what she can do

Harper loves her jack-n-the-box. She is enthusiatically scaling the toilet every day and getting into things she shouldn't. She feeds her lunch to the dog. She can climb the ladder at the playground, but wants to hold hands to slide down. She cries every morning when Merriwether goes to school. She cares not to sleep on her own. She can say "baby" and sing the tune of the alphabet. She waves to helicopters and birds. She just had a bath in this picture. Otherwise you can count on her hair being enormous.

Future Rockettes?

One of the few events that is worth the planning needed to get a family out the door is Baltimore's Washington Monument Lighting. It is always a beautiful night in Mt Vernon square. It doesn't hurt that we have a friend with a FABULOUS historic apartment on the square and he hosts an amazing party every year. So after we have had enough of the park and the music we head upstairs and watch the whole event from Stephen's warm apartment (with a full bar and bartender). The only thing that is missing in this picture is Harper's substantial little legs in her mini Santa dress.

Tennis Anyone?

There is Merriwether and if you look super carefully you can see Serena Williams and Elena Dementiava in the background. You should notice that Merriwether is up waaaaaaaay past her bedtime AND has "balley-balls" in her hair just like a big girl. She started tennis lessons the very next day. Of course she has a pink racquet.
