Parker's Newborn Pics


LOL he totally peed all over!! I don't know how,
but she managed to snap the photo and
catch it!

We had Parker's newborn pics done when he was about 1 week old. I am so happy we got naked ones done. I didn't with Kaylie, and I totally regret it. These turned out PERFECT! I just cry every time I look at them.
There are too many to pick from. We have about 175 pics...they all turned out great!
We're adjusting to life a little better now days...we have a pretty good routine down and Parker is sleeping so good at night. The past few nights he's slept all night, so that is so awesome!
He's such a good, mellow, easy baby! He just goes with the flow and allows Kaylie to maul him, disturb him when he's sleeping, and throw toys at his face!! We just love him and are so happy he's a part of our family!!

Birth Story!

I tried to put these in order, but had a heck of a time doing it, so I gave up!

Daniel holding his son for the first time.
Just got to the hospital and changed into a gown.

Heading out the door to the hospital early Monday morning.

First family pic :)

I believe I was having a contraction at this time,
but tried to smile and act like it wasn't hurting
to have Kaylie sit on my lap.
Proud daddy :)

Sweet baby boy.
Holding Parker for the first time.
There's No way to describe this feeling.
*** So....I was super nervous to be induced, because a lot of mothers who are induced end up having a c-section. I did not want that! The night before I was induced, my parents got here. Daniel, my dad and Daniel's dad gave me a blessing, which really calmed my nerves. I didn't sleep much that night. I don't know if I was nervous, or having contractions. I think a little bit of both.
My boss called me from the hospital Monday morning and told me my 2 favorite nurses were working in OB and to hurry and get there so we could get going! I was so excited that they were working. They are awesome and so much fun!
When we got there, I changed into my gown and the nurse checked me. I was dialated to a 4! I couldn't believe it. I had been 2cm for 3 weeks, so I was surprised I was that dialated. She got my IV going and started the pitocin. We were having a great time, just chillin, waiting for the contractions to start. The nurse turned up the pit every 30 min. I didn't realy start to feel contractions until about 10:30. They were mild at first, and tolerable. She told me to let her know when I wanted my epidural, because it would take about 30 min to get the anestesiologist (sp?) out of surgery and there to do it. I asked for it around 10:45 and didn't get it until 11:30. At that point I was getting really uncomftorable and thought about calling him myself!
Kaylie, my parents and Daniel's parents were there by now and getting nervous. I was also super nervous to get my epidural. When he got there, he had me lay on my side, in a fetal posistion. With my first epidural, I sat up and hunched my back. This really made me nervous. I ended up doing just fine and it was a WONDERFUL epidural. After my epidural was in, they checked me again. I was 6 cm.
Dr Gagon came in at about noon and broke my water, This really got my labor going! I loved having contractions and not feeling a thing!! At 2pm I was dialated to 8cm. At about 2:50ish I was complete and ready to push! Dr. Gagon got there at 3pm. As soon as he got there and started getting his gown ans gloves, I got so emotional! I think reality was sinking in, and I was also scared because I pushed for 1 1/2 hrs with Kaylie. I was afraid that would happen again.
I started pushing at 3, Parker was born at 3:07!!! He weighed 7lb 7oz and was 2o in long.
At this point we still had't agreed on a name. Daniel was dead set on Parker, but I wasn't too sure! That night before we went to bed, Daniel informed me that we were deciding on a name before we went to sleep. I figured one of us had to give in, so I did. I figured it was his son, I pretty much named Kaylie and it would eventually grow on me, so we went with PARKER CURTIS MOWER.
The rest is hustory...the recovery with Parker was 100% easier than with Kaylie. I felt sooo good and never had any issues. Parker has been a great baby and such a sweetheart.
He's sleeping a lot better at night and eating every 3-4 hrs. He's gaining weight now, now that we figured out he wasn't getting enough from breastfeeding. He weighed 8 lb 14 oz today :)
We are so blessed to have Parker in our family abd just love him to pieces :)

2 weeks old already!

I love this little guy! He's such a sweet baby. I had forgotten how much fun newborns are. Even though there are many sleepless nights, it's all totally worth it.
We had a really rough nights where he was up pretty much all night. (Only slept on and off for 3 hrs). He would wake up just screaming and acting like he was in pain. The only thing I could think of was acid reflux. I took him in to our Pediatrician yesterday. He weighed 7lb 7oz at birth. Well yesterday he was 7lb 6oz! So sad. He said he should be around 7lb 14oz by now. I felt horrible. He felt he's not getting enough to eat so he's waking up hungry. So now I am nursing him on both sides, then offering a bottle. We did this last night and had a much better night. (That's why I am finally getting around to a post!) Anyway, things are great, we love our baby Parker and Kaylie is adjusting well. She loves him to death and is always looking out for him. We are so blessed to have him in our family!
