The First 3 Months

As cliche as it sounds; how has it been 3 months since Harrison was born??? Seriously, time is so weird. The days are long but the months are fast.

Garrett and I had set out on this journey of having a 2nd child saying we wanted another kid, not a baby. We would deal with the baby stage. We didn't think we were fans of the baby stage. Connor was so difficult as a newborn that we thought we would just be in survival mode. I'm pleased to say that we are thoroughly enjoying the newborn stage this time. Harrison is such a different baby than Connor was. I feel rested most of the time & I don't feel emotionally drained from the constant soothing during the day. He even sleeps in his own bed (for the most part).

Breastfeeding is going well; too well actually. We've tried giving him bottles but he'll just freak out after a half an ounce or so. For the most part this is fine. I don't work outside the home but I would like to get out on my own for a few hours every now & then.

Connor adores his little brother. I can't wait to see them actually play together.

Here are a few photos of our first 3 months for those of your who haven't seen them on facebook.

I love this little guy so much, just like I love his brother. I'm so glad I don't live far away so I will get to see them more often.
