Just a few photos of Will over the past month. The first is Will feeding the fish. He would feed them all day, every day if Chris would let him. The second is Santa in the tub. The last is Will with Lucky Charm marshmallows stuck to his lips. He found this very funny and so did I..... well at least the first time :)

Another nice change from my last hospital stay, we got a room fairly quickly by around 5:00 pm. We were really happy about this as Will wasn't allowed back in the recovery room and we wanted him to meet Abby that night. Plus, we wanted him to have some idea of where Mommy and Daddy were staying. My parents picked Will up from preschool and brought him over to the hospital. He came marching straight in and announced that he was going to sit on the couch and hold Baby Abby and that is what he did! Abby thoughtfully brought him a present (we are not above a little bribery)! Will was thrilled with his Tim Tebow shirt. He is a major Gator fan (more so than Chris and I) and it is currently difficult to convince him to wear anything that is not in some way Gator. Will brought Abby a card that he made with his class at preschool. So far they are off to a great start.
We had a long night in the hospital. Abby, who took to breastfeeding like a champ, pretty much wanted to nurse ALL NIGHT! By the time morning came, I was exhausted, sore and Abby still wanted more. Thankfully the nurse suggested a bottle since she seemed so hungry. After about two ounces of formula my baby calmed down and slept. Of course, it was now daytime and Chris and I were wide awake. It was also a busy day, a hospital is not a place to rest. The pediatrician came by and evaluated Abby, the audiologist came by and tested her hearing (she, of course, is perfect!), the PCA came by and checked my blood pressure (a lot!), the social worker came by and made sure we were prepared to be parents (not really but we faked her out), and someone else came by to complete Abby birth certificate and register her with the social security administration. I think about a zillion other people came in but they all begin to blur together after awhile.
We headed home with our new little girl. Will was at daycare so we had a some time to relax and enjoy being home. We all went to pick Will up from preschool. He was delighted to show off Baby Abby.
