Two Month Check-Up!

We just got back from Harrison's two month check-up. He did amazing! He talked to the nurses and did not fuss at all for the doctor as she poked and prodded all over him. He was given a clean bill of health along with several remarks of how advanced he is. She said his level of alertness, talking, and motor skills are more along the lines of a four month old! We already know this is some special guy, but it was nice to hear it from his pediatrician too!

Harrison's Stats-
Height: 22 inches
Weight: 12 1/2 pounds
Head Circumference: 15 inches
On my way to my first check-up!
The doctor checking me out and I'm telling her all about everything I know!

Making sure I can track with my eyes- of course I can, but I played along with her game.
I took my shot bravely! I did cry, but I'm happy now and showing mom what a tough guy I am. But what was that nurse thinking? She gave me a silver glitter band-aid!
I'm a man-give me something more manly!

Feeling Better and Growing Up

Harrison is feeling better and back on the move, well, he wants to be! He is laughing and talking more and more every day. We are having a blast with our little guy! His new favorites are watching daddy shave every morning, playing peekaboo (well, watching us play peekaboo!), and he is fascinated watching us eat- he just stares at us putting the forks and spoons in our mouths then he smacks his lips! So soon he will be eating solids himself! He is growing fast!

Taking a nap with Dad one of the days we were both sick.

I love looking out the window! Being outside and looking outside are my favorites!

My handsome face- I know how to ham it up for the camera!

That's a funny joke mom!
I have the best laugh in the whole world-(that's what mom and dad think)
My bumbo seat rocks! I think I am all grown up when I get to sit in it! I am Mr. Independent already!

I Don't Feel Good

Harrison has his first cold! He is so brave though. Even when he can't breath because of the congestion or coughing he tries to smile and talk to us. He is our sweetheart! We have spent countless time sitting in the bathroom with the hot shower running, or just cuddling with our little guy. Those of you who know Harrison's personality know that this guy does not regularly cuddle! His daddy is also sick. It seems Harrison not only looks like his dad, likes to play with his dad, and talk to his dad, he also likes to do everything just like dad- include get sick at the same time! Get well soon my handsome men!

It's hard to breath and suck my pacifier at the same time- I'm trying to be sweet, but it sometimes frustrates me!
Trying to still talk to mom and give her a little smile.

That's it! I've had enough of this sick business!

Finally asleep after two baths (because of spit-up), three outfit changes (also due to spit-up), two hours of walking the halls with mom, hearing all of the songs mom and dad know how to sing, one dose of Tylenol, 2 vaporizer refills, and a few of my own protests!

We are so blessed with our happy and handsome little man. Here is a glimpse into Harrison's week six.

Sleeping- a growing boy needs his rest!
More sleeping- this time in my new booster chair at the table with Mom and Dad

Awake, finally, in my chair. Waiting patiently while Mom and Dad eat breakfast
Smiling at my goofy Mom
Laughing at my goofy mom-the more I laugh, the goofier Mom gets!

Road Trip!

Saturday we went back to Matt's graduate school's 2009 graduation. Matt had a lot of friends graduating. Harrison did great on this road trip! He had to sleep and eat in very different and some odd places, but he was so laid back and thouroughly "oooed and ahhhed" over by all of Matt's friends and former professors. In daddy's journal office at his old school
watching the graduation recessional in my stroller

Playing with Daddy at the restaurant after lunch

Meeting mom & dad's friends; then having to say goodbye- we will miss you guys!

Getting sleepy while we watch the sunset

Sweet dreaming of my busy day on the way home!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, and friends. We love you! Our blessing to you is the same blessing my mom prayed over each of us every night-

May the Lord bless you and keep you;

May the Lord make His face to shine upon you

and give you peace.

Styles & Smiles

Yesterday Mimi and the aunts came to visit. We had such a good time! Harrison loves the extra attention! He got cuddled and loved on, so he was very happy!

Harrison started smiling today! Here he is smiling and "talking" to Aunt Erin.

"Talking" to Mimi

My aunts dressed me all up handsome! I'm ready to go to work with Dad!
