Baby Girl Parker is Here!

Just had to interrupt my regularly scheduled posts to share that Baby girl Parker has arrived and all are doing well!  We are all over the moon excited about our new bundle of joy and how much this is going to enhance our family.  Lauren went natural with delivery and so it was about a 24 hour process of getting Parker into the world and we are SO thankful that everything went well and mama and daughter are peacefully resting.

Lauren and Parker

My sister is down there and will be for about 6 weeks, helping Lauren with the baby.  I’m planning to take my parents down there probably the 2nd week of March or so and we will all get to see her in person.  My sister was texting pics to me all morning since she was born just before 7 a.m. Central time today.  I went over today to show my parents all the text pics, since they don’t have an iphone.  I wish you could have seen the smiles from ear to ear on both of them, with my mom choking back the tears as she peered at pics of her great granddaughter for the first time.  What a special time it is for all of us!  Thanks to all of you for the prayers when I posted the labor on Facebook yesterday.  God is good!

This baby girl will get plenty of love and attention from both sides of the family and we think she’s pretty darn cute too.  Those pouty lips just won my heart!  Babies are such a blessing from above and we will cherish this bundle of joy forever.
