Tanner Parker was born at 8:08 this morning weighing 7lbs 6oz. He is named for my maternal grandfather who held him in his arms and cried this evening. We are too happy for words, too grateful for words. I am holding my newborn son on my chest as I type this from my iPhone because I cannot give him up to retrieve my laptop. Will do a longer post with pictures very soon but for now just picture us soaking it in. We cannot thank you enough for your thoughts and prayers.


  1. Congratulations!! I am thrilled, thrilled, thrilled for all of you! Though I have to admit I was secretly wishing he would surprise you with a Sunday arrival (Miss A's 1st birthday).

    I love the name, and that he is named for your maternal grandfather. Coincidentally, Miss A is named for her maternal grandfather. Grandpas are very special people. :-)

    Enjoy your amazing son, and post a picture when you have a chance. Congrats again!

  2. Congratulations! I'm so very happy for you!
