There's no place like home!

I'm coming to you live from our home in Arkansas!!!!! Praise the LORD!
This is Harper's doctor - Dr. Gomez. He is AMAZING! Seriously - he saved her life (with a little help from the GREAT PHYSICIAN!) He was the best doctor a family could ever wish for - God sent us to him - I have no doubt!

As soon as we got the word "go" - we gave Harper a bath and fancied her up. This is her in little slip - look how she is smiling - she knows when she looks good!
Do you have any idea how much I LOVE having a girl??????
I love this picture!
Our family of three - ready to start our new life together!
Harper and her Nonny
My mam-ma (who Harper's middle name is named after) made me this cape and I came home from the hospital in it and we put Harper in it today. It was special to have something my mam-ma had made to pass on to my sweet girl.
Harper is saying "step on it" ...... "I'm ready to see my room"
(all you Texas girls quit getting excited - Harper IS NOT doing the hook em horns sign - although it looks a lot like it - we'll have to have a heart to heart talk). ha!

We got home tonight around 6 and I can't tell you how wonderful it feels to be home. I can't wait until tomorrow when I can get up and stay in my pj's and not worry about nurses and doctors coming in and out of our room at all hours of the day. I feel like I can finally relax. We are ready to start our new life.
GOD IS GOOD!

Congratulations! This is such wonderful news!

I know being from Arkansas, (and go HOGS and all) that pointing this out might not be very popular, but that does look like a HOOK EM' HORNS sign she's throwing up there with her left hand! LOL

Brianne said...

PRAISE GOD!! I am so glad that ya'll are home! I was in the hospital for a week, and it drove me insane! I can't imagine being there for 21 days! I have been praying like crazy for Harper, and am so glad to see that God has answered our prayers. And, I also read that there may be a problem with her brain. Look at what God just did to your girl.... He has that under control, too!! I will keep praying, and pray that if there is an issue, that He will heal Harper again. But, I bet everything will be fine and dandy when she is checked out in a few months! Once again I'm so glad you're home... my heart overflows with joy for you! :o) Your girl is precious beyond words!!

Elyse Shirley said...

So happy to hear that you and the family are home! It is wonderful to bring your baby home for the first time. I hope you two have a wonderful day tomorrow just relaxing.
I love the socks. My mom bought my first daughter a pair similar to the ones Harper is wearing and now my second daughter is wearing them. They are my favorite!

My daughter will be induced on Feb 23 at UAB. We know there is a problem with the baby's heart, just don't know how bad. We have felt prayers all around already, I would appreciate you remembering us too. I am expecting a miracle but whatever the Lord does, will be his will. Again, Welcome Home!!! Debbie

Traci@TotalMomsense said...

Oh Kelly I am so happy for you all. What a joy tomorrow will be- first day at home. I have been following the blog and praying since the day Harper was born (thanks to Big Mama). I am so amazed at how many times God has used a baby to heal lives. I know what a blessing she must be to you - but she's been a blessing here as well. My 8-year old daughter has been on her knees and asking about little Harper almost daily. She has been the subject of some tender moments at our home as well. Thank you for sharing all that you have. Enjoy your day tomorrow and love on that family of yours!

B said...

I couldn't be happier that you're home!!!

In His Army said...

Oh sweet Kelly! She just looks adorable adn I am so thankful that you guys are settled in back at home! I laughed OUT LOUD about Harper saying "Step on it...I;m ready to see my room"...so funny! Gode Bless and take care. We want to see you guys soon!

Jill said...

So so so so so happy for you guys!!! I hope you all get lots of rest at home together!!!

Kelly,

So glad to hear you're home!!! Harper is such a miracle. I've been blog stalking for quite some time and was so devastated when I read about Harper's birth.

But, oh how God is good.

In the last picture where Harper is saying "step on it" if you look at her left hand it looks like she's saying "ROCK ON!"

LOVE IT!

Can't wait to watch this little princess grow!!

PB&J (peace, blessings and joy)

Allison H. said...

You are so blessed to have such a beautiful baby girl! I am jealous! I love my 3 boys, but to have a girl to dress up with pretty bows and lavish dresses, oh goodness, we would so be in the poor house! God definitely knows what he is doing! LOL
Life with Harper at home will be wonderful. Follow your mommy instincts, and I'm sure you will be just fine.

Sue said...

I am SO HAPPY for you....this is a miracle that we have witnessed. GOD IS SO GOOD!! Harper is beautiful!!!!!!

Anniebanannie said...

I have been following this incredible journey of yours and to open your blog and read "There's no place like home" just gives me a sure sense of peace. Praise God! Harper is such a total doll and she's one lucky baby girl to be blessed with such wonderful parents.

I'm so happy for you all. I know walking into your home, the freshness, the smell, WITH your new family of three...nothing could be better.

I can't wait to continue reading. You are an amazing person...truly inspirational.

Elle's Mom said...

I have been following your blog since the time little Harper was born and I cannot tell you how happy I am that she is home. I am just so thankful!

I saw a post on another blog about another beautiful little girl that REALLY needs everyone prayers. Her name is Cora and my heart aches for her. http://themcclenahans.blogspot.com/

Perhaps everyone that prayed so hard for Harper can also pray for this sweet girl.

Again, I am so happy for you!!!

Alaine said...

I'm so happy for you. We take so much for granted when we have healthy newborns. Have a beautiful life with your precious baby girl and cherish every moment. I know from experience that it really does go fast - next thing you know she'll be asking for the keys to the car. eek.

Congratulations and God bless your family.

my life as a wife said...

I found your blog right when Harper was born and have been following since. I have prayed for your little girl everyday! I'm so glad you get to have her home with you. Its amazes me what the power of a prayer can do!

and let the church say AMEN!!!!!

Aunt Jenn Creates said...

Praise God! So gald you are home! She is such a doll.

Rebecca Jo said...

That is hilarious - she does look like she's doing the Texas sign...

but how beautiful is she... & she looks so relaxed all dressed up.. she's already a beauty queen.

The cape is just precious to have her wrapped in... family treasures are wonderful.

May God continue to bless you as you all still continue to touch so many!

Garrett Family said...

That is wonderful and the Texas Longhorn was too funny - I totally thought that before I saw your comment about it. I grew up in Neosho, MO (outside of Joplin) so I know what being a Hog fan is - and now I live in Texas and I'm married to a huge Texas Longhorn fan - so my girls all know the longhorn sign!! They started at an early age too! :) So excited for you guys!

I completely agree. God is good.
Psalm 52: 8b I trust in the steadfast love of God forever and ever.
9 I will thank you forever,
because you have done it.
I will wait for your name, for it is good,
in the presence of the godly.

I hope you stay in your PJs all weekend! I'm loving the bows you put in Harper's hair. It reminds me of the huge bows I put in my daughter's hair. My motto was: The bigger the better! ha... Harper is a lucky little lady and I know you will be a great mother!

I'll continue watching for updates on your little princess and life in your house!
