It has been so great to be home this month! Harrison continues to melt my heart and we feel so Blessed to have such a healthy and happy baby. Wow for 6 months of love, joy, and frustration (at times). God is amazing!

Happy Halloween

Harrison's first Halloween weekend was spent in Ohio for Bill's cousins wedding. It was a great weekend with the Nagels! Harrison LOVED being in the pool at the hotel. This was his first time in the pool.

Harrison slept right through the wedding ceremony. It was a beautiful wedding!

My little adorable pumpkin and me....oh I love him!

Up, up and away! Harrison loved looking out the window of the plane with Bill.

5 Months

Harrison continues to bring us such love and joy as he smiles all the time and is rolling over a ton! It was another busy but wonderful month. We survived our first trip to Indiana. When Harrison met Pa Paw for the first time he just laughed and was so sweet.

3 Months

What a very busy and wonderful month! Aunt Jenny and Nana came to visit! This was Aunt Jenny's first trip to Seattle and she really loved seeing the sites but mostly loved loving on Harrison! I have found myself more at ease then ever and truly love watching Harrison as he coos and smiles. God is amazing and life is great!

2 Months

Harrison is 2 months old (as of Saturday). He continues to be the greatest gift from God. I will not lie, it has been the hardest job I have EVER had. He will be sleeping so peacefully and then start to cry so hard that I am always sure he is in great pain. Bill reminds me that this is how Harrison communicates right now and that it does not mean he is in great pain. I am Blessed and so thankful to be Harrison's mom. I love watching Harrison fall asleep as his eyes get so heavy and he will often smile while he is nursing and when he is falling asleep. He will sometimes smile during the day, but it is a work in progress. I am so nervous about him getting his first set of shots tomorrow morning and thankful that Bill's sister is here to go with me. Aunt Rebecca and Uncle Kevin have been a huge help this week and we will miss them! I truly believe that God does not give you too much to handle. However, I continue to feel overwhelmed at night...when Harrison is so fussy...but I know I am not alone.

He is getting so BIG!

I am truly amazed at how fast Harrison is changing and growing. He is such an amazing gift from God. We are all doing very well as we continue to get adjusted. We have been Blessed to have family here now and continuing to come this summer and fall. Right now Bill's mom and dad are visiting. Harrison has had several sleepovers with Grandma and Grandpa (in the guest room and in his swing of course.) Last night was his first night sleeping in his own room in the swing. His newborn clothes are getting too small and we are slowly putting them aside and bringing out the 0-3 months clothes.

Harrison really enjoys making bubbles!

Harrison may have a few more years to go before he can fill Daddy's hat!

Mom came to visit us From June 2-16th. It was so wonderful to have the help and Harrison had his first sleepover in Nana's room. We feels so Blessed to have a wonderful family.

Mom's friend John was also here for a week (he drove here from Indiana- 2,300+ miles!) What a huge help he was in yard and home projects. We are so thankful and appreciative.

3 weeks already

It is so hard to believe that three weeks ago today we welcomed Harrison Robert into our lives. It was a tough and long labor, but yet the greatest and most wonderful experience to have given birth to our son. He weighted 6 lbs 8.7 oz and 19 inches long. We praise God that he is healthy!

Getting ready

Bill and I will be 39 weeks on Friday and we are ready! The pack 'n' play is up and in the living room stocked with diapers, a boppy, burp cloths, and blankets. We have the swing in place, diapers, the hospital bags are packed and the car seat is installed. God is truly amazing and I feel so blessed to becoming a mommy.

I pray for a great delivery, as I have been so Blessed with a great pregnancy. Bill and I are excited for this great adventure ahead of us.

Thank you God for bringing Bill into my life.

37 weeks and Bagel's room

Many thanks and appreciation to Jane and Claudia for giving me a beautiful baby shower with great ladies from church. The cake was so adorable and extremely yummy! Thanks Jane!

I was so excited that Bagel's furniture arrived ahead of schedule. I absolutely love his/her room! Bill and his friends did a wonderful job painting.

32 weeks

Much has happened since my last posting. I have left BBBSPS to begin my journey as a stay at home mom, we have moved into our new home, been to Indiana for wonderful baby showers, and we are are almost settled into the new house. I promise to post pictures soon of the house :) We are 32 weeks as of yesterday and overall I feel great. I have been experiencing some painful hip pain when I stand up and walk. I try to rest during the day with ice and take it slow. But when I gotta do something and be out and about, I try hard to breathe through the pain. God continues to be amazing and I feel very Blessed. Happy Spring!
