Hello, Lemon!

Dear Parker,

One week ago your Dad and I were preparing to head to the hospital to be induced for your birth. Twenty-six hours later, your Dad and I were in an operating room, and our waiting finally ended when we heard you cry for the first time.

April 27th is now my favorite day of the year.

Your middle name is David - after an incredible friend of your Dad's who we lost too soon; we'll be sure to tell you all about him as you grow up.
You have a sister named Cece, who we also lost too soon, but we believe played a huge role in you getting here. We'll make sure you know about her as well.

You're a tiny little thing - born at almost seven pounds, but holding steady now around six. You know our voices and give the most awesome judge-y faces when you're alert; I never knew a furrowed brow could look so adorable.


We've waited for you. Through ups and downs, triumphs and tears, your Dad and I have wished and prayed and hoped for you - and we've had you with us for almost a week.

Part of me still can't believe it's real.
You are so so loved little boy, and if there's only one thing I can promise you, it's that you'll grow up never doubting that.

Here's to all the love and laughter you've brought us already - and everything that lies ahead of us.

All my love,
Mom

I love this post so much! :) I so happy that your rainbow baby is here in your arms and that he is healthy! What a blessing! I can't wait to meet him down the road but for now, please keep the pictures coming. :) I can't get enough of them! I would also be curious to learn more about his birth story! I about died that day when I knew you were being induced/in labor as I SO BADLY wanted to text you for an update but didn't want to bother you as I knew you were going to be focused on bringing Parker into the world. :)

I'm with Lisa- I was bursting that day! (you can ask her, I texted her instead of you because I was like HAVE TO TALK TO SOMEONE)... of course ultimately I texted you anyway haha, hopefully you saw it later and were happy to hear we were all thinking of you.
