And baby makes three

The most amazing announcement, as most of you already know :

Beautiful little Reese Mae Harris was born on 3/23/12 at 7:20am.

She is completely healthy, 19 in. long and weighed in at 6 pounds 13 oz.

I was in labor from around 9:30pm until push time around 6:30am. More on that later ; )

We already can’t get enough of the following:

      
 Her soft cuddly feet.
 Her big smiles while she’s sleeping. 
Watching her while she’s milk drunk.
Her wide eyes looking right at us. 
Starring at her and dreaming about who she is going to become. 
Laughing our brains out about how much this little girl can poop! 
Her amazing Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles, and Cousins loving on her. 
 How she loves raising her hands in the air. 
Letting her in on families inside jokes.
Our nightly family beach walks.
The honesty Drew and I have been embracing during this life changing journey.  
And lastly, a countdown.
10 pm in the evening. The time Reese decides to wake up for the “day.”
9 Number of minutes it takes me to change a baby poop diaper. Slow poke.
8 The number of diapers we change in a single day. 
How many loads of baby laundry we do each day. Literally.
6 How many times a minute we tell her we love her. 
5 Number of times I have cried in the past week. 
4 How many days it took me to change out of my jammies. 
3 Seconds. The time it took me to fall head over heels in love with her. 
2 pm. The time I eat breakfast. 
1 day..she will grow up 😦 
Be present. Take in each moment, it will be long gone before you know it.
