One Month Old

Weeks 1-4

Is Harper really a month old today?! It's hard to believe! It's exciting but sad at the same time to watch her grow into the sweet girl she is. We love her SO much and wouldn't know what to do without her! We have done so much this past month and I can't wait to see what next month has in store. We love you Harper!!

At a month old....

 *Still wearing your newborn clothes (I think you will still be wearing these for a few more weeks)
*Still in newborn diapers 
*You eat 3.5 ounces every 3 hours during the day (when you were born you went from 1 ounce to 3 ounces in a matter of a week or so. We thought you were going to be a big eater but you have kept around 3-3.5 ounces for 2.5 weeks or so)
*You love for us to hold you and just walk around! You just look and look!
*You seem to be a good sleeper:) Momma LOVES this!! You sleep 3-4 hours at a time...wake around 1ish and 4-5ish. We try to follow a schedule and that has helped so much!!
*You went on your first walk March 10 and your second walk the next day:) Of course you slept!
*You don't mind bath time
*1 week follow up you weighed 7 pounds 6 ounces
*2 week follow up you weighed 7 pounds 14 ounces (mom and dad took bets on your weight and momma was right on!)
*We went on our first adventure to the mall, Texas Roadhouse, Target and to see one of your new friends Alayna Claire that was born last week-end! I think I over booked us. lol. You did GREAT but we were so tired when we got home. 
* You went to church the first time on March 16th and slept the entire time.
*You don't like to get dressed....when we change your clothes you just scream. We try to go fast!
*You love to smile after you get done eating! It's the sweetest!
* You got to go to your shower on March 15th

Harper's Shower

Last weekend we had Harper's shower! I was so looking forward to it and everyone being able to meet her! It was a lot of work and this momma was tired afterwards but I loved every minute of it! Jarod brought Harper towards the middle of the shower so she could sleep and eat before coming. But, she still slept majority of the time. Party popper. lol. She stole the spotlight when she arrived and was eating it up;) 

My world 


With my sweet girl:)

I love it:)

One of the centerpieces I made. Most of the decorations I made during our "wait". It helped pass the time and anything crafty I LOVE doing!

Some of the gifts

With one of my best friends!

Eat time!

Some of my good friends from high school and college

My parents or g-ma and g-pa:)

The aftermath! It was so fun going through everything! Harper sure did get spoiled with this shower! I had been looking forward towards this day and it went by way too fast. It was so much fun though...and a little tiring with a newborn. But wouldn't trade a thing in the world for all that has started with our little girl:)

We are a family of THREE

I have a BIG announcement!!! We are a family of THREE (plus Khloe:)) Now!!!!!!!
We have a little GIRL!!
We can't believe it!
Harper was born a couple weeks ago and we are beyond excited!!!!
We have been getting settled pretty well and adjusting just fine to being mommy and daddy these past couple weeks:) Harper is such a sweetheart and we just LOVE her to pieces! You will be seeing LOTS of pictures! Be prepared! 
Our prayers have been answered and our dreams have come true. She weighed 7 pounds 11 ounces and 20.5 inches long. She is perfect and the most beautiful little girl!

I would have posted sooner but I debated back and forth quite a bit about staying public or going private. For now I decided to keep my blog public but I won't put a ton of details on here until a couple months later. I won't be shy on the pictures though:)

At the hospital

Our neighbors put balloons out to welcome our little girl:)
