Introducing Parker

I’m so thrilled to finally introduce our beautiful little bundle, Parker Reid. He arrived at 9:02 pm, October 3rd, weighing 7lbs 13oz – exactly a week past his due date. I didn’t have the water-birth I had planned, but it was still a beautiful and amazing natural birth experience relying solely on gas & air, a birth ball and the support of my husband. I still can’t believe he is really here! 

These last few days have been so special and happy. I had worried throughout my pregnancy how Finlay would react to his new sibling – Would he get jealous? Would he act up? Or would he ignore them? But it turns out Finlay is just as smitten with baby Parker as we are! He strokes his head so carefully, peers over his cot to watch him sleep and even gives him kisses on the forehead. All the while I’m watching in the background, getting all choked up at how lucky and blessed we are to have these two gorgeous boys in our lives. 

I’ll be sharing another update again soon, but in the meantime thank you so much to everyone who left such sweet comments on Instagram, both on the Chalk Kids account and my personal one. We read them all and were so touched! I am one very lucky mama.
