Parker Robert Allen!!!



He's here!!! He's so great, handsome, and just perfect! Parker was born yesterday April 2, 2009 at 11:22pm weighing a whopping 7lbs. 11oz. and 19 3/4" long. We are elated to have this little blessing in our lives, he fits just perfectly into our family!
I had already seen the doctor that morning for my weekly check up where she had scheduled me for an induction on Tuesday morning and "stripped the membranes"(sounds lovely doesn't it?). Skylee, Laura and Lilly went to story time at the library and a few other errands where I could feel my contractions start to pick up. By the time I got home I figured it was time to start timing my conctractions, and sure enough they were close enough together and consistant that I went back into my OB office. They hooked me up to the monitors and after they saw I was making progress they sent me right over to the hospital. I arrived at around 3:00pm, didn't do much until around 6:00pm when I had my water broken and epidural put in. I was given pitocin to speed up and strengthen my contractions and by 11:00pm I was ready to go! Ryan had to run home to get a few things and I could feel that I was ready, but didn't tell the nurses in fear that they would want me to start without Ryan getting back :) It didn't take long for Parker to come, everything went really well and both he and I are happy and healthy!
Before: So ready and so excited!
After: As Skylee and I quote "it's hard work for a little bunny":)

Skylee came to meet Parker this morning for the first time and is still trying to compute the new addition to our family. She's so eager to give him his pacifier and wants to hold and kiss him. She's going to make a good helper at home, and a great big sister! Ryan is a proud daddy of his son! It's one of those little things in life, when you see the joy a new baby brings to a parent, in my case; seeing the love that Ryan has for Skylee and now Parker. He's been able to stay at the hospital with me since Laura is here watching Skylee, and I enjoy the constant company and help while I recover!
We love our Baby Parker, he has already brought so much love and happiness into our lives. We can't wait to see him grow and continue to bless our lives! We love you Parker!
