William is my buddy. I have come to call him that as I spend time with him and get more and more excited each day that God has blessed us with a son. He is very passionate about his daily rituals-especially eating and crying-MY GOODNESS. Addison wasn't much of a crier-what can we say-we were definitely spoiled rotten with her. I'm loving every minute!
Not to bore you with all of the petty details of our never ending hospital stay-I did want to mention the highlights....
The morning of I convinced Mark to go eat a HUGE breakfast at Cracker Barrel-and I'm not a big breakfast eater-but I knew that I would have to go quite some time without eating or drinking-so chow down baby! I had biscuits, grits, eggs, bacon, a bite of a pancake, and made myself eat this suprisingly good steak. I have never eaten steak for breakfast. But I'm convinced it what got me through-I never got nauseous throughout the day. We left Cracker Barrel and I actually went home and was able to sleep for a couple of hours before showering and leaving the house.
Suprisingly enough he was born at 5:38 P.M.-The O.R. was running on time-praise the LORD- The first time I saw him I couldn't believe how tiny he was! 7lbs. 6 oz. 18 1/2 inches long!
We were expecting a much bigger boy!! But I'm thankful he was teeny tiny. I love holding a itty bitty baby. Once they had cleaned him up- Mark was holding him by my face and he started blowing bubbles. After that-I didn't see him until Saturday morning around 10-in the NICU. He apparently had some fluid on one of his lungs and once everything was all said and done before we went home-he also was diagnosed with a none worrisome heart murmur.
Our first doctor's visit to the Pediatrician went wonderfully and we love our new Pediatrician-Dr. Dixon with Kenmar Peds. We were asked to bring him back for a 2 week check up for a weight check and I can proudly say that as of friday this past week he is up to 8 lbs. and 2 oz.!!
We think this picture looks like my father in law-Larry

I love his little nose. According to the sonographer, he weighs 6 lbs. 13 oz. ALREADY!!!! He should be around 7 lbs. 13 oz. at birth-which was Addison's birth weight. How crazy is that?!!
Mark already thinks-from a 4D ultrasound picture-that he sadly looks like him. I beg to differ-You can't even tell yet!!!!!This is my last "full" week to finish up whatever it is I feel necessary to get done before my c-section. In some ways it feels like its coming too quickly and in other ways I feel like it can't come fast enough.... I think when I'm feeling the uncomfortable parts of the pregnancy that's when I wish today was THE DAY!

Tommorow begins the 14 day countdown-as we will have our precious William Andrew on Friday the 23rd. It's so hard to believe that we are THIS far along in this journey that seems-in some ways-like we were just on. I'm getting into boy mode that's for sure-I've been "interviewing" a lot of my friends who have little men in their lives getting tips and such.
I made this lovie/tag blankie for my friend Shannon who is having
her little man the day before me!
Not a great picture- but a Tennessee Volunteers Pillowcase dress
my friend from highschool ordered from me- SO ADORABLE!!
I have made another dress for Addison that is amazing-mainly due to the fact that my mom helped/made it for the most part :) I will post pics up later to this post of it!
