing Size: 6-9 month
Shoe Size: N/A
Teeth: 6 plus more on their way
Eating habits: She eats and eats and eats. She usually eats a whole thing of yogurt every morning along with some cheerios. For lunch and dinner she has what we have and she eats right along with us. She typically will have a fruit and maybe some cheese for a snack throughout the day. She is still nursing and I think she is still doing it quite a bit. She nurses at least 5 times a day. She has learned to use her sippy cup just this past week so she has been drinking water as well.
Communication: She says ”Mama” and “Daddy” and sometimes she says “byebye”. The new thing she does that is absolutely ADORABLE is when I play peek-a-boo with her, I ask her “where’s Harper” and she answers “There she is”. It isn’t clear but you can tell that is what she is saying because she changes the inflection of her voice just like I do. She holds things up to her ear and says “Hello”. She has answered me “uh-uh” when asked if she is done nursing and her has been trying to say “stinky”. She has been waving every once and a while but mostly to herself.
Movement: She still does the one-legged army crawl. She is cruising right along using the furniture to walk. Lily took her first steps on her first Halloween so I kind of hoping Harper will too. She could walk if she really wanted to. She has been trying to climb lately and seems way too interested in the stairs.
