The Baby Bump

I have barely posted about my pregnancy and honestly I can not even believe how fast this pregnancy has gone by. I am due in just 2 days!!! We are so excited to meet baby Harrison and welcome him into our family :-) Since I have not posted belly pictures I thought I would take this opportunity to post some from the past few months.....

The girls have been so great preparing for their little brother :-) They only refer to him as "Baby Harrison" which is so cute!!! They help me rub lotion on my belly and give kisses to it all of the time. Brooklyn is learning how to say her prayers on her own and as she prays for each one of us she includes baby Harrison too, which was so adorable!! I thought that she didn't really understand that there is actually a baby in there but she obviously understands more than I realized. Olivia has had a countdown everyday until my due date and often talks about all of things she is going to do with her little brother when he gets here.

We recently went on a hospital tour to get a better look at where I will be delivering because this time it will be a whole new experience in another state. The hospital is beautiful and the tour made me anxious to have the baby. I love being pregnant and I so look forward to the delivery. The girls also went to a sibling class at the hospital (in March) where they learned all of the roles of an older sibling and how to take care of the baby. It was a really cute class and the girls enjoyed it.

Since I am such a slacker these days on the Blog scene I figured I would post pictures from a couple holidays together...

This year on Valentine's Day we celebrated the day of love by hanging out at home eating heart-shaped foods, playing with some little presents we bought the girls, & meeting Brian for dinner after his day at school.  I had fun spending the day with my Valentines and sharing their love.  <3 <3 <3 

This year on St. Patrick's Day we had so much fun!!!  We started off the day by giving the girls their St. Patrick's Day books before heading to the hospital for a sibling class.  The girls were so cute at the class where they learned how to care for their new sibling on the way.  The class taught them how to help change diapers, what their responsibilities are as big sisters, & they also got to take a tour of the nursery :-)  After the class we went to GG & Papa's house for a St. Patrick's themed family game night.  We enjoyed playing games with the family and eating a delicious dinner together.
