Early February 3, we head to the hospital. Ready or not...
Michael loved the outfit he got to wear in the OR. Mine wasn't as glamorous...
Me getting to hold our sweet boy in the recovery room. I cannot begin to tell you how weird a csection felt after having a vaginal birth with Laila. No contractions or hours of labor. Pretty sweet. Being awake for a very real surgery and feeling all sorts of weird tugs and pressure as they safely got my baby out. Pretty weird.
Here is our perfect little boy- Harrison Michael Shields. He was born at 7:22 AM and weighed 7 lbs 2 oz. He also had the longest finger nails I have ever seen and way more hair than his sister. :)
I cannot even begin to describe how DARLING Laila is with her brother "Harr-son" She beams when she sees him and softly touches his head, then kisses him. Absolutely MELTS my heart.
Our family of FOUR:
Loved being able to FaceTime and chat with so many family members. Here's Harrison meeting his cousin, J.
Friday, we came home from the hospital. Many naps followed...
My mom also got into town on Friday. No matter how old I am, it sure feels good to have my mommy nearby.
Harrison is a sweet, calm baby. We love having him home safely with us.
Love these three.
Laila's been pretty patient when it comes to me needing to take care of Harrison. Most of the time, she will snuggle up somewhere close to me and wait while I feed. Or distract herself with a show on the iPad.
Alert and darling.
More kisses for Harrison...
He loves to have a hand by his face.
Can't get enough of his little face
I have the best view. Harrison in my arms, Laila on my legs. It's a good life.
So much love doesn't seem possible!
Feeling very blessed in this house.
