Meet Our New Addition, Will

It's been over a week since baby Will made his appearance, and things here are fantastic but busy.  We're feeling very lucky and I'm trying to soak in every minute of newborn-ness before it slips through my fingers.  Maya is a lovely big sister, delighted by Will and interested in checking on him and watching him . . . but not very interested in touching him, which is perfect because she's picked up a scary sounding cough at school. 

Here are a scattering of pictures from Will's birth day (nothing graphic, unless you count the first picture of my big belly), the hospital, and a few from his first week at home.

Thursday night, we went in for an induction.

Leaving for the hospital

On Friday night, Will was born.

25.5 hours later, meeting our boy


Dave meets Will

 
 
On Saturday, Maya came to the hospital to meet her little brother.
 

"He's waving at you, Maya!"

"His toes are so tiny!"
 
Maya brought a present for Will . . .

and Will had some presents for Maya, too.
 

 
On Sunday, Will came home.
Dave made Maya these fantastic "new big sister" stickers.  She's making a "smiling face" :)

Leaving the hospital

 Getting dressed to go
 
 I think that Maya was thinking "I can't believe you brought him home!  This is so fun!"

 
 And a few other random shots from this week.

And the final picture in my series of pregnancy shots.  This picture was taken on Will's due date---I would have been exactly 40 weeks pregnant . . . instead he is 5 days old.
