Jackson here - The big day finally arrived! Our baby Parks is here and he is perfect. Mallory and Parks are doing great. She went into labor Thursday night around 10PM, and Parks was born 26 hours at 11:44PM on November 28th. Mal was AWESOME. She got all the way to 10cm and pushed for an hour and a half with no meds; however, after that hour and a half Parks hadn’t moved at all. That’s when our doctor and Mallory agreed it was time for plan B. Mallory received a pitocan driop and an epidural at 10PM, allowing her to sleep and rest for an hour and a half, while at the same time giving her stronger contractions to help push Parks down. At 11:30PM she started to push again and then Parks was born at 11:44PM!! Parks was 7 pounds 14 ounces and 20.5’’ long. B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L. He and Mallory are both resting and recovering well. Enjoy the pics of our first 24 hours with Parks.
