Day 5

Dear Harrison,

Today you are 5 days old...what an amazing 5 days it has been.

We are home and getting settled into our routine.  Our first night was a bit long, but we will figure it all out.  Last night was better thanks to Aunt Brooke's amazing swaddling technique.  Dad and I got more sleep and your grandmother helped take care of you.  You just woke us up twice while she was changing your diaper.  I fed you at 1am and got you out and swaddled by 135am and you slept until after 5am.  That makes your Momma happy!

Yesterday you had your first photo session with Aunt BK and you were a pro through the hours we spent posing you in the super warm rooms in our house and outside, which was your first time to take in summer air and your heard your first airplane fly over and I think you are going to love being outdoors my sweet boy. (We are sorry Brooke for soiling some of your props)

The photos can be found here.

These next photos are from your nursery.  Your Dad and I thought long and hard about your room.   The inspiration is Willie Wonka (Gene Wilder's WW) Your Dad worked so hard on the "lickable" wallpaper over your crib and the pipe shelf on the wall above your dresser.  Every detail we talked over the 9 months you were growing in my belly and we are thrilled to have you finally in the place you will sleep, grow, and poop!  We think you will grow to love it.

































Thank you sweet little man for coming into our lives.  My life changed on 08.10.12.  (I promise to tell you more about that day soon)  Also thank you showing me a love that makes me want to smile, cry and boast so proudly...the love of my little family.  Watching your Dad these first days of your life have brought out a fierce love.  I am forever grateful to you for showing me that.  I promise to love you always and show you, in the way I love your father, how wonderful life is.  I pray you have this one day and so much more (but not until you are at least 30!)









Until next time, your Dad and I will be loving you more than we thought possible.  You have us wrapped around your little finger.

I love you,
Momma


**Thank you everyone for your love, support and well wishes.  I have many emails to answer and I promise to answer them all soon.

And Harrison misses my kisses. He said so.

Jen - that would be an amazing gig! I do not fancy myself any sort of interior designer but I sure would give that a try if it was possible.

And Harrison told me that too...
