When Nolan goes to church, Mimi’s, a friend’s house, or off to spend time with his daddy, I make it a point to take Harper upstairs to play in her room! Since we all co-sleep, she doesn’t sleep in her room, but I wanted to make sure she still had a place to retreat to that was all her own. Her room has a super comfy all-white guest bed that we often lay around in when we are together without our boys. She loves to snuggle, and I soak in every moment that I can with her while she does because I know that these moments will pass all too quickly!
Last month we were photographed in our home by Kristina Mosley, and you can see more of Harper and Nolan’s rooms here. I wanted to keep everything at Harper’s fingertips in her room, but toys tend to accumulate quickly. I continuously go through her and Nolan’s toys in their rooms and the playrooms, so I keep everything pretty separated. I keep toys like books, cars, puzzles, and little figurines downstairs in the playroom for them to play with while they are together. The toys that were given to them for their birthdays or holidays I’ve organized in their own rooms. All of Harper’s toys fit into these cute little bins from Pehr Designs. I love pom poms and these canvas storage bins are covered in the cutest brightest ones! When we go in to her room she spends A LOT of her time at her kitchen. I am so excited that for Christmas one of her presents from my mom is a set of hot pink Melissa and Doug pans! She is going to have so much fun cooking up a storm with them.
Her personality grows by leaps and bounds every single day. It absolutely astounds me how big she is and how fast she learns things. Her imagination is forming, and she loves to play with her peg dolls. I contacted Peg Couture about making her some mermaids to go with her crochet mermaid doll that she carries around all of the time. When Harper opened the package, she made the cutest little gasp and grabbed her dolls with a huge smile on her face. She has played with Nolan’s before, and although they are getting better at sharing, I know she loves having her own made just for her! We will lay upstairs on the floor and play with them like they are swimming in the ocean. It makes me think of next summer when she will be running in and out of the waves with Nolan! She loves her big brother and mimics him so much that even he tells her how sweet she is when the moment hits him right!
