    What a beauty and congratulations. It's so surreal following your pregnancy this whole time and then actually realizing there is a real little human in there the whole time. Makes it more REAL for me since I'm due in 9 weeks. :)

  22. I've just recently been following your blog. Found you on Pinterest. I think I read the thing from start to finish in one hour. So excited on the arrival of Harper Eve!! She is beautiful!! Can't wait to hear about her arrival & see more pics!! Just a few thoughts/tips
    ~ Enjoy her being so tiny, they grow so fast!
    ~Trust your motherly instincts, always!!
    ~Breastfeeding is hard at first but stick it out for atleast two weeks, then it'll be smooth sailing.
    ~Don't loose sight of Jessica!
    ~Sleep when Harper sleeps!
    ~Let your hubby help out, even if he's doing it a different way than you'd like him to. :)
    ~Read to her every night & say a prayer with her. It becomes a comfort for them. (even when she is 11)!
    ~Love unconditionally!
    ~Last but not least, smell her, take that sweet baby smell in. :-)

    Congrats & many blessings!!
    Kelly
