Harper at 3 months!

Harper is almost 3 months old (in 2 days officially).  The day he turned 12 weeks we were in the hospital ER running fever and looking for infections with an elevated white blood cell count...absolutely no fun and completely scary for a first time mommy (or any mommy for that matter).  In all of that we measured and weighed and my baby has grown so much!!

Weight: 14 pound 10 ounces
Height: 25 inches

He is going to be my monster baby but I would expect no less!  I'm just thankful there was no bacterial infection to be found and we are doing fine now. 

Soon I'll post pictures from our beach vacation!

More catching up!

This is the proud Papa! Already has him on a "big yellow machine"!  He just couldn't wait, even though Harper was sleeping very soundly at the time.
Here is Harper's naturally curly hair.  This is exactly like Dustin's when it is longer.  If we don't comb it out before it dries after his bath, it stays curly and frizzy like this.  It's so cute and makes him look like a different baby completely!
And here is Harper cuddled up after his bath.  After hating to be naked for the first 2 weeks of his life, he enjoys it and his baths now! 
And of course, here is me and my baby.  I love him so much...I wonder how many kisses he gets daily?!? I know he will outgrow that soon so I have to get them in now!

A few of my favorite pictures

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the first 2 months of Harper's life.  I'm still trying to catch up so hopefully I can get his new pictures soon!

So much has happened...

I've been rather lazy on the posting since the arrival of my sweet boy. Today I will post quickly and let you all know on April 1, 2010 at 12:52 p.m. Harper Weston Kothe was born. He was 20 1/4 inches and 7 pounds and 10 ounces. He was born with tons of dark hair and the most precious thing in the world. Since then we lived two months and learned so much from him. Here are a few pictures from his arrival and other select ones. He is my greatest accomplishment and I never knew I could love someone this much!!

I promise to update more and post more pictures soon!
