A year ago today

A year ago today, we welcomed into the world our beautiful little ray of sunshine, Parker.  Exactly 8 days after my due date, I was induced. I had a fairly easy delivery with the help of an epidural and lots of support from Dan and my Grandmother.  After about 10 hrs of labor and an hour and a half of pushing, Parker made his appearance at 1:50 pm weighing in at 9lbs, 30z and 22″ long.  What a beautiful, exciting and emotional time for our family. He was absolutely perfect. I never imagined then how much our life would change.

So much has happened in a year and there is no way that one blog post could sum it all up. We’ve watched Parker brighten our days with his smiles, giggles, babbling, and fun social personality. I’ve also had to do a bit of tough love and routine in order to establish a comfortable structure. All of which he took well to since he is a great sleeper and has been from early on. I’ve also realized the challenges that a child can bring to marriage, and how much energy it takes to make sure that you are being not only a great Mom, but also a loving and supportive wife too. I feel so lucky every day that I get to stay home with Parker, and that I have a loving supportive husband that helps make that possible. I feel so incredibly blessed, and I’m so excited to see what this next year will bring with Parker becoming a big brother in March. I’ll leave you with my sweet little birthday boy enjoying his first taste of pure sweetness.

  1. Sharon, At one year old, you’ve managed to instill in Parker all the table manners you have learned over your entire life. I’ve learnt you well. -:) What a great video… he did try to get you a couple of times
    love Dad
