Introducing Miss Reese Caroline and Big Brother Parker

Born 10/10
7 lbs. 3 oz.
20.5 inches long

Reese is finally here! After a long anticipated 9 months, she is here, perfectly healthy and absolutely precious. Labor and delivery were quick and better than I imagined, which is such a blessing. Parker should win the award for Best Big Brother. He has been so wonderful, and such a big boy. He seems so big now that we have held Reese, but of course he will always be my baby boy, Parker Pie. He loves to hold and kiss her. 

We have spent the past few days getting to know her and trying to get some sleep whenever possible. Like most newborns, she has her days and nights mixed up. I need her Uncle J.J. here to offer night relief! :) She has gotten a little better each night. 

She went to her pediatrician yesterday. She had lost 7 oz., which is normal for newborns. But, her bilirubin was higher than when we left the hospital, so they want to check that out again tomorrow. I have her in the sunlight right now, so hopefully that will help.

Sweet little Reese Caroline

Just takin' a peek

Mommy is having fun dressing me up! :)

One of the rare moments caught with her eyes sweet.

Parker and Reese with good friends Melissa and Grant.

Melissa took the boys to Wiggles the night we brought Reese home. He had a great time playing with Grant. Aren't they so cute in their rival shirts? Too bad that's the same day that OU got beat. :(

Another sweet one with her eyes open.

Reese's first bath. She SLEPT through the entire thing.
Parker was a good helper getting her towel and talking to her.

Daddy with his best bud and little girl. She looked so
sweet in her pink towel.
