Little tarheel

Harrison has gotten to go to two basketball games with us (and nana) this year. He's gone ahead and decided he's gonna go to school here one day. My name is Harrison and yes, I am a tarheel.


Love this little guy in jammies. So cute.

Blizzard 2013

Even though we only got about an inch of ice a few weeks ago, it was the perfect occasion to bust out the snowsuit someone passed down to H. I may have left him in the ice to snap a pic once he fell.

Some important milestones the past few months...

-walking! I'd say that's a pretty big one :) he started taking a few steps in September but was cruising by late October. Right at his "supposed-to-be" birthday. I cried tears of joy over this sweet milestone. And now he is running everywhere!

-in December he finished his physical therapy!! Ok I cried at this milestone too. We knew he was almost done but to hear her say, "he looks great, he doesn't need me anymore" was music to our ears. Here is a pic of H with his pt Susan (she was great but one story that cracks me up is her last visit she called him Michael. Haha huh?!)

-talking so much! Well, a lot of it is still babbling. But some things he is saying lately: mama, dada (been saying those for awhile), blocks, look, bath, book, juice, socks, tickle, peek a boo

-he's also been repeating animal sounds some. Him roaring like a lion, buzzing like a bee and hissing like a snake is so funny

-ok I haven't posted many stats because he's still small and catching up and i try not to compare him to others (which is hard for me not to do). But just so ill remember later- at 18 months now he is 19 lb 10 oz. So close to 20 lbs finally!

-he's right on track for his development for his REAL age, not adjusted. Thankful.

-the last month he's been better at trying more foods (whew, it's taken awhile). He loves Mac and cheese, grilled cheese, regular cheese (lovin the cheese just like his mama), pizza, tater tots, pretty much any fruit, waffles and just any carbs really. He's slowly embracing lunch meat and hot dogs and occasionally chicken tenders. Oh yea he loves yogurt too. And any dessert, duh

-he's learned body parts lately and cracks us up showing off what he knows. He can point to his eyes (but usually he just squints which is adorable!) ears, nose, hair, hands, toes and bellybutton.

-he loves reading books. He goes and grabs one and comes up and crawls in your lap. Love it

-other activities he's into these days (18 mo): building blocks, playing in the bath, taking things in and out of baskets, helping mom with laundry, peek a boo, running back and forth down the hall. Here he is getting busted after dumping out all his baskets of clothes.

What a joy to see this sweet boy grow!

Handsome guy

Harrison got some pretty cute outfits for Christmas. I know, he's a guy, I'm not supposed to call them outfits. But he doesn't read the blog so we're good :) What a cutie. Be still my heart...

Christmas 2012

Thanks to this blogger app I just got (and my BFF for telling me about it!) I'm hoping to update more often. And here comes some catch up posting. So lets recap Christmas first!

It was such a fun Christmas! Harrison was 17 months old and at such a fun age for opening gifts and getting excited about new toys. Last year he was just sleeping through it all!

We spent Christmas Eve and Christmas morn with my dad and stepmom and that side of the fam. After lunch we headed to my mom's to celebrate with that side of the family. We had a great time with family laughing, opening gifts and eating great food. H got a desk, building blocks, puzzles, a tunnel to crawl through and a bowling set (to name a few!) Here are a few pics, wish I would've gotten more to capture the day!

Harrison checking out dancing Santa at Lowe's. Not impressed.

His fav ornament on our tree, a sock monkey! 

Sorry so small, but us and Nana at a big ol' tree downtown in Charlotte
