Harrison Robert was born at 7:47 am on Friday, April 25th, weighing 7 pounds, 15 ounces, and measuring 21 inches long. He has a head full of blonde hair and came out alert and making his presence known to anyone within a 5-mile radius. ;)
He has done a phenomenal job with nursing so far and loves to be snuggled by his momma and watch Braves games with his daddy.
Two of the most precious moments of my life came shortly after his delivery:
With our families anxiously awaiting the news in the waiting room, my hub went out to tell Banks, first, that we had a boy so that he could then be the one to make the big announcement. My hub videotaped Banks' reaction to finding out he had a brother and his huge smile and excitement were absolutely priceless.
The second moment I'll never forget is when my hub brought Banks and Raleigh back, alone, to meet Harrison for the first time. The second they walked in the room and Raleigh saw her little brother, she smiled from ear-to-ear and immediately started saying, "I love you! I love you!" My heart melted, and I became a puddle of love on the floor at that point. Both Banks and Raleigh couldn't wait to hold Harrison and my heart has never been happier.
Although he has been here just a few days, I can no longer imagine my life without my sweet Harrison, and I will certainly do my very best to treasure all of the last "first" moments I'll have with him, the little boy I've been waiting for my whole life to complete our family.
Welcome to the world, my precious Harrison. We simply adore you.
