Kelly's Baby Shower

I have been invited to a wonderful Baby Shower for Kelly!
I am a little late, but better late than never.
Thank you Jenna, Faith and Heather for planning this shower!

I am so glad that I found your blog through Julia's blog. You have been such a blessing and an inspiration as you waited on the Lord to bless you with a child. My heart went out to you as you struggled through many of the same things that I went through when I was trying to get pregnant. I could not believe the day that I found out that I was pregnant. God truly performed a miracle, and now he has performed one for you! I am so happy for you and Scott!

I have a few words of wisdom:

You may have already heard this, but someone told me that I should not try to be "the perfect mother" just because I struggled with infertility and wanted to have a baby so badly. I have tried to be the best mother that I can be, but I am far from perfect!

Remember to reposition Harper in her crib so that she is not laying on the same side of her head every night to prevent plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome). My daughter was referred to a specialist by her pediatrician because she had a slightly flat head. The specialist wanted Amanda to wear one of those baby helmets. My husband and I decided against the helmet and started repositioning Amanda. It worked and Amanda turned out fine.

While I was on maternity leave, I took naps during the day when Amanda was napping. Don't feel like you need to do chores and things while Harper is asleep — you need as much rest as possible too!

Congratulations Scott and Kelly!!!
