More Pictures

We have been having so much fun with our new little member of the family. Parker is fitting right in and has been such a good baby. Aside from our little ER visit... He had an uncomfortable night of crying and pooping that brought us to the ER to be sure that everything was fine. It was. He is doing great!

My parents have been here since Sunday and are staying for another week! It is wonderful to have Grammy and Papa helping out. Nolan has especially been the beneficiary of all the love and attention they have to give. And I will admit that the extra naps on my part have been very appreciated!

First Bath-Notice the chub on his body. Nolan took a month to get back to birth weight, and Parker was above birth weight at 8 days! Way to eat Parker!

It really has been wonderful adding Parker to our family. What a sweet, special little boy.

Parker Calhoun Jones

Parker Calhoun Jones joined our family on Monday, February 15, 2010. He weighed 8 lbs. 3 oz. and was 22 inches long. After a long 29 hour labor, he was successfully delivered as a VBAC . When he was born, he had a little trouble breathing and needed to spend his first few hours in the NICU, but then was given a clean bill of health and brought to our room. We feel so blessed to have this little guy in our family. Nolan has been the best big brother; singing to him, reading him books, showing him all his toys, and running in the room to see him as soon as he gets up in the morning. Parker seems to be a pretty happy guy, and he is settling in very well. Welcome to our family!
