Pretty Woman

I'll do a better update later today but for now - I just HAD to share these pictures!!!!

I know she's mine - but oh my word I love her!!! They have spent all morning trying to get a PICC line in (it's a semi-permanent thing they put in to put all her IV's in so they don't have to constantly stick her.) They tried a ton of places and couldn't get it in (they even had to shave her head in two places to try to put it there). But that's okay - we have so many hats and head bands to cover up those shaved spots. I took a sweet hat in and I knew it would make her feel better. She was so alert - looking around at us.
Her little eyes are pretty blue right now but we know they could turn dark by summer. I really don't care either way but I think she looks just gorgeous either way.

Pray they can get her PICC line in - they will probably try again tomorrow. Other than that - she continues to do really well. They are going to let her rest tomorrow from all tests and procedures (except the PICC).

We are ICED IN big time here at the hospital. It is a mess outside - but we are so glad to be so close to the hospital where it's warm and we can spend time with our little sweetie!!!

P.S. I just wanted to add that our sweet girl is OFF her nitrate Oxide (I don't even know what that means except it's GOOD) and she is down to 26% oxygen!!) She will get to start feeding tomorrow or Thursday! She's a Stamps - she won't have ANY trouble eating!!
Also - ya'll are wearing the nurses out with all the mail and packages we have been getting!!!!! Thank you for all the sweet cards and gifts!!! I'm not going to put them on here today but you have thank yous coming - I promise!!!!!

I love you all for loving Harper so much!

You are right...she is BEAUTIFUL and perfect in every way. That little hat should have her feeling better in no time.

Oh, I know you want to hold her so bad and I am sure she wants to be laying in your arms too. It won't be long from the looks of things.

Andolicious said...

She is such a gorgeous baby and I LOVE that bow on her!! I will pray that they can get the PICC line in. I've seen that procedure done a couple of times on adults and I know it must be harder since she's a baby. I'm sure they'll be able to get it :) Hope you stay warm in the hospital. I know that just by looking at her is warming your heart. :)

Colin's Mom said...

Yes, those eyes! But also those chubby arms and torso. I'm sure that extra meat is part of her success story (as well at the miracle we've all witnessed!). Keep the pictures coming because she (and you) brightens my day!

Mommy Addicted to Scraps said...

We are iced in here as well!! I love it though!! :)

My son had to have the pic line in and they did it in his head. I was so upset because he just looked pitiful, but they say its the less painful place to have it. At least you have an excuse to use all those pretty little hats on her!!

You guys are always in my prayers.

P.S. Has she been alert and awake all day?? She looks so good. And her color is GREAT!!

Ellen said...

I have been praying for Harper and have asked everyone I know to pray for her. I teach Kindergarten at a Christian School and I had asked the children to pray for Harper and Braydon. Now each day during prayer time the children say, "We can't forget to pray for Harper and Braydon." They also told me they are praying for both babies in their homes with their families.
She is a gorgeous baby and I praise the Lord healing her.

Gina said...

She is absolutely beautiful...I am in love too! You and Scott make gorgeous babies.
Thanks so much for posting early...it's such a treat.
Oh, I just want to kiss that sweet little nose!

Your mom must be beside herself with joy over her!

Adventures on the Farm said...

Oh she was beautiful from day one but look at those knock out eyes...We are praying for Miss Harper and so thankful she is getting better day by day.

My one year old, Henry got so excited and was pointing to Harper's picture. She is already driving the boys crazy!
Praying for a PICC line.

Kylie said...

Oh my word- she's the prettiest little girl ever! (I mean, except for my own daughter!) Look at those beautiful eyes... and that hat! Love it!
Thank you for all of the updates. Praying they will get that line in on their very next try. And that she continues to grow stronger and healthier every moment. I am anxiously awaiting the post with the picture of her in your arms!

What a cutie!! That hat is fabulous. One of my students has a PICC line because he has weekly enzyme replacement treatments. HOpe they get it in so sweet little Harper doesn't have to keep being pricked by the IV lines all the time!

Jamie said...

So beautiful!! It really is a blessing to get to see her so awake and healthy-looking.

Ms. Salti said...

Woo hoo! I'll send my best friend out to do the PICC line. She's a pro! Good luck with that tomorrow. It's so nice to see her pretty eyes open!!!

becca said...

she is precious. If you get a dark-eyed baby, I will be jealous. You'd think ONE of my babes would have my eyes, but NOPE. Most are green.
What is that gold heart on her tummy? I've seen it in several pictures but have no idea what it is.

Kelly Taylor said...

Look how sweet in that big bow!!! We all knew she could pull it off wearing those big bows and hats. Kelly, she is truly gorgeous! I can't wait to see more updates and pics of those beautiful baby blues with bows on that sweet head! We're all so thankful for God's work in Harper's life.

Anna said...

Oh my goodness she is just the sweetest thing! So gorgeous! You are blessed! Your family continues to be in our prayers. I am so glad Harper is doing so well, and so happy that you get to look into those precious eyes!

Anna

Lisa said...

Oh my goodness...She is a cutie and I must say that I think she looks like her Mommy : )

Nothing like carrying her for over 9 months and her coming out looking like you - huh?

I went through years of fertility treatments, shots after shots, IVF and 38 1/2 weeks of pregnancy and he comes out and looks like a twin to his Daddy (lol). Aww, that is ok. I still love him with all my heart and soul.

Enjoy your time with your sweet girl. I love the hat and bow!!

Lauren Kelly said...

Oh my!!! HOW CUTE IS SHE!!!!!! She's going to be a heart breaker Kelly, I tell you, a heart breaker, watch out boys!!! :)

Elyse Shirley said...

Love the new pictures! Don't worry about the shaved spots because she will probably wear bald patches on her head when she is moving more. I know that my little girl did and she has dark hair like Harper.
Praying about the PICC line and that they are able to get it in.

My husband and I sat just where you are right now almost 5 years ago in Little Rock Baptist NICU. We said when we got to bring our chubby NICU baby (9 lbs 7oz and same story as Harper) we were going to have the biggest party ever!! She is now a healthy perfect 4 1/2 year old PRINCESS!! I pray for Harper's continued healing and that her mommy and daddy get to hold her soon!!!

Sasha said...

She is gorgeous! So glad she is doing so well and awake!

The great thing about Oklahoma is that it will probably be 80 in 2 days to melt all the ice!

carla said...

What a wonderful sight to see those beautiful eyes looking at YOU! God Bless you and your little family! Our grandbaby is now 7years old and was born 6 weeks early. She was at St Francis in Tulsa and today she is a girly-tomboy. She loves ruffles, princess dresses and climbing trees. Wal-Mart shopping is her favorite thing. The Lord brought us through a fearful time day by day just as your journey will take you. He Has All The Time In The World to Hear Each Prayer! Hugs from "Boo's Nannie" Her real name is Jalen but she is my Boo baby always

I wanted to write and let you know that we will say a prayer for Harper also. I FULLY understand all that you are going through right now. Currently My daughter is in the NICU also on a vent. She also Under went Heart surgery about 4 weeks ago. Each % point of O2 less is a happy moment. I trust that God will soon allow us both to take our babies home with us..

She is so beautiful!! I love the hat. She looks so much healthier now. Something tells me that when she gets home, is old enough to crawl around, there will be no stopping her. She'll say, i spent enough time in bed, I'm ready to roll. What a sweet little love bug she is and what awesome parents she will grow up with. Still praying/giving thanks/remembering the others, daily!
Will pray for the pic line placement. Can't wait to see her in her mommy and daddy's arms!! As a grandparent, I know they are anxiously waiting,too.

She is absolutely adorable!! I can't stop looking at her sweet little face. The hat looks perfect on her and I know you are loving every second of seeing it on her! :)

Helen said...

My goodness, she IS adorable! I know you love finally getting to see those big eyes! Go Harper, Go!

She is beautiful, Kelly! I want to love on those sweet cheeks!

Michele said...

Love, Love, Love the bow! She is just beautiful! What a blessing to see those sweet little eyes looking up at you. Enjoy being iced in with her!

HIS Child said...

Continued prayers for Harper and the babys in NICU. She is beautiful and those eyes are so expressive. We stand in Awe of our Mighty Jesus as he continues to allow Harper to add to His Kingdom, what an awesome God.

Glad Harper is making progress every day. I like slow daily progress rather than the roller coaster of up/down changes....Your family is in my thoughts and prayers and hopefully next week at this time Harper will soon be coming home:)

She looks so alert! How wonderful! You must be so excited and Yes, she is absolutely adorable! Thanks for sharing this special time with all of us.

Jacquie said...

Lovin' the hat!! Glad to hear she gets a day of rest. We'll be praying about her PICC line.

(I'm at Jodi's checking your blog - our power's out... and I've gone stir-crazy!!)

she looks just like her pretty momma!

Brittany said...

your baby girl is sooo precious!!! And I'm absolutely loving her name!
Your blog is such an inspiration and testimony of faith! Proverbs 16:9
"In his heart a man plans his course, but the LORD determines his steps."

I'm right in the middle of really understanding this verse. God knew you would have a healthy beautiful baby girl one day, he just had a little different plan to get you there!
But wow is HE getting glory from it!

Michelle said...

I gasped when I opened the page and saw beautiful eyes! So wonderfully exciting!

I've been praying for Harper over in BC, Canada. The Lord is good!

That has got to be the cutest little hat on that sweet little head! My firstborn had an IV in his head - I think it bothered everyone but me! It didn't occur to me to put a hat over it - that would have been so much more sightly! :) She is a beautiful girl Kelly!

Amanda said...

Pretty woman indeed!!! Kelly she's GORGEOUS!!! I am so happy you got to see her eyes and dress her up a little! It makes such a difference when you can finally put a little bit of clothing on your NICU baby, makes them look a little more "normal" and the rest of the wires and tubes kind of fade away. SOOOOOOO happy for you! Glad you are able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House so you are so close and not trying to commute to the hospital in the dangerous ice. God has it all worked out :)

Meredith said...

She IS beautiful and just adorable! PTL for all is miracles.... you can see God's fingerprints all over her!!!!

Megan said...

Look at that pretty girl! That PICC line will be the prettiest one of them all!

Under the Son said...

Oh My Word! She looks fabulous today. I am so happy to see those precious eyes. I will pray that the PICC line can be quickly places without pain to her.
I am so thrilled with the work that God has done so far. Oh what a powerful God we serve.

Ann said...

She looks like she is smiling at you in the first picture. So adorable.

Randee said...

YAY , She's looking better and better each day. She is such a very precious little Woman. I can't wait like most of ya'll to get the chance see her without all the tubes / Tape on / around her little face and Body. But, I'm surprised not to see any I.V's in her arms or little head like they Dr.'s had to do with me when I was about Harper's age.

PRAISE GOD!! I found your blog via a "Praying for Harper" button right after she was born. I have since added the button to my blog and prayed for her, you and Scott throughout my day each day.

I have so much respect for your courage and unconditional love, as well as your unwavering faith. Thank you for being a testiment for all of us to witness.

PS. Her eyes truly are beautiful. Praise the Lord!

PRAISE GOD! When I saw the first pic of Harper with her eyes open, I cried as if she were my own. What beautiful, bright eyes. She looks so alert & inquisitive. Thanks for you wonderful updates. What a blessing & a great way to thank the hundreds of well-wishers & prayers. :) We will all meet one day.

Pink is her color!

Kelli said...

When Caroline was in the NICU, it was SO hard to watch them stick her over and over again. They ended up putting a PICC line through her umbilical cord. Crazy huh? I hope that sweet girl doesn't get anymore sticks than she has to!

Michelle said...

SO wonderful to see those eyes! She is SO precious and beautiful!!

A happy heart at home said...

Harper is so beautiful! Praying they get the line in.
