I tried to capture some of the sweet moments shared between Harrison and Adam last night. Harrison definitely knows him and just beams at the sound of his voice. Hopefully everyone can see how awesome of a dad Adam is by this video.
On another note, it was time to trim Harrison's nails again. His daggers had gotten so long that he left battle wounds on Puff, himself, and me. When my mom was here, she said she could never do it and that my dad used to trim my nails. I thought she was a wimp as I made my way up the stairs to trim his nails for the second time (hubris would be my downfall). I successfully cut his nails when he was about two weeks, but now he squirms a little more. I cut one nail, and drew blood! Harrison was a man about it, but I was devastated. So last night we fed Harrison and got him in a food-coma so Adam could cut his nails.

The Brantley Family and Grandma Sherry made a trip to Breckenridge for the weekend. We decided to take advantage of Grandma being here to take care of Harrison while Adam and I went snowboarding. It was the last weekend that Breck was open, so we couldn't pass that up (especially since I didn't go all season). It was also Harrison's first vacation! The weather was amazing for his first vacation.
Adam and I had a great time on the slopes, and I am sure that Harrison had an eventful time with Grandma. Everything went well until we had to go to the ER on Saturday night. Fortunately, our visit had nothing to do with Harrison. One month to the day after giving birth to Harrison, I found myself back in the hospital. Turns out that I sunburned my corneas. This same thing happened to Laura Cutter last year and while I felt bad for her, I did not give her due sympathy. If anyone ever tells you that they have this condition, then it would be appropriate for you to feel REALLY bad for them. It is a horrible feeling that makes you want to pull your eyeballs out. Actually, it feels like you have a sand storm occurring on the surface of your eyeballs and you can't do anything about it. It is pretty terrible. Anyway, Adam took me to the ER and they numbed my eyes and gave me a good deal of pain medication. They still hurt like the dickens, but hopefully they will be a little better tomorrow. Oh, and my learning from this: always protect your eyes while snowboarding/skiing. Even though it is beautiful and is 55 degrees, you still need to wear your goggles (mine were on my head). Thankfully this happened when Harrison is too young to realize that his mommy made a really bad decision.
All in all, we had a great time. Harrison got to get his first taste of the mountains, and Grandma Sherry was in heaven getting to take care of him (at least I assume that she was).
