William was so excited when Adelaide and I came home from the hospital. He loves babies (just ask any of my friends who have babies!), and he was absolutely thrilled that he now had a baby sister of his own. We let Adelaide sleep in her carseat for a few minutes, and just looking at her was exciting for William. Then when I took Adelaide out of her carseat I asked William if he would like to hold her. He eyes got big as he said, "yes," and he was so excited that he was shaking! He was very calm and careful, but very excited!
William loves his baby sister a lot.

Look at that proud big brother!

I said, "Yes. What would you like to do to celebrate?"
"We can make a cake."
And so while Adelaide and I were in the hospital, William and my mom made cupcakes to celebrate. They were waiting for us when we came home. William had even iced six of them all by himself.
My mom was a wonderful help to us. William stayed at home with his Nana while we were in the hospital. Mom also stayed for a week after we came home from the hospital to help out with cooking and taking care of our two little ones. Thanks, Mom. :) You made the first two weeks with Adelaide much easier than they would have been otherwise.
