Welcome Parker

Parker William Cole
11/17/11 10:21am
8 lbs 0 oz, 21" 

The Story:

We had a scheduled c-section this time so it was much different then last time. We checked in at the hospital at 7:30am, had some monitoring and got prepped for surgery.  We went into the OR at about 9:45am, I got a spinal, and Parker was out by 10:21am.  It was all very chill and afterwards I was not nearly as groggy or out of it as the first time.  In fact, I was eating a donut by 11:30am.

Parker was able to come right into recovery with me and he nursed right away like a pro whose been doing it forever.  Seriously, the kid is a champion breastfeeder.  Nor coercing needed, he just does it and does it well. 

We had nothing exciting happen in the hospital and they let us out a day early.  The surgery was on Thursday, we were discharged on Saturday afternoon. And really, with the nasty food, pay tv, and the parade of nursing students in my room, we were ready to go!

Things have been going good at home.  Parker is a super chill baby so far.  He pretty much only cries when he wants to eat and he usually goes pretty much right back to sleep after eating at night.  Milo seems to like him so far.  He tried to share a cookie with him in the hospital (and he NEVER wants to share cookies!) and likes to show him the games he is playing on our phones.  He also likes to talk about what he's doing and will stand on a chair to be able to "help" change his diaper. He's a great big brother and I think they are going to get along just fine!
