Hello Again!

It has taken me more than three weeks to get back to blogging.  I've had one particular distraction lately...

Isn't he PRECIOUS? 

Life as Parker's mommy is a whole new experience.  It has been full of so many different moments and emotions, most of them so sweet.  I will be the first to admit - being a mom is the hardest thing I have ever done.  I have an undergraduate degree, a graduate degree and CPA certification and being a mother trumps them all.  There is no book or manual that comes with a little bundle of joy and every baby is so different.  The only thing you have are your innate parental instincts (and your dear family and friends!).  So...for the last three weeks I have been developing those parental instincts (and making many phone calls for advice and help)!

Our little man is doing great, Coco and I are soaking up his sweet face!  We learn more and more about Parker with each day.  It is surreal to sit and stare at our little one and think that God created him just for us.  We hold on to each moment (even the fussy ones!), he is already growing so fast I can't imagine how quickly time flies.

We went for Sweet P's three week appointment Tuesday and he is growing like a weed!  Here are his current stats...

8 lbs, 9 oz. - he has gained almost 2 lbs since birth!
21.5 inches long - he has grown a whole inch!

I promise one of my next posts will be of Parker's nursery.  My sweet mother was wrapping up the finishing touches the day we brought him home from the NICU!

**A very special thank you to MC for keeping the blog up to date with Parker's arrival and NICU stay.  Parker loves his Auntie!
