Our Little Harlow

June 20, 2015

We officially got to meet our sweet little girl June 6th, 2015 at 2:14PM. She arrived weighing 7 pounds 5 ounces and measured 20 inches long. Days have been pretty relaxed over here, filled with nursing, diapers, napping, nursing again and savoring every moment possible in-between and while. I forgot just how much I love the smell of a newborn, we are totally smitten by Harlow.

Being almost two weeks in and I feel like she's growing incredibly fast.  I see her looks slowly changing which makes me all the more anxious.  I'm too aware how quickly it goes and with that comes the pressure to soak it up, every last drop.  Wasn't I just feeling her tiny kicks in the middle of the night? Her constant hiccups and the sound of her heartbeat weekly?  I am so glad she is finally in my arms, but a small part of me misses her too. I know there is a big possibility that this is my last newborn and feeling that makes me sad.

So she's here, she's healthy, she's perfect and she's ours. I literally sometimes cannot believe how blessed I am. Thanks for all the love, we're certainly feelin' it!
