**Warning: Omphalocele Pictures Below**
I hope everyone is having a very merry holiday season! The festivities have begun in the Meabon household.
On Friday, Harper attended her Honey's Bible Study Christmas Party. These fabulous women have been prayer warriors for Harper since early in my pregnancy and it was such a pleasure to have Harper meet them.
This weekend, Harper had her first slumber party at Grandy and Honey's house. My dinner club has a progressive dinner party each year and our house was appetizers and dinner. Harper didn't want to stick around for all of that boring adult stuff so she packed her bags and headed out for the night. She had a brief 15 minute meltdown but otherwise did great. She slept like a champ for her grandparents and woke up giggling and happy. I'll try to post pictures from the progressive dinner...well, at least the ones from the beginning of the night. I'll save some embarrassment to everyone and Dance Party USA might not make it on the blog!
I should be taking more pictures but we have a slew of holiday festive wear in Harper's closet. We've been switching into different Christmas gear every day - here's Harper modeling some of her sparkle wear.
Yesterday we had a Christmas play date with two of Harper's best friends, Field and Anabelle, and her new friends McClain and Hudson. Unfortunately, McClain was napped out when we got the group photo together and Hudson isn't set to arrive until next week. That's okay though - the group is headed to see Santa on Thursday so hopefully we'll get another group shot then...well, minus Hudson.
Field was into that bow. But then again, that's what I get for making my daughter a bow head.
I wanted to share one of my best Christmas presents this year - a shrinking omphalocele! Look at the size of that sucker! It started at about the size of a grapefruit and now looks about like a kiwi. The pretty new skin is showing through and the only original scab is the dark area which was her umbilical cord. This is hanging on by a thread and should fall off any day now. I'm one proud mama!
We have lots of visitors coming for the holidays over the next two weeks but we'll miss Uncle Brentie who is headed to Bali tomorrow for the holidays. I hope he brings us back a suntan - we'll miss you Brent!
