Holden is becoming more alert and having more awake time. He makes the cutest little faces!! He is changing so much and continues to be a joy!!
Poor Mr. Wilson! He has done really well adjusting, but he does miss being center of attention!! My Aunt Sharon is a nurse at the Clarksdale hospital and she sent us lots of free diapers!(THANKS SO MUCH!!) My mom was unpacking them while she was here, and Wilson wanted some attention so he laid down in the middle of the diapers and would not move. Bless his heart!!

Again, time is moving so fast!!! Week 4 was filled with a couple of firsts!! Holden tried out the swing for the first time and LOVED it! He especially loved looking at the fish swimming above!! Thanks Aunt Sue Sue and Sara Chesley for letting us borrow it! He also had his first encounter with the rattle. He thinks its pretty neat but he really likes trying to get it in his mouth! One of my favorite pics from this week is of him holding the monkey rattle. It looks like he is holding it! He is such a sweet baby boy! Every day I look at him and fall more and more in love!!!

A lot was going on during this time and I feel horrible for not having more pics of Holden! The day he was two weeks old was the day Jack received his white, long doctor coat. The day after that, he graduated from medical school and officially became Dr. Jackson Lee Walters. We are so proud of daddy!!! After graduation, the family gathered at our house for lunch. The following Tuesday, we visited the pediatrician for the first time. She is awesome and she gave Holden an A+++. We go back in July for the first round of shots. He weighed 9 lbs. 6 ounces. Then on Friday, we traveled to Clarksdale for my cousin's wedding. While at Jack's parent's house, Holden watched the mobile in his crib there for the first time and loved it!! We got back to Jackson on Sunday and Jack left for Scotland on Monday for a golf trip with his dad. This was a graduation present. It will be a two week trip. excuse me for posting so many collages. It makes it easier to share a lot of pics. :)

Here is Holden's first bath at three days old. He did what little boys are known for when we were changing him and he soaked himself, me, and the changing table so we decided to head to the bath. Ofcourse, it was only a sponge bath due to the cord and circumcision. How precious is he? These are still two of our favorite pics!!
Well, when we went for Holden's two day check up at the hospital, his billie ruben level was high which meant that he had jaundice. We had to take the billie blanket home and keep him on it for three days. He did really well with it, especially since it was attached to him at all times, except when he had a diaper change. He looked so cute in his diaper and billie blanket. We called him glow baby because it had a fluorescent light that made him glow.
