WALKER IS HERE!


Walker Oliver Wilbanks was born by caesarian section at 6:20 pm on September 24th.  He is 8 lb 9 oz, 21 3/4 inches long and has a head full of blonde hair.  Mom and baby are both doing well.  Walker is a tough little guy as he was born with a right pneumothorax (collapsed lung) which landed him directly in the NICU but the issue seems to be resolving itself on its own.  He is improving daily and will stay in the NICU until Sunday or Monday at which time Jamie and Matt can bring him HOME.  YAY! Mom and Dad make visits down to the NICU every 3 hours to nurse, encourage and sing silly little songs to Walkman.  Thank you so much for all of your prayers.  We are all in love already and can't wait for you all to meet Walker!
