Last Night

We leave Thursday for our big trip to KS & MN! It's 1 AM and I can't sleep... I'm a little sad because this is the last night we have here at home together. Harold is going to Tennessee tomorrow to surprise a friend and go to his change of command ceremony. Then Thursday it's road trip time! We bought a tablet DVD player (the screen lifts up to put the dvd in) so we can rig it so Harrison can see it in his rear facing car seat. He really dislikes the car- we went out to dinner tonight and he cried the whole way there and home. Hopefully a little "Baby Einstein" will do the trick.

The whole thing is so bittersweet- I'm overjoyed to be getting back to family and friends in MN, but sad about being away from HP for so long. I'm sure it will go by fast, I'll be busy. But the first few weeks will be hard!

Harrison is almost three months old- he coo's A LOT (although really tough to get on camera) and smiles constantly. (well, if he's not hungry or tired that is) Still "going to the gym" as Harold says to kick and squirm like a maniac. He is not a cuddler- he refuses to lay on your chest. While it's a little sad, probably a good thing for the long run. He's not a "hold me" baby. I feel so blessed to have everything in my life the way it is right now. My husband and baby are perfect =)

Can't wait to see a lot of you soon!!


Birthday Week

Harrison is 2 and half months old and we're loving every minute of it! His activity has increased and he loves what I like to call his "workouts"- laying on the floor, kicking and moving his arms furiously. More of his time is spent awake, and he smiles constantly. He's started even smiling to himself!

Harold just got home this week from his month at Fort Lewis. We're enjoying time together before we take off for Kansas & Minnesota.

Harold had his 31st birthday yesterday- we spent the night in, just hanging out with Harrison and watching basketball. I made dinner (which is a rare occurrence). Harold says the 31st birthday is not celebrated, just observed. =) I think he just doesn't want to get any older. Although he did say Harrison gets all the birthday celebrations from now on, which was sweet.

It's going to be a busy couple of weeks coming up, getting ready to leave the house for 6 months. So many things to take care of! I have only started packing a little bit- I'm dreading it quite a bit. But I cannot wait to get to MN and spend time with family and friends!
