This is me at 4 weeks.
Here is Harper at almost 8 weeks wearing the same dress - do you think she looks like me?
I thought she did at first - but now I think she looks more like her daddy
Harper wants to do a shout out to Uncle Chris who turns 33 today!!!
I also have to say Happy Birthday to my Aunt Kathy and good friend Micaela.
(and Happy B-day to one of my best friends Kandi yesterday)
March 12th is a big day! :-)

Okay - so who is your pick for American Idol?
My 4 favorite are Danny (he's my #1), Kris (go Arkansas - he ties for #1), Michael, and Adam.

And I am afraid I got sucked into something I swore I never would - Dancing with the Stars. I admit it - I watched it and I liked it. There are a lot of interesting people this time. I think I just jumped on the band wagon - do you watch???

Feel free to keep linking on the recession fashion post below - it's been fun reading your posts!

P.S. Pray for this family - they are pregnant with sextuplets and lost one yesterday at 20 weeks and now a 2nd baby is attempting to deliver.

I love Danny & Adam too! I had to watch DWTS to see Melissa from The Bachelor. She did great!

Mrs. Stilettos said...

Hi Kelly! I think Harper is a great mix of the both of you! I love that Harper is wearing the same dress that you did!! That is so sweet!!

I'll admit...I love it too. I don't get to watch dancing with the stars all the time but it can be addictive!

Now that things have settled down a little in your world I am happy to tell you that our prayers were answered! We are having a little girl in September!!

Midwest Mommy said...

Wow, she does look like you!

Jaime said...

She looks like you but has her daddy's eyes! :)

Welcome to the Dancing obsession. It is really the only show I watch. I try to catch 24, if I have time (life with a 13 month old!).

brandi said...

I think she looks just like you Kelly! BEAUTIFUL!

Rebecca Jo said...

Oh my goodness.. I think she looks just like you!!! The shape of your heads are even the same!!!

And how do you still have that dress... that's pretty cool right there!

Kristina said...

Oh Kelly! I think she looks like you!! I loved doing this when my son was born, but we didn't need to....he looks like his daddy's clone =)

Little Dude's Mama said...

I love that you dressed Harper in your vintage dress. I did that too, with my daughter, and it was one of the best things about having a girl!

Suzie said...

Oh my Harper is just so beautiful! She has your eyes for sure! but i think he looks like both of you.
That is so sweet that your momma kept your dress for you and your baby girl. I would love to do that one day when God blesses me with a baby.

I don't watch neither of the shows but i heard a lot about this past weeks Dancing with the stars, maybe i'll start watching :).
I hope your having a good Thursday!
Hey hows the weather in AR? here in Texas it was like 85 on Tuesday, 45 yesterday and 36 today with rain!!! Oh how I love Texas weather!.

Joy said...

I think she favors her Mama! What a sweetie!

Crystal said...

Oh that is so sweet. I think she looks A LOT like you!

Stacie said...

i think harper looks like both of you! who knows who she will look like in a month?! it is so fun b/c they can change so much.

i have not joined the DWTS band wagon, but i am an american idol fan. i love danny this year, and lil rounds. kris isn't too bad, and adam is good, but he knows he is, so i don't want him to win. (is that mean?) i can't wait to see how it plays out!

Kelly Taylor said...

I think she looks like you also. I LOVE reality tv, but I've just never been "taken" by DWTS. I watched it just so I could see Melissa, but it just didn't entertain me quite like the others. As for American Idol, I'm still watching, but was pulling for Jasmine. She goes to the School of Arts here in my hometown. She did really well and I was sad to see her go. I haven't picked a new favorite yet!

Lauren Kelly said...

Kelly- I'll be honest, I think she's a good mixture of you both. What CUTE pictures!!!!

I'm so bummed (but happy that I'm doing it), I gave up TV for lent and I've been missing all the shows :o( Have a great day, my friend!!!!

Hope your brother has an awesome birthday and your Aunt Kathy!!! :o)

Michele said...

I think Harper resembles both of you, but from these pictures she looks more like you! I TOTALLY watch DWTS and love it! You will too if you stick with it!!! :)

Staci said...

I really think it's all you, mama! I have no doubt there is some of her daddy in there, but that's a little Kelly right now!

She is a beauty!

Crystal said...

Hey Kelly! Harper is so beautiful! I think she definitely has your nose, mouth and face shape but your husbands eyes. Great mix of the both of you. It makes me so happy to see your updates and see just how happy and healthy Harper is. Take care!

Tamara Ann said...

I see both of you in Miss Harper, but I would still say she favors you more!

As far as Idol goes, I am so pulling for Danny! I just love him!

And DWTS is my ultimate reality television weakness. LOVE IT!! I have to admit I'm secretly pulling for Steve Wozniak (gotta love the underdog!).

Kaylan said...

I definitely think she looks like you! She does have some of Daddy, but I think she takes more after you. I love the outfit sharing :) SO Sweet!!

Rob and Amy said...

I toallllly think she looks just like you!!! She is so precious!!!!

Kristine said...

I actually think she looks JUST LIKE YOU!!! :) Sorry Dada..although he should be HAPPY about that! :)

Ace said...

Well, I DID watch DWTS, but it looks like they moved it to Tuesdays. It now interferes with The Biggest Loser and AI so I have to dump it this season. I'm hoping it gets moved back to Mondays!

Angela said...

I think she looks like you for sure! What a cutie!

Michelle said...

I've always thought Harper looks like you, but in these pictures, I think she favors Scott.
AI-I actually like them all, which is weird becasue usually I only have a couple I like. Danny though is my FAVE!
DWTS-I always love it. This season has ALL good people in it!

Hailey said...

I think Miss. Harper looks just like you!

LauraBeth said...

Harper is a great mix of the both of you! And my current AI favorites are Lil Rounds for the girls and Danny Gokey for the guys. Haven't gotten into DWTS this year, but will give it a shot since it comes so highly recommended! Be blessed today!

T Sharee said...

I think Harper looks just like you! Sorry Scott! lol It's great that your mom kept your dress!

Alison said...

I think Harper looks more like you! Its so cute to compare baby pictures! :)

Alicia said...

I really thinks she looks like you! She is so cute!

I love Danny! I too just got on the band wagon with DWTS! I tuned in the other night because there wasnt anything on and man I got sucked right in!

Misty said...

I think she's a perfect mix of the both of you! :o)

When my Kiddo was born (9 years ago next week...WOW! :o) everyone talked about how much he looked like hs daddy...my mother-in-law even told me once that she didn't really see me in him at all...then she saw MY baby pictures! She was so amazed! Now he's older and he really does look like his daddy...but I don't care the brown eyes he's got that everyone comments about? - YEP! MY brown eyes! :o)

writing4612 said...

I think she looks like her daddy, but she has your eyes. At least that's what I can tell from these pics.

I don't watch DWTS, but I do love Ammerican Idol. I like Danny and a few others, so we'll see.

Beth said...

I have been a Danny fan since the tryouts...but also am a fan of Adam!

I think Harper is a combo-kid...but resembles you the most! Its neat to watch how they change who they look like as they get older!

http://bruceandbeth.blogspot.com

writing4612 said...

I have to admit she looks just like Scott in some of the previous pics you've posted of her.

Jennifer said...

I think Harper is the perfect combination of you and Scott. I can see so much of you both in her precious little face! How cool that you had a dress of your own for her to wear too!

I announced today what I'm having - we're so excited!! (o:

Mel said...

she's got her mamma's eyes. :)

The Simmons Family said...

Harper definetly looks like her momma!

Ok... DANNY is my #1 pick!! He stole my heart back in the first auditions when he talked about losing his wife to a severe heart defect.. similar to little Owens.

What a wonderful guy. If I wasn't married... I tell you what!

I also got hooked on dancing with the stars. Seriously love Melissa from the bachlor.. I think she's got a shot! Jason's loss.

Britni and Justin said...

I think she looks like you!!

Alexandra's Mommy said...

ha ha that is so cute, the same dress!! I think she looks like both of you to be honest!

My favorite is Adam and Danny for American Idol! I am not a big fan of any of the girls really!!

LisaShaw said...

A beautiful blend of both of you.

Chari said...

How sweet she's wearing your dress!She really looks like both of you, but I'd probably say she looks just a little more like you.

Jenn Prather said...

She is SUCH A good combination of the both of you....more like you with her daddys eyes!!! This will all change constantly! HA

Sweet Sweet girl!

Team Eliza said...

Hi Kelly-
I think Harper has your smile. I love that you have pictures of you and Harper wearing the same outfit . . . very sweet.

I am a very loyal DWTS watcher. In the beginning I was embarassed to admit that I watched it. . . but those days are long gone. Do you have any favorites? I think Melissa is my favorite.

Hope you and Harper have a great day.

-Jennifer

Russ, Anna and Pepper said...

I think she is a GREAT combo of the two of you, just like all beautiful children!!!!! Yes, our house is sucked into Dancing and Idol, just cannot help it. Nothing like fun, innocent television to watch as a fam

Jennifer said...

I think she is a combination of the two of you! She really looks like you with Scott's eyes. It's so funny how much baby change, so in a week or two she may look different! She is beautiful whoever she looks like!

I do love a little DWTS!

Robert said...

Kelly--I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for your blog. I have been reading your blog since Harper got sick and had the priveledge of being on my knees for your daughter. I have been struck at how much our stories are alike-with the exception that we don't have a baby yet. After three years of trying, I am just about ready to give up. God has used your blog to give me hope. I love coming here and seeing how well Harper is doing-whom I think she looks like her daddy. On a side note, someone once told me that babies are born looking like their daddy's so that the dad will bond with the baby better. Don't know if true, but thought it was worth passing on. It feels funny writing something so personal to someone I don't even know (and something that everyone else can read), but I have felt the need to tell you how much God has used you in my life.

Keep on blogging!

Thank you,
Erin Allen

P.S.--I love Dancing with the Stars!

Love Being a Nonny said...

She looks EXACTLY like YOU except for the eyes....she has her daddy's eyes!!

I swore I would not watch American Idol this season...but, I too got sucked in two weeks ago!!! They know what they are doing!!!

Drew and Kelsie said...

Today is my birthday too... and my Grandpa's!! Happy Birthday to your family!! :)

Tara said...

I've been thinking the whole time Harper looks like Scott but I will say from these pictures, I definitely see you. I am sooo bad at this stuff though. My husband and I can't even tell who our son looks like. Most people say he looks like his daddy but some say me. I have no clue but it would be nice if he really did look like me since I carried him for 9 months!!

Amy's Adventures said...

I think she looks more like you but with his eyes. I watched DWTS as well but like American Idol the best. Go Danny!

Jenn said...

I think she looks like you.

I predict that Danny will win the whole thing - he is just awesome! Dancing with the Stars is the worst addiction ever - I can't stop watching it!

Heather said...

I think, for what it's worth, that Harper looks way more like you!!! For sure, all the features are there and even the shape of her little head was like yours! That is so sweet that you have her in your baby dress!!

Yes, i love dancing with the stars, I can't sing worth a lick so I really don't watch AMerican Idol, the ones I think are good the judges say they are terrible! HA! Thanks for sharing those pics!!

Christa said...

Kelly, that is such a cute picture of Harper wearing the dress you wore when you were little! I think she def has your knows and Scott's eyes! Shes a cutie!! :)

Amanda said...

I think she looks just like you! She is just too cute!
I watched the first few seasons of DWTS, but it seemed like they were desperate for stars on the last couple of seasons. I am planning on watching it again whenever I get back into the house.

Cary Hairbows said...

Harper is the most beautiful baby! I do think she looks like your hubby (and I have said is all along). She is sweet! I love her in your dress. :o)

Yesterday after your recession fashion post, I went online and I bought myself a few of those cocktail rings you linked yesterday (they were a steal!). Now all I need is an occasion in which to wear them. I guess I can wear a bunch while doing my bows. Ha! ;) I also went to Old Navy and found some cute dresses. Thanks for the tip to help "de-frumpify" myself. It feels great. Thank you, Kelly. HUGS!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Shannon

P.S. Happy birthday to the proud uncle!

Krystal said...

I think she looks like you in these baby pictures. But she does have Scott's eyes!

I like Alexis Grace, but wished she wouldn't be so "naughty". We also like Danny. And Megan has a cute personality and unique voice.

I LOVE DWTS. I thought Melissa did a great job the other night!

We also LOVE Survivor! If I could be on a reality TV show this would be it!

Have a great day!

Cathy Meister Melton said...

She is you! I have to go for the Memphis girls...we'll see!

3girlsmom said...

Um, nope. She pretty much looks just like you.

Beav's Wife said...

I think she looks exactly like YOU! And, get this-I have almost the exact same dress but where your's is pink check, mine is yellow! I haven't had a girl to try it on yet! Hahaha!

Michelle said...

I think that little cutie pie looks like her mommy! It's so neat you have the same dress to put her in.

I've been sucked into both Dancing and American Idol. I like Danny - he's my favorite also... he's been through a lot in his life. I also like Michael (the working class guy) and Scott. I think a guy is definitely going to win it this year! As far as DWTS, I'm cheering for Melissa!

Tara G. said...

She's a beautiful blend of the two of you.

I went to Marshall's the other night after the kids were put to bed and tried on a lot of cute things...they just didn't look cute on me! So I am about to place an order (I need a cute Easter dress) that would not fit in your last post- doing my part to help the greater good for our nation's economy. Everyone has great suggestions!

midnight macaroons said...

She looks like you both but also has a her own style. She's gorgeous and already fashionable. Loving the outfits and headbands. Harper got it going on.

I'm going to root for Kris on American Idol.

Watts Family said...

I think Harper favors you a little more than Scott. She just gets cuter everyday! I am bummed I missed DWTS...I wanted to see Melissa tear it up on the dance floor. She is a Texan and represents us well! Have a great day!

Many Blessings,

Amanda

Brittany said...

I'm definitely seeing Harper looking more like you!

And Dancing with the Stars is addicting! I love Julianne and I think her and her man are so cute together! They are my #1 pick!

I always skip the auditions on A.I. (I don't like to get invested until there's a chance the people I like will be there for a while). I'm trying to decide if I'm going to watch this year. After the bachelor I'm not sure I can handle any more disappointment! haha!

k and c's mom said...

Harper is just a little cutie!
So smart to save that dress!
(Danny for Idol.)

Angela said...

Neat that you have that dress! I think she looks like you BUT she has her Daddy's eyes ~ so she is a mix! You will change your mind a million times over as she grows. I like Danny!

Annie said...

Oh, I think Harper looks more like you! Also, when I saw the first picture, I thought, "ahhh, that would have been a sweet dress to save" THEN the next pic was Harper wearing the dress! Love it! She's a doll...

Katie said...

OH MY STARS AND BARS! Harper looks EXACTLY like you did as a baby. Although I can see her Daddy in her, too. But WOW! Y'all look just alike...I think it's the facial expression, too. So fun! I'd been wanting to see side by sides of Harper and Momma & Daddy! I have a lot of my old outfits and dresses that Momma saved, and I love looking at old pictures of me in them and Amelia in them. Harper looks like she is sitting on a big pink marshmallow. :o)

*~! megs !~* said...

I think she looks like such the perfect mix of both of you guys! And how cute that she's in the same dress as you!!

I like Danny and Kris a lot. I also like Lil and Alexis. I'm torn!!

I just started watching Dancing this year. I swore I never would but I got sucked in because of Shawn Johnson! Oh well!!

King J's Queen said...

Neither of you can deny her (not that you'd want to!).

She's got your cheeks and upper lip, and Scott's eyes and lower lip.

She's a cutey, no matter what!

Angie said...

Such a cutie! :) I do love all her outfits and bows.

My AI picks are Lil Rounds, Danny and Adam. They blow me away! Kris is great, too, but I don't think he has the staying power these three have.

Keep writing. I keep reading.

Patty said...

I think Harper looks like you. :)
Either way, Harper is beautiful!

I am pulling for Danny and I like Lil Rounds.

I have been watching Dancing with the Stars except for season 1. I am hooked. :)

Blessings,
Patty

Beth said...

I have to agree with the comments that she is a beautiful mix of you and your husband! She is such a pretty baby! I have to give God a little shout out when I read your blog, He's just so awesome!

I love DWTS!!! Melissa was awesome. It's reality, sort of, with no real drama or craziness. I love all the ballroom dancing, wish I could do it!! A clean show, Yay!!

Beth--Tulsa

Jackie said...

Your daughter looks just darling in your outfit.I cannot beleive that you have saved it for all of these years for your sweet child to wear. She defintely is a mix of both you and your husband!REMEMBER THAT !50 % Mom plus 50%Dad = 100 % brillant!!!!
As for the Idols I am for Danny and Adam and LIL Rounds in that order! And I love dancing with the stars,it makes me want to just get up and try to dance all of their moves.LOL

Taylor said...

Harper is such a mix between you and Scott, neither one of you can deny her! Like you would want to!

I am HUGE fan of both American Idol and Dancing with the Stars!! Danny's my number 1 too!! And of course Kris!

I've been a big fan of DWTS for the past few seasons too, it's highly addictive!

michelle said...

I think she looks like you...all but the eyes. Thats the same way my daughter is...and I had her picture done in the outfit I came home from the hospital in. I love sentimental stuff like that. :) I have to say I love that you shop on a budget! So many people read your blog and admire you so much and I bet that encourages them in some way. It may sound strange..but it was to me. :)

Cary said...

I think she looks more like you- and a lot of people's baby pictures don't really resemble them all grown up but WOW!!! Your baby picture looks just like you- I think it's the smile...

Thanks for posting sweet pictures of Harper every day. Her sweet little face reminds me that God's blessings are abundant! She is such a little miracle!

Troy & Amy said...

I think she looks like the perfect blend of her mommy & daddy. What a beautiful little girl! I think that's so neat that you put her in the same outfit as you!

Teri said...

She has YOUR face BUT, your hubby's eyes! So, a great combination. :) Isn't it fun to compare baby pics????

Jessica said...

I have never watching Dancing With The Stars until this season. And I have to admit it is bc Melissa from The Bachelor is on there :)I just love her!!!

The Wrights said...

I think Harper looks more like you in the baby pictures. She is adorable no matter what!

purejoy said...

i think she's a good blend of both mommy & daddy!
i have lots of faves in am idol, but just started watching so i don't know their names. the guy with the awkward black/blue hair who is a rocker is pretty good, not that i like his style so much, but he's good. his eyes are pretty, too!
i liked the guy who sang with his guitar. he's talented. and the girl with the burgundy hair can flat-out sing! 16?? whatintheworld??
and DWTS, one of my all time faves. i love the apple computer guy. he's awkward, but so earnest!
loving melissa. i'm rooting for her!
your little baby is adorable. enjoy every minute!

Jess :) said...

I have to say that Harper is a beautiful combo of both you and Scott!! Just gorgeous!

As you know, I'm a HUGE DWTS fan and am so glad that you've jumped on the bandwagon!!

Also, Danny is my #1, too! Plus, I like Adam and Kris! I'm not a huge fan of the girls this season! Oh well! :)

Love ya

nichole said...

I think I had that same dress when I was a baby :)

mrosev14 said...

Hey Kelly, I think Harper does look like you. She is adorable!

Bethany said...

I think Harper looks almost exactly like you!! How adorable is she :)

Alyssa: said...

I found your blog through friends' blogs...love it and your precious baby girl! She's darling and I love her in her 'vintage' dress!

I watch DWTS--and have watched most seasons. I LOVE it! It's one of the few show my 5 year old and I both enjoy. We always climb into my bed and make a night out of it. But she always ends up getting down and dancing. She can't help it, it's in her blood!

SassyMomma said...

I think she looks like you! ;)

Jennifer said...

I love Dancing with the Stars! I think you made a good decision by getting onboard with that show.

Susie from Bienvenue said...

I think she looks a lot like you... both ways she gotta be cute. I mean come on..look at her parents! I also love that you have one of your little dresses. My Mom saved all of that stuff too and its fun to look back. Not that I remember any of hehe. I bet yall are having the time of your life... she is just so sweet and Im glad that she is feeling much better. Many prayers...God Bless~

Jaime said...

I just have to say that it is MY sister's b-day too. And she is a faithful reader...actually she is the one who told me about her blog. :-)

Megan Smith said...

Danny is my number 1.
Harper is beautiful.

Mykla said...

Harper looks like you! She is too cute! Her outfit is super cute as well! I love your blog! I read it daily! My favorite is Matt! Kris is a cutie though!

Shelley said...

Kelly,
Harper looks just like you!!!!! Not an American Idol watcher!?

The Snyder Family said...

Oh she so looks like you!

Lingars 2 said...

Kelly,
I think she looks JUST like you! She is totally georgeous! My girls started out looking like their Daddy and now they are completely MINE! It's funny how that works out....

LOVE DWTS! It is a family event here! We don't get to watch it until the night after y'all because we are in the UK, but my girls just love it! Enjoy!

r- m val said...

ugh, this season of american idol i really like most of them! i've been watching from day one this season and i think danny and micheal have a great story. along with lil.
i love danny's style along with the fact that he recently lost his wife and the fact that he's a worship leader at his family church... i'm pulling for him to at least make the top three so that he can get a record deal of some sort.
i realize adam is very good, but not my style so while i hope he does well, he's not a favorite of mine.
michael seems like the all around good guy. while i don't feel like he's the best talent wise...i hope he makes it to the top three.
i think allyson is very good and will probably go far. not my style, but for how young she is... she's GREAT.
kris did great this week. i think anoop has talent but this week wasn't good for him.
ya know... why don't you read my blog tomorrow for my full recap... i'm taking up all your commenting space!

p.s. i just recently discovered your blog and i think you and i could be GREAT friends if we lived anywhere close to each other! harper is adorable!

JKPeterson said...

No doubt. Daddy Eyes.

Kimberly said...

Oh, I can see both of you in her. How cute in the same dress!!

becky said...

I like a lot of the contestants this year on AI. I think they are giving Adam WAY too much credit. He is good, but definitely NOT my style and if you you tube him, he has a lot of exp. on stage and has done some interesting things to say the least. I really like Danny, Kris, Lil, Michael and Matt. Harper is so cute. She looks JUST like YOU!!! I love that your mom kept one of your outfits. That is so sweet!

Dawn Massey said...

I think Harper looks like you!! How sweet that she is wearing one of your dresses!! Out of four babies - I only have one that looks like me and she is only 5 months old so it could all change! Harper is a cutie!!

American Idol...my faves are Danny and Adam!!

I watched Dancing last season - missed it this week - I do enjoy it and might have to catch it next week!!!

BTW...I am kind of new to your blog, I have been following your story since Harper was in the hospital and all I can say is God is so Good!!! Look at that sweet girl!!!

Bama Girl in AZ said...

I say she looks more like her mommy!

Lindsey said...

Hands down she looks almost just like you!!! :)

http://arewardfromhim.blogspot.com

Leigh said...

Harper looks just like you with maybe a touch of her daddy! :)

Girl....you know we have to watch Dancing with the stars....TEAM MELISSA! I know you were pulling for her during The Bachelor! I think she is going to do well.

Kim said...

I think Harper looks like you! She is just so CUTE! I love seeing all of her outfits. Really makes me wish for a girl!

I got sucked into DWTS too! It's all Melissa's fault. Really, I only started watching becasue of her and now I have to see how she does!

Mandi said...

She is a spitting image of you!!! How cute to have a pic in the same outfit like that:).

DWTS - I'm an addict, I'm so happy Melissa is on this time:)

AI - Good list! I think it's going to be all about the boys again ... the girls just don't seem to have it!

jenn said...

kelly --
i think harper looks like her daddy :)
and i love the fact that she is wearing the same dress that you once wore...that is so special!!

American Idol:
i am so glad that they are FINALLY up to the top 12...i did not like how they stretched it out this year!!
having said all that...i LOVE Danny & i like Adam!!
i am also liking the new judge--kara :o)

Dancing With The Stars:
i too have been sucked in to this show this season...i am rooting for Melissa, but, i also like julianne & chuch (?)...i think thats his name!!

recession fashion:
i am loving that purple dress you posted! i think i'm gonna run out tonight and grab me one!! so cute :o)
thanks for the good tips...

Kelly said...

Harper is a good mix - I can see you both.

Miss Lila in Atlanta said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE
DANCING WITH THE STARS!!!

And hey how about that Melissa from the Bachelor?? Can she dance or what??

I go to ALL the sites you refer to for prayers. So, I'm praying alot! Thank you for letting us know about these folks.

petrii said...

Welcome aboard -- I so dig DWTS!!! So fun!! I like Danny the boys like Adam.

That little Harper is a darlin' and in the same dress how precious.

Have a Blessed day,
Dawn

Jessica K. said...

She def. looks like you!! I thought so in her newborn pics as well. She is one gorgeous baby!!!

I love the outfit.

Have a GREAT day!!!

KDLOST said...

SHE LOOKS LIKE YOU! :)

So precious!

Has it really been 8 weeks?! So wonderful!

The Garners said...

I think Harper looks a LOT like you!! So cute in your little dress!

Happy B-day to Chris! Micaela is here today--we ordered lunch together and ate here and Mario came over during his lunch hour.

I think it's a good season of A.I. Danny and Adam are probably my favorites, but of course I really like Kris and I'm cheering for him because he's from AR. Does he remind you of Eric Hudson somehow??

jlhonse said...

I love dancing with the stars! I really like the people they have this time. And I've been slacking on my AI so I don't have any favs yet. Harper is a dollface.

Mendy said...

Thanks for the info about Sam Moon jewelry. I love it!!! I'm going to snatch up some early Christmas gifts, too. I'm a 30 year old mom of 2 and feel like my fashion has slipped into "mom mode". I'm eager to step it up and try being more fashion conscious.

Been following your blog since Harper was born. She's a cutie and I've always thought she looked like her dad. :)

'MJ said...

Look at that dresss, omgoodness! I think she's a good 50/50 of the two of you.

Kelly,
I believe I have only commented once, when Harper was still in the hospital and I was praying for that sweet life! Your faith through all of this has been inspiring and I know that all the people praying were such an encourgement will you please pray for this family if you think about it: http://www.thetippingfamily.com/
She has already lost the first sextuplet and another one is trying to make his enterance into this world! she is only at 20 weeks!

Thank you I know this family could really really use it!

Holly said...

I think Harper is a great combination of you two...your coloring and some of Daddy's features. I love to see old outfits being put to good use! I used old dresses that belonged to my mother and me as valances in my girls' first nursery. I just ran a white wooden rod through the arms...it was really special. Yes, I watch DWTS....officially hooked every season. It looks like great exercise and I hear they have great workout videos!
Great post!!

A Journey of a Lifetime said...

I love Danny and so hope he wins! He's just great! And I did the same thing you did for Dancing with the Stars, I swore I wouldn't get hooked and I did. And I really love Melissa from the Bachelor this season!

I adore your blog and love reading your posts! Can you tell me what color you painted Harper's nursery? I love that brown and I would like to suggest it to a friend of mine! Thank you!

Aishlea & Brandon said...

I think Harper is a doll- and I think she favors you more! Maybe it is the matching dress, but she looks a lot like you!

DWTS is THE best show to me! I can miss American Idol every night, but one night of missing Dancing is like torture! Welcome aboard the DWTS following!

Alyssa said...

Oh, wow, I think she could be your twin!!!

Jaymee said...

She's the perfect combination of the both of you! You know she's the cutest. :)

My faves are Danny, Allison (both tied for 1st), then Matt and Kris.

I was sucked in too! I usually catch a few episodes each season, but I'm not hooked on it like AI. I actually only decided to watch since Melissa was on it and ended up liking a few people (my faves are Shawn Johnson and Melissa)...my poor husband is so excited that we'll be watching it this season. ;)

LeAnna said...

I think she looks like you both. She has your head shape, eyes and ears and his nose and mouth.

My American Idol favorites are:
Danny, Matt G, Megan & Lil (I like different) But I think that Adam had the best performance this week!

And I too have jumped on the DWTS band-wagon this season. I only watched because Melissa joined and Im not too sure if Ill be able to watch every episode. There were some TERRIBLE people and I was so embarrassed for them I could hardly watch. I mean I know some will get better, but I dont know if I can stick around to see if they do or not!

Kristin Stegent said...

Whoa! First look at those baby pics, I definitely saw Harper in you immediately and not really at all in her daddy. But when I took a closer look, she looks like she has the same ears, smile and maybe even eyebrows as him. Your eyes and lips. Good combo! :)

~aj~ said...

Girlfriend, Harper TOTALLY looks like you! And it's not just the outfit...she resembles your baby picture so much!

I'm amazed you were able to stay away from DWTS for so long. It's very addictive!

Claire said...

I think she's a pretty good blend...she has your nose and lips but Daddy's eyebrows and bright eyes. When I was little I looked just like my mom but people who knew my dad think I look like him...who knows!

I love DWTS. Thought that Shawn Johnson and Melissa were really good. I always have a soft spot for the football players, they're just so fun. As to AI, I think Danny is one I like and I like the blind guy (SO SORRY, I can't remember his name!).

cadence1228 said...

Awww.she's so cute - I think she looks like you! How lucky, my daughter looks JUST LIKE my husband! :)
Oh & you should change the your header to having Harper w/dark hair instead of blonde! :)
From a brunette...hehe...

Heather said...

I think she looks like you!!! What a cutie! I agree with your Idol picks...but I am still a hold out for dancing with the stars!!

Elyse said...

I love comparing pics of babies! I think Harper looks like you right now. But watch out she will look like you one day and like Scott the next. She is beautiful. I'm so glad that you were able to dress her in one of your own outfits, that is sooo cool!

She has her daddys smile, and big eyes! But her face shape is like yours.
She sure a pretty little thing for sure. I love her little dress.

baylormum said...

I don't know you, but I have been following you since Harper was a few days old.
I think she has a little of each of you in her face. She definitely does not have her daddy's forehead!
My daughter wore my christening dress. It was all my mother saved. Thanks for sharing her with so many.

Donna said...

Hi Kelly, I think Harper looks like a mix of the best of both of you. Do the side- by- side comparisons again in a month. Babies do change a lot. Love DWTS. Wish I could do that. I had an outfit both my boys wore and my Grandson. They all looked alike.
Keeping you in my heart in GA.
Donna

Linda said...

Your little cutie patutie is a great mix of the two of you. I don't usually watch Dancing with the Stars either(not faithfully, in fact I have never seen a full season) but somehow found myself watching it this past Monday and was pretty impressed with the people this time. I liked the olympic gymnist. She did really well. Happy birtday to your brother, your aunt, and your friends. Will pray for the Tipping family as well.
Blessings,
Linda

♥charity said...

Oh my goodness Harper looks just like her mommy!! And welcome to the DWTS obsession!! It is GREAT :) and I LOVE Danny and Adam on AI...can't wait for the seasons to unfold!!

Brooke said...

I too got sucked in to Dancing with the Stars (Thanks to Melissa being on:) and love it. My Idol picks are, Kris, Matt, Megan (go Utah!:) and Danny. I like Adam too but he screams alot. ha ha

Claire said...

I think Harper is a lovely combination of you both! And I love Danny and Kris and Adam too! :-)

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

See, now I think she looks more like you!
I love Danny and Adam on AI. As for the girls, Alexis is my fave.

Sara said...

I'm sure EVERYOn says this but you look JUST like Shawn Johnson to me.

Jenna said...

I think Kelly Jr. is looking cute as pie in her momma's outfit!

I enjoy me some DWTS as well, I have admit. And I agree - this season seems like it will be full of interesting/fun people to watch!

Happy Birthday to all your people!

Jenny said...

I think she looks like your except her eyes.

I watch dancing with the stars every season, but I missed most of it the other night.

The Horn Family said...

I am a huge fan of DWTS. I actually got to go to the semi-finals results show last season in LA. They really don't know who is kicked off until the very end. I am looking forward to this season.

Keren said...

I love the photo comparision! Great idea!
I am also torn between kris and danny...our good friend lives in Arkansas and goes to church with kris, they actually lead worship together so Im leaning a little more for him I think!

Colleen said...

Hey Kelly,
The pictures are just adorable! I think Harper looks more like you but she certainly has some of Daddy's features too.

Hillary said...

I think she is a perfect mix-it's really funny to me that you wrote this today because I wrote a very similar post and I think we both have daughters who look like a great mix of momma and daddy. :)

Lynn said...

I see both of you in her but right now she looks more like you. She is just precious!! Look forward to reading your blog each day!

As far as American Idol, I have liked Danny from the beginning and I like Lil as well. WE'll have to see what happens... I don't watch DWTS but have seen an episode or two.

Happy birthday to your brother and aunt!

Boo said...

She looks like her Daddy! What a GORGEOUS girl she is!!!! :)

mommaof4wife2r said...

she is a great combo of you both, i think! and i love hte cute baby pics!!!! off to pray for the tipping family...

Katie said...

She looks JUST LIKE YOU!!!!

Cherry Tree Lane said...

You guys are twins!!!

Rathi said...

I think she looks more like you with Scott's eyes! Old Navy is having a great deal on baby clothes too, and with the 30% coupon that someone posted on your previous post, it's a great deal. I saved alot today!! Have a great weekend!

nanny said...

How awesome that you still have your dress, Harper looks just like you!
Being from Arkansas I am for Kris!
My niece, who lives in Fayetteville, saw you in the hospital recently and new you from blog, and wouldn't tell you! I think she missed a great opportunity to talk with you!!! Why be shy? We are all friends!

tickledpink said...

I think Harper looks more like you! Adam is my favorite right now for the guys, and for the girls I like Allison and Alexis! I love DWTS and especially with Melissa on there. I think she has a good shot having been a DCC.

Joyce said...

She really is a good mix of you both, therefore, how could she go wrong!!

Big fan of Danny and Kris on Idol and I love watching DWTS!

Keep those pictures coming!

Twice as Nice said...

A mix but favoring daddy I think. Doesn't matter...either way she is BEAUTIFUL and very LOVED :o)

Jennifer C said...

Harper is gorgeous, Kelly....and I think you can see both mommy and daddy in her sweet face!

I LOVE DWTS! It's my favorite reality show!!!!

panamamama said...

Looks like you until you see the eyes, they look like Scott's. Hey, she will change so much from day to day and you'll see both of you at different times. E and J are mini-Scott's until they make a funny face or scowl and then it's me (J's eyes are the same color as mine though.) Max looks like Grandma Shirley to me, with Scott and I thrown in! :) Harper is gorgeous, that's for sure!

Epec said...

Kelly, I have to ask what year you were born. I saw the dress that you were in at 4 weeks, and Harper now, I am about 99.9% sure that I have a professional picture done of me as a baby in exactly the same photo. I am going to visit my parents this weekend and I will get a hold of it and post it, but I just thought that was too funny, especially since I was born in Pennsylvania in 1979. God Bless.

Lauren said...

Sweet baby girl! So precious! I think she is a great combination of you both!!

taralous said...

I too think Harper is a cute mix of the two of you. She is just precious! It's fun watching them change and favor their mom and dad in different mannerisms and faces :)
Loved the recession post! Ann Taylor LOFT is a fav of mine for their sales!

ScrappinAway said...

I think she is definitely a mix!
I love Danny and Adam would love to see them face off against each other...what a concert that would be.
I also heart dancing with the stars, especially since Melissa is on it!

Laurie said...

Very cute pictures! I love the old time dress!!!!!!!!!!!

Rebekah said...

Great pictures. I think Harper's eyes are your eye but I think she looks like Scott. On American Idol i like Danny, Kris and Alexis. Glad you all are doing well. Keep the pictures coming!

Mary said...

Harper is ALL YOU Kelly!!...she looks just like you, i swear she is even more gorgeous every time i see her!...I am so glad yall are doing well.. i just love reading your blog!
-Mary

Mary said...

wow i just realized the tipping family lives in Columbia, SC excatly where i live...they are at the hospital 5 minutes away from myself...i wish there was something i could do for them!!

KinaBolina said...

I think Harper looks more like you. The nose is spot on!

acardladyplyr said...

I think she is a replica of your hubby........I dont see you in her much!

Funny how the dress looks so much pinker now then when you wore it. Must be the camera?

acardladyplyr said...

Nope....I was wrong!! Beautiful Harper has your nose for sure..... Regardless of who she looks like she is a definate Keeper!!!!

Kristi said...

Oh, this is just adorable!! I definitely can see her Mommy in her :). My girls each got to wear a dress that I wore as a baby. I thought it was pretty neat!

newmanfamily said...

I love DWTS! I started watching the first season because we had just moved and didn't have cable for the entire summer that it started. I love Melissa from The Bachelor and Shawn Johnson.

miss shortcake said...

She's so lovely - and definitely a mix of you both!

p.s. could you please put me back on the prayer blog (and off the praise), we lost our baby.
-Alexandra Hunt

fortsmithmomma said...

Danny, Danny, Bo Banny. We are LOVIN' Danny at our house. So much talent this year but we have our sights on Danny.

Dancing lures me in each season, even tho' I swear I won't watch. Melissa was a surprise to me but she did a great job- even got a standing O!

Stephanie said...

I'm rooting for Danny too..love him! I got hooked on Dancing with the Stars last year and just love it now!

I just love the dress...that's so cute! And honestly I think she's the perfect mix of both of you :)

Kelly said...

I think Harper has her dad's smile and your eyes! She is such a cutie! Love the pictures, keep 'em coming!

Heather said...

Harper is definitely a perfect mix of both of you. And how precious that your Mom kept that outfit!!! Love it!

Tara said...

No matter which one she looks like....she's simply gorgeous either way.....SERIOUSLY.....I don't think I've ever seen a prettier baby.

Jennifer W. said...

That baby is ALL you but she's got Daddy's ears so far. My little one will be ONE next month (can't believe it) and EVERYONE tells me "she looks just like your husband!". I thought it was cute in the beginning but it's pretty old now. I think she's looking more like me :) Enjoy that BEAUTIFUL bundle!

Jacquie said...

I think Harper looks a lot like both of you!

I'm with you on the AI picks... and I haven't watched DWTS (this season). I'm in over my eyeballs in reality TV this time of year.

I'll be in your neck of the woods tomorrow! (I'm at Kale's tonight and tomorrow night)

Katy said...

Isn't it fun to compare photos from whe you were little. I have done that with our kiddos. And even more fun for me is to trick my hubby by asking him who is who amongst our kiddos in baby pix. He has NO clue!

Wanted to let you know I mentioned your site in my blog tonight. Hope that's ok - if not email me or leave a comment and I'll delete.

Oh - and I think she looks like you!
~Kate

Kandice said...

I think she looks alot like you but has scotts eyes! She's gorgeous either way! :) My favorite american idol is Danny but I also like allison. How cute is that dress. How special :)

Joyce said...

I think she looks mostly like you but you can see a bit of Daddy in there too. I love the pics-I have a picture of myself in a dress and then my oldest daughter in the same dress too. So sweet to see.

Life sounds good at your house these days : ) Have a wonderful weekend.

Veronica said...

Harper definitely favors both of you. Adorable that she gets to wear the same outfit you did!!!

I watched Dancing with the Stars the 1 season. It's the only time I have ever called in to a show to vote, but my girl from GH was on. I had to support her!

Katie B said...

I think Harper favors you more...she is so cute! But, I am sensitive to saying things like that---all I ever hear of my son is how much he looks like his daddy- I've had people say "he looks nothing like his mama"...I mean come on, even if you think that, please don't say that to the woman who carried this boy and birthed him into the world...

So, she looks like you!!! And she looks like your hubby!!!

Carolyn said...

That's a tough one, she is a good mix of both of you. I think she has your husbands nose though, for sure!!!

by: Allison said...

Great Blog! I have been following your blog since Harper was born. She is a lucky girl to have a great mom and dad like yall. Also great article in serious life magazine this month about Harper. Keep Blogging.

Thank you thank you thank you Kelly for putting the tipping family on your blog! You know just how amazing the power of prayer is!

Steph said...

Who are you kidding, that is minnie mommy :)
Adorable...
Love seeing all the photos of Harper!

Danielle Holtzman said...

I've never commented before, but I just HAD to this time because I think the pictures of you and Harper are almost identical! She is so cute! And so are you :)

rhilborn said...

It looks to me like sweet Harper favors you mostly with her Daddy's eyes. Isn't it a blessing to see you and your spouse reflected in their eyes:)?!

Karen said...

I think she has your coloring and looks like you except has her Daddy's eye shape. She is a beauty:)

Kari said...

Oh! Those baby pics are adorable! I think Harper is a perfect mix of the both of you!!

Tracy said...

I too am afraid to admit that I got sucked into this season of Dancing w/ the Stars...I swore I would never do it...but with Melissa, and Shawn and that nerdy guy...I couldn't resist...oh and the cowboy!!!

Alise Nettles said...

Thank you so much Kelly for mentioning the Tipping Family on your blog. I know it will bring them some much needed prayers! I continue to pray for each and every family you mention on your blog. The power of prayer is miraculous! Harper is so adorable and I enjoy all the updates and especially loved the discount shopping post! thanks!
Alise Nettles

Heather said...

When you are home with a new baby it is surprising what you will start to watch on t.v.! :) I watched my first season of DWTS when my son was 3 months old.

Idol picks: Danny #1, Adam #2, Kris #3

And I think Harper looks a lot like you right now...though if she's like my kids, it will depend on who you ask and it will change every month. She's beautiful, no doubt!
