Shell, author of Things I Can’t Say hosted a great link-up last month called Rockin’ the Bump. I showed off my little bump and now want to show off the fabulous little girl that was hiding inside.

After the rough pregnancy, Harlan made it easy on me for her delivery. I didn’t realize I was in labor (she was three weeks early) until I went to the hospital and they told me I was already 5cm dilated. After only 6 short hours, an epidural, and only 6 pushes, she was out. She weighed 6 pounds, 9 ounces and was 20 inches long.

Here is a shot of her at the hospital only hours old.

Here are a few of her newborn photo session at a week old.

Here she is Thanksgiving 2009, just shy of three months.

Here she is around 8 months.

Here is Harlan at her First Birthday Party.

And last week at the beach {you will see in a minute why I added this one.}

Now there are so many people that say Harlan and I look exactly alike, however both MacKay and I have blonde hair and blue eyes and were bald babies. We actually look very similar as babies {creepy, I know.}

I’m going to let you decide. Who do you think Harlan resembles more?

Here are a few baby pictures of me.


Here are a few of MacKay.

What do you think? Who does Harlan look like?

She totally does look like both of you! You’re so lucky! Both of my kids came out looking like Matt, and STILL look way more like my husband than me. Maybe I’ll be lucky with baby #3! 🙂

I think she’s the perfect mix of you and McKay.

Look at all that cuteness! She does looks like both of you, but I would say she looks more like you in your 2nd and 3rd baby pic. Awww I love the pic with her in the pink hat! She is too precious!

Wow… Harlan does look like the both of you as a baby. She’s so cute and she looks the same now as she did as an infant.

Ummm… you were 5cm and not even aware that you were in labor? And 6 pushes? Wowsa! I would have loved a delivery like that!

In some shots, I think she looks like you, and in others, it’s the hubs. But too cute all the way around.

Plus how funny is it that in two photos she’s pointing her finger?!!

Beautiful pics! And Harlan is definitely a great combination of both of you…..but I think slightly more of you. Mine all looked like my hubby earlier… then seemed to take after me more, and now my son is back to looking like hubby, the baby looks like me…..and my middle one? have no idea. I swear it’s not the mailman! LOL
