A little over 5 weeks ago - we welcomed a new baby boy into our family. Parker James.
My doctor had decided to induce me a week early as she was going to be out of town and I had no problem with that as the last month of my pregnancy was brutal. I was over being pregnant and my body was tired, sore and majorly uncomfortable.
We arrived at the hospital at 8 am and by 1:43 pm that afternoon Parker was in my arms. He came in at a whopping 9 lbs. 6 oz. and 21.75 inches tall. If we had waited for Parker to arrive on his own I can only imagine how big he would have been. My body hurts even thinking about it!
It is crazy how much he looked like his big brother when he arrived. Talk about deja vu. As the weeks progress he is starting to look more like his own person - although I think he looks even more like his dad than Ethan.
I am thankful that, like his brother, he is a pretty easy baby. As long as his diaper is clean and his belly is full, he is a pretty content baby. He only wakes up usually twice a night and has already had a few nights where he slept 6 hours so we are hopeful he will be sleeping through the night in no time.
We hired an awesome photographer to come in and take some great newborn and family photos for us (stay tuned for those!) but I couldn't resist snapping a few photos myself.
