Welcome to the Africa heat that we enjoy here in Texas. I use the word enjoy loosely...

Melissa Stover said...

pacis are a life saver. glad she finally gave in. is it hotter than arkansas?

Teresa said...

we love the paci, Aidan loves the paci. I kept an extra 1 in the diaper bag the other day, forgot the 1 but thought I had another 1, guess what, not there. My mom had it in her purse. I had to compromise, baby bottle nipple on the ring of the bottle with my finger in the end of the nipple. It worked, soothed him just enough in the car to go to sleep

Love the new blog design! We are in Wisconsin and it has been a weird summer as far as weather goes. It really has been rather cool and not too humid. I am enjoying it while it lasts. Can't say I am disappointed not to be in the heat. Hope you get some reprieve. Enjoy your vacation!

The heat here in Texas is hard to get used to, especially for little babies! One of my twins has such a hard time in the heat... just keep her hydrated! Have fun!

Whitney

Don't forget to eat some great Tex-Mex while your here.

Katie said...

Stay safe, and y'all have fun! (I sure hope you packed that child a mess of mile-high bows since she'll be in Texas with all the big hair. It probably wouldn't hurt to put her in something with rhinestones, too.)

CFMama said...

Love your new rotating headers. Stay cool in Texas and enjoy time away from the computer.

amy said...

Okay- LOVE that you're in TX (It's the best state, you know :) ). Dislike the heat too... it's a bit much. LOVE that Harper and paci are BFF. LOVE that you are taking a vacay from the computer to be with your fam!

Lynn said...

Stopping by to let you know I'm praying!
Psalms 91:3-6 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

I hope you, Harper and her paci have a wonderful time in Texas!

Ani said...

we were best friends with our son's paci, until we had to say goodbye at age 3. talk about a rough couple of days, but so worth it for the peace it provided for those 3 years :)

Jennifer said...

Have fun and enjoy your break!

Julia said...

I hope you enjoy your family! Try to say cool :)

Sonya said...

The Pollans said...

Howdy from Texas! Even though its hotter than hot, I hope you and Harper are enjoying our great state. Cant wait for you to be back on the computer :)

Love Being a Nonny said...

Funny...I have never heard of a baby starting to like a paci at her age. But hey, I'm all for it!!! have fun!

If the shoe FITZ said...

Yes it IS hotter than blazes here. Most people try to get away from the heat...but you come to it! ;)
Welcome to Texas!

Mrs. Williams said...

WELCOME TO TEXAS !! I live here in TX home of the 100 degree plus heat. You couldn't have picked a hotter time to come. Hope your enjotying your vacation.

TheFancyFritter said...

Have fun on vacay! That is so cute about Harper's paci! My little girl would never do it, so that's awesome she finally did! Don't you just love church nursery workers? They are the best! LOL

Melissa Lea said...

Have a fun and safe trip!!!

Marianne said...

Have a fun, safe and relaxing time on vacation. God bless the paci, or as we called them, Binkies. I always kept multiples of the same kind on hand just in case.

noahandlylasmommi said...

Have a great time :)

Andrea said...

I hear you on the heat. I'm in Houston and was begging for some of that rain you were getting last month.

My oldest was ADDICTED to the paci from birth. She'll be 2 next month and we are 1 month clean and sober...ha ha ha

My youngest HATES it and prefers her fingers, but I hope she has a change of heart in the next few months like little Miss Harper did. It's so much easier to break a kid of the paci rather than the thumb or fingers since you can't take their hands away. ha ha ha

rootsandrings said...

Texas! Texas! Yee Haw!

Claire said...

Oh I hope you have a wonderful time!

Cxx

Amy said...

have fun!!!!

Erin said...

Love the new look! Have fun on your vacay! :)

Jara said...

I live in Texas, and you are right, it's stinkin' HOT! I just started reading your blog and I LOVE it!!! You seem so fun and I like to see all the cute things you have for Harper. Most of all I love it that you are living for Christ and that you are not ashamed to say so. I just told my MOPS group about the ornaments you made (I'm on the creative (crafts) committee), I think we might make them for one of our Christmas stations this next year! SOOO cute!

Julie said...

I'm new to blogging and started reading yours and love it! Hope you are enjoying your vacay!!

Ashley said...

We miss you too! come home soon so we can take a walk with Melissa and really do this lunch date!!!

Cyndi said...

I hope that you have a great time being back at home! Harper is growing so much. I loved the interview.

Emily said...

What a fun interview! I love learning more about people I follow via blogs. Happy 6 Months to Harper!!

Rosemary said...

Missing you, but loved the story....thanks for sharing.

Jen said...

This works out great...I'm on vacation too...I don't have to miss reading your blog this way. :)

Have a wonderfull vacation and see yo when we both get back.

Donna said...

Texas - the oven of the U.S. That is what my son that lives in Austin says. I'm in Macon, Ga, so it is not much better. Enjoyed your interview! Have a good time in Dallas and don't melt!
Keeping you in my heart in Ga.
Donna

Stacey said...

Kelly- I enjoyed your interview! I am in Gulf Shores, AL right now for a mini vacay! Its so nice hear and it one of my fav place to be too!

K_L_C said...

It HAS been soooo hot here in Texas. Enjoy the time with your family and travel safely.

Jenna said...

Just a quick idea for you and Harper...

There's a children's book called, "Pinkalicious". If you've not gotten it, you should. You could do a Pink Party. Ask that all of Harper's gifts be pink ones. Then you can serve EVERYTHING PINK, just like what happened to the little girl in the book who turned pink eating pink cupcakes. Then she had to eat lots of green things to turn back to her normal self. SO, make sure you serve some greens as well. Great book even if you don't use it as a party theme.

There's also a "Purplelicious" book as well.

Kelley said...

I am so glad you had a safe trip! Your pictures are darling. My daughter loved her Paci. It was a wonderful thing.
