Happy Birthday, Will!

William Paul Dunphy was born on Wednesday morning at 11:31am. He weighed 6 pounds and 11 ounces and was 20 inches long! He beat his due date by 4 days, and so Emma is exactly 21 months older than him.
Will greeted the world with quite a pouty face.

But Daddy was watching over him, and that made everything better.

Just 30 minutes old...

Will is named after all 4 of our grandfathers: William King, William Koons, Paul Hartman, and Charles Dunphy. We thought this was a great way to pay tribute to the men in our families.

One of our first new family pictures. Emma loves Will and is so generous with hugs and kisses for him. She loves holding him (of course) too, and is doing a really great job of being gentle with him. She is adjusting well to having him around!

We got home from the hospital Thursday evening and got one more picture together before Emma went up to bed. She was pretty tired in this one, but she had a wonderful greeting for us when we arrived home with Will.
