Cuddle Buddies






Halen and Liam like to roll around together. Well, Liam doesn't roll yet, but he likes for his brother to.

Bath Time





Liam likes going for a swim in the bath with his big brother! It reminds him of that warm and cozy womb! It's funny how almost every atom in my body is more than ready to get out of this trailer park, every part except the sentimental mommy who wants to keep the bathtub where Liam was born. I love that I can be reminded of that wonderful night (as hard as it was) every time I take a bath. Gotta go. The baby needs the mommy.

!!!Merry XMAS!!!






Halen really racked up this year and we only got him one thing, which we said was from Santa! My dad, aunt, and grandma all sent tons of stuff! He's got a new train table, an easel, and a new set of wheels. He got some cute clothes and small toys too. We all got a white Christmas, which was pretty cool. None of the snow stuck, but there were big beautiful snowflakes for a good while. Now it's just rain again. Oh well, it was pretty while it lasted.

I Did It!


Today, I successfully put them both down for a nap. Why is that cutest thing ever?

Still Sleepy



Since Dan has gone back to work, Halen has not been napping. Some days I manage to get him down, but usually it's an impossible feat while also tending to Liam. Both of these boys are accustomed to lots of mommy attention and need it to go to sleep. Nap time has turned into movie time. I bet I've seen Dumbo more times than any of you! It's Halen's new favorite. Liam is already growing up, staying awake longer, and reacting to noises and such. Well, it's not exactly growing up, but knowing that he is the last baby we're having makes all these little things seem more important. I'm posting a pic of Halen at about the same age Liam is today, and one of Liam today. I think they're going to look alot alike.

The Big TWO!!!






Halen is two today! He's the coolest two year old on the block, with his own iMac. He also got a little mini baking set, since he likes to help me cook so much. We're baking his cake right now. I can't wait to eat it. I hope it's good. It's a gluten free mix. I don't think I've mentioned that Halen is gluten intolerant. Not extremely, but gluten and peanuts give him eczema. It got pretty bad and irritating for awhile. We're hoping he grows out of it. Most kids grow out of food allergies by the time they're 3. One more year! Anyway, happy birthday to Halen.

Liam Close Ups



I am starting to feel like internetting again, but I'm still not ready to write a big birth story. I do want to though, because the homebirth was an amazing experience. So, hold on, it's coming, eventually. Sleep and baby bonding are just more important right now.

Liam!!!






Well the day has finally arrived. Liam Hawkins Harrison joined the world at 2:10 a.m. Dec. 8 2007. He tipped the scales at 9lbs.6oz. and was 22" long. He looks a lot like Halen did when he was brand new. Christy is worn out from the labor. Halen is stoked to have a baby around and I am just psyched in general. Everything went smoothly and it was a great experience doing it at home. Somehow Christy managed to wait till I was done with finals and get him out before Oma and Opa left. Something like a 12 hour window.

Christmas Tree




My aunt and uncle are in town. They got us a beautiful Christmas tree and all the decorations and lights to go on it too! Halen is stoked! He keeps moving the ornaments around. I love the smell.
Dan is done with one final. He finishes two more today. We're up early because he's finishing a paper and I'm making muffins for his class. Weird huh? I guess I love the guy.
oops. never published this. going to bed now.
p.s. i think i'm most definitely in the early stages of labor.

No Snow

It started to snow this morning, big beautiful snowflakes. Halen and I got all bundled up and went outside to find nothing but cold wet rain. It had passed, but it was too late to go back inside. Halen prefers the outdoors, even when it's cold and wet. So, we played Bruce and Halen's favorite game, it's called "Bruce's Car."
