Family of 5!
I am currently sitting on the couch alone...well with the boy but he's sleeping! Jake, took the girls over to his buddy's house to watch the Chiefs game and so they could play with his buddy's 2 toddlers...Owen and Maci!
Our transition into a 5 person family has actually gone pretty smooth. We both had a harder time with going from 1 child to 2. I'm not sure if I'm speaking too soon but, I know everyone will survive.
My mom and Jake have been a tremendous help! I stayed upstairs for the first 3 days, which got antsy but it was so good for me to really rest and bond with Harper.
Ta and Kamy love Harper. Ta alway's wants to hold him and Kamy alway's wants to kiss and hug him. We tried to get Kamy to say "Harper" and "Brother" before he was born but, she wouldn't. She ended up saying it for the first time when she saw him.
Harper, is doing really well. He can pretty much sleep through anything...I mean anything but, I guess thats how the 3rd child survives with 2 older siblings...screaming, talking, crying, holding, touching, kissing...etc etc all day long! He's a champ and oh so precious and handsome. Right now he has dark hair, dark blue eyes (those might change) darker skin..and we think he will be tall because he was 21.5 inches long. Jake's dad was 21.5 inches at birth and was 6'3. The height skips a generation.
I have posted a few pics of the girls and nana meeting there brother. The girls stayed at nana's house all day Wed, Wed night and came home Thurs afternoon to meet Harper. They made Harper a build-a-bear a few weeks back and gave it to him when they met him for the first time and Harper gave the girls pink balloons and princess chocolate! They also made T-shirts before he was born that said "big sister 1" and "big sister 2" and wore them on Thursday!
