Update on our family of 4...

Hello! Things have been a little crazy around the Harris household (as you can imagine). We are still trying to figure out this whole 2 kids thing and trying to rest up every opportunity we get. Finley is a sweet, sweet little baby and Peyton is pretty much the best big brother ever! He is amazingly sweet with Finley and is always asking to hold him or help with him (he likes to help bathe him and always wants to watch diaper changes, etc.). I hope this trend continues and that they become best of friends!!!

Finley is starting to sleep a little better at night now that we've started swaddling him again. He absolutely hates to be swaddled but it is pretty much the only way we can get him to sleep 2 or 3 hour stretches. He is definitely excelling when it comes to eating though! He has gained 2 pounds, 2 ounces since we left the hospital on May 10th! He is going to be a super chunk! He is now 9 lbs, 9 ounces.

We had family portraits done this past week and our photographer, Raye Law, put some previews up on her Facebook. You can see it here.
 I am so excited to see the rest of them!!

Morning Routine

Peyton and I have a pretty solid morning routine. A routine that will certainly be disrupted by the arrival of a certain new family member. Peyton wakes up between 7:45 and 8:15 and I go get him out of bed. He eats his breakfast on the couch (usually oatmeal) while watching his cartoons. I sit with him and eat my breakfast while checking emails/surfing the web on my iPad. We then both get dressed and head outside to play for the morning (usually meeting up with some of the other neighborhood kiddos).

I've been trying to savor this morning routine for the past few days b/c I know everything is soon about to change. It is bittersweet. There really is now way around it. I love Peyton SOOOOOOOOO much and it is hard for me to think that I'm going to soon love another little being just as much. There's a little bit of guilt floating around in my's hard to describe. I almost feel like I'm letting Peyton down a little bit by adding another member to our family. I have treasured the alone time I've had with Peyton and it is hard to to think that it is soon going to change. I honestly don't understand how my heart is going to expand enough to love another little baby....... IMG_5056
