Official Big Brother!
Nicholas chose a special gift for William at the gift shop and so proudly carried his chosen treasure.
I'll never forget seeing my little boy enter the room. He did a quick scan of the room, pulled out a little stuffed monkey, tossed it on the foot of my bed, casually dropped the bag over his shoulder and pointed his little finger with an assertive, "turn on those tv's!"
After checking out all the buttons on the hospital bed, Nicholas was interested in meeting his new brother.
Apparently, he's also taken on a new hobby as Grammy's photography assistant.
Nice shot, baby!
Our first family of 4 photograph!
Daddy entered the OR to find a very nervous Mommy, who kept insisting that he "stay with the baby at all times....and don't pass out!"
At 1:17pm, our little angel joined us!
He was crying even before fully out and immediately reminded Mommy of what Nicholas looked like when he was born.
He was active and screeching - letting us all know he was finally here!

Our first elevator ride down to the 7th floor.
William's first bath didn't make him too happy.

"I like scooping with the purple shovel!"
"Where's the strawberries and matoes?"
My gardener boy!

I'm sure he'll be a huge help for baby's needs with his proficient operating skills of the mode selector....if only his big dupa wasn't hogging the chair!

In the end, Nicholas was a great assistant to Daddy - and the perfect inspector.
a new home
Turns out, she was encouraging two of her babies to come out for some fresh air!We're so happy mama and babies are doing well. Unfortunately for mama Robin, her nest was evicted from the playset's steering wheel last week! Nicholas couldn't accept that being there - he was obsessed with yelling "go away Mama Robin!"
