Tomorrow's Friday!!!

Today has been a much better day! Harper has been so happy and sweet today!
I got her dressed this morning and she looked so sweet in this little white romper that I had to prop her up for a few pictures!
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)
She's looking at them like - "now how am I supposed to eat my feet with those things???"
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.
Just remember - People will fail us. God never will.

Have a good weekend - I'll be posting the Bathroom Tours in the morning!!! Two of my best friends from college are coming to visit me tomorrow and meet Harper and I'm SO excited .....but I have to scoot because I have a lot to do to get ready!

Harper's new shoes are ADORABLE. I really admire your sense of grace about the whole blog issue. You are a blessing.

Frugal Jen said...

Harper is so cute! My favorite baby stage is around 5 months they just cuddle and coo and love to be held. Enjoy sweet Harper. It is still a blessing to see how healthy she is after all the prayers. What a joy!

Heather said...

I love those first 2 pics of Harper! She is so cute!! Have a fun weekend with your friends!

Kendra said...

Harper is such a cutie! She and my daughter Camden are only a few weeks apart. It's so fun to see them changing!

I cannot wait for the bathroom tours. We're moving next month and I have been getting so many ideas from the home tours.

blessedmomto7 said...

Don't shoot me but I think Harpers shoes are on the wrong feet?

Have fun with your friends tomorrow!

theduexduo said...

We had storms down here in Texas too but I missed the gorgeous rainbow!

Ms. Harper is looking as pretty as a peach but I think her shoes should be on the other foot.?. :)

tahnie said...

that rainbow at night sounds amazing! i love harper's white outfit and big white bow. :)

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

I loved Robeez shoes! They are so stinkin cute. I still have my daughter 1st pair. They are in a box with all my "favorites" of hers, which I plan to break out at her 1st baby shower. (Hopefully...one day...a very long time from now:))

Love the rainbow picture. I never even knew a rainbow could be a night. Very Neat!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend with your friends

Jo said...

It won't be the last time she has shoes on the wrong feet - wait til she "dresses" herself lol....jo

Sonya said...

Those RObeez shoes are the best. Lauren wore those all the time until after she turned one and was walking really well. :)

Allyson @ The Blackwoods said...

What a small world it is! Wendy White (formely Benitez) was my Sunday School teacher growing up in Florida. Since I moved to Alabama 8 years ago we lost touch! I have often wondered how they were and now I can pray for their precious Baby Mason! Thanks for posting a link to their blog. Wendy and Kevin are some of the sweetest people I know!

Sarah said...

Harper and Brayden look SO into eachother! ha! She really loves her pink soft things,doesn't she?♥

The Combs 5 said...

Well i didn't notice the shoes either...just looking at that adorable little face! :)
I've done that a time or 2 with my kids also...if you're in a rush it's so easy to do! And honestly, some of those baby shoes are hard to tell which one goes on which foot!

Becky said...

So precious...I love the little "bubbles" for babies :) Maybe I can get some for Bonnie's baby soon! Love the shoes too...she's so cute!

Faithfully Yours said...

So cute! Beautiful rainbow!

Faithfully Yours said...

Oh, and thanks for the reminder! It's something we all need to hear from time to time!

Jenny said...

LOL about her shoes being on the wrong feet. I love Robeez, my daughter wore the pink kitty cat ones for awhile.

I didn't even know it was possible to have a rainbow at night!! How awesome.

Courtney said...

The rainbow was so cool. Love Harper's white outfit. For the record, I did not notice the shoes were on the wrong feet until you mentioned it!

Jacquie said...

I LOVE that second picture - too cute!!!

Those little shoes are adorable... even on the wrong feet. Ha!

I wish I could've seen that rainbow, it's beautiful and we need a little display of hope from God these days.

Grandma~rella said...

Adorable photo's of Miss Harper! Love the shoe-thing~LOL! And what an awesome, magical rainbow~WOW!

Hope it's ok to do this~but, there's a real baby being born tomorrow, who has the exact dame diagnosis as little 'April Rose' did. I promise you, this family is real. I was hoping you and some of your readers could visit The Glavin Family blog, Hailey's Hope, and leave some thought's and prayers. The site addy is: http://haileyshope.blogspot.com/
Thank you from the bottom of my heart! And thank you Kelli for all you do!!(((HUGS))) G'Ma~rella

Jenna said...

Wearing shoes on the correct feet is so overrated. :-) I hope you have the BEST time this weekend!!

Kate said...

Don't worry, my daughter had the same shoes as a baby and I always put them on the wrong feet! It doesn't count until they start walking, right?! Haha! So cute! PS- Robeez Tredz are good for walking babies too! Super cute and great for their precious feet!

mrosev14 said...

That is so much fun that you and Jenna met up today. Both your babies are beautiful.

That rainbow is nuts! I didn't know you could see one at night, shows how much I know. :)

It's a wonderful life said...

I absolutely love the 2nd picture and the shoes are just too cute!! I bet the rainbow was awesome!! Thanks for sharing and God bless

Amy said...

She is so precious! I love white on babies. The shoes are too cute, even on the wrong feet ;). We love Robeez, but I just have to make sure you try Pedipeds too. They are soooo cute and perfect for little feet. My favorite website to order from is www.tinysoles.com. They have super customer service and once you get on their list, you get all kinds of discounts. Our favorites are the brown with pink polka-dots :). Enjoy your company! Great friends are such a blessing from God. Amy

Jess :) said...

Adorable, again!! :) Don't worry...I still want to come over and love and hug and kiss her to pieces!! :)

Anyways, love the rainbow metaphor. It's perfect for everything going on right now. Also, THANK YOU for your ever so kind words this morning. You just have a way of making me feel so much better. It's hard to explain, but I value your words more than you will ever know, friend! So, THANK YOU!

Love you lots

mama faith said...

I'm loving the white on Harper! And thanks for being such a sweet spirit.

Stuart and Sarah Creamer said...

Hope you have a great weekend! I wanted to tell you I know Tammy Anderson from your church- I taught her son Reece in Kindergarten 2 years ago! She found my blog through your blog! I was so excited!

Rory said...

I was thinking something similar last night when the sky was pink and that big ol rainbow appeared. My sister and bro-in-law are photogs and they had a wedding a few weeks ago @ the Botanical Gardens and it was all gray and cloudy. Everyone was worried all day about the rain ruining everything. The moment the bride walked down the aisle, it poured. Then after the ceremony when they were taking pictures, it cleared up and a big rainbow appeared. It was like a reminder that God has a plan and it might not seem like a good plan at the time, but He knows what He's doing.

PS I was at the mall today...I didn't see you. Bummer, I would have been a big old nerd anyway!!

Vera said...

Wow that is amazing - I didn't even know raibows were possible at night! Harper is a cutie pie as always. I LOVED Robeez when by babies were little!!

McFarland Family said...

The rainbow pic was AMAZING!! I never knew a rainbow could happen at night? Hey you learn something new everyday hahaha
Love Harpers new shoes she is the cutest thing ever!!! Have fun with your friends this weekend!

Heather said...

I am so incredibly thankful that God's promises DO come through the darkness and the hard times. He is always right there and He is always good. Even when it's dark and we can't see Him...before you know it, here comes that rainbow out of the night!!!
Have a great time with Leigh Ann tomorrow!!!
Love ya!

Chari said...

I'm a sucker for baby shoes ;-) Those are too cute!

You're right, God never does fail us! And that's wonderful to know!!

Allyson said...

I've only posted comments a few times on your blog, but I have been a follower "pre Harper". I know you always put out prayer requests and I have one for you - my mother in law had a stroke last Sunday. If you click on my link, you can read about it. I know there's not a high chance that you'll put her on your blog for people to pray for her, but just in case I needed to leave a comment. She is such a wonderful person and she needs all the prayer she can get right now. I know that you probably have so many people that ask for your prayers on a daily basis, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. Thanks!

Jami said...

I wanted to tell you again THANK YOU so much for putting Layla on the prayer list. I'm not sure if you are keeping up with her or not so I'll give you a quick update... They went Monday to start round 2 of chemo and she came down with a blood infection. They were in the waiting room at the hospital when she spiked a 103 temp. PTL they were at the hospital already and were able to get fast treatment for her!

I just LOVE Harpers shoes... even if they are on the wrong feet they are just ADORABLE! Have a wonderful weekend.

Carla said...

I LOOOOOOOVE Harper's shoes. I think I may need to track some down for my little London. And what a beautiful rainbow! Thanks for pointing us towards those blogs also.

PamperingBeki said...

She looks so sweet in that white!!

I love the Robeez, but you do have to try pedipeds too as someone else mentioned. (My hair flowers were actually in a pediped ad last fall! YAY!)

I owe you an email...

teasinglydiverse said...

How hilarious - I would *totally* put the shoes on the wrong feet, especially when they're so soft like baby shoes are.
That rainbow is AMAZING!

Aaron, Lacey, and Audrey said...

my daughter always loved chewing on her feet also, and when I put her robeez on she would just chew on them! So my hubbie nicknamed them her Jimmy Chewies ;-) so funny!

Harper is just adorable!!

Lindsay said...

Hi! I am a new reader, love your blog by the way! Anyway, just wanted to tell you I did the same thing to my daughter...with the shoes on the wrong feet. Funny thing, I even did it a few weeks ago and she walks now. Those darn Crocs look alike..haha!

Have a great weekend!

Beth said...

The shoe thing made me laugh out loud. I think the Roebeez are cute, but they just look kind of funny on. It's not hard to put them on the wrong feet. I like Pedipeds. Have you bought any of those?

Stuart and Sarah Creamer said...

Yes- Stuart and I used to live in Bella Vista and I taught Kindergarten in Bentonville for 2 years before we moved back here last year. I miss living up there, but with all the infertility and invitro- it has been such a blessing to be back home.
Tammy and her family are the sweetest. Reece is a mess but he was the light of my classroom! He could make you smile no matter what he did- even if it was naughty! ha ha

Darla said...

i know a Courtney Cox, i wonder if you met the one that i know? that's cool either way. the one i know is really cute too. Harper is adorable even with her shoes on the wrong feet.

Dina said...

We saw the same night time rainbow here in Texas too! I didn't get nearly as good of a picture though. I guess I should have gone to walmart! God is so good!

Holly said...

Harpers shoes are so cute and I love her white outfit. That rainbow at night is really neat. I've never seen one at night before. I guess I just assumed that couldn't happen. I'm always amazed by what God can do!

Mrs. Goodson...Woo Hoo!! said...

Harper is such an adorable little girl....her shoes (wrong feet & all) are too cute!!

Sarah said...

The little white outfit is precious!

Sara Lynn said...

Thank you for sharing the rainbow! That was amazing I have never seen such a thing before!!!

ScrappinAway said...

I didn't even know there could be a rainbow at night...didn't think there would be enough light! I love the little shoes, they were a favorite at our house as well!

Robin said...

I thought playgroup was over too, so we missed it also!

love her shoes!!

Mallory said...

Sweet shoes! I miss the days of them being easy to put on -- mine curls her twos up now!

Kim said...

I think those shoes are cute regardless of being on the wrong feet! ha!
The rainbow Wed night was beautiful! The sky was the color of orange juice! It was so pretty! My first thought was, THank you God for all your promises and your faithfulness!
I didn't know you were a Friends fan! I am addicted to that show! I think I've seen every episode about ten times! Last night I watched the one with Ross and his leather pants! ha ha!
Enjoy your weekend!

L2L said...

I have a prayer request that I was hoping you would pray for, thanks.
