Our little Teredactyl

I made a little pallet on the floor today for Harper to roll around on so I could sit down and eat a picnic lunch with her. She had fun just moving around and "talking". So I made a quick video of her so we could record her new voice. Then Scott came home and was making her laugh so I recorded them also. They are too big to e-mail to grandparents so I thought I would share them here and even if you aren't one of the grandparents - you still might like to see her!
Is there anything sweeter than a happy baby????

The Santa Ana's said...

Those were too cute! I always try to woo my husband to stay home with us when he comes home for lunch, so it's funny to hear someone else do it. Have fun with that talking baby!

There is nothing cuter than a happy baby! What cute videos.

Snow White said...

My two boys (ages 12 and 15) just told me, "Mom, you have officially lost it." I am sitting here watching Harper's precious baby sounds and crying because I'm remembering THEIR baby sounds and wishing I could go back in time and have just one of those days back!
Enjoy, treasure and relish in this day!
Love,
Snow

Hi Kelly-long time no blog for me, life has been crazy lately! I just wanted to tell you there is nothing better than watching the two of you love and enjoy that precious gift, Harper. You will always be such an inspiration for me and looking at the 3 of you now, my heart just overflows with joy for all of you! She is absolutely beautiful! God Bless!

Nothing sweeter than a Daddy and his baby girl! I don't know who enjoyed these videos more...me or Ella Grace. She said, "Awww. She is so cute. I want to play with her." Hopefully, she'll get the chance one day. That would be so sweet!

Kelly Taylor said...

Alaska Girl said...

One of the best pieces of advice I received when I had my first baby is, "you can never take too many pictures/videos". And it's the truth! They grow and change daily...thanks for sharing Happy Harper's giggles! L

Tiffany Brooks said...

i know you don't know me, i've posted on other time. i love reading your blog. But wanted to share this funny tidbit with you. I was watching the video where you were asking Harper to say momma or daddy and my little 18 month old was standing here and she was like "Daddy!!" all proud of herself. haha. Thought I would share. Thanks for the encouragement and faith you show everyone. In Him, Tiffany Brooks

marie said...

Oh, how cool is it to hear Harper talk to her mama and daddy, She really loves her feet huh? I think its so cute to see her play, Does she pay Dawdon any attention or does he want to play with her? I am amazed at how "SOUTHERN"you sound, neat!!

My girls are 5 and 7 now. Seeing that video makes me miss that age. I loved that age! Don't get me wrong, they still do plenty of cute things now. But there is something so sweet about a little baby laughing, smiling and cooing!

Kelli said...

That is the best!

Kristen said...

That was so cute! Lauren is on my lap watching it and she was just mesmerized by Harper - she kept trying to grab the screen!

MelH said...

Oh Kelly, as much joy as it gives me to hear that sweet girl , it gives me even greater joy to hear the happiness and love in your voice. I am just simply thrilled for you and Scott. These are the best times ever, aren't they???

Catrina & Randy said...

She is way to cute. I can't believe how fast she is growing up too!

Mary Avery said...

She's so cute! I won't even tell you how many months my hair fell out. It might depress you. It was ALL over our house and it would get in John Michael's hands and toes. It's gonna keep falling out, but it will stop!

Emily said...

Those videos are so precious. Your best days are ahead trust me. She will get better every day!

Thanks so much for sharing them with all of us!

Jules said...

So so sweet, Kelly! Thanks for sharing - I'm sure we all watched it with BIG smiles on our faces!!

Our sweet daughter is now 8, and it seems like yesterday we were doing the exact same thing. I know you are enjoying each day - it is precious no matter what age!!

Scott and Stephanie said...

I LOVE that you are teaching her to call the Hogs at such a young age!! You can't ever start too soon!! :-)

oliviasmommy07 said...

There is nothing better than the sound of a baby laughing. I absolutely LOVE to watch little girls and their daddies!! Harper is precious! Thanks so much for sharing her with us.

Alexis said...

Your hubby seems so good with her! Love Harper's little dinosaur song. She does love her tongue, doesn't she?

Mom2Valerie said...

How precious! I just LOVE baby sounds - there really isn't anything sweeter! It's music to a momma's ears, isn't it?

Jennifer said...

I love seeing Harper eat her feet!! That is so cute!! And her little voice is precious. How fun to see her be enjoyed by her very loving mommy and daddy! (o;

Funky Kim said...

Harper would be SOOOOOOOOOOOO disappointed in our Sonic. They ran out of ice cream the other evening. For pity's sake! Sonic cannot run out of ice cream!

joro said...

Kelly,

Love your blog - my family loves watc`hing Harper and her headbands - lol . For some reason I can't get to the linky for the home tour - everytime I bring up the page part way thru I get an abort msg - I've tried 3 different computers with the same result :(

Kelley said...

oh my goodness she is the sweetest thing! Your baby is just beautiful!

Kari said...

Charlotte {my 2 year old} and I were just watching your videos and cracking up! Then, you said the P-word!!!! {PARK!!!!} Charlotte looked at me and said : "Charlotte go to the park!? Go to the park with 'that baby!?' PLEASEE!? Please go to the park with 'That baby'!" it was soo sweet. And, another reason I would love to live closer to you!! AND....you have inspired me to get out of my house more and take my girls on walks!! I have a friend that lives nearby and my road is not busy at all, so hopefully everyday or atleast a few times a week, we are going to get together and walk. TODAY...will be the first day! I actually just got off the phone with her about it! I am not an outside person, so Charlotte is going to have to really motivate me to keep it up!! haha

The Williamson's said...

Oh my goodness! Harper is absolutely ADORABLE!! I can't wait to have children. They are such a blessing!

Corby and Lauren said...

She is SO precious!!! I couldn't help but notice her lovie... my Harper has the exact same one (the animal head is a bunny) with the exact same font and color. Let's be honest, that's just a little weird. Who knows... one day they may be at the UofA together as Razorback cheerleaders!

Julia said...

There is nothing better than a happy baby, I love these!!! Don't you just love how she loves her Daddy?

Kelly said...

LOL Both of my girls had a stage where they sounded like a velociraptor! (Also a dinosaur...)

Jacquie said...

She loves the sound of her own voice, doesn't she? (Seems people think you have an accent. Ha!)

I love the videos!! So sweet.

Can't wait to see y'all this weekend. (and... I love Harper's blanket.)

sjm4him said...

No, there is NOTHING sweeter than a happy, laughing baby! Thanks for sharing! She's precious! :)

Elle's Mom said...

So sweet! I love this age! Makes me want another baby :-)

Megan said...

I am a Baylor Bear, but as soon as Harper giggled/squawked/whatever that was at the mention of "Razorback Cheerleader," I momentarily cheered for the Hogs.

Kelly's Korner...bringing us a closer to Jesus and Arkansas Football!

Melissa said...

Those are sooooo cute! I just love that she can "eat" her toes! My little guy isn't as limber as Harper and can't get the toes to the mouth. I laugh when you blog about the blow outs. We call them blow outs, too and have one almost every day. Oh the FUN!

Jen said...

Oh my goodness. What adorable videos.
Thanks for sharing.

Donna said...

Kelly, these videos of Harper will be some of your most prized possessions. Keep it up. Nothing like reliving her little noises when you are old and gray.
Keeping you in my heart in GA.

Harper and Clara would totally be buddies...they are both interested in their toes! Clara can't get enough of them!

SAS said...

That is so sweet. I don't think there is anything sweeter than a daddy and little girl's bond!
