Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Happy 3rd Birthday Alyssa- The Joy of My Life!

Happy 3rd Birthday Alyssa- The Joy of My Life!

I just looked at the clock and realized what time it was.  Three years ago today, at 9:54am, my beautiful Alyssa was born!!  Yes, the time has flown by!

Many of you remember me blogging while in the hospital when she was born. Those are some great memories!  I hope you'll stick around to see what happens in the next few days with BabyHarris2. No, we don't have a name yet!!

Here is a conversation I had with Alyssa a few days ago:

Me: Can the baby come yet?
Alyssa: Am I three yet?
Me: No.
Alyssa: The baby can't come until I'm three!
Me: But wouldn't it be nice to have the baby as your very own birthday present? It would be so special!
Alyssa: Silly, Mommy, people can't be presents!!

Wow! The logic of a three year old!  He's listening to his Big Sister though because he should have come last week with the 14+ hours of 3-5 minute contractions I had, but Alyssa told him NO, so he stayed put.  I'm really hoping for Friday this week!!

Here are some pictures of Alyssa's Three Year Old Photo Shoot:

**Are You Packed Yet?**

Oh my gosh, Donna.  You've got a hearbreaker on your hands!  And now you're going to have 2 Scorpios on your hand.  We can be a handful! :)
