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!

Oh, cute, cute, cute! I love the boys together - brothers are soooooo cute. I just wanna get in there and squish his squishiness! I've never had a squishy baby. Maybe the 4th time around...? Keep the pictures coming!

Oh, and I'm fairly certain I'm as big now at 23 weeks as you were the day you had Parker. Ugh.

I bet Parker was one of the biggest babies in the NICU that day. :) So glad to see that you are doing well!
