stand and clap

This sweet precious darling angel baby girl can now stand and clap.  Check it out:

Harper started standing on her own last week and she clapped her hands for the first time today.  This age is so much fun.  Nine month olds are so sweet and little, and they do the cutest things.  And the bonus is they can't talk back, disobey, get out of their beds, refuse to wear the clothes you put on them, hit their siblings, say potty words, or ask to play Wii forty-seven times a day.  Speaking of Liam and Hayden...

I love these kids, but they're kind of like kittens.  When you see a kitten you think,"oh my goodness, look how sweet and soft and tiny.  i want one!"  You don't realize that the cute little kitten will not stay that way.  In no time it morphs into a big, hairy cat that makes messes, annoys the fire out of you, and is incapable of following commands.  I speak from personal experience. 

As I read that back it sounds kind of harsh.  It's been one of those days.  I'm thankful for my kids.  Really.


  1. you are hilarious. yeah for sweet harper! and, i would have to say that you speak the truth! :) and then there are those moments where they just melt your heart and it makes it all worthwhile.

  2. yes its true. they're worth it. but everyone deserves a fair warning!! :)

  3. what a sweetie pie! i wish i could hang out with you and your sweet kiddos. xoxo abs

  4. HA! Thanks for the laughs tonight! Hang in there momma! :)

  5. HAHAHAHAHA!!! I love you, Alisa. You're a good mama. I tell people so often that I don't think I could do what you do, having to parent and discipline and do so much without Will.

    On the subject of pets, I'm also reminded of how much you wanted to get Lucy once upon a time...:)

    That Harper is PRECIOUS!! Please show her lots of pictures of us so she'll know we're related. I so wish we could spend time with you all.

    Love you so much. You are rocking keeping your blog updated!

  6. Well in regard to Lucy...Will knew when he married me that I have a tendancy to act on impulse so I blame him for not reigning me in that day I walked down the street and adopted her.
