I adore being a girl

How fun are these shirts???? Jill at www.twinklingtees.com sent these to us! I love them!!! (Do you know how hard it is to take a self picture of yourself and a 3 month old???) Oh and I went to bed with my hair wet so when I woke up I had curly hair. I curled it a little extra - what do you think? Just wanted to show I could change things a little. ha!

Little sweet thing
Ya'll know Harper has a ton of bows and head bands - I thought I would show you her bow holders. The one on the left was sent to her by www.lavishbliss.com, the one in the middle was made my dear friend Jamie, and the one on the right was made by www.carmenscreations.net


Tomorrow - I am going to give away a pair of vintage style baby shoes like these - go here to see how you can win. You have until 5 p.m. tomorrow!!!

Don't forget you can also win an awesome unique toy on the same place - that ends tomorrow at noon!

I'm so excited to have all my family here tomorrow - my parents, brother, and sister-in-law! I'm hoping for good naps today because I have a lot of cooking/cleaning to do!!! I'll have recipes to share this weekend. Oh and I plan on trying several of your low fat recipes - I went the easiest route with angel food cake and strawberries yesterday and tomorrow I'm making low fat banana pudding!

P.S. Laurie just called to tell me she had had one of the worst mornings of being a mother yet. I won't give it away but she was just here so I could take pictures of someone who may or may not have cut her hair all off. I'm hoping she will post about it today so you will have to check her blog out later. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. (Since it's not my child - I mostly laughed until I cried!) Bless her sweet heart I love her so much. She told Laurie on the way to my house "Kelly is going to be so sad". ha!

Cute shirts! Your hair looks cute, too! With all the feeling I can put into Times New Roman typeset, I am SO SORRY for Laurie. Truly. (moment of silence) I'm not sure which is worse, "worst mornings of motherhood" involving poop or scissors.

Hi Kelly!

I came across your blog back when your precious little girl was in the hospital. Your faith that God would see her through, and bring her home to you, was so amazing and inspirational. You leaned on His strength and he got you through each and every {rough} day. When Harper pulled through, and you posted about her progress, I was in tears. Now look at her...growing up so quickly...she is a DOLL!!!

It is so evident that you are a wonderful mother, an amazing wife, and a great daughter, friend and source of support for so many people. And based on the number of people who follow your blog, many others feel the same :)

I just wanted you to know that your light definitely shines. Seeing how dedicated you are in your relationship with God, and sensing your sweet disposition, has really caused me to reflect on how I can sharpen these two areas in my life.

So thankful to have found your blog, and so happy that Harper is a beautiful, thriving baby girl who brings such joy to your life...

- Jessica

Kelly said...

Hi Kelly! Your blog topics are just too fun! Love, love the different do! I don't change mine up much, but have my eyes on some cute headbands on ETSY (seller sheabay...and FYI...I would wear as a hair band w/ a cute pony tail...NOT on my forehead..although the model looks like a doll)! I feel for your friend...my 6 year old cut my 3 year old's hair...only 1 side! Thank goodness for BIG bows! There have been many times that I just had to laugh at my children b/c if I didn't laugh, I knew I would just sob! :-)

Heather Lynne said...

I got a few headbands for Isabelle when she was born but she didn't wear them much!!!!! It took a long time for them to fit on her head (she was born weighing 5 pounds 4 oz) but by the time they did, she didn't like them on her head!!!!!

Love the t's, too!
And...Hootie was one of my faves as Hootie and the Blowfish and now he sings country and is sooooo good! And the fact that he is from SC like me dosen't hurt either.
And one more thing - the rooster lamp in the background of your t-shirt picture is awesome - I have been looking for one like that for my kitchen!

Rachel said...

I love your hair!!! I hope that when I have kids I look as put together as you do!

Vicki said...

Cute photo..although I'm not a big lover of babies in black...it's too severe for little girls.

Love your hair "au natural"

Before I got the part about your hair, I was thinking how cute it looked in your picture! Love the tees too!!!

chubmoma said...

Your hair looks fantastic. But you always look so great, put-together and happy.

Enjoy the time with your family.

Southern said...

Loved your hair before I even read the entry - you look great - lost the weight already? Arms look good too! Of course, I didn't "know" you before baby, but I can tell you're getting in shape. Your face looks smaller - so you go girl!

Love your hair but you are soooo beautiful that I love it the other way to. I think it is gorgeaous behind your ear also!!!!! You are a GREAT mommy (coming from a SHAM of 4) I love your pictures of Harper and all your activities. I just started blogging this year I wish so badly I would have known about this years ago. Harper is a lucky girl and you are one lucky mom.


Hearts and Hugs

Jacquie said...

I LOVE the curls. I was curious how curly your hair is naturally.

Poor Laurie. I have a couple of memories that, at the time, were just devastating, but now that I look back on them, they're funny and precious. She will too.

Lori said...

You two are so adorable! I love being a girl, also. I really do like your hair with the curls, it looks so soft! But it always looks great!!

kristin said...

I LOVE your hair that way, so cute!
Cute outfits, too.

Becca said...

I LOVE your hair like that! :-) those t-shirts are too too cute -- love it! Harper is the cutest!

Heather, aka Jake's Mommy said...

You guys look great!! I am a big time sucker for babies in jeans. There is just something so .. I dunno, grown-up about it! She is a doll, as usual.

Nancy said...

Kelly-your blog is such fun to read! I've enjoyed it so much since your precious Harper was born (I found you through Annalee). I think your hair is great curly (very soft looking)AND straight--your fortunate you can mix things up a bit! I have a request: when you're posting your new recipes, would you please include your recipe for (OK, let me try to say this right) dipped red velvet balls? You posted them on one of your blogs, but I didn't find it on your recipe blog (although the cupcakes look YUMMY). I'd love to serve them with traditional petit fours at an upcoming shower. Thanks so much!

Angry Julie Monday said...

Your hair looks fabulous. You both look so cute in your matching bling!

Kristi said...

I love your hair like that. Harper is too cute in her little jeans. My girls have lots of hairbow and headbands as well, but a baby girl can never have too many!

Britni and Justin said...

Beth F said...

:0)
Beth

Ana said...

Just in case your weren't sure (heehee)...you're hair looks super cute! Have a great day!

Bethany said...

Kelly,
I linked to your blog through Jenna's. She is a friend of mine from college. I've been following your story off and on (we've had a lot of drama with our little one as well and been in and out of the hospital!) and have been in prayer for yall! I just love reading about you and your little Harper. She is so precious! Your t's are fabulous in this picture! Just love 'em! Take care!

tiffany s said...

I LOVE your hair!!
I have a curly hair which I hate! I wish I have a straight hair like yours! That way you can fix it whatever you want to! Curly hair is so difficult to fix.
You're so beautiful & Harper is too!
I love the shirts! What a great idea!

Roxanne said...

Definitely lovin' the hair! You do not want to know what mine looks like if I sleep with it wet. YIKES!

ginger said...

Yeah...don't get too attached to your daughter's hair. You never know when she will wake you up with about 4 inches less than you last saw her with. And don't ask how I know. Ask my 12 year-old who hears about her 2 year-old antics occasionally.
Tell Laurie it grows back. {Although I didn't want to hear that 10 years ago! ;)}

Gretchen and Jimmy said...

Both you and Harper look so ADORABLE in your matching shirts!!

Claire said...

Ooooh, your hair is cute!

Aly said...

Jenn said...

Kelly,
Oh my dear. I recently heard about your blog shortly after you delivered Harper (she is ADORABLE). I immediately started praying for your family.
I am a mom to micro-preemie twins born two days apart. Grace was born (naturally) on August 15th 2007 at 1 lb 4 oz, and Faith was born (c-section) on August 17th 2007 at 1 lb 3 oz.
We were in our local Childrens Hospital for 5 months before they came home. They will be two in August.
We share the same Heavenly Father. Creator of us all. I just wanted to say Hi from Washington. And I just absolutely LOVE your hair today.
Don't we all just need one REALLY good hair day??? Today is definately yours.
In His name
Jen

Courtney said...

Love your shirts. The hair looks great. I can go to bed with my hair wet, but somehow it never looks like that!!!

Elle's Mom said...

Those shirts are adorable!!! So many hair bows for a such a sweet girl! Yes, being a mom to a little girl is so much fun :-)

Susan said...

LOVE the hair!! And the pic you chose for Harper's baby dedication is just perfect!

Beck said...

Kelly I LOVE your hair! Mine is long and I am trying to work up the guts to cut it all off for summer! Seeing your hair today makes it a little easier for me to see myself with short hair, LOL! Love the outfits, so cute!

Jenna said...

LOVE the shirts, and your hair is SO sassy!! Lookin good, my sista!

Have a great weekend with the fam!

monica said...

Love your hair, 1st thing I noticed.

Looking longingly at the girly accessories and saying over and over "it's ok, i'm going to save so much money when cole arrives in a few weeks ;)"

Kristen said...

the hair is VERY in and works for you!! and easy!!?? i love it! harper melts my heart. the outfits are cute....!!!!!!

My Home - My Life said...

Love the matching shirts - too cute! And I really like your hair like that - gives it a little extra "oomf"!

Melissa said...

Seriously, I think you have the most beautiful baby girl I have ever seen. What more can I say? ha. her face is priceless.

Jennifer said...

You both are too cute in your matching shirts! I just saw Harper's Razorback bow in that pic and I love it! You really have a bow for every occasion! Have a wonderful weekend with your family!

Kodi said...

Just when I didn't think you could get any cuter! I love the hair and the shirt. LOVE LOVE LOVE them. Great post. :)

Kelley said...

I love you hair! The shirts are adorable. I have a 3 year old so I know that my time is coming with the scissors. I guess it would depend on if I could cover it up or not whether I would laugh or cry. Probably cry!!!

r- m val said...

the shirts are cute... but your hair is DARLING! very cute alternative when you're in a hurry!

kaylee114 said...

Ok, your hair looks AMAZING like that!!!! You should always wear it that way! Its softens and frames your face so lovely..the old style looked a bit harsh for your face. this is sooooo much better!!!!

Love the matching black outfits! I never thought id say a baby girl looks good in black ..but she DOES!!

And, umm Miss Harper looks sooo grown up!!

You HAVE to go check out www.littleoneapril.blogspot.com/

for the BEST news ever on little April Rose!!!
GOD IS GOOD! What a testimony! It totally made my day!

Amy said...

Okay, I LOVE the shirts! But the first thing I noticed was your hair! It looks awesome! But it always looks good. You guys are precious.

Andy and Kelly said...

The shirts are so cute! I just read that you went to OBU on your profile, and so did I! I graduated in 2005, so we might have missed each other. Anyways, your daughter is adorable!!! (I also left a comment on your giveaway!)

Catherine said...

You are both adorable, and I went right over to get matching shirts for myself and my 3 year old girlie.

Love your hair, both ways -- I hope that annoying rude commenter anonymous person backs off!

You are a blessing, Kelly!!!

Sonya said...

I like your hair like that!! You look fancy!! Love the shirts too. I may have to get one.

daftsonographer said...

I have always liked your hair curly so I like it better this way! Love ya girl! Dea

Alexandra's Mommy said...

Wondering what size shirt you got form Jill?!?! I want to order one but not sure on the sizing!

Donna said...

Awwww, you and Mini-Me are so adorable in your matching shirts. And I also noticed your hair first thing. Looks great, as usual. Went by your Mom's blog yesterday and she had posted the salsa recipe. Yummo! Can't wait to make that. Tell Laurie to just laugh and get over the hair cut, because it probably won't be the last. My sister gave herself a new 'do as a child, but my son came home from HIGH school one day with a new haircut. His friend had shaved the sides with the dog clippers and he had a pony tail in the back, sort of a GA. mullet i guess. With kids, there is never a dull moment, thank goodness. Have a good time with your family. I will have Harper withdrawl until you are back in cyberspace.
Keeping you in my heart in GA.
Donna

Mallory said...

I love your hair curly and your matching shirts-so adorable!

Jenn said...

I love the hair! It was the first thing I noticed. Second thing I noticed was you are looking even more fabulous these days! Then I noticed the adorable shirts :)

Angela said...

Your t-shirts are too cute!!

The Stain Family said...

Oh. my. dear. goodness. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your hair like that {and the usual way too!}...but seriously, when I looked at it I thought, "oh wow, she spent a few extra hours with a curling iron today and it looks fantabulastic!" That's wonderful that you just woke up with it looking like that...how easy is that?! :) Yay for new found {easy} ways to wear our hair!

Holly said...

Love the shirts, they are adorable!

Your hair looks nice too, you suit being a curly girl...not that I'm biased or anything!? :P

Becky said...

I love those shoes. The nursery my daughter did for her boy trips was a vintage theme. It was so much fun looking in antique shops for things to use (books, toys, clothing) I loved the things at the site but for some reason, I could not enter the contest (sometimes there is a glitch when it requires that info).

Enjoy your time off.

TB said...

Hey Kelly,
I am on board for you taking a break! You need a little "me" time. And yes, I LOVE your hair in this picture! It is a great look for you!!
Get some rest on your time off!!
Love,
Tina

Jamie said...

Amber said...

I'm loving the curly hair! (and NOT because your normal hair style is boring!) It's just really cute and flattering. You should go a little curly more often! And, the t-shirts are super cute too!
