Jones Nathaniel

I'm on my cell phone so this post will be short and sweet, and lacking in pictures unfortunately! But I felt bad waiting one more minute to announce the long awaited arrival of our son, Jones Nathaniel Harrison!!!

Jones (or Jonesy as we just can't help calling him!) was born on Wednesday, April 3rd, at 2:51 p.m. He weighed a hefty but adorable 9 lbs, 7 oz and a loooong 22.5 inches! Tall like his daddy!

I had an absolutely perfect birth experience, and quite frankly loved my c-section! Call me crazy but I found the whole thing kind of awesome. I am of course struggling with the pain of recovering from major surgery, but the actual birth experience was pretty exciting and very surreal! :)

Jake and Eisley are over the moon, and love their little brother just as much as I knew they would. There is nothing like it in the world, watching them dote on Jonesy and coo and kiss him! I nearly die of pure joy when I see them giggle over him and marvel over his tiny features!

I am so incredibly blessed to be able to nurse Jones exclusively, which means God has built in constant mommy-baby time! It is a challenge of course, but I am truly and honestly loving the whole experience. The lack of sleep has been rough though! Jones is thriving and we are expected to head home this afternoon!

I've had a few struggles with the pain and recovery of the surgery so far, but that's to be expected. I imagine it will continue to have its ups and downs over the next few weeks, so I'd appreciate your prayers for fast healing for me!

I promise to overwhelm you with pictures of our little man very soon, but for now this is the best I can do! We are so thankful to our gracious Lord for this precious gift, which is the full meaning of our son's name! Stay tuned for pictures!!
