First day at home

First day at home
Originally uploaded by rick loughery
Well... we are in to day 3 and its definitely a different experience the second time around. We are home now and Owen is adjusting well as a new big brother. On Tuesday, after the birth I drove home to get Owen. When I picked him up from Mimi’s he was definitely excited to see me but the first thing he asked was if we were going to go see mom and baby Tessa. When we got there Owen saw Tessa nursing and asked “Is that Baby Tessa...” I said, “I hope so.”

Owen was a bit timid – he didn’t want to hold her or get to close but he asked if he could sing her a song... he sang her his rendition of Twinkle Twinkle little star.

Tessa definitely has some lungs on her... even the nurses were surprised at how loud she could cry.

Tomorrow is day number four – and Rupert comes home from Pet Camp... the house will be full!

Walking with the Dinosaurs

We are still waiting for Ms. Tessa to arrive.... its been pretty long and now getting really tough for Kim.

I haven't had a chance to post some pictures from Owen's adventure to see Walking with the Dinosaurs. What a great experience it was for both of us. The dinosaurs looked so real and the whole experience captivated Owen. We have been to a couple of movies at the theater and it will be only a matter of 20 - 30 minutes before O gets bored and ready to explore the lobby... but not this time. Owen didn't flinch - he was totally mesmerized. At the intermission, I could not coax him at all to take a bathroom break. I tried offering ice cream, candy - nothing...

There are some more pictures on flickr.
