He’s here! Hooray! I apologize for being over a month late with the announcement (& for basically being MIA on the blog for months).
Harmon Hunter Bodeker became our fourth little Iowan on December 1, 2015 just before 10AM. He weighed 6lbs 9oz and was just under 20in long. Our little peanut! He’s still quite small–we think just under or over 8 lbs today using Brian’s work scale. We named him after my father’s father, Harmon McAllister, who passed away when my father was still in his teens. ~ ~ ~
Harmon (our Harmon) is a very serious little guy–his one month photos are proof of that! Still no purposeful smiles yet, but he started cooing when I talk to him this past week. He also began tracking where I move (& where my voice moves) this week. He’s been experiencing a lot of tummy upset since he was born…lots of gas…lots of cat naps abruptly ended by gas pains. We started him in cloth diapers with wool covers between 2 and 3 weeks. He’s just so small even our newborn diapers weren’t working for a couple weeks. We go through a lot of diapers around here…Harmon poos A LOT…epic amounts. All night long, too. We cosleep, but we’re still not getting much sleep yet.
Harmon broke out in baby acne around Week 3 & it has only gotten worse. Covers his scalp, all over his face & neck, and down his chest. Today it all seemed to turn to a scaly crust & looks painful. I know it isn’t, but it just looks so awful.
Brown hair! And it’s still brown! June was born with very dark hair, almost black, but it turned blonde rather quickly. Coralee & Merritt were bald & white-blonde (respectively).
The day Harmon became our fourth little Iowan. So glad he is here safely!
