Little Harvey Charles turned 1 month old this week. He is such a treasure, we are all smitten with his round face and chubby cheeks and soft double chin. And he is growing like a weed, still spewing terribly but obviously it isn't affecting his ability to gain weight! This week he started giving us some cute smiles - especially first thing in the morning when the sun rises and he wakes from the night. Funny how you can't imagine how a new baby is going to fit into the family but once they have been here for a little while you can't imagine how the family could feel complete without them.
Remember when I hinted that his name comes from a Thomas the Tank Engine character? Well, here is his fellow train - Harvey. Harvey (the train) is described as relentlessley cheery, big-hearted and helpful. Let's hope the name comes with the characteristics! Although the Thomas books did give us the initial idea to name him Harvey, his name does have special meaning in our family. Jaron's great Uncle (so, Harvey's great-great Uncle) is also named Harvey. The kids and I met Uncle Harvey and Aunty Jill when we went to New Zealand a couple of years ago. They are the sweetest couple and he is a well-loved uncle so it just seemed right that we name our baby after him.

Since he was born, Tommy decided that his name wouldn't be Harvey at all!! I think it might have something to do with Tommy being put out of place with the arrival of the little man, this was something that he could be in control of, so we're rolling with it to keep everyone happy!
