Happy Birthday Harper!

I can’t believe it is already this time. The birthday party isn’t going to be too over the top this year, mostly because I think I was in complete denial that this day was already coming so fast! I can’t believe my baby girl is already 1! Here is a look back at her first year. 
January- She joined the family on January 4th by surprise! I had been on bed rest when suddenly my water broke. She came 4 weeks early and got to spend 11 days in the NICU. Those were some of the hardest days of my life, but I am so so grateful for those nurses who worked to get her healthy enough to come home with us. She weighed just 5 lbs 3 oz when she was born and was 4 lbs 11 oz when we took her home. I knew she was small, but looking back, I can’t believe just how small she was!
February- Celebrated her first Valentine’s Day! Still so tiny, but I felt like she was so big!
March- Holding up her head!
April- First Easter. Starting to fill out a little bit.
May- Blessing day. What a special day that was with our friends and family. Hair loss. Our bald little baby!
June- First airplane ride to Las Vegas. The cheeks are beginning to arrive!
July- First parade and 4th of July celebrations.
August- Wearing her Nike Dunks. Welcoming all of the mooshy gooshiness that we love to squeeze and kiss daily.
September- The hair starts to make its return. The rolls just keep adding on. Started some physical therapy to help her build strength so she can catch up a little.
October- First Halloween! 
November- We dropped Uncle Carson off at the MTC to serve an LDS Mission in Bogota Colombia. 
December- First Christmas! So much hair, so much chub, and finally crawling!
Happy Birthday, sweet little girl! You make my days so much brighter. I love you!

ok seriously, I just had the longest/cutest post and for some reason blogger didn't let me publish it to you! boo!

anyways, ok so I am seriously weird-ed out that Harper is ONE!!! what, where did that year go???? I mean, remember when T was born and you and Harper came to see us...she was only 3 months then!!!!! INSANE!!! that really freaks me out to think that in 3 months I too will have a ONE YEAR OLD!!! aha, craziness! But she is so adorably cute! and I adore her rolls and her squishy cheeks!!! I hope she keeps them, at least for a little while!
