Happy One Month!!!

My little monkey is one month today!
Time flies when you are having fun
Kaye made us this wonderful plaque after Harper was born and now she is giving one away - go here to see how to win!

Our wonderful Sunday School class is making meals this week and next. I've made a ton of meals over the last few years but you don't realize what a blessing it is until it's your turn. Especially when you have a high maintenance child that wants to be held 24/7 which makes cooking pretty much impossible.

Here is another family I would like to ask you to pray for. There are so many needs out there - please keep them in your prayers.

And praise - baby Brayden came home from the NICU today after 34 days! Can't wait for he and Harper to meet after they both get off of house arrest.

Happy 1 month birthday sweet Harper!!

Sara Madalin's Mommy said...

So happy for you. She's a doll. It only gets better.

And I saw on an earlier post that someone said they hoped this didn't turn into a "baby blog." Don't worry about people like that. You have every right to talk about your little miracle as much as you want - here or elsewhere. Keep posting pics and testifying about what God's done in your life and the life of this precious little girl.

Steffani said...

Happy one month Harper!!! She is so stinkin' adorable.

I'm glad to hear you are getting meals, I know it is a huge blessing. I have been in the position where I have been teh one recieving the dinners and lunches from church family .. just another way to be reminded of Gods love.

Angela said...

I am so happy to see her looking so good! God is so good. My two friends who have struggled getting pregnant find out they are both expecting this month! Please pray for them because they both have lost babies once they are pregnant! I have gotten so many wonderful ideas from your blog for my little girl who is due next month...you should see her Easter dress. I think if we lived in the same town we would be fast friends..ha! I am so happy for you and continue to pray! Harper is precious and will have such a testimony!

Laurie said...

Happy One month to my beautiful niece!

Angie said...

Happy 1 Month birthday Harper!!! I love that sign, it is so cute!!
Have a great week Kelly

Mommy Heather said...

Oh my she is getting big already. God is wonderful in the families he gives us. I am so glad that you will have one less thing to worry about this week with meals. What a blessing. Don't worry this period will pass and you will miss her needing you to hold her all the time. My youngest was that way and I miss her needing me so much now that she is almost 3!

Rebecca said...

Happy 1 month Harper!!! A friend of mine took a picture each month with a sign like that of her two kids and it's so fun to go back and look, and then to compare the two!! A great idea!! Enjoy your dinners while you've got them!

Happy One Month Birthday, Harper! She is precious, Kelly. I know you are so proud!

Cathy said...

She is just too precious...treasure her always!

Jillian, Inc said...

Scott and Kelly - I don't comment every day, but you can bet I read every single post. Harper is beautiful. She looks so much older than 1 month...I think she's an old soul in so many ways. She's got a lot of wisdom in those beautiful eyes. Happy one month to your sweet girl. And I SO AGREE about the Sunday School meals. I felt the same way. They were invaluable to me and my family when we had a newborn.

The Haymans said...

So...I know I'm your 1000th email, but seriously Harper is AMAZING!!! I know what you feel like. My baby boy went through and is still going through so much. But...seriously...did you get a chance to watch the Bachelor??? I'm so excited..and shocked!!! yay!!! Check out my blog at http://thehaymanfamily.blogspot.com

You just keep loving each minute with your little monkey and eating food brought to your door! I wonder if I can ask for a meal train for my next birthday?

We might just have to hit Crackel Barrel when I visit...:)

always, kate

Finley Family Fun said...

Your Harper is Beautiful. And in response to the high maintance part..... Woo. I have a 6 week old girl. I think it is just having a girl. My boy was nothing like my girl. Bryston is 3 and 1/2, I just thought he was high maitence. Until Meri Grace. She has this cry that she uses when it takes you longer than one minute to get her. My husband ask me if something was wrong with her. "Yeah" I said. "She's a girl!" So much fun to look forward to."

Yarnmomma said...

kelly,

I have followed baby harper and baby brayden as they have been given there miracle of life and I am so glad that we have a god that is so amazing. I know I'm just a woman that follows your blog but I tell you... it is like being a part of the blog family...

We all love you here in missouri!!

Happy 1 month!!! Man time goes so fast. In just the blink of an eye she will be 1 year. She is just so stinking cute. I am cracking up that you said she is on house arrest. Let's hope this is the only time she is. ha ha!! J/K. I also love the Tri Chi outfit. CUTE CUTE!! Glad you are home and doing good!

Happy one month!

MiracleBlanket said...

Hi! I’m Mike Gatten, inventor of Miracle Blanket, and your blog was just brought to my attention. I noticed your mention of the Miracle Blanket and I wanted to say a HUGE thank you! As a matter of fact, we can’t thank you and others enough for helping us spread the word. We really want to help other parents avoid the all-too-common problem of sleep deprivation with a newborn, but we have found that getting the word out is incredibly difficult. People just don’t believe us when we tell them it might be “this easy.” The fact is, advertising doesn’t work for a product like ours, so we rely solely on word-of-mouth from parents and professionals who have been so great as to give us a try and then tell everyone about their experience.

To show my personal gratitude I want to thank you with a free Miracle Blanket! If you don’t need it for yourself you might give it as a gift or maybe a giveaway on your blog.

Please call Susan in Marketing and she will send you a free Miracle Blanket of your choice – really! (214) 675.0539.

And again, thank you so very much!

Mike

It's a Mom Thing said...

Happy 1 Month, Harper. You are such a beautiful child with gorgeous big eyes.

I started reading your blog and praying for your baby after a few prayer requests were mentioned on some other's blogs. I've been lurking ever since but thought I'd comment tonight.

Praise God for his blessings on little Harper's health and life. She is quite a cutie.

I'm sorry she has been fussy and wanting to be held 24/7. My son was the exact same way and nine months later he is still so high maintenance. I would have lost my sanity without my baby wrap...called a Sleep Wrap. If you don't have a sling/wrap/carrier, I'm telling you, they are a life saver. And my little boy loved it and still does.

Take care of yourself and enjoy every minute with Harper.

PS- I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the goodies she has gotten. That girl won't go a minute being out of style until she's about 68.

Anneliese said...

Congratulations on 1 month Harper!!!! You are looking beautiful and full of spunk. I am enjoying all the pics of you as your mommy posts. What a miracle.
Thank you Kelly for sharing Gods message and meaning in your lives. It has inspired and moved me watching how Gods is at work.

Please know that the routines and transition to mommyhood seems to get much easier after 6 weeks to 2 months. It takes a while and B-Feeding adds more sacrifice to it, but it is so worth it all.

My name is Megan... said...

happy one month sweet harper!!! so glad your home and happy with your wonderful momma!! xoxo

KK said...

Harper is looking more like her Mother every day! Happy 1 Month Birthday!
Enjoy those great meals, as your family is so very deserving.
So very thankful little Brayden is home. More answered prayers I am so grateful for.
Blessings always,

She is a little doll. I am so glad she is as healthy as she is! I've been prayin' ever since the day she was born.

Lynn said...

Happy 1 month to sweet baby Harper--beautiful baby that has been through soooo much! Amen! Your mom "hit the nail on the head", How Great is our God!! Amazing how much has happened in a month!
I agree with Sara Madeline's mother--don't even think twice about what that person said about this becoming a "baby blog". She is yours & Scott's miracle baby and you can talk about her, show all the photos that you want--I love to read your blogs and enjoy the photos. I pray that you're able to get some needed rest! God bless you, always!!

Love in Christ,
Lynn in TX

Rachel E. said...

Thank you for being so faithful to pass on the prayer requests of others in need. It is such a privilege to be able to take part in the miracles God's doing all over the country by praying for these families.

ilovemy2bichons said...

Hi Kelly, Harper is so beautiful. I think she has your eyes. When will we see pics of Harper and Dawson? Could you pray for our little Bichon, Bijou, tomorrow? She's having dental surgery and is 16.5 years old. She's been having collapsing episodes and we are so worried about the surgery. Thank you.

Ruthie said...

Yippee! Happy One Month Sweet Harper. The first few months my son, Riley, was born, I actually cooked a lot of meals - while nursing him! That was always tricky and I always hoped no neighbors could see in the window! :) So glad you have the blessing of meals being brought over. I'd bring you one if I lived near you!

Just remember, it's okay to feel overwhelmed and wish for the days when she'll sleep through the night, etc... That doesn't mean you're a bad mom. AND - remember that all things come in seasons, and the newborn season has so many sleep-depriving challanges, but it doesn't last forever! (and it's fun to savor all the newborn cuddles you won't get once she's on the move!!!) God is with you in these "normal" moments, just like He was in those scary first few weeks. Keep on Keeping On Momma! You're doing an awesome job and your baby is so beautiful.

Ruthie

Kristin said...

Happy One Month Birthday, Sweet Harper! You look beautiful!!

Ashley McWhorter said...

Happy one month, Harper!!! YAY!!

Kelly, we don't know each other, but we are facebook "friends". I saw your name the other morning (I think around 3:30 or so) on friends that were online. I was up nursing my 2 month baby boy. I thought about saying "hello", but felt kind of weird about it. Anyway, just wanted you to know that you are not alone during those sleepless nights. :)

Have a great rest of the week! Blessings!!

Hurray!!! What an awesome milestone!!! Hapy 1st Month! :)

Kari Lynn said...

Happy 1 month! She gets prettier every time you post a picture.

I don't think you can know how much meals help after a baby until you are in that situation. My friend came over after I had Ashley (c-section) and cooked for us. It was the best gift!

Lucky in Love said...

Happy 1st month! I'm so excited for you guys.

What a beautiful plaque!

I just keep telling your Dad how GORGEOUS Harper is!! It's so hard to believe she is a MONTH old.

Our church family has brought us meals on a few occasions, and it meant SO much to me and my family.

laurensmommy said...

Happy one month, Miss Harper! Keep taking those pics at the month marks, she will change sooo fast!! Lauren was a "high maintanance" baby too....ALWAYS wanted to be held...and at 9 months she still will crawl back to mom or dad to be held...I think it's just a way to assure her that you are always there for her! God Bless your little family!!

Jenn-Neal said...

Hi Kelly,
I just wanted to recommend a book for you. It's called, "The Baby Whisperer" by Tracy Hogg. I can empathize with those first few weeks of your babies life. I know it might sound crazy to put your young baby on a schedule right now, but the sooner you read this book and start implementing her "EASY" plan the easier your life really will be and the happier your baby will be. My baby turns one this weekend, but the third week of her life was the most challenging of mine. She seemed to always be hungry and never wanted to sleep. What I realized after reading this book was that I was overfeeding her and misreading her cues for sleep. I really hope that this helps you. Best of Luck and Congrats on your baby girl. Do what you can to enjoy every minute...it goes so fast.

Thank you for pointing me in the direction of the family's blog you mentioned in this post. My son, who is now 5 years old, also suffers from Chiari malformation. I've been reading your blog since Harper was born, but have not posted a comment before. Your daughter has been in my prayers daily.

jilliebean said...

Happy one month Harper!

I still cannot believe you gave birth, natrually, to an almost 10 pound baby! That totally awesome plaque reminded me!

She is just getting cuter and sweeter all the time. The high maintenance stuff will get better. My most high maintenance baby turned out to be my easiest child.

Happy ONE Month Ms. Harper!!! Time has flown! It seems like just yesterday you were heading to the hospital! I have enjoyed following your blog while you were preggo those last couple months up until no!!! God Bless!

Stacie said...

she is beautiful.

Kelly Taylor said...

Harper gets prettier by the day! I love all the new pics each day. Her little expressions are too cute. One of my recent pics was the Valentine card pic. It would be fun to photograph her every so often with that same big flower head band just to compare and see how much she is growing. I know you're so busy and still adjusting to home life, but thanks for updating us every day. We love seeing how much has changed in this sweet family over the past month. God is SO good!

Jenna said...

Precious girl! Little girlfriend is rockin the adorableness at one month. :-) LOVE her!

Hi Kelly--it's a little late for your signups, but it will help the next person: check out this website. It's helpful for everybody to know what you like, allergies, what everybody else is bringing, etc. www.mealbaby.com

By the way, what a sweet little face. She's too sweet to ever cry, right? ha.

Happy 1 month birthday Ms. Harper! Time really flies and she's not even mine! Wow! Blessings to you, sweet child. Love the plaque, by the way!

Blessings and peace,
Linda

P.S. My daughter was colicy all day long(who says it's just at night??) and had reflux (they apparently can go hand-in-hand). I used to turn on the vacuum cleaner A LOT because it seemed to quiet her down ( or did it just drown out the crying?? KIDDING!!). I also had to hold her constantly. I barely used my stroller because I ended up holding her and pushing it everywhere with the other hand. UGH! Thank the good Lord that it ends at 3 months!!

Melissa Caroline said...

Hi Kelly! I've been following you for a bit, ever since Harper was born (btw, she is SO ADORABLE. I mean I'm sure nobody has told you that yet. :) ). Last night my nephew was born at St. Francis, and as I went up to see him I walked right by the NICU and thought of you and your sweet baby, and gave thanks that she is so healthy and doesn't have to be there anymore! Just thought I would share!

Melissa

P.S. Just realized my nephew, Dylan, was born exactly a month after Harper, and within minutes of the same time, too! Funny.

Sassy said...

Kelly I am sooo happy for you. Harper is beautiful! I'm glad all is finally well!! Also, I hope you don't mind I tagged you on my blog. :) God bless!

Happy one month birthday Harper. Hey kelly has Dawson got to come home yet? How is he handling not beingthe baby anymore? Have a great day!

wemommy said...

Hi kelly...
I just ran across your blog after seeing the "praying for Harper" icon on another blog. Being a mom myself as well as a strong christian I just had to see who Harper was. I was so intrigued I started from when she was born to todays blog. I could hardly read because of my own emotions. You see, 8 years and 6 months ago lived in little rock with my husband and was expecting our first child. I was huge but the dr. still didn't realize our baby weighed nearly 10 lbs. After 24 hours of labor at Baptist Hospital the nurses realized our baby was wrapped in his imbilical cord and was not receiving oxygen. Before we knew what was happening I was rushed to the OR and 16 minutes later he was delivered via c-section. Because of the difficult labor and loss of labor my precious son was placed in NICU for the next week. It was the most horrifying, scary time in my life but the Lord saved my precious child. And today he is a happy, healthy 8 year old. He is so full of energy I can barely keep up with him. I am so happy Harper Brown is thriving and is home...she is absolutely beautiful. Your precious family is in my prayers.

All I can say is LOOK AT GOD! LOOK AT HOW GOOD HE IS! HOW FAITHFUL! PRAISE THE LORD! PRAISE THE LORD! PRAISE THE LORD!

I'm so excited for Harper's future. Something GOOOOOOOOOOOD is going to happen in and through her life!

PS. Your Harper and My Sarah share a Birthday! My Sarah turned 5 this year and is doing great after being hospitalized when she was one month old with pnemonia so you have a lot to look forward to!
