Happy Birthday Daddy

Today is Scott's birthday!!!
Dawson. Harper, and I love you very much!

I gave Scott his gift yesterday because I can't keep surprises. Every day he flips the channels and sighs and says "Man I wish I had the NFL channel." That was easy. Now every day can be like a fall weekend to him!

Since it's Scott's birthday - I thought I would share you with you the first moment he FINALLY got to hold his daughter after 12 days! Ignore our babbling ................. It's always great when you hold your child for the first time........but after waiting almost 2 weeks.......it's unbelievable. I stayed up late last night looking at video we took in the hospital. When she opened her eyes at 10 days and we finally really SAW our daughter - it was something I'll never forget. I cried all over again at the sweetest gift we've been given.
(I think I fixed the video so it's not private anymore - but let me know if you still can't see it)

Cindy said...

Happy Birthday to your husband. What a sweet, sweet video!

kemeche said...

Kelly, that was precious. There is a song by John Mayer called Daughters. It melted my heart the first time I heard it, being a daughter and having a daughter. I think you and Scott would enjoy it. Hope you guys have a Blessed Day!

Molly said...

She's just beautiful. I can't imagine having to wait so many days to hold your own baby. We had to wait an hour while our baby went to the NICU and I was hysterical during that hour. Of course, I didn't know if my baby had lived or died and no one would tell me so it was very very scary. But to have to wait that long? Kudos to you for holding it together so well!

Happy birthday to your husband!

Emily said...

That is the sweetest thing ever! How sweet! I love it! Praise God!

Susan said...

Hello Kelly! This is the first time I have ever written on your blog. I was on maternity leave the same time you were. Your daughter is 4 days older than my son. I started reading your blog when I was at home with my son. We would pray for Harper and your family everyday. I'm so glad that she is healthy and doing great!! You have such a wonderful family. That video brought tears to my eyes. Happy Birthday to your husband! I hope yall have a wonderful day!! Oh and I thanks for sharing your recipes too! :)

Ashley said...

Happy Birthday Scott! What a precious moment between a father and daughter. Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

Angela said...

Happy Birthday to the Daddy! The video was so sweet! I can't wait for my hubby to hold our little girl for the first time! Any day now! When I got pregnant after losing our boy last year I thought it was so perfect that our baby was due around my hubby's b-day. Well, guess what...if she does not come by next tues they are inducing on Jarred's 30th birthday. I thought how cool, God even cares about the little details. Jarred wants nothing more than to share his special day with his new best girl. Please pray for us....a healthy baby and healthy mom!

King J's Queen said...

What a sweet baby! My goodness, Harper has changed so much since then.

Happy Birthday, Scott!

Kari said...

Happy Birthday Scott!

I cannot imagine what you guys went through. And, I cannot imagine having to wait 10 days before you got to hold your baby. What that must have been like for you guys, I will never fully understand. But, praise be to God that Harper is well, and home..and you can hold her all you want!
I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Chari said...

That video makes ME cry! So sweet!

I love Harper's bare feet picture today!

2SetsOfTwins4Me said...

smcvicker said...

I pulled your blog up at work and I don't have sound on my computer but I still watched the video and was amazed at how Harper looked at her daddy the whole time. It was obvious to me that she knew his voice. How precious! Happy Birthday, Scott!

The Smith's said...

Hey! I tagged you for a word game ;)

Crystal said...

Happy Birthday to your honey! Oh how mine would love the NFL network. ha.

That video brought tears to my eyes. Bentley is sitting in my lap and her little eyes were glued to the screen. She got upset when it was over. Too too cute!!

Suzette said...

Whew, that was a tear jerker! What a special moment! I can't wait to meet my girl! What an incredible blessing to hold your sweet girl! And to see the man you love all google eyes over his daughter! So sweet! Happy Bday to Scott! *Congrats on staying home with Harper! What a blessing!

That video was so sweet! Happy birthday to Scott!

Shannon C said...

What a beautiful moment! You can't help but cry when you see the love! I'm pretty sure Harper is in love with her Daddy! My 2 year old daughter watched the video with me. Now, she keeps say, "Look at baby!" So, we will have to watch it a few more times.

Heather said...

How sweet! Just precious! And Happy Birthday to Scott!

jlhonse said...

Very very sweet!!!!

kim_brough said...

I love that she just stared him down!

PS: How come the fat rolls on my legs aren't quite as cute???????

The Simmons Family said...

The video is PRECIOUS!! Isn't it aweful to wait to hold your baby?? Or having to ASK if it's okay? I think that was the hardest part of Owen needing open heart surgery. WAITING.

Thanks for sharing!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

Channe said...

Such sweetness...
thanks for sharing!

Kevin and Cami said...

This is the first time I have commented. I have been stalking since right before you had sweet Harper. I just had to comment today. The video reminded me of the first time my baby girls daddy was able to hold her for the first time. It almost brought tears to my eyes. Harper is just so precious.

Cami

Michelle said...

Happy Birthday Scott!
Oh Kelly, you may have gotten wife of the year with the gift of the NFL channel! A guy's dream; football on tv, 24/7!

Lynn said...

Happy Birthday to Scott!! Thank ya'll for sharing a beautiful moment with so many! =) Great present from you to him, Kelly!

Love the outfit and those sweet "piggies" showing! :-)

God bless & have a great birthday to Scott!

Rachel www.jackandcoledesigns.com said...

Could anything be sweet?? I think not. Happy Birthday to Scott!

I wish I could meet you one day!

Blessings to you guys!

Can I have an address where I could mail something to Harper? What size is she in now?

Rachel www.jackandcoledesigns.com said...

I meant, could anything be sweeter!

James' Full House said...

Oh, how precious is that first moment. She is beautiful.
I have been following her and praying for her for months now. God is so GOOD! It has been a blessing to watch her grow and learn from you. Your faith and trust is admireable.
Great Bday gift! I may have to borrow that idea.

Brandi (Alabama)

Allisyn said...

Thank you for sharing that very precious moment between Harper and her Daddy.

Finley Family Fun said...

How sweet! She was probably thinking "so that's the voice I've been hearing for 9 months". I can't believe she was grinning. So precious. Happy Birthday to your husband.

avbernat said...

Happy Happy Birthday Scott!

You've got the ultimate wife there! I know it would be a big snow storm in Los Angeles before I got the soccer channel for my hubby (he's European).

Kelly, I sobbed watching this clip. There's definitely something amazing about that daddy/daughter relatioship.

You are so blessed to have them in your life.

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

Happy Birthday to Scott! What a great present you got him.

Lil Miss K's Mommy said...

video works for me! OMG that is so sweet!!!! I could just eat her and her rolls up. I love how she just looks around and then stares at her Daddy. I could just stare at my little girl and her daddy all day. It's so cute! I also love Harper's bow. How in the world do you get it to stay? What is your secret?
I'm so glad she's well now. What a little blessing they are.

Lisa (from dallas)

Nicole M Wood said...

Happy Birthday Scott!!!

Love the leggings!

ScrappinAway said...

Kelly, each time I hear your voice on video, it makes me stop...I think for just a split second that it is mine. I guess it is us both being southern gals, the accent sounds the same over video, but it is pretty crazy. I need put some video on our blog so you can hear and let me know what you think! Pam

Jennifer said...

Cute video~ You can see how Harper has changed already.

Happy Birthday Scott!

Linda said...

Happy Birthday to your sweet husband. Loved the video of him holding Harper for the first time. Hope you are continuing to feel better.
Blessings,
Linda

Rebekah said...

Happy Birthday to your Hubby!! Loved the video.. so sweet!!

PamperingBeki said...

Lots of things to say -

First, I don't think I've ever posted here before but I've had you in my favorites for a while.

Second, that baby girl of yours is just beautiful!

Third, you LOOK like an Arkansas girl! Is that strange? ;-) I mean it in the best way. I'm from Missouri and have family in Arkansas and always thought the Arkie girls had a certain look about them.

Fourth, regarding your photos on the wall below, don't you just LOVE those $3 frames from the WalMarts?! I love those. The black just ties everything together beautifully.

And finally, I love Matilda Jane clothing. I've been a fan of hers for years, since she was selling on ebay!

Jacquie said...

I know you won't believe this, but that was SUCH an emotional video for me to watch! Her connection with her Daddy as such a new baby was just so moving!!! She is truly precious... I just can't say it enough. (Although I hear it quite often here at work!!)

Rachel said...

What a happy daddy and i must say...I can not get over the accents you guys have. LOL

How precious. It's so cute. Happy Birthday to Scott.

Ashley said...

Oh my...that might be the sweetest thing I have seen in a while! Precious! :)

redsoxmom said...

Kelly,
Thanks for sharing with us! How precious--and what a great moment that was! I can't believe how long she stared at your hubby! It probably seems like ages ago now, though. The time just flies by, doesn't it?

Happy Birthday to Scott!! Guess what? It's my birthday, too!! I haven't met very many people with the same birthday, so I'm excited that there's someone else out there who shares my birthday. Yea!! Hope it's a great one!

Blessings,
Linda

Ohtobebeautiful said...

Happy Birthday Scott! Hope it is a good one :) I love all the pictures you take with her. That face is priceless! That is a great idea for a birthday gift. We dont have tv, but if we did then I would definitely get that for my hubby!

The video is so precious. I will never forget when I saw my hubby hold our daughter for the first time. You could just see him melt. It is such a wonderful thing.

Have a blessed day!

Meredith said...

Kelly, that video is such a sweet precious video! I absolutely love that! What a precious moment to capture! Just adorable! Happy Birthday to Scott! Russell saw him at Rockfish today! :)

Jenny said...

Happy Birthday to your husband!

Harper is seriously one of the most gorgeous babies I've ever seen. Even at 12 days old, she was so alert and happy!

Leigh Ann said...

That is SOOOOO sweet! Happy Birthday, Scott!!!

BTW, the Kelly Jean video is too funny!

Amy Starr said...

It's my birthday too - my 33rd! Happy birthday, Scott!

Amanda said...

Harper's outfit today is outrageously cute. I was inspired by her Baby Legs yesterday to go try Annabeth's on her. They didn't fit yet. I'm so bummed because I bet it will be hot before they do! The video is precious. It looked like she smiled for a sec.

Sonya said...

Happy Birthday Scott!!

Dana said...

That's funny- the NFL channel would be my worst nightmare. I hate football but watching you enjoy it makes me want to like it! Thankfully we have turned off the tv again for the time being, which always brings more peace into our family and more time to spend together!

Donna said...

Happy birthday Scott!!! What a blessed man you are, but I'm sure you know that. The video is beyond precious. Harper was really studying her Daddy.So alert after all she had been through. And I don't know what people are talking about with your "accent"..sounds normal to me (Macon, GA).LOL. Keep the videos coming. Everyone is surely enjoying them.
Keeping you in my heart in GA.

First of all- Harper is beautiful!!! And the video is adorable!!

I love your blog and read it all the time! Thanks for the fun reading!

Okay- I just checked out your recipe blog!- YUM!

How in the world do you eat all that delicious food and stay so cute with a great figure??

Jase, Jamie and Harlon said...

The video is precious, made me cry. First, are those Baby Legs? Second, I can tell you are a very hands on mom. My boy was born in December 7th, close to Harper and we just started Kindermusik classes today. Wonderful! I can't say enough about it. Opens Harlon's eyes to a who new world. When Harper is able check out a free class somewhere. www.kindermusik.com

I loved your video! Harper was so sweet as she just gazed at her daddy.
My husband's birthday is today as well and I know he is thrilled to be a dad (and a great dad at that) to our two wonderful girls.
Wish him all the best from us!

Lil' K said...

I have been reading your blog since a friend introduced it to me when Harper was born. I can't wait to read it everyday. AND, today is my birthday, so you gave me a great gift by posting this video. I love it, especially since my baby boy is 5 months old and melts my heart everyday. His daddy is a proud one too!

Thank you again - Happy birthday to your hubby!!

nanny said...

Happy Birthday Daddy. What a sweet video, she looks so much older than 10 days.

Kristen said...

That is just sweet! Happy Birthday to your hubby and now I know why she had a hard time sleeping when you first brought her home! All that noise in the NICU! How could anyone really rest in there?

joan said...

Happy Birthday Harper's daddy! Sweet video!

Lori said...

Hey Girl. I loved the video... Brought tears to my eyes. That will be neat for Harper to watch when she's older.

I love the tights she's wearing in the first picture. SO cute. I only have boys... Makes me kinda jealous at all her cute clothes.

God Bless. Hope Scott enjoys his day.

Melanie said...

She has to be the most beautiful baby girl I've ever seen!!! Of course, you know this already. You are her very proud Mama!

We, Moms, can be a bit biased. I type all this with a great big wink and a smile. Why? I have the 3 most handsome boys I've ever seen. No, really I do!

So glad you guys are doing well.

The video is so sweet. What a fantastic memory to have and share with the rest of us. Your accent, so beautiful. Makes me want to pack my bags and move back to Kentucky right now. Heavens I love the south!

Assuming Scott had a fantastic day!
Stopping by to let you know I'm praying!
1 Timothy 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

How precious! What an amazing thing -- I felt cheated out of the immediate-after-birth holding of my son because I had a c-section, but I did not have to wait twelve days, so I shouldn't be complaining.

She is a beautiful girl!

What a precious site to see her studying her daddy's face so intently. She's absolutely beautiful!!

Hey there. I know you don't know me but I have been following your blog since Harper was born. I have loved watching Harper grow stronger every day and have prayed for y'all many times. I have meant to comment so many times, but just never got to it. I love reading your blog all the time. Y'all have been such an inspiration to so many people. I wanted to comment today cuz yesterday was my hubbie's birthday too. Small world. We have a blog too but not nearly as high tech as yours. haha. It's www.dtkbrooks@blogspot.com. I loved the video of your husband holding him for the first time. I remember how it is to see your husband hold your little girl for the first time. We have a 16 month old. What an amazing ride you have ahead. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have. :) Oh, by the way.... sorry.... My name is Tiffany and we live in MS. Hope you have a blessed day.

You have the cutest voice Kelly. Here in CA we don't hear many Southern accents. What a smart girl you have, looking around and so alert at such a young age.

Happy (belated) birthday to Scott!

Thank you for sharing that special moment with us. It was totally precious how Harper could not take her eyes off of him. She was finally matching his voice to his face! So sweet!

Happy Belated Birthday to Scott!

Harper is so precious, you are so blessed to have such a beautiful angel!

I have been following your site for some time know, and I have to ask, how do you get those absolutely adorable head peices for Harper??

Do you make them yourself or are they available anywhere? I am just Dying to know so that all of the beautiful little girls I know can have the cutest bows and hats ever that Harper wears! Would really appreciate it!!
