Harrison : 08 Months

This was a month of first’s. You got your first two teeth (on the bottom). You said Mama for the first time (I will forever be glad that at least one of my two kids said Mama first). You are THISCLOSE to crawling but somehow still manage to get yourself around a room - I suspect a bit of scooting when no one is looking. You also got your first flu shot - and I didn’t even realize she had given it to you because you didn’t make a peep. I think it’s possibly those massive thighs of yours - couldn’t even feel it.

It’s been a great month.

Harrison : 07 Months

I can't stop thinking about how different of a baby you are these days.  From the first 5 or so months of your life to now, it's like we have a completely different baby living with us.  And let me tell you, we're all so much happier these days - you included.  You're a HAPPY baby now.  We even have strangers stop us, you give them that incredible grin you have, and they remark about what a happy baby you are.  And finally, I'm able to say "yes, he is".  Plus, we just have a lot of people stopping us to tell you how beautiful you are.  It's those big blue eyes man, so much like your brothers.  Between the two of you, you guys are always turning heads when we're out.

Harrison : 06 Months

Oh sweet buddy, this last month was SO MUCH BETTER.  It's like you're a new baby.  Like we're a new family.  We're all so much happier because... YOU SLEEP NOW!  Granted, you still aren't sleeping through the night, but sometimes we get six or seven hour stretches and it's like I don't even know what to do with myself.

Harrison : 05 Months

Well, this wasn't quite as good a month as we had hoped.  Towards the end of the month we FINALLY got your belly issues resolved after having been on medicine most of the month.  But we're still working through an issue with your legs while you're sleeping.

Harrison : 04 Months

I know you aren’t supposed to wish away time in your baby’s life because it all goes so quickly - but I think we can all agree that we’d be okay with forgetting this past month ever happened.  It was another rough one.  Really rough.  There were a lot of tears throughout the month and they weren’t all from you.

Harrison : 03 Months

Today you have been in our lives for three months but it feels like a lifetime.  I won't lie, this has been another really hard month BUT things seem to be slowly improving.  Or, at least we can hope.  We may have finally figured out your belly issues and you're slowly starting to sleep more and more.

Harrison : 02 Months

Oh what a month it has been.  Things have been rough this month.  Really rough.  You seem to hate sleeping and don't do it often which has lead to a very tired household for us all, and of course, a lot of frustration.  (And apparently your brother also went through this at the same age.)  It seems you're often two babies - the one who is very sweet and starting to coo and smile, and then the one who fights sleep at every turn and because of that gets overly tired and fussy.

Harrison : 01 Month

Four weeks ago you leisurely entered our lives.  You were screaming, red, and perfect.  And now, a month later, not much has changed.  I won't lie, it's been quite the month of adjustment for all of us.  In general, you're a very calm, contented baby.  But in the last week or two you've run into some digestive issues that has you a bit fussier than normal and has Daddy and I more exhausted than normal.  Plus, no one likes to see their baby in pain, especially when you can't tell us what hurts and we can't tell you how we'll fix it.

Henry: 4 Years Old

Today you are four.  I can hardly believe that you have been in our lives for four whole years.  But at the same time, I can't remember life before you, and I don't want to.  You have been such a bright light in our life and I'm thankful every day that I get to be your Mama.
