Small Harrison update

Hi everyone! Thanks for all the well wishes. Especially to Becky for being so nice to post for me.

I'm kinda tempting fate by posting here, since the hospital wi-fi goes out all the time, but I thought I'd try and give you a short update. I adore this boy of mine. He was worth every single second of complaining, overdueness and uncomfortableness. He's only been here for two days and I can't imagine how I've lived without him all my life. I felt this way with the girls too, but it is a bit different. He's different and most likely I'm different too. Older, wiser, lamer...something. I was up until 4am with him Friday morning. We just chilled in bed and gazed at each other. Just getting to know each other better. Logan snored away and I could have cared less. At one point the nurse came in and she was like, this is so wrong. I told her, nah it's by choice. Plus, I'm a night owl and Logan is an early riser, so the baby wake up and eat at crazy times has always worked out okay for us. I wasn't going to sleep in the hospital at all anyway.

And plus, I had to stare at my son. My son, so strange to say, but so awesome.

I know, I sound like a crazy in love fool. That's okay, cause I am. What's that song, I'm in love with a boy? That is me, I'm in love with a boy. And his name is Harrison. Harrison Thomas. He was up almost all of the first night, but I was too. Some kind of weird adrenaline thing. Yesterday he slept and ate all day and last night he slept and slept, I had to wake him up to eat. He is a mellow baby; only crying when a nurse screws with him. Oh and when he gets changed, but that is mostly due to the circumcision (yeah I know, blah, blah, blah...I let Logan decide and Harrison is fine) he had done yesterday. But he settles down really easy. Bailey was a pretty mellow baby (but not a sleeper), but Harrison is the winner. No clue if it will last, but it's really nice. He has jet black hair, which is funny because he gets that from my father-in-law. It's a strong gene, all of Logan's family has black hair, except for him. We were shocked when neither of the girls had it. But Harrison does; it's black and straight (Thought it was curly, until I washed his head, because they hadn't done a great job on it. When it dried, it wasn't curly anymore.) and sticks up in the middle like a mohawk.

I will tell you all the birth story in the next few days, when I have more time. Also, I'll post some better pictures when I am out of this place and can take some better ones. The light in here are horrible and I keep getting really yellowy shots. Since he's not jaundice at all, I don't really want everyone to think he is.

Look at the size of his feet. He is going to be a giant one day.

He has Bailey's cheeks and Morgan's chin; my eyes and feet and Logan's nose, ears and eyebrow wrinkles. But he has all of our whole hearts.

Oh Issa, he is just beautiful.

After Tyle was born, I did the same thing just sat in bed and snuggled her - knowing that she is my last I really wanted to savor her newborness.

I can't wait to see more of the little guy and do the girls just adore him?

Congratulations, lady. He is one handsome young man for sure. And with those feetsies he's sure to need lots and lots of shoes. And I'm thinking he's already wondering where his burrito is. hehe

So cute! Look at that head of hair. WOAH!!
