She finally loves to lay on her play mat. FINALLY! She is so into staring at the monkey hanging from the top, and the mirror. She can lay on it for about 30 minutes just kicking away and making the cutest noises. She gets bored after 30 minutes though. But I'm able to get a lot done while she plays.
I started placing it by the window with the window open so she can feel the breeze. She almost took a 45 minute nap like that yesterday.
But she's not use to sleeping without her swaddle like she does at night. So when she sleeps on her back during the day to nap, she wakes herself up ALL the time! We are going to have to get this figured out soon or she'll be sleeping in a swaddle at night until shes 18!
But she naps for HOURS in the swing, no problem!
By the way, its been 75 and sunny the last 3 days. I almost can't
She loves the shopping malls, just look at her face. She must have seen the Nordstroms too!
Lately she has been reaching out and touching my face and arms when I lay next to her. And she puts her hands in my hair and wiggles her fingers around in it. She loves playing with my hair.
And just yesterday she discovered her own hair. I've caught her petting her head like 4 times! This may be a hazard though... she also pulls her own hair now too.
She loves when Buddha chews on his toys and makes them squeak. Her smile gets so big :)
I taught her how to pet Gus Gus and her face lights up when I put Gus that close to her. Gus hates it by the way, she literally jumps out of my arms to get away. She is not into the baby one bit. But I did catch her laying on Harlow's play mat yesterday when Harlow was on it. But i'm sure if you ask Gus it was because it was next to the window she likes to sit under.
I love that she is awake all the time now.
And she has been sleeping from midnight until 7:30 again. We had a little lapse where she was waking up at 5:30. It is much easier to function at 7:30! Thank you Harlow for the extra sleep this past week!

Pete got to celebrate his first fathers day. If he looks a little tired in these pictures its because he has been working a lot more than usual. Their company is having a competition (and this guy and competitions is ridiculous) and he is determined to win the whole thing. I think he can, I just wish he could stay home more. He has been going out to work some days from 9am-10pm. See what I mean? RIDICULOUS! But he has beat everyone that he's been up against so far.
We really wanted to get out of the apartment and do something fun with Harlow. The zoo sounded like a great idea... and then we woke up Sunday morning and it was pouring rain...
While Pete was sleeping, I got up and decorated the living room so that when he walked out the first thing he would see was all the fathers day decorations and his card from Harlow. He was surprised for sure! haha.
We ended up just hanging out. Pete only had one request. Dairy Queen Blizzard. Easy enough.
We ended up deciding to drive to Tukwila just to get out of the apartment. We went to a HUGE mall and just hung out and looked at shoes. Pete loves shoes!

I also have a few ideas planned for Pete on Sunday. We (I, Harlow watched) made a banner that says Happy Father's Day and then put some tissue paper to some good use as decorations. I think I'll decorate while he's sleeping in the morning so he can wake up to it all. I'm leaving it up to Pete on what he wants to do on Sunday because we always end up doing what I want on Sundays, dont tell him I admitted to that though. No pictures of the decorations just yet, they are currently in hiding. :)
I also used a couple of peoples recommendation to check out Blurb.com to put together a book of all of the newborn pictures Stephanie Ryan took. It was a little pricey but I was so impressed when it arrived in the mail only 5 days later. I got a large square book and I was a little apprehensive to order it because I was afraid the quality of the pictures wouldnt be that great once I enlarged them. But I was so WRONG! I'm so glad I got the larger book. The pictures came out great!
We made little mini books for our dads for father's day too. The same as our book but the smaller version and less pictures/pages. They each have a picture of them with harlow in it. So cute! Sad I forgot to take a picture of them before I sent them off in the mail.

I figured she better wear this outfit before it gets too small. Even though this is a little boys onsie from Baby Gap, I had to buy it to support our bulldog Buddha as her big brother and Fresno State of course! Too bad this outfit probably won't fit by football season. :( Now all she needs is a uniform and a set of poms (and maybe some stunting and tumbling lessons from mom).
PS: I know Buddha's eye looks gross, he's gone blind in that one eye. So sad for the poor guy.
