Is today the day????

I woke up this morning and started to get ready for church and then realized I was having a few pre-labor/early labor symptoms and decided maybe we should just stay home. I was scared I would go into labor in the middle of the service and that would not be good. It's like the time a year or two ago that we had Travis Cottrell singing at our church one Sunday morning and right when he started singing "In Christ Alone" (I was ready for a moment of worship with God) - this man behind me started having a seizure and passed out and I stood up and screamed for this doctor in our church. I can't believe I did that - but I also thought the man was going to die. He was fine.
Anyway - I jumped up and got my cookies all bagged up so we could have those ready for the hospital. And then I took a shower so I could have good hair and make-up on should I go to the hospital. (there are WAY too many pictures taken on the big day to not have good hair and lipstick). ha! And then I settled down to watch church on TV - and I saw some really good services. :-) I was a little sad to miss church because this would have been our last childless Sunday EVER and I know I'll probably miss the next few weeks of church while we settle in with Harper and I can't stand to be away from my church that long. Hopefully Scott and I can trade off keeping her at home after a week or two so I can at least go some.
Well - the news is - I'm not in labor yet. But I think it could be anytime. And I'm either nesting or have a small case of ADD (which I think is true of me all the time because I can NOT just sit still) - I decided to make some chocolate pretzels with pink sprinkles to go along with the cookies. Ya'll better come see us in the hospital! ha! :-)
On to a different subject:

WHO IS EXCITED ABOUT AMERICAN IDOL STARTING THIS WEEK?????????????????
I love it so much!!!!! If you watch it - who is your all time favorite American idol? It doesn't even have to be the winner - it could be one of the runner- ups?
My all time favorite is David Cook from last season. I LOVED him. And I loved watching him get better and better each week. He blew me away. I can't wait to see what this season holds!

P.S. If you are a teacher (or even if you aren't) - you should go read the post my brother just wrote. There is a reason I think he is the funniest person I know.

Kelly-

I am praying for you every day and read your blog often and can't wait to see pics of your sweet Harper, and what a generous and nice thing to do for your nurses and people that come visit. I know they will be blessed by your giving spirit. Things are going well in my pregnancy these days, I enjoyed our quick chat that one day on facebook, and it is truly a blessing that i am 13 weeks along now! I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers, and hope both sets of your parents have a safe trip when they get the big call they have been waiting so long for. Blessings! Amy Talbert

Hi Kelly...I have been reading your blog faithfully the past few months! You are inspring me to start my own! I had to comment on two things....1. I have checked your blog 12 times today!! 2. I also hurried and got a shower and did my makeup! And...right before they said let's start pushing...I refreshed my lipstick!! You are so right about the pictures! I wish your family all of the luck and joy this baby will bring to your lives! My babies are 7 and 5, and I miss those baby days! They go so fast, cherish every sleepless night!! :-)

Jodi said...

I am so jealous of the nurses and the people that come see you! They are getting away with some yummy stuff!! Maybe I need to drive a couple of hours to make a hospital visit?! :) I am VERY excited about AI. There are so many good shows on right now that I think my DVR my burn up! HA! Oh, and, I am a teacher, and loved your bro's post!!!

The Garners said...

So happy to "hear" from you...I've thought all day long that this was the day!? Maybe it still is...it's a while until midnight!

Your sweet treats for the hospital are way cute--you seriously have your life SO organized! I'm jealous! I feel like I'll be lucky to just get myself to the hospital this time around! :)

I'm excited about A.I.!!! I think 24 starts too, doesn't it!?

Ashley said...

Kelly, I have checked your blog probably 20 times today. I went to get groceries and I checked before and after!

I love your cute ideas, your going to be such a sweet and considerate mommy.

My favorite was Brooke from last year because she was so soft spoken and humble about the whole experiance. I LOVE American Idol!

Good luck, I'm holding my breath for you and saying lots of little prayers.

~Ashley

Lana said...

I love all of the treats you have made...too cute and sweet!! I've also been checking in quite often to see if there were any posts about Harper coming! It's so exciting! Being a teacher, I loved the post that your brother wrote! I can totally relate! I have to admit...I haven't been a faithful American Idol fan! I like it when I watch it, though! I do remember seeing David Cook and several others. Good luck...I know the big day is coming soon!

Leigh Ann said...

Okay, your brother makes me laugh HYSTERICALLY! That little video about put me over the edge! I needed that laugh today!

Heather said...

I LOVE those hospital goodies! I did the same thing with the hair, make-up, etc. when I went into labor with Connor. You are right about the million pics!
I SOOOO want to know what your sitemeter says about your blog activity this week- because like everyone else I have been checking it pretty much everytime I walk by the computer...which is ALOT!
Love you friend! Praying for you, Scott, and Harper!

P.S. I loved when Mandisa was on Idol and I also love Carrie and felt the same way you did about David Cook. We are SO READY for Tuesday night!

The Branches said...

Wow! You have been busy! Those cookies and pretzels look so yummy. I've been checking your blog just waiting to hear that Harper is coming...you and Scott are in my prayers!!! I'm excited for you both! Much love, Becky

Oh-Your brother's post was hilarious! My mom is a teacher and she's gotten a ton of wooden jewelry, only she is actually one of the ones that actually did wear it...ha..ha...along with her stirrup pants and long knit sweaters. I sometimes wonder what she did with all that stuff?

Leah said...

I just read your brother's post. HYSTERICAL! I call the teacher gifts the start of a garage sale! :) One year, I got a ship in a bottle. So funny!

I also read your parent's posts the other night which made me teary eyed. NOthing like seeing grandparents get excited over the first grandbaby! Precious.

You are the most thoughtful person ever. With my next baby, I'm gonna have to remember to take treats to the hospital. How sweet! I wish we still lived in NWA and I'd come visit you just to get a cookie and a pretzel! ha! Can't wait to see pictures of that sweet little girl!

Betsy said...

Kelly, I am literally checking your blog every five minutes just waiting to see when you are going into labor! haha I was so excited when I saw the title of this blog. Anyway...it can't be long. And you are so sweet to have treats ready for your visitors!

I am heading over to your brother's blog. I know I will appreciate anything having to do with teachers! I read his blog the other day and already love it!

I will check back here soon. Keep us posted! (Like I need to tell you that--haha)

Jenna said...

David Cook all the way! He sealed it for me when he sang Mariah's "Always be my baby." I pretty much wanted him to win/marry him from that point on.

The goodies look delicious!! They couldn't possibly be as sweet and delicious as that Harper-girl, but that new baby/pretzel treat combo begs the question - Why do I live in GA and not AR at a time like this? :-)

Lauren said...

I love those cookies! They seriously may never discharge you (Ha!)... Those nurses and Dr.'s are going to be so spoiled! :)

I am hoping tonights the night... That is my guess!

Can't wait to see pictures of that sweet girl!

Allison said...

I'm so sad that I couldn't be working at the hospital that you are going to be delivering at. You would be so fun as a patient! :) Hope she comes soon! Oh yeah...Carrie Underwood has been my favorite so far! She is so down to earth in her concert and so appreciative to American Idol...it's amazing!

Josh & Sarah said...

Brooke White!!! Love her!!!

Just read your brother's blog...my husband and I both used to be teachers, so that totally hit home with me! lol!!!

KayceRee said...

OMG--you're so creative! The cookies and pretzels look DELICIOUS and adorable in their little bags. I wish I was going to be one of your visitors! : )

Angie said...

So cute!! I love that you made little gifts for the people that are coming to the hospital. I hope Harper comes soon!!

leslie ruth said...

Ok, that story about you and Travis Cottrell (two t's, two l's as BooMama would say) is HIGH-larious. I'm sure Travis just thought you were bearing a very enthusiastic witness :)

You realize that you are going to be the nurses' favorite patient, right? You're so kind to think of gifts for them! This just may be the most well put-together birth plan EVER.

Can't wait to see the post title, "We're Off to the Hospital!"

Lisa said...

Ok, I so need to find out where you are having so I can come and see you and have yummy treats!! Girl - you are amaing me with the energy you are having when you are just about ready to POP!! You crack me up about having nice hair and great make-up...don't forget to shave your legs (lol). That was always my main concern (hahaha). Hoping to hear some great news soon!!

Scherr Family said...

You have us all on pins and needles. I can't wait to see when Harper comes. I have to check in constantly to see if anything is happening yet. ;) I hope she comes soon so you can meet your precious blessing. You are so sweet to be thinking of others at a time like this. I only wish I had thought of it before my kids' birth. I'll be checking twitter and your blog for the BIG news. I'll be praying for you.
Mandi

Beav's Wife said...

you are too much! love the goodies you made and your brothers post mad this former teacher completely crack up! can't wait for "the big post!!!" jenny

Julie said...

I just knew you were going to say that you were off to the hospital!!
I can't wait to see the post that says you are!

I am SUPER excited about AI starting this week. My favorite contestant of all time was last season's Michael Johns (the Austrailian). My friend and I actually went to Tulsa to see American Idols Live this fall. David Cook was awesome too!

I'm a teacher and I'm headed over to your brother's blog now.

Now, go eat some Mexican food to see if we can't get Harper to hurry up!

Jenna said...

Oh yay! It would be so cool if we both were in the hospital tomorrow! The cookies and pretzles are so cute!

Gary,Carri, & Calli said...

I just knew you would have her today! I dreamed last night that you were in labor! I'm so happy for you guys...thanks for keeping us updated! Praying for a smooth delivery!

Kim said...

Those are the cutest treats to hand out to your visitors! Praying for you during this precious time... PS ~ My kiddos and I are very excited about American Idol! :)

Patty said...

You are so sweet to think of your friends who will be stopping by the hospital to visit you and Harper. :)

I am excited about American Idol. I loved David Cook but I also like Carrie Underwood. I cannot wait to see the new judge and I am so glad they are bringing back the wild card.

Rebekah said...

Kelly I have been checking your blog everyday to see if Harper is here yet. Those pretzles and cookies are so cute and such a great idea! I can't wait for American Idol to start back. I am so looking forward to this season.

Amber Schmidt said...

I haven't faintest clue how I found your blog but I want to tell you Congratulations and best wishes. I just said a quick prayer for your family as you experience your new addition!

PS... I am just oogling over the adorable cookies you made for Harper!!!

Kristy said...

I read your brother's blog and it was hilarious!!! I am a teacher, so I can totally relate!
I checked several times today to see if Harper was here... I'm praying for you!!

Shawna said...

oh my gosh, you made me laugh so hard with that Travis Cottrell story! I'm glad you stayed home and had a true day of rest.

I don't know if I've ever even left a comment on your blog but I've been following your daily going-ons for quite a while now.

Pray blessing on you and sweet Harpers arrival!

XO, *Shawna from Vancouver, Canada

Alexandra's Mommy said...

Everything is so cute.. Got your bag packed!?! Her cute outfits picked out, you seem organized and ready to welcome this little one into the world!!! Cant wait to see pictures of her!!

Justin and Jenn said...

I just love reading your blog...it's one of my daily must-reads (as daily as you update!). Anyway, I can't wait to "meet" little Harper. I hope labor goes smoothly!

Gracie Beth said...

I wish I could come see you in the hospital just to taste some of those goodies! Perhaps Harper will come tomorrow, it is my parents 24th wedding anniversary!

kate said...

I went back and looked at what you were doing Jan 2008...and, oh how your heart longed for a baby. I went on and read a few more entries - loved the one about Lady in Waiting - have the book AND the journal! Just like waiting for scott, your provision, God has made Harper for you...THIS January!

I am so happy for you! Love the cookies and pretzels (my VERY favorite item to eat - pretzels and chocolate). It makes me want to drive over from OKC!

While you sit and wait...I wonder why my posting updates don't pop under my name? I'm a follower and all.

Off to eat dinner! loves, k8

The Masseys said...

I have kept checking your blog all day today to see if there was any news, I voted for today on the poll so I was very hopeful for today. :) Here's hoping it is soon.

Everything that you made for the hospital is so previous!

And I am SO excited about AI!!!

ocean mommy said...

Well this would explain why I was thinking about YOU during church this morning! I figured that you were at the hospital or getting ready to go.:) Isn't it just like God to use something like blogs to bring His children together!

Praying for you!
Stephanie

(the nurses and visitors are in for such a treat!)

Colette said...

I am actually aching for Harper to arrive!

You are just way too cute, it's so lovely that you've made gifts for your nurses and your visitors. I bet people don't often experience that.

I'm really craving your chocolate pretzels!

petrii said...

Kelly,
Oh my stars, I keep checking to see if you are in labor yet. You have just the sweetest heart. Making those treats is so kind of you. Everyone will love them and you and Scott and of course Sweet baby girl Harper.

Well I'll keep a checking,
Dawn

hudsmom said...

There is a huge full moon tonight. My mother always told me babies seem to come when the moon changes. Old wives tale. Best of luck! You are going to be a fantastic mother!

creative gal said...

Love the pretzels!! You are so kind!!

Deidre said...

Such a cute idea to make cookies and pretzels - very thoughtful. Wow, it's so close, Kelly. I pray you have a safe and PAIN FREE delivery :)

Brittani's Holding Little Hands said...

You had me willing and ready to drive to the hospital with the cookies alone, but the chocolate pretzels just officially sealed the deal! I'm seeing "room mother" in your future! You are amazing.

Lacy said...

Wish I could come visit y'all at the hospital (& partake of all the yummy treats)! Praying for a great delivery, and I can't wait to see some pictures of sweet Harper! :)

Anonymous said...

I don't live anywhere close to you, but BOY DO I IWSH I DID!! Your visitors are so lucky to have someone like you as a friend!!

jenkins_k08 said...

i cant wait to see her. your life is almost complete. she will be soo precious. I'm praying for you and harper.

Natalie said...

You are so CUTE! I wish I lived closer so I could come visit and grab some of those cookies and pretzels :) !! Today is my son's birthday and let me tell you, he's 4 yrs old and it has gone by SO fast!!

Good Luck!! We'll be thinking about you here in Tampa!

PS ~ I read your brother's blog -- he is so funny. I actually have very good friends that are teachers and I ask them "What is a good gift" and they all say GIFT CARDS!! We do a white elephant gag gift exchange and they always throw something in they got from one of their students. It's so funny.

Kim said...

I LOVE American Idol, and David Cook is my ALL time favorite!
I am a teacher, so I found your brother's post hilarious. I laughed so hard, especially about the body butter part!
I will be praying for you and Harper. Can't wait to see pictures.

Lori said...

I bet all the talk at church today was about your whereabouts and Harper's "whenabouts" (I just made that word up). I have a feeling tomorrow is your big day. It's just a little feeling, and let's hope I'm right and that she doesn't come Tuesday in the middle of American Idol!

Kayla said...

Oh my word. You're so cute!! I tol Kale this morning that I think precious Harper is coming tomorrow! This post makes me so much more excited!!!! That girl is already SOOO loved and your parents are ready for a drive!!!

Whitney Vanderbilt said...

It is a full moon tonight, so maybe we will have something exciting to read tomorrow :) Good luck, Kelly!

Crazy About My Boys said...

You are just the cutest...making treats for everyone who comes and visits you, oh, and gifts for the nurses! You have the kindess heart! I am praying Harper comes soon! I check your blog throughout the day to see if there is any news!! : )

American Idol is on of the few shows that my husband and I watch together. Such fun! We are excited for the new season too! My favs are Carrie Underwood and David Cook! Take care!

julie & joe said...

Your goodie bags look beautiful! Bringing your child to church has perks. The week before Christmas an elderly friend who sits behind us told us that we had made his Christmas this year because he enjoyed watching and playing with our son in church so much. I had never thought of how much people who have grown children in their lives love to see the little ones.

Harper's Mommy said...

I love your hospital treats! You're so creative and thoughtful. I wish you luck in the next few days and hope everything goes perfect. I can't wait to see pictures of your Harper.

Monelle said...

I wondered about you all day! Glad you posted. I feel like tomorrow is the day! I am so excited for you!

Michele said...

I keep checking back hoping to see a picture of sweet baby Harper! Hurry up! :)

kate said...

okay, I changed my site feed to FULL. good catch on that one...

so excited about the bachelor tomorrow night...just saw a clip for it! k

Anonymous said...

AMERICAN IDOL IS BACK. ALL TIME favorite...........Carrie Underwood. My prayers are with you this week. Enjoy.....remember...........savor............

Carol said...

Kelly,
I've been reading your blog for quite sometime & have enjoyed it so much! I'll be praying for you to have a wonderful labor & delivery. What a blessing you're about to receive when your little girl arrives. I'm going to be a grandma for the 1st time in about 6 weeks. His name will be Ethan Asher. I'm so excited!
Blessings & Prayers,
Carol

Fran said...

Girl, you know I'm praying for you.
And, I bet those nurses and staff are praying they are on for when Harper comes! :) Its gonna be the bestest day!!

Hugs,
Fran

Katie said...

I have checked in on you a hundred times this weekend...hehe! (Okay, maybe not a hundred, but close probably...) Kelly, you are so cute to make up all those little cookies and chocolate-dipped pretzels for visitors!! I just love that! I'm praying for you, Kelly! :o)

Sarah B. said...

Seriously, you are crazy. Before i had both my kids I was sitting around reading, just waiting and you are baking and cooking and putting cute little bows on everything. I just love it. And how sweet to have cookies for your hospital guests...I am so going to have to do that if I am blessed enough to get pregnant again. You will be in my prayers tonight..best wishes.

Pharmacist Erin said...

I think all your readers are so anxious for y'all!!! I keep checking your blog constantly, too! You are in the prayers of so many. I love the idea of baking goodies to give out to visitors. And they look so cute and delicious!

Jacquie said...

I hope Harper doesn't hold out too long - your Dad was a mess all week LAST week!! (I imagine you're Mom was at home even worse than him. ha!)

You are making all of us typical go-to-hospital-and-have-baby-and-go-home mothers look bad with all those precious gifts for the hospital!!!!

AI - LOVE IT! Set my DVR today. I started watching it the year that Carrie Underwood won. I picked her at the beginning of the top 12. I picked Daughtry at the beginning of the top 12. And I picked David Cook as well. (Can I help it that America wasn't as smart as me where Daughtry was concerned???) Those three are my all-time favorites. Don't think I can narrow it down more than that.

It's a FULL MOON tonight, sister. Keep that suitcase by the door. (My baby doctor swore by full moon and thunderstorms.)

meg @ spicy magnolia said...

All of your snacks look so yummy and cute! If I was helping you make them, I would've eaten half of them by now. :)

I am SO thankful for all the fresh shows on TV right now that will help get through those hours of feeding entertaining. So, YES, I am excited about "American Idol", and I was THRILLED about "24" tonight. Plus, "Lost" is coming...it just makes me a giddy girl!

Still waiting...going on 3 days late. :) Happy due date for you, tomorrow!!

Kris said...

You are too cute to make all those gifts for the hospital staff and the make-up...ohhhh, I did the same thing. You better believe I had my hair and make-up done for the birth of my kids, especially my sweet girl! I can't believe you are SO CLOSE!!! I can't wait to check you blog and see a sweet little Harper staring back - I hope it goes well for you!

Jennifer said...

I love that you are going to be a hostess even at the hospital! Those all look so good!! I showed Josh and he even thought the cookies and pretzels looked good and he is a health nut and doesn't eat sweets!:)

I'm going to WC tomorrow to visit one of my friends from church who had her baby tonight! If you hurry Harper can be in the nursery with her baby!!

chickadee@afamiliarpath said...

you are so organized! i bet my drs and nurses were wondering where their cookies were. all they got were some dumb jokes while i was high on medication.

Jennifer said...

I am giving away some personalized fruit rollups on my blog. I wanted to invite you over to enter the giveaway. Also if you don't mind mentioning it on your blog, I'd love to have more enter as well. :) It's a fabulous giveaway!

Thanks!!

Yankee in England said...

Ha Ha, every morning when I get up the first think I do is log on and see if Harper has made her apperance. A little weird that I am this excited about a woman I have never met and don't know going into labour. Good luck

Anonymous said...

Hi Kelly,

The first thing I do every morning is check your blog to see if Harper has arrived! I remember this time so well.....scary and exciting at the same time. My "babies" are 22 and 19, but a mom never forgets waiting for their arrival!

You are both in my prayers. I can't wait to see the first pictures of your precious baby girl!

Take care Kelly,

Margaret, Virginia Beach, VA

Jess :) said...

Kelly,

I, as well as sooooo many others, continue to check your blog about every 5 minutes. I know, a little crazy, but I don't want to miss anything. I would give ANYTHING to be able to come visit you at the hospital! I wish they had a direct flight from Sioux Falls, SD. :) I'll try to work on that!

Anyways, CAN'T WAIT FOR IDOL!!!!! I'm so pumped. However, I'm having such a hard time with the fact that it's on at the same time as Biggest Loser. What is a girl to do?!?! I tell ya'! Guess my DVR will be working overtime.

Sending my love, blessings, and well wishes for a very smooth and joyous labor. I can't wait to "meet" little Harper, either!!

Love and hugs,
Jess :)

P.S. I'm going to read your brother's blog right now...since I am a teacher...I'm really looking forward to it. :)

Jaime said...

You may feel differently about church when the time comes. My daughter was born on a Saturday, we came home from the hospital on Sunday and by the next Sunday, I was DYING to get out of the house, so we went to church. It was great. Our daughter just slept in her pumpkin seat through the whole thing! This was in February too!

Lauren Kelly said...

You are too cute Kelly and so creative and thoughtful. I hope Harper makes her appearance VERY soon!!! Tell her she has all your bloggy friends wanting to see her, and see if that will speed it up!!! :)

Well, I would say with all of the television shows coming back on, you'll have plenty of time to nest at home and catch all of them!!!

We love you girl and praying for a smooth delievery, WHEN it happens, haha!!!

Have a GREAT day!!!

Kari said...

Hello...i'm on of "those people" who reads your blog daily, but rarely leaves a comment!lol I checked your blog at least 3 times yesterday wondering if there was any news yet...i picked yesterday for Harper's arrival. Those treats are ADORABLE! Like most...I can't wait to "meet" Harper and see what cute outfit she will be wearing first!

The Allens said...

I love the treats you made for your visitors. I think that was a very nice idea! What did you end up getting the nurses? I plan to do nurses gifts, but I wasn't sure what to do...

Megan L Hutchings said...

I have been thinking about you all weekend! Just know whenever it happens there will be thousands of prayers over you :).

I love American Idol too! My favorites have been Chris Daughtery and David Cook!!!

The Bona Fide Preppy Bride said...

You are always the first blog I have to read in the morning lately so I can see if little Harper has arrived! You are so prepared, you are doing such a great job! Good luck this week!

Danny, Julie, Jack and Mari said...

Thinking of you!!! We're all here just waiting for the big announcement and pictures!

Here's to hoping that you get to watch American Idol with Miss Harper in your arms tonight!

Julie said...

I click over here again and still no Harper!! Uggghhhh!!!! I can only imagine how you and Scott feel. How in the world are you sleeping at night? I would be so crazy excited!!!

You are remarkable to make the cookies and pretzels! What a great idea!!

Julie said...

I click over here again and still no Harper!! Uggghhhh!!!! I can only imagine how you and Scott feel. How in the world are you sleeping at night? I would be so crazy excited!!!

You are remarkable to make the cookies and pretzels! What a great idea!!

The Shabby Princess said...

And pretzels too?? Wow! You are amazing. Harper is a lucky little girl.

Jordan said...

I wish I lived close to you guys so I could see Harper in person!!

You're going to be an AMAZING mother as well as Scott being an AWESOME dad! =]

Can't wait to see pictures of Harper, she's going to be beautiful!!

You are so close! Maybe today???? =)Come on Miss Harper!

Gail said...

Kelly~
I have been following your blogs for a little while now~ they are great. You are so sweet to make cookies for your nurses! How thoughtful and kind. What a blessing that your 'Dwelling in the Land' blog is to so many. What a wonderful way to use a blog- and for God's glory. I forwarded it to my sweet niece and her husband who are waiting on the Lord and His timing.
You are in my prayers as you about to deliver your precious little Harper.

God bless~
Gail

Shannon C said...

Your brother's post on Teacher Gifts is funny and true. As a former teacher, I only give gift cards.

Jamie said...

I know I don't comment often but I've been thinking of you all weekend, wondering if that sweet Harper arrived yet. I'm so excited for you & can't wait to see all the beautiful pics.

Kathryn said...

I keep hitting the refresh button in hopes that there's news! I had a dream over the weekend that you hurried and moved to Beverly Hills before Harper was born! You and Scott are definitely on my mind as you await the miracle. So soon! Can't wait to see pics.

michelle said...

those cookies and pretzels are just too cute!! i will be checking this all day today hoping for some news!!! harper is going to be beautiful and i know you cant wait to hold your precious little girl!!

Elyse said...

I went into labor when my pastor got up to preach. My husband and I timed the contractions through the sermon. I took over timing them wheh he got up to help serve communoin! We made it all the way to the end of church and then rushed home. I ended up having my second little girl that night. That is one church service that I will never forget!
I hope everything goes well for you and little Harper, whenever she comes!
Elyse

Kendra said...

Oh my goodness...I am sooooooo excited for you Kelly!!
Praying!

Tiffany said...

I am checking this blog EVERYDAY to see if Harper makes an appearance soon!!!

And I am oh so excited for Idol!!!!!! Carrie Underwood is my all time fave. I love country and she sang her tail off. Can't wait!

CAMoore said...

OK so I can't stop checking your blog...you and Jenna have me freaking out! I can't wait to see Harper and here how you are doing?

PS. IF you hear from Jenna let me know!!!

Amanda

chesley said...

I can't believe you've made all that stuff to take to the hospital. Your visitors and nurses are lucky. After the way I acted during my delivery, I sure wished that I had a peace offering to give to the L&D nurses. Good Luck!

Suzette said...

You seriously deserve some sort of award! I think that is such a sweet gesture! Anytime we've had a family member in the hospital, welcoming a new member or for any reason at all, my dad has always bought tons of chocolate to hand out to the nurses. He swears they always get better care b/c of it! haha! I'm going to attempt to follow in your footsteps for my big day as well! We'll see if I'm the trooper you are at 40 weeks! haha! Wondering if you're in the hospital?!?! It sure was a big moon last night! :)

Jennifer said...

I am so excited for you!! I'm an eager blog-reader who can't wait to see Harper and hear all of your news.

I love your cookies and pretzels - I wonder if I can be that crafy when I'm so close to having a baby!

Looking foward to hearing all the news and meeting your precious baby girl! (o:

Kristin said...

I'm dying here.....too much suspense! I can't wait until I check the blog and Harper's made her arrival!

Wow....you are going to need a whole separate suitcase to carry all of your goodies that you made! They are so neat. What a special moment this will be with you, Scott, and all of your nurses!

I think I've checked in 5 times so far today to see if there's any news. An update please! We're so excited about precious Harper's arrival!

And I love the gifts for the nurses and your guests. I wish I had thought of that! Maybe next time!

Is she here yet...is she here yet!!??? :)

Melissa said...

I keep checking to see if you went into labor yet! Any day now!

I'm a teacher, and what your brother wrote is so true! Too funny!

Rachel said...

Okay - I am constantly checking....ANYTHING????

Mandy said...

Kelly...you're killing me! I was just at the doctors office and was wondering if you were downstairs with little Harper?? I hope everything is going great and I can't wait to see pictures of her sweet little face!!!

Rathi said...

Clicked over to see if Harper was here yet! I guessed the 13th on the poll, maybe i'll be right?? Can't wait to see pictures!!!

Just checking in to see if you are in labor...the suspense is killing me...any news?? I assume you are at the hospital since you are off work now and haven't posted a blog today. :) I love your gifts for the visitors! So thoughtful of you. I made lasagna while in labor with my 2nd child, the midwives loved it! ha!
Praying for a safe, quick, and WONDERFUL delivery.

Kelly, thinking of you at this very special time! You are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. Would love a cookie and pretzel, but Northern Ireland is a bit far to travel from!!

I trust that all will go very well (and very quickly!!) for you as you set out to meet Little Miss Harper!
