5 years ago today..

5 years ago to about this very minute Harper Rae Johnson was born... She was born at 2:32 pm, 8lbs 5 oz and 21 inches long with a full head of dark hair! The time has gone by so incredibly fast. I remember my mom always saying that 'once you have kids, you will understand how fast time goes by'. I now understand what she meant. It truly does not seem like it was 5 years ago. Matt and I were lying in bed last night talking about things we remembering things.... The things I/we remember:

Going to lunch at Brewsky's the day (25th) we were to check in at the hospital to be induced. I of course had a BlackJack burger.

We had to be there at 5:30pm on the 25th and then we had to sit in the waiting room and wait and wait and wait.. They were so busy they were trying to get a room ready.

Matt being 'eaten' by the fold out bed in the labor and delivery room.

Telling the nurse 'I don't think I want an epidural' she nicely said I should sign the consent 'just in case'. Thank GOD for that.. I wanted that epidural as soon as I could.. LOL

Matt checking out all the instruments the nurses had put on the table - he was trying how he could get some of them home.. lol

The relief when Dr. Taylor finally said... OK, let's go in and get her out

The first time I heard her Cry...

Deb & Dr. Talyor's reaction when we told her we were going to name her Harper.. they liked it

Matt going from the nursery to the recovery room...to the nursery to the recovery room...

The first time I got to feed her

My niece Miechelle coming to visit and telling me she was Pregnant!

There are so many more, and I think I need Matt's help....

happy birthday Harper Rae Johnson I LOVE YOU!

Harper's Humor Chapter 12 page 1

Time has just been flying by since Christmas. I looked and hadn't blogged anything in almost a month and a lot has been going on. I thought I would get my feet wet with a Harper's Humor..There had been a lot the last month and I have been terrible at posting them.

Matt had told me when we got home that Grandpa Steve may come be coming over tonight and headed down to the garage. Harper was sitting at the table finishing her dinner when Matt came up and said that Grandpa was not coming over - that he had gotten into him book and was just going to stay in for the night. I said OK and then Harper's says "How did Grandpa get into his book Daddy?" We laughed and tried to explain it to her.....
