We have been home for about 3 weeks now with Wilson, and he really is part of the family now. Kind of hard to remember what it was like without him! The longer he is here, the more comfortable I see him getting. When we first brought him home, he really never wanted to get down and play, and didn't have too many emotions, except for the one where he looks like deer in headlights! But now he is crawling all over the place, playing with toys, and sometimes even when we hold him, he wants to get down! Huge progress on that front! The little smiles that we get too just melt my heart. He definitely can have his moments during the day (as do I getting used to two boys!), but he has been overall a great baby! Next week is Wilson's birthday, so we are having a party with some family and friends.(I hope he doesn't get too overstimulated!) We have also been taking him out into public more, and he even seems to be more comfortable out and about than before. The true test will be when we leave home for a couple nights for the first time.(Not sure what to think about that!) I will try and update more after Wilson's birthday, I am sure we will have lots of fun stories from that event! :)

Now we have been home a little over a week, and things have calmed down a bit, so I am able to finally update! Things have been going better than I have expected with Wilson. He is such a different boy from the first day we met him to now. When we first met him, he was a little boy who showed little emotion, and looked like a deer in headlights most of the time! But now, it has been fun to see his personality come out. He is a boy who has a serious yet funny personality. He is a very mellow little guy, which is one of the reasons he has been so adaptable. He is getting more and more confident each day, and I just love to see him grow in his trust in us, and his surroundings. Hudson has taken to him quite well,but there has been a little jealousy at times. Its fun for him to come along with either Adam or I when we wake Wilson up from his nap. Hudson is right there along with us, and has even become a little protective of his brother! Still needs to work on sharing the toys though! :) Its taken a little time for Wilson to adjust to the schedule here too, but now he has adapted really well. This week was his first Dr. appt. as well, and he got 4 vaccinations which wasn't fun. But not much we can do about that! I will try and update as much as I can about our adventures at home, and thats all I have for now!
