Door County Part 1

A few weeks ago Joe, my mom and I headed to Door County, Wisconsin for my godsister's wedding. Many people have asked me what a godsister is. Let me explain. A godsister would be my mother's goddaugther. For years that has been how Liz(my godsister) and I have referred to each other.

Anyways, Harper went to spend the weekend with my Aunt Sue and Uncle Don and the She-She's at their lake house.

We picked up Colleen in Naperville and off we were to start the 5 hour road trip. Our first stop was in Milwaukee for a delicious lunch and a refreshing beverage.
After we filled up we were back on the road till we got to Green Bay, Wisconsin and we decided it was time to stretch our legs at one of the many wineries that were being featured. So off we went to Captain's Winery for a sampling of 9 wines, good thing it isnt much more than a sip

We were happy car-riders once we arrived at the hotel. We unpacked went through our snazy wedding bag, and then decided it was time we walked around the downtown area. It is absolutely beautiful. So many different shops, and the water is gorgeous!

At the end of the night after dinner we found a cute tiki bar that is right on the water and the name of the bar was extra special for Joey this is his grandpa name from his Zanoni side of the family!

Part 2 is up for tomorrow get ready for lots of gorgeous wedding photos!

Where We Have Been?

Good Morning,

The answer to the title of this post is two-parted EVERYWHERE and EVERYONE! Life has been super busy in last couple of weeks with big events at home and traveling along with a week without internet due to a storm at our house!

The good thing is that I am going to do a post everyday this week so it should catch up everyone on what has been going on lately.

Here are a few pictures of Harper's favorite new activity around the house! Who needs toys when you have the laundry basket she loves for me to carry her up the stairs in the laundry basket and than she lays in it when I set it on our bed to unload! This girl keeps us smiling all the time!

9 Months Old

How can my sweet girl be 9 months old already??? It has gone by so very fast!!

Harper is really becoming her own little person and everyday her personality comes through more and more.

Weight: 19.4 lbs (70th Percent)

Length: 28.3 inches (80th percent)

Diaper Size: 4

Clothes: 12 months mostly

Food: Harper is an eater!! She loves sitting in her chair and eating. We have moved to more table foods and she loves items like raspberries, veggies, shredded cheese, cottage cheese, turkey, eggs etc. She always wants to try what we are eating! She typically has cereal after her first bottle in the morning, eats some kind of stage 3 baby food when she wakes up and then again at 5ish!

Sleeping: Harper takes to napes a day. Usually the first one about 2.5 hours after she wakes up. Around 3 she goes down for her afternoon nap and sleep till 5 and usually dad is home so she gets very excited when he gets her out of her crib. Concerning her sleeping she has learned a couple of new tricks. She will through her pacis over her crib. The other day I pulled her crib out from the wall and found 5 pacis behind there! I wondered where all those pacis were going to!!!! Harper also now stands up in her crib on the end of her crib that is nearest the door and will watch us walk and then starting hooting and hollering! She is a smart little girl!

Some of Harper's favorites:
-SWIMMING!!! She loves when we go to the pool or if we fill up her own little pool in the backyard!
-Playing in the laundry basket. who needs expensive toys to play with when you can sit in the laundry basket while mom folds away all the clothes.
-Kitchen items: When I am out in the kitchen cooking Harper loves to be given some measuring cups and a pot and she makes her own little tune to music

HARPER HAS A TOOTH! On her bottom front gum it emerged almost 2 weeks ago. I was so glad ot see it had arrived because she had been working on it for so long!

Harper isn't just crawling backwards anymore! She is on the go and it has changed the game around the house! We have to watch her alot closer!

We love this sweet girl very much and are blessed with her everyday!
