Introducing William Holden Walters

This is Deidre posting for Missy.. After a long day, Holden finally arrived safe and healthy at 5:05 p.m. He weighs 7 pounds, 15 ounces and is 21.5 inches long. Mommy and Baby are both doing great. I spent a little time with Missy and she was exhausted but thrilled, and Jack was one proud papa! Check back soon, I know Missy will be posting some more precious pictures!

Baby on the way!!!

We are so excited right now! I was supposed to be induced yesterday(tues) but my doctor rescheduled for tomorrow(thurs). I was disappointed because I have reached the miserable stage. Well, as I sat there this morning after yet another night of no sleep, my phone rang. It was my doctor's nurse who said that Dr. Meck wanted me to come on in tonight to be induced. I don't think I have moved that quickly in months!! I said "praise the Lord" and the sweet nurse said "amen to that!" So, looks like we'll get this party started tonight! My good friend, Deidre, is going to post a picture as soon as she can! I can't wait to meet him! Thank you Lord for getting us here! Check back to meet baby Holden!!!

I have always heard the saying "When it rains, it pours" in a very negative sense. Lately, I have felt this, but in a very POSITIVE way!! Please don't look at this as me bragging because I am not! I am just so thankful for blessings we have been given all at once! So, bare with me as I share!!
1. We are expecting our first child, William Holden, any day! He seems to be a healthy baby, and we can't wait to meet him!!!
2. Jack, who I am very proud of, will graduate from UMC at the end of May and will begin his residency in Jackson in Anesthesiology!!
3. We just moved into our first house!! WE adore it and can't believe it is ours!! We still have a lot of unpacking and decorating to do, but we know that will get done!!
4. Even though we won't be living a life of luxury, I am going to get to stay at home and take care of my boys!! It was a hard decision because I love where I work and my job, but anyone who knows me knows I have always wanted to do this!! We are already accustomed to a budget, and the Lord has made it where we can do this.
5. We have the BEST friends and family ever!! Thanks for being there!!! :)

Thanks for letting me share with you!! Have a great week!!!
