Harrisons Three Month Update

So, that was quite a break wasn't it? Totally unexpected, but it's good to be back at it again. I have been super busy lately. There's been so many things to do, but very little time, so that meant that my blog had to take a backseat for a little while. I planned to come back to blogging a week or so ago but I completely lacked any motivation to write up a post. I don't like to rush things, and I certainly wouldn't write a post for the sake of it so that plan went out of the window pretty quickly. I will always, and I mean always blog whenever I want to. I don't know if you noticed but I've said I'll stick to a schedule of maybe 2 days a week, but I've never stuck to that. I have learnt that actually it's okay if I don't, and I've just decided to go with the 'flow', so to speak. I make no promises from now on. You're probably fed up with me apologising for my absence or even explaining why I've been gone, and quite frankly so am I, so yeah, I'm going to stop rambling now, haha. 

You may know that a few months ago I gave birth to my second little boy, Harrison. He is just over four months old now, but I thought I would update you on how he was in month three. I really want to share these monthly updates with you so I can look back on how much he has changed as time has gone by.
It's so strange to think how quickly this year is going by. At three months old Harrison was really starting to come out of his shell. I think it's at that age where you really start to see the personality shine through. He has gone from a beautiful newborn to a little baby who yes, may be a teeny bit clingy at times, but he has the most adorable gummy smile and the cutest laugh. Just looking at that smile and listening to that giggle of his is enough to brighten up my day. You can definitely tell if he's smiling or passing wind now, haha. He is very interactive, making noises and kicking and waving his arms and legs around. He likes to watch every move you make too, literally. He would follow me with his eyes everywhere I went.

When he was born he had jet black hair, but his hair has lightened up overtime, and his hair is of a lighter brown now. It may change again, but we shall see. He also seems to have the same beautiful blue eyes like his daddy and Alfie, but again, that may change. We are still unsure as to how much Harrison weighs, but he has definitely put on a few more pounds since month two, that's for sure. I keep saying we need to get him weighed but we've just never found the time to. He is definitely in the right percentile as he seems to be fitting well into his 3-6 clothes so there doesn't seem to be anything to worry about.

I've been feeling so good in myself. The first month was when I was most sleep deprived but Harrison has come a long way since then. He started settling into a routine where he would wake up every three hours for a bottle or a nappy change, sometimes both. I literally wake up most mornings with a stupid grin on my face, sometimes because I've actually had a lot of sleep, but mainly because I'm waking up with my gorgeous little boy next to me. I don't want to start sounding too soppy now, but it is the best way to wake up.
Being a stay at home mum has had its good moments, and the bad, but I like to think the good outweighs the bad. I mentioned a while back that I quit my job last year to spend more time with Alfie as I just didn't spend as much time with him as I used to and I missed one or two of his first milestones. That hurt me, but I'm glad that I won't be missing anything with Harrison. There's been a lot of things I've learnt being a stay at home mum of two. I can multi task, and I can happily clean up a big two bedroom house while looking after a nearly three year old and three month old baby. It's also made me appreciate Josh a lot lot more. He is at work doing god knows how many hours a week, including overtime to make sure that we have everything we need. I do feel bad that I'm not a working mum, but at the end of the day, time with my kids is more precious than money.

It is so nice seeing my two boys bonding and enjoying each others company. Alfie is such a lovely big brother. He is forever cuddling him, kissing him and reassuring him when he's crying. It must be instinct, it's so sweet, it makes my heart melt. He is starting to become more aware that Harrison is smaller and younger than him and can't do the same things that he can, but he likes to pretend he can. I just can't wait until Harrison is at that age where he can do more things with Alfie. I'm sure they will get on just as well as they are now.
