He's a pro at sleeping
Checking himself out in the mirror
Snuggling with Nana
Will was 2 weeks old on Thursday. We took him to the pediatrician for the first time and he was 7lb 10oz! That means he gained 1lb since Wednesday the 16th. He's also 21.25 inches so he's grown 1/2 inch since birth. He was 75th percentile for height and 50th for weight. I have a feeling he'll catch up on the weight thing though ;)

With Josh Murphey
With Stephanie Murphey and his buddy in gestation Sadie
Will has been a busy boy meeting all friends and family. Here are just a few of the people who have come to see him. We are looking forward to meeting his friend Sadie who is due in 2 months! Hopefully they'll play nicely together and not get into too much trouble.

I put on this outfit today to see if I could still wear it since I was only able to wear it once before Will arrived. It looks different on me without a baby belly but I was happy to know that it is still ok to wear in public. I looked back through pictures and was amazed that just 3 weeks ago I was dressed in the same outfit, quite pregnant and unable tie my shoes, and today I'm holding my 9 day old baby. Those last few weeks of pregnancy just drag by because you're so uncomfortable and these last 9 days have flown by! But one nice thing has been the rapid weight loss. Its the best diet I've ever been on! I've lost 29 lbs which is awesome since I only gained 20. I told Brad I should have babies more often if I can eat what I want and still lose weight! One thing the second picture has in it besides our precious little boy is some serious bags under my eyes. Oh well. He's worth it!

Proud big brother Jake
I can't believe a week has passed already! We've had a very busy week and have had something to do every day, which has worn us out! Thankfully he loves his carseat and riding in the car and Brad has been off to drive us around. Monday we took Will back to the hospital for a newborn outpatient visit and we had to take him for another followup yesterday. He was 6lb 6oz on Monday and had gained back up to 6lb 10oz Wednesday! They were very happy with that because they only expect a gain of 1/2 to 1oz per day for nursing babies and he had gained 2oz each day! Today we had professional pictures taken of them and I can't wait to see them! He was so good considering how long we were there and he was awake for many of them. He is already looking fuller in his cheeks to me and I'm sure now that we both have the hang of nursing that he will continue to plump up each day. I wish time would slow down a little though. I'm already sad that now its just 11 weeks until I go back to work :(
