342-st-john-health-system.jpgWe love St. John's Medical Center here in Tulsa so much that Mary, after having spent three days there just a week ago for the birth of Will, wanted to go back and spend the weekend.

In actuality, Mary suffered all last week with a 102/103 degree temperature fighting an infection that didn't respond to antibiotics. After a week without the fever breaking, her doctor ordered her to the hospital on Friday for intravenous treatment. St. John's was incredibly accommodating to the fact that Mary is still nursing Will (which miraculously filters out all the infection) and put her and Will on the pediatrics floor in a private room. The only catch was that somebody (me) had to stay with her to take care of Will when she was unable. So, the three of us spent the last three days and two nights together at St. John's while Ma and Pa took care of Drew at their home.

Through the miracle of modern medicine and antibiotic cocktails, Mary made an incredible 48-hour recovery. We are all home now, a little tired, but feeling much better.

Drew had the greatest time this weekend playing baseball with Pa. Here he is hitting a line drive right into Pa's hands.


After a good hit, Drew will run the bases (tree-retaining wall-other tree) in order to get a home run. Pa tried his best, but just couldn't tag Drew out.


Every home run is capped off by Drew's his own patented "slide" into the t-ball home plate which he developed all by himself. Probably because he's watched major league players barrel through home plate no matter what was in the way, he does the same thing.

Drew Holding Will


Well, it looks like this is turning into a Drew and Will blog. I can't imagine a better direction for it to go. Drew loves to hold his little brother and Will seems to enjoy it too.

This morning Drew and I went to Drew's soccer practice and afterwards enjoyed some Jamba Juice. We then went by Daddy's office, got the car washed and took a walk at around a small pond. At home, we cooled off for a while and then went to the park near our house at the insistence of Drew despite the 100 degree heat. Finally, after reading some books, we both enjoyed a late afternoon nap together.


Later this evening, between feedings, Will napped on my chest for about two hours without making a peep. It was the most wonderful thing.


Drew continues to check out Will. He is completely unfazed by the arrival of his new sibling. No signs of jealousy or acting up in any way. Drew has only been incredibly loving, making sure Will has his "Ted" and that his blankets are pulled up around him. He seems naturally very gentle to him and offers unsolicited soft hugs and kisses.

We're a family of four...our first picture together!


Will found his thumb today and then he found it again...and again. I can't get enough pictures of Drew and me checking out Will. Proud father...ya think!

This is the very first photo of David William, "Will," just seconds after being born at 9:33 a.m. this morning. He is 7lbs, 1oz and 19 1/4 inches long.


Here is Will holding Daddy's finger and yawning in the nursery during his initial assessment.


Mommy and Will, both are doing terrific.

Drew was very excited to see his new little brother previously known as "littlebrothersister."


Daddy, Drew and Will.


One very proud older brother and his new best friend.

On the 4th we went to Ma and Pa's house for a little swimming. Afterwards, Pa grilled out and we enjoyed some backyard fireworks. Later, we all drove out to the river to enjoy Tulsa's fireworks. Drew was so tired out, that he fell asleep on the ride home.
