Parker

Well our new little addition is here! We named him Parker Dan Gibbs. He was born Wed morning at 1:57am, 30 minutes after we made it to the hospital. He was 2 weeks early, but he weighed 7lb 12oz and was 21 inches long. He was perfectly healthy, and everything went smoothly, with no issues for either him or me. We came home Friday morning, and since then we've been doing our best to adjust to our normal life. So far, it's going really well. Here are some pics.

Here's Carson holding Parker that first morning (the first several pics were taken Wed morning):

This last one I just took of Parker sleeping on the couch with Mike. Poor Mike's been so busy trying to help me with my normal "mom jobs" that he's exhausted as well!

Everybody is doing great! Parker is sleeping well at night, and since it's summer the house is easier to keep clean. Meals are being brought to us for the next few days, and then my mom will be here to help. Thanks to everybody for the help and support! Isn't he adorable?

Parker is too cute! Can't believe how filled out he is or that you were only at the hospital 30 min before he was born! What is your secret?! Love the dark hair! And Carson looks so much like Mike in the boys picture! Hope you're all well!

He is adorable! Congrats, I'm glad everything went well. I kind of thought you had him (hadn't been seeing you outside lately) but I wasn't sure. I'm such a bad neighbor! Let me know if there is anything you need! He is soooo handsome. I love his dark hair!
