It’s hard to believe that yesterday marked the Big Point Five for Harper. We’re half way to a year. Technically, it took the same amount of time as the previous six months. But, it hasn’t felt that way.
Harper is steadily mastering things like sitting up, crawling (albeit backwards), saying things that sound like “momma” and other baby things. She’s reached a point where her vocalizations are clearly a stand in for an attempt to communicate something verbally. As opposed to just screaming/crying. She’s grasped the notion that two humans will occasionally exchange information by way of looking at one another and moving their mouths while making sounds.
So. That’s cool. She’s certainly on the Bullard end of the spectrum in terms of normal speech volume. In fact, everyone but me (and the new puppies) appears to be on the Bullard end of the volume spectrum. An end which is extreme and loud. What I’m saying is that Claire and Harper ARE VERY LOUD EVEN WHILE CONDUCTING NORMAL CONVERSATIONS.
I wonder if we’re obligated to have pie on Harper’s birthday.
