I got to go to church yesterday and it was WONDERFUL!!! Scott kept Harper and she slept the whole time - I even went to Sunday School. Harper had a great day yesterday! She was so happy and slept a LOT! She has only gotten up once the past two nights and last night I thought she was going to sleep the whole night. I jumped up like a rocket when I woke up and realized it was almost 3:30 and she had been asleep since 9:30!!!
Isn't she cute???
She got this precious shirt from this etsy seller who made it for her! LOVE, LOVE!
Abbie wanted to make Harper some bows and she asked me what colors I would like. I told her I didn't have any black or green so she made these - aren't they cute?? Love the black feathers!!!
The Fletcher family sent me a package full of goodies that were SOOO precious including the cutest drawing their 8 year old daughter drew of Harper. I'm saving it for her. These burp cloths were TOOOO cute!
Haley and Tammy Dale in VA sent me some very cute bows and this outfit. They knew I would be so proud because they bought it at Wal-Mart and then had her name put on it!! You are SO right - that is genius!! :-) Right up my alley!
Last night I went to Wal-Mart and when I got home, Scott said he DVR'd something he wanted me to watch. It was Extreme Home Makeover. I rarely watch that show because it makes me cry too hard. Scott was tearing up and told me it was about a family in TX who had their home flooded but the special thing about them was their youngest son had been in the NICU and the mom who is a photographer now goes and takes pictures of the babies in the NICU for the families for free. They had families on whose babies had died saying what a precious gift that was. You can watch the episode here - grab some kleenex first.
And then pray for the family of Gracie. She was born sick, just had a heart transplant and has been on ECMO and is not going to live. My heart breaks for them. As I look at pictures of her on ECMO and realize how close we were..........my eyes flooded with tears. I don't understand why our baby gets to live and others don't. Even when so many people pray........sometimes the answer is different than what is asked. I don't know the reason. But I still believe in praying and asking God for miracles. It's not our job to understand "why".....faith is about trusting God no matter what.
