I am SO lucky because I have a huge group of friends who are stay at home moms or part time stay at home moms so now that we can get out - I can get together with them. There is a group from our church that get together every other Thursday for play group. I have been so jealous for the last 3 years because I wanted so badly to join. Every time, I would call Laurie and she would give me the lowdown on what happened so I could live vicariously through her.
Well - the day has come. Yesterday I went to my first play group!!!! And it was great! I was so nervous about how Harper would act but she did great. She was interested in the other kids and then she ended up falling asleep.
This is Emily and one of her best friends Alex. They are so sweet together. I love the age of 3 and 4. I don't want to wish the months and years away but I can't wait until Harper is 3 and can play with her friends like they do. And say the funniest stuff.
I look forward to many, many times of getting babies together to play and being able to visit with my friends.
After we got home - my parents came over for a short visit. They had to come to town for a few reasons so they stopped in to see Harper. We took Harper and Dawson on a walk. They were here so quick that I didn't even take a picture.
But I did take this picture this morning!
Today was another milestone - Harper got out for her first time to a restaurant! We met my friend Kelli for lunch at Gusano's pizza. Harper did pretty good. She really smiled at Kelli at first and then she sat in my lap for the second half of our meal.
We have a pretty free weekend which I'm excited about. Somehow I get nothing done EVER so I'm going to try and catch up on housework while Daddy's home to watch Harper. May even start on the GREAT CLOSET CLEANOUT 2009 (it is the temple of doom right now). Along with that goes my Great Inbox Cleanout. I have over 1000 e-mails that are pretty new that I can't seem to get answered. So if you have written me recently - I'm sorry if I haven't replied. I just don't get a lot of computer time these days - but I'm reading!!! I hope ya'll have a great weekend.
I want to share a few things to pray about for the weekend:
- Please pray for Jason and Kerri. They were expecting their own little girl named Harper and she was delivered on Tuesday and was born stillborn and went to be with Jesus. You can imagine how devastated they are. Please lift them up this weekend.
- Please pray for Amanda, 33, in Ft. Smith, AR. She has 4 young children and is on a heart transplant list. Her father was killed in the line of duty as a policeman when she was a child so they have already suffered heartache. Pray that she recieves a heart soon!
- All those links on the left still need our prayer!
