What we've been up to...

I feel like life has been so busy, and just when things start to relax, Christmas is right around the corner! I can't believe how fast time flies when you have a kid! I hate it:(
Well, like usual, Harlow has us wrapped around her cute little fingers. She is such a doll, we can't get enough of her! She is the sweetest little girl with such a darling personality, she has such a good sense of humor...which is a must in our little family:) At the end of the day, when I put her to bed, I am so tired and ready to relax, but after about 5 minutes I'm tempted to get her out of her crib! Ok, maybe I wouldn't go that far, but I seriously miss her when she sleeps!
I feel like she is such a smart little girl, she understands everything that we say and she is very good at communicating with us. She talks sooo much, I love it! She is still obsessed with hats, which is great because she is always taking her bows off and her hair is at the awkward "mullet" stage, so hats are ok by me. She is such a great sleeper and goes right to bed at nighttime and for her naps. She LOVES her little white doggie, her blankie and having 2 pacis in her crib with her. I only let her have them when she sleeps, but I dread the day when we will take the pacifier away, I feel like it makes her sleep so much better, and she is able to put herself back to sleep if she wakes up in the middle of the night because of them.
She LOVES to eat! I feel like she should be so much bigger because of all the food she consumes! She loves to be outside and loves animals. She is obsessed with music and dances any time she hears anything similar to a beat or rhythm. She is still a big cuddle bug, which I hope she never grows out of! I just love when she lays on my shoulder and starts humming, it melts my heart every single time. She had her first big accident yesterday. She was walking on the driveway with her sippy cup and fell. I could tell she hurt herself by the way she was crying and right when I picked her up, all I could see was blood covering her mouth. I couldn't tell where it was coming from! My stomach dropped, but it's funny how motherly instincts suddenly take over, you calm down...a little...and go into mom-mode. Her sippy cup cut her top gums and her lower lip, it was so sad. She took it like a champ though, she calmed down fairly fast and just wanted to cuddle for a good 15 minutes. I know only 1 accident for a 14 month old is a real good record, but I am NOT looking forward to anymore!
Well, that just about sums up our life lately...our little baby is not so little anymore! It's so sad that she's growing so fast, but at the same time, I just love her age right now, she is so fun and entertaining. We love you Harlow babe!!! You mean the world to us!!!
