Harrison's Betrothed Is Here~

Harrison's message for Emerson
Trying to capture our excitement

I think he is pretty excited!

Okay, so my very best friend, Allison, had her sweet baby girl last night. Her name is Emerson Grace Reed. Allison and I have been planning for Harrison and Emerson to get married since we found out she was having a girl. I'd like to say that I am exaggerating, but I am kind of serious too. This arranged marriage idea doesn't sound so bad now that I have a child of my own.
Anyway, we couldn't be more thrilled that Emerson and her mommy are healthy.
Here is the weird part:

Harrison: due date (March) 25th...arrived on (March) 19th
Emerson: due date (May) 25th...arrived on (May) 19th

Harrison: I checked into the hospital the night before to be induced and labored all the next day with very slow progression
Emerson: Allison did the same exact thing

Harrison: arrived at 9:02 pm
Emerson: arrived at 8:58 pm

Harrison: 7lbs, 12 ounces; 21 inches
Emerson: 7 lbs, 11 ounces; 21 inches

I'm just saying.... I know it is kind of ridiculous, but also kind of crazy how similar everything is.

You'd better be glad I didn't pick out your husband-to-be when you were born. You'd have never been lucky enough to have married Adam, and I would have missed out on an amazing son-in-law!
