I let her wear her little Robeez shoes for the first time today - aren't her little legs and feet adorable?
(Ha - I am laughing so hard that I just saw in the comments ya'll pointed out her shoes were on the wrong feet. They totally ARE!!!!! I'm a terrible mother. I didn't even realize - I just slipped them on because I was trying to quickly take pictures before she got frustrated!) (Ya'll are WAY more observant than I am)
We ate lunch today with my friend Jenna and her son Brayden. Brayden is the baby who was in the NICU the same time as Harper (only different towns). They are 3 days apart. This is the first time we have gotten together since they were born and it was good to talk to someone who walked the same road. We were talking about how it's so hard for us to think about the early days of their little lives but here they are turning 5 months next week and they are perfect and healthy. I can't begin to describe to you how thankful I am. (Play Group friends - sorry I missed you - I thought play group was over for the summer???? OOPS?)
Harper and I met the cutest blog reader at the mall and I can remember the name because I'm a big "Friends" fan - so hi Courtney Cox! Nice to meet you today! :-)
I know most of you who live in my area (hopefully) saw this last night judging by all the pictures on facebook. (ha!) We were having storms here last night and I came out of Wal-Mart around 8:30 and saw this............the biggest, most complete rainbow I've ever seen. And I've NEVER seen a rainbow at night - have you? It was unbelievable. I wish my pictures were better - I couldn't get it all. People were walking out and dropping their jaws and everyone was taking pictures. And I started thinking of how the rainbow is a symbol of God's promise. And you normally see it in the daytime after a storm has passed and the sun has come out. But last night this was up while it was still thundering and lightening and dark outside. And I couldn't help but smile thinking what a beautiful picture of how God has promised to be with us during the darkest of times when we can't see the daylight coming along with the "daylight" times of our lives.
I know after the issues we had this week - you may feel wary or skeptical to pray for others but there are still so many in need and I'm going to list a few. Just know that God knows what we are praying for and He hears our requests.
