And then there were three. Avery. Ryder. Harper.
To complete this beautiful family… (my session fave)
With PROUD big brother and sister!
Merry Christmas, sweet baby girl. XO!
Here are a few fun facts about Harper…
What was your baby’s birth weight and length?
9 pounds 14 ounces
23.5 inches long
Is there a story behind your baby’s name?
Ryan and I made a list before our first baby… Being a teacher severely limits the names available for use. Harper was almost my 5 year old daughter’s name and when we found out this one was a girl, we still loved it. Her middle name, Zana. Is a family name. My grandmother’s name is Zana, her grandmother’s name was Zana and so on… My 13 year old cousin was also named Zana. Hopefully, Harper will continue the tradition.
Give us the scoop. What has surprised you the most about parenthood?
Parenting 3 is a whole new experience! 2 was a handful but 3 may send me over the edge ????
The big kids have been amazing with her, they love her so much… They always want to give her kisses and hold her. Avery is very gentle and just thinks being a big sister to a girl is the best. Ryder loves her too much and I’m afraid he may pull a Darla from Finding Nemo! ????
What did you like best about your experience with Crystal Jo?
Crystal, as my husband puts it, is a baby magician. She made sure the shoot was all set up for newborns: heaters, calming music, etc. She knew exactly how to handle and position Harper as well. It was amazing.
