Harrison Taylor

Well, it's been three months since my last blog post... oops! The last post I wrote was my 36 week bumpdate, and now I am snuggling my sweet two month old baby as I type this.

Meet our son, Harrison Taylor Phelps.



He is the sweetest, best baby we could have asked for, and we are so in love. Thank you to everyone who prayed for our family and our newest miracle. We feel so blessed that God chose us to be his parents!

I always love hearing what people name their babies, so I thought I would share the story behind Harrison's name. Well, I use the word "story" loosely because Harrison is not a family name or a name Parker and I have talked about for years and planned to name our child. We had one boy name that we talked about before we had kids, and that was Preston. When we found out we were having another boy, we were at a loss for what to name him! We have about 10 girl names ready to go that we will probably never use, but boy names are hard for us!

Our front runners were Austin (Parker's favorite) and Collin (my favorite). We both vetoed the other one's favorite, so that was cool. I threw out the name Harrison one day, and we both liked it. The more we thought about it, the more we liked it. Honestly, we never came up with anything we liked more, and now that we see the name attached to our sweet boy, we absolutely LOVE it! This baby is definitely a Harrison, and I couldn't love his name more.

His middle name is Taylor after his big sister in Heaven. We love doing family names for middle names (Taylor's middle name is also my little sister's middle name and Preston shares a middle name with Parker). We were in church one Sunday, and I looked over at Parker's notes, and he had written "Harrison Taylor Phelps" at the bottom. He showed it to me, and I opened my mouth in shock at how perfect it was. I honestly couldn't believe I hadn't thought of it! From that moment on, we knew Taylor would be his middle name.

We are loving life as a family of four and are praising God for this new blessing!

So glad to see you blogging again! :) I was wondering how y'all picked Harrison -- I almost messaged you on IG to ask, haha!
