And on the third day...

We had a busy day today! Matthew behaved himself for his many doting visitors - thank you SO much to everyone who came to meet him! The nurses also requested at one point that we visit a couple of the other patient rooms around ours to teach these other little babies how to breastfeed. They thought that maybe Matt could instill some wisdom in the other newborns, because he's really doing well in the feeding department!

I took the photo above this evening after everyone left for the night. Matthew still isn't totally sure about opening both of his eyes all of the time (he seems to prefer the one eyed gaze, a la Gary Coleman's "whatchu talkin' 'bout, Willis" face), so when he was this alert, I had to snap a couple of shots. This was a little tough with him in my left hand and the camera in my right, but it turned out ok!

It looks as though we'll be discharged some time Friday afternoon. We're looking forward to getting Matthew home and to try the whole brother-introduction thing again on more familiar turf for Luke and Will. If anyone wants to come see us tomorrow in the hospital, just give me a call on my cell to talk about times!

Thanks again for checking in on us - this is a miraculous time for our family and we appreciate all of the excitement and well wishes that have been sent our way over the past several days!
