Just Being Sweet

We are still adjusting to life with a new family member, but here are some pictures of how we spend our time at home.  Daddy and Stella love to cuddle Watts.  Stella always wants to hold someone's hand, and since Watts can't complain about it yet, he's her new favorite victim.  Cille is very relieved...
I think he was having a good dream...
Another angle.  I get a little obsessive with the camera...
Stella loves to hold Watts...

And Watts loves to be held...

You guys want some cookies?

Please read that blog post title in your best Corky Romano voice.  You may have been wondering what Cille has been up to while her baby brother has been hogging the spotlight.  She's been keeping her energy up by eating lots of chocolate chip cookies...
YUM!

Visitors

Once we were home lots of people were eager to come over and meet Watts.  Uncle Chad and Aunt Alaina were two of our first visitors.  They weren't able to join us at the hospital because they were in Florida on vacation when Watts was born.  He paid them back by making sure his diaper leaked on Chad, so I guess we know what Watts thinks about people who go to the beach without him...
Courtnay and Peter stopped by next.  How cute are they, seriously?
Aunt Bobbie had to come give Watts some lovin'...
Molly Jane Millet showed up that afternoon.  Stella was a little excited to see her; can you tell?

Cille chose her own wardrobe for the Millets' visit.  I believe that is a size 6 or 9 month cheerleading top.  I'm not really sure where she found it or how she squeezed herself into it...

These two look more like sisters than Stella and Cille...
Aaron was stoked that there was finally a BOY baby after all those girls...
So was Ethan.  For pictures of Ethan loving on Cille at this size, check out this link.  They've both grown a little bit since then...
Cille chose to pair her tiny top with a pull-on diaper.  Tres chic...
Mrs. Missy finally got a turn with Watts...
The Zeringue family came all the way to Baton Rouge just to meet Watts!  (Imagine that, Jamie.  Hint.)  
Not long ago we were cuddling this sweet baby.  Look what a big boy he is now!
Selena enjoyed lots of snuggles with Watts...
And she even let Jeremy have a turn...
Whew!  All those visitors can really wear a guy out!

Going Home?

On Thursday morning it was time for our stay at the hospital to end, but when the pediatrician visited Watts that morning, he was a little jaundiced.  This had never happened with the girls, so of course Daddy and I went into full freak-out mode.  Daddy tried his hardest to persuade the nurses to let us stay until the next time they could test Watts (at 60 hours), but for some reason they were really in a hurry to get rid of us.  Imagine that?  Who would want us to leave?  

Daddy probably won't like this picture, but I think it is sweet so I am posting it...two of my favorite guys...
Mawmaw and Pawpaw came to the hospital to help us with loading the car and checking out...
Watts was very handsome in his going home outfit...

I did not fix my hair that day, so that's why it's a little out there...okay, a lot...
The hospital was so new that the nurses got us lost on the way from the delivery room to our regular room, and again on the way from our regular room to the car...Did I mention that I always feel like an idiot riding in a wheelchair when I am perfectly capable of walking?
Normally we have about 100 pictures of us leaving the hospital, but let's just say that the security is a little tighter at Woman's than it is at River Parishes and there were not that many photo ops on the way down, what with the threats of arrest and all (L-O-N-G story.)  Instead, here is Watt's first trip up the driveway with Daddy...
The hospital really treated Daddy like a second class citizen and insisted that I carry Watts everywhere, so I let Daddy have a turn with the little guy when we got home...
Watts was worn out from all the excitement, so he caught some z's on his changing pad...
Better store up some energy...your sisters will be home soon...

Guillory Love!

Watts was a very special birthday present for two important folks that we love tons!  August 7th just happens to be Granny's (Lucille Sutterfield, who Cille was named for) birthday AND John George Guillory's!  Granny wasn't there to welcome Watts with us, but we know that she was enjoying the view of her new great-grandson from her heavenly mansion.  John made his way to Baton Rouge the next day to meet his new fishing buddy... 
The Guillory clan (minus Sean) loving on our little guy...
I think John chose his wardrobe to let Watts know that they'll be watching lots of LSU football together...
Emma was the first "baby" that Damon ever really encountered.  Look at her now!
When Cille was born, Talia really wanted to hold her.  I recall someone (I won't name names) telling poor T that she couldn't hold the baby because she was a baby.  Well, as you can see, she is a big girl now and couldn't get enough of Watts...
Kelly was eventually able to wrestle him away from the girls...
Sweet Sadie gave Watts lots of Guillory love...
It was so special to have friends from "home" make the trip all the way to Baton Rouge to greet our son!  We love you, Guillorys!

Another Visit

On Wednesday the girls chose to come back to the hospital and see their brother again instead of going to school.  He was a little sleepy, so Cille cuddled right up to check him out...

Stella is the real snuggler in the family and she did her best to teach her brother her ways...


Cille was more concerned that Watts share her love of "nu-nus"...



We love this little guy so much!

Cille and Stella also tattooed themselves with "big sister" tattoos compliments of the friendly folks at Daddy's office.  Cille enjoyed showing off her muscles AND her tattoo...
