Kade Matix Harmon

Our baby was born on March 1st, 2010, 9:03 am. He weighed 7 pounds 13 ounces and is 21 inches long. We named him Kade Matix Harmon, although it took us several hours to figure out what exactly his name was going to be. We are so excited to have him and were so excited that we have 3 boys! I still can't believe how outnumbered I am, I was so sure he was going to be a girl. Dane and Ty think they knew all along that he was a boy, but that's just because that's what they wanted him to be.

After a few days at the hospital we are very happy to be home and just taking it easy. We've had lots of great family and friends come visit and bring delicious meals. It's been so nice to get rested up and not worry about cooking. Actually I haven't had to worry about much of anything. My mom and dad took great care of Dane and Ty while we were at the hospital and since we've been home Lee has taken care of everything. He's done laundry, dishes, cleaned the house, and been spending a lot of time with Dane and Ty. The only bad thing is that Lee got sick this week and so he hasn't been able to love and kiss on Kade. He's kept his distance pretty good and I know it's killing him. He's such a baby lover, so it's sad that he's got a nasty cold. Even with the sickness he's been super dad and a super husband!Dane and Ty are absolutely loving their new baby brother. They are so wonderful with him and always love to hold him and help burp him. They are great helpers with fetching diapers and they are the sanitizer police! They make sure everyone who hold Kade is sanitized, they take it very serious. They are trying to be such good helpers for me too. This morning I woke up about an hour after the rest of the family. I asked Dane to get me a little orange for breakfast. I heard him rummaging around in the kitchen and soon he brought me a little bowl with an orange, grapes, and he made me some chocolate milk, my favorite. It was so cute and I could tell he was so proud of himself for thinking it. Then this afternoon he and Ty were outside playing and they decided to shovel our walkway and all around our cars. Then they went and shoveled my grandma & grandpa's walk.

As for Kade, he's been a wonderful baby! He loves to eat and loves to sleep. I've been up with him no more 2 times each night so I can't complain at all, I just hope he keeps up this nice schedule. I am loving having him around, he's so soft and cuddly and smells so good, I can't get enough of him. I was a little nervous to get back in to baby mode, but am loving everything about it!
