After the birth of our son, when close friends and family came to meet him for the first time (knowing no details other than our newest addition had arrived) we introduced him something like this...
“Here she is, isn’t she beautiful!”
“Her name is Harper”
You may be thinking why on earth would we do this? It was a little experiment my Husband and I decided to do and the results.. Well, some were a little disappointing but lets start at the beginning...

My name is Tanya Harper and I am officially a baby collector.
I managed to have my first and fourth baby 4years and 2days apart (currently ranging for 4yrs to 3months old). All have been single pregnancies. I did however manage to have two boys first then two girls which is incredibly delightful and strangers regularly comment how clever I am. Such a strange thing to say really. It really hasn’t come down to intelligence. Well if it did, it wasn’t passed onto my children…anywho this sums up how my husband and I have managed to keep not only the spawn alive, but also our relationship.
My husband, Daniel, is younger than me and I was also his first serious girlfriend. We had never even lived together until our first was 6 months old and had been married for 8months. In fact I was heavily pregnant on the one and only holiday we have been on, which was our honeymoon #noactiontobehad. The one thing we have always had, is a incredible respect and understanding for one another. We also parent insync which has helped having four children relatively easy.
