Birthing Class Reunion Party

Today we went to our birthing class reunion party. The hubbster wasn't overly excited about going, but I LOVE babies (mine especially) and wanted to go show him that our precious one was the cutest of them all.
I WAS RIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Parker stole the show, AGAIN!
Everyone loved his hair, and commented on how big he was for his age. Darnit people, my kid is not big! He doesn't even have any fat rolls yet!!! :-)
Anyhow - more to come about the daily excitements of having a family!

Can you believe that our baby boy is already 12 weeks old!! ((yesterday, July 20th actually!)) He is growing so fast. Everyday he has a new look or smile or giggle that is so exciting to experience!
I remember doing this so many moons ago with Delainey and being amazed then too!

Parkers official Birth Announcement

I was sooooo excited when I got these in the mail.

Can you believe I took this picture with my cell phone!!!

Born a Steelers Fan

The Harrison family is born and bred Pittsburgh sports fans. Parker already has a Steelers Jersey custom made with his name on it. He has a Pirates onesie outfit, a Penn State outfit to grow into, now he just needs a Penguins outfit!!!

He did receive a Seahawks cozy blanket and a Mariners outfit, so we are representing the West Coast as well!

Parkers first professional pictures

Today Parker got his first "official" bath, and then a trip to the photography studio.
It was a tad busy in there, so by the time they got to us, he didn't want to cooperate overly well.

Grandma & Grandpa Harrison were in town to visit their first grandson, so we decided to do the family picture thing!

Here is a sampling of the little guy!

Delainey is a big sister!!

Delainey is a big sister and so proud of it!

She said that her little brother could never bother her and that his crying was just fine!

Can we record those words for a later date when they start to do the sibling fighting!!!

Parker is going home!!!!

Today is April 29th and we get to go home.

We had Parker at The Women's Hospital at Centennial Medical Center and our experience was nothing less than AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!

I work at the hospital so I know many people, and we had somewhat of a revolving door, but it was AWESOME. We were so well taken care of by friends, family, and staff that we'd consider doing it again just based on our life experiences up to this point.

THANK YOU EVERYONE for making this experience so WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!

Parkers preparation & arrival !!!

Hello there!!!
I'm so excited to create this blog/page so that i can post my thoughts and pictures of Parker and our new enlarged family.

He arrived on April 27, 2009 at 4:45pm
He was 8lbs 1 oz // 20 1/2 inches long

It was an exciting journey from the pregnancy to the arrival.

I wont bore everyone with too many details, but the pregnancy was pretty rough for the first 17 weeks with me being sick every day from the moment I woke up til the time I went to sleep. After that it was great. I made it through the remainder of my pregnancy with no complications until the week before I delivered; which is when i stressed myself out and got my blood pressure a little high for a brief time.

I went in to the hospital for a planned induction on the morning of April 27th. When i got all settled in my room, my nurse told me that I would have been seeing them within a few hours that morning if I hadn't been planned because my contractions were already 3 minutes apart..... I was wondering what that constant abdominal pain was!! LOL.

I had a pretty easy labor throughout the day until they tried to sit me up and move things along. I started to feel woozy and turned white. Note to self, don't sit up!!

Anyhow - the actual active labor was really great. I pushed 5 times and 15 minutes later out came my precious little boy with a whole head of hair!
