First days at home....

Well, we'll give you an update with some words now (also because I don't know how to do that crazy photobucket thing that Adam posted on here....).
Things are going quite well in the Willis household. I am feeling very well, especially considering the nature of our unexpectedly large baby. Even the doctor was shocked. I was measuring right on the whole time and never came across as potentially carrying a 10lb. baby. I set a new record for the doctor! She had never delivered such a large baby to a first-time mom! Woohoo for me! And thankfully, the actual labor went quite well and could have had a lot more complications due to his size. Apparently, I have a remarkable pelvis though. :)
And our little guy, Landon, is doing quite well also. He seems to have his nights and days mixed up, but what newborn doesn't?? (If you had a newborn that adjusted perfectly, I'd rather not hear about it). :)



Here we are arriving home from the hospital. He's home....now what do we do with him?!












The cats have both checked him out a little, but don't really notice him unless he's crying. They aren't all that impressed with him.














And yes, he does sleep a lot.



And here he is with his first playmate. This is Caleb Jon, born a week before Landon. He's approximately 8lbs. in this photo. Caleb is actually a little longer than Landon, but as you can see Landon has a lot more meat on him.
