It has been awhile since I posted so I am going to try to fill you in on all the amazing events already surrounding Harrison's quickly approaching birthday! Last week I had a blast because I was able to go back and visit where I used to work. I was able to spend some time catching up with friends and just visiting with everyone there. I feel so blessed because while I was there they spoiled me with a pizza and salad lunch and had bought gifts for Harrison! He got some very cute little sleepers and onsies, and blankets, and his bumbo seat tray. I can't wait to see him sitting in it in a few months! Then the Dr. I nursed for gave Harrison a big surprise! As Matt said, Harrison has his first set of wheels! Doesn't it look cool? He will be one hot little man riding around!
On Saturday my Aunt Cindy and Aunt Sarah threw me a baby shower! It was the neatest time because it was all the women in the family- all the aunts, great aunts, grandma's, great grandma's, and cousin's. It was a heart themed party and everyone wore red and I got a beautiful corsage! My aunts put a lot of thought and effort into every little detail. They fixed the most wonderful foods and desserts which of course Harrison loved the sugar overload! We played games- one where I had to change a baby doll's diaper blind folded! Let's just say I don't recommend that on a real baby! I heard I would have dislocated the baby's hip and gotten peed on! Then I was even more in awe as I stared opening gifts! He will be a very stylish little man in all the amazing outfits, shirts, sleepers, pullovers, and jeans he has received from my style conscience family members! He also got his first bathing suit complete with flip-flops for this summer. Some of my aunts bought him this really neat swing! It makes all kinds of soothing water noises like waves and a fountain! It relaxes me to listen to! I think Harrison will like it.
He also now has his bedroom complete!!! The aunts, great aunts, cousins, and grandma's all went in together and got him his sports bedding! It is the most perfect thing ever! I could hardly contain my excitement to get home and put it on his crib! So for your viewing pleasure I will present a tour of Harrison's room!
Harrison and I had our midwife appointment yesterday and everything looks awesome she said. He is head down and engaged, growing fast and has a nice strong heart. When she went to feel him and his position he shifted over and put his rear end in the air and we all had a laugh at the cutest little bump sticking up through my tummy! She said we should go ahead and have the hospital bags organized to go just so we will be ready when it's time! It is hard to believe we have five weeks to go!
Harrison we love you so much and can't wait to see you!!!
