Luke Alexander Harris

Luke Alexander Harris came into this world on December 1, 2015 at 11:35 am. He was 7 lbs 8 oz and 20.5" long.  Delivery and recovery are going well for mommy.  Big brother Andrew is doing okay.  Big adjustment for him.  Daddy is doing good.  He was able to take two weeks off and then he will head back to work.  My parents were able to come up this weekend and will go home on Monday.  They will be back the Saturday before Christmas and stay for the whole week.  My sister will also be coming with them.  A little sad that my pregnancy is over since this is our last child.  Two kids are good for us!  I see a lot of sporting events and wrestling in our future!  So thankful and blessed that Luke is finally with us!  Thanks to everyone for your prayers, gifts, food, phone calls and texts!

Here is a link to some pictures of Luke:

Pregnancy and Nursery Update

38 weeks today! Had baby appointment and sonogram yesterday.  The sonogram lady checked everything out and pretty much said everything was going great.  All the organs were in great shape, heart good, bladder good, lungs good, baby is head down but not in the canal yet.  Doctor said I was dilated 3 cm so we are just waiting for the baby to drop.  The baby can come any day now!

Overall, the pregnancy has gone pretty good.  The only real problem I've had this time around are my hips.  Sleeping comes and goes.  I get spurts of 2-3 hours of sleep a night.  Usually I wake up to turn over to the other side AND go to the bathroom.  This going to the bathroom every hour or every time I stand up is getting old too.  The pregnancy will be over soon and we will be holding our son!

The last month of pregnancy with Andrew went by super slow but this pregnancy has gone by really fast.  Can't believe Thanksgiving is this week and then the baby will be here soon!  For Thanksgiving, we will be going over to Matt's parents house in Minneola.  Doctor said I need to be less than 2 hours from the hospital.  I will probably still do a little Black Friday shopping even though everyone doesn't want me too.  Might make the baby come sooner and people are a little nicer towards pregnant women.

37 weeks

I finished up the nursery last weekend and it turned out great! Love the animals and so does Andrew.

Went with a jungle/animal theme.  Bassinet, crib, changing table and rocker all kept from Andrew's pregnancy.

Painted the animals all by myself!  Pretty proud of myself.

Crib and bassinet ready for the baby.

Need to find another curtain to match.

Winnie the Pooh corner

Hospital bag packed and ready to go.  Probably too much stuff in there and not going to use half of it.

Closet is stocked and ready for baby Harris.  Thanks to everyone that gave and sent gifts! Very thankful!

Found the little lamp downstairs.  I can turn this on at night instead of the main light.  Don't want to blind the little guy.

Can't wait to meet him!

KC trip with Grandpa and Grandma Harris

Towards the end of October, Butch and Sandy (Matt's parents) made a trip up to Kansas City.  Andrew and I also went with them.  Butch wanted to watch a couple of Royals postseason games.  We went up and spent the first night at Mike and Stephanie's.  The next day we ran some errands and met my dad for lunch.  Since we didn't have a car, my dad drove us to their house.  We watched the Royals game there and spent some time with my family.

Aunt Stephanie cut my hair!

Playing some baseball in the backyard.

The next day we took our time getting around.  My mom took us back over to Mike and Stephanie's house.  Mitch and the kids came over to watch the Royals game while Butch and Mike went to the game.

Sunday morning before we left, we went to watch Preston play some hockey.

After that we hit the road.  Butch and Sandy needed to be back for doctors appointments the next day.

Stopped at Spangles for lunch!

Goofy kid!

It was nice seeing family since I knew we wouldn't be back till after the baby was born.

We love going to the park!

One weekend we went to the 3i show.  Tractor

After the 3i show, we went to the pumpkin patch to pick out some pumpkins.

Fun with Grandma

One cute kid!

Didn't really want to take a picture with mommy.

Picked out a pumpkin for each of the family members! Including the baby!

Being silly with mommy!
