Guess what, guys???? I don’t have to do a 40 week update cause little man joined us in week 39, just as I predicted. Guess my mommy intuition isn’t gone after all. 😉
So without further ado, I introduce to you our newest little guy Boden Maximus Harris born at 11:24 on April 2, 2016. He weighed 7 pounds 2 ounces and was a short 19.5 inches long. He was our shortest little guy but will likely grow like a weed just like his brothers.
Boden is already such a good baby who eats like a champ and is extremely chill (another mommy prediction come true). Even sleeping isn’t too bad (for a newborn) as long as he is right next to me so I really have no complaints so far.
The boys are loving him and Gavin is quickly adjusting to this new big brother role of his. He gives lots of head rubs and kisses to Boden which pretty much just melts my heart to pieces. Logan and Mason have proudly shown him off to all of their classmates via pictures and instantly fight over who gets to hold him first as soon as they get home from school. The kid really isn’t loved or anything. 😉
As for me and Jared….well having fourth kid is like riding a bike. As it was with all of our children, the transition has been smooth and easy. This has never been difficult for us and for that I’m so thankful. Change and transitions, especially involving a newborn can be tough, but we seem to do really well. Jared has already returned to work and after a short 24 hour) hospital stay I wasn’t sure if I would be able to physically handle being by myself so quick (considering I’m not even supposed to lift my giant toddler quite yet) but we did well and Gavin has definitely been super good. We got this thing down! 🙂
Thanks to everyone for the well wishes and sweet posts. It has been such a joy having so many people, many I’ve never even had the pleasure to meet in person, follow our journey and can’t wait to share more growing pains and joys down the road.
Boden’s crazy birth story will be up tomorrow so stay tuned. Happy Wedensday!!!
